Tuesday, Day 0, Extension Lockdown

Plague news: Lockdown's extended until Sunday. Fifteen new cases: thirteen local, two imports. Sixty-six active cases, thirty-eight are in hospital and one in the ICU.

There's a new variant out there. It's called Lambda and it's even deadlier than Delta.

In unrelated news, I have just now heard that there are people in the USA who deny that the plague was ever real. Dude. We're still swimming in it.

Being kind to me is working. I reached quota yesterday, but I didn't get about to tagging any fiction for the app.

In the news:

  • China slams Australia for lockdowns
  • Obama slammed for holding a public gathering
  • Olympics
  • Kathy Griffin has lung cancer
  • There could be a vaccine rebate? $300 for taking a jab. Now they're bribing us
  • China's billionaire is now missing
  • Sunscreen had a cancerous pathogen in it. Yay
  • Turkey's on fire
  • List of Australian didjano's
  • Zero Waste Coles unveiled in Melbourne
  • US expat confused by Aussie schoolyard slang

Enough of this nonsense. More of the other nonsense.

Monday, Day 0, Lockdown(cont'd)

Plague news: Nine new cases, all local transmissions. Fifty-three total cases, thirty-four are in hospital, with one of those in the ICU. I honestly don't know how staying indoors for three days total is going to help, but it's masks on outside the home bubble once more.

One of my loafs turned out extra crispy because this idiot forgot to turn the temperature down for the browning part of the equation. The good news is that the extra ten minutes to rise

Sunday, Day 0, Lockdown Unyay

Plague news: Delta's in Queensland. We're in a three-day lockdown which may extend depending on the behaviour of the Knomiras. Seven new cases, six local, one import. Forty-six total active cases, twenty-nine in hospital and one in the ICU

Monday and Tuesday are hermitting days. I don't know what's happening vis-a-vis house unfuckening. We shall see.

I will probably insist on masks back on -_-

The news of lockdown hit me yesterday, after Beloved dragged me from the house to secure

Tuesday, Day 0, Locked Down

Brisbane, and perhaps the greater portion of Southeast Queensland, has been locked down for three days. I got this news in the afternoon of yesterday. Ten new cases this morning, four of them local. Seventy-three total active cases, sixty-three in hospital, and two in the ICU. That means eight people are stuck in a well-furnished box and bingeing Netflix or whatever.

I... am trying my hardest not to spiral into my previous lockdown mood, which was huddling in the bedroom and seeking

Saturday, Day Zero, Hiding a lot

Queensland is now in mega lockdown for three days. There's nine new cases, all apparently from overseas and caught in quarantine. There's twenty-three total active cases and... yeah... not going very far from home because of that.

Fun times.

It's four in the morning and I have been awake since the late hours of the evening previous, so I'm going to take a nap and then get on with today's tale.

The Muppet's rolled over and pleaded for his minions to go
