Living the Dream


So far in the last month and a half 4 of my coworkers have caught it and I just found out like a half-dozen people in my extended family caught it (double-boostered). They're all feeling pretty much fine for the most part (cold-like symptoms) but it's going around more than I recall than with BA.1. Mostly because nobody is doing a single thing to avoid it for the most part. We just had commencement last week and this is the first time in two years it was done in-person. Super-spreader event probably.

That being said, vaccination rate for the university is ~97% with like a 70-something percent booster rate.

you can also request a health worker to come swab you (for free) here, but idk anyone who has actually done it so i can't speak to its efficacy

that sounds much better though and i wish cryptomayor eric adams wasn't in charge

tbf my mayor mostly sucks, too, but she's at least done good with this

though now we're just not reporting covid rates so that's bad!

There are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

currently trying to figure out if we have covid and it's kind of poo poo show

my kid started getting symptoms on friday. we gave him a rapid test that day and it came up negative. he was also tested on tuesday as part of his regular school testing process and came up negative. i started having symptoms on sunday so i took a rapid test and it was negative. my wife has no symptoms and feels fine. all three of us have been taking rapid tests since then, i think 9 or 10 between the three of us and we haven't had a positive test. does this mean we don't have covid? who the heck knows!

trying to navigate getting a pcr through our doc's office which is a delightful experience as well

lol itís the flu

Dude's independently rich, his dad was a big deal ortho surgeon and left him a giant portfolio of rental properties, he doesn't need to work. Dude has four ferraris lol

We're bleeding talent at an insane rate and the directors are panicking, so he essentially took a two month vacation

no one's talking about taking my raise away so I'll take it. He and I had the same title and will continue to have the same title.

he's the one rich guy I've ever met who isn't a complete twat about it. He has one of those 1980s lovely Ferarris so when he got to work I used to play the Magnum PI theme.
