A 22-post collection

Tuesday, Day 2, Patreon

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! We have twelve active cases, seven of which are in hospital. Australia has moved up to 76% first vaxxed, almost 52% fully vaxxed. Queensland is at 45% fully vaxed. My spawn are getting their second jabs next month. Yay. On separate days. Boo.

Thanks to Tale Foundry being back in action I have a NEW WORK for my $5 tier over in Patreon. Yay. The one person who pays for that should be glad. I hope.

I'm doing okay on the antibiotics and steroids. Yay. Still need Max this morning, but the breathing is so much easier. I get my prescriptions renewed this Thursday and a three-figure meds purchase immediately after. Sigh.

It's expensive to breathe, sometimes.

In the news:

  • Apparently there's been two mystery Covid detections between yesterday noon [where my figures come from] and now. Dag
  • Brexit and plague cause food and fuel shortages in the UK, which causes riots
  • Simone Byles can't catch a break
  • HJ's CEO bets the antivaxxers will crumble when they finally realise there's consequences for their inactions
  • Some fuckwit murdered a teacher in the UK
  • "Promising young man" with music career found guilty of sexual assault
  • Been to Maccas? You could have got Covid with that
  • Train strike imminent. Just firkin pay the people a fair wage, geez
  • Yet another convicted rapist with a foreign name is released to the public. Not a peep about the eurocentric-named rapists also released from jail
  • Aussie scientists discover non-toxic treatment alternative to chemo. ScoMo to sell it to megaglobopharmacorp for fifty cents
  • Dan Murphy's recall
  • Some fuckwit killed a student and left her body in a dumpster
  • Bounty hunter after Gabby Petito's alleged murderer boyfriend
  • Netflix made an expensive movie
  • Google's also racist
  • Canny parents buying their kids shares
  • HJ's going after KFC
  • Plague now impacting our ability to import stuff
  • My birthday's coming up and I have NOTHING planned

Anyway. Onwards to story.

Tuesday, Day 0, Jabs at Last!

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. Twenty-eight total active cases, with eighteen in hospital. The kids are getting their first jabs today and myself and Beloved are getting our second ones tomorrow.

Which means that the next couple of weeks are going to be "fun". Especially when we're also aiming to unfuck the house and yard.


I have to do the Patreon stuff after the kids have been pierced. Because getting them organised is the big challenge this AM.

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: Four new cases, two of each. Twenty-six total active cases, eighteen of those are in hospital and one's in the ICU. Lovely.

Both the spawn are down with a random sickness. Lurgi has struck the household and it's only a matter of days before it strikes at me.

We've rescheduled the big jab for a week later and crossing our fingers.

I don't have an awful lot for Patreon, but I'm doing my best. I'm pretty sure my patrons understand.

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: five new cases, all imports. There's twenty total active cases, fourteen of those are in hospital.

I have a process for going through the edits for Adapting and it is thus:

Stage one - accept all the uncommented errata fixes.
Stage two - get through the commented ones until things are resolved
Stage three - repeat stage two until polished.

I can do stage one on the next chapter whilst refining the previous one to a mirror shine. Yay. And

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague News: Two new cases, one of each. Thirty-eight total active cases, with twenty in hospital and two in the ICU.

I'm running out of stuff to add to my Patreon pages and it sucks. The after-effects of Lockdown Brain are catching up with me.

I'm doing my best.

In the news:

  • Apparently new freedoms are coming for NSW despite Knomiras to the contrary
  • Victoria's plague numbers leaked
  • USA warns Aus about more plague nonsense
  • Taliban calls live TV to vomit hate

Tuesday, Day 1, Shrinky Bzns

Plague news: NO NEW CASES! One hundred and twenty-nine total active cases, with thirty-four in hospital, one in the ICU.

It is so nice to see the numbers dwindling. I can breathe a little easier even if I am still wearing a mask.

I have already posted my story for Tale Foundry but my lucky Patrons will be seeing the extended version that I had to cut because word limits.

Today is not a good day for internets in this household so

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon and Waffles

Plague news: Five new cases - four local, one import. One hundred and fifty-three total active cases, sixty-three are in hospital, and one of those is in the ICU.

I attempted to make waffles out of Beloved's Fail-Levann and the result was.... eatable... I guess. Better with tastier accessories IMHO. The waffles turned out floppy and the pancakes were a load of crepe. Ah well.

I might actually acquire some buttermilk and try the real recipe with my starter harvest this weekend.

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon PLNs

Plague news: Two new cases, both imports. I heard that anyone near Kippa-ring needs to get themselves tested because of one agro Knomira. Lovely. Thirty-six active cases, thirty-three in hospital and two in ICU.

I'm still not saying Queensland has a handle on things. Last time I said that, a Knomira escaped the net and spread the plague all over Brisvegas. I'm waiting for Doughnut Day to go at least halfway towards the full twenty before I declare that.

All the same,

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: seven new cases, four local, three imports. Forty-seven active cases, thirty-eight in hospital. So a bunch of people are recovered? Maybe? I can hope.

My personal schedule is now adjusted. So now I bumbletumble about my morning nonsense, stream, and then write this thing. Streaming at 6AM is do-able, but only when I get up at 5.

I'll pay for it today, and get used to it tomorrow.

I have written some Tiefling tales and already done the Foundry tale.

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Plague news: Five new cases, all imports. Thirty-two total, twenty-seven in hospital.

That's some scary numbers. The waves happen overseas, but they still wash up on our shores.

I have some Patreon stuff to share - yay. And some screencaps to make for the program progress. And five hundred words to write. And an Instant to create.

In the news:

  • Gold Logie winner hit by a car
  • TV Host accused of imitating That Scene Sharon Stone Did
  • China attacking crypto
  • More concern

Tuesday, Day 1, Patreon

Plague news: 11 total cases, ten in hospital. There may or may not be a sudden leap in these numbers because system maintenance.

It's Patreon Day again, and I have no idea what I'm posting. Yaaaaayyy...

Last night was HELL for me. I've had persistent hip pain that may or may not be caused by a killer combo of sitting very still on the kneeling chair plus sitting cross-legged for absolute HOURS also motionless. I need to be kinder to my musculature.

Tuesday, Day 1, GET SET!

Plague news: no new cases, fourteen active cases, all of them are in hospital.

Today's the big day. It's Fixit Day. The cabinet guy is coming around in the morning and the plumber in the evening. No, I do not know how that is supposed to work either. Apparently, it's going to. I don't even know.

Today's half hour will be adding some code to allow me to input tags. Now that I know what bits of the code I'm using actually

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon Day

One new case, an import. Eighteen total, and seventeen in hospital. It's less than it was, but it could also get big again. Today's the day I should be googling bathroom rennos to get the vanity fixed in my slo-mo disaster area. Whee fun.

After I recover from THAT, I need to talk to the doctor's about getting the family jabbed against the plague and what would be best for Beloved (diabetic) and myself (asthmatic) as well as the kids (who have

Tuesday, Day 0, Patreon

Three new cases, all imports. Eighteen total cases, with fifteen in the hospital. Three chilling out in a hospital. There's plague ships and plague planes and aaaaaauuugghh...

My story yesterday hurt one of my readers and that's never a good feeling. My bad for not being able to imagine a hero in the setting. So today's not off to a fantastic start for this nerd. I can't rewrite the story. It's a terrible road marker on my learning to be a better

Tuesday, Day 1, Patreon Day

No new cases, no new imports. Yay. Twenty-five total cases, and all of them are in hospital. Blurgh.

I'm going to be copy-pasting stuff into Patreon before Miss Chaos wakes up. I got some writing done, but nothing much in the finished state of things. Alas.

With luck and good fortune, I might be able to do Does Not Compute today. Luck was not on my side yesterday, but today might be the charm. We shall see.

In the news:
