A 407-post collection

I got this!

I just used some quiet time to record five more stories for Inter-Mission. I shall use the next set of quiet hours to edit an episode. Let's see if I get the spare ready before I post the next episode.

Honestly, with editing and music selection and everything, it takes me roughly four hours to put together a half-hour show. That's pretty slack. I need to know some better techniques or figure out where I can trim some time.

Or, you know, learn how to focus on one thing at a time. Which I don't know how to do and fear I never will.

This week, I shall brave myself up to send Adapting to another potential person who might want it. It's scary. I got five bites at this apple and once I send this off, it's a countdown to me being a zero.

...yeah. I've hinged way too much on this thing being a success.


I did my usual stunt with sequential numbering. Some posts in other places will not have that fixed and frankly, chasing it all down is a pain in my patoochus.

Later archive trawlers will have something to point at and go, "Ah! Ah!" at.

Also in my sucky salad this morn was a nightmare in which the kitties (a) got out and (b) got hit by a neighbours' car. Pippi came home in that dream. Jolie... didn't. Thank the Powers it was

More shenanigans

The day after game night, following a carb feast of epic proportions, we are fixing what is broken in the kitty kondo. In this case, replacing a hinge I cracked with my idiocy, and replacing a sheet of roofing that got wobbled to death by the wind.

That's happening as soon as I get my clothes on.

Today's fiction nonsense will be happening... later. Possibly much, much later.

Because Pippi's former guardian is also planning a family visit. Whee.

Early cleaning == maybe time to go out and get a replacement autohinge because dummins I broke the other one... but potentially not time to install it because Game Nite plus writerly nonsense plus... whatever.

I'm planning on breaking Keto this evening and Madness Burgers are on my menu!

...also potentially a shitton of forbidden fruit, so to speak. All the things that are bad for me but taste SO delicious. I may gain an entire kilo from the feast.

Worth it.

On My Own...

I have a limited amount of plastic lattice mesh. It MIGHT be just enough to put a skin on the airlock frame. If not, it's yet another trip to Bunnings.

With judicious use of aviary clips, I should be able to cover that thing.

After that, the next trouble is putting the door on. By myself. With probably nebulous instructions. Because Beloved is back to work today and doesn't have any more days of in lieu of overtime.

Yeah, I'm certain that

I can do this

Mayhem's school hasn't called, so I am theoretically able to do an errand. Yes, folks, after Chaos is off on her bus, I am loading my car with recycling bags, and turning them in at the depot box at the local bottle-o.

Considering how much soft drink we go through, you'd think they'd pop a few of these things near grocerers. But no, you got to have a drinking problem to get your ten cents per drink container.

Since I'm out doing

Mor Chaos!

Exams are over for Mayhem, which means he's home from school. I've called it in at the office and reminded them that I am ready to haul his arse up there if he still has things undone.

I anticipate a phone call tomorrow.

Today, I shall try to get my Patreon stuff out in time, as well as the usual nonsense and -barring a phone call- attempt to recycle the MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF RECYCLING we have just waiting to cash in.

It's live!

Ellipsis Addiction is now a thing! And so is the first album called This is Awkward.

If just five people buy this thing, I can get my money back. Yay.

Currently in the process of telling the world.

It's Monday, so the continuing nonsense includes house unfuckening, the daily Instant, and the usual allotment of words in KOSBOB. A process made slightly more difficult by the fact that the Special Key on my keyboard seems to have gone bung.

I use that

I had fully-formed plans to go nowhere and do nothing. BUT...

We're out of cream. We're out of cheese wedges. We're almost out of ice cream. We really should restock the seaweed supply. The kittycats need more gooshie foods... and I don't have money for all of it.


Beloved is out on work today and will be having a day off later in the week because Spring Carnival is a bitch.

Tomorrow, luck being with me, I shall go out and

We're back!

Once again, the internet outage was just long enough to be homicidally annoying. I usually give the nice peeps in charge of our interwebs until the next day to get the digits out of their orifii, and it actually works.

Plus, let's face it, I was busy as hell during most of yesterday.

Mayhem is back to school and so is Chaos, so I might just have a time window in which to record some stories and maybe edit some Inter-Mission for

One More Monday

Chaos is back to school today, and she has a SUPER short haircut because my girl believes in doing her own hairdressing -_-

She chopped the back of her head practically bald with a pair of scissors so we had to give her an undercut. Why? She was feeling too hot.

After she's off to school, I have to go run and get moneys for this week. Then it's the continuing chaos of the impending summer weather plus unfucking the house.

We have another game night tonight and I am excited to try some SOLID GOLD BULLSHIT that I've made up for this event. Basically, our crew is stuck without a clue and desperate to find the Macguffin that don't want to be found, so I'm'a try some Divine Inspiration to see if the DM is going to hand us a bone.

I have a whole ritual plotted out including a partial filk of this thing because serious bits should always be peppered

Thursday Again?

At least this time I had enough shit together to get the bins out before the early arrival of the rubbish peeps. Huzzah.

Everything else may literally fall apart but I have that handled. I've GOT this, and my knees are already grateful.

I've done things. I have things to do, and I might just have a handle on them. I got the Instant to get out there, and five hundred to one thousand words in KOSBOB to write... and that's it.

So Steemit is down. For now. Which means I can't earn fractions of a cent per diem that I post. I honestly thought this nonsense would last less than a day. Now I'm stuck with a story in limbo and little in the way of a PLN in order to line up what happens next.

Those of you who know me from my days as and XME fanwriter will know that I have ALWAYS had problems with what happens next.

Monday Again?

My week is off to a fantastic start with Chaos being the one with the Lurgi and Mayhem due back to school. Since he's officially an adult, I won't get on his case until it's about time to leave...

Which makes literally everything else that should be routine today a complication.


On the other hand, there may be time to gather me some Halo Tops because my stash is officially empty.

Also, I binged the entirety of The Dark Crystal: Age
