Tuesday, Patreon and Dungeon building

I have a cyclone headache and the painkillers have done JACK SQUAT this morning. I shall be doing all computer things with sunnies on. Blargh.

The good news is that I'm nearly done with creating Level 10 of 23. If I make it to level 12, I can call myself halfway done with building the entire dang dungeon.

But I won't relax until I am DONE done with it all.

Today's the day I put Patreon rewards up for everyone. No new chapters in Kingdom of Sand, but PLENTY more of A Devil's Tale. Whoopsy.

Gotta keep my muse happy, I guess.

I shall attempt to focus a little more on Kingdom of Sand this week. BUT I'm also using the rowing machine after I eat today. Ten minutes of exercise. Nice and easy. Just to start with.

Odds evens, I do not eat today. That's how terrible I am at looking after myself. BUT I also want to be thinner and fitter so... Gotta make myself do the thing.

Storytime.

Long Monday, the Exhaustening

It's been a fun game, not gonna lie. My players thought they could fill in an entire hour with faffing about, then decided to try sneaking up to the Dragon and then...

They didn't have a fucking plan of attack.

They have a week to think of one whilst I decide on the resolution to the cliffhanger.

I shall do my story stream, then waken the rest of my house before catching what nap I can before the TaleFoundry readings.

My voice

Sunday, Supertired

It's almost noon, and my throat hurts. I might need to tone down Gort's voice because it does things to me.

OR it could because Sneezin' and Wheezin' Season has made me cough and have lung issues.

It's hard to tell. I shall make myself some Shandy and hope for the best. And I have to check on my meds supplies because FUCK Sneezin' and Wheezin' Season.

It keeps kicking my butt.

The good news is that ScoMo is No Mo'. He

Saturday, Democracy Sausage and Sog

It's raining, the yard's a quagmire, and I will put my vote in to change ScoMo's job title today. Yay.

Also coming with are Beloved and Mayhem. Beloved and I are planning to wear our pride pins to ward off spruikers for the White One Australia Party and the United Fascist Australia Party. Both of those parties are bigoted gits and I can't believe they have a following.

Then again, the orange canker sore who used to be POTUS has a following

Friday, Unfuckening vs Blobbification

I have unfuckening to do, but I also want to blob myself into unconsciousness. I can start with the minimum and try from there.

I missed out on blobbing with Beloved last night because I firkin passed out. Then I was awake at roughly midnight to catch Miss Chaos bouncing about like a mad thing.

She at least has four hours' of sleep now. This might help her stay awake at school. I can hope.

There's also Starters to feed, Bikkie to

Thursday, Progress and PLNs

I have finished building the walls and floors of level 9 of 23. Now I have to furnish and add mobs to level 9 of 23. THEN I start on level 10 of 23. Which I hope to heaven will be nice and easy to construct.

...too many dang diagonals and round rooms in this one gone. Pleh.

I find out when I am done furnishing level 9 though. No peeking. If I looked at the entire thing, I would balk and

Wednesday, Wordpress & Date PLNs

I am very tired -_- So tired that I slept until the alarm this morning. The wet weather is getting to me and all I want to do today is Be Blob.

BUT we also need to purchase kitter foods, cream, and probably some other essentials [like our favourite flavour sauces] and that's going to take even more out of me.

I might propose a Grand Day In for date night this evening. Get some ridiculous face masks, order a platter

Tuesday, Patreon PLNs and New Slab Who Dis?

Miss Chaos had a smol shopping spree and a lovely dinner, last night. She got a game called Are You Dumber Than A Box of Rocks? and a Funko Pop that happened to amuse her. We also got her a Teppenyaki dinner and dessert at a place called Cowch.

If you love sugar, and I mean freaking LUHUV sugar, try getting your fill at Cowch. #NotSponsored.

They are an indulgence.

Today, I shall be posting lots of stuff in lots of tiers.

Long Monday, New Map PLNs

I finished level 8 of 23 and have begun level 9. Yay.

Given that it's a map with actual right angles, I shall heartily enjoy making this one a virtual reality. So to speak.

I'll leave all the trickiest parts for last. Save what there is of my sanity for another day.

That's IF I feel like rising from my bed before the afternoon.

It's a day that I do not expect very much from myself. It's allowed. Thanks to wonky sleep

Sunday, Sleeplessness Sillies

Beloved and I went out anyway. Because Kitten D'amour was releasing new clothes.

Beloved has new business outfit. I have a new witchy outfit. LOL.

I also fell pretty fast asleep after that nonsense and THAT was why I was awake at fuckoff-AM unable to rest at all.

On the plus side, I did get a lot of a chapter written. On the minus side, it wasn't for the book I was trying to write for pro reasons.

Whoops.

I am going

Saturday, Crash'd PLNs

There was going to be an LGBTIPAQ+ social event today, but it was cancelled because flooding. "Yay".

To ameliorate the disappoint, we are having a grand day in. We shall make the luxury hot chocolate and have cupcakes and watch Our Flag Means Death together. Maybe have a spa bath sometime close to the evening.

Just a lazy day at home. Nothing planned. An enjoyable nothing, but nothing nonetheless.

IF we stir from the bedchamber, I might be building more of Level

Friday, Unfuckening PLNs

I'm going to have to swap my boots for wellies just to clean the catio. For my next trick, I shall make a chart of potentially random potions.

All because my crew of chaotic murder hobos planted their Rando Beans and now have a bunch of potion fruits. Because of course they do.

There's TONS of potions you could have.

I have to work out how to randomise them all.

Also in my PLNs is to work on more of level 8,

Thursday, Chambering and Shenanigans

Having company whilst building chambers in TaleSpire is way more productive for the building of said chambers. It's easier to do things with company.

This set of chambers is going to be waterlogged and I need to check and see if the Kobold will drown when the water is where the book says it will be.

It's my universe. I decide who drowns.

Ahem.

Yesterday, my love and I tried to reach a Fish and Chippery called Yabby Road. Alas, it was

Wednesday, Wordpress and Date Night

We're having the second once-in-20-year rain event THIS YEAR and I'm having flashbacks to 2012 when we were having once-a-century rain events every other week.

MeMum's "looking forward" to a reflooding, but fingers crossed the measures she has in place now actually work to keep the water out of her house.

The rain may interfere with Date Night, which has previously involved visiting a fish and chippery called -get this- Yabbie Road.

If they don't have yabbies on their menu, I shall

Tuesday, Patreon and Postage

My meds have gone ackers in the post, and AusPost wants me to wait for next week before I can report it missing. Yay.

I did get on to iHerb about the fuckup, so there's hope that something can be sorted about all this. The big problem is that mailing forms have ONE entry to put the street address in and you can't put the whole thing in the forms.

AND AusPost keeps changing their mind about the important bit -_-
