    The Medical Thread: Vaccine Search / Staying Healthy / Treatments Etc

    My coworker who has been hesitant but decided to get the shot didn’t end up going to her appointment tonight. Her husband got mad and wouldn’t let her :fragile: I’m so disappointed and also now worried about her at home. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything good come out of a relationship...

    #Canada150 (Canadian politics and related issues)

    Almost 18 hours later, I got to go home! It went by quickly. I wanted to throw something at the PPC candidate representative that was observing the ballot counting. She wouldn’t wear a mask so was wearing a face shield. But she kept pushing it up :rolleyes: I had to tell her to step back a...

    We haven’t had anyone cause any issues yet. People have been surprisingly lovely, tbh.

    The polling place I’m working at is not big enough. It’s fine if there’s no line but there’s no room for any line at all :wall: Oh well, thankfully while it’s been fairly steady, no poll has had big line ups so far. One thing that I love about working elections is the excitement that new...

    The Medical Thread: Vaccine Search / Staying Healthy / Treatments Etc

    Oh, I hope so. I hadn’t heard much about the under 5 age group. I’ll feel so much better about being out and about and having my kids visit people when my kids can get vaccinated.

    Same thing is close to happening in Alberta

    If anyone isn’t busy on Monday and wants to make some decent money, call your local elections office ASAP. I had training last night and our electoral district is short people and I doubt we're unique. They need people to help with counting (no training required, you basically are there when...

    When and how should we open schools?

    In my province it’s 12 and up. Lots of kids younger wear them though, my kids wanted to once we were wearing them a lot.

    #Canada150 (Canadian politics and related issues)

    Our local PPC candidate said in a candidate's forum that gender based violence didn't exist. Then said that he's a fisherman and he knows cabin fever and that lockdowns lead to boredom that results in "slapping women around" :scream: The PPC has been very aggressive around here. They were...

    It sounds like I’ll be offered a third booster soon. I still don’t really feel like I should be on the “clinically extremely vulnerable” list at all so we’ll see what I do. I might call my doctor first.

    My sister in law’s dad came to visit last weekend. With a “cold”. Found out today he tested positive for ********* :rolleyes: Apparently test results in Northern Alberta are taking awhile. My brother’s family has had zero symptoms thankfully, even in the unvaccinated kids but so dumb that he even...

    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I just finished devouring Beautiful Country by Qian Julie Wang. I impulsively preordered it after seeing a recommendation on Twitter and I’m so glad I did. It’s the memoir of an undocumented Chinese immigrant girl in NYC and is such a compelling story. I should probably stop neglecting my...

    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    We watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tonight. It was interesting because my husband had no clue who Charles Manson was and did not know anything about the real story. His experience was much different than mine watching it. It’s long, too long if you’re waiting for the expected payoff...

    C*vid is ripping through the unvaccinated people in the church circles that my brother and dad are involved with. Not a single person fully vaccinated has had symptoms so far. Unfortunately, one of those people is the sister of a friend, who has multiple disabilities and is very medically...

    I was able to get mine. I’m a little confused because when I saved it to my phone it’s a printable PDF, not like a digital thing but it has a QR code so I’m sure it’ll work 🤷‍♀️ I might see if I did something wrong in a few days when there’s less demand. I had to refresh the page a couple of times.
