I know I shouldn't really be surprised anymore but when things have been quiet for a while I completely forget how strange this county can be.

I saw the strangest group of people walking through the town this morning. They seemed nice and nobody bothered them. But I can't help wondering if this is leading to something a little less...calm.

Who knew finding a job after being on house arrest would be so hard? I've got to disclose all of that information and employers would rather hire someone who doesn't have a criminal record, go figure. I think it's back to the club with me. Are any of my regulars still on this thing?

Dear network,

If you could travel anywhere in the world and spend a year there exploring and settling into the way of life, where would it be?

Follow up question: Why did you chose this place?

Love,

Even in my dreams, I'm the fucking bad guy. Guess I ain't surprised. I'm kinda glad that no one in my dreams is here.

Trying to kill my friends and shit. Working for the baddie.

I know this will sound weird, especially since I'm me, but I can't wait for summer. I'm starting college soon, so it'll be my last real summer vacation ever. (I'm going to go to summer school, I want to knock my BS out in three years.)

So this summer I'm doing nothing. I'm goofing off and drinking overpriced coffee drinks and sitting with my boyfriend and kicking his ass in Bananagrams.

I have to be a contender for 'worst dreams in the universe' right now.

Living for millennia and seeing your comrades die over and over again, and being completely and utterly barred from so much as touching them. An eternity of solitude in the cold mists of time. It's one of the cruellest fates I can think of. And that's not even mentioning what comes after

And the dreams are back. This one wasn't so bad. In fact it was kind of interesting. I wound up in a city called Gotham and there was an earthquake, which leveled most of it and it was cut off from everything else. I was working with a group of people to keep the citizens safe. I wound up saving the life of a man who was the Commissioner of the city then I became a super hero. They called me Batgirl.

The really strange part about the whole thing was that the woman who was in my dream, do I was working for, is the same woman I ran into while walking Ginger the other day. So now I'm not sure if it really was one of the dreams or just any other random dream.

[Locked From Scoot]


[info]daringwaistcoat

So Valarnet. I've got a little project for us to organize here. I'm pretty sure most of us saw Scoot's post yesterday. If not, he's a really awesome kid who is going to be having surgery at the beginning of next month. I know it's kind of short notice, but I saw someone else mentioning setting up a care package for him, and I'm thinking we can add to that.

Having been there, where you can't really get up and do a lot of stuff, or are zonked out on pain meds to the point you're not doing a lot, it seems like the best thing to do is watch bad movies and I've got the impression he doesn't have a lot of those. Not to go giving out personal information but he's kind of lacking a lot of STUFF these days, and well.

I was thinking we could start up a bad movie collection to give Scoot something to do while he's recovering. Obviously, we're gonna need to coordinate so we don't end up with ten copies of The Incredible Mr. Limpet or something, and a place to drop them off, I'm thinking directly with his awesome girlfriend, but ideas? Thoughts? You can comment here if you'd like to help.

But let's give him an awesome recovery, yeah?

So I have a surgery scheduled for the April Sixth. Never thought this day would come. And I'm so nervous.

Is going under scary? Or what? Because I'm totally going to punch a wall from dysphoriaanxiety if it's too scary.

Please don't ask what the surgery is for, I'm bad at excuses for things.

Having a housemate has taken some getting used to, but having Darcy around has actually been nice. I haven't lived with anyone since my parents during the summers when I was at Harvard, so it was a bit of an adjustment, but my house finally feels lived in.

I'm debating whether or not to attend Tony's party at Disneyland. I've never been before and I'm sure it would be fun, but I'm undecided.

So, bachelor parties. Or specifically, mine.

Before you ask, no, there won't be strippers (unless Thor gets drunk and loses his pants, which I put the odds at 50/50) but I fully intend for it to be an awesome night. Renting out Disneyland for the night, starting at Midnight and going until dawn.

Men, women, whatever. Gender friendly and I am going to personally buy you all mouse ears, all right?

And you will wear them.

This Friday. Be there.

SEVEN DAYS UNTIL THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY.

We just thought we'd remind you. There will be more details soon about party + venue + everything we expect from life, and everything you promised us.

In the meantime:

Tonks: Hope the rest of your birthday went well!
Percy: You're coming to our party. You do not have a choice in the matter.
Ginny: Ready for charity work and favors from us in return? We're thinking Wednesday.
Percy's Better Half: Read above. Minus the favor part.
Hermione: ... We got nothing. We just wanted to include you in our list.
Verity: Hi. We can see you working. Over there. Behind that thing. Yeah. You.

EDIT:
Midna Not-Weasley: BRONCHITIS: Ain't nobody got time for it.

Things have really started picking up at work, which is wonderful. They've given me a much busier beat and my own byline.

Every day seems a little better than the last, which I'm very grateful for. I hope everyone else is enjoying the same run of luck.

Meanwhile, my costume showed up in my closet today. It's tighter and curvier than I was expecting. Though I'm not sure what I was expecting exactly.

Fucking shit! I don't know what the hell you people are on here, but this Wonderland trippy crap needs to be over. I just got fucking mugged walking down the street by a playing card. He stopped me, pushed me, asked who I was, and when I tried to turn away, he grabbed my fucking purse off my shoulder.

I don't know where law enforcement or the military or whatever are here, but they better be handling the Goddamn problem. How can anyone do business here?

At this rate, if anyone teaches self defense, I'd be interested.

Well I suppose not, since it's on legit news stations.

God this world is terrible, well my thoughts go out to her and her family. I hope she's okay... where ever she is.

Missed ringing in the New Year entirely. Or maybe I didn't, but I don't remember it. I've just come to in ... Not actually sure where. Posting via my phone and battery is in critical condition. Got detoured on my way to Fullerton.

I've made a plan of action (a rarity, I know): 1) Locate tylenol and orange juice; 2) Discover location; 3) Hopefully acquire funds from friends to take a bus home or plead to my horrible parents to come rescue me.

I think 2013's going to be fantastic.

Hi! I was told this network is for OC residents to get together and stuff, so I thought I'd post. I'm Lorna Dane, I just moved to Newport Beach this week. I'm a Libra, and I have my masters in Botany! Yay, me!

Anyway, I wanted to say hello, and invite everyone to a preview of my new shop on New Years Eve. I'm the owner and soon-to-be operator of Grassroots, which will be a pot dispensary and also have crafts for sale. Until the place actually opens I can't sell any pot, but (amusingly enough), the number one thing I got from the local crafters when I put out the word to them was pots. So we have those. Plus, I can give you plant advice!

There will also be free drinks and a snack bar. If we don't all die in a horrible way that the Mayans tried to warn us about, please come in and check the place out! The party starts at six, and we'll serve snacks until we run out or people have mostly dispersed to the bars.

Yes, for those of you who have been asking, Luke's is going to be open on Thanksgiving. We're only serving one thing for breakfast, lunch & dinner though. Turkey. If you don't like it don't come.

Someone has to feed the cooking-challenged of Tustin. I'm pretty sure at least one family would starve to death if I closed the diner for a day.

I got this rental while my car is in the shop and it's called an Avenger. How cool is that? I kind of feel like a badass in it. It drives like a boat though. I like my little Mazda. It handles so much better than this thing.

Is it too corny to wear a flower in your breast pocket to a job interview for a flower shop? I almost always wear flowers so it's not like it's abnormal for me, but they don't know that.

I've been posting ads in the local newspapers and on the UCI website, but I figured this is as good a place as any. Actually, it's probably the best place to look for candidates considering people on this network seem to be so much more open about their dreams.

I'm looking for 5 to 10 human participants for a clinical trial I am putting together. The trial is regarding the dreams, so having them is a must. It involves spending nights at the my medical facility in UCI and answering questions. There is a fair amount of pay involved and it can be negotiated depending upon what the participant would be willing to do (I'm looking into doing some sleep deprivation trials as well, for example).

If you have these dreams and are interested in earning some extra cash for simply having them and letting me study observe you, then please let me know so we can discuss it further.

Thank you.

You know, I wasn't going to post but I'm still pissed off after last night, so it's going up here anyway. Cope. You people missed reading Bullshit Roy Can Do Without even if you haven't admitted it to yourselves. So. Today's topic. People Who Think They Can Tell Me What To Do Just Because They're Older.

Uh no. Unless you're a cop, or I'm working for you, I'm not actually obligated to listen or to give a fuck about what you're saying. Sometimes I do give one. When it's important or you're my friend and I actually care enough to ask for your advice or you give it to me and I decide to listen to you. But the listening part? That's completely my choice here. I do not have to sit there and take it, I do not HAVE to allow you to micromanage my life, and you treat me like a little kid, and I'm REALLY not required to deal with it.

There's no law that says I have to take being disrespected and that I'm not allowed to disrespect you right back in your face no matter who's there watching if you pull that shit. There's no law that says I owe you any fucking thing if you treat me like that and I don't HAVE to take it, and right now? I'm not gonna.

In other words? I'll respect you when you respect me and not before. Two way fucking street, People. Deal with it.

Congratulations, by the way, to all the Olympians on the Valarnet. You had some very invested firefighters cheering you on.
