Feast Day

A 7-post collection

Saturday, Day Zero, Nonsense

Three new cases, but the total is down to eleven and all cases are from overseas. There's outbreaks in Sydney and once again the Queensland borders are closed.

Sigh.

I'm picking MeMum up on Yulemas Eve. A day that shall also include some tech support nonsense to help with apps and other malarky. Everyone wants everyone to use the app these days and MeMum is an old-school luddite who has only just recently got used to googling stuff.

Sorry, Mum, but it's true.

These things happen to people born into the era before television. Be kind out there, folks. Enjoy the chance to educate and flex at the same time.

I'm still horking up chunks, but the good news is that they're clear of concerning chroma. No need for antibiotics. Yay.

Muppet's pulling his legal losing shenanigans again. This time plotting to move into Mar-a-lago despite judges in the past saying he can't live there full-time because he turned it into a resort. Clearly, this is an alleged man who thinks the rules do not apply to him.

I'm especially fond of the dude who claims that the Muppet taking residence in Mar-a-lago will tank their property values.

I'm writing today's tale and having some carbs and getting an early night because tomorrow, there is stream. At the end of the stream, I also collect some delivered groceries that are mostly Crimbolio related. Lots of nibbles for the party.

We always do too much food on Christmas.

Tell you one thing for free - bugger the Woolies Lobster. You can only get it in the shop itself. Can't order any in advance or anything. It's like they want people having a stouche over some otherwise overpriced shellfish. Fuck 'em. Not playing.

Let's do some fiction.

ADDENDUM: When ordering the Christmas Cake, I nearly got this thing for prank potential, but Beloved is ever my voice of sanity. I love that they are such. They love that I need one :D

Saturday, Day One, I should try to chill

The spreader case in Adelaide once again employed the "genius" tactic of lying to the track and trace people. Something he would not be punished for because that sort of bullshit is still not a crime.

The fuck?

Braaargh...

I finished KOSBOB and am veering away from anything at all related to looking at novel writing until after the week is done, and even then I'm seeing how I feel about it by then.

I'm waiting for the fire in my heart

Saturday - Day One

No new cases. I breathe. I also continue to count down for the last week of Brisbane's anti-lockdown protests causing more lockdown. China continues to show how strong it is by threatening the entire world around it and the Muppet continues to be an idiot in regards to maintaining his hold on his tinfoil crown.

He's been called out repeatedly on just letting US citizens die so he could reap the rewards from the market boost.

It's all a clusterfuck. I have

Saturday - Day One!

Finally and at last. One. DAY. With zero nonsense from the Karen Squad, anyone related to the Karen Squad, or anyone within six degrees of anything the Karen Squad might have breathed on.

I still remember when we were within two days of Day Fourteen. All the same, this morning's news. is a relief from all the Day Zeroes that have been happening.

Here's to many more days of no plague.

Yesterday had me all over everywhere. I learned about ReTurn -

Saturday Feast Day

I have had a lazy morning, not even getting out of bed before nine. Gorging myself on some remaining carbohydrates.

The news is full of false claims by the Muppet about how excellent he is, instantly followed by fact checks that say, actually no he isn't. The lack of cases in the US is directly related to the lack of testing.

So in the continuing clusterfuck, the news about the plague itself goes thus:

  • The virus can persist on surfaces for 24

Apologies and PLNs

First up, I forgot to publish yesterday's free story teaser. Whoops. Y'all knew about it from Facebook, Tumblr, Medium, Twitter, and Pillowfort anyhow. Right?

Well. Not Pillowfort, because it's still in Beta and I have zero followers. If you're on there, please follow me. Soon as it's properly released, I'll add the link over on my site menu.

I got a bad review for Comes Around. I missed the mark in big ways, according to them. Their opinion. And face it, what

Aftermath

Okay, so sugar and lots of it does really terrible things to me. I have learned this now.

Following a breakfast of a Lindt dark choc bunny, a Guylian sampler1 and some sugar-free creaming soda... I had asthma, loose stools, and trouble staying upright.

At least until we headed off to Maccas for lunch for some grease-burgers and, in my case, the promisingly disgusting Cadbury Cream Egg McFlurry. It was actually more of a sundae with caramel sauce and definitely-not-cadbury-flakes on
