CoViD-19: County Reaches 50.2% of 12+ Fully Vaccinated; Add More Mobile Sites | Psaki Schools Doocy, Again | San Jose Mayor Calls Anti-California Naysayers "Eeyore Caucus"; Governor Signs New Housing Legislation |


My calendar says today is National Rescue Dog Day. A Recent Pic of Fi. (Taken 5.5.21 at Fiesta Island)

I have had a really hard time motivating this week and I can't really pinpoint it, but I'm working on it. I will try better to get out of the house on Friday after being unsuccessful today and yesterday. Maybe the May Gray hits me more than I realized. Whatever the case may be, I'm looking forward to the weekend, which is funny because my days all kinda blur together but on a weekday I've got 240 new emails waiting for me by noon and that isn't the case on weekends, so I like the chill vibes. 

I did watch all the briefings today: the White House with Jen Psaki, the State with Governor Newsom and some Bay Area leaders as well as Toni Atkins, and the County with Fletch and Vargas. I do have to point out this hilarious moment when the mayor of San Jose referred to the naysayers who try and drag California with inaccurate talking points as the "Eeyore Caucus" and it was kind of hilarious. Psaki had yet another exchange with Peter Doocy from Fox which is always entertaining. I put that link below because it's a little longer. It's also kinda funny to watch because literally as they were having the briefing, behind the scenes an Israeli-Hamas ceasefire was being sorted and would go into effect hours later. It's almost like the Biden Administration is effectively handling every chaotic and distressful situation that comes their way. Meanwhile the County reported that more than half of the eligible people are fully vaccinated. (50.2%, to be exact) What a time to be alive. 

It's getting late and Darren and I have finally jumped back into The Handmaid's Tale, so I better get to it. Stay safe out there.
