I went to one of those wine and painting classes last night. It was something my friends and I used to do once a week back in NOLA. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I forgot how much fun this was.

I may have started decorating for Christmas!

Baxter's will be open until 12pm on Thanksgiving! I know there will be a need for some coffee before everyone tucks in for that big turkey dinner! No plans myself, but I figure I'd be able to find something. Maybe some Chinese food, just for giggles.

Also, my two part dream finally ended. Don't worry, I helped save the world.

Oh my god! Are people seriously complaining about the Starbucks cups? What even makes them think that the hands are supposed to belong to lesbians? They're drawings of hands. There's nothing on them to specify a gender. People are seriously ridiculous. They will find any reason to complain about Starbucks' holiday cups.

Okay, that's the last time I have jalapeno vodka before bed. I'm done. Whatever the hell THAT nightmare was, it won't stop coming back to me. Kind of like how the spicy thai place down the road 'repeats' on me.

Okay. I take it back. My Dreams did figure out a way to make things even more awkward for my real life. Apparently DreamJess decided it was a good idea to move in with her boyfriend. Of a year. That she'd only met when they got set up on a blind date.

Waking up to find a page from a really old book on your end table is weird and also a little creepy.

I guess a piece of paper is better than any more dreams.

I think I got overthrown in my dreams. Like a coup.

They came for me in my beautiful ice palace after I made my sister leave. I think a couple of those guards were actually trying to kill me.

[Filtered away from the Mikaelsons & Marcel]

More dreams of the past. It is truly unusual to see myself in such curious outfits. And now I am in New Orleans. I am apparently well known for my suits even in the dreams. I believe it was, "Original vampire, always wears suits. Of course I know who you are". Some things are rather the same. Some things seem rather different

My brother seems to have gotten a girl pregnant, which is impossible for a vampire, but something to do with his being a hybrid seems to have made it possible. I showed the girl Hayley our entire history. Once that was over, I was informed that I was there to make Niklaus do what the witches wanted of him. Naturally Niklaus does not believe that he is having a child, nor does he care to be told what to do. He doesn't even care that he has a child. Or rather, he refuses to care that he has one. I think I am forcing him to care in the end. Pretending that a baby can fix everything. As if a child could be our saving grace. As if we should ask a child to save us.

I am easily manipulated by the idea of family. Not that this is at all surprising given my history. Why be any different?

I am exhausted just watching myself make bad decisions all the time. I fear it will be an ongoing pattern considering it has been going on for this long already. I truly wish sometimes that I could actually drink enough for it to do anything. Alas.

Naturally, other things do not change and I was daggered again. What a true delight. Again with the talk about how love does not bring you power and family and mercy make you weak.

Can someone tell me what it means when someone has 'classic lines'? 'Cause this lady saw me on campus the other day and spent half an hour begging me to come pose for her drawing class because I had "such beautiful classic lines". I gave her my number just to get her to go away and she hasn't stopped calling me all weekend, so I guess you could say it's been a poseitively weird time for the last few days.

How's everyone else's long weekend goin'? And would anyone else with 'classic lines' like to pose for this lady so she'll maybe leave me alone?

I've been debating whether or not to step back from the day to day operations for Taste of Home and just come in a few days a week instead of 16 hour days. Pretty sure I've burned myself out a bit over the last few years. It's not like I need to bust ass to make sure it stays open, we're thriving.

But I can't exactly manage to do more than step outside the door for more than a few hours before I find myself back in the kitchen.

I'm utterly hopeless. Someone come lock me away for a few weeks somewhere. Until then:




Apple pies and Apple Pies in Apples are now happening.

And here I make my first post on this cesspool of a website as a married man. Quite exciting, no? Thanks to those who came out to the Roger and surrounding private beach last night - we didn't finish our raucous until the wee morning hours, in fact. It was nice to see friends and family who were both here already and those who returned to celebrate with us. The pictures are still a work in progress but I'll show one of the unprofessional variety.

cut for image )

I'm either quite glad to be married or out of the ceremony clothes, or my bum just got grabbed again.

But at any rate, Regina and I will leave for our honeymoon in a week or so. When we return, I'd like to get cracking with a new temporary assistant at JR Investigations, so, if you're interested in PI work give me a shout. Perhaps if things work out it can become permanent - business is booming, after all.

Hello everyone. The whole social media concept is still a bit new to me. However, I have been in the area for almost a month and haven’t met all that many people. I figured this might be a good way to start.

I’m Vincent. Just moved here from France. I will be teaching Philosophy at UC Irvine this coming semester, but I am also looking for a non profit to volunteer for. Disadvantaged youth is my area of expertise and passion if any of you can recommend some that are looking for help.

Oh, right, this thing does exist, doesn't it? It's been a minute since I've posted. Killian and I are wrapping the last of the wedding details and got some photos back from our engagement photoshoot - it wasn't anything terribly sappy like looking into each other's eyes with a sunset backdrop, no. The spoofs/gag reel of it was entertaining, and this one brings me back to the eighties. I'll never make that face in my life again.

My dreams have finished but aren't forever done, I don't think. My Evil Queen counterpart of my dream counterpart (confusing, yes, I'm aware) became her own person and frolicked off with an evil version of Robin Hood with a ring on her finger. I'm forever stuck with my now magic less sister whose...still in the picture, not entirely sure how but she is. Overall, I'll just enjoy whatever break I have between that round of dreams and the new ones. Weddings, first baby birthdays, all those exciting milestones.

I'll be trying out this Apprentice's Wand for a very distanced trip soon. If it can transport us to realms in one piece then I'm confident it can make it to Spain. Here's hoping it doesn't hiccup and drop is on Oz or Wonderland, that'd be our luck.

You know, aside from having a Facebook that I use mostly to look at car pictures, I can't say I've ever used one of these social media things. One of my coworkers pointed me here after my babysitter bailed last minute and I had to bring my kid brother into work with me.

So, guess I should introduce myself. Name's Leon, 24, and I'm single, ladies. I like surfing, football, basketball, baseball, cars, and locking up criminals.

Oh, and I'm looking for a cheap (like, really cheap. Not that I'm broke or anything. I could still take a girl out for a nice dinner), reliable babysitter who can watch a kid during strange hours until the end of the month.

I think it's time to start considering daycare for Mareena during the day. There are things I need to do with the club in the moring hours before we open at night, plus helping her learn to socialize with other children--well---babies--can't be the worst thing int he world.

Do any parents have recommendations?

Minako I swear if this place isn't as entertaining as you told me I am never going to forgive you. No. I'll totally forgive you. But you'll have to go to the book store with me and stay as long as I want without making a single comment about the books I look at.

And then buy me froyo.

I should probably introduce myself on here huh? I'm Alice Liddell.

Why does Siri know the words Bohemian Rhapsody, but she can't tell me how to get to Sesame Street?

Seriously, tell Siri "I see a little silhouette of a man" and listen to what she says.

Then ask her how you get to Sesame Street and she'll send you to South Africa or something.

Hard to believe that in exactly a month, I'll be married. If you'd asked me whether or not I thought I'd be here about three years ago, I'd have laughed wholeheartedly. Ah, how things change. But at least for this wedding (unlike in my dreamland - plus that wedding was officiated by Jiminy Cricket and interrupted by a curse or something, what else is new), it'll happily involve my very first love. The ocean, and my ship. The Roger's all ready to go to host a gathering and most are invited provided that you don't act like a twat. Or try to curse us because I will bloody well kill you.

Our daughter's also turning one a week later, so while we'll spend our wedding night someplace fun the trip to Spain won't come until after we've celebrated with her and friends. She's already got an outfit but she needs a wee cake to smash, I presume. Something not with baby fondant, if anyone's got suggestions.

So, on my way home from school today, I slipped on some ice like a block away from the house and somehow managed to twist my ankle. I'm obviously not used to walking on ice. I've had it elevated with an ice pack most of the afternoon, which makes it difficult to do quite a few things. I'm hoping the swelling goes down by tomorrow, so I can go to school and won't have to go to the hospital.

I thought that it wasn't supposed to snow in California. Having moved here from New Orleans, I'm not prepared for snow at all. I don't actually have a winter jacket. Not a heavy one anyway. This is incredibly bizarre, but kind of cool too, because I've only seen real snow less than a handful of times.

I had another dream last night. I was woken up in the middle of the night by a witch doing a spell to try and hurt Marcel and some other vampires cause I could feel it. Whatever caused me to know when a witch was doing a spell, it caused me to draw their picture, which was how we knew exactly who it was. I was worried about Marcel though cause I didn't know what had happened after I couldn't feel the witch anymore, but Marcel came back while I was leaning over Elijah's coffin and Marcel told me that he was going to give Elijah back to Klaus, but I refused to let him. I didn't want to let him give Elijah back until I knew how to kill the Old Ones, which is what I called them.

Before, it was Marcel that I didn't like in the dreams, but after this one, I don't like my dream self. I'm so full of hate, I could never be like that in real life.

Hi, Valarnet. My name is Hazel Grace Lancaster, but you can just call me Hazel. I've heard this is THE place to be on the Interwebs, so here I am.

wow, that was lame

Are there any other book lovers on here? I am completely obsessed with post-apocalyptic fiction right now. I don't know what it is about that genre that has sucked me in, but I think it's really interesting to see all the different versions of the future. So many of them are realistic in the sense that you can see it really happening. I guess it makes me wonder what the world will really be like 150 years from now. I know I won't be around to see it and that's kind of sad, but I still like trying to imagine it.

Okay, so, I've been going through the Valar archives but I haven't found this yet, so I'm hoping to crowdsource.

Has anyone who has memories/dreams of being possessed--by anything; a demon, a spirit, whatever--also been possessed by that same demon/spirit in this universe? Is that possible?

I finally had another dream. As a result of the ritual that almost killed me, I could feel the power of all the witches in New Orleans, so Marcel was using me to keep tabs on the other witches. If anyone did magic, I knew about it. An old friend of Marcel's came back to New Orleans too and he made a bargain with Marcel and we ended up with his brother, daggered in a coffin for me to keep an eye on. Marcel's friend's sister showed up after, with Marcel, but I erased her memory of where we were.

I'm not sure how I feel about these dreams. I didn't like the first few and now I like this one even less. I don't like thinking of Marcel acting like that. He's not like that in real life.

Well, crap. Parents decided it's an awesome idea to fly down from Alaska before the semester starts to 'see how I'm doing.' It's code for them trying at another round of convincing me to either join the military or med school.

Strangely enough, I find that the more violent and disturbing my dreams become, the more I turn to my kitchen for comfort.

Not comfort eating, exactly, but comfort cooking. I prepare elaborate meals at three in the morning, only to pick at a bite or two before disposing of it and returning to bed. Such a waste of good food, but I've never been a fan of left-overs.

Perhaps I should channel my energies into a dinner party.

So... okay. People have weird, physical things from the dreams, right? Not just things that show up, but... deformities? No, that's wrong. physical changes to a person's body? Because I woke up with wings. And Pixie Dust.

I had a really long dream last night. One of my former fairy friends showed me that she knew how to manipulate pixie dust, but she got yelled at by Fairy Gary (who was a bit of a dick, btw.) and then she went off. Like, a year later she showed up again, stole dust, changed my talent and did all kinds of weird stuff. Then there was a pirate ship and... Captain Hook. He was the Fairy, Zarina's, first mate. But it turns out he was using her, so I had to save her and then we stole back the dust, and convinced her to come home with us.

Long dream. And I woke up with ... I woke up with wings.

I've been thinking about the dreams and reading what everyone has written about their own dreams and I was wondering who else dreams about being a witch or can do magic in their dreams? I don't really know much about what kind of witch I am in my dreams except that I was in a coven that tried to sacrifice me. What I'm really curious about though is if I'll eventually become a witch. I think it'd be kind of cool to be able to do magic.

I've also been thinking about what a few people said in my last post and was wondering if anyone knew if there were any book clubs around. Or if anyone was interested in starting one.

Well my friends, since my family is originally from France, around here we celebrate Bastille Day as well as the Fourth of July :)!

So my parents have allowed me to host a party tomorrow, for all my friends here on the network! Anyone who'd like to come can come, so long as you wear your party best!

It will be at [address], tomorrow night starting at 7pm. Food and drinks provided.

Even General LaMarque is dressing up, though I haven't decided which outfit to put him in, yet. What do you all think?

After making crowns for myself and Courfeyrac, I decided they were far too pretty not to make a few more! Though instead of crowns and tiaras like I did for me, I decided to make them a little more simple, for those of you who don't want a full head of flowers.

I'm really very pleased with how they all turned out. And such fun to make! I wear my tiara to class all the time!

I ended up making four, so first come first serve. Who would like a flower headband :)?
