Disorganised Today - Datorganised Tomorrow

A 26-post collection

Getting Re-organised

I've probably caught up with everything. I have this last year's worth of Instants collated into the anthology and all I have to do yet is adjust the cover and transform it into the right kind of document and then link all the footnotes.

Which means upgrading some important software so that I can actually do the footnotes without having to transport my document to another computer and fart around there.

"All". Yeah. Things get complicated when I set out to do simple tasks.

We also need Ashwagandha and a fresh calendar for this year, and that is just plain easier to do than figuring out the other shiznit. So... the instant I'm done with my story, I'm off on some adventures to just go pick up a few things.

I also just realised we'll need cream, too.

Fun times ahead and I'm already late with the Instant for today. But that's because I have sheer HOURS of footage for Oh My Mods. Whee.

Last Day!

It's the penultimate day before I take the long-arse journey back home. Richer for experience and poorer for cash [eh. Whaddayagunnado] but definitely a happier person for all the experiences.

I now know how to pan for gold. Got bupkiss but the experience, but I know how to do it. The trick is not spending a fortune in the chase for the mother-load. That ship done sailed more than a century ago.

The PLN, such as it is, is to be certain

So Here's the PLN

I got myself a long day tomorrow and I can't let most of it get absorbed in YouTube or any such nonse so for today:

1) Do the bloggity stuff for today
2) Do the Instant for this morning and all that associated nonsense
3) Pop out and pick up some sugarfree Fishermans' Friends so I'm completely prepped for a long-arse drive
4) Write tomorrow's Instant
5) Pack somewhere between 3 and 4
6) THEN worry about the rest of my day.

Air con at last!

I'm gonna have to change my Ko-fi goal.

That's happening soon. For now, I really should focus on doing my work, but a reader question crossed my path and I'm doing EXTENSIVE descriptions because headcannons are hard to communicate with words alone and your drawings take firkin days.

Today's story may be late because I'm writing a firkin novella in tumblr about my headcanons.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Today's Gonna Get Complicated

Because of the public holiday, my usual cleaning day has moved to today. Which means I have less time for my usual array of combo procrastinating and farting about.

So, alongside the normal Patreon posts today, I also have unfuckening my house to deal with. Also the usual five hundred words and Instant Story and attempting to get the heck back into fluff and cuddles with Free Katz...

I woke up at 3AM again [early night] and proceeded to procrastinate until 6.

It's official

Spring has sprung, my dear readers. The weather is warming to the point where I don't need my fluffy hat to prevent my sneezing myself into oblivion.

Yay?

On the other hand, it's moving into Summer and I've done exactly jack and shit on the Sleep Evil Sleep Project.

Biggest hurdle - getting an accurate 'read' on where I left the animation so that I can get back on and sync the next bit. I did have a program that could play

That's my schedule shot...

This morrow, early in the morning, both my Beloved and Mayhem had to scoot towards their workday. I had to drive Mayhem to the train station because Beloved lacked the time because Spring Carnival steals their days from now until just past November.

Mayhem doesn't think he needs to learn to drive -__-

It's easier now than it was a mere few decades ago. Like, you can get food delivered and such, but... living independently without a car? You gotta get

Dat Organised? Am I?

This morning, I woke up at roughly half-past three AM [I had an early evening] and gave up on sleeping at 4. Instead of my usual procrastination, I pulled up my laptop and had a good old rant about Autism tropes over on my Wordpress.

Now that I'm here for my daily blogging, I'm back in the distractions but... eh. Whatever. I have one less thing to forget, so that's good.

You watch. I'll forget I posted it and do a twofer

Sdrawckab!

Once again, I got my approach to organisation catty-corner, and did NOT focus on telling y'all about my alleged life before getting rolling on today's Instant.

Which, by the way, tips more than a hat-rack at The Adventure Zone. Spoilers if you haven't listened through.

Listen through, btw. It's full of dick jokes and cussing, but it's funny as hell and you WILL cry. It's one hell of a ride.

Ahem.

Today's plans involve pickling more strawberries and teaching my Beloved to

Self Discipline is...

Self discipline is doing the thing even when you don't want to.

Self discipline is turning off Discord so I'm not distracted as much.

Self discipline is setting my other browser windows to less interesting content so I don't wind up scrolling through shitposts all day.

Self discipline is allowing myself to have a small treat when I'm done with my work. Or it would be, if my dear little darlings hadn't left me with nothing but my Beloved's liquorice to snack

Making Time

So much can occupy a mind. In my case, The Adventure Zone, Mumbo Jumbo, and a bunch of like-minded nerds on Discord.

They ate my morning.

I have ten minutes or less to do this, post something, and get my kids pointed in the correct direction for school. Huzzah.

And the Ekka Flu this year is (a) looking like a digestive bug and (b) attacking my insides. Fun times for your local 'Nutter.

I still have to do my Wordpress Wednesday, too.

I Hate Ekka Week

Turns out the Wednesday I thought we all had off is only applicable to Beloved because Ekka Week Be Fucked Up. Ugh.

And I suspect I keep forgetting this lesson every goddamn year.

My brain is like a sieve, dear readers. And things like "Day off" get stuck when knowledge like "not a day off" just fall through the gaps.

Sigh.

I should just focus on writing stories. I know where I am with those.

Ekka Week

It's the most... fuck'd up-ish tiiiiimmmme of the yeeaaarrrr...

Monday: Chaos stays home and Mayhem goes to school
Tuesday: Mayhem stays home and Chaos goes to school
Wednesday: Public holiday for Queenslanders. Everyone stays home
Thursday: Everybody back to what passes for the normal schedule
Friday: Mayhem off to his new Traineeship workplace. Huzzah

And then next week, everyone comes down with the Ekka Flu. Yay.

It happens with every big gathering of like-minded weirdoes. People go even when they're feeling crummy

Dilly Dally

So I managed to dawdle away ONE AND A HALF HOURS this morning. I don't even know how it happened. I'm that firkin dumminz'd today.

I lie. I have my suspicions of how I did it:

  • "Just checking" on the Factorio world that my love and I are fooling around with [gotta research them all!]
  • "Just one more" video with edutainment value on YouTube
  • "Just one" little check of my favourite tags on Tumblr

You can 'just' your entire day away with

Distracted, Disorganised, Disgusted

Distracted: The Adventure Zone graphic novel has dropped, and people are sharing all kinds of shiny shit.

Disorganised: Since I'd rather look at those shiny things, I am not on my A-game. At least I posted the first Blast already.

Disgusted: Miss Chaos didn't want to be awake this AM, and decided to curl up and sleep ON THE TOILET FLOOR. Save that shit for eighteen, miss.

I gave her a rude awakening and I sincerely hope it sticks, this time. One
