Saturday, Brunch Shenanigans

I'm going out for brunch with Beloved and my DM. Which are two different people. I've never had a brunch before so this promises to be interesting.

I've also got Miss Chaos trying No Frills Clarityne in the hopes that this fixes the dang cough. Fingers crossed.

She may have similar issues with Sneezin and Wheezin Season that I do. Dangit.

BUT I also have to be ready for everything tut suite so we can be offski ASAP. Fun.

I am also on the no-frills antihistamine. Yay. See if that changes my breathing experience. I am fully prepared to be diagnosed with Dummins for the previous weeks.


Thursday, I Need Air!

Sneezin' and Wheezin' Season is kicking my butt. STILL. I need long rugby socks to keep my fetlocks from freezing. STILL. Miss Chaos still has a cough. STILL.

Good news, I see the doc this friday. Just in time. I have almost run out of my meds.

I also know how to show proof of my jabs. Huzzah.

So today is a day of rest. I shall work on one chamber minimum in TaleSpire and not expect very much out of myself

Sunday, Game Night Shenanigans

Achievement unlocked: Buried hatchets. Cleared the air with involved parties and renewed backup systems in place. Huzzah.

Tonight, my players fight a dragon. Yay.

This morning, I had a good old-fashioned anxiety attack and used it to get some writing in [eventually]. Namely, getting the Tale Foundry prompt entry written early.

I make sleeplessness work for me.

Might as well, right?

I have no further plans than resting my wrists [I borked them a little whilst doing the prompt story] and scheduling

Saturday, Feast Shenanigans

Beloved has PLANS for today. Plans that include waffles and nonsense with sugar. Which is the best kind of nonsense.

Lighter Bag Quest is probably on the schedule.

My wrists are rested enough to write, but it's probably not on my schedule. If anything gets done, I will count it as a win.

Carrying my shit with me is becoming a Problem. Bum bags cause bruising on my hips. Shoulder bags do my shoulders in. Backpacks inevitably cause hassles. And the good

Thursday, Further Shenanigans

Date Day happens today because that's when The Bad Guys is showing at a cinema somewhere. The work of funny animal heist animation that is also known as Lupin the Furred because anime fans spotted some cinematic parallels in a picosecond.

I shall attempt to populate that level I've been working on until such time as I am needed elsewhere. After that, it's all smoke as far as I recall.

I now have pink roots under my purple streak, by the way.

Friday, Day 0, Shenanigans

Still not looking at the news or the stats. I might be feeling better through wilful ignorance, but I am not there yet. Not at the top of my game.

Beloved got me a proper weighted blanket and for the first time in forever I did not wake up in the middle of the night with heat issues. I woke up in the middle of the night because the air was no longer circulating. I may have to get a small fan

Thursday, Day 0, Shenanigans!

Plague Diary: Two new cases, both imports. There's forty-one total active cases, thirty-four of those are in hospital. Australia's at 93% first vax, and 88.5% fully vaxxed. Queensland's still tied for last with WA at 87.7% first vax, 79.6% fully vaxed. TAZMANIA has hit >95% first vax. Good onyer Tazzie!

I have to round up Pippi for vaccine later on today. Fortunately, Pip is easy to catch. Easier than Jolie, anyway.

I aim to get one chamber a day

Saturday, Day 0, Shenanigans

Plague news: Five new cases, all imports. Twenty-eight total active cases, fourteen are in hospital, with one in the ICU. Australia's at 86% first vax, 71.7% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 74% first vax, and 59% fully vaxxed.

The country is opening up whether we're ready or not. This is sure to end badly but nobody cares any more. Everyone is a million percent DONE with this plague and anti-plague measures and it's just... whatever. Let's get business rolling again.

The catio

Sunday, Day 0, It's Loose

There's another case of local transmission this morning. Six new cases. Seventy-one total. Sixty-two in hospital. Two in the ICU. That's seven with the potential to cause even more trouble.

I'm not looking at the news this morning because Toasty's streaming already and there are untold PLNs of Beloved happening later on after sunrise. So now I'm trying to get as much done before I find out what else is going on.

I may be required to drive after minimal sleep -_

Friday, Day 0, Shenanigans Commence

There's three new cases, sixty-five active, sixty-two in hospital and one in ICU. Two apparently free to chill in a hotel somewhere. At least according to my math. I have all sorts of assorted shenanigan going on and one big difference between now and every other Friday before.

Today is Payday!

::curlytoot noise::

That's right, folks. I'm giving myself money I've already earned at a rate sufficient to fly under Mr Taxman's radar. Don't worry, I also already earned it at a

Tuesday, Day 0, Shrinky Shenanigans

Four new cases, today. Fifty-eight active cases. Fifty-four in hospital, two in ICU. That leaves only two who are spinning their wheels in quarantine. The artist formerly known as Spanish Prison Guard[TAFKASPG] has decided to knuckle down and actually do the work they promised me. I hope.

They've turned suddenly polite now that I don't have a lot of ready cash to siphon from my Peakd account. I remain suspicious.

Today, I am writing everything on the go. Today, I am

Saturday, Day 0, Shenanigans

There's nine new cases. NINE. Fifty-eight active cases. Only nine of them are chilling outside a hospital. Yikes on bikes going on hikes.

Despite my inclinations to buy a bunker at this point, we have a scavenger hunt today. Digging up or obtaining the things necessary for Chaos' planned two-day jaunt in the wilds of the Aussie bush. There's a lot of stuff. Fortunately we have some of it from Mayhem's days in the Scouts [all five of them lol] but there's

Thursday, Day 1, Shenanigans

The active case count is holding at fourteen, and I am still nervous about that. Not that I've had very many plans to go anywhere and do anything. At all. For a firkin year. Thanks, Moonmelon Tinfoil.


Yesterday was a bit of a stresser. Had to drag Mayhem out of my normal circuit for red tape chase, but my takeoff time was delayed because Chaos' bus was late and Mayhem was understandably stressed about the delay. Lesson in progress: allow for

Thursday, Day 1, Shenanigans

Holding stable at seven active cases. Keeping an eye on the nonsense. Because seeing another Day 12 is my fondest dream. I have gone out without a mask at freaking last, but I'm still doing the social distancing and hand sanitiser when available, and still not lingering very long in the general emporia.

I miss browsing.

Overflow has closed down and debunked since the last time I was there. The sign's still up but there's nothing in the shell. A little scary,

Sunday - Day Three - Leyland's Tour!

Yesterday was almost complete shenanigans and most of it was spending too much money getting supplies. Thanks to the lack of community transmission, I actually felt bold enough to shop around rather than go on the most efficient path to obtain the thing.

Things have changed so much it's disorienting.

  • Big W has two dedicated exits and one dedicated entrance
  • Golden Circle Factory Outlet has moved
  • Right next to a Silly Solly's
  • I went to six different places and forgot to get
