    The Vermont eye doctor is not accepting new patients. I am now thinking maybe Rhode Island or Maine. Will see.

    I've had those moods. Hopefully the sunshine will help, otherwise, I used to just sleep a bit more.

    Went to the grocery store yesterday. I'd forgotten that it was the first day of normal for California. About 2/3 of the people were still wearing masks (including me). Noticed a few minor changes around the store. For instance the bulk, store-cooked bagels were individually wrapped throughout the pandemic. Yesterday they were unwrapped with a tray of paper bags nearby like they were 15 months ago. That 'protection' had always seemed rather silly since throughout the pandemic I could still walk across the store to the produce section and pick up individual apples or other produce. At least the bagels have a sneeze guard.

    Not to be argumentative or anything, but I'm thinking most produce can be/does get washed once people get it home. I don't know that I would want to eat a bagel I had to wash first. lol.

    On the other hand, I have no problems with buying a bagel in a bagel shop or some place that has them in containers together as long as it is only the employees who have access to bag it up for me (every place I have been even pre-covid, the employees wore gloves) - instead of the potential of every shopper in the store being able to touch and choose as many bagels as they want before finding their perfect one for purchase.

    In theory people are using the little tissue slips to pick up the bagels and not actually touching any of them. Whether they do or not, who knows.

    I wonder which kills more germs. Rinsing/rubbing an apple in water for ten seconds or heating a bagel in a toaster. Either way, with case counts here in the low single digits for a county of 250,000 people Iím not concerned about getting covid from either.

    If you were going to get covid from bagels, getting take out, much less door dash etc. delivery from who knows who, would be a problem and people shouldn't have gotten take out and delivery during covid. But formites turned out to be a real non-issue. There is what actually spread covid (breathing) and what never much did, although at the very beginning we did not know, so I washed stuff from the grocery back then too.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Went into the city today to go to the recently fully reopened library. Still a lot of masks being worn. And still required at the library which makes sense given the very diverse type of patrons they have.

    very diverse being code for homeless But yea it really does make sense there.

    most places I am going are not particularly diverse (in terms of class anyway), they aren't particularly disadvantaged, and I'm not wearing a mask now vaccinated. But where have I even been? the gym, the store, restaurants, kinda, that's about it.

    Got my J&J today, via Uber.
    I think I was prudent choosing that one, due to the logistics of it all.
    After sporting 2 snug fitting masks, five layers, plus a filter, I'm solidly on team yppej.

    I'll see about a booster later.

    I also got 10% off 2 pounds of char siu BBQ pork, which will end up in Singapore noodles some time in the future.
