I feel like I am an epicenter of a covid outbreak.  I have three kids, one can't go to school because a kid in their class got it and he just got his first shot last Friday because of his age, and one other can go to school because he is fully vaccinated, but I have to get him tested because he played hockey against a kid who had it.  It seems the place I live in has a Jiujitsu dojo running at full capacity where the instructor is not fully vaccinated...although that is just the rumour floating around the parents that are in the same boat as me.

All in all, though, I have to say that the covid warning system and the list of things that we had to do and what the rules were, was confusing at best and contradictory at worst.  I think I have received 5 emails from different parties for each of the kids affected, so like 10 emails total on what I have to do.

Hard to be amused by a tragedy but the parents of that entirely avoidable school shooting tried to sneak into Canada and got turned away at the border for not being vaccinated.

Americans really don’t get that we’re a much more left wing country than they are. They’re always threatening to move here over stuff the democrats want - and typically, it’s stuff we’ve already done.
To be fair, they also said the same thing when Trump was elected.

Yup, much wiser to head south.

True, but at least then, it wasn't to escape "liberal" policies they found intolerable that we'd already enacted or leaned as left or further than the Democrats.

I know, they're just so out of touch with reality down there.

Dang that sucks. The lack of clarity from government and policy means everyone from businesses to the fellow parents of your kids' school friends are all making it up as they go. Like they've only just barely started officially recognizing that Covid is an airborne virus, not droplet/contact transmission. All the plexiglass and hygiene theatre was just to push responsibility down on to individuals, rather than actually implementing the necessary policy and infrastructural changes to combat this.

It feels like everyone sat down and said "Okay we need to do something if someone has covid" and they all agreed, but they didn't plan out what that something was, so they all start scrambling.  I don't want to put the blame on public health, because I think that they have been the most consistent, but it's the people between me and public health who are unsure of what they need to send out.  It feels like they are afraid they aren't doing enough, so they just email blast every couple of hours information in an effort to look like they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.

I got upgraded to 5G+ today so now I can communicate directly with the fridge.

Got my third/booster does at a walk in centre cos it was open beside the football ground I was attending a match at so just wandered in.

Got Pfizer this time to go with my two initial AZ doses.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

See now I am in a dilly of a pickle.  I'm pro vaccine but anti booster.  I fear that there is no place in society for me.

That's kind of bizarre.

Any particular concerns about the booster.  I'm happy to chat about it.

No, sorry.  I don't actually have a problem with the booster.  I was just thinking about it and I was think about the situation I posted and I was wondering if we would see a group emerge where they actually had a problem with the booster but they were fully vaccinated.  I'm with Bender that it would be bizarre so I posted that to be a little tongue in cheek.

I mean I don't think we'll see a group like that.  I doubt there are people out there that are like " Woah, woah woah...three needles is one needle  too much for me", however if you were to describe the last two years, I think Ozzy Osbourne said it best when he said "Crazy, but that's how it goes...."

Thanks for the offer to chat though....
