A Lot of Unriddling

So. I tried and failed to make a new map in Roll20. I'm currently seeking help on that one.

I'm trying to at least build some interlinked text in WorldAnvil, with varying degrees of success. Last night, I had a folder with subfolders viewable to anyone. Today... I just have that first page and have to work a little harder to link everything. I'll muddle around with it until I hit Frustration.

I'm making small progress, anyway.

I might even trash some efforts in favour of the new efforts. I'll see how arsed I get later in the day.

Possibly much later in the day.

I have a story to write and some words to add to my novel... and some shenanigans to deploy. I also have a brat to run and a story to write and zero news about my car and...

...at least I have ice cream. Sigh.

Approaching Normal

I have both sets of braining meds! Interestingly, the ones that had to wait for stock beat out the ones that had to cross the Pacific Oceans to get to me.

The cat flap is repaired with a qualifier attached in the flavour of "for now".

We are going to need a new one. But it's at a state of being in which it can do it's job. For now.

My car has been surrendered to the mechanics and I will find

Shenanigans!

So. I ordered my Ashwagandha, but... the place I ordered it from is out of stock.

I have to wait a WEEK to brain properly again. At minimum.

On the plus side, a parcel from the states arrived and I'm busily attempting to figure out all of the assorted nonsense within. The cat toys have been distributed to my little fluffy friends. Everything else is a matter of my int rolls at the time.

Not looking good on that count for next

Nibbling to Death

I got another quarter of Inter-Mission done and managed to record five more stories for the next one. Yay.

All because I went to sleep long about 5PM and was out of it until 3AM.

Little kitties were wont to make pest of themselves, too. I stood firm and didn't feed them until it was five. I had to lock them out of the room because they were wont to trample my keyboards and get in my way and all that nonsense.

So close!

I have one post waiting for bolts. One more post waiting to be situated that needs some judicious grinding to get it to fit. Alas, Mayhem was silly enough to wear bare feet on the building site yesterday, so we need him to remember his firkin boots, this time around.

It's so close to the next step. Even with muddy ground.

I just want this DONE, dangit.

Speaking of getting things done, I've been able to get 1K words into Kingdom of

Challenge #02365-F175: Motivational Inspiration

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iYYRH4apXDo -- Anon Guest

It was vaguely conical, and smaller than the most popular cars of the late Terran Twentieth Century. This was a vessel designed to get three Humans back to their planet after a long and perilous journey to truly hostile territory. There was just enough room for three Humans and all the samples they had gathered while they were up there.

What was more worrying was the landing craft for their missions to

Challenge #02363-F173: The Ego Won't Be Landing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDs5Abg0M9A -- AmberFox

There is, in fact, a Starman waiting in the sky. He is not leaning back on his radio, as the song once said, but is seated comfortably in a red roadster, wearing a stylish spacesuit. He posed so that he could, with a glance, read the dashboard display that says, Don't Panic!

He does not say anything. He does not do anything. That's because he is, in fact, a dummy. An effigy of

Around and round I go...

The family and I got the frame... mostly up. There's still a lot of jiggery-pokery involved, including the assembly of the front door to the little place.

It's only now that I realise that the kitty enclosure is going to be firkin huge and Kitty is truly, truly going to be spoiled. It's a room that's only a smidge smaller than the dorm room my love used to live in when they were in uni. For a human, that's criminally small. For

Good News, Bad News

Good news: game night is back on.

Bad news: next week.

Good news: I finished all the sawing and we made a door.

Bad news: without thinking that we needed to paint that mofo first.

Good news: The second episode of Inter-Mission has launched and you can listen to it minus the playlist here, or check out the playlist linked in the menu up on the top right of the page.

Bad news: Yeah, now I have to do a new ep

Working on the Footprint

We are now in progress on a University-dorm-room-sized rectangle that is going to contain the concrete bed of the Kitty Kondo(tm). Once we've moved all the grass and created a really interesting rectangular muddy hole, of course.

We're in overtime. I'm freaking out. Baby Meep is ready to have a new home, but her home isn't ready yet and everything is going so slowly and AUGH!

It's stressing me out, but I gotta keep going. Otherwise it'll never get done. It's

Progressing... Slowly

Executive decisions are being made. My concerns about the initial bends in some of our planks has been addressed at last - we're using nuts and bolts to put this behemoth together.

We have more toys, in this case, an iron-shaped sanding thingie to adjust the fact that I cut some holes too narrow for the wood to fit. Because I stressed about the whole "mark with chalk" part of the deal. I know better now.

Today, on my PLN, I have

One in the Can

I finished up the sound profiles for the very first episode of Inter-Mission. Huzzah. I also recorded five more stories for the next episode.

If I keep up with the average of five stories per episode, with two musical interludes, Mayhem and I are going to have to write some more musics.

Premier album, here we come.

Probably two or more, the way we're going.

Today... my agenda is way more relaxed. I got three more weeks of writing B'Nar before I

PROGRESS!

I have an almost-half-hour episode in the bag and I am now adding a musical score of sorts to underlay the story. Making lazy loops is... interesting. I usually don't do more than three instruments because it'll be at a low volume to overwhelm any hiss, but not the actual words of the podcast.

It's turning out good. I have a drama track, a romance track, and a suspense track, and that should be all I need until I get to the

Into the Wild Blue Yonder

Audacity... flies. The learning curve is so gentle that Flat Earthers would declare it a straight line. I owe these guys some money.

I do remain slightly vexed that you have to manually flick between the move and selection tools, but it's a price I can pay for snipping out awkward pauses, re-takes, gulps, and horking up lumps of mucous.

It happens.

So far, I have twelve minutes of total audio so far, and the knowledge of how to cut, copy, paste,
