You know, my mother never liked Fenris. My mother never liked anyone I was with. Half the time I wasn't even sure if she liked me. She wanted me to marry up, you know. I might have been able to. We'll never know now.

I have no idea why I'm telling you this. It seems as if we've moved beyond answering questions and right into things-you-didn't-want-to-know. This would be a great time to ask me disgustingly personal questions. You shouldn't, but you could

» How, my love, have you managed to not go utterly insane here.
» At first I was not so concerned about this place. But now
» Now I think it may be the actual worst. Bloody Mary? la Virgen Puta?
» It is a stupid story used to scare school girls and now she is here? Do you know how many reflective surfaces are in a mess kitchen?
» Do things like this happen all the time?
» I miss our home and Dani and my own kitc Ignore me, I am being ridiculous.

You guys! My best friend Leslie Knope is here! The Pod God really does answer prayers. Some of them, anyway. And only once you've been saying them for nearly half a year. But I'll take it!

Anyway, you should all go say hello to her! She's the most amazing person -- truly, you'll never make a more loyal friend or a more fierce advocate than Leslie Knope. We're so lucky to have her. Now to work on my other best friend (and Leslie's fiance), Ben Wyatt! I've made some real progress on my jobi nut flour-based calzone recipe in his honor.

Oh, but don't worry, new best friends I've made here. There's enough room in my heart for each and every one of you. How are you all doing this weekend? Who's going to try speed dating tonight? I hope I'll see some of you there!

Hello everyone! My name is
myname is

my name's



Okay, you can do this, Leslie.

Greetings! Seasonally! Salutations festively! No, no. That's ridiculous. I can't seem to get this introduction right. Hi everybody! I'm Pawnee City Councilwoman Leslie Knope and I'm completely not okay with any of this at all because this is actually forty-eight miles from my dream second home away from the best city in the world which is also called Pawnee, Indiana and holy crap this sentence has gotten away with me. SO. I should have deleted all that, but I'm too some word I don't even know right now to keep backspacing and deleting and all that.

Emotional? Sure, that's an easy one. I'm emotional! I'm emoting!

there are no waffles in the future are there

As advised I am using this to introduce myself. My name is Kara Palamas. For those of you who are from the same world as me I just ask that you leave me be, I don't want any trouble and I'm sure you don't either.

They can't claim I'm not trying to be social or anything. I really didn't want to do this though. I don't like doing things I don't want to.

-- I should tell Hernando about me, shouldn't I?


Tonight, a treat. I'm making my abuela's Mexican chocolate cake, for dessert in the mess. Adjusted, ever so slightly, to accommodate the supplies here, naturally. But I have been impressed this far by how stocked the kitchens are, given the circumstances outside. I am sure that credit goes to the growers, gatherers, and hunters. May your journeys be fruitful.

I promise it will not stretch supplies, before anyone protests. Just enjoy.

It is a good thing there are no vehicles here for Lito to drive, he does not handle stress well behind the wheel and I think he is at his limit as is.

I hope it is a good omen that I was brought here during Día de los Muertos, but I cannot say, yet. It is not what I expected for myself, but I would always be where Li I will strive to make the best of it. You have all made much of this world, despite circumstances.

Forgive me, I am Hernando, Lito's b a friend of Lito's.

Congratulations to the firearms class. Most of you weren't horrible, and nobody shot any of their classmates. You can all thank Betsy for giving you something to shoot at, and be grateful she didn't give you anything terrifying. I was tempted to let her, but some of you aren't actually combatants, and it's not Halloween yet.

Here are the rankings, for everyone who wants a sense of satisfaction:
1st - Alison Hendrix
2nd - Katniss Everdeen
3rd - Flash Thompson
4th - Will Scarlett
5th - James Potter
6th - Chris Traeger
7th - Angie Martinelli
8th - Alistair Theirin
9th - Anya Corazon
10th - Foggy Nelson
11th - Asala Adaar
12th - Lito Rodriguez
13th - Simon Tam

No one trust Lito or Simon with a gun in the next emergency. We'll work on it, but for now they might shoot you themselves. Sorry.

You want to talk about how much you feel like murdering someone, or was shooting dummies cathartic enough for today?

Who decided it was a good idea to fill the place with pumpkins? How did we get so many pumpkins?

Everywhere I turn there's a new jack-o-lantern with a sneering face staring me down, like it's disappointed with my life choices.

Not everyone loves Halloween.


Is camping always as stressful as it was last week? I think I have new wrinkles.

Are you feeling better?
I never thanked you for saving my life.

Thank you.

I am just destined for underground bunkers. You've got a nice place here, though. Really well-built, easy to defend, good facilities. I can see why the natives picked it.

I'm Echo.

You're in the other room, right? Is there anything you want me to know? Any rules?

My roommate friend Sun is gone.

Were you serious about doing a dance number for the revue?

Sep. 14th, 2015


I deeply enjoyed the party last night! Especially after someone had the idea to put on dance music. I wish I could thank them for it. (Just kidding, it was me! And I already thanked myself. My old therapist, Dr. Richard Nygard, told me I needed to do that more often. My new therapist, Dr. Charles Xavier, says that if it helps, there's no reason to stop, although I might want to do it in my head instead of out loud when there are other people around.)

I hope you all had as much fun as I did celebrating the anniversary of our benefactors' journey home to this planet! And if anyone's feeling hungover today, I would be more than happy to share my dandelion tea with you. It is amazing for your liver. I also recommend the following: lots of water to keep you hydrated; peppermint or ginger for any nausea; apples or bland starches to restore your blood sugar levels; nuts, beans, and leafy greens for magnesium & potassium; and eggs for cysteine, an amino acid that counters the effects of overindulging. Isn't it amazing what natural foods can do for our bodies? We're so fortunate to live in a world free from the dangers of artificial ingredients! Even if it's the only danger we're free from

Someone kissed me.

Sep. 8th, 2015


I hope everyone enjoyed my news broadcast on Sunday! It was an honor and a privilege to carry on the work of my dearly departed (from this world, that is) best friend, Cecil Palmer, even if just for one day. I think he would've been proud. And it only took me four hours of rehearsal to feel adequately prepared! A year ago I would have needed ten times that amount at least. Therapy!

Last month I celebrated my 46th birthday -- well, actually I ignored it completely, because there were more important things going on, and also because the prospect of aging terrifies me to my core. I much prefer the idea of skipping this one and chalking it up to time travel. But strangely, being here is helping with that fear. Or perhaps it's just replacing it with the much more pertinent fear of dying before I ever get the chance to age any further. Hard to say.

At any rate! All of this has reminded me, more than ever, that our time here together is fleeting. I don't want to die or disappear without having made every one of you a close personal friend. So if we haven't met yet, let's change that! I can't wait to make your acquaintance. And if we have met, let's hang out again! Let me make you a cup of herbal tea, or come join me for a run outside! You're all beautiful people with incredible souls, and I am so fortunate to be here sharing this mountain with you.

Do you ever have one of those dreams where you feel like you're awake, but nothing makes sense, and then later you feel like you're falling and you jerk awake and you're in your bed and everything's fine, and that cupcake wasn't really eating you from the feet up? This is that. This place is that cupcake.

And we're introducing ourselves on the computer, great. I'm Ned. There is nothing interesting about me.

I do not have many skills that are useful in a place such as this. I cannot hunt, I do not know how to build anything, not even a bookshelf. I barely cook, I had no need to mend my own clothing, I have never been able to keep plants alive.

I can act, I can dance, and I speak Spanish. I thought if someone would like to learn, I could teach them. Many people here speak English, so Spanish is not as useful as it was in my time, but I would hate for such a beautiful language to die and never be heard again. I am far from a professional dancer, but my father taught flamenco, so I could teach what I know. It may not be useful, but it will be fun.
