Plague Diary

A 1253-post collection

Friday, Sydneyside PLNs

As you may well guess, we arrived in Sydney safe and sound. Adorable is off for her morning run and Beloved is keeping her company, so I have some limited time to attempt offerings.

Because today... and TOMORROW... are for the dreaded...


Which means being present and talking to people about stuff that isn't my merry blue boy.

Speaking of such, I'd best get a wriggle on with today's offerings. Sooner done, sooner less to fret about.

Thursday, Packing, Panic, and Pills

I got clothes packed and ready for the trip. I have meds packed for the duration because the whole bottles might put me over the weight limit. I am going to evict a majority of my keys from my bag because won't need them for the interim. And because metal detectors.

I shall be relying on my cloak for warmth and hoping for the best.

I am attempting to do the day's offerings in record time so I can make sure I

Wednesday, No Date Night, so...

Beloved cancelled Date Night because we will be having all those fun activities this Friday, down in Sydney.

So I shall therefore render my offerings and attempt Stencyl stuff as is normal. I am also indulging in a few carbs as is normal.

I will end up indulging in Baldur's Gate 3, which is not as is normal.

Gonna get ONE of my alts to Act 2 if it firkin kills me.

I am in the midst of recording more chapters and

Tuesday, Leyland's Tour and then all the other things

I am helping MeMum with the byzantine Gordian knot that is Queensland firearms license paperwork, today. Which means that I will be largely incommunicado until that is well over with.

Which means that all my usual offerings unto the altar of notes [better known as the internet] will be either late today or not present until tomorrow.

Also going on behind the curtain is yet another one of those "why am I even trying" existential crises based entirely around the blatant fascism

Monday, Foundry Reads, Prepping

I have put some laundry on with an aim towards having clean clothes for the upcoming trip. Oooh look at me being all organised and stuff.

Thanks to plane tickets, the budget is SUPER tight and will remain so for some time. AND I have an upcoming license fee that I near forgot about AND we need more income because everything expensive.

Well. Since I'm waiting on ideas care of Beloved hearing some intervening chapters, I shall have the time to work

Sunday, Game Night and Expenses

I forgot to check my alarms this morning -_- Bleh. Still managed to get a game sesh on for my international peeps.

The cats are now fed, and I am currently watching the Foundry until it's time to my story stream.

The rest of my day is for offerings and other shenanigans. Including working out the schedule for the rainbow crowd game night henceforth.

Whee fun.

I might even have time to fix my "evil" playthrough in BG3. Or I might

Friday, Unfucking, Leyland's Tour, and Sundry Nonsense

Beloved has to get some medical equipment and she's maintaining her passport for assorted techie business. I have a Thing happening this weekend, so there won't be any more streams next weekend.

I will be flat out getting my offerings in order, then. I'm going to put a pause on everything else behind the curtains.

Adorable has more than enough chapters to listen to as is, so I don't need to panic about that part.

Beloved is getting the tix and arranging

Thursday, Roadblock on Progress

I hit another wall in Stencyl today. Paired with another disagreement with Beloved, I was not in a good space, mentally. Neither was Beloved, as we tried to work through what was going wrong.

At least we settled on some ways to move forward henceforth.

I mislike being told I'm dumb for being worried and then being told I was wrong for being justified in those concerns. And then being told that everything I predicted was my fault.

Fingers crossed, that should

Wednesday, Wordpress and Further Shenanigans

Beloved has work, and I have not received any further bulletins as to when I can expect her lovely company. Guess that happens later.

Looking forward to some delicious carbage and delightful company tonight. All going well.

Heck, I might even find out where books 2 and 3 are. Fingers crossed.

I'm still doing all the other offerings, but my schedule may be interrupted with barely a moment's notice. I anticipated this when I sat down to write today's tale. Still on

Tuesday, Patreon and Continuing On

I had myself a little micro-meltdown last night. Chiefly related to the fact that I can't do anything of merit when it rains because everything requires the internet.

I ended up sleeping twice last night. Finishing off chapter 322 in the middle of the night. Literally.

Thank Grop that my lappy lets me edit offline.

I've done my Patreon stuff, posted the Fediverse meme, and am plotting to take further steps towards learning how Stencyl works before sinking my teeth (haha) into

Monday, Tale Foundry and PLNs

The Foundry is together once more to share their sordid little tales. I have three more stories to share than usual, so it promises to be fun.

The QPP and I agree that the TMNT movie is very well done and a refreshing change from the Pixar/Disney smooth bug-eyed model.

One nitpick: why is the main storyline badguy Black-Coded? They gave him a "ghetto" accent and the animators had an excuse to use the dreaded 'mushmouf'

This is also a character

Sunday, Jiggery-pokery, Date Day, and other fun things

If you're reading this, you're probably wondering where the daily tale is[or you're my Mum. Hi, Mum!]. Well. Allow me to show you some weeds that I'm currently facing to explain at least a little bit of that.

  1. The QPP is going to see TMNT today
  2. I have to get ready for that
  3. AND what will probably end up being an entire day of excursion time
  4. I'm already plotting to do as much work "on the run" as possible
  5. Given the

Saturday, Change of PLNs

Adorable has been incapacitated in the wee small hours, so no parkrun this morning. I had to unriddle some banking nonsense before I commenced the horseshit this morrow.

At least the horseshit is sorted for the meanwhile.

Next problem: Having enough money -_-

I gotta do some effort to amend that nonsense. Including finishing the epic tale so I can get on with summarising all my extant novels so I can get them published on a higher scale.

Friday, Unfuckening and PLNs

Parkrun tomorrow, and I need to buy some things online and configure some other things so my money is still accessible in all its varied places.

I would also like Beloved to answer a question I asked, but I might have to ask until we share air.

There's also cleaning the catio, creating The Bikkie [once more, I have no desire to mess about with pseudobread] and otherwise getting on with my routine.

I shall record an episode for Adorable, clean the
