A 8-post collection

It's Wednesday and I'm a dummins

I don't have a pre-arranged topic for this Wordpress Wednesday, so I have to think one up before I can post one, I guess. I could plausibly do How My Brain Allegedly Works or My Routine Is Not Your Routine. Or something about how my battery is still low despite all my efforts to charge it.

I'll find something to bitch about, and maybe get a couple of pages out of it.

Maybe I could gas about Murder Dollhouse again, since that was my goal with Wordpress in the first place. Generate some buzz for a book I haven't even started yet.

Hell, I might even get as far as a first chapter to post in my Patreon, and some teaser paragraphs for Wordpress. I don't know.

I don't know a lot of things.

The good news is that I now know how to initiate the NDIS signup. I'll start with Miss Chaos and attempt Mayhem and then myself. Son and I don't need as much in the way of assistance, but being in the system will help if need ever does arise.

If we get rejected, we get rejected and that's that. However, NDIS promises that they're filling the gaps, so we'll see.

I have to ring them during business hours and that might cut in on my writing time. I'm doing my best over here, I swear.

I'm just a huge, tired dummins despite getting way more than eight hours' sleep last night.

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.

Derpy McDerpington

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.
