Day Zero

A 25-post collection

Thursday - Day Zero

One new case found and staying in Quarantine... BUT I stand by my "one arsehole" paranoia.

Today, I shall be recording images of ALL the paperwork related to Miss Chaos and sending them to the case manager. Our scanner is currently out of commission because the one compy it talks to is slowly dying. I'm not sure if we can get it to scan things any more.

Ugh.

Let's look at the headlines:

  • Queensland is building a new north-south highway
  • Muppet cuts interview short after being asked "the wrong" questions in "the wrong" tone
  • An east-west highway is for transporting steel slabs for great business
  • Political correspondent grilled for tweeting about whether ScoMo was "feeling smug"
  • HSC exam question meant to inspire creativity baffles students whose education has been centred solely around providing the correct answers [TBH that question would get an entire story using 90% of the words in the image]
  • One loyal pollster fudges the numbers so it looks like the Muppet is winning
  • Fermented corn noodles kept in a freezer kill nine members of the same family. I blame food hygiene rather than the whole "foreign food is bad m'kay" tone of the article

It's almost bus o'clock, so I pln on taking pictures of pieces of paper.

Saturday - Day Zero

Two new cases in quarantine, and that's twice as much as yesterday and now I am having a concern. One arsehole... The more cases there are, the more potential there is for a Karen to arise and cause a massive outbreak because restrictions are easing. Ugh.

We almost got there. We almost had freedom within our grasp. We almost had a completely clean Queensland... and then some fuckers had to think they were above the rules. Repeatedly. ARGH.

I'm getting back into

Friday - Day Zero

One more case discovered in quarantined folks coming in from overseas. There's still no community transmission, but... it only takes one arsehole to shit all over everything for everyone.

I've fed my starters and they're a bit on the thick side, so I added cream and coconut milk to the harvests and got some extremely runny batter cooking slowly in the background.

Very slowly, as it happens. Whoopsidoodle. Too much additional liquid.

The cats are not eating all their food, even the

Sunday - Day Zero

Another one from Overseas, boo. Queensland has been 28 days without community transition and that should mean that we can walk around without masks, but... Whilst we still get incoming from OS, it only takes one dickhead to ruin it for everyone.

As more "travel bubbles" open up between the countries/areas with some firkin SENSE, the pressure rises on the willfully ignorant to gain a modicum of such.

In the headlines:

  • QLD's border policy pisses off plague vectors, but sells well

Saturday - Day Zero

Darnit. Two more cases from overseas and detected in quarantine.

Semi-joyous news. The Muppet has apparently contracted the plague. If true, then I believe in Kharma even harder. His action - or rather, inaction - has actually been the chief factor in the chain of events that resulted in his repeated exposure and possible infection.

That said, it's entirely possible that this is one of his dodgy manipulative strategies to make the "libtards" look bad.

  1. Tweet screenshots of the people who have

Monday - Day Zero

This time the import case is from Western Australia. Sigh. It keeps on keeping on, but I think the person from WA was unaware they had the plague. Unlike too many Karens going around performing potentially lethal shenanigans.

Speaking of potentially lethal:

  • After attempting trade war and threatening battle, war, and sudden death, China has realised that Australia has something they want to prevent economic collapse - it's iron. Hail to Pig Iron Bob: The Second Lot
  • Recordings have emerged that reveal

Sunday - Day Zero

All three cases found yesterday are foreign imports and already in quarantine, but it still resets my counter to zero and it still makes me stay largely at home doing buggerall with myself. Sigh.

Living with a chronic lung condition is firkin hell during times of an air-transmissable plague.

And it's sad that I just wrote that as if these were multiple occurrences. The truth is, we are just over the first wave. The second will happen when we believe we're safe

Monday - Day Zero

Two new cases. One from overseas and the other a contact of a previous case. All in quarantine and secure.

Today is unfuckening nonsense, Instant Story, and maybe getting to one hundred words in my novel. If I feel like it. My writing has been a little in a Meh mood and school holidays don't help that along much.

It looks like the Long Haulers are in for a very long haul as some lingering symptoms look like they're going to be

Friday - Day Zero

One new case linked to a previous case, and already in quarantine. A week left, more or less, until the Brisbane anti-lockdown protests blow up in a spate of new cases.

Sigh.

The more it goes on, the more it keeps on going on. Blurgh. It's almost bus o'clock right now, so I will be working on potentially the last 100 words in my novel for two weeks because school holidays.

I'm back and my PLNs include: bread, unfuckening, and today's Instant.

Wednesday - Day Zero

Yesterday's case happens to be from overseas and already contained, so there's more hope for days free of idiocy from the infected.

Idiocy from everywhere else...

The Muppet's way of handling Climate change is the same as his way of handling the plague. Swear that it's going to go away and then singsong "I'm not listening, nerny nerny ner ner."

Sigh.

They're talking about opening up the borders again and it is honestly too soon. NSW and Victoria are still rife with

Sunday (Day Zero once more)

Three new cases all related to known ones. Eight days left for the Brisbane protests to blow up like the ones in Melbourne did. The only hope is that none of those anti-lockdown protestors had been anywhere near a contact site. Especially since a lot of them are hoaxers and therefore would not have been checking where they've been and when.

Lovely.

It was a long stream this morning, but I got another story segment finished in one of my Terrible Tiefling

Saturday (Day Zero)

Two new cases linked to previous ones and already in quarantine. Nine days -thereabouts- until the Brisbane protests blow up on us. It'll be battening down the hatches for sure when and if that happens.

Sigh.

  • China escalates their war footing with India
  • Some dudebro used the Covid-19 app to text a girl. The only way this could have been worse was if he opened with a dick pic
  • Quarantine clusterfucks continue as one family is living in an airport in some

Wednesday - Day Zero Butt

It's Day Zero again, but... the difference is that the one new case in Queensland is from overseas and already doing quarantine.

Meanwhile:

  • The pregnant woman who organised an anti-lockdown protest and was arrested for it now expects an apology from the Victorian Premier. I hope it goes, "I'm sorry you're that f*cking stupid," to be honest
  • Because there's still literally over a hundred new cases in Victoria on the daily. I know I said they celebrated going under twenty at

Sunday, and another Day Zero (sigh)

Honestly, I'm making note of what day it is to help me keep track. The groundhoggening is real, folks. I had a glorious slug day yesterday and I now have a crick in my neck from Gamer Lean.

Today's case is related to a known one. Yay?

You know that old console thing where you'd shift your body or tilt the controller to influence your performance on the screen? That. Only apparently I get right up to my monitor and tilt my

Shenanigans! (Day Zero)

There's outbreaks in North Queensland linked to sewerage somehow. I'm vaguing on the details but there's also a beach? I don't know if it's related, so don't go connecting any dots.

We've had a firkin WEEK of Day Zeroes and it's honestly shitting me off. There's like five different articles calling for all of Australia to "finish the job" and I bet that's going to involve locking up all the firkin Karen Squad.

So far:

  • It's a Student-Free day for Chaos
  • Mayhem
