Last Week of School

Miss Chaos is in the last week of her education, so I can accurately predict a whole bunch of late stories in the future because slobbing around and doing nothing is my jam.

I will endeavour to get all my shit done before sunset. No guarantees.

Asterisk: Reminder that sunset in Sunny Queensland happens at around six to seven PM because Summer.

Today's a cleaning day, and I have to do a cash run, but beyond that, there are no plans. Not even PLNs.

As far as the Yule PLNs are concerned, we have ham and prawns secured. Things like salad bits will have to wait until last minute or next to last minute. Same with the eggs that will be pre-boiled for the yule feast.

I will float the possibility of Festive Gorp for the whole nuts and stuff... but I'm not getting thirty billion cheeses again. Nope. Cheese cubes or rack off.

Of course I decided to be a little bit extra and got some fancy cups to set gelatine into for dessert. I'll give folks a choice between cheesecake mix with flavour [Probably lemon or peppermint] and the good old fashioned whipped cream.

Fortunately, we should also have a bunch of berries and I could plausibly whip up a keto custard as well, so there's the option for a make-your-own Fool1.

I might even finally bust out the chocolate fondue set so folks can dip what they like. Which means that a stash of chocolate is recommended for just-in-case.

Lots of PLNs. I just gotta make sure Beloved is OK with them.

  1. Fool: A dish made of fruit, custard, and cream; either in layers or sort of folded together. Sinful and delicious.

Lazy Sunday With Complications

I upgraded my Mac, which meant way more hassle than it should have been. Absolute HOURS getting shit together, swearing at the thing, and finally getting Beloved to unfuck that which I could not.

Needless to say, I am behind in my work.

Not helped by the love of my life insisting that I learn how to play Eve Online, their current favourite game.

My dear, my darling, I love you to bits, but PUH-LEEZ let me do my work before I

FUBAR'd Again

Last night was fun. The session went on WAY too long [half past midnight!] and I probably ate too much. Doesn't matter if you're on Keto, my dears. If you snack too hard, then you gain weight. End of.

I'm up by a kilo this morning and I have a persistent headache that may or may not be related to a cyclone somewhere. And worse - I came over with some sudden nausea that may also be related to watching Mumbo YouTube.

Game night tonight!

Obviously, I didn't finish novelising the last installment of Gerroff's adventures. I'll get there. It's just... really low priority.

The mystery of the multiple postage companies has been solved so much that I can timeline the events:

  1. Stevia Company sends me my stevia via Shipping Company 1
  2. AusPost won't take none of that shit
  3. Shipping Company 1 returns parcel to Stevia Company
  4. Stevia Company sends me my stevia via Shipping Company 2
  5. Who immediately just send it of via Australia Parcel Post

GAH!

Several things have gone wrong with my day including the original text for this post going missing.

  1. Parcel delivery missing without a trace
  2. Twice
  3. Place that used to have Stevia is completely without it
  4. So super delayed on today's story I can't even
  5. I JUST got back from the run-around and got a message that my postal locker has a parcel -_-
  6. Decide to finish the Instant at least so that SOMETHING got done today
  7. Mayhem has plans to be a

Whoopsiedoodles

I just remembered this morning that I didn't put my Patreon stuff up yesterday. That will happen today. Promise.

Also happening today is a new dishwasher. This means I really need to think about my next Ko-Fi goal because just about all my gaseous dreams are coming true.

Air con for the entire house? Check.
Improved solar and wall battery unit? Check.
Actual non-sabotagable power system for the shed where we park our cars? Check.
Drainage and fucking driveway for that same

Holidays For Some

Mayhem is finished with school for this year, as confirmed by a call from the office. They may just dig up an undone scrap of paperwork, but he's done.

Which means that he's on the job market for the holidays.

First mistake: Using Polite Writer Rules to apply for work.

You don't want to be a Nice Writer when looking for a summer job. Nice Writers give the people on the other side an ENTIRE MONTH to get back or whatever their

Monday Again?

I got another busy week again.

Monday's cleaning as per usual, but we're also getting a bloke in to look at the dishwasher. Which has suspiciously stopped having error messages on us GDI.

Mayhem is hoping to have his last day at school, today. Finishing up with an exam and getting all the last little necessities ticked and sorted out for the year. Since he's also racked up some internet fees, he's immediately looking for Summer Work (tm) which should teach out

Rushed!

So here's the deal:

  • Beloved has a Thing where they have to turn up for Loser Gambling Corp and smile and be nice to people who might not be employed for much longer
  • That thing starts in the afternoon
  • Therefore, I have to be home by the afternoon, so the household has one fully adult occupant or I can be dragged along, I'm not sure.
  • Therefore therefore, I must get the stuff for MeMum done quick-ish and take off home before lunch

Non-lazy Weekend

So here's the PLN:

1) Obtain a weed wand with the rope nonsense so I don't accidentally poison the plants I like
2) Poison the plants I don't like
3) Do all the daily palaver I do every day [this list is not in order obviously]
4) Tomorrow, I trundle out to the opposite side of the Earth Brisbane to see MeMum and sort out some of her tech for her.

I really, really want to share The Adventure Zone and sitting

Friday Already?

Mayhem's going to school to finish up the final things. Chaos is just going to school. I have to juggle my thousand words, Instant Story, minific du jour, and bratfetching this afternoon.

At least I don't have to drive into the Valley to play D&D until nearly firkin midnight.

I got a good sleep. I'm taking my proper pills. I'm doing everything I can to be certain I'm rested. And yet... Every. Single. Morning. I wake up firkin tired.

Successfully Bullied Myself

I've been gassing for days about making a start on my Kobold Bard's adventures. Last night, I got going on actually doing that. Yay.

I'm not done yet, but I will eventually be done. I have all of next week to create a story out of my brief adventure notes.

Not pushing myself there where I push myself to do other things. This is for entertainment. It should be entertaining for me. At the very least.

Shouldn't do it if it's not

I am disappoint

Mayhem is officially in the shit. He lied about being permitted to go home on Monday, so not I need actual office verification before I take one step to go collect him.

Mayhem knows he's stepped in it, and time will tell whether or not this inspires some responsibility. I'm starting with getting him to clean up his own messes.

Fingers crossed he wakes up to himself. Because his options are shape up or ship out. If he isn't a student, he

I can do this!

I have an appointment with the people fixing my car, today. The door latches on my car have been recalled and need replacing.

Thus, my PLN for the day includes bringing along MY NEW LAPPY to do all my work whilst on the move. I have everything set up.

Thus, I'm letting myself relax this morning and only focussing on this blog.

If I get as far as the Patreon stuff while on remote, all y'all will miss out on is the

Merry Birthmasween to MeMum

It's MeMum's birthday! Yay!

Can't deliver the tech support until the upcoming weekend, but it promises to be a definite delivery because I won't be up until like 2AM because D&D.

I got the brat run, soon, and all the other things that happen on a Monday. Plus the chance that Mayhem's school won't want him there for reasons. I dunno.

I'm hoping he can have a chance to catch up on everything and then get it signed off. Otherwise,
