Awwwww I missed the East Coast's half-assed Snowmageddon?

Not sorry.

Though it would have been nice to have that one day of work off.

Okay, I officially regret bitching about how being a cop in the O.C. was nothing like being one in NYC and that it was kinda boring.

This crime wave isn't just overwhelming, it's really pissing me off. I hate feeling like all my hard work is useless. It's like trying to swim against a rip tide. No matter how hard you try, things just seem to be getting worse.

I need motivation. Gonna have me some Jack and Coke and watch a shit-ton of Southland. Officer Cooper speeches make everything better.

Watching Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve almost makes me wish I was in the city for New Years. Then I see everyone jam packed liked sardines at Times Square in twenty degree weather and realize, nah, I'm good right here in my warm apartment with a six pack, my dog, and a big screen TV.

Yeah all right but what in the God given bloody bedamned fuck are these dreams I've been having? Insect demons, witches with monkey familiars, full on balls to the wall black magic shit.

God that poor girl, I can't even think about what happened to her.

And that's not even touching on the lung cancer. Which I suppose isn't too far fetched, considering how much I smoke. But I did manage to fool Hell's top three demons into letting me live, cancer free. Points to me, there.

The rest can fuck right off, though.

So I'm headin' back to New York on Tuesday to spend Thanksgiving with the family. Mom's actually excited, which is a surprise. Was sure she'd written me off as a lost cause all the way out here in Cali. I'm sure she'll try to talk me into moving back East and going back to the NYPD. It'll be hella tempting but I gotta say, the OC has grown on me.

I'm gonna see if I can try to check out the Macy's Parade balloons on Wed night as they're blowing 'em up. Always something I wanted to do. I just gotta remember to pack cold weather gear. Because I've seriously forgotten what it's like over there already.

I can't seem to stop eating potato chips today. Maybe it's because they're delicious?

I got into a huge fight with my dream!sister last night. In my dreams. When I woke up this morning I called her, but she was already in school. I hung up the phone after talking with my mother, and realized how silly that phone call was.

Happy Veteran's Day/Armistice Day/Rememberance Day. Thank you to every single person who has worked with the military in any form. I still can't believe it's been 100 years since the start of WWI.

My mum was sweet enough to send me a poppy to wear for the past few days and a sweet letter thanking me for my service. I wish I was home so I could see the beautiful poppy installation at the Tower of London. The pictures are breathtaking.

So, if you see someone out and about in military uniform today, please tell them thank you. I promise it will brighten their entire day.

So yesterday I went in to the Irvine PD station to turn in the last of my paperwork, check in, all that stuff, and some jackass from Vice tells me "Don't forget your box of crayons", like it's my first day as a cop ever.

He's lucky I didn't introduce him to a little New York attitude and knock him flat on his ass.

Other than that my Halloween was pretty interesting. I thought maybe the costume thing last night was just the alcohol talking, but looks like it's a legit OC thing. Actually pretty entertaining stuff. For once I can say, thank you OC.

So the Irvine PD accepted my application and they got all my paperwork from New York. This decision's been a long time in the making, but between the dreams and missing the beat, I can't say I'm surprised I'm getting back into a uniform.

Mom was pissed though I wasn't coming home to be in the NYPD. Surprised she didn't block the paperwork or you know, set it on fire. She'll get over it.

I hope.

Now....to figure out what I'm wearin' for Halloween and where I'm gonna wear it to. Ideas?

Oh my.

I was scrolling through facebook and saw an uberfact that said, "New Yorkers bite 10 times more people than sharks do worldwide."

I feel like I should be thankful that I never got bit by anyone when I lived in New York. Hopefully moving out here is a lot more mellow and I don't get bitten by sharks in the ocean either.

Tonight will be my first night in Orange County and I thought I should introduce myself.

I'm Dr. Juliet Burke and I'll be here for a few months, working with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, as well as the surrounding Police Departments, the County Correctional Department, and I will also have office hours for any interested civilians.

I am a Psychiatrist with a specialization in traumatic events. I know that there have been many of those in this area, and have relocated temporarily to help where ever I'm needed. I also deal in Anger Management, Phobias, Night Terrors (and Dreams), as well as every-day occurrences.

Please don't hesitate to call [number], text, or message me here should you need any sort of assistance. I'm sure that this will be a wonderful experience for me, I hope to do some good during my stay.

Woke up to find a bow and a quiver of arrows in bed with me.

Not sure if this was someone's idea of a joke or a present.

Either way, I guess this is a sign from the universe that I should take some archery lessons.

Inspired by my Pinterest Christmas Board, I'm making Cinnamon-and-Applesauce ornaments. But, Audrey, I know you're thinking, Christmas is like, two months away! And it is. But these ornaments smell like heaven, and can freshen the air of everything from a locker to a car. Or anything else you can think of!

Besides, cinnamon is one of those autumn spices. These little babies will continue releasing the beautiful cinnamon-y scent until New Year's Eve--moneyback guarantee!

Come on by Baxter Bakery, have a Pumpkin Spice Sparkling Latte and pick up an ornament to hang from the rearview mirror in your car. You won't regret it.

Seriously? My dreams are already nightmares. I don't need a whole helping of crazy on top of that.

Woke up screaming and flailing. I hit my dog Sasha in the face in the process. Now she refuses to even come near me and has this look of 'what the heck did I do?'. Pobrecita.

Damn this crazy ass county.

So, talking about your dreams seems to be a thing you do here.

Had the weirdest dream last night. One of those dreams that are so real that you think it might be actually happening. And I swore I woke up with aches and pains in places I don't usually have aches and pains. Must be getting old.

I know they say that when you dream you're a superhero it's supposed to be some kind of wish fulfillment.

I don't know anyone who would want to be this guy.

Also not sure how I feel about the name.

Hawkeye.

I'm not even from Iowa.

If anyone is thinking of investing in a Husky, please remember that they are giant toddlers who will listen to everything you say, and then decide they really don't feel like doing it.

Now that Thor's a year old, he doesn't get the concept that he's too big for my lap. Or that the couch is no and his bed next to the couch is yes.

We're also working on the whole here and stay thing. And not licking new friends to death.

And by new friends I mean literally anyone who gets close to him.

That being said, thanks for keeping me in the loop in this world. Anything I can do to help? Suit's had a tune-up and I'm itching for a test run.

What. Is. Up, Orange County? Frequent visitor, first time resident. The name's Peter (not Petey, not Pete, not P-dizzle, it's Peter), I'm from a little town down south y'all probably have never even heard of. So I'll spare you all the Googling.

PS. I own this place called Star-Lord Collectibles, a place where you can get all your hard-to-find collectible needs. Or where you can sell them. And if we don't have what you're looking for, chances are I know how to get it for you. Grand opening is this Saturday, so until then I'll be enjoying the beaches and the babes.

Peter, out.

So who's gonna tell me where a man can get a drink around here? And I ain't talking about some fancy place with nice seats and top shelf liquor I can't even afford or pronounce. I'm talkin' about a place to drink that's crawling along the seedy underbelly of whatever bad side of town this City claims to have.

You know what I'm talking about? The kinda place where the ladies are just as likely to fuck you up as the guys are and if you spill your pisswater on someone's shoes you're gonna be in trouble. That's the kinda place I want to be in. I find that kind of environment relaxing, and after a long road trip I could use a little letting off of the steam.

Help a guy out?

So these past few days have been interesting and busy. Adopted a dog and it's been love at first sight.

Except for the couch. Guess there was bound to be a causality at some point. She only chewed on a little bit of the arm though.

Need a name for this little cutie. Any suggestions? I'm kinda bad at names.

Hokay, so someone gave me the word that this was better than craigslist although not by much. Hi. I'm Astrid. I work at a vet, where we're trying to find the owners of this lost little beauty.



We've had her for a couple of weeks and no one's claimed her, except for a few bullshit animal hoarders. If no one does by today, we'll have to put her up in a shelter. I'd rather not have that happen.

I'd take her, but the apartment has a pretty lame no-pet policy.

So. I rolled over this morning and found a walking stick from my dreams. Well I'm guessing it's from my dreams. I haven't dreamed of this one yet. But. Where else would it come from around here? unless there are magical looking walking stick gnomes running around with the laundry ones.

Let me tell you rolling onto a walking stick is not a fun way to wake up. They're not comfortable.

So I'm here back in the city (from those not from the Tri-State area that would be the one and only New York City) and it feels good. Even the weather is nice. Mom and I have since made up so it's all good. She still wants me back on the force here, and I'm tempted. But weird enough I think the OC is growing on me.

Came back in time for Fleet Week too which is cool and amusing. Nothing like watching a bunch of squids hit the town.

Cut for touristy image )

I wanted to warn them not to pose with the fake Mickeys but it was more fun to watch them get suckered. I swear Times Square looks like a bootlegged version of Disneyland that threw up all over a Marvel movie. So many costumed panhandler's it's ridiculous.

I'm new here, just moved up from Arizona. I'm a PI, or I will be when I get licensed here. I don't do divorce, but if you need a good PI for anything else, I should in theory be your guy. It's just me and my dog Oscar, so my time is my own.
