  2. Tomorrow is Black Friday. That is all.
  3. They did; if they didn't have a receipt, the person would've only gotten store credit. Still, though. Come into the 1950s and get yourself a card!!!
  4. Starting to think that not jumping the gun might not be the worst thing. https://www.wired.com/story/the-astrazeneca-covid-vaccine-data-isnt-up-to-snuff/ Christ alive, there's no end in sight, is there? 😐
  5. Had a customer today return $961 worth of merchandise... in cash. I wonder if it's deeply brave or deeply stupid to walk around with that much money on your person.
  6. There is a bridge in Bratislava named for Italian engineer Enea Grazioso Lanfranconi. Only, 35 years ago someone made a typo and spelled it Lafranconi. There is now a neighbourhood, tram stop, and student residence in the area all named Lafranconi. It has become a well used title to refer to the neighbourhood. The stop, but not the neighbourhood or student residence or bridge, is being renamed, after 35 years, to Lanfranconi. Two stops in the centre, of many, have just been renamed to "Centrum" (Slovak for centre), as though they were the only stops in the city centre. "Bory Mall" (self explanatory) is now OC Bory (OC = shopping centre), despite the mall not changing its name. 61 stops are having their names changed in total. Transit must be too good in Bratislava if they have time to deal with stuff like this Wonder who's getting paid for this garbage.
  7. Things I don't enjoy very much: working 5 days straight, then having one day off, then working 5 days in a row, then having one day off, then another 4 days in a row. Had to prepare a shipment today of insulation by hand that took all my shift to do. Couldn't figure out how to band it correctly together so I had to ask, each time, for another employee to help. Only the store was rammed with customers, which meant getting anything done took way longer than it should have. I'm very much hoping the experts who are predicting the return of normal life next year amidst the vaccine are right, because I need to find myself somewhere far away, camera in hand, answerable to no one but myself, like I need food and drink.
  8. To be fair, I highly doubt that the same people who were pushing to keep the border closed are the ones who are travelling south now for the winter. As far as I can tell, the amount of people who were in hysterics back in March is very similar the number of people in hysterics now. Sure, you'll get the odd person who has tailored their opinion to reflect the updated level of risk that we face, but as far as the overwhelming majority of people is concerned, things are exactly as fucked now as they are in March. I share your offence as a fellow essential services employee, however. It is ridiculous that I've been breaking my back every day during all of this lunacy, dealing with the chronically entitled and out of touch, and the thanks that I get for that is all the armchair virologists on the internet want to take away even going for long walks far away from home from me 😭 Of course, the option to travel was never on the table for me. Next year.
  9. It's coming: Health experts push for ‘aggressive’ strategy called #COVIDZero to stamp out coronavirus Haven't managed to make the flu go away after thousands of years, but yeah, this seems totally doable
  10. While I agree that our lack of preparation for this eventuality is startling, when I look at what's been happening in Victoria and, distressingly, the bulk of European nations, I have a feeling that if the worst thing that happens to us is a return to pre-stage 1 restrictions from the spring, we will find ourselves astronomically fortunate. https://www.euronews.com/2020/11/03/covid-19-greece-and-austria-among-european-countries-to-impose-further-measures https://www.france24.com/en/france/20201030-french-hunker-down-for-second-covid-19-lockdown-this-is-what-s-new
  11. Last night I went for a walk around the University of Toronto's St. George campus downtown. Probably the most compelling place in the city.

  12. Even though the Toronto Christmas Market has been cancelled, they are still going to have a winter village with Christmas lights and a tree. Couldn't be more excited, I'm glad I'll have something of significant visual interest to photograph. Haven't been down there since I did a news shoot for school back at the end of 2017. Hopefully it will be warmer than it was then.
  13. Actor Sean Connery has passed away October 31, 2020 at the age of 90. https://ca.reuters.com/article/topNews/idCAKBN27G0IU
  14. Sentences that aged like milk: Slovakia orders partial lockdown, plans nationwide testing 🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦
  15. One from right before the torrential downpour last night. I have no idea if this photo works for me or not; honest feedback would be appreciated.
