Wordpress Wednesday

A 34-post collection

Wednesday, Day 3, Wordpress

Plague news: No new cases! There's twenty-two total active cases, fifteen are in hospital with one in the ICU. Australia's at 85% first vax, 69% (nice) fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 72.8% first vax, and 57.5% fully vaxxed.

I like these numbers. They are nice numbers. They could be better, but they are very nice numbers.

We're drawing closer and closer to the end of my Terrible Tiefling Tale, so I shall be planning to go off about stuff according to my personal whims until I run short and then? I dunno. Maybe pick up on Lust of the Demon Lord again.

We will see.

Today, all being well, I shall be painting the shelves that will house all of Beloved's beauty products and maybe some of my meds. Weather permitting. I already have my Wreckable Shirt on in preparation for this.

In the news:

  • Parents of missing 4YO reveal some worrying deets
  • Major changes to vax plns before Crimbolio
  • Plane crashes and explodes on takeoff
  • AFL star spouts antivax stance, cops backlash
  • Huge fuckoff hail in Northern Queensland
  • Japan did things differently and most of it was dependant on mask-wearing and getting people to behave
  • Train derailed in NSW
  • Taliban brutal to drug addicts. USA may be taking notes
  • Amputee model accused of using Photoshops to fake her disability
  • Hotel looks like Squid Game set
  • Blokes start having beauty regimes
  • Apple wants you to pay for their branded screen cleaner. Dude. Just go to an optometrist and get a microfibre cloth from them for free
  • Singer banned in China

And now for my content. Yay.

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: Four new cases, all imports. We have thirty-three total active cases, seventeen of those are in hospital, with one in the ICU. Australia's almost at 83% first vax, but steadily at 63% fully vaxxed. Queensland's at 70% first vax and 53% fully vaxxed. Two of those are in post-second-dose recovery at home.

All signs pointing towards Miss Chaos bouncing back like a freaking Superball. She's enjoying a day off. I will be checking on Mayhem later in the day.

Wednesday, Day 0, AUGH

Plague News: Two new cases, local transmissions. There's twenty-seven total active cases, sixteen of them are in hospital. Australia's at 79.9% first vax, 57.4% fully vaxxed. Queensland's STILL at 49% fully vaxxed.

It's 6 days until Miss Chaos gets her second jab. Mayhem gets his later on in the month. Drops in the ocean still fill it all the same.

Today, I am taking a bit of a holiday from my novel because it's fighting me. I need to catch

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress and Shenanigans

Plague news: Six new cases, four local, two imports. Despite this, there's not yet talk of a lockdown. Mostly because the Covidiots come out of the woodwork to make everything worse when they go off. There's seventeen total active cases as of noon yesterday, and seven of those are in hospital. In other states, people are dying of this shit in their homes and there are STILL people who think it's fake. AUGH. Australia's at 76% first vax - almost 77%, and

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

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

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress

Plague news: no new cases! Eighteen total active cases, with fourteen in hospital.

Today, I need to go forth and purchase for myself some tinned fish. Aldi is good for that.

BUT that will happen after I've posted today's story, and likely after I've fed everyone the latest instalment of my Tiefling's sad sad backstory.

I have (temporarily) run out of edits to work on for Adapting so I don't have to fret about that. Yay? But I still have to fret

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress and Jab

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! Twenty-three total active cases, with seventeen in the hospital.

These are numbers I like to see.

Today's the day I get sub-zero serum added into my arm and become a superhuman wifi hotspot a little better protected against the plague. Huzzah. I also have all day to low-key panic about this.

Of course you, my lovely readers, get another installment of my terrible Tiefling's backstory that explains exactly why he's such a paranoid arsehole with a prickly

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague News: Six new cases - two local and four imports. Forty-one total active cases, twenty-one in hospital and two in the ICU.

There's more of my terrible Tiefling lad to share on Wordpress and I'm gradually building up a bunch of stuff to rant about. Some of which I may actually write down at some point in my future.

My poor mum is dealing with Phone Issues. Calling it now - 98% chance she's hit a wrong button somewhere and accidentally

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: Two new cases, one of each. One hundred and ten total active cases, twenty-eight in hospital and one in the ICU.

There's going to be Leyland's Tour Shenanigans this Saturday. Important family stuff. Reveals afterwards, but please don't pre-emptively panic.

More of my terrible Tiefling lad for you on my Wordpress, and I have paperwork to deal with after that. Miss Chaos needs her red tape spooled.

And I have a board to build for my D&D game,

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress and Mountains

Plague news: Three new cases, all local. One hundred and Fifty-five total active cases, Sixty-three in hospital and one's in the ICU.

Beloved conquered a mountain this morning. Not the physical kind, the mental and emotional variety. My love and support has mattered the most and there was an emotional blowout. Love and support is one hell of a drug.

It's their thing to share with the world at their own speed.

Mountains are hell. Most of the metaphorical mountains are stress.

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague News: Day four of the three-day lockdown. We're extended to Sunday. Sixteen new cases, all local. Eighty two total active cases, forty-seven are in hospital and one in the ICU.

Desire to stay at home and order in my nonsense increases. Not that we're in danger of running out of a lot just yet. I'll have to see if my usual bargain haunts do delivery. Just in case.

Stupid plague.

On one hand, I want to rant about some things, on

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress

Plague news: No new cases. Twenty-five total active cases, twenty-five in hospital, and one in the ICU.

I'm booked to get my Pfizer shots in September. Huzzah. After I'm over that nonsense, I'll sync Chaos' shots with the holidays so she can be miserable at home with them... and discuss things with Mayhem about his. Beloved is apparently getting their shots at work. I don't know the time window there.


More Terrible Tiefling Tale is due on my Wordpress and I

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: Three new cases, one local, two imports. Thirty-six total, thirty-one in hospital, two in the ICU.

Today, there shall be more Terrible Tiefling Tale for you. More frenetic writing for me. And somewhere in the middle of that, I will be building a mountainside, tagging a month's worth of fiction, and maybe doing something fun instead of turning my brain off for the afternoon.

In the news:

  • Plague in the Olympics
  • More heartbreak from the removalists' family
  • Amazon billionaire arsehole

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: Three new cases, two local and one import. Dang. Forty-five local cases of which forty-one are in hospital... and one's in the ICU.

Scary beans.

More Tiefling tale will be appearing in Wordpress, in which I continue to depart from the plot to fill out some interesting aspects of learning things under the very prejudiced Master Bai.

Mostly things that Bai wished he wouldn't pick up so readily. Like being a cynical and paranoid pain in the bum.

In the
