Aftermath

A 5-post collection

Sunday, Day One, Sigh

Twenty-one active cases, but no new infections. Huzzah? Meanwhile, the USA narrowly avoided being on fire by today. The Repugnicans in office attempted to identify the rioters as "antifa", which makes in now officially code for "anyone the right wing finds currently inconvenient". Whoops.

Several arrests have already been made. Turns out that the Capitol police who were off duty were in the rioting crowd. No firkin wonder the ones on duty treated the rioters with kid gloves.

There needs to be a solid dose of actual justice in the US. Rounding up all these racist arsehats and truly divining how dangerous they are for everyone else's freedom.

"Your freedom to swing your fists ends at my face."

Sigh.

Let's glimpse at the headlines:

  • Iran's ability to make nukes apparently at 90%
  • The seditious riots in the Capitol were, apparently, just the start
  • Plane that vanished may have crashed, as debris has been found
  • Muppet Minions arrested in droves. That's what you get by publishing selfies whilst committing crimes
  • Muppet Minions in office explain that if they all put up opposition to Impeachment 2: Electric Boogaloo, then the impeachment can't go ahead. Nevermind that this clusterfuck is worse than Watergate...
  • New plague rule, if you test positive, you are to remain in quarantine for a fortnight
  • Dude who made a joke instagram of his shopping list slammed for depriving others of stuff they might need

The aftermath and how everyone deals with it is going to cast a LONG shadow on the future.

I'm BACK! (on my bullshit)

So it was revealed that $100 purchased about three kilos of prawns, and three kilos of ice. Fortunately, that was enough HUGE tiger prawns to sate six people so we're fine. There was even enough left over to vac-pack for snacking purposes. Whee.

We still have oodles and boodles of food. I always fret about not having enough for the Yule feast, and I inevitably end up having WAY too much to see us through to New Years'.

My challenge is to

How the heck?

We went sideways without ever meaning to go sideways. Just... things went agley without anyone being aware that they were going agley in the first place and that's how they went... agley-er... than normal.

But at least I have PLNs. I'm going to hide the chocolate cake and stick to the healthier stuff. And we're making Crack Slaw tonight. I'm going to tone down the ingredients a lot so we don't end up having to balance fucktons of vegetables. And if I

Aftermath

Okay, so sugar and lots of it does really terrible things to me. I have learned this now.

Following a breakfast of a Lindt dark choc bunny, a Guylian sampler1 and some sugar-free creaming soda... I had asthma, loose stools, and trouble staying upright.

At least until we headed off to Maccas for lunch for some grease-burgers and, in my case, the promisingly disgusting Cadbury Cream Egg McFlurry. It was actually more of a sundae with caramel sauce and definitely-not-cadbury-flakes on

Queensland! Beautiful one day...

...buggered up the butt by a cyclone, the next!

Doesn't quite fit the Australian Tourism Board's idea of advertising, but neither did The Scared Weird Little Guys' Come to Australia (You Might Accidentally Get Killed).

But this is definite proof that Earth is a Deathworld and Australia ups the overall rating.

As you might guess, we all weathered the storm. A bit of a blackout, but at least we all had hot food before the lights went out.

I did finally get
