Good morning Deskers!
Look at me – not only writing a blog – but getting it out on time!
Well, it’s been a week, hasn’t it?
Where to begin?
First, we had Diana Gabaldon release Book 9 of the Outlander series – “Go Tell the Bees I am Gone” and Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish release “Clanlands Almanac” in all its various forms.
Shortly thereafter, OUTLANDER HQ dropped the opening credit sequence for the 6th season of Outlander – and we all lost our minds!
On the personal front – I was officially announced as part of the Outlander Fan Documentary crew – as part of their Social Media team, I had a fantastic chat to my friend Kristine from the UK regarding her experience meeting Sam and Graham at the Waaterstones Piccadilly instore signing for their new book and yesterday saw me meet my fellow #SHAGger and friend Jo Patton for the first time in person!
Add to that (In the real world where I adult) work has been flat out busy in the lead up to the Festive Season – It’s December already … What??!, I’ve found a new Radio Station that I like and have been listening to it for much of the weekend and… AND… to the surprise of nobody … there’s a new Covid Variant to be worried about. This one they’ve called OMICROM. Which I suppose means SHIT BE FUCKED, BITCHES!! In Greek or Latin or something.
With the way the world is still struggling with the DELTA variant, knowing there’s a new variant just on the Horizon (scratch that – It’s made its way to several different countries already and it was only discovered in South Africa last week!) to say that I’m worried about it – is the understatement of the year. I mean, look around. Do you see a fully vaccinated, fully protected world yet? No? Me neither. I am convinced we (the World) will be dealing with this until the year 2025 and even then, there is no guarantee that it’ll be entirely gone. My best guess is that by then, there’ll be measures in place that will *hopefully* be able to protect the population from whatever version of the variant we have at that stage … Time will tell.
On that note, that’s about it for now. Don’t forget to check out all the goings on with the links I’ve posted on this blog, and I’ll catch you all next Sunday!
Cheers for reading,
