bluejeansonfire: Stay home, wear a mask, give a damn.
Bennie Crabtree: Fauci just said the US is fast approaching 100k new infections a day. And this guy has to go get supplies.
yakmans_dad: Yesterday, I had to take some documents to be mailed to the post office. It was ... insane. The clerks were wearing their masks pulled down below their nostrils. All of them. There were maybe 12 customers who were mostly wearing masks. The exception: the guy right in front of me. He looked like that guy who played the toady in the Rachel Weiss Mummy. And he just wasn't not wearing a mask. He was closer than normal to the guy in front of him. TV dialog close. Well, well. So, I stayed well back. Just insane. He exhibited the attitude, "If I got it, so will you."I'm in the 1-5 mortality cohort so maybe I'm overly cautious. But I don't think so. I don't want to die and I really don't want to survive and live like a walking invalid.
I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: I am going to have to stock up in the next couple of days. Getting low on food, and will need a long weekend's worth of tasty tasty beer.
I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: bluejeansonfire: Stay home, wear a mask, give a damn.My contacts since March 16th, 2020Grocery Store, 8 timesLiquor Store, 6 timesBuilding maintenance guy, once (small water leak.)Butcher, 3 times (and that was "call and they bring your order out to the car.")I think that's it. I've set a rule that I don't drink if I'm working the next day simply to keep the booze consumption levels somewhere around "too much" and not "omgwtf." Having done so, I'm still saving a bunch of money because...well...can't spend it anywhere. Movies, sports, and haircuts can wait, godammit.Sports: I should be going to a baseball game this evening, but obviously, that's not happening. Sigh, but it is what it is. Wouldn't go if I could.Hair. I grabbed my beard trimmer, and said "Hair. One of us isn't leaving alive. Draw!" Hair hasn't been this short in over...shiat, 30 years. I'm keeping it, at least in summer.Does it look good? Who the fark cares, I'm not seeing anybody face to face! Actually, it doesn't look too bad. I'm sure the back is ragged, but fark it, can't see it, not a problem.Movies. I don't watch movies in theaters anyway, because the image sucks, the sound sucks, and all the people with glowing rectangles suck enough to cause noticeable curvature in space-time.I am going to have to stock up in the next couple of days. Getting low on food, and will need a long weekend's worth of tasty tasty beer. STFU liver you're not done yet.
