Wordpress Wednesday

A 23-post collection

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 the other, I really want to share my Tiefling's backstory.

The things I want to rant about? Cosmic Sin and Centaurworld, but for different reasons. I can recommend the latter with all of my heart. I do not necessarily recommend Cosmic Sin.

There's SciFi that's terrible because it knows it's terrible. There's SciFi that's terrible because it takes itself too seriously and tries too hard. Both are adored because of that. Then there's the SciFi that's terrible because they half-arsed a bunch of ideas. Cosmic Sin is this. Some people involved in the production cared, but you can tell where they gave up.

In the news:

  • Olympics
  • Jason Momoa won't put up with fandom bullshit invasive questions
  • Lockdowns could last for firkin ages
  • Plague
  • A Knomira got arrested for not wearing a mask. At Firkin LAST
  • Fashion Police in Little Woolies outraged at someone else's outfit
  • Bill Gates divorced

Aaaannnd I could not focus on writing my novel yesterday. I'm okay. I did write some words, but I didn't exactly take off. I'm going to leave off counts for the rest of the week and write until I just can't. Be kind to me.

I've done this before and weathered the storm. I can do this again.

But enough of this nonsense. On with my other nonsense.

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

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress and teeth

Plague news: six new cases, one local. Five imports. Forty-nine total, with forty in hospital.

There's a fresh new story coming out soon. And sometime after that, I will be going on Wordpress for that weekly nonsense.

Later this morning, I'm getting some teeth drilled and filled. I will not be a happy camper until the swelling goes down.

But for now, the news:

  • Delta strain sails by extant vaccines
  • Some idiot punched a cart horse
  • Schools to stay closed in NSW

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: four new cases, two of each import and local transmission. Forty-one total cases and all of them are in hospital. We're in day one of a three-day lockdown. Thanks, Knomiras.

Straight after I post here, I'm going to stream the creation of another flash fiction. Link in the list from the hamburger.

In the news:

  • Delta hits the headlines in relation to Queensland
  • Former Disney star did a racy photoshoot and now people are slamming him for it
  • Lockdown shenanigans

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Plague news: 1 local, two imports. Thirty-five total with twenty-seven in hospital. Once again, the local transmission is a quarantine worker who assumed they were safe and let the protocols slip. Whoops.

The vax only protects YOU. It does not stop transmission because this shit can hang out on surfaces for a day or more. Wash your fucking hands, wear your gotdang mask, and know where your hand sanitiser is.

...and vaccinate your fucking kids...

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress Continueth

Plague news: One new case, an import. Twelve active, with eleven in hospital.

Today... I get to chill, but only after I've been to the dentist, because I've been pushed up to have a thing going on today. Also, there's an APM meeting this afternoon.

Somewhere in the labyrinthine expanses of today's hours, I am going to attempt to program in a tag part of the app.

The things I do to myself.

Including: Someone's waved a shiny idea at me over

Wednesday, Day 2, GOOOOOO!!!!

Plague news: No new cases, thirteen active ones that are all in hospital.

The last stage of Fixit Day is happening this morning when the cabinet guy comes around to make sure everything is sealed to heck and back. But otherwise we have a functioning bathroom vanity. Huzzah.

I didn't have the wherewithall to code anything yesterday because tradies in my house. At least I got the Patreon nonsense done. And the Instant. And my 500 words. Output successful.

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress Once More

Two new cases, both imports. Sixteen total cases, twelve in hospital. I've got more of my Tiefling's story to share and more JavaScript to learn. And more novel to write, and another instant for your continued entertainment.

I'm back on the vegemite soup because I apparently need niacin. I also need to remember to keep the humidifier filled or I'll have a bad air day the next morning.

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Two new cases, both imports. Fourteen total cases, twelve in hospital.

There's a PBL meeting in which I shall share again the immense document I put together about what to find, where to find it, and how much it is when you get it there. Which means I shall need heinous amounts of caffeine because I have come over with Super Tired today -_-

I got a decent night's sleep. I don't get it. Maybe it's depression. Maybe it's Maybeline.

Wednesday, Day 1, Wordpress

No new cases, so we have seventeen with the plague and only sixteen in hospital. Therefore, one got out as far as the hotel. Yay.

There shall be more of a Terrible Tiefling Tale, with all the bits and bobs and maybe even a footnote. We shall see.

In the news:

  • ScoMo's new budget reveal. Who wins? Who loses? Bet there's no solution to the debt problem we've got besides "give more money to rich people" which is no solution at all

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

One case that's an import, putting the total active cases up to eighteen. Seventeen of these good people are in hospital. Eesh.

In today's Wordpress, I shall be wringing more angst juice out of one snippet of my original bullet points.

Today promises to be extra fun because cyclone headache. I've taken my painkillers and an antihistamine, so I am sincerely hoping that that cuts down on the nonsense I'm dealing with. Bad air days suck, and I'm hoping to learn whether

Wednesday, Day 0, Wordpress

Two new cases, both imports. Fifteen total cases, eleven in hospital. That leaves four chilling out in quarantine. I'm glad the numbers are going down. Whew.

Today, Wordpress will see more of One Tiefling and I get to bafflegab about my writing process based on the skeleton. Speaking of the skeleton - I fixed the link in the first episode to the actual skeleton [link provided for those who don't want to archive trawl] and I'll be providing it again for those
