Hi there! My name's Mary Margaret. I just joined this network, but I've lived here in Orange County for a few years now. I graduated from The University of California in Fullerton and moved.

So, um, does anyone know if there's a vet in Huntington Beach? I adopted two birds and I would like them to have a full check up to make sure everything is okay.

Thank you so much :) Everyone have a wonderful day~

Hello, dear listeners.

I think it's time for a somewhat serious public service announcement, due to a conversation I've had recently.

I really shouldn't have to remind anyone of this, it's 2013 after all. But still, some people seem to be of the mindset that a woman's body is there to be appreciated by all.

Which, in case we all forgot, it isn't.

Yes, some women -- and statistically, some men! -- will chose to wear something revealing for their Halloween costume. But this is not, I repeat not an excuse to harass anyone for what they are wearing! Cat calls and inappropriate comments are never called for, and especially on a night when everyone is looking to have a good, safe time.

So please, gentle listeners. Refrain from making lewd comments about anyone's appearance at any time, but especially as Halloween approaches and we see more people in costumes.

I really shouldn't be laughing, but my housemate seems to be plagued with those speech bubbles other people around this place.

It's not funny. In fact I'm certain it's very frustrating for him!

... but all right, let's admit it, it's a little funny.

Why must little girls grow up?

Of course, I didn't have her in my life when she was a little girl, she came to me only a few years ago, but in a way that makes me all the more nostalgic for the years I haven't had with her.

It isn't as though I'm losing her completely, of course. But my Abigail is practically a grown woman now, eighteen years old and off at college.

Do other parents feel this way, I wonder?

I thought I felt a breeze today, which means I've dug out the warm sweaters and knit scarves.

I'm so very, very ready for it to be fall.

To the person who asked for the very special commission, this isn't that sort of gallery! I'm sure you can find your pervy little desire with the Google.

Can someone bring me some lemonade? Or just lemon juice. I just want lemons. "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Only, when you're me, and 37 weeks pregnant, the saying should be "When life gives you lemons, eat."

The Old Man My boss asked me to get on the "Social Media Website" and advertise. So I thought I'd start here.

Oil Changes are 40% off if you bring a non perishable food item for our Shop's Canned Food Drive. Come on down and get your oil changed. It's practically free!

(So, apparently all the Auto Shops are doing a contest to see who can collect the most canned food for the County-Wide drive. I figure I'll just raid my cupboard.)

So...my friend seems to have gotten into a bit of a pickle. They were hit with a curse or something to turn them into a cat. And they've been stuck like that for a while now (at least I think they're still stuck like that I see your attempt to post Obi-Wan since I haven't heard contrary). So, that leads me to this post in an attempt to help.

Who here can turn a cat back into its human form? I think there should be a few other magical people on this network. Please let me know ASAP and I'll try to set something up because I'm sure my friend wants to be human again as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Okay. So what does one wear to their first boss-run Halloween party? I keep coming up with things I think are funny but then I realize maybe they're actually not.

Also if anyone wants to be my date, that'd be great.

I spent part of my day off taking a much-needed nap, though I now regret it. I had a terrible dream about my mother, followed by news that England was entering the War. World War I, I mean.

I'm so glad Edith isn't here.

Hey, I made Baxter's Halloween costume. I think he likes it, actually.

I find it somewhat intolerable to know that it's not considered socially acceptable to be straightforward about a lot of things. If we were, life would be infinitely better. Sure, it might cause hurt at the start, but then we'd know exactly how things were. We could move on quicker, heal quicker, be a bit more certain that we'd made the right choice.

I'm no one's knight in shining armor, but a lot of times I'd like to fix people and things solely to stop them from being a massive inconvenience to other people. Or me. I just know that this will end bad, and I just know there's nothing I can do about it except be Cassandra, telling it to myself over and over again as I stare at the ceiling, whispering it into the night.

I don't know what I expect to gain from this, really. Just ... letting it out, I suppose. If it stays in, it'll poison me.

Am I the only one buying Taco Bell five buck boxes every day in the hopes of winning a PS4 early? I'm glad my ADD meds keep me skinny.

I take it back. The tattoo I got from the dreams sucked. And the dreams sucked.

But these pants that just showed up are fuckin' awesome. Almost as awesome as the arc welder.

Sometimes ah just love life. Even this strange life that the OC gives us. Even if things get a bit wonky sometimes, ah don't think ah really belong anywhere else (except for back home, but that's debatable .)

I didn't mean I wanted to fly to Beijing, work, and then back again 26 hours later. At least I got to enjoy some Jiaozi and a Mongolian hot pot before my services were no longer needed. All on Uncle Sam's dime, I guess I can't argue too much. Sometimes my job is so ridiculously easy it's hilarious. When running from the MPs don't go visit your favorite noodle stand, seriously? How dumb are you?

It's not the middle east but I did take a quick jaunt to Beijing. stupid people are so easy to catch I brought back some tea, and ate a scorpion on a stick. I swear, sometimes, it's fun to travel.

One of the best things about my career choice is that after a fight I get a few months off. Which means... I have a lot of down time between training (which is more laid back at the moment) and homework (which isn't much thank god). It's giving me time to make friends (My father called and said he was worried I was going to be a hermit...) and I've strapped my pointe shoes back on and hit the floor again.

I forgot how much my toes aren't used to my pointe shoes anymore. I think I've gotten more bruises and cracked toe nails from my pointe shoes than my fights. Not that I'd trade it for anything. But, that being said, I really, really need a spa day.

Anyone know a really good place to get pampered around here?
