Day One

A 62-post collection

Monday, Day One, Recovery

Plague news: No new cases! There's twenty-eight total active cases, nineteen of those are in hospital, with one in the ICU. Australia's at 84% first vax, 67.8% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 72% first vax, 56.6% fully vaxxed.

I'm a little mentally toasted from D&D last night. I do these things to myself. I know it. I can fight to keep myself awake until bedtime so I'm better at doing tomorrow.


My players are trying to crack the code of the Chaos Table. Good luck, kiddos. I think of more shit to pull on the daily.

In the news:

  • Victoria enjoying new freedoms thanks to massive vax rollout
  • Missing girl vanished in an "unusual" way
  • Bill Gates' daughter has a splashy wedding
  • Noisy Minahs are smarter than humans
  • Price of petrol skyrockets
  • Huge baby born twice the size of the regular kind
  • Some fuckwit threw a tanty on a United Airlines flight
  • Qld has new border rules
  • China's new war angle
  • Antivaxxer scared of forced plague jab, also scared of losing job

And now - storytime.

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 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

Saturday, Day 1, PLNning

Plague news: No new cases! Thirty-one total active cases, nineteen are in hospital. Australia's at 81% first vax, 60% fully vaxxed. Queensland's up to 51% fully vaxxed. We're getting better.

Today, I cook and eat my bikkie because I forgot about my Starters until long after I had other forms of nutrition. Whoops. Today I also indulge in other tasty treats. Hooray.

Otherwise, I post my story and then goof off for the day.

I have to be asleep by six to

Monday, Day 1, OMW

Plague news: No new cases! We have seventeen total active cases, seven of those are in hospital. First vaxxed are holding steady(ish) at 75% [closing on 76%] and rising to 51% fully vaxxed. Queensland is still below the bar with 45% of the population fully vaccinated.

My personal health news: my arm is back to what passes for normal. I'm on antibiotics and steroids for the lung gobbets, which are now smaller and harder to get rid of -_- Win

Saturday, Day 1, Unfuckening Part 2

Plague news: no new cases! Twenty total active cases with only nine in hospital. Australia's almost at 75% first-vax and 50% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 44% fully vaxed. I am still rather weary but I have only minor aches in my arm now.

I am going to cut up all the free range cardboard so it takes up less space, and finally go through the Pile from the computer room floor.

I was distracted by getting new kitty litter yesterday. Beloved came

Monday, Day 1, School Hols

Plague news: No new cases. Twenty-seven total active cases, nineteen in hospital, and none in the ICU any more. Yay?

We finally have the stuff to turn my hair Really Blue and we're going to. But to really begin I'm going to get a broom and round up the nonsense all over the floor. We need to tidy.

Beloved has been a whirlwind and I should firkin help out. Now that I can.

In the news:

  • Body found in the Wyoming leads

Monday, Day 1, Shenanigans

Plague news: No new cases! Twenty-one total active cases, fourteen of those are in hospital.

Beloved and I are unfucking the house some more. My whirlwind wife is making progress I never thought possible. It's amazing.

Somewhere in our agenda, there's going to be a fix for my hair. We over-estimated the power of one of the chemicals and it came out as the wrong sort of blue. Whoops.

There's also going to be cauliflower gnocci at some point.

In other news,

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress

Plague news: no new cases! Eighteen total active cases, with fourteen in hospital.

Today, I need to go forth and purchase for myself some tinned fish. Aldi is good for that.

BUT that will happen after I've posted today's story, and likely after I've fed everyone the latest instalment of my Tiefling's sad sad backstory.

I have (temporarily) run out of edits to work on for Adapting so I don't have to fret about that. Yay? But I still have to fret

Saturday, Day 1, Editing HOOOOO!

Plague news: No new cases! There's eighteen total active cases in Queensland and fifteen of them are in hospital.

They can yell about our border control, but we stepped on Delta and they didn't. So ner.

I have PLNs today to polish the entirety of Chapter One of Adapting. In fits and starts, belike, but I will get all the edits seen to. I also plot to eat a lot of carbs as a reward.

In the news:

  • Israel hit with a

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress and Jab

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! Twenty-three total active cases, with seventeen in the hospital.

These are numbers I like to see.

Today's the day I get sub-zero serum added into my arm and become a superhuman wifi hotspot a little better protected against the plague. Huzzah. I also have all day to low-key panic about this.

Of course you, my lovely readers, get another installment of my terrible Tiefling's backstory that explains exactly why he's such a paranoid arsehole with a prickly

Thursday, Day 1, Not Organised

Plague news: Zero new cases! Thirty-seven total active cases, twenty one in hospital, two in the ICU.

We're getting on top of the outbreak. Not completely safe yet, but we're getting there.

We now possess a video doorbell. Which came with a sticker that is impossible to affix to any household surface. I've sought help about this but I don't have high hopes.

Beloved is going to make a vinyl replacement for the sticker that won't at some point later tonight. Meanwhile,

Monday, Day 1, Moving Along

Plague news: No new cases! Thirty-nine total active cases, eighteen in hospital, and one in the ICU.

Capt S. has demanded more time with us in return for her not spouting a bunch of TERF talking points in our direction. IDK how to feel about that, but it's another Saturday not spent catching up on missing output or making gains on any other project in progress. OTOH we did kind of spend the entire visit talking with an Aunt about it on

Friday, Day 1, Gearing Up

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! Seventy-nine total active cases, with twenty-one in hospital and one in the ICU.

Anxiety is at a peak here in the household as today we PLN to get some final gussying-up before we drop the big reveal tomorrow. That will be happening after household unfuckening and maybe after Chaos returns from school.

I'm still being gentle with myself until all reasons to be panicking are dealt with. One way or another. Stress is hell on inspiration.

Tuesday, Day 1, Shrinky Bzns

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! One hundred and twenty-nine total active cases, with thirty-four in hospital, one in the ICU.

It is so nice to see the numbers dwindling. I can breathe a little easier even if I am still wearing a mask.

I have already posted my story for Tale Foundry but my lucky Patrons will be seeing the extended version that I had to cut because word limits.

Today is not a good day for internets in this household so

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress

Plague news: No new cases. Twenty-five total active cases, twenty-five in hospital, and one in the ICU.

I'm booked to get my Pfizer shots in September. Huzzah. After I'm over that nonsense, I'll sync Chaos' shots with the holidays so she can be miserable at home with them... and discuss things with Mayhem about his. Beloved is apparently getting their shots at work. I don't know the time window there.


More Terrible Tiefling Tale is due on my Wordpress and I
