Initially I had not thought there was anything odd happening when my charity was getting more people coming to us for assistance. However, after talking with a few women that have come to us, I find out a few shelters have closed recently because of buildings being bought. I don't like the sound of shelters closing down, but I will not turn anyone away that comes to us. It just means more work for us.

Which brings up a topic we should discuss.

Some time ago, I was gifted by my dreams a beautiful porcelain vase which I had purchased in China for my father, who collected such things. As he has the same inclinations here, I thought that I would send it to him as a surprise gift. It's not every day when one receives such an exquisitely made piece of Chinese porcelain.

Today I received his thank you note in the mail. I suppose a phone call, or even a proper letter, was too much to hope for. It seems as though he was rather pleased with it, which I am glad for. My mother let me know that he has it displayed among the rest of his collection; I hope that I will be able to see for myself sometime soon.

No sooner am I made Lord of the Sith, than Darth Thanaton of the Dark Council wants me dead because he sees my views as a threat. He very nearly succeeds by having a lacky lay a trap, except my people manage to get me out. In need of more power if I've a chance to survive, let alone make change in the Empire, I learn of a ritual that would make me strong enough to take this man on and defeat him. It's called "Force Walking" and involves communing with the ghosts of long dead Sith Lords, and in fact binding their restless ghosts to the living in order to harness their power.

This will surely go well.

In other news, I have my first apprentice! A Togruta padawan named Ashara Zavros. A former Jedi! How marvelous.

Does anyone else just ever want to take their dream counterpart and shake some sense into them? I'm watching myself about to repeat the single greatest regret of my life, and it's so frustrating that there's nothing I can do to stop her. And what does that say about me that no matter what reality I'm living in, I'm still willing to sleep with my sister's boyfriend?

Did anyone else not into football watch the Kitten and Cat bowls today? I look forward to those every year, although now I've got my own tiny fluff to watch and play with. I think he was a little jealous we were watching other cats, though.

I'm so glad the kitten with only one eye got pulled out of the game because he got adopted. Seeing him just tugged at my heartstrings. Laurel and Madison kept wanting every cat they saw, which. Trust me, girls, I understand that. But we've got two dogs, four horses, and a kitten. I don't think we need any more animals right now, and Am does not need me to give him the Look with the two of you.

Well at least the Dreams, or whatever is behind the gifts we all wake up too from time to time, decided to wait until after my parents went home to drop seven years worth of Hogwarts texts onto my and Regulus’ bed. I should probably just be glad they landed in between the two of us and not on the foot where Aslan was sprawled. That is one conversation with his veterinarian I will happily avoid forever if I can.

I’m hoping to bring them to the Guild to add to the library so that anyone can look through them. I just don’t have space here for them and I would rather not worry about the girls picking one of them for their bedtime story. Is that alright with everyone?

Today was a good day for the most part. That is until I had to drive by an accident. It looked pretty bad. I hate having to see that stuff since it reminds me of what happened to my mom. Now my mood is shot and I need a distraction. But I don't know what to distract myself with. Any suggestions out there?

Finished my second book, and so now it's off to the editor. Which means soon it will be time for everyone's favorite thing again: revisions. Because there's nothing in the world better than rewriting what you already wrote. And yes, I know they're important. Everyone needs to edit their work, and people who think they don't need to anymore... well. That's why I refuse to believe that there are any books in The Vampire Chronicles past The Queen of the Damned. Editors and editing is absolutely a requirement.

It doesn't stop it from being boring as hell, though.

In my dreams last night, a cataclysm hit Azeroth. A gigantic dragon, the former Aspect of Earth, broke free from his prison, causing earthquakes, tsunamis, Elemental powered volcanoes and numerous other disasters. Even him just flying overhead destroyed whole swaths of land.

The upheaval was terrible. According to my research and sources, if Deathwing is not stopped the entire planet is toast.

Dear British Parliament, stop wasting time with no confidence votes. You have seventy-two days before the EU exit with no deal that would devastate everything. Those of us living and working abroad need to figure out our visas and crap.

It is disconcerting to discover that a belief you've held close to your heart is entirely wrong, even if it was my dreamself who was forced to learn the lesson. There was the belief that, in all the world, there could scarcely be a country that treated dragons any better than Britain herself. They weren't well integrated with society, but it could hardly be Britain's fault that humans held an innate and natural fear of dragons, and we could hardly expect the common person to rise above their base fear without any reasonable cause to do so. Our treatment of dragons is, perhaps, the gentlest in Europe. Certainly no worse, if not better, than that in France, and, from what I've heard, heads above that of Russia or Prussia.

But walking the streets of China, he's discovered that that is not true at all. The streets are build widely, for no other reason than to allow the dragons sufficient berth to traverse the streets. Dragons and humans, even those that are not forced into their presence by circumstance, live harmoniously, and certain breeds of dragons are even revered by the people. Dragons in China can chose their own profession, and can earn coin just as any human might so that they might purchase any goods and services that they need themselves. In Britain, no dragon would ever go hungry as the Crown provides their food and their lodges, but they do not have the same freedom as those in China do.

It is hard to reconcile the fact. Temeraire has assured me that he would never chose China over myself, but I am not sure if, in good conscience, I can ask him to return to Britain when he would be clearly be given more respect and freedom in China.

I don't know what I expected when I took a nap, but I didn't expect to wake up with wings. Or tattoos that I only had in the dreams.

I don't seem to have my magic abilities yet, so, anyone with magical abilities, would you be willing to, uh, help conceal my wings so I can maybe leave my home at some point?

So I had a thought with the snowmen piling up outside my building. What if we could amplify the thoughts of the city into melting them faster? If we amplify the natural vibration of human thought from a really small singular thing into a really big thing we might be able to minimize them at least to keep people from getting too hurt. We can relay that vibration from the satellites down at the snowmen and boom, should have an instant slushie. It may not stop them all, but a high enough vibration and maybe melt a few of these suckers before anyone gets seriously injured.

I do love my parents. The girls were upset over not getting to go see them for their normal holiday this year because I’m not going to allow them to skip six weeks of school, so mum decided that she and dad could miss their traditional Christmas plans and events to come spend the holidays with us. And even better - they’re going to be staying at a hotel so I don’t have to worry about six people and four large dogs in my house since mum has papers allowing both Baby and Precious to travel with her. Which reminds me before I forget - anyone know where they could find a traditional Catholic mass while here? I’m rather lapsed from actively practicing the faith.

[Regulus]
So love...considering our girls are probably going to want to spend at least one night with their grandparents, any idea what you’d like to do with our free night?

And there’s something I want to discuss with you after the girls are in bed. Nothing bad before you start worrying. Just a bit of planning that I should have done before now.

I just received via mail an invitation to my ex-fiance, Edith's, wedding to Mr. Bertram Woolvey, to be held early next year. I admit that it came as something of an unpleasant surprise, but it has been over a year since we ended our engagement, and I am pleased that she will finally be able to continue on with her life without constantly being held by my duty. Mr. Woolvey has always been a bit of a prat somewhat arrogant an idiot an upstanding gentleman from a good family, and I've always suspected that he has held Edith in some regard, so I hope that their union will be a blessed and happy one.

Thankfully Unfortunately, I must remain in America, so I had to send my regrets. I'm sure it will be a beautiful wedding, however.

Normally this would be a rant about how much I hate Thanksgiving, but after last night's dream I'm a little focused on the fact that my dreamself is obviously depressed and the people who profess to love me aren't noticing that I'm dying on the inside.

Just when I think my Dream world decisions can’t get any more questionable they make my Dreamself a teacher at Hogwarts. Teaching Defense Against the Dark Arts, which makes sense because that was one of the subjects I excelled at before I started making all of the wrong decisions with my life there. Of course I can’t just teach that class - I have to change it and teach the kids the Dark Arts. I hate my Dreamself more and more with every Dream I have and just want them over and done with.

I don’t think any of my texts went to the wrong people during our grand annual Halloween tradition of the OC going nuts this year. I sure did get a lot of them, but I don’t think any reached anyone they weren’t supposed to. I’m just glad I didn’t get stuck as my Halloween costume again this year.

One of the texts that got to me was from my mother. I maintain low contact mainly because I’d rather know where she is than be surprised by running into her somewhere I don’t expect her to be. Otherwise I probably would have blocked the number a long time ago. Wasn’t really in the mood to see her political garbage.

So… I’ve just been funneling a lot of emotion into rage cleaning. It’s weirdly productive. Mad about something, just… find an area that needs to be tidied up or scrubbed. Or just resort books or dvds or something. I’ve completely re-alphabetized the girls’ bookshelves, deep cleaned the fridge and freezer, and now that appliances are working again I might clean the oven without fear of it trying to turn itself on during the process. At work, I’ve completely re-organized the library’s back room where the school keeps the copier and die cut machine and all the materials that they both use. To be fair, that last part needed to happen years before I got to it. The library assistant before me must have been one of those “I’m ____ years away from retirement, so I don’t care” kinds.

Also, why is it that I can't cook, but I can make these potions? It's basically cooking.

When the American Bar Association warns against putting someone on the bench and you do it anyway because of politics, you are a very special sort of stupid. Whether or not he did what he was alleged to have done (and I personally believe Ford), you can’t tell me that he has the demeanor you want someone on the supreme court to have. Judges are meant to be unbiased and level headed. That’s why we have judges. The Supreme Court is meant to decide if laws go against the spirit and letter of the constitution or not without dragging their own personal politics or other biases into effect. He was given his seat because of his bias. Everyone that voted yes deserves to be voted out of office.

Which is some weird mutant unicorn/human hybrid baby doll. That you feed. And it poops slime. I understand the unicorn part. Every girls go through that stage, I think? I understand the slime part. We’ve made slime together and I buy them slime from the dollar bins at Target all the time. It’s how you get from point A to point B that I really really don’t get?

I never knew it was possible to be banned from parent teacher conferences, but I have been. Apparently the girls teacher didn’t appreciate being called an idiotic twat for failing Madison on a spelling test just because she had capitalized the first letter of each word. Well, that and telling me she didn’t understand why I was so upset that she’d mixed the girls names up since ‘they’re identical’.

First off - I’m upset because you don’t seem to understand that, while they are identical twins, they are separate individuals with distinct personalities. Which anyone with half a brain would see if they paid attention for five damn minutes while in the room with them. And you, their teacher, are trying to behave and treat them as if they’re interchangeable. Secondly - you made my daughter feel like she was stupid over some arbitrary spelling rule that you yourself admitted not having told the kids beforehand. And the final reason I’m upset with? As an educator the teacher didn’t see any problem with either of those two things. So yes I called her an idiotic twat, and I don’t regret it and absolutely would again.

I guess it’s a good thing my fiance can go to these meetings for them. Although I do hope their teacher isn’t expecting him to go any easier on her than I did if he doesn’t like how she’s treating our girls.

There’s probably no way that we can have them moved to a different class, is there? Or is this where you’re going to tell me it’s early in the year and I should give it some more time to see if it gets any better?
