  1. I had tickets to three Wilco shows in the Bay Area for last March. They were all "postponed", not cancelled, so technically I still have tickets for those. Unfortunately, I have no idea when they're going to happen!
  2. One of the things I miss most is public transportation. My favorite Sunday morning activity was to walk to the ferry building, maybe go to the big library downtown on the way, eat breakfast down there, and then take the streetcar home. I haven't done that in a year, partly because a lot of the pieces of that trip wouldn't feel safe, but also because the walk home is all uphill! I'll be very happy to be able to explore my city again.
  3. Just got my first dose of Pfizer at Walgreens. The color-coordination with the flip-flops was a lucky coincidence! Shirt by TwistedAcres. 😷
  4. Sorry, that was thoughtlessly phrased on my part. I was referring more to an adjustment in the ways we listen to music, take pleasure in reading, etc. I realize that many people are struggling with much more fundamental issues, and I'm very sorry about your current circumstances.
  5. Reading was always my greatest joy in life, and I've had a very hard time reading anything at all for the past year. I'm considering this just a year out of time, we'll all adjust (or not) eventually, and learn how to live in the new normal.
  6. Yay! I love this thread already. I'm not expecting to get my jab for a few months, probably, but my mom and all my aunts and uncles have gotten theirs, so I'm thrilled about that. I wish they'd bump the teachers up the list out here (I'm not a teacher, but I know how much of a bummer it's been for the kids doing remote learning).
  7. My mom was very much looking forward to watching it, but... she'll be getting her vaccine instead! We'll take that trade-off. I've already got everything set to record on her DVR, we'll watch together tomorrow night.
  8. It happened a few times on the old board. Yes! Arguments in favor of this: https://slate.com/human-interest/2014/12/move-christmas-to-february-lets-postpone-jesus-birthday.html I would put it somewhere it wouldn't clash with the Super Bowl. Not that I particularly care about the Super Bowl, but I know it'd be a thing that would become an issue...
  9. I love when it starts snowing on VC. As a native Californian, I've always loved the *idea* of a white christmas.
  10. I had a dream about you this weekend, Mr. Beltmann (and it wasn't creepy!). We were having a big barbecue in our backyard, and you were there. It made me nostalgic for seeing people in general, and for seeing Wilco friends in particular. I've heard of words that describe homesickness for a place you've never been, or nostalgia for a time you've never known, but I don't know if there's a particular word for missing friends you've never met.
  11. Put me down for the "really want to meet you in person someday!" list.
  12. At least one republican senator (Mike Lee from Utah) has tested positive. He and the president of Notre Dame, who has also tested positive, were both at her nomination ceremony. I wouldn't be surprised if we hear of a few more cases from that event.
  13. It could possibly solve one (or more than one) of many problems: gets him out of future debates allows for a complete reset of his campaign (likely counting on Biden to take the gentleman's stance on this one, and "pause" his campaign while Trump is out of commission) allows him to pop up in two weeks and say "see, no worse than the flu!"; or, "hydroxychloroquine works!" allows him to bow out of the race entirely, which would give the entire republican party cover to say that they would have won, if only Trump had been healthy Also, none of these even require him to know about this plan! The republican party could have orchestrated this whole thing, either giving him the virus or just telling him he's got it! (I saw a tweet last night addressing all of these conspiracy theories and then landing on "Occam's razor: he's dumb and he caught it". Yep, that is highly likely.)
