Dear Diary

A 2310-post collection

Wednesday, Wordpress & Date PLNs

I am very tired -_- So tired that I slept until the alarm this morning. The wet weather is getting to me and all I want to do today is Be Blob.

BUT we also need to purchase kitter foods, cream, and probably some other essentials [like our favourite flavour sauces] and that's going to take even more out of me.

I might propose a Grand Day In for date night this evening. Get some ridiculous face masks, order a platter of sushi or two, and then do Home Spa stuff whilst watching ridiculous television. And cuddling. Gotta have them hugs.

It's not like the world outside is particularly fascinating at the moment. It's cold and wet and squishy and some pampering in a nice warm house seems to fit about right for me.

I shall consult.

As for wordpress... head empty, no thoughts, so y'all will get another installment of a Terrible Tiefling Tale. I will not take criticism at this time.

There's been another shooting in the US by a "mad lone wolf" who just co-incidentally quoted Fox News in general and Tucker Carlson in particular. Specifically the spurious replacement narrative that gets the White Is Right mob screeching in terror. Naturally both Fox News and Mr Carlson deny responsibility. And say this is why America Needs More Guns, as well as blaming Biden.

SIGH.

This on top of the kerfuffle surrounding the potential dissolution of Roe V Wade. The one thing that made abortion safe for everyone.

I am so mad at the USA right now. It's like it's on the verge of total collapse, or at least another civil war.

If I want to feel better about my life, I need to not engage with the news. So with that in mind, let's get some fiction going.

Tuesday, Patreon PLNs and New Slab Who Dis?

Miss Chaos had a smol shopping spree and a lovely dinner, last night. She got a game called Are You Dumber Than A Box of Rocks? and a Funko Pop that happened to amuse her. We also got her a Teppenyaki dinner and dessert at a place called Cowch.

If you love sugar, and I mean freaking LUHUV sugar, try getting your fill at Cowch. #NotSponsored.

They are an indulgence.

Today, I shall be posting lots of stuff in lots of tiers.

Long Monday, New Map PLNs

I finished level 8 of 23 and have begun level 9. Yay.

Given that it's a map with actual right angles, I shall heartily enjoy making this one a virtual reality. So to speak.

I'll leave all the trickiest parts for last. Save what there is of my sanity for another day.

That's IF I feel like rising from my bed before the afternoon.

It's a day that I do not expect very much from myself. It's allowed. Thanks to wonky sleep

Sunday, Sleeplessness Sillies

Beloved and I went out anyway. Because Kitten D'amour was releasing new clothes.

Beloved has new business outfit. I have a new witchy outfit. LOL.

I also fell pretty fast asleep after that nonsense and THAT was why I was awake at fuckoff-AM unable to rest at all.

On the plus side, I did get a lot of a chapter written. On the minus side, it wasn't for the book I was trying to write for pro reasons.

Whoops.

I am going

Saturday, Crash'd PLNs

There was going to be an LGBTIPAQ+ social event today, but it was cancelled because flooding. "Yay".

To ameliorate the disappoint, we are having a grand day in. We shall make the luxury hot chocolate and have cupcakes and watch Our Flag Means Death together. Maybe have a spa bath sometime close to the evening.

Just a lazy day at home. Nothing planned. An enjoyable nothing, but nothing nonetheless.

IF we stir from the bedchamber, I might be building more of Level

Friday, Unfuckening PLNs

I'm going to have to swap my boots for wellies just to clean the catio. For my next trick, I shall make a chart of potentially random potions.

All because my crew of chaotic murder hobos planted their Rando Beans and now have a bunch of potion fruits. Because of course they do.

There's TONS of potions you could have.

I have to work out how to randomise them all.

Also in my PLNs is to work on more of level 8,

Thursday, Chambering and Shenanigans

Having company whilst building chambers in TaleSpire is way more productive for the building of said chambers. It's easier to do things with company.

This set of chambers is going to be waterlogged and I need to check and see if the Kobold will drown when the water is where the book says it will be.

It's my universe. I decide who drowns.

Ahem.

Yesterday, my love and I tried to reach a Fish and Chippery called Yabby Road. Alas, it was

Wednesday, Wordpress and Date Night

We're having the second once-in-20-year rain event THIS YEAR and I'm having flashbacks to 2012 when we were having once-a-century rain events every other week.

MeMum's "looking forward" to a reflooding, but fingers crossed the measures she has in place now actually work to keep the water out of her house.

The rain may interfere with Date Night, which has previously involved visiting a fish and chippery called -get this- Yabbie Road.

If they don't have yabbies on their menu, I shall

Tuesday, Patreon and Postage

My meds have gone ackers in the post, and AusPost wants me to wait for next week before I can report it missing. Yay.

I did get on to iHerb about the fuckup, so there's hope that something can be sorted about all this. The big problem is that mailing forms have ONE entry to put the street address in and you can't put the whole thing in the forms.

AND AusPost keeps changing their mind about the important bit -_-

Long Monday, Sleeplessness

We did have a fun day out, if a very long one. This long Monday is made even longer by not having enough of a rest. So my PLNs involve (1) Publishing my tale, and, (2) getting some firkin SLEEP.

D&D was manic. In no particular order, my players: Got drunk, took drugs, slept together, and birthed a Treeant. Check the VODs on my Twitch stream. It's wild.

By this afternoon, we should all be able to enjoy and partake

Sunday, Mother's Day

Today is the last Mother's Day I celebrate for myself. Rennie's Day, as I have just discovered, is the third Sunday of April. Could have been informed sooner, but... meh.

Beloved is taking over the accepting of Coffee Cups, gimcrack jewelry, and macaroni arts with beaming smile and that weird soft feeling one gets when the smols make a thing just for her.

Motherhood is many things, and one of those things is wearing a macaroni necklace like it's diamonds and feeling

Saturday, Sleep Shenanigans

I have a D&D game tonight, and Mother's Day Shenanigans tomorrow. So I'm pulling dumb sleep tricks. Including deliberately missing the streams I normally tune in for because Meatspace Social Stuff.

Tomorrow's stream is happening at 5AM and I will be missing Tale Foundry's fic readings. Which is generally where I get the prompt reveal. When I don't cheat and check the vote in advance.

Except that the vote hasn't happened yet.

I'm nervous now.

BUT I also have starters

Friday, Unfuckening PLNs

The house has got away from us again, so I have PLNs to at least unfuck a small area in betwixt my other nonsenses.

On my Schedule(tm):

  • Catio duty
  • Big 'n' bulky stuff dishwash
  • Populating the level I finally finished building
  • Maybe starting on the NEXT gotdang level
  • And perhaps some other shenanigans besides

I have a new enthusiastic fan and that's a cool thing. Another Rennaisance Bean has found me. They have fingers in a lot of pots just like

Thursday, The Blargles

For the second day in a row, I was up late last night. The only difference betwixt last night and the night before was that I was up late having way too much fun. I am very tired today and something I ingested is disagreeing with me.

Hence, blargles.

Argh blargh I want to curl up and blob, today.

Nevertheless, I should at least try to stay conscious for the day so my sleep isn't messed up for tomorrow.

I may be

Wednesday, Date Nite and Tight Schedule

We have a hair appointment later today, Beloved has beauty treatments, we have social engagements, and we have a date tonight.

It's Beloved's turn to buzz around like a fly in a bottle, today.

As for me, I was up until almost midnight packing meals for later consumption. We're never buying three kilos of salmon again. There's a LOT of salmon meals.

Thank the Powers that I love salmon.

We also wound up with a surplus of kale. Never buying three firkin
