Unlike most everyone else, I wasn't watching the Oscars last night. Instead, I was watching a new documentary on the Science Channel called Lost Beasts of the Ice Age. Being an Evolutionary Developmental Biologist, this was like right up my alley of interests. And holy shit the things these scientists discovered was beyond amazing.

They found an in tact Cave Lion cub, fur and all, which is extremely rare to find. There was a severed and fully in tact head of a Steppe Wolf which has never before been found. And, of course, they found plenty of Woolly Mammoth remains. They managed to get one of the best DNA samples of a mammoth ever found and they believe they can fully sequence the genome of it now, which just freaking blows my mind. Actually this whole program blew my mind, but yeah. It really is an amazing thing to watch and I highly recommend it to anyone who's interested in the subject.

I just found the Best. T-shirt. Ever. I mean, look at it! Oregon Trail meets Jurassic Park. It doesn't get much better than that! So of course I ordered myself one because it's only available today. Now I want to play Oregon Trail and figure out how to get velociraptors into it...

Remember the holidays when you were a kid? Getting all anxious and excited about if you were good enough to get that ONE toy you really, really, REALLY wanted. Waking up on Christmas morning really early and tiptoeing downstairs to see that he brought you...watching cartoons in your PJs while mum made breakfast. (Or maybe you guys had different traditions)

And now holidays are here and gone in a flash. They're stressful and chaotic and you don't really get to enjoy it like you did.

I feel like Christmas JUST ended and I'm able to catch my breath. Between flying back home to see mum and then coming back here to jump right back into work and get back into my California groove, I don't really know what month we're in. It's almost February, isn't it?!

Apparently Eliot and I are the worst when it comes to relationships because neither of us can think of anything to do for Valentine's Day. We've been talking about going somewhere, but can't decide on a place at such short notice. Any suggestions would be really bloody helpful. One thing we don't want is snow. That's the one thing we can agree on.

So, yesterday would have been Stan Lee's 96th birthday. Am I the only one who's still pretty much in mourning? T___T

May he Rest in Peace. The man gave the world so many things! Good comics, from which they made amazing television and movies. And he had such a great sense of humor! I only wish that I can make such a positive impact on so many lives!

I watched one of the movies based on his comics yesterday. Did anyone else remember him and his birthday yesterday?

Okay, middle of the night question time! What are the strange or random things that you look up on Youtube? For me, I like watching urban explorer videos. Especially when it's about abandoned malls or amusement parks. It's always so fascinating to see what these places become. It's also always interesting to see the complete lack of originality in the graffiti that is always covering these places. Can't people be a little more creative than bloody pot leafs or penises?

I'm so glad I went to the salon before all of this crazy stuff started happening. I can only imagine what sort of things are happening there now. I mean, if it's anything like the lab or clinic, it's got to be a nightmare. I'm just hoping that we don't have any emergencies that we won't be able to handle cause our equipment doesn't want to cooperate.

Well, being ten years old again was not exactly on my list of things to do. Jemma and Natasha, I'm sorry for all the questions and talking your ears off about dinosaurs and everything. At least I'm back to the right age now? And BEFORE the wedding?

You all have no idea how glad I am that this whole age regression thing didn't affect me. The last thing I would want is to suddenly wake up as a kid again. I was an extremely awkward child. Just ask Sarah or Mrs. S. It is not something I want to live through again.

Three weeks from tomorrow Jemma and I are getting married. I both can't believe it's that close, and yet also so far away. I'm both excited and a bit nervous. It's a big step, but I'm more than happy to be marrying the woman I love.

And at least we have the best wedding planner helping us out so that cuts down on the stress! ;)

This is bloody hilarious! I might just have to buy one for myself, Eliot and Margo. I have a feeling that both of them would get a kick out of this too. I mean, who doesn't want a tiny penis stress reliever? Alright, so there's probably some of you who wouldn't, but I wanted to share it cause I thought that some of you would also get a kick out of it and want to get one too.

Normally I like to think of dream!Felix as being the one with the most common sense, but this time I can definitely understand why S and Sarah were so upset. Since Sarah and Kira still aren't safe, they're staying in a safe house with Mrs. S and I decided to bring my new found bio sister over there. Of course Sarah was also upset with me because of the whole Adele thing and because she didn't believe that Adele was really my half sister, she got Scott to secretly do a DNA test on us and it came back saying we were related, like I'd been insisting the entire time.

I'm glad that while Sarah and I have had some pretty big disagreements in the past, we've never had one quite like this from the dreams.

Going to be moving in with Eliot and Margo as of the end of next month so I need to figure out what I'm doing with my current furniture. Most of it was bought when Sarah and Kira moved out here and we got the bigger flat. Might be taking the sofa and swapping out theirs with mine, but other than that, I'm not sure. Anyone out there need any furniture? Tell me what you need and I'll tell you if I have it to spare.

Speaking of Eliot, I took this picture the last time we went out and I've been thinking of making it my phone background for awhile.

You know, there's optimism and then there's optimism! Dream!me got settled into her dingy and very very tiny apartment. Loud neighbors, weird landlady, the whole works. Does that dissuade her from her big calling to the big city? NEVER!

She loves it all. I'm in love with dream me.

Does that sound as full of myself as I think?

Okay, I have to say that the fact they've mapped the genome of ancient Egyptians and got unexpected results is kind of blowing my mind right now. Apparently they were more closely related to people from the Near East, Anatolia and Eastern Mediterranean Europeans as opposed to modern Egyptians being more closely related to sub-Saharan populations. This kind of changes the history of that area and how ancient humans migrated around.

Oh poor, sweet Donnie. This whole Neolution thing has led us to a fertility clinic and since Beth had already been there, in the past, Alison couldn't go in with Donnie, so me and him went in, posing as prospective parents. I had to stop Donnie from acting gay, because he would have given the game away. That might still happen of course. I didn't get to see how this ends. Last thing that happened was that we were both asked for a sperm sample since we both said we were going to be the father. Alison should have going over this better with Donnie.

Before that, in my search for my real family, I found my biological half sister. Her name is Adele and she's American. Kind of makes me wonder if I have any other family out there.

I totally gotta say that as an Evolutionary Developmental Biologist, that little trip to the past, whether it was a dream or whatever, was so freaking amazing!! I mean, aside from the fact I was only armed with a spoon, but at least Jemma had a weapon. But to see some of those animals blew my freaking mind. Kinda wish I'd had my cell phone with me so I could've taken pictures or gotten video! Oh well, at least I'll have the memories of it.

Sometimes this whole dream thing can backfire. Anyone ever have an experience of dreaming of other people, then you sit down to, say, watch a television show or something and you see someone who looks exactly like someone from your dreams but it's not and then that show is ruined for you? Yeah, totally had that experience.

So to top everything off, I have a bully.

And guess what kind of animal he is? (For the record, I'm an adorable fluffy bunny in my dreams)

It's bad enough when your parents don't want you to do something new and different, but to have a bully literally push you to the ground and tell you it'd never happen?

Can't dream me catch a break? Won't someone believe in me??

So, these dreams. They're supposed to be some other life, right? With just enough similarities you know it's yours. Then there's the weird shit, like hunting monsters and shooting the boss's daughter with a rocket launcher.

At some point, you can't ignore it right? But what is the point?

Over the last few days I've had this irrational anger towards my sister. I say it's irrational because she didn't do anything here other than decide to move back to England and I'm definitely not mad at her about that. It's what happened in the dreams, which isn't even her fault either. There was no way she could have known that the LEDA DNA came from Mrs. S's mother. I'm just upset that it means her, Mrs. S and Kira are actually related and I feel like I'm on the sidelines. I was so angry at them in the dreams that I even went so far as to try and find my birth family cause I felt like there was no longer any place for me with them.

Bloody hell. I fell asleep at work while going over plans for an upcoming wedding. These people can be so bloody exhausting. Ended up having new dreams during my nap though.

Found out that the Castor original might be in England, so me, Sarah and Mrs. S went home to try and find him. It was really strange seeing London, in my dreams. It's been years since I've been back and it kind of makes me want to go for a visit. Anyway, turns out that the Castor original was actually Mrs. S's mother, which I already knew from a conversation I had with Cosima a couple of months ago. Turned out, she'd absorbed a male twin in the womb so she had two sets of DNA and was not only the Castor original, but the Leda original too. So, long story short, she could help Cosima.

We brought her back. Found out that Gracie was the one who tipped Castor off about what we were doing and was with Mark, one of the Castor clones. Sarah and I found out where they were and I kicked down the door, which was really fucking badass! Never tried to kick down a door before, but I might have to sometime.

We got Mark to come back with us and help us get Castor off our tails. Ferdinand was none too happy to find out that he'd been double crossed too and while Helena killed Rudy, another Castor clone, Ferdinand killed the Castor lackey.

After that, Alison won her election for school trustee and we had a celebratory dinner then Sarah, Kendall and Mrs. S all went to Iceland where Kira and her dad were. So I stayed behind with the other Sestras and hopefully we get a break after all of this.

Now I should get back to this wedding planning.

i have no idea how i missed it for this long, but i just discovered this movie called machete and it is the funniest thing i have ever watched. the priest is basically the best part of the whole thing.

there's a sequel, too! machete kills. i am totally watching it once i'm done with machete. this is basically the best thing i've ever found. who doesn't like a good movie where a guy kills the bad guys with a machete pretty much the majority of the time?

Is there a special reason why college text books are so expensive? Are they printed in gold leaf? Printed on gold leaf? I’ve never bought a book this expensive before, and I’ve got the big, giant complete collection books of Poe and Shakespeare from Barnes and Noble with gold edges and a boxed set of the Utena manga. I never thought I'd pay more for any book than I did for those.

There is someone outside in the courtyard. I assume they're talking on the phone, but they're talking extremely loud and calling someone a bitch a lot. She clearly isn't happy with whoever she's talking to. However, does she really have to do this outside where practically everyone in the complex can hear her?

Also, I did a thing today )

And just when you least expect it, dreams present themselves. My dreams are a big steaming mess right now. Sarah is missing. Cosima is pining. The Fish People's daughter is staying with us and I got to threaten Rachel. I won't lie, threatening Rachel was the highlight of this set. After that bitch drugged me and probably has something to do with Sarah's disappearance, watching that bitch fall apart was the best part.

My family can't make it out here this year for Christmas, so if I want their gifts to make it across country by Christmas I have to finish their shopping soon. Considering how unpredictable weather is in New England and there'a a good chance we'll probably get snow again, I need to get it all sent out soon. I might try and do most of it on Amazon or elsewhere online cause then I can just have it sent to my parents' house and don't have to deal with the post office here.

I'm also debating on whether or not I'm gonna get a full tree or a small tree this year.
