Checking into Caturday.

</rant>

So, I went to Target yesterday.  I just don't understand the "logic" of some individuals.  Kid wearing mask, parent not wearing a mask.  Once they get home, if parent was exposed, guess what? Now kid will be exposed at home.  Same situation with the parents wearing masks and kid not wearing a mask out in public.  What was disturbing was how many I saw wearing scrubs without masks.  I would have thought if they were wearing scrubs that they were in health care and therefore taking proper and appropriate precautions.  I even saw one employee "wearing" a mask, beneath his mouth!    The rest of the employees that I saw were wearing masks properly over nose and mouth.

Proper precautions mean masks, washing hands as appropriate, and staying at home as much as possible.

I am also seriously annoyed at commercials about these "unprecedented times".  These times are TOTALLY precedented.  There are oldsters who either remember polio or knew those who did.  We might not remember it, other than something out of history books and historical records, but the Spanish Flu was only a century ago.  Before that?  I would be shocked if epidemics and regulations restricting public movement didn't go back before written history.

Forget about that one.  Think that was the inspiration behind The Cat Who... mystery book series?

I own that movie. Grayson Hall (Dr Julia Hoffman on Dark Shadows) plays the kidnapped bank teller.

When DC (Darn Cat) shows up at the apartment where the bank robbers are hiding out with their kidnap victim, Miss Miller (Grayson Hall), she takes off her wristwatch & scratches a message on the back & puts it on DC's neck.

I left a nibble of lightly seasoned rolled omelette for Maggie.  She sniffed it and turned up her nose at it.  Perhaps in hopes of whipped cream from "Daddy".

Earlier today, I had a cabinet mrrp at me.  Yes, Maggie was in the cabinet mrrping.  (That combination of meow and purr.)

We just put a contract against a new house. I WILL GET A LIBRARY ALL OF MY OWN! AND SPACE FOR TEA! AND A GARAGE! *bounce bounce bounce*

We can't wait to see what Cat5 does when they realize they get DOUBLE the space to roam around, before glomming onto mommy. ;)

Relax and take a deep breath.  Things will get better.

Next year when the Second Wave hits and a good three or four million Americans drop dead (the stupidest millions with any luck), life and labor can be in our favor.

My first cat is my lucid dreaming signal.  He appears all the time, and usually I greet him as I would have on any waking day.  Sometimes in the dreams I'll tell myself to appreciate him before he's gone (he left this world over ten years ago).  I can smell the dandruff in his fur, hear the quiver in his meow as he brushes against me, no matter how ridiculous or calm the dreamscape.

Sometimes it triggers a lucid dream, mostly it makes me wake up when my dreaming mind remembers when he's gone.

But it's nice to see him when I can.

It was a calm rant, so there is that.

A pic of Max on my spouse's desk in apology of incoming vent.

</incoming vent>

As far as the second wave is concerned, states are "opening" or relaxing regulations already, which means that the second wave has already started before the first one is over.

I think it is the needless suffering and deaths that bothers me most.  Just because individual x is too stupid to survive, that doesn't mean that x should risk lives around oneself or the suffering family members and friends will experience if x dies.  Assuming that x's friends and family don't consider x a waste of space.

And it isn't just deaths from this.  Plenty of individuals are experiencing lasting pulmonary, cardiac and neurological effects from this.  I see headlines like "x children are suffering from mystery illness y in these states" and wonder if this is yet another lasting effect from covid-19.

I was raised by an RT, (respiratory therapist).  I take preventing preventable disease seriously.  It drives me up the wall to see when others don't, but I try not to let it get to me.

I suspect that one of three things will happen, civil war between rational adults and the Republican party over them declaring Martial Law to prevent losing power in November, a rational government elected in November and getting appropriate measures in place to deal with this as soon as politically possible or stupidity continuing and the rest of the world quarantining the US until the virus dies down or WHO can get us all vaccinated.  And if getting people to wear masks is hard, there are people out there who would rather risk children suffering preventable diseases from polio to measles to chickenpox rather than vaccinate.

Do what I can to prevent getting or spreading.  Try not to worry about others.  Wait and see.  It's about all I can do.  Fatalistic, if I get it, I get it, hopefully I'll wind up at home and not in the morgue.  Optimistic, because I'm doing what I can to prevent getting it.

It's a subsection of my collection, along with The Cat from Outer Space, and The Three Lives of Thomasina.

I keep thinking of a different UK village during that time.  They had the delta cox(something) inhibitor mutation.  Most survived.  Which, oddly enough, also confers virtual immunity to HIV today.  But yeah, Black Death villages just closing their borders to stop spread out of the village.  Yet people complain about masks to reduce spread to almost zero.
