As was posted in the last thread, it’s also true that the right-wing memes and bulkshit are an easier story to sell to anyone who desperately wants to blame “others” for their problems than reality. Junk food vs. vegetables.

Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald

Educators in Nebraska and elsewhere are struggling against burnout, fear and exhaustion at a time when schools can ill afford to lose any staff.

“They’re exhausted, and they feel abandoned,” said Tim Royers, president of the Millard Education Association.

Teachers said they feel overwhelmed and overworked, especially where they have been asked to simultaneously teach both students learning remotely and those sitting in their classrooms.

Teaching both is like doing “two jobs for the price of one,” one teacher said.

While school leaders praise teachers for their efforts, the teacher said it’s like “high-fiving us while we’re drowning.”

Teachers who spoke to The World-Herald about their experiences in the classroom said they feared retribution if their names were published (my emphasis).

Not 100% but sure seems to be riffing on…

Canoeing a joint is when a joint burns on one side but not the other (or, more accurately, it burns more on one side than the other). This uneven burn causes the joint to look like a canoe because it’s open on one side (hence the name). It’s a giant waste of weed and money.

My son, with Diabetes. Took a test. Results not back yet. He wants to come live with me because his mother doesn’t want him to do his part time job at a pet store. He works mostly with the animals. Don’t mind if he stays with me, but not sure about the working. NYC is seeing an uptick in cases. (Some of this is back to school and hasidic jews refusing to acknowledge reality).

One one hand there is at least a 10% chance that if he gets covid he dies. The isolation is killing him.

Mask usage in the city is 95% and no one goes into any store without one.

I don’t know what to do anymore.

You have to balance risks. That said, we’re not going anywhere. Nor for Christmas, sadly.

My immediate family has all been isolating. My parents and one sister are joining pods for Thanksgiving. My other sister is going to see my grandparents. So is one of my cousins. I know she’s been good; I’m less sure of my cousin, but I’m not going to tell her to skip it because my grandfather has a cancer diagnosis as is and is pretty much declining treatment beyond the palliative and she’s much less likely to be the source compared to my cousin who goes to college and lives with a bunch of other 19 year old boys.

It’s shit and it sucks and it’s fucking killing me to acknowledge that the chances of seeing my grandfather alive in person again are dwindling every day. But I would still not fly to see him right now because of that risk. (And believe me if I could bar my cousin from showing up I would. Do not get me started on Christmas.)

From the guy at my job: “The popular vote doesn’t count.” In the constitutional sense, he’s correct. But the way he said it was more of a “I don’t give a shit about the majority.”

I can only guess what he’d say if Trump won the popular vote and lost the EC?

Borden and other experts urged people to be mindful of the data’s limitations.

For instance, the Georgia Tech map doesn’t tell you your risk of actually contracting the virus at an event, Borden said.

“That’s because your risk depends on a whole bunch of other factors, like is it outdoors or indoors? Are people wearing masks? Is there distancing? What’s the ventilation? Are people touching objects?” he said. “There are all these other factors that we have to really pay close attention to in order to reduce our risk of getting covid-19.”

Brian Garibaldi, medical director of the Biocontainment Unit at Johns Hopkins, said that the map also isn’t able to adjust for people’s unique behaviors, which may affect the risk of potential virus transmission.

While coronavirus mapping tools may be a “good red-flag indicator” for individuals, Garibaldi said, they may be more useful to policymakers trying to determine community health guidelines, such as limiting the size of gatherings.

I’ll confess that we have Thanksgiving plans-9 people, local, family (members of our “pod.”) Mostly outdoors. Masks indoors at all times, outdoors except when eating. Bad weather or anyone in the hosting household cancels the whole thing.

I don’t suppose we’ll get together in person for Christmas which is sad, but the prudent thing to do.

The issue with the “pod” idea is it assumes two things:

a) People in the so-called pod are all following the rules and wouldn’t lie about doing something they shouldn’t
b) They still have to go out; they may be exposed and not know it, and before they become symptomatic can spread it to the rest of the pod.

Yeah, I know. My daughter is probably the biggest risk, but she has been extremely careful-always wearing an N95 at work and so forth. These are close family members and I trust them. They would not lie about where they’ve been. While there is always a possibility of infection, the same is true for going to the grocery store.
We will be outside most of the time and masked.

Same here, and I still have 1/2 a tank left. Thanksgiving is the one time of year I get to see my family, but there’s no fucking way I’d go to Boston and endanger them, me and everyone around us.

And I’m old, and my siblings are older, so every year could be the last year we’ll be together (my parents have been gone for more than 30 years, so we’re the “older generation.”)

I’m so sick of listening to the whiners and complainers about how bored and put upon they are, I could puke. I know it’s probably not healthy to hate these people as much as I do, but I fucking hate them with every fiber of my being.

Five miles, a weight-lifting workout, writing 1660 words because NaNo, and braised short ribs with mushrooms over udon noodles for dinner. I made it back in September and it was fabulous but more work than I want to do on a typical weekday, so a perfect special occasion dinner that does not require a turkey.

I haven’t seen my 90+ year old father for nearly a year now. He lives in ND in a long-term care facility. I’m also not going home to see him and my sister and other family this holiday season. My sister understands.

I’m hoping my dad hangs on for a bit more till it’s safe to visit. There’s been a few waves where he’s staying. At one time there was about an eighth of the residents positive for Covid and quite a few deaths. Right now there are only two positive asymptomatic residents. Staff doing a pretty good job but I can’t imagine the stress.

Had a long talk with my sister who lives in the same area as my dad. She hasn’t ventured out much and does where a mask when she does - which she said is finally becoming more common.

She listed all the weddings of first cousin’s children that she did not attend this summer - then she listed all my cousins and spouses and girlfriends and cousins once removed that have since tested positive. Must have been more than a dozen. Luckily all have recovered as far as I know. Not sure if any learned.

I work Thursdays every week. I’ll work that Thursday too, sitting behind our sneeze guards with my mask to put on when the occasional person comes by. I’ll read Mark Sandlin’s “A Prayer of Giving Thanks” as I do every year, perhaps a bit more heavy hearted than usual. And towards the end of the evening I’ll pop a frozen dinner in the nuker too with a nice cup of tea.

Perhaps I’ll take it off next year.

I’ve bought gas five times since March. My mother lives 6.5 miles away and I’ve been going back and forth there fairly frequently. And it’s only increased. Due to a recent deterioration in her mental health, I’ve been over there three times in the last week to keep an eye on her while my brother does things like go to the grocery store or go to the Taco Bell drive up so he can get some of those drunk tacos for mom.

They’re thicker and a little chewier - small difference in flavor but I’d be hard-pressed to describe it. That said, you could absolutely do this dish on something like fettucine and it would be equally fantastic.

(The udon I got for it the first time was from not-an-Asian grocery store and was more like …weird ramen noodles and it was still just fine.)
