Gonna start a sock account on my favorite message board

Sorry: borad

omg, at the mechanic's a while ago there was this bernese puppy, the goodest goddamn puppy, who pranced up to me and sat so politely and hopefully with his tail all athump at my feet while i waited at the counter and i told him that he was the best and most beautiful puppy in the world but no, i couldn't give him his rightful pets because there's this pandemic and i didn't want to risk spreading germs around, and he flopped over to tempt me with his fluffy belly and not rubbing that belly was the hardest thing i've ever had to not do.

a day of reckoning will come, by god, when i find that puppy and give him the bellyrub of a lifetime.

Hanging with my folks and family in general next month is the first step as we’ve all got/are getting our shots. Also making it a belated 80th birthday celebration for my dad in combo with a less belated 50th for me, so hey.

frogbs, Monday, 22 March 2021 03:41 (four weeks ago) link

My plan is to be very happy that many fewer people are getting sick and dying unnecessarily and in a painful, awful way, but the perhaps sad truth is that I don't have any particular plans for myself and I don't expect my own life to change very much.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Monday, 22 March 2021 04:35 (four weeks ago) link

I mean, to be clear, I will go places and do things instead of not going places and not doing things, I have places to go and things to do, but what I've learned over the past year is that not going places and not doing things isn't as different from going places and doing things as I would have thought.

this is gonna pretty self-important but my kids were 5 and 3 when this started, now they're 6 and 4, and that's a huge chunk of their development that my family just missed. they've changed so much physically, mentally, and emotionally. I feel sad that they didn't get to see it happen.

frogbs, Monday, 22 March 2021 20:24 (four weeks ago) link

totally. I mean I live in Montreal and they live in Chicago, so it's not like I'd see them more than a couple times a year max, but they were 3 and 5 last time, now 5 and 7. On the plus side, the 7-year-old is now verbally and socially adept enough to call me with no parental involvement, which has been fun (sadly, the 5-year-old absolutely refuses to video chat, so I feel like I don't really know him).

on a lighter note, I too am excited for a professional haircut

I'll be fully vaccinated plus the two weeks on April 12. All I've got in mind is eating a nice leisurely dinner outdoors at a restaurant again. I would love to pick up dudes again at bars, but the unvaccinated sleazo count in Miami-Dade County is exorbitant.

We'll have to reexamine our dating practices, no? "Show me your vac card before responding to my OKCupid message."

So who you gonna call? The martini police (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 22 March 2021 21:52 (four weeks ago) link

I briefly contemplated trying to pick up someone at the vaccination clinic, but none of the men were my type.

There are a lot of things I can't wait to do, but making concrete plans at this point feels too much like tempting fate for me.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 23 March 2021 21:42 (four weeks ago) link

i totally get that, jon. like i'm not booking plane tickets just yet, merely feeling of something like ☆anticipation☆ rather than dread for the first time in over a year. there's still fuck of a long way to go, for sure! but more people are getting jabbed every day (never enough, but always more) and soon... well, soon the mass shootings will start up again in earnest and it's back to numbly doomscrolling on the couch, hahahahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 25 March 2021 20:20 (three weeks ago) link

Ha, no, no intention of disparaging anyone who has the shots or has them on the calendar! I'd say that is plenty of reason to make concrete plans. I was just saying without any timeline or shots on the radar, it's tough for me to get my hopes up.

Will say it's going to be a really hard summer watching from the sidelines.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Thursday, 25 March 2021 20:23 (three weeks ago) link

lol i figured jon, i just am like also crossing my fingers that something silly doesn't happen between now and me getting my second vaccine

No big plans for travel this summer, just the usual camping/hiking around the Pacific NW. We need to renew our passports this year and after that we'll think about next year. For me the biggest thing will be feeling more at my ease while doing otherwise normal things, like entering enclosed public spaces for a purpose less exacting than supplying the bare necessities of life. Including public toilets when I'm away from home!

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Sunday, 28 March 2021 00:26 (three weeks ago) link

ease, i remember ease, am really looking forward to being able to breathe in public again without envisioning a miasma of plague ghosts colonizing my juicy airsacks.

cat, Sunday, 28 March 2021 00:31 (three weeks ago) link

I traveled internationally for the first time (as an adult) in 2019 and I was really amped up about seeing other places in the world, which didn't end up happening. So I guess we'll re-plan that trip to Istanbul for 2022 or something like that!

i don’t live on the beach, if that’s the question

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 6 April 2021 22:20 (two weeks ago) link

The Oregon coast is about a two hour drive from our house. We plan to go there next Tuesday, once it is established that our 2nd dose of Pfizer this Thursday doesn't lay us too low to enjoy ourselves. We figure a four day interval between the injection and the trip should suffice.

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Tuesday, 6 April 2021 22:26 (two weeks ago) link

I’m just saying if you live by the beach, go to the beach! You’re not going to get COVID at the beach.

DJI, Wednesday, 7 April 2021 05:25 (one week ago) link

Yeah, I'm honestly a little confused about the connection between vaccinations and going to the beach. It really shouldn't be an issue either way unless it's jammed packed with people.

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Wednesday, 7 April 2021 05:41 (one week ago) link

When the Ocean City (MD) boardwalk reopened, the news was full of images of crowds who had rushed back. I went for a few days at the end of the season; on the beach itself it wasn't hard to keep 6+ feet away from other people.

I just got a text confirming my second Pfizer shot on Saturday. LOL gluttony, but for me the pandemic will be over when I'm able to feed my face at a Chinese buffet.

Infanta Terrible (j.lu), Thursday, 8 April 2021 14:56 (one week ago) link

Beaches were always safe tbh

So who you gonna call? The martini police (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 8 April 2021 14:58 (one week ago) link

If your beach looks like Coney Island in the 1950s, I'd steer clear. Of course, I'd give the same advice without a pandemic.
