Wow... my heart goes out to you and your family.  Hoping he pulls through.

Thanks.  He's been mine and my parents' doctor for almost 15 years.  He is the most empathetic and caring doctor I've ever known. 

Apparently he got sick working in ER.   :'(

That sucks.  When it happens to friends, it hits close to home.  Hope he turns out ok.

My spouse doesn’t want me to buy a gong.   I disagree with her.

Oh, when you said "gong" I reached for my pipe. ;D

So Lindsey and I were talking more about the marriage thing.  She seems to think it's a really good idea.  Earlier she was scared that if there was a major COVID lockdown, she'd still be able to take care of me if we were married.  She's still talking in practical terms... if something happened of me and she needed to write cheques for me or something like that, for example. That was one of the things she was talking about.

Then she was talking about stiff like whether we'd have a big wedding or just go to City Hall, or whatever.  She already had the big church wedding so she doesn't need to do that again. I have never had that, but since it would be mostly for my parents and since I'm barely on speaking terms with my parents, there's no need to worry about it. So we wouldn't need to do a big thing. Or we could go to Vegas and get married by an Elvis impersonator, or get married on a beach in Hawaii or whatever.

Anyway. I still feel weird about it.

I think a US wedding is out of the picture for the foreseeable future.

Honestly I'm not in a rush for any sort of wedding...

So since October she is my direct boss.  This means the 1-in-a-billion chance office romance is now likely off the board as she knows how old I am now...  But we are helping each other still, so growing closer as ... friends ?  She definitely admires me in a way that surprises me, so mutual admiration is a good foundation. 

But we are really different, so our relationship (now I'm being serious, so I mean work relationship) seems odd to me.

I am fascinated with her life journey...

How is everyone doing?  Better I hope.

As much as I hate the term, I am now pretty used to 'the new normal'.  I'm finally getting stuff done instead of reading the news incessantly for death counts and finding unhealthy means of escape. 

I'm not sending my kids to daycare/school and still working from home.  In some ways, I'm starting to forget the pre-pandemic days and find it weird when I see people in movies touching each other other or going to out to bars/restaurants.

I still don't know when/if my GP will come back but at least the anxiety is gone. 

Looking forward to Bill Gates putting his microchip in me.

Thanks for asking. 

I am doing ok, but like the convict I am getting used to my jail :(  I also find it weird to see people in restaurants in entertainment, more so when I see shots of the US.

Getting by...

Things that have helped:

I'm cooking more
Rediscovered edibles
Online board games with friends via Tabletop Simulator Online™
Walks every single morning
Air conditioning (lately)

Work at home has picked up, so things are easier as there's more to occupy my time.  Also weather is nicer so i go for walks and starting to jog.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

Saw a streetcar at 9 am on Saturday, near the end of the line that looked normal for a Saturday.... maybe 20 people aboard.
