Challenge #02353-F163: But it Looks Like Fun

I can't believe I have to say this but, stay out of volcanoes. -- Anon Guest

Of all the multiple and nuanced arguments in favour of Humanity being an insane species, there is one that is simply one word:

Vulcanologists.

Though the field of science exists across any species born on a world with tectonic activity, only the Humans ever came up with the idea of wandering around and poking at a mountain that might explode. Everyone else was sensible about it, inventing probes, robots, and other non-invasive means of finding out the how and why of exploding mountains.

This time for sure!

I only have a few more boards to put notches in. Which means that I will run out of things to do for the Kitty Kondo(tm) in time for the weekend. Which I am praying will be dry enough for the concrete nonsense so we can finish this darn thing whilst Meep is still a kitten.

Sigh.

At least I know she's loved in her current home, so there is that.

Meanwhile, I'm approaching 1K in the first words I shouldn't

Challenge #02352-F162: An Easy Mistake

A Havenworlder Crew tries their best to make the Ship Humans Birthday Party great.

They bake a cake for him.

The only problem is, that they used salt instead of sugar. -- Anon Guest

Human Neis could tell that her fluffles had knocked out all the stops. They had made the extra effort, for sure. Not just securing presents and decorations, but also gathering every ingredient they could for the party food, including completing all the steps necessary to create those foods.

All right. Here's the PLN

I do my blogging and Instant only vaguely out of order. Whoops. I got caught up in other things. Again.

After that's done, I spare a moment to make the bed in the spare room for Impending US guest, making sure the path is clear and there's some room for whatever luggage they have. Then I go out and saw holes into boards until noodle arms happen or lunch is necessary, whichever happens first.

After that is all done, or mostly done,

Challenge #02351-F161: Needs Salt and Pepper

Drug PSA's from America are always funny for me to watch. Esecially the Infamous "This is your Bain on Drugs" or the one with Peewee Herman, where he Talks about Crack.

I know IT IS a serious Problem, but i cant watch them without cracking Up (^^ teeh hee hee). Its Just so insane.

Can you make a Story about Footage of those being found by Havenworlders and they question a Human? Thanks in Advance.

For those, that have No Idea what I'm

Busy-arse day

Following a worse night. Like, shit. I was already exhausted from a combo of eff-off AM wake-up and stressing about the Kitty Kondo(tm)... but last night.

Ugh.

I went to bed at like 6:30, sure I was going to sleep the night. Nope. Twenty-minute naps at best, interspersed with waking up to either Beloved's television choices or Chaos on her giggle runs up and down the hall.

Until nearly firkin midnight. Like cheese, peeps. Have some mercy.

The rest of

Challenge #02350-F160: Scrounged Family

Scary looking friends are the best! -- Anon Guest

[AN: Inspired by this Tumblr post ]

Magic and technology can be imperceptibly similar. Technology and the occult... let's just say they have amazing similarities. Take the case of Servot 666 and the demon-possessed Silly Sally doll. Both do not do what they are supposed to. Both are considered unwanted by their Human creators. Both found each other in piles of wreckage slated for destruction.

There are millions of ways to make lasting friendships.

Overtime Extreme!

We have a complete-ish muddy hole. I have a whole bunch of boards and a PLN on how to mark them, cut them, and notch them according to PLN.

THEN we're in trouble.

If I can get all that sawing business done before tomorrow, we might make some actual firkin progress. Tomorrow, I'm having a tooth drilled. Tomorrow, I have my Beloved home to look after me because of said shenanigans. Tomorrow, we have a chance to leap some progress onto this

Challenge #02349-F159: Encounter After Bedtime

So, what would you do if there WAS a monster under your bed? -- Anon Guest

From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties, and things that go bump in the night... Saen took a deep breath. Dark plus imagination lead to some degree of fear, and tonight's degree was too harsh to handle. Crying about monsters under the bed was too childish, now. She was six. She could read and dress herself and pronounce funny dinosaur names and being scared of monsters

Working on the Footprint

We are now in progress on a University-dorm-room-sized rectangle that is going to contain the concrete bed of the Kitty Kondo(tm). Once we've moved all the grass and created a really interesting rectangular muddy hole, of course.

We're in overtime. I'm freaking out. Baby Meep is ready to have a new home, but her home isn't ready yet and everything is going so slowly and AUGH!

It's stressing me out, but I gotta keep going. Otherwise it'll never get done. It's

Challenge #02348-F158: Adjustment Phase

A human gets scared and jumpy around anyone who is angry, and yes, I mean anyone. -- Anon Guest

Humans have a reputation. It isn't necessarily bad to be seen as one of the biggest, toughest, roughest marshmallows in the universe, but it's still a reputation. Being a Human and having a reputation for being both a savage warrior and a sweetly nurturing protector does certain things to a crowd. Ange rather liked it. It meant that people didn't get too close.

But I Wanna...

I have to notch the last post in my queue, measure a bunch of boards and cut them to size because they don't match the measurements in the PLN, mark them up for notches and then calibrate the circular saw so the notches match the PLN.

But I wanna...

  • Stay in bed
  • Do nothing
  • Zone out on fids all day
  • Binge Good Omens again
  • Eat ice cream all day
  • Catch up on Critical Role
  • Just fucking chill.

Sigh.

But I can't. Because

Challenge #02347-F157: The Human Solution

Earth defense force/starship troopers based.

The galactic alliance, about the same time humans came in the alliance (but long enough for the alliance to realize humans' nature), is at war with a unintelligent but somehow space traveling insect race and are slowly losing. The alliance asks the humans for help to defeat them, asking for ships, attack vehicles, weapons, and soldiers. The humans misunderstand what they meant and take it as "Our equipment can only hold them, we need you humans

I did it!

Episode six of Inter-Mission is now a finished thing that is ready for export into Soundcloud. Yay.

Just because it can take me a week to do an episode, doesn't mean it will take a week. My sleep is unpredictable, and my time windows are varied. My plan is to 'push' to make a new episode as soon as one is out on the aether, so I still have my buffer zone.

I'm fast approaching an impasse with the Kitty Kondo. Notching

Dear InterNutter,

Since you have blessed us with all your lovely writings of the many wondrous worlds you have created while juggling life, kids and painful weather phenomenon I would like to give you something to enjoy reading instead of writing about. Although it's not mine to give, please enjoy it.

Thank you! -- Amberfox
