One day of mind-boggling fatigue, a good night's rest, then 100% the next morning...

That does sound like the usual pattern - feel like crap for a day, OK the next.

Then, please God let's get the general immunization push going...

11. Still waiting for mine -

I'm old but my state hasn't been able to get enough doses for people under 75. I'm hoping the newly-competent federal government will remedy the situation soon.

4. Cabin in the woods by a river.

Perfect for a shy bookworm. Plenty of solitude and time to read.

With a beach house, everyone wants to come over and party...

6. Vodka and tonic.

Heavy on the vodka. Washington is a free-pour state, so I like to honor that by not being stingy with my cocktails.

I just waved the bottle of tonic water over it, and it's ready to drink...

I'm not so picky these days since it all ends up at the same place.

I'll tackle them tomorrow.

One is an annual physical. Even a perfectly normal, unremarkable exam requires a lot of charting.

Gonna take it easy for now...

Nazis move into a castle and release an old evil.

Good flick!

Sounds interesting. "Releasing an old evil" against Nazis. The old evil probably didn't like the competition.

42. Did you know Queen Elizabeth insists on round ice cubes?

She doesn't like the sound of clinking cubes, and the round ones have miniscule surface area touching other cubes.

Happy Friday, Aristus!

And when you do, do you have a wee dram after each hole? I don't play golf so my answer is no.
