Day Zero

A 295-post collection

Saturday, Day 0, Shenanigans

Plague news: Three new cases??? Again??? There's twelve total active cases, nine of them are in hospital. For a moment, I thought the information was looping from yesterday. Australia's at 89% first vax, 79.6% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 79% first vax, 66% fully vaxxed. We're getting there.

Time zones are promising to make my weekends "interesting". I have to start D&D an hour earlier so my story hour on Monday mornings is happening at 4AM because FUCK going to sleep for two hours, I just can't. Better that I spend an hour prepping the next stream and organising some shit than trying to sleep.

I shall sleep after the stream and story post and rearrange my life after that ball of nonsense. Odds are, I'll actually be tired by then. If not, there's always HTP-5.

Life is weird over here.

In the news:

  • Australia told to butt out of Cleo Smith's life, half of Australia mad about it
  • Bill Gates says plague situation only the beginning. Well, get on top of it, moneybags
  • Unvaxxed sports star goes on a rant after testing positive to the plague. He's still antivax, the idiot
  • Cleo's 'alleged' abductor moved to high-security prison, media going nuts about his doll collection
  • Greta Thunberg justifiably angry at world leaders for collectively sticking their thumbs up their butts
  • New plague surges could lead to more plague deaths says WHO
  • Stalker used dating apps to find victims
  • Some fuckwit shot up a beach at Cancun
  • Recruitment crisis leads to higher wages
  • Political stunts backfire
  • Pfizer has a Plague Pill, in that they have a pill to help beat the plague. In conjunction with a HIV medication
  • New plague hotspot in the Northern Territory
  • Tasmania and Victoria get to see Aurora Australis

And now I go to TaleSpire and add all the sidekicks to the voids in all the unplayed boards because player attendance failure is happening again.

At least the RP opportunities give me more time to build the next campaigns' boards.

I'm up to plotting a RIVER, just in case anyone's interested. I'd really love it if TaleSpire let us have different water zones...

Friday, Day 0, Shenanigans!

Plague news: Three new cases, all local transmission. Dangit. We were doing so well... Australia's at 88.9% first vax, 79% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 78.8% first vax, 65.8% fully vaxxed.

At least I have access to stats again. Sigh.

It's looking like the new Ashwagandha is working, so now I'm going to purchase half a dozen more bottles and hoping that THIS lot isn't discontinued also.

I have Starters to feed, and when I run out of flour, I'm

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: one new case, an import. There's thirteen total active cases, eleven of those are in hospital. Australia's at 88% first vax, 77.5% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 77.8% first vax, 64% fully vaxxed.

I have Patreon stuff to post. Since I've finished KOSTSS, I'll be filtering the chapters down to the $1 tier AND posting the final chapters to the upper tier.

The plan for today matches yesterday. To the tune of Pick a Little from The Music Man

I have starters to feed, bikkie to eat, possibly a Catio to fix... it's a holiday, so Chaos is staying home for a long weekend.

I don't have to clean the Catio because my little furmonsters haven't been in there for the entire week.

Today, I will be doing a lot of unriddling with an aim to become a reporting streamer for Game of Tomes. All going well, I should be able to do all of the things necessary. Fingers crossed.

If it goes badly, I might be building wibbly

Sunday, Day 1, On Schedule!

Plague news: no new cases! There's twenty-six total active cases, seventeen are in hospital, and the one person who was in the ICU got out. Australia's at 86% first vax, 72.5% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 74.6% first vax, 60% fully vaxxed.

NSW and Victoria are starting to use the Vaccine Passports. MeMum has hers. I need to get rattling to make certain Chaos has hers and Mayhem has his. The former involves a lot of paperwork. Ugh.

Beloved had trouble

Plague news: Five new cases, all imports. Twenty-eight total active cases, fourteen are in hospital, with one in the ICU. Australia's at 86% first vax, 71.7% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 74% first vax, and 59% fully vaxxed.

The country is opening up whether we're ready or not. This is sure to end badly but nobody cares any more. Everyone is a million percent DONE with this plague and anti-plague measures and it's just... whatever. Let's get business rolling again.

Friday, Day 0, Mor PLNs

Plague news: FIVE new cases, one local and four imports. Damnit. Australia's at 85.*% first vax, 70.8% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 73.7% first vax, 58.7% fully vaxxed. We're getting there.

I shall be keeping an eye out on that local case thing. According to MeMum, it was an unvaxxed, infected Knomira who skated through on the Gold Coast. Fun.

Mayhem is suffering side-effects from the second jab. We're doing palliative care and keeping an eye on him. So far,

Thursday, Day 0, Plots & PLNs

Today, I shall fiddle with my finances and find a continuing adventure for my Murder Hobos. They're considering the name, The Chaotikids and Palladad. Which has a sort of Saturday Morning Hanna-Barbera cartoon vibe to it. I like it.

BUT I shall also be

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

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.

All signs pointing towards Miss Chaos bouncing back like a freaking Superball. She's enjoying a day off. I will be checking on Mayhem later in the day.

There's

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

One more, this coming Tuesday. I shall be hauling Miss Chaos off to get her second jab that afternoon and keeping an eye on her for the following 24 hours.

My PLN today goeth thusly:
