Plague Diary

A 600-post collection

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: two new cases, both imports. There's fourteen total active cases, twelve of them are in hospital. Australia's at 92% first vax, 87% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 86.5% first vax, 76% fully vaxxed.

The new variant, the direct result of first-world countried hoarding vaccinations, is now loose in the first world. Talk about reaping what you sow.

If only we'd done for the plague what we did for fucking smallpox. If only the orange canker sore hadn't decided his ego was more important than literally thousands of lives.

Oh, for a time machine and a baseball bat...

I'm going to have to figure out something for Wordpress. Rant or story segment? Probably rant. I have some ideas stored by.

In the news:

  • People running to Aus because it's (mostly) plague-free, thus bringing plague to Australia
  • Reality TV star dead in car crash
  • Market boffins call for creators of Dogecoin to be jailed. They're mad that it's making money
  • Past Presidents and Prince Andrew named as "takers of green apples" in Maxwell trial
  • Some fuckwit shot three kids in a USA school
  • Australia could be flooded AND on fire this year. Yay for climate change and fuck this
  • China vows to destroy everything in its way
  • Remains found in search for missing campers
  • We need new vaccines to battle Omicron
  • Australia ramps up moves against internet trolls

Story now, rant later. Then I go populate dungeon and faff about.

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: Five new cases, all imports. There's twelve total active cases, seven of those are in hospital. Australia's at 92% first vax, 86.8% fully vaxxed. Queensland's still second-last at 86% first vax, 76% fully vaxxed. It's looking like NSW will be the second to get to that precious >95% status. ACT was first.

I'm posting my bullshit on Patreon today, then working on Dungeon then farting about. Possibly a mix of Koshdelia and Satisfactory.

I'm having some fun with this.

Monday, Day 0, Long Day Ahead

Plague news: Three new cases, all local. There's seven total active cases, four of them are in hospital. Australia's at 92% first vax, 86.7% fully vaxxed. Queensland is still lagging massively behind almost everyone else at 86% first vax, 75.9% fully vaxxed. The only state/territory in last place is still WA.

I have few plns beyond getting some rest and attending the Tale Foundry read. Mondays are my low-stress day now. Mostly because I get all of my stress

Sunday, Day 0, Odd Hours

Plague News: One new case, a local transmission. There's six total active cases, five of those are in hospital. The way things are going, the one new case is going to be hospitalised tomorrow. Australia's at 92% first vax, 86.6% fully vaxxed. Queensland's still in 2nd-last place at 86% first vax and 75.7% fully vaxxed.

I find it weird how Victoria is pushing to open up despite having over a thousand active cases. It's like they just don't care about

Beloved has an eye appointment today, so I'm on my only for fixing the heck out of whatever's gone wrong on MeMum's compy today. Fun.

If I write anything at all besides my Instant today, I count it as a miracle. My left

The ACT is already at maximum capacity. NSW is gaining on that, with Victoria and Tasmania close behind. Next up are South Australia and the Northern Territory... with WA and Qld in last places.

In a few short minutes, I pack up Jolie and head

I have some Wordpress to summon words for and I may go on a bit about how little things can balloon outwards. Bits about what's missing in the module and what I've done to fill in the blanks. And what's happened as a result.

Plague news: No new cases! There's four total active cases and all of them are in hospital. Australia's at 91.5% first vax, 85% fully vaxxed. Queensland's just edging out of being last at getting the jabs, at 84.6% first vax, 73% fully vaxxed.

I have Patreon nonsense to share, the usual story, and shopping to do. There's a lot of rain so when I go out on my adventures, I will be driving carefully.

Miss Chaos missed her bus yesterday,

I have been awake since 10PM the prior evening and I plan to keep going until at least 6PM. Or try to achieve consciousness until that hour. Wish me luck.

If I write anything today, it's a bonus.

In the news:

Beloved got anxious about my waking time. Again. For the third time. And in trying to explain the mechanics, I made her cry. Damnit. There's a reminder system for Saturday and Sunday now

I have:

  • Starters to feed
  • Bikkie to make and consume
  • Dungeon to dress
  • Words to create
  • Beloved to spoil rotten.

It's

I have managed to
