Planning and unexpected visitors

Now that things are opening up again here in Denmark, we need a Covid Passport. That can either be proof of full vaccination, a negative test that's less than 72 hours old, or a positive test that's more than two weeks old but less than 6 months(I think). I never had a PCR confirmation test done when I was positive and I am still not vaccinated so I need a negative test.
I need the test when I get a massage at my physiotherapist's. Those appointments are on Wednesdays so I get tested on Monday. The first time was easy and I worked on the Monday before and last week I just went to a place nearby (it's only open on Mondays).

Thursday next week the movie theater opens up again and I'm strongly considering going. I want to watch 'Promising Young Woman' and maybe 'Chaos Walking'. It's possible to catch both movies on Thursday right after each other. So far there's only one seat booked for 'Promising Young Woman' at 16:10 and 7 seats booked for 'Chaos Walking' at 13:30.

I would need a test done on Tuesday to be sure I have a negative result that's less than 72 hours. I can't go to my "usual place" because it's only open on Mondays. I had booked a time at the big test center at 11:20 on Tuesday but then I remembered that it doesn't matter because when I get the test Monday I'll lose my Tuesday appointment anyway (it's a stupid system but that's how it is). So right now my hope is that I can book an appointment for Tuesday either Monday evening or Tuesday morning. If not, I'll have to find a place for walk-in antigen tests Tuesday or Wednesday.
It's annoying but if this is what it takes to keep the numbers down while reopening, I'll go it. Anything to avoid a third wave!


Welcome me with open arms

I don't remember my birth, I just know I have been alone for as long as I can remember. It's been a long time. A very very long time. It's been lonely and cold, so so cold. And dark. The cold and darkness seem to have an amplifying effect on the loneliness.
I've briefly met others of my kind and I've seen others that are not like me at all. Both have been a joy since anything that breaks the monotony of the darkness and the cold is appreciated.

The bright lights are my favorites. They are too hot sometimes though. But they do make me very excited and I wave and yell at them the best I can. They never wave back or even notice I'm there. They're so bright and big and beautiful and I'd do anything to get even closer!

What I long for is a warm embrace. To be held tightly and my existence acknowledged by something else. I've been close a few times, though forces unknown to me seem to have other plans. I'm not sure it'll ever actually happen but a comet can dream, right? Perhaps not, but I have no intentions of stopping.
