Getting vaccinated was supposed to change things for me, but instead, it's still pretty much the same. Several of our overseas trips have evaporated and even going overseas is sill forbidden, so the continued suspensions of cruises by Viking has been a slap in the face. We have been insulted several times over. I am allowed to have my birthday trip to Orlando this year and go to Colorado, but that's it. If Viking does start cruising again, I will go on them, but after we finish with them, I would have to think several times about going on any future cruises with them since they have not been able to deliver on a return to cruising.
My taste in fanfiction is still pretty much the same, the more normal stories with some slash stories, as long as they're tasteful and not overly gross.
