Me and my derpy, derpy head

I swear to sixteen heavens of choice that I actually posted that blog entry that just went up. I can't even find when it was supposed to be posted. I'm that firkin fogged.

I've been sleeping fine. It's the relentless waking up early that does it to me. And I've been trying to regulate myself but... I need an extra half hour or so after I wake up and that's not easy to accomplish or do.

And for that, there's coffee.

I'll do the tea thing tonight. That should help a great deal. Have a cuppa and zonk off.

Assuming I don't zonk off today.

Which is likely, because the seasonal heat just makes me want to aestivate the day away.

I have a honkton of coins to get counted from MeMum. She had a solid five kilos of shrapnel in her bag and she insists that she needs all of the huge weight in her bag all year. But when she defends herself, it's always the multitool and only the multitool that gets mentioned.

I don't get it.

But then, I also managed to get myself down to wallet, glasses case, and a few bare essentials because my body was not liking me for having weight on my shoulders at all.

In other news, I managed to (barely) make a one weeks budget last us two weeks, so whacko on that count. I owe my Friendo another chicken and the day is already too hot to walk to the shops, as evidenced by my summer sleep need.

And I really need to get my story for today done before I derp again.

My derp moments over the past 24 hours

  • Forgot I had to write 1000 words yesterday until nearly bedtime
  • Forgot what exact time Mayhem's appointment was and arrived WAY too early
  • Forgot to do this firkin blog

Yep. Three time winner, right here.


At least I don't have any more work to do today.

We get money today

Huzzah. Because we got smacked in the face with a $600+ maintenance bill, last week, we were out of ready money until today. Which meant surviving off of skerricks from last week's cash that I still had in my wallet.

It's do-able. I've done it before. I've dipped into the Kitty1, and my fun money sometimes. I've even frisked the couch for enough to buy a meal. I have never and will never take my kids' money. I'd rather starve.

Ok let's get this sorted

I've scheduled my posts on Steemit again, with the goal to making earlier and earlier story posts. As near as I can figure, the Rules for the scheduler go thusly:

  • You are not allowed to post close to the current time of day
  • The soonest you can post is an hour past the next hour to come by
  • You can only post two hours apart
  • It is and forever shall be on US time

With all that in mind, it was in

Executive Dysfunction R Us

I have come to realise that Miss Chaos and I share more than anxiety. There's also a healthy dollop of executive dysfunction in there. Well. Not that healthy. It's a bad thing to have and it can mess up your life.

For the peeps in the cheap seats, Executive Dysfunction is when you consciously know you have to do a thing, but there's a disconnect between knowing you have to do it and actually doing the thing.

Sometimes, it's like this comic

It's a day of rest

So of course I woke up in the wee small with heebie-jeebie nightmares. I actually dreamed that Mayhem got so good at calligraphy, that he was being investigated for forging money(!).

And our dollarydoos aren't that easy to forge. Seriously. They're plastic. You can't just fake it with the right kind of paper. And the era of hand-forging is... like... in the 1870's ffs.

Then I got upset about a Fandom thing [Steam Powered Giraffe are moving on with their Malfunction video,

Poo bum wee

I just spent all day trying to come up with something clever and winding up with fail.

And then, to top it off, I tried to make Spore work on my Mac again.

I know there’s worse things to happen to people than spending all day on a computer, but… I was trying my hardest to be clever and the universe just kept on reminding me that I’m stupid.

I feel pretty damn worthless right now.
