I say shame on the Northern Territory because they have been the most reluctant area of Australia to vaccinate at all and that number is by far the most insufficient I have ever seen from them. Shame indeed.

It's Tuesday and I've had more than sufficient rest so today's the day I expect to get back to the regularly scheduled nonsense. Editing, building, worldbuilding and so on. At a relaxed pace.

The evidence is increasing that Beloved and I shared an episode of "mild" covid that has resulted in shortness of breath, fatigue, and general inability to can. Fun.

For me, it's like an extended period in Sneezin' and Wheezin' Season, with extra Bronchial Croup on the side. You can hear a growl when I cough, sneeze, or laugh and nothing is shifting. If my OPEP device is going to help, it should also help with that. It may even help Beloved.

BUT the little bugger is still in transit. Fingers crossed it arriveth soon and aid in easing our woes.
