Metropolitan Opera just announced they're staying closed for another year. Considering all their season ticket holders are 100 years old, probably a wise move.

I tested negative to Covid yesterday and positive today. No symptoms what so ever. Covid had the courage to challenge me. Bad idea.

It is weird this conflation of fun or even pleasure with infection. Like how we were allowed to run outside or do sit ups but we weren't allowed to read a book in the sun.

In fairness they were pushing it with music you could hear for miles and the big doors open, everyone dancing... I was just texting Liza saying how come police shut down our party and they let this - no wait a sec

‘Twas ever thus. Gin panics, AIDS, the old Protestant work ethic looms large.

Seems to be Municipal Police - weird cos round the corner is one of the biggest police stations (normal police I mean) in Lisbon but they never seem to actually do anything. The other day there were a load of guys sitting outside a shop on a busy street smoking crack within sight of maybe 50 police cars and vans etc these guys seem to really elevate looking the other way and doing fuck all to another level - I admire that.

Isn't it the case, though, that all drugs are decriminalized for personal use over there? I know that's not the same as actual legalization, but I can see why cops might take the view of "if they're not causing trouble or selling it themselves, then we'll leave them to it".
