A 1865-post collection

Friday, Day Zero, Lost that bet

Turns out the Proud Boys and company are not nearly as dedicated to their "cause" as any other protestors in the US. Nothing was lit on fire, but plenty of property was wrecked and the federal crime of MAIL THEFT was committed and confirmed with selfies by the idiots posted online. With the local police just letting them in and one confirmed tear gas grenade, they were treated with kid gloves all the way despite being worse than any given agent provocateur at more left-wing protests. That, and they wimped out as soon as it got too cold. The babies.

Further, the Repugnicans have thrown every single one of them under the bus by attempting to identify them as antifa. Nice.

Queensland has local transmissions again - in MeMum's neck of the woods. Fortunately, the vectors for transmission have been missed and Mum's bunkering for the interim. With luck, she'll be able to shop early and travel via Transitcare.

The whole world's gone mad and here are the symptoms:

  • Muppet finally acknowledges Biden's win shortly after his coup attempt fizzles on a cold night
  • Brisbane now in hard lockdown
  • Congress now plotting to use both impeachment and Amendment 25 to remove him from office ASAP
  • Plans for the riot were out in the open weeks ahead of the fact and authorities did bupkiss
  • Muppet throws Pence under the bus. Pence instantly backstabs back
  • Threats left in Democrat offices by Muppet's minions
  • Alongside blood and piles of "debris"
  • People now angry about the death of Trump loyalist who died in the riot
  • ScoMo refuses to upbraid Muppet for his actions
  • Facebook, Twitch, Twitter all ban Muppet, some indefinitely
  • Death toll from the riots now up to four, with three due to unspecified "medical emergencies"
  • Don't believe the accounts that say the mob overwhelmed the police, the police fucking pulled aside the barriers and all but held their hands to escort them in. There's fucking FOOTAGE of this
  • Entire world except a select few condemns the Muppet and his actions on the day of the coup attempt
  • 14YO teen girl allegedly runs off with 15YO boyfriend
  • There's a new way to cut mangoes and the world is up in arms
  • Even Australia's La Nina weather is hotter than previously
  • ScoMo slammed for being a wussie
  • There's now a map outlining when you can expect the plague vaccine
  • One of the people who died in the riots was a dude who helped plan it all. There may be justice after all

I have been hanging on to a prediction since the Muppet tweeted "stand back and stand by" to his minions and it goes like this:

It's 2023. Green power technology is going up all over the map. Meanwhile the US Congress is still debating the protocol vis-a-vis executing a former president for treason. Donald Trump "languishes" in a luxury prison made strictly to contain him and him alone. He is allowed to tweet for good behaviour. He hasn't tweeted in two years.

Given all the noise that happened in 2020 and all the posted shitpost predictions coming true, I'm not sharing this via Tungl. I'd rather have it over here, where I'm allowed to be wrong.

I'm much better at fiction.

Thursday, Day Zero, USA imploding live on YouTube

The Proud Boys and other racist x-phobic shitholes are rioting in Washington DC on the insistance of the Lame Duck a'Lorange in the Whitehouse. People have been shot. Bombs have been found. The Muppet has told them all that he loves them. It's a clusterfuck in a dumpster fire and I knew this was going to happen.

It's been a long time in coming, but it's come. FBI and SWAT teams have entered the Capitol and it's a coin toss as to

Wednesday, Day Zero, Things be fucked up

Two new cases today, taking the total up to seventeen. Definite rock-hidey time. Except the kitties will need a refresh of their kibbles, so going out for essential supplies is somewhere in my calendar.

Today is Wednesday, so part of my agenda is to capture a free-range Beloved and acquire their help in unfucking my Firefox issue. I may also consult about getting my iPad to act like a tablet for the software I own on Windoze. The screen mirror obliterated the

Tuesday, Day Zero, random cursing in the background

Five cases today, taking the total up to fifteen. I wanna hide in a bunker.

I'm trying to get onto Firefox, but signing in via another device is proving... problematic. I have an account confirmed on my PC, but getting it transferred to my lappy is... HRRNNNNGGH... Literally can't log in to the other device to complete the process and it's infuriating.

Sigh.

I might have to brute force this. Make a different account, then use that on this compy and then

Monday, Day One, Once more around again

Today, I am unfuckening the house. Today, I may get as far as transferring all my open tabs to Firefox because it's one of the few browsers that doesn't sell my data to the highest bidder. I already have search engines that actually do some good in the world, so I might as well complete the process.

Now all I need is a cloud drive not run for profit and I'll be set.

I'd be writing all my books in Novlr if

Sunday, Day Zero, sloth

Thirteen total cases, the new one today is yet another import from overseas, captured in quarantine, and I'm wont to hide under a rock until the case count goes back to single figures again.

I am going to write my Instant and then take a hot bath and then sleep. Great PLN. Hope I get to go through with it.

A glimpse at the headlines:

  • Outbreaks all over the firkin place
  • Sweden now under criticism as fiscal success is paid in actual

Saturday, shenanigans

I'm not looking at the stats, I'm not looking at the news. I am, however, looking at less than an hour to get my story out there, so it's an interesting day.

We're on the road and headed for Scenic Coominya RSN.

Whooshka.

Let's get some narrative done.

And if it isn't out in an hour? It's probably posted on roaming charges. You're welcome. Stick a Ko-fi into my kitty if you can. Thanks in advance.

So Long, 2020, and thanks for all the excitement

Now that we can truly appreciate boredom, I would like to invite all the calamities that visited us in 2020 to please rack off and never darken our doorsteps again. 2020 has been a LONG century and I'd rather not live in such interesting times for the rest of my life.

That said, just because the year from hell is over, doesn't mean that all the troubles and messes go with it. Three new cases have turned up from overseas, all in

Thursday, Day Zero, hey look I made it

Two new cases keeping the total case count up to eleven. All overseas visitors and captured in quarantine. But now we also have the virulent UK and South African strains to concern ourselves with. Huzzah. We already have enough people acting like Karens all over the place. Queensland's borders are definitely shut until NSW and Victoria get their fecal matter organised for once and for all.

If we all did what New Zealand did, this entire mess would have been over by

Wednesday, Day Zero, at the closing of the year

Two new cases, the total's down to eleven, so that's a hope for tomorrow. I'm going to actually write a Wordpress Wednesday this week because it's the last one of this year. I should review 2020.

"Half a star, would not live it again," is not going to cut it, but it will be somewhere in the opening paragraphs.

That's my sense of humour and I have to live in it.

In the headlines:

  • Muppet wins "most admired man" in the US.

Tuesday, Day Zero, big day

There's FIVE new cases today. They're all from overseas and caught in quarantine, and the number is back up to thirteen. Yeeks.

I hate it when the total cases are in double figures. Yes, I am aware that other nations have it worse than us, but still. This pairs well with the news that the UK variant of the plague has come to Adelaide.

Brief reprise of Huzzah, We're All Going to Die by Morons...

I have unfuckening PLN'd and Patreon stuff

Monday, Day One, a breather

The grand post-crimbolio unfuckening is happening tomorrow. This means that I'll be arranging all of that and mixing in Patreon stuff as well.

Fun.

I may have to throw out food. Not my favourite thing. The rest of the family is not a fan of sweet things and the sweet things are going off.

Sigh.

I'm going to write an Instant. I may post some Patreon nonsense early. I don't know. I'll see how I feel about things when I get there.

Saturday, Day Zero, Nonsense

Two new cases today, taking the total cases up to twelve, today. I did not check the totals yesterday, hence the difference.

I'm still not going near the headlines without a 40' barge pole. It's bound to be crabonkers out there. 'Tis the season.

Today, at a later hour, I shall be driving MeMum back to her humble abode. An event which poor Jolie is looking forward to because she hates it when strangers are in the house. Poor little fuzzball's terrified

Thursday, Day Zero, PLN'ng

So here's the agenda:

  1. Unfuck the house
  2. Fetch MeMum

Somewhere in there, I get to:

  1. Write my instant.

This is placed in order of importance. Whether today's story appears sometime before nightfall or soon-to-now.

Muppet now has a tinfoil-hat level conspiracy theorist arguing voter fraud in court. I wonder where I can livestream the judges laughing at this. He's going to keep on going, ISTG... "save your MAGA hats, the Muppet will rise again" etc. Bleurgh.

Let's see what I can do
