Tired

A 9-post collection

Sunday, Day 0, Heart-shaped Chocolate Day

Seven total cases, with the newest two coming in from overseas and isolated in quarantine. It's the day to share sweet treats, so I stayed on the Keto wagon yesterday so I could indulge today.

I initially pln'd to get some hours of sleep, but MeMum had a panic attack regarding her new phone and what it was doing at the time. So I haven't had much sleep and will probably nap through 90% of Valentine's Day.

Fun.

The news as it's happening at Fuckoff in the morning:

  • Big flap over being threatened with job loss if you refuse the plague jab
  • Tennis player tests positive to plague after leaving Aus. Hey maybe inviting people to play together from all over the infected world was a bad idea?
  • Plague after-effects are looking horrific
  • Muppet continues throwing a tantrum over being a big loser
  • Mystery surrounding plague origins continues
  • Impeachment defence can't answer simple questions

I am going to be present for Toasty's stream and if I can get story done before I fall over, well and good.

Otherwise, it might not be out for absolute ages.

I'm wrecked.

Thursday - Day Four

Beloved will be going to work later today, so I will be recording a more audible version of the tutorial I did on Tuesday. I live, I learn.

Today's brain hack will involve closing the compy room door so that I will be in Recording Mode. We'll see if it works.

With luck, I'll have a video that MeMum can use. Everything explained simply and easily and the why of it as well. I have to make things VERY clear. Obviously.

Late Start

I had fun at Toasty's stream and got to see some wonderful art happen. Now there's a vid-of-progress up on her Patreon and life is good because there is potential to share.

I managed to get halfway along on Episode 17 of Inter-Mission and as a bonus, some kind soul has listened to every episode. Huzzah. I have one confirmed listener.

One is where it starts, friends. Dear listener - please spread the word if you like my podcast. Even if you

Busy-arse day

Following a worse night. Like, shit. I was already exhausted from a combo of eff-off AM wake-up and stressing about the Kitty Kondo(tm)... but last night.

Ugh.

I went to bed at like 6:30, sure I was going to sleep the night. Nope. Twenty-minute naps at best, interspersed with waking up to either Beloved's television choices or Chaos on her giggle runs up and down the hall.

Until nearly firkin midnight. Like cheese, peeps. Have some mercy.

The rest of

That was painful...

I recorded my second story this morning. It took longer than it should have. Why?

  • I can NOT read properly, today
  • I learned that the mic works better when the headphones are turned on
  • I learned that my headset automatically turns off after like seven minutes.

Combined with outtakes, stuffups and re-do's, that's... a lot of reading. At least I was able to pick up where it dropped off and just read the end from there.

BUT my throat is shredded and

SIIIIIGGGGHHHH...

Mayhem was sick, yesterday. Pointing finger aimed at a whole load of sugar over the holidays. We both decided that he would be better off going without sugar for a bit and seeing if that improved things for him.

Three guesses what Mayhem decided to do in the middle of the night?

He made the supremely "wise" decision to raid someone else's Erastide gift, and break it in the process. Without even bothering to ask if it was anyones.

WHILE THERE WAS

Finding a new level

I'm getting used to the sleepy/heavy feeling after a weekend of trying to sleep it off and failing.

I've fought through days with this kind of feeling before. Enough coffee, or enough stimulation, will keep me awake enough to function.

What I used to do is gorge myself on sugar. And that's a very bad idea for my diet and my dental health. They may be researching ways for people to regrow their dentin? But it hasn't filtered down to plebe

Ah, weekends...

I have plans to do not a lot of anything very much and I am going to LOVE it.

And since it's a long weekend, that's even better. Nothing much to do for three days. My only responsibility will be my writing. A nice, relaxing slob-around.

You watch. Something's going to happen to muck that nonse up.

The best-laid plans of me in particular always go agley. It's a sad truth. Good thing for me that I'm pretty flexible.

For the terminally
