A 7-post collection

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon Due

Six new cases this morning, leaving a total of thirty-eight active cases and all of them are in hospital. Yeeks with beaks, folks. Bunkering too hard to tell the difference between me and a hermit at a glance.

I'm posting my Patreon nonsense today. And I haven't written enough other nonsense to supply my $1 Patreons. I need to complete something real soon now or my Patrons are SOL... And so am I because I can't afford to suspend fees again. Plague did a number on my financials.


In the news:

  • Peter "War on Christmas" Dutton has been hit with criticism regarding comments on the sex assault case
  • AstraZeneca vax now under suspicion of it causing blood clots
  • Cops accused of not investigating Tiger Woods' crash thoroughly enough
  • Prince Charles hurt by things Harry had to say to Oprah
  • Dude test drives a car and crashes it, faces criminal charges on top of losing license
  • 15YO deported to New Zealand, controversy ensues
  • Virus warning to 115 suburbs after plague found in the sewerage of the top end
  • Following the police-made abduction and murder of a UK woman, the UK police crack down on a peaceful vigil protest, controversy ensues. Police allegedly had to act with force because the MASKED protestors stood a risk of spreading plague. This despite the fact that anti-mask protests carry on without any such force in evidence
  • Everyone wants Africa to be a virulent bed of plague outbreaks but they have it handled even when the Knomiras insist on holding superspreader parties
  • China accuses Australia of human rights violations in epic case of the pot calling the kettle black
  • Heat map of bad plague records hightlights every single nation where they don't believe in masks or lockdowns
  • Man has back pain for eight days, learns it's skin cancer
  • Musk sued over share price tweets
  • Big Woolies holding a sale. Stimulate that economy, darn you!

Let's get on with Patreon.

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Two new cases, and the total's stable at eleven. Nothing local, so I'm trying hard to not panic. Not easy. For instance:

  1. I started today at 3AM with a very mild but still detectable cyclone headache
  2. And a good solid dose of the Death Cough(tm) [I'm not dying, I promise. It's just a scary impersonation thereof]
  3. Remembered to bathe at least
  4. Coffee not working, please consult manual

I get the feeling I'm going to CRASH sometime in the afternoon. If not

Tuesday, Day 0, PLNs & possibilities

Two new cases send the total of actives to seven. Dangit. They're from overseas and detected in quarantine, so all is going moderately well. Yay?

I did manage some arts, yesterday, messing around with brush types in ProCreate to create a portrait version of my Tiefling. Because of course I'm going to learn about shading and creating the illusion of life with a guy who's blue.

I am keeping into the habit, which is a good thing. The more I do, the

Tuesday, Day Zero, Patreon Day

Three more cases, all from overseas and detected in quarantine. Sing along with the chorus. Fourteen active cases, fourteen chances for one arsehole. Sigh.

I'm posting my last chapter of KOSBOB on Patreon today... and an awful lot of Terrible Tiefling Tales.

Some are new. I swear I'm trying to work on the things I already started. Promise.

Headlines... Ugh... Let's see what Humanity's been up to since the last check-in:

  • Muppet refusing to give anything to Biden - including adjudication on

I had one of those ideas at 1AM that came to fruition at 3AM and you know that is not going to end well. Details on my Patreon as shenanigans ensue. I've already had one salient question about the nonsense that is about to happen.

I'm going to be having fun. I hope everyone else does too.

Today is Patreon day, and there's at least ONE treat for my Patrons to enjoy. Thanks 1AM. I owe you one praise. You were good

One More Long Weekend

The kids return to schooling this Tuesday. Which means that I have until Monday to get them sleeping during the night again. Not. Easy.

And it's Friday, so that means some nice treat-style foods for dinner. And since I plan to finally get into my promised ice cream, that means a Keto-but-still-a-treat dinner. So... probably cooked chook salad because easy, and quick, and lets me use Saturday for my carb feast.

That's the PLN.

Today, I have a thousand words to do.

Contingency PLN

So. Patreon pulled a genuine Dick Move, charging all the Patrons for their patronage. Some folks can't afford that and it will kill the staple of Patreon income, the One Dollar Donation.

And this will obliterate half of my Patronage. And, currently, drop my income from that down to $9 a month.

Not exactly inspiring, is it? All this work for such little reward.

In other news, this is the last week of writing Rael. A story that covers quite a few
