Nonse

A 7-post collection

Thursday Already?

I can deal with that.

I've started taking Magnesium because I have no other explanation as to why I'm constantly out of energy.

Good news (for me) I finally got the Taako's School mysterious package and I already stalled on the first [orange feather] puzzle.

My process:

  1. Listen to all the Stone of Farspeech messages I could find [Did anyone else find Magic Brian's answerphone message inside the box?] and thus get spoiled for the ending.
  2. Realise that the SoF had letters on the "numberpad" and work out the alphabetical transposition.
  3. Get gibberish.
  4. Realise that the first words on one of the encoded sheets are literally the title of the thing.

Today, I'll be working on the Elven and Gnollish "alphabet". Once I'm done with literally everything else.

Fingers crossed, I have the energy by then.

We'll see.

Plns and Nonse

Nonse: I'm still coughing up chunks.

PLN: Go to pharmacy, get meds.

Nonse: The internet is being an arsehole to me today.

PLN: If vitally necessary, use phone data to do my job, add to novel offline.

Which, let's face it, firkin SUCKS. For me. And it firkin sucks for you because it's going to take me more effort to do less.

Tomorrow, the time window begins for the nation's premier phone company to come and inspect our phone line. In preparation

It is way too hot

January is the hottest month of the year in Australia. No argument. Nobody will fight this. Whilst the northern hemisphere enjoys a dusting of snow, winter's chill, and global warming denials, everyone in Aus is gently roasting in one way or another.

We went to see Coco during the heat of the day. The best time to watch a movie in my opinion. Alas, Miss Chaos panicked and got upset during the third act. It's bad. Or it was bad this time

Broken 'flow'

I get used to doing things a certain way. I get up, wee, weigh myself [89.3kilos. The first time I've been below 90 since age 20!], water the garden, rouse the kids, shower, and get on with keeping everyone in line.

Then I do my blog, Instant Story, and any other writing that I want or have to do.

But when things screw that up, it really screws up.

Yesterday, I assumed that I'd done my Instant. Why? Because yesterday was

I have yet another theme song

You can bet money that it's from Steam Powered Giraffe, best band in the world.

Check it out:

Now that you have that song stuck in your head, it's my duty to inform you that you can still pre-order the bound-to-be-amazing albumest album to ever album, Quintessential over at http://www.steampoweredgiraffe.com. Coughcoughshamelessplugcoughcough.

My family and I are off to the outer reaches to do a party for Mayhem, today. Which means I have little time to myself at all this

Preparations...

I'm going to be far from home on Election Day, so Beloved is taking me to fill out my poll nice and early. I will be taking my time telling my governing body exactly where to stuff it.

At least this sort of nonse is down to once every four years. For all the good that will do. It just means one more year of stuffing around before we play the same ballet again.

I've looked up the most sensible parties and

Business is booming!

[/sarcasm]

But I did sell a pair of commission earrings to Beloved for $15. Which will be mine come next payday.

The design is so nice that it might just enter my stock. It's something to consider, certainly. Check 'em out:

[Shown here: Triple-thread earrings with pink sparkly beads and pink hearts]

Apparently, I spend more time on Miss Chaos' hair than I do making bling 9_9 But hair is more complicated, Beloved. I am not crazy for spending time and
