It is about 36 hours after Chicago (and the rest of Illinois) opened up, and I'm still conflicted about whether I'm going to enter places without a mask in hand, or on my face. I've gotten a copy of my vaccination record laminated and it's in my purse, but I keep remembering news stories about douchecanoes boasting about having fake vaccination records, and I don't want anyone to side-eye me suspiciously. So for now, I'm going to be wearing my mask everywhere.
I haven't been outside today, except to take out the garbage, and I'm glad I didn't go out thereafter. Even the short trip to the dumpster was uncomfortable. At that point, the sun was shining with a will, and it just got warmer and warmer until we got a relatively quick thunderstorm in the middle afternoon. And then the sun reappeared.

Ah. It's 81F. Yay.
I really do miss the ability to be out in the sun and imitate salamanders. I used to have that ability, and I used to love the heat. These days, not so much.
Today, I did manage to get at least two sentences done on both of my fiction endeavors. I count that as a win. I also found some "Zombieland Saga" fics on AO3 - and that's definitely a win. *stans for Best Girl Tae-chan like a stanning thing*
Hmm. Alright, I'll end this by saying I love discovering music on YouTube. I am still luxuriating in my discovery of guitarist Gabor Szabo. Here's some information about him, and here's my favorite album of his (thus far at least.)
