  1. My mother is about to get her 3rd booster, 5th shot. The bivalent just became available recently, and although they recommend waiting six months after your most recent dose, she is very immunocompromised, so she only has to wait 3 (it's been 4 months since her last one, though).

  3. I knew the thread existed and I read it even though the chances of my going there are slim to none. I actually read all or almost all reviews, but rarely comment on them since I will never or probably never get to go to those places.

    Not sure anyone has been there (except maybe Orik), but my friend let me know that Patrice Patisser has closed.
  5. In my province, you have to be 18 to buy a lottery ticket. Yesterday, I asked the 7-11 clerk for a lottery ticket and she asked to see my ID. 😁 I was wearing a mask, but at least my eyes must look young!
  6. I always preface the poke with, "I have narrow and deep veins. If you need to use the back of my hand, go ahead."
  7. David Kinch just posted on Instagram that he is leaving Manresa at the end of this year. I'm sad I'll never get to try his food there, although maybe he'll have another restaurant I can try? I assume reservations will be even harder to get more.
  8. My friend got a numb face after her first vaccination. That was about 18 months ago and it's still numb. She was told not to get any further covid vaccinations. My parent's friend ended up in hospital in a coma after the first one. After that, she was one of the very few in my province with a legitimate medical exemption. I've had 4 (2 plus 2 boosters) and I didn't even get a day off work. Sightly sore arm but the tetanus shot I had last year hurt more
  9. Doesn't work for everyone, but writing down anxious thoughts and saying "I'll deal with it tomorrow" can help. DBT is also pretty useful for learning tools to deal with anxiety.
  10. Masks are recommended but optional everywhere in my province. Private businesses can make their own rules, and a small percentage are still requiring masks from either customers, employees, or both. At restaurants I noticed servers mostly still wear masks. But I've been to a couple large-ish (200+ people) events where very few attendees wore masks despite being seated fairly close together. I'm going to Cirque du Soleil this weekend. I predict I'll see about a dozen people wearing masks out of a crowd of 1000+. I find it weird that I often see children <5 wearing masks, but their
  11. No COVID has entered my household. But we are very very careful still. We wear masks whenever in public places, and limit our close social contacts to people who we know are vaccinated. We are not hermits and still go out to shows, the gym, restaurants, etc, but still practise all the measures we did before. This is all under the direction of my parent's oncologist, although we probably would be doing so even without cancer and a compromised immune system being involved. Generally, I would guess only about 10% of the people in my city are doing the same. But that's still more than w
  12. Without food coloring or cocoa powder Eta oops! Didn't realize there was another page and Voyager said it first!
  13. Awww! Poor kitty! I've never understood why cats prefer to throw up on soft things. Are they afraid hard surfaces will hurt the vomit? I still remember the time my cat threw up in her cone of shame. Literally up. The cone freaked her out, and when she started to gag, she lifted her head up and the vomit went up out of mouth and down into the cone. I didn't make her wear it after that.
  14. Kinda like cheong. Years and years ago, maybe 30-ish, I was watching a cooking show where they had pineapple rind, sugar, and water and they let it ferment for a few days. Then used to add a beverage (I can't remember if it was used as a mix or imbibed straight). I think it was Delia Smith.
