[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty Five]

Mascot by Kelly Mahoney at SoSplush

Yeah.

I totally slept in again today.

Will I get back on track tomorrow?

Probably?

Maybe?

I don’t know?

But first the news:

First, I want to introduce you to the perfect hand drawn circle. Drawn by the first genius of the Italian renaissance.

That title is what I wanted to write today, but then First Minion started throwing up around three this morning and, well, it’s another rough night.

But first the news:

I’ve already done yoga, studied languages, meditated, and now I’m writing. If only I could manage the protein smoothie, but that involves the blender and First Minion is currently back asleep on the couch next to me.

You can’t always get what you want.

But back to $TITLE, yeah?

Can’t Sleep The Clowns Will Eat Me

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty Three]

Seriously, though, the sleep thing has been pretty miserable with rather high temperatures, but today the weather sobered up and got a bit more Autumn-like.

Sleep should be good tonight.

And 5am will be a little painful.

But welcome.

But first the news:

And also I’ve got a looming work deadline.

Want to see?

Cause this morning for the hacking stream, I totally just worked on the project.

Live.

But I Just Wrote A Post Nine Hours Ago

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Eighty One]

Writing one article right before bed and then another right before getting out of bed SUCKS.

But first the news:

I’ve got thirty SIX subscribers on YouTube!! !

Only sixty four more to a pretty link!! !

But, more importantly, I read “How to Shoot Video That Doesn’t Suck” – not just that trailer, but the whole book.

Get ready for some hopefully not as suck videos!

Damnit, Back Up Alarm Clock

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Seventy Nine]

I was totally going to go back to sleep this morning.

And then I didn’t.

But first the news:

When I first started getting up at ass o’clock in the morning, I was waking up the cat. She sleeps downstairs in the living room and I’ll admit to a bit of joy as I woke her up instead of the other way around.

See, she knew that our alarm went off at 0645 (back in the day) and that we rolled out of bed around 0700 and she would come upstairs and start howling JUST before the alarm clock around 0630.

Brat.

Thus, it was totally petty of me, but I LOVED waking her up those two precious first days before she figured out it was going to be a thing and started waking up before I got downstairs.

But now.
