Today we ordered Home Depot stuff online, and I went in and picked it up.  Never touched another person and was always 6ft from everyone.  It was really weird.  I cut the grass as well, which was a huge mistake because allergies have now made me think I'm dying.  Mrs. Sirharles is getting ready to teach online and I am still going in to work.  I don't have the ability to telecommute.  But there is only three of us in the office and we are all being pretty careful.  Mrs. Sirharles did tell me to stop reading as much news as I have been because I'm freaking her out about food shortages.

Photoshoots have all been canceled and I have no client images to work on.  But I'm working on some personal projects and bought a PS4.  Last weekend I was in Mrs. Sirharles face so much she insisted I get one.  LOL.

Paris has beautiful weather this weekend and because there’s no pollution to kill pollen, the plants are sexually abusing me. I also want to kick my neighbours in the teeth - not because they’re doing anything particularly bad; simply because I want to smash after... 19... days... in confinement with a toddler.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Too much booze

After the Moco liquor store here became Outbreak Central, it's closed (along with all the others) for the long term. DC liquor stores are so overwhelmed that they're closing as well. Only one remains open, and they're almost always out of stock. We're also losing beer and wine shops almost daily. Only one open in Bethesda now, and it's price gouging like crazy.

(And, for those of you not local -- we're a "dry country," so you can't get alcohol in grocery stores, etc. They have to be designated, dedicated booze spots.)

Anyway -- this means that we now have to drive about an hour or so if we want to restock properly. Or we're paying $30 for bottle of wine that normally cost $10. And beer was the first to go...

So, no being as keenly turned into UK politics as you folks, what happens if it dies? Does Dominic Raab succeed him the way Pence would Trump? A new election? Parliament elects the PM, yes? Not really the people?

Also, this doesn't change anything in terms of Brexit. I know he's the big face of it, but what's done is done. The UK just gets rid of their clown prince.

There's no clear line of succession in the UK.

Raab is the "unofficial" deputy PM (there's always an unofficial deputy PM, for just this sort of situation, and they're selected not based on position or rank but based on the whim of the PM).

If Johnson dies, Raab forms a provisional government (this is done by a quick vote) and the Queen asks the majority party to select an appropriate candidate to become the PM (which could take longer).

As for Brexit, all of this (not just Johnson) will result in yet another extension of the transition day so that we can spend the rest of our fucking lives hearing about Brexit.

Starbucks will run out of light roast on July 12th, 2021, so they'll have to delay Brexit to December 2022 while they sort out the crisis.

I love to sunbath at my bathroom window.

The farmer's market today was weird. Full PPE required, armed and masked guards at the gate, 24 people allowed in at one time with a strict 15 minute shopping limit enforced.

Everything around here is starting to feel weird. All the stores are adopting similar procedures.

Rural WV is still business as usual though I wanted to kill an old lady who refused to local distance as the recycling center. I even lied and said "I'd been sick" and she just shook her head and went about her business, which was apparently getting as close et me as possible with intercourse being involved.
