I had a good birthday, yes. I got the original TRIGUN anime, plus a new TV stand for my new TV. Unfortunately, I now need a new DVD player, but that should be easy enough to source.

I appreciate the birthday cake you posted for me.

I’m so happy to see the real OG Luke Skywalker back in The Mandalorian.
Also, Kringle bought me Peace Talks.  :D

The new glasses are very well.

But life has effectively ground to a halt because my government has lost its mind in its overreaction to a respiratory ailment. 4000 British medical experts have written to the government to that effect. Following the rules is like playing Calvinball, they change so rapidly and unpredictably. 110,000 people have had to wait for over a year to get treatment because the NHS has been preserved in amber so “it’s not overwhelmed”. Professor Karel Sikora, Oncologist at the University of Manchester, predicts between 20,000 - 50,000 excess deaths from cancer due to this hyper focus.

COVID-19 is a blip. The long term consequences of the overreaction will not be. Especially the psychological ones.

In his series “Supernova in the East” Dan Carlin goes into detail about the Japanese actions in China, especially Nanking. He points out, as bad as things got there, the press still made things up, like two Japanese soldiers engaging in a beheading contest. He also points out that what previous Empires, like the Assyrians, would have celebrated, we seek to minimise, or deny altogether.

Also, a little perspective:
So we don’t forget the *other* victims of the Nazi regime.

Not yet. I promise to get around to it. :P
In other news, I have new glasses. The old ones practically had dirt ground into the lenses.

A lot could have been avoided if Harry had the sense not to protect Murphy against her will, and in denial of her agency as an adult and a cop. Also, explaining “It’s a wizard thing, I can’t talk about it and they will kill me if I do. And then they will kill you.” would have gone a long way to establishing a greater degree of trust, if not improving Murph’s temper.

I can imagine the dialogue going something like this:
Murphy: “I’m a cop, Dresden, I can protect myself.”
Harry: “Not against this. They will blind side you. You won’t see them coming.”
And then Murphy would have enough knowledge to decide for herself. It’s made fairly clear in the series that it’s Harry’s gynocentrism that gets on her wick, and justly so.
