Don't worry, this was taken at a redlight. I'm not about to use my phone in a moving car, especially not with the twins with me. It's just. There are so many things wrong with this that I don't know where to begin.

I'm off tonight, I want to go out!

I want to go dancing, drinking, just blow off some steam.


Who's going with me?

Ya think anyone would notice if a certain 'journalist' suddenly turned up dead in an alleyway someplace? I ain't felt this homicidal in a long, long time.

Glad as I am to have my strength back - I really could have lived without the heightened sense of smell coming back. How in a week did I forget how disgusting that tea blend my neighbor makes every damn day smells?

[Katherine]
Gonna need you to help me stay on top of things tonight - I'm still adjusting to having everything back. Distractions are definitely a problem for me.

[Stiles]
If your boyfriend comes in tonight I'm putting him on phone babysitting. I'm delegating every distraction I can until I get used to my senses again.

Wow, so I got a recommendation to check this place out for meeting people and connecting to folks around Orange County, but I'm starting to wonder if this is just a little bit too strange, even for me!

Is everyone okay?? It really seems like you're having a bad week.

I think I’m starting to pick up on a trend in my Dreams - they’re always picking up right where the previous one left off so I need to stop driving myself nuts wondering what is going to happen next. Because it’ll come when it comes. And I think I’m just going to have to accept that dreamAlice makes horrible decisions when it comes to food and drink in that weird hallway. Even after that drink that shrunk her down to ten inches she still picked up the cake from the glass box that just magically appeared under the glass table with currants on top to spell out ‘Eat me’ rationalizing that if it makes her taller she can grab the key and if it makes her even smaller than she can crawl under the door. One way or another she’ll get into that garden. Sound enough logic there I guess. Except that the cake doesn’t do anything. Or at least it hadn’t before my alarm went off and I woke up. To find a glass box on the nightstand with a cake inside it with those words on it.

I guess I’ll find out the next dream what it’ll do and if it makes me grow...then I could try the drink that showed up and see if it works and I’ll have something to reverse it so no harm right?

Ya know, my dreams have been done for like, over three years now so I didn't think this was ever gonna be a problem that I'd ever face, but what the hell are you supposed to do when one of your best friends from your dreams shows up and they really fucking hate you here?

Follow up, anyone figure out how to stop 'em from starting the dreams? Because our dreams are fucked.

So I just had the weirdest dream. And in that dream everyone was calling me Jughead. What the hell kind of name is Jughead? But I mean, it was definitely me. I was writing a book, a novel actually, about a kid who got murdered in a small town, and there's a lot of mystery around it. I don't know. Maybe Jughead was my pseudonym? It felt right, though. When people called me that. It felt like my actual name.

I have a special treat for you this Saturday. You will not want to miss it. An auction will be held at Lux at midnight to win a date with yours truly. One night only. Dinner and a show…the definition of a show could be I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. So save your pennies, darlings. Bidding begins at midnight and ends when the gavel falls. And oh yes, the proceeds will go to a charity of your choice.

Finally did the Disneyland thing on the long weekend. Had to see what all the fuss was about, you know? Anyway, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The fireworks were spectacular, I think, and my husband predictably adored the teacups.

Also, the demon inside me really enjoyed how long everyone had to wait in line for thirty seconds of entertainment. It was a win-win situation for all involved.

Attention sexually active members of the Valarnet:

Rugburn is nobody's friend. It is only sexy for the first little while, and the injuries that result can stick around for some time. If you must have sex on the floor, put down a blanket or a sheet first. This will prevent most friction burns.

Filming for Red Widow is going to start up again soon. I'm really excited about it, but I'm also kind of sad I'll be leaving the family house again. It was nice spending so much time with everyone. I should just be glad they decided to pick up the show for a second season even after Black Widow got taken off the air. Hopefully we'll have a couple more season left.

I thought maybe I should put together a trip to Disneyland before I have to leave. Who would be interested in something like that again?

I hate dogs.

It seems my family is blossoming more rapidly than I'd expected upon moving out here. Taking in a teenager goes through phases of being a wise and a poor choice (Adam, I know you make it difficult on purpose, so don't even pretend to be offended). And we've got a dog.

A dog that seemingly has come out of nowhere.

Fortunately, he dwells downstairs. Extra fortunately, as I'm fairly certain when he looks at me, he knows how this dreaming business is seeping into every day life.

So. I woke up with a dog in my room. Same as the one from my dream last night. Really weird dream. It was my eleventh birthday, but it wasn't. 'Cause I never got a dog. We just moved away. But everything else was kinda normal. BetterMore than normal.

Anyway. Guess I've got a dog now?

Oh goodness, I think I need some um.. help? Or earmuffs.

They won't stop talking. And I've got quite a number of them. But they're hurting my ears. I've asked them to be quiet, but they won't. I guess this is what I get for having too many cats. I don't think I'll get any sleep tonight.

Any way to make them be quiet?

It's very difficult being a stubborn person and knowing that you're the one in the relationship who caves at practically everything.

Honestly. All Arthur has to do is turn down his lips into even a hint of a frown and I'm agreeing to things that go against everything I morally believe in. Such as adopting ungrateful teenagers with smart mouths.

I don't remember this being in my vows.

I know that I should probably be rooting for Blackhawks, since I'm from Chicago and all, but I just like the Bruins more. I don't know why. I just want them to win. Alyssa thinks the whole thing is rubbish and that it takes too long, but she's watching the game with me anyway. She's kind of awesome considering she could go watch something else in her room, but she's putting up with me watching the game. I think I'll keep her.

Oh the sun.

Is it common to find things from your dreams? I only ask because I've just had another round of strange and odd dreams, and in these dreams, I had rather a nice watch (you know the expensive, unnecessary sort), and as I was putting away my real watch tonight I found my dream watch.

It's quite cool. It tells the time in twenty-one different world capitals. But, uh, just wondering is this is sort of normal or not.

It's raining! Absolutely love a good rain, it tastes a bit weird though; then again, just brushed my teeth. Never drink rain after brushing your teeth--though I suppose I'm not drinking the rain necessarily.

Anyway, absolutely brilliant to see those of you at the gala who went; those who didn't, absolutely brilliant to see you in the future when I do!

I just got done reading a couple of books by Neil DeGrasse Tyson; absolutely brilliant man, almost as brilliant as me even. Almost. Still, smart, and love the man incredibly.

I recommend reading them all.

Now I just need another good book, anyone have any sort of suggestions?

Well! According to my dear husband, I am not being nearly as social as I ought to be.

So this is me, attempting to be social. Hello everyone! The weather's been nice, hasn't it? I'm quite thrilled that spring is here, really.

In fact, I've been meaning to find a good park where I can go and feed the ducks. Does anyone know of any particularly duck-filled parks?

My name is Silas Benjamin. Soon you'll be able to see my show on the United Christian Channel, which I'd like you to watch as a personal favour to me. I'll also be making posts on this network from week-to-week about the place that God has in our lives, and how to listen to him.

Well, I think we're already off to a good start.

So, from what I've gathered in my short time here, odd dreams are the norm, yes? Because I am fairly certain that I've had one, in which I dreamt I was a snake? And by "I dreamt I was a snake," I mean, of course, "I dreamt I was the snake that tempted Even in the Garden of Eden."

I haven't told Arthur yet. Likely he'll say something about it being blasphemous but I won't tell him he was there, either.

I mean. I dreamt some other things, too, but the important bit is I was most certainly a Former Angel Turned Demon/Talking Serpent. Which for all accounts and purposes is pretty bloody cool.

Got a letter from Mother, including a clipping about a study which shows how destructive same-sex marriage would be to British society. I'm fairly sure it's because Parliament approved a second reading of a bill which would allow it, at least in England.

ETA: I've calmed down some. Arthur says I ought to explain myself when I use profanities.

I left for work this morning, got into the car, and noticed my trousers were missing. How embarrassing. Went inside, put them on, process repeated. By about the forth time I was somehow only in my shirt and shorts. I've taken a sick day and am working from home this week. It's better for my blood pressure this way.

Can I just say I love America? And I love Palm Springs. When I retire, I am retiring here. While I feel awful for leaving Arthur during Easter (ps Angel, I have internet in Palm Springs, enjoy your burgers), everything makes up for it. Everyone here has a Bentley and I'm jealous, and I played my first round of golf today ever, and I was awful, but it was bloody great fun. I've eaten a lot of food -- good food, tonight's dinner for ten cost a very pretty penny -- and had an awful lot to drink.

Oh. And in my down time? I relax by the pool.

Because I seem to be a collector of stuff, I've found a little keychain pendant that has the scrabble tile Q on one side, and 'Keep Calm and Carry On' on the other. It was really too perfect to resist, and now resides on my far too large for its own good key chain.

I'm not even certain what half these keys are for, anyway.

What's this? A social network that's previously gone unheard of by me? Can't have that, can we.

I won't lie. I've flicked through and read some of the open posts lurking on here. It's not that I'm sneaky or anything, I just like to know what I'm getting into, right? And you all seem like bang-up people. Also, a guy can never have too many friends/acquaintances/etc. On that note, I'm Anthony, and I work at [firm], and I highly suggest you bring all of your investment needs my way. Seriously. I'm really good at that stuff.

Also - I have to ask. Is there a good place to feed the ducks? My husband is really, really concerned about this and it might ease his culture shock a little.

PS. I'm in need of a good physician, the regular, family practitioner sort that offers routine check-ups. Any recommendations?
