I found a doll sitting on my coffee table this morning. A dirty, shabby looking doll with this ratty dress and button eyes. I'm assuming it came from my dreams considering the creep factor. What am I supposed to do with a doll?

Well, I took an MBTI personality test and found out that I am apparently an ENFP. That's supposed to stand for 'extroverted, iNtuitive, feeling, perceiving'. I read some interesting things about that particular personality type. Apparently I am good at most things that interest me. I have great people skills. I'm 'gushy' and I overdo things. Sadly, ENFP's seem to have difficulty in marital relationships. I guess everyone has to have some faults, though.

You can find out what type you are here: http://www.mbtionline.com

Is anyone out there hiring? I kind of woke up with some ... well, wounds that are surely going to scar, which makes burlesque not really as viable as it once was.

I've done almost everything at least once, and I'm sharp.

I don't like to ask favors of people, but I have no choice at the moment.

Last night, there was a small fire at my bookshop.

I say small in the sense that it didn't ruin the structure. Only my back room was destroyed. The place where my experiments were. The fire marshal couldn't tell whether it was a leak, or something more sinister. I also choose not to think about it, because the idea of someone setting fire to my bookshop deliberately - with all that ancient knowledge, and the paper and other flammables present - makes me sick to my stomach.

That said, I did have insurance on the structure, so it should be able to be rebuilt. It's just a question of where I'm going to stay in the meantime. Would it be possible for me to sleep on someone's couch for the next week or so?

All I got for Christmas was books, and I'm thrilled. I'd be more thrilled if I could get my friends to use reusable wrapping methods, but maybe next year. (There's so many cute kinds, "they're ugly" is not an excuse.)

So I'm sorry if you don't see me for a while, I'm reading about Aussie farming history and some of its problems now.

Can you guys all do me a favor? If you see a rope puzzle or a toy carousel missing horses just ... laying around, could you not pick them up and call me instead?

Here's my work cell: [number]. I'm a cop, so don't hesitate, day or night.

Those things are from my dreams, they're dangerous, and god only knows if they'll show up.

It is now December, and it's appropriate to put up holiday decorations. I'm silently judging everyone who did so beforehand.

I've gotten in some brand new magical tomes, as well as more classics - a beautiful set of hardbound British writers. Defoe, Austen, Hardy, and the like. I do have to wonder who continues to drop beautiful books like The Key of Solomon into my drop-off box, though.

Yes, mall, keep playing Christmas carols. I might just happen to summon imps in all of your stores. You know. Accidentally.

I swear, it's like eventually they're going to just try to move the day of the holiday until we have some weird Hallowanksgivemaskuahnzayear.

I had a customer ask me the other day why I didn't serve coffee or tea or pastries, or some such thing. Do many bookshops do that, these days? I would think that there would be a concern about getting some sort of stain on the books. Or crumbs, or goodness knows what else. It seems terribly dangerous to me to have food and beverages around books, especially old ones.

(Never mind that I sometimes have tea at the shop, it always gets put under the counter when a customer comes in. And never near the shelves.)

I was getting dinner tonight, and a young man called me a milf. I've never been called a milf before, it was slightly flattering but mostly creepy.

I keep getting random comments on the street though. It's odd because I've never gotten them before. I wonder what's different.

A word to every man out there: Don't cat call a woman. She doesn't like it.

So, apparently there's supposedly some study that says that guys who have smaller balls are better fathers than guys who have larger ones. Something about testosterone or something. Honestly, who decides that these are things that need to be studied?

Alright, two things:

1. I'd like to talk to whoever the hell is in charge of naming monsters. This crap is getting out of hand. I mean how the hell is anyone supposed to take something called a friggen Rugaru seriously? Sounds straight out of Scooby Doo. Related to that (so thing 1a, I guess?) I feel like I should start taking some kind of tally about the number of times something tries to eat me or Sammy in these dreams.

2. Welcome home, baby.

What marvellous things people come up with nowadays. A couple in Venice Beach wants to open an entirely milk-and-cereal restaurant, with a few extra options. They're running a kickstarter, and I chipped in some money. I think it's inventive.

I predict a flood of stoners there at all hours.

I find myself lacking motivation of late. Either to do the things I love to do, or to seek out new things to try.

I don't suppose anyone has any suggestions for a hobby?

Orange County may be a longer commute downtown to the store, but at least I'll likely no longer be harassed by Jehovah's Witnesses at my door at ungodly hours. I respect one's right to exercise their religion, but I would be very grateful if they would let me exercise my sarcastic atheism in peace.

At any rate. My name is Ariel. I'm the new owner of Nemo's, in Orange, a rare book store. We specialize in old occult books from Europe, but there have been some American gems I've come across, too. I tend to keep myself to myself, but there's always exceptions, I suppose.

I like to read, to sing - I'm trying to find a metal band that needs a singer; I did some shows in New York with a band and I loved the style - and I'm interested in the history of my father's people (he came from Thailand). Hopefully I will see some of you in my store.

I am in serious trouble, you guys. Daddy's not happy. Doesn't seem to care that someone would be dead if I wasn't around. You might not hear from me for a while. Thank goodness he doesn't know about this network.

Summer Plans!

Since School kind of ended up sucking out here, I'm pretty glad it's over soon. I mean next year, maybe I won't be the class loser, you know? I'm pretty sure Spazz Girl can go away between the end of the year and fall. I mean I sort of know what not to do and things now, so that's good.

And I really want to do something awesome this summer while I have the time. I'm not sure what I can do for a job since I don't turn sixteen for a little while still, but volunteering sounds like it might be a good idea. Does anybody need any kind of summer help? I like to bake things, and take care of animals, mostly, and I'm getting good grades in everything but Math!

Anybody have any ideas?

Weird Question Time:


[info]hello_megan
[info]valarnet
I'm one of those people who doesn't have a Mom, but has two dads instead. Should I do something to say I appreciate and love you on Mother's Day anyway? And if I do that, do I do it for both of them or one, or what? I mean I always call them on weekends and things, but should I end up sending them something that'll show up late or like, dropping off an e-card or not? I'm kind of confused...
