Only one person in the supermarket not respecting distancing when I was in there, but I nearly lost my temper when a bloke I walked past criticised me for keeping a 2m distance from him, saying "you don't need to move out that far". I'm trying to keep myself and him safe in case either of us have it. It's not a big deal but it did annoy me.

Brisbane has been relatively OK in this whole mess but we've just gone into a hard three day lockdown. Nothing compared to you UK folk, I know, but I suddenly felt an intense prickle of fear earlier at the idea it could/likely will extend beyond that because people can be idiots. I was working during the last, longer one so my life didn't actually change that much (ie: I went to work then came home). Started smoking again for the first time in 7 years so that's nice.

I'm still working in office but fortunately we're a small enough company we can distance while working. However, cycling there and back is getting my goat as I go through the roads in town centre and am seeing so many pillocks who still don't mask up or make any effort to distance.

And I hate to generalise, but what the fuck's the problem with runners? Loads of them out at the minute (good for them for doing it in this cold) but of all the ones I've seen not one has worn a mask, or made any effort to distance.

I get that wearing a mask or snood won't be fun while you're running but they're huffing their droplets out all over town, always making a point of skirting within inches of other people out walking. Just selfish bastardry, really. Buy a snood and act like there's a pandemic on you athletic pricks.

Yeah, I felt like a bit of a twat moaning about this in the first lockdown but it does worry me, especially now, given the evident ease of transmission with the new variations. Exercise is obviously really important but there's something irritating about the way lots of runners just barrel past a whisker's breadth away on a narrow pavement, chucking lungfuls everywhere.

I mean god forbid anything should momentarily interrupt your cast-iron fitness regime, no that's OK, I'll step out of the way for the umpteenth time on my walk, you're welcome, it's not like I'm also on a limited lunch break and do not have all the time in the world to get my daily exercise in while trying to avoid the 'vid (yes, I know I'm obviously not some honed Lycra-clad fitness freak but it still counts as exercise). Petty I know, but I always make sure I give people distance and barely anyone ever acknowledges it.

I'm not sure how anyone's managing to keep it together during this everlasting shitshow.  Best wishes to everyone in the thread x.

My chest is holding its annual Extreme Emotion Winter Olympics.

Today's Dread And Doom event sees ski-less skiers trying to ski down an actively volcano-ing volcano. Will they make it before the lava goes splash splash sizzle? Find out - only on the TTC (Terror Telecasting Corporation).

RE: Runners - I get the impression that a lot of people took up running as their allotted daily exercise during the first lockdown, and therefore haven't developed or been aware of any sort of etiquette about it.

God know that you might think about it beforehand but nah, that's too much for some people, it would seem.

After eulogising about Woebot earlier I have just uninstalled it. It's a clever idea but after a week of use its limitations became glaringly apparent and I was starting to find it irritating. It also hasn't been programmed to acknowledge the pandemic and discuss anxiety caused by it. I'm not feeling irrational negative thoughts now, just perfectly rational negagive thoughts.

Been really struggling lately. Feeling really scared for the first time since this began. Looking at the news headlines and seeing the latest figures is really getting me down. I'm back at work but have the choice between travelling by bus, cycling over ice or walking a seven mile round trip in the cold. The last of those is seriously the least unappealing, no way am I getting on a bus right now. Got a shitload of work planned for the next few weeks and because there's a limit on how long anyone can stay inside my workplace I somehow have to manage it all as if I were a part-time worker.

On the bright side, it looks like Mr Jam's parents will be getting their vaccines soon, and that was really important to me so that's been good to know.

The worst thing for me is there being no end in sight. Walking past all the boarded up shops and pubs is really getting me down. I just want to go to sleep and not wake up until it's all over.

Sorry, just can't sleep and felt like a bit of a rant. I hope you're all holding up yourselves, feel free to vent back at me if you like.

I read that emissions in the US have been the lowest in decades which made me mega happy. Still loving this.

That is nice, yes. I want to go and enjoy some unspoiled nature myself, far from the traffic, but the news of people being arrested by jobsworth police officers for straying a little too far from home in a bid to try and stay sane is putting me off. I really want to go and see my friend the Dunsapie Loch otter, staying in this tiny little radius is driving me up the wall.

Yaaaaay!

I posted that in the Wildlife Spotting thread. The otter is cheeky but the swans are hardnuts.

Gary, Sandra and their five cygnets (Dee, Dennis, Frank, Mac and Charlie) have moved to St. Margaret's Loch now and I still feed them pumpkin seeds when I get the chance.

Had a dream this morning that I woke up to the news that the Brazilian variant was unstoppable and that humanity would be gone in a couple of weeks and there was nothing anyone could do about it.

Had a really bad night's sleep last night. I was exhausted but every time I managed to drop off I would have some nightmare that would wake me up again. I could never remember exactly what I'd been dreaming about but I'd immediately check to see if my hands or eyes or teeth were intact, or if I had any strange lumps. Think I might have been dreaming about getting ill or having body parts lopped off. Then I'd be afraid to fall asleep again. Fucking knackered now.

Going into to werk tomorrow, think I'll make my commute a lovely walk.

Hello everyone, i feel super shitty as both nan and uncle are defo going to die of covids as they both have total renal failure and it's just a matter of when not it if. This is excrusicating, even more so as me and all my family can't see them or each other for comfort.

Hey, boston crebs, pls add this to your list of why we should actually kill all covid offenders
