Derailments: /sleeptown, again, because my wife didn’t want to go to bed when I first asked, and then I started reading and lost track of everything… Also /nanowrimo2019, twice, because I just didn’t wanna.
New goals: /dishwasher. My wife has to fill it with dirty plates: I have to empty it when they’re clean. Also /malariax, because I’m doing an EdX course and it claims I need to put in a minimum of 3 hours a week for eight weeks to finish. I’m doubtful, both because of prior knowledge and because of my reading speed, but whatever, consistent work at that rate will either get me finished on time, or let me finish early. And I get to infodump excitedly at my wife about malaria
Changes to existing goals: Someone had to wiggle my road for /nanowrimo2019 around because it has no-mercy rerails, but this led to it wanting three days of progress in a single day. Also, somehow the final deadline was set to 29th November, not 30th.
I also need some breaks because I’m away next weekend, so I’ll go put 2-3 days break in on the following goals (too late to work for the weekend, but good for catching up): housework, tabzeroes, dishwasher, iron, writethosereviews, littertray, inboxzeroes, journal, bookbed, rescuetime, malariax. Hopefully I won’t need to ask Jon to fix any of those if they derail because I was late with my breaks!
TaskRatchet Fails: N/a.
Other comments: I’m running off to answer your support emails and then throw myself back into crocheting colourwork for this hat. Need to be wearing a hat with dragons on for the Wales game!
* Consensual infodumping. Apparently I’m cute when I enthusiastically explain what I’m learning. This has been so since I explained dróttkvætt to her like it was essential knowledge, during my first second year of university
**, or possibly sooner.
** I have had three first years of university, two second years, and two third years. My first MA was completed in a single year. So if you’re thinking, “wait, wasn’t shanaqui a biologist, why did they specialise in Old Norse poetry?”
*** – well, fear not, you are correct! I am however also a medievalist.
*** Please do not try sending support requests in Old Norse, I’ve forgotten most of what I knew
**** – it’s been most of a decade, have mercy!
**** I’m just embracing the footnotes at this point.
