About Me

Moved to France in September of 2018 after buying our apartment in 2017 after the debacle of the election. We're glad to be here, but we continue to be involved with what's happening in the US.

Third Pfizer jab yesterday at the Centre de Vaccination

Went in at 09:00 CEST after my name was checked off the appointment list by the gendarme on door. Filled out a form with my information, including the date of the last vaccination and gave that, along with my ID to the lady with the computer.
Took a number and sat down. Listened to the guy who came in after me complaining about the wait, which made me laugh, as there were only six people there in front of him.
Five minutes later I was called and presented my ID and the filled out form. The doctor, who looked like he was twelve, asked if I wanted to answer questions in French or English. I have learned that when someone asks that, they want to practice their English. We got the medical questions out of the way, and then he asked where I was from, did I like living in Aix, and why I was in France. Got the injection, which I barely felt, and went to sit down for the required fifteen minutes to make sure I didn't fall over.

Drove home, and no ill effects or soreness. Walked into town, had coffee, then home, and 'did stuff'. Then, when I was cooking dinner around 19:00, I noticed that my arm was a bit sore. Went to bed at 22:00 with a slight headache and a very sore arm. Woke up at midnight for the usual reasons. Back to bed, but wasn't able to sleep, due to the headache, muscle aches, and general malaise. Finally, at 03:00 I took two 500mg paracetamol, which kind of, but almost didn't help. Restless sleep, and some sweating, but no fever. Another 500mg tab at 07:00 and back to sleep. I was then 'out' until noon, still with a bit of headache, though the muscle pain was gone, so another 500mg paracetamol. Finally, at 16:00 I got out of bed, had some tea, and have been up ever since. Still a bit tired, but not how I was feeling five hours ago.

So that's my reaction to the booster. And I'm fine with it. I know that my immune system kicked in, and I'll be as well protected against Covid-19 as I can be. Still be wearing a mask in shops, on public transport, and in really crowded outdoor spaces. Plus, I'll get my flu shot next week.

Changed the paracetamol dosage down to mg's. I know better.

Musk proves, yet again, that he is more focused on profits than people. And yes, we always knew that

Musk's move of Tesla's headquarters from California to Texas goes further to show his absolute lack of civic responsibility.

And if I read DU correctly, the number of potential Tesla buyers here is pretty small. And hopefully, just got smaller still.
