Monday, Day 0, Mor Bread

Mayhem is in the process of learning the process of bread. There's one case this morning from overseas, and the case count is up to twenty-five. Twenty-five potential moonmelon viral terrorists escaping because they feel fine and blablabla.

There's the UK strain, the Russian strain, the Californian strain. Honestly, I'm shocked that there isn't a Victoria strain, the way the entitled dipshits down there keep carrying on.

Today I have the house unfuckening, further progress on my novel, and the usual daily tale.

In the news:

  • Queen snipes at Harry and Meghan during a public address
  • CCTV captures woman's grizzly death by crushing
  • Sydney Mardi Gras is still wild
  • Reno adds 1.5mil to sale price
  • Nicholas Cage marries a woman half his age
  • Experts say our shop layouts are terrible

I am now going to try and commit fiction.

Monday, Day 1, Adjustment Time

The case count's down to eleven and I am once again waiting for it to dwindle down towards five. Please.

I'm back on my usual writing nonsense but also growing resilience when seated in the kneeling chair. I'm getting there.

Also, it's cleaning day today.

In the news:

  • New sex assault letter penned by friends of a victim surfaces. Looks like ScoMo's in trouble for the company he keeps
  • 1980's assault claim won't gain justice because it's aged out of being a

Thursday, Day 2, Getting on with it

Active cases still hang at seven. I'm hoping for the best all the same.

I have learned some things about the music machine, and in an effort to churn out some chunes (tm) I shall be downloading loops ten at a time and trying to install them for use. I'm doing some LEARNING today. Maybe with a mallet.

Music might not happen but education certainly shall.

Wednesday, Day 1, Continuing

There's seven active cases and I have an increasing to go off about the state of things as they are and how it's hurting people or worse. BUT I also made a promise to finish posting Destiny's Fools and I am going to do that before I already have a rant.

Spoilers and TL:DR version - Privatisation Bad.

That aught to keep the need out of my blood stream for a little bit. Destiny's Fools is going to end sometime soonish

Sunday, Day 7, Lazy Day

The active case count is down to FIVE. The days without new case is up to SEVEN. This hasn't happened in so long, and I'm just waiting for another Moonmelon Tinfoil idiot to turn up and ruin it for everyone. That's what happened the last time there was a Day Twelve and there hasn't been a day this high since then.

Who knows? Maybe people are finally taking this bullshit seriously since there's consequences for acting like a dickhole. Financial and social

Saturday, Day 6, Mor Bread

So one loaf made on Wednesday turned out to be a sod [bum!] but we turned it into bruchetta-esque [bruchettesque?] and now there's a slight need for more bread because there's still only one loaf in the freezer.

I'm working with Ingrid today, and since I had a sod out of the batch, I'm going back to the four-hour proof in the hope that that works. Still going for the double breadpan thing. Eliminate the variables one at a time. Even if

Friday, Day 5, No Bread

I have the bikkie cooking, there's six active cases, and the bread I made on Wednesday has remained untouched. Possibly to teach me a lesson. "See? You did not need to rush to be sure we had bread. Calm down! Relaaaax.

My peeps. My dear darling peeps. I make bread because I care about you. Don't let it sit out and get mouldy or I will do murders... Because I spent time and effort on the bread and money on the flour.

Thursday, Day 4, Anxiety...

I've been online in one form or another since the 90's and I still don't know how to handle making someone angry on the internet. Which is why I'm awake at 1AM with no inclination to work on the journal because random shakes are a thing.

Fun times [/sarcasm].

Not planning to play the victim card, that's not a good look. I shall carry on in my beliefs, and work to be a better person by learning about things. It's the only

Tuesday, Day 2, PLNs

I'm seeing my shrink today. Guaranteed that I'm going to bitch about the spineless jellies in the Repugnican party. And entheuse about the new bread flour because it's pretty awesome.

There's still seven active cases in the quarantine hotels, and a whole lot of nonsense going on. All over the firkin world.

Speaking of:

  • Deadlier pandemic "inevitable" say experts. We wouldn't be here if you wore your fucking mask KAREN
  • Our shy and retiring wildlife want to play some tennis, apparently. From

Saturday, Day 1, PLNs

Today's the day I usually have a good old slob-off and a carb feast. Not this time. Tomorrow being heart-shaped chocolate day, and MeMum needing some technical assistance and a new phone. Involving the new phone. And sundry other errands in the process.

I'm doing my utmost to get a story done for you as soon as possible. The forces of distraction and procrastination are strong.

In the news:

  • Rats abandoning the Muppet's sinking ship. Some Repugnicans are starting a "word of

Friday, Day 0, Bread

If I hadn't been irrevocably awake at 1AM, I would not be trying this. But yes, I am making bread with my new stoneground Lauke brand flour which is like the second-healthiest bread I could possibly make. Yay.

The fam wants white bread. I can make it today, thanks to the head start involved in being awake at F-off AM. It's already at the autolysis stage, so I should be baking by the evening. Yay.

How I'll fare at my 1K goal

Wednesday, Day 1, Shenanigans

We're finally doing our tax nonsense so we can fill out the paperwork so Mayhem can get the help he needs to get a job and finally pay for things. [That lay in the house that Jack built] Puffpuff... Pantpant... I'm making sure I have my financial statements prepped. I don't believe anything's been overlooked.

I got up early, so that's two more pages in the journal transcribed. For my next trick, I shall post my wordpress nonsense before the alarm goes

Tuesday, Day 0, PLNs & possibilities

Two new cases send the total of actives to seven. Dangit. They're from overseas and detected in quarantine, so all is going moderately well. Yay?

I did manage some arts, yesterday, messing around with brush types in ProCreate to create a portrait version of my Tiefling. Because of course I'm going to learn about shading and creating the illusion of life with a guy who's blue.

I am keeping into the habit, which is a good thing. The more I do, the

Monday, Day 0, Around and round we go

We're back up to six active cases. Bleh. Once again a foreign import and in quarantine. The system we have is working.

Today's plns are all about unfuckening the house and getting Miss Chaos pointed in the right direction with the right stuff. Yay. Also aiming for 500 words as per my previous normal.

I'm getting more of my old creative energy back. That's a good thing. Dealing with quarantine has taken a toll. I actually made an art yesterday. Something I've

Sunday, Day 0, SLOTH 2

Another case from outside, but the active case count holds stable at 5. Sigh. The sooner the vaccine stops the disease from being a hazard, the better. Fingers crossed it works against the UK, African, and Californian variants.

Otherwise we will have MORE years of living under rocks and whatnot. BLARGH.

Nothing big planned for today. I might put aside global domination to terrify villagers today. Depends on what sleep I can capture.

I am operating on four hours' slumber and I
