A 719-post collection

Thursday, Day 0, Finagling

Plague news: One new case, a local transmission. Twenty-three total active cases, thirteen of those are in hospital. I've had my second jab and my arm is very sore and my head is slightly floaty. Australia's at 73% firxt vax, 48% fully vaxed. QLD's at 43% fully vaxed - and ME!

I will immediately be lying down with fluids after this part of my workday is done. Chicken soup, drinkies to suit my palette, and a lot of rest.

Sometime later today, I may arrange for things to occur in the financial department, but I doubt.

In the news:

  • BF of victim Gabby Petito sent a message online asking people not to try finding him
  • Iron ore slings back into moneymaking territory
  • Netflix buys Roald Dahl Story Co
  • Melbourne got an earthquake
  • Extremists are grooming the tradies oh dear
  • Woolies stick pamphlets in their dividers, surprising some
  • Museum staff share creepiest things in their collections, and it is awesome
  • Old host of America's Most Wanted goes off about the Gabby Petito case
  • ICU worker in NSW shares that hubby sleeps in a tent outside until she gets her vax
  • Best and Less about to ban unvaxxed customers

And now it's story time.

Monday, Day 1, School Hols

Plague news: No new cases. Twenty-seven total active cases, nineteen in hospital, and none in the ICU any more. Yay?

We finally have the stuff to turn my hair Really Blue and we're going to. But to really begin I'm going to get a broom and round up the nonsense all over the floor. We need to tidy.

Beloved has been a whirlwind and I should firkin help out. Now that I can.

  • Body found in the Wyoming leads

Saturday, Day 0, Catching Up

Plague news: The one new case is a local transmission. There's thirty-three total active cases, twenty one are in hospital and one's in the ICU.

Beloved and I are plotting to unfuck the house today because other business interfered with yesterday's unfuckening. We're also plotting to re-blue my hair and do it right this time.

But first, apparently, we are enjoying a spa bath.

In the news:

  • Mother kills her three daughters
  • Aussie presenter put on the spot about who saw his

Thursday, Day 0, Recovery PLN

Plague news: One new case, an import. Twenty-nine total active cases with nineteen in hospital, and one in the ICU.

I'm still getting over the Lurgi, so my PLNs don't go much further than soup and Shandy and a lot of rest. I have about 200 words to go in my novel's words today so I'm fairly confident about my ability to get that done.

I may even start catching up with The Adventure Zone. I can hope.

Meanwhile, there's some news:

Saturday, Day 0, PLNs?

Plague News: One new case, an import. According to our Premiere, we have one local that's being investigated. There's twenty-one total active cases, of which nineteen are in hospital.

Beloved's getting her piercings checked today and I am bodyguard. Yay. I'm getting paid in sushi tonight so I'm happy.

My other plans include: nothing, and enjoying that. I will not fret about making output for the interwebs, just in PURE SLOTH. Nyahah. Sloth and carbs.

In the news:

  • Health officer utters the

Sunday, Day 0, Day of Rest?

Plague news: Two new cases, one of each. Twenty total cases, fifteen in hospital.

There's potential for another lockdown in the wind, so I'm keeping an eye out for alerts regarding the same. We have nonsense to see us safely through whatever it is, so no panic buying for us.

Today, I will indulge myself a little bit on leftover cake, continue adding stats to mobs on the boards I've made. If I'm brave, I shall go on to do Stage One

Saturday, Day 1, Editing HOOOOO!

Plague news: No new cases! There's eighteen total active cases in Queensland and fifteen of them are in hospital.

They can yell about our border control, but we stepped on Delta and they didn't. So ner.

I have PLNs today to polish the entirety of Chapter One of Adapting. In fits and starts, belike, but I will get all the edits seen to. I also plot to eat a lot of carbs as a reward.

In the news:

  • Israel hit with a

Monday, Day 0, New Order of Things

Plague News: One new case, a local transmission. Possibly via the yahoos down south. At least it's caught in quarantine. Twenty-six total active cases, with twenty-three in hospital.

We don't have cleaners helping us any more. Can't afford it. So today, we are unfucking the house on our own. My personal goal is to unclutter my desk and to get rid of the old defunct iMac taking up acreage there.

But first, I have to see Miss Chaos off to school. I

Sunday, Day 0, Day Out

Plague news: Four new cases, all imports. We have twenty-six total active cases, with twenty-one in hospital and nobody in the ICU.

Some idiot had the audacity to state that lockdowns "don't work" when the places that do have lockdowns and strict measures don't have the fucking plague. Yikes. Just do what New Zealand does and nobody needs to get hurt.

I've also come across testimonials from medical professionals working in the Covid wards and... it'll break your heart. Read the post

Saturday, Day 0, Doors

Plague news: One new case, an import. Thirty total cases, twenty-four in hospital and two in the ICU.

Today, we have discovered that the new doorknobs fit the old doors perfectly. SO... we have to take down the new door we hung last week, put back the old door, and then install the new doorknob. Yay.


I also have to find and upload my OBS recording of my stream since OBS cut the extant one short. Dangit. Shitty internet sucks bollocks.

Monday, Day 1, Moving Along

Plague news: No new cases! Thirty-nine total active cases, eighteen in hospital, and one in the ICU.

Capt S. has demanded more time with us in return for her not spouting a bunch of TERF talking points in our direction. IDK how to feel about that, but it's another Saturday not spent catching up on missing output or making gains on any other project in progress. OTOH we did kind of spend the entire visit talking with an Aunt about it on

Friday, Day 1, Gearing Up

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! Seventy-nine total active cases, with twenty-one in hospital and one in the ICU.

Anxiety is at a peak here in the household as today we PLN to get some final gussying-up before we drop the big reveal tomorrow. That will be happening after household unfuckening and maybe after Chaos returns from school.

I'm still being gentle with myself until all reasons to be panicking are dealt with. One way or another. Stress is hell on inspiration.

Thursday, Day 0, Catching up?

Plague news: Four new cases, all imports. There's Ninety-seven total active cases, twenty-five in hospital and one in the ICU.

Today's PLN includes working on my book, working on a board, trying to tag at least half of a month for my app, and then late night shopping for nice gear with Beloved.

I want a holiday from all the recent running around. Not happening yet. Gah.

My fault for being a hermit.

Sunday, Day 0, Door Day

Plague news: Seven new cases - six local, one import. One hundred and sixty-five total cases, forty-one in hospital and one in the ICU.

We have one door painted and ready for the rest of the nonsense. Which is waiting on my personal energies. Which is not a thing on Sundays -_-

Beloved has made the unwise decision to keep my hours with me. I may never know why they decided this, but it's their bad decision to make.

I am

Thursday, Day 0, Energy Rationing

Plague news: Nineteen new cases, seventeen local, two imports. One HUNDRED total active cases, fifty-nine of those are in hospital and one's in the ICU.

I don't have much in the way of output expected today. No Patreon, no Wordpress. Therefore, there's a chance I can write a bit more in my novel than I've been able to manage of late.

Still planning to be kind to myself. No pressure. Just go wherever the muse leads me. But first, reading my new
