I still can't believe I'm gonna be a dad soon. Isabela's about twenty-eight weeks along, and it's lots of fun cooking things for her (I read that she needs more protein and vitamin C, so why not help?). I've also been trying to give the pets extra attention now, so they won't freak out that first few months when they get less. I feel guilty already.

Starting to think about names. I don't really have any close male relatives I'd name a boy after, so I've been thinking about my mates. I'd like to have at least one of the baby's names be for someone in my life. Though I think my son would get mocked endlessly at school if I agreed to name him Obi-wan or Zevran.

First a day of fighting darkspawn, then a dream of fighting droids. At least the darkspawn were a very straightforward sort of threat. Killing them didn't feel like murder. If the Jedi are are like family then what's it called when you behead your master's master's master? Great grand patricide? I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm being too flippant about it it's the only way I can think to deal with the fact that I was incited to essentially murder a former Jedi Master by someone I look up to as a father even though I knew before and after that it was wrong. There is a reason why Jedi don't kill their prisoners after all, mostly to keep us sane.

Oh, and if anyone is considering throwing Obi-wan over their shoulder and running an obstacle course, you'll find he's surprisingly light. You'd really be surprised how often I have had to carry him.

But anyway it ended as most of my missions seem to. I save the day, Obi-wan verbally abuses my droid and takes every opportunity to say something sarcastic or witty, and together we create billions of credits worth of property damage. And of course he makes me deal with the politicians but as much as I complain about it to him I'm secretly delighted as it's the first time I get to see my wife in about six or seven months. That's when the dream started to echo my real life, but that was the end of it for now. I can't hope but help it stays that happy for a little while longer.

I'm still not used to waking up and having things just appear.

I fell asleep on the couch this afternoon and when I woke up there was Anakin's Padawan bread on the coffee table. A little weird and unexpected, but kind of cute at the same time? Yeah, not completely sure how to sum that one up, but I am so very glad he doesn't have this braided rattail in real life.

But the best part was the fact that underneath the braid was a lightsaber. I have the vague memory of Anakin giving me his lightsaber to prove that our relationship is the most important thing to him. I'm definitely surprised to see it here, but I'm also super excited.

Watch out world, I have a lightsaber.

This is good to know for any new dads or soon to be dads. I knew some of those, but there are some I wish I'd known when I was eighteen. I'm sure that some of them are different for everyone cause Lian slept in my bed a lot as a baby, but she always slept fine in her crib when I did put her in there instead.

CRAP I DID VALENTINE'S DAY ALL WRONG and apparently hella dangerously. Next year, I'll use these Tips from Dr. Oz, because clearly he knows everything and I don't want to have a testicle funeral.

Isabela's about eighteen weeks along (four and a half months for those not on Baby Time) with the Littlest Rand. Is it too early to buy cute clothes? I wanna buy tiny shoes.

In the midst of the ash and chaos, I welcomed a...small bundle of joy? into the world. I'm not sure what the young are called. Pups? Its mother was a beast of burden and faithful companion in my dream world, similar to a horse or camel. Her name is Rooh and I've decided to call her wee one Owen. I think it's a male, anyway.

So meditation when you're agitated is pretty near impossible. Maybe I'm not helping by obsessing but I can't seem to make myself quit no matter what I do. Every attempted distraction just comes back around to seeing her in his arms, seeing him worry over her when she had been poisoned, and my rage at the lot of them and their Confederacy. These dreams are going to drive me crazy, I swear and there's very little I can do about it. All I can think to do is let it out before I make myself worse, so here it is:

If Rush Clovis, or any member of the Trade Federation or Separatist, or really anyone else, puts a hand on my wife again I will gut them.

Not sure if that will help, but I do feel a little better.

I attempted to make heart-shaped pancakes this morning. But they came out looking...rather unsavory. They looked like ball sacks when you turned them upside down. I also burned the eggs. I'm hopeless in the kitchen.

In light of everything my dream self has done that the Council knows about I can't help but think they're being incredibly stupid by giving me a padawan, no matter what Obi-wan says. They think this is the way to teach me responsibility, which is frankly ridiculous as since I became a Jedi I have felt the weight of the whole damn galaxy on my shoulders thanks to that stupid prophecy. And then they worry about my 'problematic sense of attachment' but then they assign me a little girl to watch over and train in the middle of a war.

If I somehow manage to keep this kid alive, which I'm not exactly confident I'll be able to do, what sort of Jedi will she turn out to be? But then I guess, if everything that Obi-wan said will happen happens then I won't have to worry over it for long.

Well, according to my doctor, I'm at week thirteen. I can't believe I've already been pregnant for three bloody months. My app still says I'm in the first trimester, though. I thought that I'd be in the second at twelve weeks. I don't know. Just glad all seems like it's going according to plan, and that Atton's not hovering too badly. I'm still going to work until it's not safe to. I'm just glad I'm not throwing up anymore!

This is a cute idea, a stay-at-home-dad who leaves Post-Its for his wife, detailing his day. I think when I end up Mr. Dad and staying at home with the kid I made with Isabela (NEVER going to get tired of saying that), I'm going to do this too.

So I might have picked the absolute worst time to give my wife my lightsaber as a show of love for her and dedication to our relationship (no Atton, I literally gave her my lightsaber, you're going to be a father, you shouldn't have such a dirty mind), but I still managed to save all but one of the Senators. Though really, you have a harder time getting into Dex's when he's got a special on Jawa Juice than this bounty hunter had getting into the Galactic Senate building and taking it over. I really hope Washington has better security because I am not in the mood to fly up there and save them if they get taken hostage.

Also, I hate Cad Bane.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to do any construction work today...and possibly for a few days longer. Weeks? I hope not very long at all, but there's no predicting how long my current circumstances will last. There too much of I risk I will injure myself in this state.

Does it still count as phantom pain when you feel your arm getting lopped off in a dream when you lost the same arm here? I woke up with it stinging and burning and all you can really do for that is take a pain killer and hope it acts like some kind of placebo. At least I'm not feeling any after effects from the force lighting, not even static electricity.

Also, note to self and really any one else who finds themselves fighting along side Obi-wan Kenobi against a Sith Lord: When he says 'No, Anakin (or whatever your name is), don't!' listen to him. You might actually get to keep all your limbs and not have your ass handed to you by an old man.

[Obi-wan]
So. Geonosis. I think that could have probably gone better. What happened to Dooku? I thought he retired when he left the Order, how and when did he become a Sith?

Nice going Jedi council. Send the teenage padawan you feel is dangerous, arrogant and overly emotional off alone with the most beautiful senator in the galaxy. Of course they instantly start flirting. Forget merely breaking the Code, he's gonna smash it into a thousand pieces if Padme ever lets on that she might have feelings for him too.

So say you accidentally burned through some drywall and a stud or two with a lightsaber. Does anyone know if that would be easy to repair or if I should just take the hit and accept that I will never get my deposit back.

You know what, I don't even care. I had a very pleasant dream and woke up with a lightsaber. This is an awesome day.

I think I might swing down to the grocery store, pick up some fruit. Anybody want to come play an awesome version of fruit ninja with me?

Good afternoon. My name is Kreia. I come from England, but I spend my winters here in Orange County. The cold is better for my arthritis.

The young woman who set up this account for me seemed astonished that I knew what a "listserv" and a "security key" were. Just because I appear to be an elderly lady does not mean that all my brain cells have died off. For those of you who can accept that and not talk to me like an old fool, I am pleased in advance to meet you.

I've realized that when I wear certain hats, a knit for example, I look far too much like a hipster. An old hipster. At what point did wearing a beard become a fashion statement of that sort? Almost makes me want to shave mine off... not really, of course. But I don't enjoy shopping--never really have--and worrying that I'm accidentally putting together something that looks like a costume.

Okay, so Qui-gon says I'm the 'chosen one'. So that along with the fact that mother claimed I had no father, I'm calling it now: I'm space Jesus. It totally makes sense.

Oh, and Obi-wan and the Jedi Council think I'm dangerous. Technically I'm a nine year old boy but I've still managed to spook a bunch of Jedi. I won't lie, I'm very happy for the kid, managing that.

So, yes. Anyone who can help, I'd be grateful, and also pay for the lesson(s).

My name is Ezio Auditore da Firenze, though you may drop the last bit. I am a clinical psychologist who works with researchers at UCLA, though I also see patients three days per week. My job, it is fascinating, and I come to America from Italy because, well, you have more people here, so more people will need my services. No?

I look forward to meeting all of you.

1. Jedi lie. I didn't know they were allowed to do that. I thought the guardians of peace and justice would also include honesty as one of their tenets. Ah well, learn something new every day/dream, like beautiful young women leading armies into battle, that was an interesting dream within a dream.

2. I forgot how much I actually miss building things. I might have to dig out my tools and materials and put something together this coming weekend, maybe something like a Roomba, only better. Or a gardening robot now that I have space for a garden, I don't know, we'll see how I feel at the time.
