Wore My Grubs

I have been rattlecanning in the pale light of the dawn, with ominous, dark, thick clouds threatening rain.

Nice thing about putting a thin coat of primer on things is that one coat is dry before you've finished futzing about with the camera to take photos. So I got all my layers done and documented the progress for my peeps on Patreon next week. Woot.

I shall be further futzing about with base colours later on today. Energy pending. My practice dude currently has a bit of paper tape over his head so he looks a bit like a political prisoner at the moment. Later on, I'll be working on the actual colours to go on and documenting that.

For those of you following the Car Saga(tm), I haven't received any news beyond "we're trying to figure it out". So that's that part of my nonsense.

But first, I owe all of y'all some content.

Story first, shenanigans second.

Faaaaaarrrrkkk...

So here's the situation:

  • Car's in the repair shop. Again
  • They have managed to duplicate the big problem [suspected misfiring]
  • BUT they still don't know what is causing it

Trust me to get a new engine and have it turn out to be a lemon.

So my car is in limbo once more as the techie people unriddle what the actual fuck... My Beloved has had a birthday and some SINFUL amounts of carbs to go with. There is a pavlova in

Now What?

So. Mayhem is officially off school and deciding his own life. Fun. I now only need concern myself about Chaos' schedule and schooling... as well as my own nonsense. Nonsense that now includes learning how to do and paint minis. Whee.

I should be back on my bullshit regular novel-writing schedule this week, and the goal is either 57K (most likely) or 60K - officially halfway, but extremely unlikely.

So this day is a cleaning day, with my freshly-desexed kitty free of

Late Start

I had fun at Toasty's stream and got to see some wonderful art happen. Now there's a vid-of-progress up on her Patreon and life is good because there is potential to share.

I managed to get halfway along on Episode 17 of Inter-Mission and as a bonus, some kind soul has listened to every episode. Huzzah. I have one confirmed listener.

One is where it starts, friends. Dear listener - please spread the word if you like my podcast. Even if you

Ow...

Yesterday was bloody exhausting. So much so that I conked out and wound up being awake at one in the morning... writing self-indulgent claptrap.

I wrote so much that I hurt my wrist.

Fucking whoops.

I also have D&D tonight. So I'm in for a long-ass day. A day that includes taking Mayhem to a pre-formal so he can schmooze and show off for one last time with his schoolmates.

At least I don't have to drag his arse to

Run the Fuck Out

Ok, so here's the situation. I got a son to deliver to graduation, a kitty to deliver for her hysterectomy, a child to deliver to her bus, and said graduation to attend.

Story is going to be hella late.

I can try to get stuff done, but I can't make promises.

I did wake up earlier this morning, but I dove into temptation and spent my energy on some self-indulgent claptrap that may never see the light of day.

...check my Patreon

OK. Here we go.

My schedule this morning is looking like this:

  • Do blog
  • Do as much Patreon stuff as I can, including a backlog of stories
  • Brat run
  • Come home and find Jolie
  • Imprison Jolie in cat carrier
  • Take Jolie to get jabs
  • Bring her back home
  • Release the feline (and be unforgiven for the remains of the day)

So today's tale may be a smidge late. Or more than a smidge. And I may not have the wherewithal to do a flash fanfiction, so

Second Chaos Week

I have another week of disrupted schedules, running around for stuff, and generally being a disorganised loon.

I have a cat getting vaccinations. I have a cat getting desexed. Different cats. I have Mayhem's graduation plus hauling him to a job interview. I have the regular shuffle of Cleaning Days and the chaos of Whatever Is Happening To My Car.

Like, I should be finding out what's going on with my vehicle this week. I hope. If not, I'll have to ring

Saturday!

My love still has to go to work on a weekend, and the Queensland Summers are making it nigh impossible to keep the cats out of doors in the daylight. Cleaning Day just got 1000% more interesting because cats.

Today is interesting because I'm planning a game day with DFATW. I need to get my story done or it'll never get done.

Let's get on with it.

Interesting Day

There's an apocryphal curse, May You Live in Interesting Times. It's been an interesting day already.

Starting with:

  • Beloved home from work on a day off
  • Mayhem home from school because exams
  • Cleaning day
  • Jolie figured out how to escape exile in the Catio
  • Chaos and I had to chase her and chuck her out again

I've also learned that I need to launch in order to build anything in Roll20, so... I might not be building anything in Roll20... yet. I'll

Shenanigans Wahey!

So. I think I have a rough handle on Roll20. I shall attempt map-making anon. What I really need to know is how to undo something I don't like. I shall be experimenting as I familiarise myself with the tools there.

I really want to make a campaign for D&D.

I also want to finish some fanfics and today is looking to be the day. Mayhem apparently doesn't have to be anywhere, so I shouldn't have to go very far

Exam Shenanigans

Mayhem is entering the exam block, so the schedule is wonky. Not fun for the schedule, since today is also Cleaning Day.

I am taking it easy on my novel-writing this week because I know my schedule is going to be wrecked. Plus Mayhem wants to make me help him build dungeons for his friends.

I'm still doing the Instant, and any fiction prompts I have in my inbox... I'm just... taking my ease with the word count. Therefore, giving me space

Dee un Dee! Dee un Dee!

It's D&D night and I am planning to at least combat the excess of the evening with the abstinence during the day. I shall be a good little nugget and expand my fasting window so I can gorge -as I inevitably do- when the game is on.

My Beloved is taking this old car of mine as a lost cause. Even if the motor is cheaply fixable, it's not worth keeping around. So... in perfect logic, they went and ordered

Silence There

I haven't heard anything back from the car repair people, so I shall assume they discovered that they were the ones who fucked up and are now sweating cobs about how to handle this news.

I can hope for schadenfreude and not be evil, right?

Well, small sins aside, I took a sanity break from ficcing yesterday, and I fully expect my daughter-across-the-water to be slightly peeved about that. She needs her ficcy fix and I was unable to provide.

I needed

Shenanigans!

So I'm visiting my Shrink today, and I have a revelation to remember...

My temporal challenged state is actually a comorb of Autism! It makes immense amounts of sense and can plausibly be used to construct Autism diagnoses for other adults who struggle for one because reasons.

I just gotta remember that S. I sent myself a message, so we'll see how that goes.

Speaking of how that goes, I am going to be writing my Instant and novel on my lappy
