A 8-post collection

Monday, Nebulous PLNs

Charlie 3 is having his official birthday bash today and people are not allowed to complain about how their kids are starving during the multi-billion-dollar events that are sure to be going on.

But that's apparently okay because of the one-sixteenth of British economy derived from tourists and tabloids devoted to the royals 9_9

[MeMum's a loyalist and I will for sure hear this argument today. People are STARVING so an elderly man can wear a fancy hat with diamonds on that the OG country wants back. But never mind that! Monarch's Foreshore and tourist dollars...]

If I was that fucking rich, I'd calculate what my taxes should have been and use that dosh to create public firkin works.

::steps off soapbox:: Ahem.

I'll be doing a pseuducku bird today, and if I'm feeling it, summarising a chapter.

Of course there will be a half hour AFG to write the epic.

BUT... my Beloved spent another night away and will be returning to my arms today. All going well, of course. I'm prepared for the dreaded reality to fuck things up for me.

I can hope not, but hope doesn't change reality.

I'll feel better after some haptic feedback. BUT it's currently not available, so I get on with fiction.

The meme may be delayed because I cannot access the Fediverse.

Challenge #03725-J072: Seeds of Hope

How do you define power? Is it the ability to hold someone's life in your hands? Is it the amount of magic you have? Or is it how physically strong and fast you are? Is it your intelligence and how much you know? No, I don't think so. Power is, and is not, all of those things. But more to the point, it is about being able to reach out, even a little bit, and help others in need. Remember, the smallest

Saturday, Day 0, Today maybe?

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. Forty-one active cases, thirty-seven of those are in hospital

Beloved has had some very rough days at the office, so to speak. So progress on Mobile Instants has come to a screeching halt. If Beloved can't figure out the unriddling of the problem, then I have NO hopes.

Fingers crossed that the unriddling happens today.

Also in my PLNs:

  1. The mandatory Instant
  2. Attending the first entirely online writers' convention
  3. Eating a lot of carbage

Day Two! Whoo!

Watching a little number climb has become exciting again. I'm gaining some hope at firkin last. Things might actually begin to look up.

In personal news, I actually finished a story I started. It was one of the things I've been writing for fun. Not anything I've been writing with money in goal. Meh. I'm taking any singular win I can grab, these days.

Now onto the losers:

Six Days Virus-free in QLD

I've been keeping tabs on Queensland Health's page about the cases in my allegedly sunny state1 link here. So far, for six days, there have been no new cases. I might actually get to relax very soon.

Won't that be nice?

In the news today, Victoria has had spikes left right and center. This is possibly in direct relation to all those idiots who wanted to open up when the plague was still raging, and then refusing to enact safety protocols

When we can look at another and not see their skin
Or their gender
Or their tattoos
Or their piercings
Or their hairstyle
Or their personal preferences
Or their politics
Or their social status

When we can talk to another and not argue
But accept
That everyone has a point of view

When we can see a task that needs to be done
And roll up our sleeves
And pitch in
Regardless of our own status
And get something done

When we
