Day One

A 5-post collection

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.

The Muppet continues to attempt to big-note himself despite being called out by people who voted for him. This includes repeating the obvious lies that have continually failed to be true throughout his administration.

Even the people writing about his presidency have called him dangerous and incompetent.

Victoria has only just now dipped below fifty cases in a day and they're talking about relaxing the lockdown? Fuck off. You need to wait until there's two weeks of zero or next to zero cases, and even then, maintain the masks and distancing rules. Make the Karens stay at home or they can stay in a nice, isolated jail cell.

At least, that's how I would do it if I were grand dictator of the world.

Honestly. The choice was to stay in, stay isolated, and stay under a mask for a short time... OR... stay in an extended limbo for as long as the Karen Squad got to do whatever they liked. Victoria's Karen Squad was louder and now here we all are.

The bread is too powerful. Fresh loaves made yesterday have already been predated upon [thanks, Mayhem] despite instructions to finish off the last of the pre-sliced stuff. Kid likes fresh bread and I understand that, but...

Powers damn it... I wanted to have a minimum of two loaves in the freezer by now.

I will be making more bread tomorrow. Fingers crossed that leads to a supply in reserve.

Story soon enough.

Friday - Day One at Last!

Woo! Now I know there's going to be ten-ish days before the protests in Brisbane spark an outbreak, but I am still celebrating the small victories. One day without anyone on the Karen Squad stirring shit. That's a win.

Not winning today:

  • Woman escapes quarantine in Spain while infected to go to the beach. She also dropped her kid off at school. Way to go, Karen. This is why we can't have nice things
  • Sweden's alleged "success" with the virus cost them

Saturday - Day One!

Finally and at last. One. DAY. With zero nonsense from the Karen Squad, anyone related to the Karen Squad, or anyone within six degrees of anything the Karen Squad might have breathed on.

I still remember when we were within two days of Day Fourteen. All the same, this morning's news. is a relief from all the Day Zeroes that have been happening.

Here's to many more days of no plague.

Yesterday had me all over everywhere. I learned about ReTurn -

There Shall Be Bread

(Music notes) So put your little hand in mine/ there ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb...

It's Day One once over again and public outcry has forced the government to allow farmer's markets to remain open even during a whole lot of plague.

Sing the chorus with me: This is how new outbreaks happen, you ignorant firkin sods.

I swear to the Powers That Be, the world is going to end through the actions of the Wilfully Ignorant. We need

Day 1, once more around again

The three cases yesterday were all from outside. One already in isolation and the other two out on a boat. I don't know if they're staying there, but it's apparently a big boat and a small crew. Huzzah.

...I guess.

However, there's also Melbourne. In Melbourne, now that the numbers are crawling below 500, they seem to think that the plague is over again. This has lead to crowds of shoppers and people casually violating social distancing rules. Which, I am certain
