Mo Monday...

Mo hassles.

Tomorrow is a really big day, run-around wise. Pippi is getting her stitches out in the same hour-ish that Mayhem is attending some kind of welcome-to-your-McJob party. I also have a shrink visit and I have to wish MeMum a merry birthmas.

Busy day.

I have to do a money run today, and unfuck the house, and go get a new stash of Halo Top because it's my Sanity Treat.

I shall also be doing the Instant in good time and attempting to focus on my word quotas. Which is going to start in a couple of minutes because bus-watchin' time. Whee.

Off I go!

We Gotta...

There's loads of stuff we gotta do.

We gotta:

  • Get more kibbles for the kitties
  • Trade in the absolute bags of bags of monetarily-beneficial recycling
  • Get me some new sandals because the extant set I firkin LOVED have been loved to death.

Which means that, at some point in today, I shall have to get clothes on and go outside. Bluh.

The paints I have have turned weird on the wet pallet, and I have to chew out Mayhem for putting out

Aaaahhh

I'm looking forward to getting some decent rest, this weekend. Toasty, the legend, needs a breather from drawing her fid. Therefore, I am getting an entire night's sleep tonight.

Yay.

My experiments are yielding results:

  • Wet pallets make the paint go 'funny' over an extended period of time, turning the paints there into washes by accident. Solution - mor layers!
  • It doesn't matter if the primer is grey or black, the colours seem to go on just fine with enough care and

Reprieve?

I got a phone call yesterday afternoon and my car is free from limbo. It was an oxygen sensor and they say they've fixed it. A test-drive will make sure. I figure if nothing's fucked up by the time I've gone full circle by way of Costco, then nothing's fucked up.

Whee.

So today's schedule includes unfucking the house, rescuing-testing my car, and potentially seeing how white applies to Practice Dude A.

I would also like to get my hands on some

Wore My Grubs

I have been rattlecanning in the pale light of the dawn, with ominous, dark, thick clouds threatening rain.

Nice thing about putting a thin coat of primer on things is that one coat is dry before you've finished futzing about with the camera to take photos. So I got all my layers done and documented the progress for my peeps on Patreon next week. Woot.

I shall be further futzing about with base colours later on today. Energy pending. My practice dude

Faaaaaarrrrkkk...

So here's the situation:

  • Car's in the repair shop. Again
  • They have managed to duplicate the big problem [suspected misfiring]
  • BUT they still don't know what is causing it

Trust me to get a new engine and have it turn out to be a lemon.

So my car is in limbo once more as the techie people unriddle what the actual fuck... My Beloved has had a birthday and some SINFUL amounts of carbs to go with. There is a pavlova in

@#$%!

Insert pictograms and grawlixes here.

My car has a little problem. According to KIABIL, it's misfiring, and the engine light is on constantly. This JUST after it's been allegedly fixed. I swear to firk, I have the worst luck with technology. Especially technology I only peripherally understand.

Anyway, part of my shenanigans today involves getting my jumpy car out to the repair peeps, getting a lift back home, and returning to stealing my Beloved's car. Sigh.

At least I have ice cream.

Now What?

So. Mayhem is officially off school and deciding his own life. Fun. I now only need concern myself about Chaos' schedule and schooling... as well as my own nonsense. Nonsense that now includes learning how to do and paint minis. Whee.

I should be back on my bullshit regular novel-writing schedule this week, and the goal is either 57K (most likely) or 60K - officially halfway, but extremely unlikely.

So this day is a cleaning day, with my freshly-desexed kitty free of

Level Up!

My Tiefling Monk [and Nightcrawler Expy] hit level 2 and gained Ki points... Alas, we missed out on RP of a cool training montage. So I did what any writer would do - I wrote five pages of training montage to kind'a share how cool it all looked inside my head.

...I may be forced to DM something because of this, IDK.

Maybe authors shouldn't be allowed to play D&D because we're wont to pull shit like this.

Anyway. 'Tis

Ow...

Yesterday was bloody exhausting. So much so that I conked out and wound up being awake at one in the morning... writing self-indulgent claptrap.

I wrote so much that I hurt my wrist.

Fucking whoops.

I also have D&D tonight. So I'm in for a long-ass day. A day that includes taking Mayhem to a pre-formal so he can schmooze and show off for one last time with his schoolmates.

At least I don't have to drag his arse to

Run the Fuck Out

Ok, so here's the situation. I got a son to deliver to graduation, a kitty to deliver for her hysterectomy, a child to deliver to her bus, and said graduation to attend.

Story is going to be hella late.

I can try to get stuff done, but I can't make promises.

I did wake up earlier this morning, but I dove into temptation and spent my energy on some self-indulgent claptrap that may never see the light of day.

A bit of a breather? Nope

Today, Mayhem has a job interview. Also today, I have to go out and snag some kitty fodder of the soft and gooshy variety. I did promise Mayhem that I would get him some Kobolds to paint.

We're not painting yet. We have to have a clear workspace to work in and that means (gasp of dread) putting the laundry away. Horrible fate, that.

I'm also planning to do a thing on why my pet universe centres on the idea that Humans

OK. Here we go.

My schedule this morning is looking like this:

  • Do blog
  • Do as much Patreon stuff as I can, including a backlog of stories
  • Brat run
  • Come home and find Jolie
  • Imprison Jolie in cat carrier
  • Take Jolie to get jabs
  • Bring her back home
  • Release the feline (and be unforgiven for the remains of the day)

So today's tale may be a smidge late. Or more than a smidge. And I may not have the wherewithal to do a flash fanfiction, so

So here's the sitch

I had a reasonably large nap this afternoon, and when I awoke, I realised two things:

  • Hey, there's a new season of She-Ra on Netflix
  • Whoops, I didn't fictionalise that prompt I got

So I merged both of those into a really long and non-productive ficcing session [because cartoons are pretty] And I wasn't done much before 11:30... when I planned to be up and about for Toasty's stream in which I see more of the new video come to form.

Saturday!

My love still has to go to work on a weekend, and the Queensland Summers are making it nigh impossible to keep the cats out of doors in the daylight. Cleaning Day just got 1000% more interesting because cats.

Today is interesting because I'm planning a game day with DFATW. I need to get my story done or it'll never get done.

Let's get on with it.
