I'm Still As Mean As Cat Shit

Blogger Michael Molovinsky reports that yesterday, a "well worn blogger" received his first Covid vaccine. I thought he must be referring to the Gadfly, who is about 7,000 years old. But as I read on, I discovered he was talking about me. He states I experienced an unusual side effect and had to be hospitalized because it turned into a nice guy.  I have to set the record straight.

It's true I was hospitalized. I'm unsure exactly why although I'm informed that's a precautionary measure they take with all bloggers ever since Molovisnky got his vaccine. Not to worry. I escaped and am back in my secret underground lair.  

The vaccine had no effect on me whatsoever. In September, I received a pneumonia and flu vaccine at the same time. That knocked me for a loop for about a week. But I felt noting from the Moderna vaccine. The nurse who administered it was so good that I never even felt the injection. 

I was as mean as cat shit going in, and remain just as ornery now. In fact, on the way out, I knocked over several cones and rearranged others to lead cars in the wrong direction. 

All kidding aside, the set up at Dorney Park was amazing. I was in and out in about 30 minutes, and that includes a 15-minute wait after the injection. 

Kudos To LVHN. 

Michael also takes issue with some of the numerous ridiculous claims being made by former columnist Bill White. Bill insists, erroneously, that The Morning Call is still a good newspaper. The paper is operating with a skeleton crew and is a mere shadow of itself. I'd say more, but have been taught against speaking ill of the dead. 

Updated 9:50 am: I did have one positive side effect. I usually sleep six or seven hours. I slept 9.5 hours last night. I usually am up once or twice during the night. Not last night. I awoke feeling completely refreshed.

Hey congrats Bernie. We mere mortals will have to wait longer. I am still waiting for my 2019 tax return to be processed too, which the IRS received February a year ago. I am unsure which will happen first, getting vaccinated or the return processed. The usual "Funny" "Interesting" ratings are not available, but I would rate this one funny for sure you old coot.

Glad to read you are your old shitty self. Stay well. I long for the days when The Morning Call brand puff pieces in support of the NIZ corruption. Bill white should write a column that recaps their fabulous performance in monitoring corruption in Allentown. But Hey, they won awards for showing up at the trials.

When the morning call is spun off and purchased, 1'st order of business is a name change.

"We mere mortals will have to wait longer. I am still waiting for my 2019 tax return to be processed too, "

I know how you feel. I'm 69, am in Phase 1a, and waited nearly three months. I attempted to register twice at St Luke's and never received the email so I could actually do so. I was able to register at LVHN. They were supposed to send an email when vaccine appointments were available and never did. I just happened to sign in on the site at a time when appointments were available. Now that it is opening up for everyone, I hope that is bc vaccines are actually available.

I know some people, like Exec Lamont McClure, who could have pulled strings and jumped into 1a. I have a lot of respect for his integrity bc he purposely chose to wait until the vaccine was available for all. Same with guys like Court Administrator Jermaine Greene.

I'd say I'm an accomplished asshole.

"Your relatives must be ever so proud of you."

Well, on the asshole scale in my family, I barely register. We are loaded with major assholes. They are proud of me for trying.

All assholes like themselves, It's part of their assholery. The rest of us are not fooled.
