They eased it here way too soon, now we have an incredibly high amount of infections and barely any measures.

It sounds like the Netherlands and the UK came to a similar conclusion. My theory is that behind closed doors, governments of this ilk have decided, with the levels of vaccination they've reached, which was initially, primarily aimed at the vulnerable, it's now okay to allow nature to take its course.

Wouldn't say that, NL has never been remotely as strict as the US was. There was never an obligation to stay at home for instance. During the first wave all shops stayed open. Sure our economy wasn't hit as badly as of surrounding countries but we had a relatively high toll and had to resort to moving intensive care patients to Germany very early on in the crisis.

We were back to under 6000 new infections, which considering not too long ago was a dayly 11000, is a good thing. We hope it continues.
A lot of infections came from the nightlife circuit, and all discos etc are now again closed.

Sounds like the herd immunity solution was on the table from early on in the case of the Netherlands then. Not as blatant as Brazil though.

True. Doesn't look like it's working.

My second shot was pretty high up in my arm, more on my shoulder than in my arm. It was quite painful last night, had to get out for some paracetamols because I just couldn't find a way of lying down without it hurting badly. Feels better now but I'm zleepy.

Then again I had 2 days off and played an unfathomablte amount of Cluedo. Hurray!

After deleting my beginner sax videos from YouTube, I have finally got around to posting a video of me practicing the bari sax section from my composition Antelope Tweeds.

Very nice!

Arm's OK unless I workout.

Funfair is in Eindhoven about now but I don't think I'll be going unless it's raining cats and dogs. :D

Absolutely! I hate crowds at the best of times and Eindhoven being the sleepy place it is, the funfair is beyond crowded when the weather is good. Even now that they have less attractions.

Ah! That makes perfect sense now. I'm the same with public venues. I'm pretty gregarious when I'm in the mood, but I don't like crowds.

Pfff, back to work. I had a video conference with the guy with stillborn child. Nice guy, friendly and like me interested in Japanese culture, so it was quite a shock to hear what happen of him - especially since, due to the forced distance, I didn't even know his wife was pregnant.

It's still him but you can tell the experience got to him.

Having a nasty day, very busy at work and I am feeling tired and prickly.


All the same half of my prize came in.

I had a gift voucher for Amazon with a value of Ä30, as a prize for that murder game I won. I wanted to buy something Cluedo related and when I saw Cluedo: Master Detective, a spin-off with extra suspects, weapons and rooms, for 24 USD, I was tickled pink.

But when I made an account and added my voucher, Amazon automatically added it to a Dutch account and I could only use it when I was on the Dutch Amazon site, not the American one. Aside from being treated to cringeworthy machine translation, iis offer was decidedly less, half of it was overly expensive scoring tabs - and the Master Detective game cost more than Ä80.

So then it was shopping. Highly frustrating when I searched for Dir en grey and the automatic translator turned it into "dieren grijs" (animals grey) and proceeded to produce grey animal results.

And then I remembered - for years I had the complete Primus collection but for feduciary reasons I was 2 albums behind;
And a day later I have both Chocolate Factory and Desaturating 7 lying next to me.

Right now, life feels pretty good all of a sudden!

Unfortunate when winning a prize turns into a bit of a nuisance.

Had a dinner party with 2 of my fellow colleagues, which was great fun! Was quite a bit of a cycling trip though, it's been a while since I cycled this far.
My colleague is a brilliant cook - had some great Indonesian food - , she lives in a flat with a view on a large park, so we could watch the bunnies late in the evening, and we talked lots.

Is there a vaccine pass in the Netherlands or is it completely lax?

There is a vaccine pass (basically a QR code you get) and it's been cracked I think.
