Corona Diary: Day 363!

I am sure about the days we’ve spent in so-called lockdown now: After initial doubts and uneasiness I’ve found a clever website which does the seemingly simple job of counting for me. Look, here’s the fukn proof!

And indeed, Saturday, 27 March 2021 is the 365th day. We didn’t win any additional days, neither did we lose any, so hubs and me can celebrate the anniversary in a festive manner. Hmmm, sushi maybe? And a movie? We gotz “The Snyder Cut”, if you know what I mean. A little over 4 hours of cartoonish adventures of cartoonish characters … and neither of us feels like watching it. :/

But don’t fret, people. Orcsi, as you very well know, is your stuntgirl and goes where nobody else dares to tread. You’ll get my review … soonish. Just gotta find a quiet day and 4 hours of uninterrupted time to fully submerge myself into the DCU’s shenanigans. Not particularly looking forward to the experience but for you, sweet children, Imma gonna do it!

So, what else happens 2 days before our locky downy anniversary?

Let’s see from top left to bottom right:

  • Uncommonly reasonable call for earlier curfew during Easter holidays. This would be a generally good idea, with or without the Covid-19 threat. Billions of drunk drivers, and a pathetically small – but equally drunk – police force make for some of the most brutal death crashes of the year. Add to that the superspreader events and Bob’s your funeral director.
  • Didn’t I just say that? Cabinet worries about religious superspreader events. Why can’t people pray to the easter bunny in the comfort of their own homes?
  • Our health minister, a real doctor btw, Zweli Mkizhe, is also for a tighter lockdown during the Ester holidays. See, you can have it all: Be a corrupt politician and still have a sensitive opinion. 🙂
  • Aaaawe. 😦 Prof Karim was the – much needed – voice of reason. Dunno why he stepped down, maybe bullied out?
  • Yes, yes, TB takes a back seat. What can I say? Covid-19 is simply the more sexy and fashionable disease, sorry.
  • Gvt advisors call for tighter lockdown restrictions? No, really? How you gonna react, gvt?
  • Brace yourself, 3rd wave is a-coming!
  • And uncaring assholios should be dismissed? What a daring concept! WOW! 😮

Business as usual. Humans are sometimes singularly brilliant, as the dominant mammal species we’re stupid as toast. And that would be an insult for bread. I said it since almost a year now, and I’m gonna say it again: With the correct, consequent and swift lockdown measures we could’ve been out of this mess since at least half a year by now. Look at China! Asian discipline, social thinking, individual responsibility … and they were Covid-free after 2 or 3 months. Why can’t we do the … ugh forget it. No beach party for us. 😦

Party! Exclusively for Chinese

Let’s admit it, we fukked it up … or let other people fuk it up on our behalf. We let assholes, too stupid to tie their own shoelaces, try their luck on procuring vaccines and organise their rollout, we caved in to industry demands and opened up the economy much too early, we allowed intl traffic, we sent our kidz to school, we truly don’t deserve our own pool party. 😦

Sad but true …

You guys be good to each other … and yourself, ok?

  1. Schools in Long Beach are opening Mon. Just as cases are rising again. I realize politicians are under pressure to “restart” the economy but stupid to do so after the first, vague, sign of covid decline then acting surprised when it increases again.

    • “acting surprised”
      That’s right, they are acting. Can’t be really surprised … but this close to Hollywood everybody’s a believable actor I guess. So that’s what they do: They get up in the morning, take on the politician costume and makeup and act their little cynical hearts out.

      That’s why I always say Don’t fukn Vote! Don’t give ’em the time of the day, don’t listen to a word they’re muttering. They themselves don’t either. It’s all an act, makebelief politics, or as Sammie uses to say: Bollocktics!

      Don’t listen to them. Don’t vote. Survive!

        • No! There is no MUST VOTE! Who’s forcing you? Don’t get me wrong, as an old social democrat I’ve always been pro-vote and considered it one of the very few civic duties we have as citizens of democratic countries.But lately I can’t recommend the vote with a clear conscience anymore. I don’t know if you noticed but there was a paradigm shift in politics and societies happening in the last 30 years or so. Today not even the politicians believe in democracy anymore and are trying to scoop up as many votes and personal riches as possible. Politics? What politics? They stand for nothing, they are only on one side: their own.

          We must not support such behaviour by rewarding the assclowns by giving them our votes!

          And please define “worse” for me. We all thought orange man was bad … but look at the ticken time bomb you got now. Fuking up relations with the two largest players on the field of global economics and politics inside of just a couple days. Bringing them even closer together. Trying to bully Iran into submission? Trying to support an unsupportable Isreal …

          Congratz idiot!
