today going to be a unproductive day

can't wait until I get the email that im working the 4am shift.

look we could either figure out a way to make the vpn work or we could not. the latter required a lot less effort and money.

I once had a twelve hour surgery and i remember nothing between the needle for the anesthetic going in at 6 am and waking up strapped to a table with a respirator in the icu for recovery the next morning? Two days later? I have no real timeframe for when I woke up.

Anyway hr keeps asking if we feel safe returning to work and I keep mashing that “Nope” button in the survey. Gonna ride this out till september guaranteed . I see no way for us to go back to the old normal at this point.

this is one unexpected benefit to having a kid in daycare during quartimes. their anti-covid protocols are also anti-everything protocols. normally we’d be sick roughly every third week at minimum

aside from masks and social distancing (and even masks should still be worn if you are sick) all of this poo poo is thing we probably should be doing anyway. its insane the amount of stuff we are going to go back to not cleaning once we open em up

well i mean none of the health experts were really saying masks didnt work because they honestly believed they didnt work. they were lying to prevent a run on masks so there were enough for healthcare workers. maybe the government shouldnt constantly ruin its credibility if it wants people to listen

the Surgeon General was saying it very loudly but lol at trusting anything that comes from a trump appointee

or anything out of the current us government

i think dives are doing ok because they tend to have food that does well in takeout (burgs and wings and poo poo) and also the complete disintegration of liquor laws (though bars in pa have always been takeout friendly about beer)

we did a corona safe laptop pickup a bit ago and I finally got around to setting it up and the dock requires two power adapters to run

the last dock I had would constantly click for some reason, couldn't maintain a usb connection for more than an hour, and would regularly bluescreen the computer when I plugged it in

put it back in the box. I haven't moved my laptop more than once since wfh I can unplug three cables
