Going in for my second covid shot tomorrow - it's the Monavoni... Moldova... Machu-Picchu... something like that... one. Folks I know have gotten a little sick off the second shot, sounds less than fun. I have two friends going for their 4th Dan Black in Taekwondo on Saturday, hopefully I'll be right as rain by then and will be able to watch their test.

Many ppl are feeling the effects of the vaccine. Is why there is a high rate of ppl not going back to receive the second dose. If u received the first dose w no adverse side effects,,,u should b ok w the second. Yet,,,everyone responds differently.

My own experience was that the first vaccine injection caused no side effects, but I'm told that this should not be thought of as an indicator of how the second one goes. I'll let you know soon as I have my second one on the 16th of May.

I had my 2nd jab last week. I had no side effects with either and I have a compromised immune system. Maybe it's finally an advantage! ;)

Anyway, hope all goes as well as possible for you. 👍

Hubby had Pfizer. fine with the first. The second jab which was a month later he had flu-like symptoms the following day, but then was fine.

I have my second jab in three weeks so I will not be making plans the day after. We will see.

I go the 19th to the eye surgeon, have cataracts. Also have a splitting headache I've had for at least a month. My PCP gave me pain meds but that was not a solution. When I told him about the cataracts he said probably eye strain. Amazingly, I still managed to write over 35 poems during that period (most likely because my temples weren't throbbing at the time). Probably have surgery sometimes this summer. Hope everyone here is doing okay. Getting old is the pits.

It is the pits but you're going to be great! Everyone I know who's had the surgery said it's all so much better afterwards.

Figured out the percentage of books incorrectly shelved based in the number of linear feet I found over the course of the day. (All books received within the last 3 days and shelved over the last 24 hours. (I was off yesterday and these titles were not there Wednesday.) A total of 16 linear feet on the cart.)

All told it was 13.6% all in my genres. I hate it when careless people get their hands into my sections. Needless to say, I pulled the problem titles, reshelved them and am keeping a running tally to average over the next month.

Downside of my touchpoint memory brain is that I find these errors without consciously looking for them. I find it, know its wrong and have to fix it. I cannot leave it wrong. And if I didn't point it out most people would never know, but percentages this bad need to be addressed.

Can I be anymore of a brain freak? This is why animals make sense and people don't. Even Rue Dog knows how to put his toys away correctly. Seriously dude...FB_IMG_1620432391483.jpg

I slept really badly last night - and was congested and achy for most of the day. Hoping that tomorrow will be better.

Speaking of tomorrow - I may not get much writing/editing done because two of my friends are going for their fourth dan blackbelt and I'll be watching their test and supporting them.

I am like a dog with a bone. If I don't understand, or something doesn't make logical sense. I will ask the same question at least twenty different ways until the brain puzzle is resolved.
