My nephew, who is only forty one, not a key worker, nor clinically vulnerable, was vaccinated weeks ago. I don't know what he did to cheat his way to the front of the queue, but I've heard there are plenty of others that have done the same: there must be loopholes for those inclined to use them.

I got my second Pfizer shot this morning (from Mabel's nephew!)

I don't feel sick, at least yet, but I am really dopey and lightheaded.

Lots of people I know my age or younger have gotten one or more shot. Mostly, they have exerted the effort to find clinics or sites who have "waste management" appointments. I'll just wait until Thursday and book an appointment.

I'd like to get it ASAP, but I don't really mind waiting.

The powers that be are meeting today to discuss coming back to the office en masse. We have a problem in that we don't have enough offices with doors for everyone to work at the same time, so they have to figure that out. Good luck with that. I'm not sharing my office. :pout:

Even though I'm planning on coming back to working full time, 40 hours a week, I'm feeling a little anxious about the idea. I really miss the company and setting of working in an office, but I've have a routine of sorts working from home. I like being able to roll out of bed, through some clothes on, and sit in front of the computer. Getting to the office is going to take some more planning.

Planning to go to the office today. I'm meeting a colleague that's moving to a new group and want to say hello/goodbye in person. Last time I saw my office (over video chat), it was in kind of a shitty state, so I may need to do some cleanup before I can actually work.

I took a leftover antibody test from a COVID surveillance study, and I've got detectable IgG :larrythrust:

We're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Mabel got her second shot yesterday, and I brought her over a batch of sopa de lima to help get her through any potential side effects from that.

So we sat on her porch and talked about what we're going to do once we're as protected as we can be.

We're going to go get brunch at this local place that has outdoor seating. We're going to thrift stores and a restaurant supply place and maybe some estate sales or something. And we're going to go to that Cambodian-Laotian restaurant that's like a Narnia behind the doors of some dingy little takeout wing place. Maybe the run-down amusement park, and the drive in. And definitely the flea market.

We're also looking at real estate sites again, thinking about where we'll all retire to after we sell our houses.

We had some long-time friends over for lunch yesterday. We've all been vaccinated, but it was nice out (mid-80s), and we ate in the backyard. I grilled shrimp, Mrs. S stirfried veggies and steamed spaghetti squash. We drank Prosecco, and had raspberries and cucumbers for dessert. We agreed that, next time Mrs. S and I go to pick up our wine club installment in Temecula, they'd come up with us to do a tasting.

I got my shot because someone turned down theirs out of fear and they thought of me next. That is the only reason.

I finally got the first vaccination yesterday. I got it at about 11am and felt mostly fine all day. Just a little light headed in the evening.

Last night I woke up about 1am shivering cold and took some paracetamol, put on my robe and got a hot water bottle. I was freezing cold for about 30 mins, but eventually fell asleep. Then I woke up about 3am boiling hot and sweating bullets. So I stripped everything off and eventually fell asleep again.

Now it's 6:30 and I feel fine. Each time I fell asleep I got really good sleep, like where you wake up and you're sure it must be like 5am but it's only 1am.

Half way to licking doorknobs again! :hyperb:
