Realm of the InterNutter

Thoughts, stories and ideas.

Sunday, Day 0, PLNs?

Plague news: Three new cases, all imports. There's twenty-nine total active cases, eighteen of those are in hospital and one of those is in the ICU. Australia's at 84% first vax, 67% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 72% first vax and 56% fully vaxxed.

We're going to need all those vaccines because NSW is opening up to a global influx of Knomiras who won't pay attention to any rule they don't like. Yay.

Beloved will be making something wonderful with very little of my help, I guess. Mostly because Sundays are my Sleep Dep days because Interesting Schedule.

Speaking of interesting schedules, Toasty was streaming, Tale Foundry has rescheduled, and I have a little over half an hour before I run my stream. Yay.

In the news:

  • You can get a jab at Bunnings as well as your snag inna slice
  • Lisa Wilkins fired over the phone from being co-host on Today, and her male co-host continues to be old on television...
  • Channel 7 stars are being dickholes
  • Dad nets thousands making organic nut butter
  • 4YO vanishes from outback campsite
  • China threatens tiny country
  • Vax-hesitant nation hits new death count high
  • Pub shut down over antivax support
  • Earthquake in Bali
  • RL Squid game halted in South Korea
  • Photo of Covid victim triple plastic-wrapped and drenched in disinfectant shocks the world

And soon... storytime.

Challenge #03186-H277: Pax Draconis

A massive dark dragon, breath of great flame. Enormous wings, hide oddly smooth and soft. The maw was filled with large teeth, the dark red eyes slitted and serpent-like. Yet the voice? Warm, unusually kind, intelligent, gentle. The feared, hated, creature, has never killed save non-intelligent animals for food, and only wanted peace between itself and others. Yet the only ones willing to listen, were the kobolds who'd made their home within its den. Then, came travelers, would they listen to the

Saturday, Day 0, Woodworking!

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. There's twenty-nine total active cases, eighteen of those are in hospital and one of those is in the ICU. Australia's at 84% first vax, 66% fully vaxxed. Queensland's reached 71.7% first vax, and 55.5% fully vaxxed.

Today, my love and I are adding some much needed shelves to the ensuite so there's room for all the little bottles and things she needs for her beauty routine.

That may take most of the day.

Challenge #03185-H276: Divine Intervention

Poor Kevin. Due to the nature of his fate, or perhaps destiny and prophecy had decided to be particularly interesting, a new bow showed up one evening as everyone slept. It only worked for Kevin, each time he pulled back, an arrow forming. The arrow type depended what was on his mind and in his heart, from healing ones that, when striking an ally, healed their illnesses and wounds, to deadly ones. He shot in anger into the trees after someone insulted

Friday, Day 2, Assorted Nonsense

Plague news: no new cases again. There's thirty total active cases, seventeen in hospital and the poor sod in the ICU got out. Yay. Australia's at 83% first vax, and 65% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 71% first vax and 54% fully vaxxed.

I have Starters to feed, a catbox to clean, a one-thousand-word goal for my novel, and it's raining so the stream is bound to be chunky.

FUN.

At least I save my stream sessions so if the internet goes to

Challenge #03184-H275: Twinkle Twinkle

A young individual is learning to sail and decided to sneak off to practice their lessons in the harbor alone. They are blown out to sea due to a sudden squall and now must remember how to navigate to get back to the harbor and safety. -- Anon Guest

Thursday, Day 1, Organised?

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! There's thirty total active cases, seventeen are in hospital and one of those is in the ICU. Australia's at 83% first vax, 64% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 71% first vax, and 54% fully vaxxed.

Miss Chaos is back to school, and it's nice to see those little squares on the health.gov site filling up. IDK about the red squares meaning fully vaxxed though. Someone else make the colour theory joke.

It's raining! On one hand, nice

Challenge #03183-H274: That's Why a Duck

A geneticist looks into a way of splicing the good luck gene into bad-luckers. Using gene therapy as a way to try to turn around the lonely, painful, lives so many bad luckers are forced to exist within. -- Fighting Fit

The luck gene is a fickle, fickle beast. Some people get the worst luck whilst also being a living good luck charm for everyone around them. That's not the worst of it. Some are bad luck to a huge swathe of

Australia's almost at 83% first vax, but steadily at 63% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 70% first vax and 53% fully vaxxed. Two of those are in post-second-dose recovery at home.

There's

Challenge #03182-H273: Turnabout Refreshment

There will be an equivalent to this happening somewhere where the humans are silently or otherwise freaking out when one of their new friends just goes ahead and chugs some industrial grade cleaner or fuel because it's a delicacy back where they're from XD

I also have 500 words to write, Patreon material to post, and some fiddling about in TaleSpire to do. One of

Challenge #03181-H272: A Message in the Sands of Time

Log date (30/12/2142)

We are humanity, this may the last message you'll find. We are dying. It's been 7 months since the crimson star incident, a series of unfortunate events where several meteorological events wiping 70% of our technology across the solar system and a new pandemic killing four million in the first month. Thousand the months after. Those that survive are crippled, both mentally and physically. Thus we are initiating project Gemini. Humanity will split into two groups. The

Monday, Day 0, Shenanigans!

Plague News: Two new cases, both imports. Thirty-four total active cases, nineteen are in hospital, and one's in the ICU. The vax information has vanished from the news site I know so let's find another source... got it. Australia's at 82% first vax, and almost 62% fully vaxxed. 72% of Queensland has had their first dose, with 52% having gained their second.

My spawns are getting their second dose tomorrow so we're doing our bit.

My PLN for today includes uploading the

Challenge #03180-H271: Drab, Dull, and Dreary

The time the CRC got it wrong. The Humans were new to the Alliance and the CRC were trying to work things out. The room for the Human was grey, everything was so non-offensive it was nearly offensive by it. The Human felt themselves slowly going mad, they needed color, they needed vibrance! The CRC's assigned quarters for the Human liaison would need some serious fixes! -- DaniAndShali

So very many things changed upon being Ambassadored[1]. The cut of the work

My PLN today goeth thusly:
