I'm kind of excited. I discovered a new moth last time I was in Venezuela and I get to name it. World, there's a new moth named Acherontia lydia. (Its wings are red.)

It's probably not very romantic to name an insect after your girlfriend, but that's how I am.

If anyone has any tips on how to fall asleep and stay asleep, it would be very much appreciated. I'm growing more and more irritated at the fact that I barely seem to manage a few hours every night, and then I find myself sleeping for long periods of time during the day.

I think I'm going crazy with nothing to do. It might very well be time to start getting back to work soon, hesitant though I am about it.

Completely unsure of how to process last night's dream in which my husband (here, not in the dreams) attempted to purchase me a companion of the sexual persuasion.

She screamed and slapped me when I told her it wasn't her fault her father left (he just didn't like his job at the post office). Apparently, being sympathetic isn't something you are meant to do at brothels?

I'm relieved nothing happened, although I'm sure she was a very nice woman.

I feel I should loathe this network, but, in truth, I find it cathartic. The thought that someone might be listening without complaint is alarmingly comforting, in a sense. Who would have thought.

My mood has at least taken a turn from anger to what I've decided is nostalgia. It's funny how these dreams have brought some of the pleasant, real memories I have of my brother and I. I'd forgotten times like that even existed, but there you have it.

I suppose I miss him, fool that he is. But I wouldn't take those words too seriously, most likely their brought on by a lack of sleep and nothing more.

Can't the dreams just take a hiatus while I'm trying to study for midterms and stuff? No? Yeah, thought so.

So, Annabeth, Grover and I started on our quest to Los Angeles and were driven into town by the camp's sentry who was this big guy with tons of eyes covering his body. Then we got on a bus and were attacked by the furies again, one of them being Mrs. Dodds that I killed earlier. Apparently monsters reform after a while. So we escape and wind up at this place called, Aunty Em's Garden Gnome Emporium where we get some food, which was good, but then the not good part happened. Aunty Em was really Medusa and tried to turn us into stone. I ended up cutting off her head; yeah, tell me that wouldn't be traumatic for a twelve year old. We found a lost dog after that and returned it, getting enough money to buy train tickets. We got off in St. Louis at the Arch and I rode to the top where this middle ages woman turns into an Echidna and her yappy dog turns into a Chimera. In order to escape, I jump out of the arch through a hole that blown into it and landed in the Mississippi river, finding out in the dreams that I can breath underwater.

I already found out here that I can breath underwater and it's kind of interesting that I found out here before finding out in the dreams. Isn't it usually the other way around?

So, my dreams ended there and when I woke up, there were a pair of high top chucks at the end of my bed. Now these aren't just ordinary sneakers. Luke gave them to me before we left on the quest and they're flying sneakers. How cool is that? I haven't tried them yet cause I haven't had time, I'm actually gonna be late for class if I don't end this now, but how cool is that?

So, hey, public network. That's kind of neat.

I was wondering if anyone else on here is attending USC? I transferred in a while back, but haven't really managed to meet many people. Figured I'd give this a try. If you're looking for study buddies or just to hang out hit me up.

A part-time job also wouldn't be the worst thing ever so if anyone has tips on somewhere to work that wouldn't be at the mall or slinging burgers around that would be awesome.

Apparently candy just isn't a big thing after crazy volcanoes and all that. Go figure, huh? Because you'd think my chocolate lava cakes would be a big hit right now.

Just Desserts is tumbleweed style quiet today. Someone better show up and give me something to freaking do because otherwise I'm just going to eat the entirety of my stock. And then I'm going to visit each and every one of you while on my sugar high. Yes. That is a threat.

Hate these dreams. Hate them, hate them, hate them. More Troy nonsense. I wasn't even supposed to be fighting, I'm the very definition of a lover, not a fighter. But, you know, Athena wounds Ares and knocks him down and I'm all sentimental so I try to get him away from the fighting. But then Hera sics Athena on me, and she hit me so hard that my heart stopped. And then she hovers over us, him gushing ichor out of his neck wound and me gasping and trying to get my heart started again, and gloats! She gloats!

I wake up to my heart having stopped and a big red mark in the center of my chest. Now I'm all achy and sore and I'm just not in the mood to deal with this shit today.

You shall go west, and face the god who has turned,

You shall find what was stolen, and see it safely returned,

You shall be betrayed by one who calls you a friend,

And you shall fail to save what matters most, in the end.


This is what I just woke up reciting. I think I know what that dream in my dream meant now though. Apparently someone stole Zeus' Master Bolt and since Zeus doesn't like me, apparently, he thinks I stole it or something. So, I was given the quest to find it and the Oracle of Delphi is apparently in the attic of The Big House at camp and she told me the above prophecy.

Now I've gotta try to go back to sleep, wondering exactly what the prophecy means.

I was invoked by a little girl today. She didn't exactly say it all correctly but apparently her mother had the alter to me set up properly so I heard her. She couldn't have been more than five or six but she was earnest and adorable so I popped in to talk to her.

Her name was Lyra, she had the cutest little braided pig-tails and a big vocabulary for her age. She said there was this boy in her class that she liked but wasn't sure if she wanted him to be her boyfriend. I asked her if she thought she was too young for a boyfriend and she gave me this really perfect no nonsense sort of stare and announced that she already had two other boyfriends and needed a third. After that well, I had to help her.

I don't generally go around playing matchmaker for kids but I gave her a pink mini-rose for her hair and told her that it was a magic rose. That it wouldn't make him love her but if she wore it the next time she talked to him it would tell her if he was right for her. I then also had a talk with her mother about leaving her books of invocation lying around.

I do love Valentine's day, even if it's so commercialized and fake. When it goes right it really is the best holiday.

Ahem.

With Valentine's coming up, I feel it's my duty to remind you all that you should probably be treating yourself, or someone you like enough to buy things for (or both).

That said, do yourselves and everyone else a favor and avoid those crappy mystery boxes of chocolate with the weird coconut syrup and poison in them, and instead take yourselves to Just Desserts where everything is good and nothing hurts.

If you tell me a good joke, I'll give you a discount.

So, I heard this on the radio the other day and it was one of the most fun segments I've heard in a while. And since this is a very diverse group of people I want everyone's opinions.

If you had to pick one song to listen to for the rest of your life, what would it be?

And what song is your favorite song to scream sing?

I think my answer to both of them is: Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. It is one of my favorite songs. I even have to do all the instrumentals.

Alright, give me yours!

Hello my lovelies! Guess who has just learned to apport! And I can teleport! Oh, and I dreamed of actually doing nice things for people. Still waiting on all the 'love' based stuff, but as I sit here in my pool full of glitter, drinking a bottle of Shipwrecked 1907 Heidseick and polishing off my second box of Pierre Hermé Initiation Chat macarons, I can't help but think that today was a good day anyway.

My head aches haven't slept in days because I am afraid of what

I think the dreams everyone's talking about are nothing more than mass hysteria, and quiet self-aggrandizing, if I'm being totally honest. No, if I'm being totally honest, I say they are a self-serving, cyclical delusion. Pathetic. Superheros? Vampires? Improbably accurate super-sleuths? Rubbish.

Why am I ranting here?
Then again, who else could I...?

I can't believe the first month of this new year is almost over! Why is time just flying by? I wish things would go a little slower and maybe my days would drag on a little longer.

So in preparation for February I decided to look over some of the pet events that are going on around the area that people might want to attend. You can view things: here. These should all be dog friendly, so if you have a dog make sure to see if there's any that strike your fancy. If you don't have a dog, well I have some more pets at my clinic that are up for adoption if you want to stop by and take a peek at them.

There's some really great events. Lots of fundraising and awareness events. I love all these puppy kissing booths for Valentine's Day ideas. Very clever! A run/walk for breast cancer and a kid petting zoo.

So, I haven't had any actual new dreams in awhile, but I've started redreaming the stuff I already dreamt. Is this normal? Last night, I dreamt about a dream that I had in the dreams the night before I got to Camp Half-Blood.

It was storming on the beach, and two beautiful animals, a white horse and a golden eagle, were trying to kill each other at the edge of the surf. The eagle swooped down and slashed the horse's muzzle with its huge talons. The horse reared up and kicked at the eagle's wings. As they fought, the ground rumbled, and a monstrous voice chuckled...goading the animals to fight harder. I ran towards them, knowing I had to stop them...but I was running in slow motion. I knew I would be too late. I saw the eagle dive down, its beak aimed at the horse's wide eyes, and I screamed, No!

I still don't know what it means, either in the dreams or the waking world. What I do know, from the research that Annabeth and I did on Greek Mythology a few months ago, is that Zeus' sacred animal is an eagle and my dad's is a horse. So, I'm betting it has something to do with them, but what, I have no idea.

Kind of wanting some new dreams about now.

In other news, I've been spending the last few Saturdays with Ariel, at the pool, trying to get over my fear of water. It's actually been going pretty well.

So, my mom went home yesterday and I now am the proud owner of a 2005 Honda Civic. I still can't really believe that she got me a car, but it makes sense cause now I have a form of transformation and don't have to rely on Annabeth to drive us around when we go out. I'm glad my mom decided to come out here and see the campus and I'm glad her and Annabeth finally got to meet even if they did have fun teasing me like the entire time.

Tomorrow I'm meeting with Ariel for the first time to start and try to get over my fear of water. It just feels ridiculous to be afraid of water if my father in the dreams is the Sea God. Speaking of my dad, I also asked my mom about him in real life and got some answers for a change. Turns out my real life and dream life might just collide a little bit.

Classes start again Monday, which I'm excited about, because I finally get to start taking classes for my major.

So my dreams have inspired me. I didn't have many, but I did dream about Percy coming to camp and taking care of him. But the most important part of the dream:

CAPTURE THE FLAG - it was the most epic thing I have ever witnessed. Everyone in this camp has a God/Goddess for a parent and we're all trained for combat, so just imagine how great this capture the flag battle is.

I really want to do this here. Would anyone be up for some epic capture the flag? We don't need to have swords or anything. We could do a paintball or laser tag aspect to it.

And I also received a couple presents when I woke up. I also have an orange Camp Half Blood shirt and I got a Yankees cap. The cap doesn't seem that great, but in my dreams it turns me invisible. I put it on after I woke up and it WORKS here too! I am going to rock capture the flag.

So my blood is gold.

No, I'm not kidding. I woke up this afternoon with a massive gash in my arm and blood everywhere, only it's not really blood, it's ichor. Essentially my blood is now gold.

Also I didn't know that injuries could carry over from the dreams. I mean, I've given birth in my dreams a few times but I've had no pain or marks or changes to my body. Maybe it has to do with the type of injury? I mean, I knew I was going to be stabbed, I did my research. But if I had known that it could do that I wouldn't have kept the nice sheets on the bed or at least I would have wrapped it up before hand or something.

I'm trying hard not to think about what the ichor means.

Anchises. He was beautiful even after Zeus crippled him, our boys were beautiful too. Good boys, like their father. I couldn't stay with him and I could not take him with me. As he grew older before my eyes I knew he needed a real wife so I sent him one and I'd like to think he was happy. Aeneas, our oldest, carried him from Troy and he later died in Sicily. I was there when he passed, I don't know why I went because it was so damn hard to keep it together, it was a peaceful passing at least. And now I feel...

But yeah, fuck Zeus. Not Zachary of course, that bastard he dreamed of, that bastard can go and fuck himself. And fuck love too while we're at it, it's a terrible, shitty thing.

Helen. Yeah. Helen and Paris. Helen and Paris and me in the corner saying 'go on, sugar, it'll be totally cool if you run off to Troy with the hot prince. Menelaus will completely forget about you within the week'. Heh, yeah, that went sooooo well.

So yeah, I guess the lesson today kids is: shipping is all well and good but whatever you do don't try to actually push your ships together because you could start a terrible ten year war.

FUN NON-CHRISTMASY BASED DISCUSSION.

As an avid reader of these boards, I can't help but noticing a lot of us are shameful flirts. To this end I ask: does anyone else ship people on this board or am I just crazy? Like, there's some of you who aren't dating but I just want to smush your faces together and be all NOW KISS.

Like that.

I swear to god, you guys are going to make me go all Fiddler on the Roof on your bottoms and start randomly setting you up. Which would turn out badly, since I'm sure some of you are like me and are taken but can't turn off the flirt.

There's nothing like listening to old Christmas songs, drinking enough eggnog to knock out a horse, and trying to get a string of Christmas lights untangled and in working order.

Our efforts were fruitful in the end, and we now have a Christmas tree worthy of the effort we put into it, and the horrible hangovers we'll garner as a result. Not to mention the potential exposure to salmonella.

Ah, the holidays. There's no time of year quite like them. I feel that we'll miss the snow as the month gets older. Not that we'll miss shoveling it, or driving in it, or listening to people complain about it. Those are things whose absence we'll cherish.

Out of all the Greek gods my father just has to be the sea god. So, yeah, apparently Poseidon is my godly parent in the dreams. We were playing a game of capture the flag in the woods, Clarisse and her buddies attacked me, but I defeated them after I touched the creek and my wounds healed. Then I got attacked by a Hellhound and defeated it by touching the creek then after all that a glowing trident appeared over my head, which meant that my father had claimed me.

Yeah, so wanna know the irony of this whole thing? Poseidon is my father and I have a freakin' fear of water! I should have known it'd be something like this.
