Long Day

A 4-post collection

Monday, Day 0, Long Monday

Plague news:

  • 11 957 new cases
  • 85 112 total active cases
  • 863 hospitalisations
  • 47 in the ICU
  • 10 new deaths
  • 8 606 total cases in first nations' people

It's Long Monday, I really don't feel like unriddling an Excell spreadsheet -__- And technically, it's Long Sunday. Everything and it's cousin conspired to keep me awake when I was trying to sleep, yesterday afternoon.

Believe me I am getting some sleep today or I may yet strangle something.

IF I get anything extra done before tomorrow, I am calling it a bonus.

In the news:

  • Aussie hostie says the nation's management of Omicron is a "bin fire" compared to the tough restrictions of New Zealand
  • More heatwave for Australia
  • Parentals mad about the school rules for the plague
  • University has list of banned words. They have learned nothing from Tumblr's earlier attempts to do so
  • US move that could finally stop Russia
  • Lady donates kidney to boyfriend, gets dumped ten months later
  • Knomira threatens to call the police on... small children riding their bikes on the footpath. Which is NOT illegal.
  • New nontoxic coating that can stop fire is inspired by lava

Now I post stuff. Then I nap. I hope. PLEASE let me sleep -_-

Whee fun.

Also one of my nail varnishes just

Monday Morning Extended Version

Fortunately, my Beloved did some of the good math and figured out I should fall asleep REAL early so I could get enough rest to face my long-arse day with at least vigor.

It's worked. I have some tinned caffeine to imbibe when I flag later on today. I have yet to

Challenge #01314-C219: The Long Days

These things are sent to try us and they certainly do. -- Anon Guest

All of the longest days start in the wee small hours. Haven't you noticed? They begin with the nightmare. The terrors. The loud neighbour who accidentally or on purpose blasts five seconds of noise into the air. Or the telemarketer who calls without realising the time where you live. Or the obnoxious party relative who drunk-dials you for no real reason, or under the mistaken assumption that your
