Pharmacist recommended the half dose of Moderna yesterday to see me through until the Omicron-specific one. Woke up with the familiar old hit-by-a-truck feels and a punch in the arm, took some codeine and nothing planned for today except lounging on the patio. I told him I call it 'the magic juice of science' and he thought that was hilarious, and thanked me for making him laugh, because lord knows we have to grab the laughs whenever we can in the middle of this shit show.
In other news I go back to work after a year off (because hey I love money...) starting a new job on Monday at my alma mater, HEPA units galore in a large office shared with one other person, and I'm getting my own desktop model for my space. Pretty much everyone masking when going from A to B and meeting in offices, would not be surprised if they bring back the mandate when the big O gets ripping in September. I plan on keeping the N95s handy and just keeping my head down and my powder dry.
