Tuesday ( Day Zero)

Another case from overseas and already contained. My wrist hurts and, after a glimpse at the headlines, I don't want to go deeper.

My wrist hurt since yesterday, and my dumb arse spent yesterday bingeing She-Ra and writing a Terrible Tiefling Tale. My loss but my Patreon's gain.

PLNs today include psyching myself for duck herding - calling the people at NDIS and making sure my wires are no longer crossed. Things need to be done before Scotty From Marketing makes certain that no disabled people actually get any help.

Signing Chaos up for that for two years should help prevent shenanigans. I hope.

Leave it to the governing body to hold onto coin like nobody's business.

On the plus side, I now have three sliced loafs in the freezer for any arising need. Small plus, but taking the little victories.

Sigh. Onwards I go.

Challenge #02812-G255: You Were Warned

[translated and changed a little bit from polish movie]

A: You want to attack humans?

B: Yes, their planet has some materials that I need

A: This one will be tough. On a daily basis humans are annoying, but they love when they are under attack! I'm telling you! In the first 5 days they're all going to start a resistance movement and turn into guerrillas! -- Anon Guest

[AN: NGL I want to see a dub of that Polish movie. I

Monday - Day Zero

Two new cases. One from overseas and the other a contact of a previous case. All in quarantine and secure.

Today is unfuckening nonsense, Instant Story, and maybe getting to one hundred words in my novel. If I feel like it. My writing has been a little in a Meh mood and school holidays don't help that along much.

It looks like the Long Haulers are in for a very long haul as some lingering symptoms look like they're going to be

Challenge #02811-G254: A Show of Respect

Have you ever looked at a young human and thought "this is a creature that should terrify me"? I have. My unit came upon an educational facility. We had been scouting the planet, carefully, silently. The humans thought we were just tourists, we did our best to blend in. Find their weaknesses, they seemed to have many. But it was not until what we sat in that educational facility that fateful evening that convinced all of us that this colony was not

Sunday - Day Two

Hope blooms for me these school holidays. Maybe the Karen Squad has had enough of acting like entitled little brats and has actually grown a sense of consequence for their actions. There's still waiting until next Saturday to see if Brisbane's protests blow up.

In the news:

  • Victorians in the majority are staying at home and hating the people who keep protesting the ongoing lockdowns
  • Kmart now offers food storage solutions for $1
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the bulwarks for womens'

Challenge #02810-G253: Remember Rule One

A new combat instructor was assigned to my battalion. If I remember the instructor is that of the human race. They were formerly introduced to us and to be honest I was not impressed. The human was only two-thirds my size and look squishy as a havenworlder, hard to believe that they’re from a deathworld. I was given the chance to spar with the human, I couldn’t even touch them. -- Anon Guest

Many hear a word like "Deathworlder" and

Saturday - Day One

No new cases. I breathe. I also continue to count down for the last week of Brisbane's anti-lockdown protests causing more lockdown. China continues to show how strong it is by threatening the entire world around it and the Muppet continues to be an idiot in regards to maintaining his hold on his tinfoil crown.

He's been called out repeatedly on just letting US citizens die so he could reap the rewards from the market boost.

It's all a clusterfuck. I have

Challenge #02809-G252: Don't Be Fooled

Lots of stories with humans and delicate avian Havenworlders. How about one where the 'bird' descended from something like a cassowary. -- Knitnan

[AN: Compared with Humans, Cassowaries still have their weak points. The trick, of course, is getting close enough to exploit them. Cassowaries count as aviasaurs, and may not be Havenworlders by technicality.]

People tend to assume. If a cogniscent species looks like a bird, it's probably a Havenworlder. Many people coming across the aviasaurs make that assumption. Too many

Friday - Day Zero

One new case linked to a previous case, and already in quarantine. A week left, more or less, until the Brisbane anti-lockdown protests blow up in a spate of new cases.

Sigh.

The more it goes on, the more it keeps on going on. Blurgh. It's almost bus o'clock right now, so I will be working on potentially the last 100 words in my novel for two weeks because school holidays.

I'm back and my PLNs include: bread, unfuckening, and today's Instant.

Challenge #02808-G251: The Revenge Paradox

“Do you want revenge?” I offer this many times, call me cruel or whatnot. The offer still stand. I offer you new life, let’s not be bound by the chains of hatred and live a glorious life! There’s a thing called karma and it pays twofold. Watch as you victim wallow in despair, and become jealous of your new spirit held high. Watch as they beg you to come back to their lives. That’s where you truly know, you

Thursday - Day One!

Health officials are saying "keep the borders closed," whilst business-minded folks are yelling for our Premier's head for doing that. Even Sweden has called out the nonsense surrounding their "example" in which so many people died for the Great Bull God.

ScoMo will only be allowed

There's a Karen out there who legit threw down with an elderly man over an essentially worthless pencil topper in the vague shape of a Disney franchise personality. That's pretty close to Peak Karen behaviour.

Challenge #02807-G250: The True Story

I ask you not as emperor, but as a father. I do not demand you become her protector, I humbly request that you become her friend. -- Anon Guest

You know the story of the Lindwyrm. Or rather, you think you know it. You know the most of it. Stories change with each teller. Some add. Some subtract. Names are lost, times and places blur until all that's left is the phrase, Once upon a time...

By then, almost all of the

Wednesday - Day Zero

Yesterday's case happens to be from overseas and already contained, so there's more hope for days free of idiocy from the infected.

Idiocy from everywhere else...

The Muppet's way of handling Climate change is the same as his way of handling the plague. Swear that it's going to go away and then singsong "I'm not listening, nerny nerny ner ner."

Sigh.

They're talking about opening up the borders again and it is honestly too soon. NSW and Victoria are still rife with

Challenge #02806-G249: Not as We Know it

Could intelligent life arise around deepsea hydrothermal vents? -- Anon Guest

Intelligent life is very egocentric when theorising about other intelligent life. They imagine distant worlds like their own, with lifeforms possessing body patterns like their own. They don't often look much further than their own evolutionary path to pat themselves on the back and say, Yes. Aliens will be a lot like us.

The scientists of Earth frequently ignore the intelligent life already present around them. Cetaceans and octopi are examples

Tuesday - Day 2

I have shrinky business going on and talking about how to handle Miss Chaos being obstinate at school versus how to help Mayhem with the social anxiety. It's not my job to fix everything, but I should be able to help a little bit.

The blackout didn't happen because it's actually happening on the 28th. I got my wires crossed. Shocker.

Which is why I double-checked my calendar today to make sure I have the shrinky business. Which I do. Of course
