Thursday, Day Zero, hey look I made it

Two new cases keeping the total case count up to eleven. All overseas visitors and captured in quarantine. But now we also have the virulent UK and South African strains to concern ourselves with. Huzzah. We already have enough people acting like Karens all over the place. Queensland's borders are definitely shut until NSW and Victoria get their fecal matter organised for once and for all.

If we all did what New Zealand did, this entire mess would have been over by mid-April and we wouldn't have UK and South African strains.

A peek at the headlines:

  • New Years causes cluster fears in Sydney
  • Muppet has a new plan to overturn the election - get Congress to do his dirty work
  • Dawn Wells, best known as Ginger from Gilligan's Island, perishes from the plague
  • Ivanka Trump now tragically aware that nobody likes her
  • NSW Premier under fire for not doing what Queensland did
  • Outbreaks in Sydney continue
  • Domestic violence peaks at New Years'
  • Plague has caused uptick of Doomsday Preppers
  • US nurse catches the plague after first dose of vaccine. This is not alarming because:
    1. the vaccine is not effective until after the SECOND dose
    2. nurses in the USA are exposed to Covid pretty much constantly
  • Plague kills Repugnican representative just days before he takes office
  • New Years' is about to be soaked

We're staying home and if I'm awake at midnight, I shall sing Auld Lang Syne for the neighbourhood.

Let's get on with the story.
