We got 80! Luckily I haven’t had to use them, and at some point they disappear. The benefit of being in a union, maybe.

We were given 8 hours of "covid pto", I took 4 hours each shot, on the day of the vaccine.

Not exactly a bonfire, but these are the traditional songs associated with Valborg (Walpurgis)

In Sweden we usually celebrate tonight with bonfires and spring songs.

But nothing this year, due to the pandemic.

We get a special time off category for COVID so we don't have to use up PTO, and we can use it for time taken to get vaccinated. So if I feel bad after my second dose next week, I'll use it for that, too.

That's wonderful! I had to use my lunch break to get my second dose. Fortunately, the drug store was just a short walk, but I still fudged the time a little bit.  ::)

My one enormous peeve is not being able to live without it.  >:(

There will probably be smaller peeves that come to mind from time to time.

Bon appétit!

There were times I considered shutting down for the day from work,  but calling out 'tired' seemed to be a wimpy thing to do, so I stayed online at work.

I was on an assignment with a colleague the day he got his shot, and felt so terrible he had cancelled all work for the rest of the day. But he's a photographer and his work would have been taking pictures at hockey games, so pretty rigorous. I talked to him later and he said he'd had a terrible night. I've heard it's harder on younger people, though, and he's in his 20s.

Witches gather on the summit of the Brocken in the Harz Mountains to celebrate a feast with the Devil.
