We Must Protect Queen

Okay folks, shit just got real.

Brian May, PhD in Astrophysics, Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and lead guitarist of Queen… has Covid-19.

Okay? Are you happy now? Enough screwing around. You’re screwing around too much. We must protect (the) Queen. We as a global community have to knock off all of the bullshit and keep Queen safe!

Get the effing vaccine. Get the effing booster. Practice social distance. No, don’t practice it, perform it. Be a friggin’ professional at it. Lock the Fuck Down. Wear a mask when you’re around other people. Wash your god damned hands and stop volunteering to be disease carriers. Treat the plague like a plague for a change.

Also, get well soon, Doc*.

*Is Doctor the appropriate title? He has a PhD, but do all PhD’s come with the title of Doctor? I think they do for science. Oh well. Just get the damn vaccine.

Lunch Break

I feel compelled to post something during lunch breaks. Why is that? Why must I give in to the need to overshare?

There is literally nothing going on today. I have done some unusual, sort of interesting stuff at work today. I have a meeting to get through this afternoon. All is well on the work front.

I haven’t done any christmas shopping yet. I don’t know what to get anyone, but I have to get on it. With the shipping issues going on these days I can’t put faith in last minute stuff. I have to get it done and get it done soon. But what to do? I don’t know.

So… Omicron… Asshole. It’s in California and Minnesota. The person in Minnesota recently travelled to New York… so safe to say it’s all over the country now. I’m so tired of this. The rumors are that it’s significantly more contagious, but not as severe as other recent variants. Still, not as severe sort of implies you aren’t going to the hospital to be hooked up to a machine that breathes for you but it does not imply that you don’t get really fucking sick, you know?

Okay. Back to work with you, lunch break boy.

Wash your hands, social distance, wear a mask, get the vaccine… don’t let yourself get sick and in doing so don’t get others sick. Seems pretty simple to me.
