Saturday, Day 1, Unfuckening Part 2

Plague news: no new cases! Twenty total active cases with only nine in hospital. Australia's almost at 75% first-vax and 50% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 44% fully vaxed. I am still rather weary but I have only minor aches in my arm now.

I am going to cut up all the free range cardboard so it takes up less space, and finally go through the Pile from the computer room floor.

I was distracted by getting new kitty litter yesterday. Beloved came along and you know what that means. We "found" a bunch of other stuff we needed. Whoops.

In the news:

  • One of China's "too big to fail" companies is about to fail
  • "Promising young man" who stabbed his wife 29 times and murdered her is apparently not guilty because she provoked him -_- The struggle continues
  • Antivaxxer emerges from jail and announces engagement. Charming
  • Zoo visitors stunned by the knowledge that animals don't know what "private acts" are
  • 9/10 bellyband surgeons recommend bellybands for fat kids -_-
  • Vegans have been adding stickers to parcels in the meat section. Mmm-mm, I do love the partially burned portions of a decomposing corpse of a murdered animal
  • Disney faces $27Million child sex abuse lawsuit. They have enough feral lawyers to skate out of this without a scratch
  • Explorers reach the bottom of the "Well of Hell"
  • Racists kicked out of a diversity space. Shocker 9_9

And now, today's story.

Friday, Day 0, Unfuckening Overdue

Plague news: Two new cases, one of each -_- Twenty-five total active cases, thirteen of those are in hospital. Australia's at 74% 1st vax, 49% fully vaxxed. Queensland is still at 43% fully vaxxed. I have motion back in my arm with minimal pain and PLNs to take it slowly but surely today.

The rubbish and recycling peeps have kindly entered our bins so today's a perfect day to start filling them all over again. Yay.

Today, I will get rid

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,

Wednesday, Day 0, Mor Jabs

Plague news: One new case, an import. Twenty-nine total active cases, nineteen of those are in hospital. I'm due to get my second Pfizer jab this afternoon! All of Australia's almost at 73% having their first jab, and we're nearly at 48% having had their second. Queensland is 42% fully vaxxed.

I have some devastating story to share on Wordpress today. Kosh is throwing himself at heartbreak and smashing himself to pieces. One among many instances of self-destructive behaviour that occur during

Tuesday, Day 0, Jabs at Last!

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. Twenty-eight total active cases, with eighteen in hospital. The kids are getting their first jabs today and myself and Beloved are getting our second ones tomorrow.

Which means that the next couple of weeks are going to be "fun". Especially when we're also aiming to unfuck the house and yard.


I have to do the Patreon stuff after the kids have been pierced. Because getting them organised is the big challenge this AM.

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.

Sunday, Day 0, PLNs

Plague news: One new case, a local. Twenty-nine total active cases. Twenty in hospital. One in the ICU.

Beloved and I have a shopping list, so it's odds evens we'll come back with more than we wanted.

We need cat food, I need coffee. I just got a hand-crafted cam cover [thanks Babe!]. Photos eventually on my Insta.

SOMEwhere today, we will get the floor picked up from all the assorted nonsense that got strewn there. But that's later.

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

Friday, Day 0, Busyness

Plague news: Three new cases - one local, two imports. Thirty-two total active cases, twenty in hospital and one in the ICU.

Something broke for me last night and I am shifting chunks like nobody's business today. I only feel like I'm breathing easier so one of my tasks this morrow is to put myself on Max for another dose.

My head firkin HURTS today. I've already taken ibuprofen and paracetamol for it. It's not kicking in so great. Alas. I predict

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:

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: Two new cases, one of each. There's twenty-eight total active cases, nineteen in hospital and one in the ICU.

Chaos has gone through having the Lurgi. Mayhem has doubtless also recovered. Which means I get to be a big baby and curl up for a majority of the day.

Chicken soup and Shandy are my orders of the day. Five seconds after I post my Wordpress nonsense, belike.

I am being gentle with myself. If I make it to 500

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: Four new cases, two of each. Twenty-six total active cases, eighteen of those are in hospital and one's in the ICU. Lovely.

Both the spawn are down with a random sickness. Lurgi has struck the household and it's only a matter of days before it strikes at me.

We've rescheduled the big jab for a week later and crossing our fingers.

I don't have an awful lot for Patreon, but I'm doing my best. I'm pretty sure my patrons understand.

Monday, Day 1, Shenanigans

Plague news: No new cases! Twenty-one total active cases, fourteen of those are in hospital.

Beloved and I are unfucking the house some more. My whirlwind wife is making progress I never thought possible. It's amazing.

Somewhere in our agenda, there's going to be a fix for my hair. We over-estimated the power of one of the chemicals and it came out as the wrong sort of blue. Whoops.

There's also going to be cauliflower gnocci at some point.

In other news,

Sunday, Day 0, Another Day "Off"

Plague news: EIGHT new cases [and a plethora of hotspots]. Five local transmissions, three imports. There's twenty-one total active cases, thirteen of those are in the hospital.

I can already guess a Knomira got loose with the plague. Some of those hotspots are in MeMum's roaming range. She's had both her jabs, but she's still waiting for efficacy to kick in. Yeeps.

Beloved and I are Spring Cleaning. New gender, new attitude, new house. I'm loving it.

We need storage solutions to

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.
