Realm of the InterNutter

Thoughts, stories and ideas.

Uuuuuuuuuggghhhh...

Yesterday was a complete and total fuckup. Today's not looking that fantastic either. Like... 90% of my life was in transit to get something else done.

Not just the brat run, but a shrink appointment [I'm still anxious, big shock] and fetching my long-lost lappy back from the Apple Store.

Good news, though, I got my lappy back for free. Which meant that I was free to go pick up some necessary sanity supplies. AKA cheese and Halo Top tubs.

By the time I got back home and got myself around a satisfying lunch, it was time to watch for Chaos' bus, and then go fetch Mayhem from his educational purgatory.

Small surprise that it took me twelve gorram hours to get my story out.

Thankfully, I shouldn't need that long today. I hope. My site went down and my efforts to fix the problem made things worse and -yeah- I needed to sleep that noise off.

This morning, I discover that the five stories I recorded were the same five stories I recorded for Episode 5 of Inter-Mission and I had just enough time to record one of the actual five. I might have time to edit that one episode into the new and improved Episode 6.

Maybe.

I still have four more stories to record and I think I have a piece of music for the interlude. I need to consult with Mayhem to see if I actually have anything.

For now, it's the usual morning mess. Fingers crossed, today doesn't get any messier.

Challenge #02344-F154: A Reason for the Season

Due to the Fact, that tomorrow is the 1st of May (Tag der Arbeit) and subsequently free of Work for me, this Prompt came into Existence:

How would free days be regulated in Space? Different Countries and Cultures have different Holidays/Offdays and Rules. How would Ship humans deal with it? How their Alien Crewmate?

Embuggerance

Three out of the four corner posts that I need to notch are warped. This wasn't a problem in the middle, but it is a problem at the ends. I lack the muscular strength to hold down a post to the point where the limiter actually hits the line, and the accuracy to actually hit the line with my own limiting of the saw depth.

So I thought I'd disassemble the problem garden bed.

Problem 1: It's fastened with big-ass screws

Duty, Honor, Sacrifice.

I don't know if you have heard of Saragarhi before, but it would be nice to see a story from you over the subject.

Have a nice day. -- Anon Guest

[AN: I've seen the Extra History on the topic. It's a tragedy]

It was a small station. Only meant to relay information from one defensive outpost to another. Most of the staff there were locals, and they had allied

Another Early Morning

A nifty combo of full bladder, overheating, and Beloved's snoring had me awake at half past one this AM. Not the best start in the world, but at least I got five more stories recorded for Inter-Mission and I got some episodes edited for Oh My Mods that just sneaked in under the wire. Yay.

I probably won't have time for more, as it is fast approaching the hour in which my little darlings shall be awake and needing their internet fix.

Challenge #02342-F152: Skill Building Exercise

A school with different Races Like Humans, Havenworlders and other Deathworlders have a Projectweek.

Of course at the End of the Week the Pupils present their Projects each one at a small stand and get their Grades for their Work.

(Go with this anywhere you want and have a great Day ^^) -- Anon Guest

In a Mixed Toughness schooling environment, certain things are forbidden. Sudden shocks can be bad for Havenworlders, and certain Deathworlders play by using shocks on each other. The

Okay...

We have all the upright posts marked, and I am prepared to put the notches in. Yay. We have a week of sunshine-ish weather in the cards, so we might get the concrete in. I hope we can do this because my impending kitty is a week away from being allowed away from her mum.

I got one good day to get as much notching done as I can. Because the next step is construction. We have nuts and bolts. We have

Challenge #02341-F151: The Perils of Convenience

Imagine a Shop for Adventurers that sells nearly everything.

Including Scrolls to Talk to other Races and even with Animals and invokal Things.

Of course those Scrolls have a Price, however they can be found on Dead People or in the Dungeon. -- Anon Guest

The chain was called Infinite Needs, and catered exclusively to Adventurers. The secret was that each pokey little shop front lead to a pocket dimension of a warehouse that was, theoretically, endless[1]. The shop had already

Teh PLN

'Tis Saturday. Beloved is home. I have done all that I dast do on my only vis-a-vis wood and cutting holes therein.

There is, theoretically, plenty of time to build most of the dang Kitty Kondo(tm). HOWEVER... I know my Beloved. So far, all weekends to work on the thing have been eaten up by going out to acquire shit. 3/4 of all useful time doomed to travelling to some Hardware Emporium somewhere and faffing about for hours as they

Challenge #02340-F150: Situation Under Control

During an enemy attack on their cargo ship.

Human: "Be lucky you still have legs, because I collect those ! :-) "

Alien Crewmate: "Can you please Stop quoting Isaak from Battleborn?"

Human: "It works though! Just look at those wannabe Pirates!!" -- Anon Guest

There is a saying, Human is as Human does, and it has a multitude of meanings. In this case, the Human is one thin moral line away from outright sociopathy and psychopathy at the same time.

"You're lucky you

LAUNCH!

We have liftoff! Inter-Mission is officially on the interwebs and now what do I do?

...make episode 6 of course.

Well, yes, but I also have to tell everyone it exists, and I have also done that bit. If you check the menu, you'll see it there in all caps, right under "Buy my books!"

I have two followers already. This is kind of intense. Fingers crossed, this gets someone to capital-N Notice me (senpai)... maybe get a deal somehow.

I dunno.

Challenge #02339-F149: Taking Account

Political Hopeful scouting for votes and says "Those Words" - "How can I help?" You can spin this anyway you like. -- Anon Guest

There's two ways to be a Politico of the People. One is to take the vocal majority's word and run with it all the way to a populist poll... and the other is to actually listen to all of the people. The latter is far more difficult to do and harder to accomplish, so many Politico's don't even

Okay. I can do this...

I just put the skeleton of a plot together for books one and two of Kingdom of Sand. Fantastic, but I still haven't worked out our heroes, how magic works, or anything of the ilk.

I should do that sometime RSN. I'm thinking Equivalent Exchange plus Personal Will and True Awareness equals magical powers and the ability to change what is. It should be tremendously difficult and maybe two of the party at most has a nebulous handle on the stuff.

Challenge #02338-F148: Words May Never

They meant to hurt you with words and bring you down by demeaning you. You became inspired to do something entirely different. -- Anon Guest

Say something long enough, it becomes true. Words like weirdo, freak, idiot, and so forth don't hurt in small doses, but if they are said often enough, by enough people, to one, that one can easily believe they are worthless. It happens so often, but it does not happen to all.

Consider Suz' Mayberry, iconoclast of Elderwine

Another early start..

I took half an hour to get out of bed this AM, but I did it, and I've caught up on most of my bullshit. That means my Patrons have stuff to read, my Wordpress peeps have a new thing to peruse, and I am now doing my blogging.

Soon, I shall set up the circular saw so I can put holes in things. I don't anticipate more than one post per diem unless I have Beloved's help, but I'm getting there.
