Dear Diary

A 1729-post collection

Monday - Day 1!

No new cases in Queensland yesterday, so today is Day One. Woot? There's still over a week before the Brisbane anti-lockdown protests blow up on us. Meanwhile, Melbourne's having more anti-lockdown protests which is what started their second wave in the first place.

It's like Quiet Minute after school and there's that one kid who won't shut the fuck up.

China's fighting India. China's rattling sabres against Australia and the USA. You know what they say about fighting a war on two fronts. This is not going to end well for anyone.

The power company's shutting us down today, so most of my work will be done on the lappy. At least until Beloved wakes up and we get the generator going.

It'll be a pain in the butt for me, but I'm used to working around pains in my derriere.

Onwards, ever onwards. Story, house unfuckening, and novel nonsense before I enjoy myself with other nonsense.

Sunday (Day Zero once more)

Three new cases all related to known ones. Eight days left for the Brisbane protests to blow up like the ones in Melbourne did. The only hope is that none of those anti-lockdown protestors had been anywhere near a contact site. Especially since a lot of them are hoaxers and therefore would not have been checking where they've been and when.


It was a long stream this morning, but I got another story segment finished in one of my Terrible Tiefling

Saturday (Day Zero)

Two new cases linked to previous ones and already in quarantine. Nine days -thereabouts- until the Brisbane protests blow up on us. It'll be battening down the hatches for sure when and if that happens.


  • China escalates their war footing with India
  • Some dudebro used the Covid-19 app to text a girl. The only way this could have been worse was if he opened with a dick pic
  • Quarantine clusterfucks continue as one family is living in an airport in some

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

Wednesday - Day Zero Butt

It's Day Zero again, but... the difference is that the one new case in Queensland is from overseas and already doing quarantine.


  • The pregnant woman who organised an anti-lockdown protest and was arrested for it now expects an apology from the Victorian Premier. I hope it goes, "I'm sorry you're that f*cking stupid," to be honest
  • Because there's still literally over a hundred new cases in Victoria on the daily. I know I said they celebrated going under twenty at

Tuesday Day Zero Again and Again and Again

Two more cases and thirteen days until an outbreak linked directly to the anti-lockdown protests in Brisbane. Did people learn nothing from firkin Victoria?


People are comparing the lockdown and virus restrictions to North Korea and they obviously don't know shit. I want to smack them. Or throw them to the USA where they're not doing anything and medical attention costs like unto a wounded buffalo. See how happy they are with things then.

The plague has been spreading in a

Monday, Day Zero again

Two more cases related to known ones. Blargh. Meanwhile, anti-lockdown protesters in Brisbane are trying so very hard to get more lockdown. Way to go, people. The reason you think the plague is a hoax is because you were protected by the firkin lockdown. Gah.

Around and around and around and around...

Vaccine talk is increasing globally and it's plausible that, in a few short months, the anti-vaxxers will be the biggest problem in stopping the plague.

I still say Hoaxers should

Sunday, and another Day Zero (sigh)

Honestly, I'm making note of what day it is to help me keep track. The groundhoggening is real, folks. I had a glorious slug day yesterday and I now have a crick in my neck from Gamer Lean.

Today's case is related to a known one. Yay?

You know that old console thing where you'd shift your body or tilt the controller to influence your performance on the screen? That. Only apparently I get right up to my monitor and tilt my

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 -

Shenanigans! (Day Zero)

There's outbreaks in North Queensland linked to sewerage somehow. I'm vaguing on the details but there's also a beach? I don't know if it's related, so don't go connecting any dots.

We've had a firkin WEEK of Day Zeroes and it's honestly shitting me off. There's like five different articles calling for all of Australia to "finish the job" and I bet that's going to involve locking up all the firkin Karen Squad.

So far:

  • It's a Student-Free day for Chaos
  • Mayhem

Thursday, Further Shenanigans, and Whoops No Ducks (Also Day Zero)

I'd ask what else could go wrong, but I know what happens to people who say blatantly silly things like that.

Long story short, the ducks I thought were ready to march are still lost in the pond. I will chase them down when I find some of that elusive free time. Today's shenanigans include finally changing the batteries in my car so Mayhem can get some driving in during the nonsense this arvo. Yay.

There's two more cases and they're all

So Here's Teh PLN... (Day Zero)

Two new cases closely linked with a school (institution) and a hospital (also institution). Then there's that muggins from Victoria who got bagged by border control in Brisbane airport. Thanks, arsehat. Now an entire plane of people have to put their plans and lives on hold because you had to be an entitled git.

Onwards with Teh PLN because some of this nonse can't wait for one arsehat. I made myself a busy day. Just look at this:

  • Instant story
  • 100 words

Tuesday and still day zero

Only one new case today and no news to find about where it is. My bet is Wacol. If not Wacol, then some institution where the protocols are sacrificed for cost-cutting.

Today, I shall offer up things I've written to my Patrons, and do my Instant as usual. There's also a minimum of a hundred words in KOSBOB that I'll do during Bus O'Clock.

Good news - I've returned to making those masks.
Bad news - I burned my finger in the

Monday - Day Zero, the Groundhoggening

Four more cases from Wacol. Again. There is definitely a pattern. Meat processing and institutions are hotbeds of infection.

New Zealand is emerging from their second wave lockdown and will now have to be on alert for the third. As long as the plague rages somewhere, places with sense will have to be firkin paranoid.

China now has a 'carrier killer' and the sabre rattling between them and the US intensifies.

One of the covidiots who went ackers from quarantine will become

Sunday! (Day Zero)

Four new cases, all linked to previous ones already found. No sign of Patient X as far as I know. Which makes the planned get-together later today potentially "interesting"...

None of us have been anywhere near the infected zones, but there's still Patient X. The unknown, infectious, potentially asymptomatic person who came into contact with the Melbourne Shoplifters, and is now roaming around random places and causing outbreaks in surprise locations.

Calling it now, they're a maskhole Karen for sure.

I have
