non-book-related, work, sick, meds
Had a massive coughing fit at work yesterday and was convinced by all 3 bosses that I needed a doctor even though I knew they'd just tell me it was a virus and they can't help.
Surprise, it's a virus! But last time they said it wasn't worth treating the symptoms, this time they loaded me up with cough suppressants and a lidocaine gargle. Yay?
So, off to work again, drugs suppressing my illness just enough so I'm not a nuisance!
Capitalism is fucky.
A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.
Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.
Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.
Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.
This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.
Thanks for stopping by!
