Friday - Day One - Bread Day

This morning I fell for a troll, fed my starters, and measured out the stuff to make bread with. I have confirmation that the ducks are marching towards a final destination of getting Miss Chaos on the NDIS. I have made The Bikkie and am eating chunks of it as hunger nibbles at me.

I have yet to take my coffee and pills, but all in all, it's not bad for being awake since 3AM. I'll take the positive. The thing I wrote because of the troll is staying up, but I've added a fact check to the end of it all.

::mutters:: stoopid firkin trolls...

There are some things I will never understand, and one of those is the inclination for people to stir trouble just for the notice they get. Wouldn't it be better to get noticed for the good stuff or improving the world? Ah, but stirring shit is easier...

Anyway. I am making bread because the freezer is down to one pre-sliced loaf, which I need to shove to the left so the oldest gets grabbed first.

I have a system, okay?

In the Headlines:

  • Muppet leaks interview with 60 Minutes to highlight the "bias" in the same
  • Rich golfer supports the Muppet, huge shocker 9_9
  • Melania conspicuous by her absence from the Muppet's ongoing campaign, citing a "lingering cough"
  • ScoMo forced to backtrack from saying, "If you're good at your job, you'll get a job"
  • Woman missing for twelve days in a park in the US was found in almost miraculous health, suspicion arises that she may have faked the event for fame and attention
  • Spring weather is looking to get worse as the east coast is expecting the mother of all storms to hit
  • Melbourne man had to hang on to a tiger snake for half an hour until the professionals arrived

I've averaged close to two hundred words a day in KOSBOB this week and should soon be hitting the goal of 120K words. It's going to be a while all the same.

Onwards. I live. I learn. I go on in the way I would like the world to be shaped.

Thursday - Day Zero

One new case found and staying in Quarantine... BUT I stand by my "one arsehole" paranoia.

Today, I shall be recording images of ALL the paperwork related to Miss Chaos and sending them to the case manager. Our scanner is currently out of commission because the one compy it talks to is slowly dying. I'm not sure if we can get it to scan things any more.

Ugh.

Let's look at the headlines:

  • Queensland is building a new north-south highway
  • Muppet cuts

Wednesday - Day Four

I know what I'm doing with Wordpress Wednesday, and it's A Chapter Of... Not just a chapter of an unedited novel I have finished, but a chapter of a thing that I've written before and during the plague. A thing that, though it won't earn me a red cent [because Wizards of the Coast will probably sue me if I try lol], gave me immense joy to read and write in a very stressful time.

I would come back to it again

Tuesday - Day Three

Today's the day of the duck march! This afternoon, Miss Chaos and I are taking a lot of time to fill out a huge form so we can start running the red tape to get Chaos on the NDIS.

I firkin hate red tape.

If I ran the world, it would be: Okay, you need help? Where do you need help? Cool. Let's get that arranged.

Of course paying for all this necessitates getting taxes "best citizen fees" from the super-wealthy, and

Monday - Day 2

So KIABIL was gifted a mud cake and I was gifted a RAINBOW CAKE. We swapped because each much preferred the other. MeMum got to talk her head off. We all got to get some social time which we were all starved for.

Good times.

I also got to see Capt. S's kittens, which have just opened their eyes and are about to become Bumper Car Kittens(tm).

Today, I am completely solo and have the daunting task of attempting to unfuck

Sunday! Day One

Shenanigans are afoot as the family are trekking out to Scenic Coominya. I'm also trucking MeMum there so I had to Very PLN for today.

Part of those PLNs will involve getting some sugar-free caffeine tubes for the trip. Whee.

MeMum is twice as paranoid as I am with this plague. I saw in the news that "covid particles" have been found in the sewer system. Given that this happened up North without an outbreak, I'd posit that this is a potential

Saturday - Day Zero

Two new cases in quarantine, and that's twice as much as yesterday and now I am having a concern. One arsehole... The more cases there are, the more potential there is for a Karen to arise and cause a massive outbreak because restrictions are easing. Ugh.

We almost got there. We almost had freedom within our grasp. We almost had a completely clean Queensland... and then some fuckers had to think they were above the rules. Repeatedly. ARGH.

I'm getting back into

Friday - Day Zero

One more case discovered in quarantined folks coming in from overseas. There's still no community transmission, but... it only takes one arsehole to shit all over everything for everyone.

I've fed my starters and they're a bit on the thick side, so I added cream and coconut milk to the harvests and got some extremely runny batter cooking slowly in the background.

Very slowly, as it happens. Whoopsidoodle. Too much additional liquid.

The cats are not eating all their food, even the

Thursday - Day Four

Beloved will be going to work later today, so I will be recording a more audible version of the tutorial I did on Tuesday. I live, I learn.

Today's brain hack will involve closing the compy room door so that I will be in Recording Mode. We'll see if it works.

With luck, I'll have a video that MeMum can use. Everything explained simply and easily and the why of it as well. I have to make things VERY clear. Obviously.

Extra

Wednesday - Day Three

I woke up at half-past one this morning and more or less forced myself to get back to sleep so now my morning is extra sluggish. I have zero ideas for today's wordpress wednesday, so it's probably going to be another Chapter Of...

I tried to make a tutorial for MeMum to install the search engine to beat Bing and because I was recording in a relatively empty house, my brain went into "everyone is asleep" mode, and I pitched my voice

Tuesday - Day 2

Another round of duck-hunt phone tag is scheduled sometime after 9AM today. I got the ansaphone yesterday and I suspect persistence today will get me past the case manager screening their calls tomorrow. Nothing like being a very nice and polite pain in the butt to get that administrivial assistance you need to get past the hedge of red tape.

In the headlines:

  • It's been revealed that the Muppet wanted to wear and reveal a superman suit/shirt [reports differ] upon his

Monday - Day One

This is the week that I go duck hunting. I'm going to get those little quackers in line for Miss Chaos' admission into the NDIS if it firkin kills me. This, in turn, means a potential week of phone tag with her case manager. Yay.

I spent ALL WEEKEND downloading Baldur's Gate 3, and its associated character creator. I'll be playing with that after I'm done with my shenanigans for today.

Thusly, the PLN is:

  1. Write stuff whilst waiting for 9AM
  2. Once

Sunday - Day Zero

Another one from Overseas, boo. Queensland has been 28 days without community transition and that should mean that we can walk around without masks, but... Whilst we still get incoming from OS, it only takes one dickhead to ruin it for everyone.

As more "travel bubbles" open up between the countries/areas with some firkin SENSE, the pressure rises on the willfully ignorant to gain a modicum of such.

In the headlines:

  • QLD's border policy pisses off plague vectors, but sells well

Saturday -DAY SEVEN!

I may be forced to take my collected spondooly so far and get a new compy with which to work on. Last time's story-writing was interrupted by an unexpected reboot initiated by my extant machine. This is very scary beans for me. I'm hoping it's a one-off event, but this morning's slowness with literally everything is giving me a concern.

Coles had a major FUBAR in all of its computerised systems today, and a direct result of that is that plns to

Friday - Day SIX!

Holy shit, things are going well for Antifa and gender-bending tumblrinas everywhere. Minecraft Steve is part of the Nintendo Conglomerate and people are happy about that. Baldur's Gate 3 is out and I want some of that sweet, sweet character creator :D The Muppet continues to deny he has the plague and insists he's doing very well...

Greece has decided to purge its content of fascists. Facebook has banned QAnon, and some billionaire sex offenders are getting comeuppance.

Come on in, the
