    I feel like I'm about the only person in the building who got off easy :soma: Much of my department went home early and a lot of other people have called in sick . . . although I suspect some of them are also suffering from a case of the Fridays. It's sunny and 60 here.

    Attended church for the first time since cold weather chased us from the parking lot. No congregational singing. Color-coded ribbons on pins to display how comfortable you are with close contact. Every other pew roped off with painter's tape and an amusing sign.

    It was also Annual Report Sunday, and despite Covid crippling our usual fundraisers the church bank account is healthier than a year ago. :)

    update! No side effects. Thus I most likely didn't get side effects from the first shot, I just happened to get mild cold symptoms the day of the first shot.

    I guess it's good that churches are trying to gain a sense of normalcy but this whole COVID situation is one big mockery of how things used to be. :( And the way the rules are different everywhere you go and change constantly and sometimes aren't based in common sense. It's getting crazier & crazier.

    Those pew signs are great.

    Home alone tonight because wife is at a comedy night.

    One state to the east there was a football game today with a crowd of 78,000. One state to the west they are all in the middle of a strict 3 day lockdown after a single case was detected in someone connected to a quarantine facility.

    It really feels like the approach of shutting everything down to trace any possible spread, after any case is detected in the community is really working.

    The one gas station I visit has uncovered its self-serve soup and chili station.

    I've seen just a couple of yard sale signs the past few weeks. I'll probably skip this season as well.

    I've been inside a gas station maybe 3-4 times in the last year, and haven't been inside a fast food place since last March(?) or even had fast food since then as well.

    New Jersey - full service gas stations, bitches! :dancer:

    Anyhoo - end of July, the local plastic model show is finally happening. Basically a model contest and a model kit flea market. Each room is roughly gymnasium sized. I'm thinkin' of it, and hoping there aren't as many anti-maskers in this crowd as I'm afraid there are.

    So I was waiting for publix and the health department to contact me and playing phone tag with them, and I tried CVS and walgreens to get the shot and they did not have any clue.

    So today I finally needed something from walmart, and while I was in there they had an announcement to sign up for the vaccine.

    So my first shot is this thursday morning. If I knew I just had to go to fucking walmart I would have gone last week.

    I am going to let the man stick it to me.

    I am hoping for a tail as my side effect.

    No congregational singing again this week but we did do communion. Little double-capsule doodads in the shape of a wineglass with the juice in the top and the wafer in the base. Peel off one end or the other to get at the elements.

    We can't even do that over here, since no matter what steps are taken to secure the bread and grape-juice (our congregation does not use wine, since we have a former alcoholic among us), you have to take off your mask to do it, and that is not allowed in French churches (or any other gatherings other than family in the home). Which suits me fine.

    So we have replaced communion, which normally is part of our service every Sunday, with a meditation about a text that reminds us of the sufficency of Christ's sacrifice. Being Zwinglian where communion is concerned, we don't see it as anything more than a memorial, and we can remember just fine without the elements.

    When some people peel off one end do they win a free Whopper or large fries?

    He had a cork to put in it when he wasn't smoking a cigarette.

    Pro tip: Beer is just liquid bread.

    One in a million wins a luncheon with John the Baptist. Considering his dietary habits, I'm not sure I'd want to claim the prize.

    I've been keeping these for years for hospital and home visits. I talked my congregation into using them so we could return to some semblance of normalcy.

    Is John the Baptist the dude who had his head cut off? I might be thinking of some other bible character.

    I have come here to drink the blood of christ and kick ass, and all I got is fucking grape juice.
