We sometimes leave Food Network on for background noise when we're not watching something in particular at the apartment, and Guys Grocery Games was on while I was working on something, so I was only half listening to start with and this may be my fault for mishearing. But this one guy had this really thick French accent, and I have no idea what he actually said. But my brain interpreted it as "sautee the muppet." And I am about 98% sure that THAT can't be right.

Someone needs to explain to Orange County that April Fools Day pranks are only funny when it's April Fools Day. I want my fiancee back in his normal body.

Hey, Orange County, thanks for what has to be the absolute worst belated birthday gift I've ever gotten! Maybe next time just send a freaking gift card. Or not even bother at all. I don't know which is worse, the way this feels or that I need to personally apologize to Mikasa next time I see her for the times I thought she was exaggerating every month, without explaining.

But hey, now I figured out for once and for all which parent I look most like because there's no way Mom didn't just clone herself when she had me.

I'd always heard about how people charge more when they hear the word "wedding", but I always thought that they were exaggerating the whole thing. I mean, I worked at my Mom's bakery through high school, and I work at one here. But I always felt that it was a fair price for what it was. And... honestly, Mom's going to make our cake, so we don't even have to worry about that part at all.

But we'd decided that our dog was going to be our ring bearer, and we'd been looking for a little dress for her to wear down the aisle, maybe that we could attach the rings to. And the quotes for it are more than our tuxedo rentals are going to be. Now, I know it's not for material because it's not like Zelda's a great dane. She's a pug. A tiny lapdog. One of our rabbits is bigger than she is.

And if I search for dresses at regular pet stores? They're not much more than her little hoodies and doggy sweaters are. And honestly, they don't look all that much different to me.

But somehow it just feels weirder to be someone buying his dog a random dress than a dress for a wedding. Like, who honestly puts their dog in formal wear just because?

I’ll admit it - I was a passive aggressive little shit to my coworker today. I’ve been working with her for over a year, almost daily, and she refuses to call me by the right name no matter how many times she gets corrected. And today I just...reached my limit. I’ve corrected her. Our coworkers have corrected her. Our manager has made a point to point out my nametag to her when correcting her. So today...I just didn’t answer her when she started calling for Aaron. I didn’t acknowledge it. I just kept right on with my stocking even after she started shouting it. She finally stopped and angrily asked one of the other guys why I wasn’t answering her and she seemed utterly floored when he responded “Because his name isn’t Aaron.”

I know it was petty but I’m tired of her not listening when she’s told my name. And I’m tired of humoring her and letting her call me whatever she wants. Being old doesn’t make it okay to be rude or just do whatever you want.

I knew that deciding to take a break to watch the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street was going to be a little weird for me with everything that happens out here - it feels like we live in a horror movie at times out here already. But it's fun to get scared sometimes right? So I settled in with the popcorn and my remote to watch it on Netflix, and within the first ten minutes realized that one of the actors looks a hell of a lot like one of my best friends. And that people are still as dumb as they were in the first one. Freddy Kreuger gets you through your dreams - how is hiding in a closet from him going to keep you alive?

I'm so fucking bored. It's not even like I've gotten to spend extra time with Roman, because his company has been just as busy as the hospitals. I'm so fucking bored that today I actually used Uber Eats to get a dozen macarons and ate them by the pool while wearing my crown. I have 0 regrets.

Well the wardrobe from my dreams that just showed up in one of my guest rooms is going to come in handy the next few months. My biodad is getting some honors for his career and humanitarian efforts, and he wants me to go with him to the ceremonies and dinners here in California. So all those dresses that have just been hanging in there are going to get some use. Now to just figure out what to do with my hair and makeup for them. No. No. I'm not at all using this to distract myself from the fact that I haven't found someone to oversee my internship yet

The worst part of Eren's internship? The late nights he has with both that and the bakery leads to me not being able to sleep well sometimes. Which leads to me going on the pokemon center website to take a look at the new plushes because it never hurts to look right?

Until it leads me to discover the real reason why Team Rocket is always trying to capture Pikachu - they're trying to stop him from killing and skinning any more of his fellow Pokemon to wear them as capes.

This morning I couldn't find my keys. I looked absolutely everywhere I thought I might have left them, even checked the door in case my dumbass left them in the lock. I had to drop Armin off at school before getting to my internship, so ten minutes after we usually would have left, we finally decided that I was driving his car today. Otherwise there was absolutely no way that we could have made it, and we just figured we'd look for the keys tonight when we got home from work.

We tore the apartment up looking for them and still couldn't find them. I remembered we went grocery shopping yesterday and wondered if maybe I accidently threw them away when I went to take out the stuff we cleaned out of the fridge. Since we couldn't find them anywhere else, I ...went dumpster diving. Hoping that we didn't have a pickup today.

No, I didn't find them out in the dumpster. While I was out there, my fiance remembered we hadn't checked the laundry yet. And somehow they were buried at the very bottom of our hamper. Now, there are six culprits that could have put them there, but the bunnies and the pug can't reach where I usually put my keys.

Which leaves Pan as the reason I don't think I will ever get the smell of old takeout out of my shoes.

This video game is really starting to piss me off. I shot that creature in the face when it was practically on top of me, but it did barely any damage? But I hit it with a 2x4 that was laying around in the game and it took half it’s health? What kind of sense does that make?

I think I actually might have killed some brain cells with the research for my paper. The professor assigned us all a case that we were supposed to research the criminal justice aspects of and if the party was acquitted we were supposed to research what they have been doing with their lives since the trial. And no, I was not given OJ Simpson although he does come up in mine. I got Casey Anthony who got charged with murdering her daughter Caylee. The entire thing was insane with what happened before she was brought to trial, but where I really got sucked down the rabbit hole was with what happened after her acquittal. For people who don’t know the story I’ll try and give a brief rundown of what went down - before they realized Caylee was dead her mom claimed that she was with the nanny so the police spent a lot of time tracking down the woman only to find out when they did that she wasn’t the nanny. In fact she’d never even met Casey Anthony or anybody else in the family so they start treating this like a kidnapping case with a stranger as the culprit.

Which is how an organization that runs searches for missing children gets involved with their resources and coordinating massive land, sea, and air searches and the FBI is involved too but they can’t find this little girl. Not until one of the searchers finds a shallow grave behind the Anthony home and when they dig it up they find Caylee’s body and from there we get to the trial and everything getting even nuttier and brain cell killing levels of weird to me. After Casey gets acquitted she kind of disappears from the public eye for a while. Well, until she somehow hooks up with OJ Simpson - which I could not find any info on how they met - and they start talking with one of the cable channels about a reality show starring the two of them talking about life after being acquitted for murder.

That hasn’t gone anywhere so now, according to Newsweek anyway, she’s working on a movie titled “As I Was Told” which she promises will have ‘both legal and erotic content’ which...okay then. There were civil suits filed against her one by the alleged nanny because of all the hell this entire thing made of her life. And the other by the organization in an attempt to recoup some of the money spent on the search when she knew her daughter wasn’t missing.

I’m pretty sure I put a lot more information into my paper than the professor was looking for but he didn’t give us a maximum page number for the assignment. And I just couldn’t see leaving any of it out.

I might not have gotten the internship last semester, but I've got it this time! I'm really excited, there's so much I'm going to be able to learn actually working at the newspaper than I've been learning at classes. More hands on. I'm not sure how that's going to affect my schedule yet, I'll have to wait until my first day, so I can report that back to the job that actually pays me. Still, the bakery is willing to work around whatever schedule they give me.

I like this gift a lot more than the last one from the Dreams - I woke up to my grandfather’s geography book laying on my nightstand. It was the book that kicked off the desire to see the ocean that Eren and I have in the Dreams. I’ve spent most of the day looking through it and it’s weird how similar and different all at once the geography of our world is from the world I dream about.

So, got my first ever write up at work.

I don't know if all bakeries are the same, but for ours? Large orders require an ID. That way if anyone wants to change it, we can match it and make sure it's our actual customer trying to change it. Apparently there have been issues in the past. So that is just our policy. No ID, we can't change it. That is just how it is

The Karen I dealt with today didn't like that I wouldn't take her word that she was the bride and wouldn't entirely change the size, flavor, and style of a wedding cake for her without trusting she was who she said she was. She kept saying she didn't have her ID on her. It was in her other purse. She didn't drive here so she didn't need it. That I was invading her privacy and this was awful customer service.

Finally she told me to bite her ass. I informed her I didn't have my rabies shots yet and I was sure she tasted awful anyway. So she complained to the manager.

...Does a write up still count if the person giving it is trying not to crack up at the same time?

I didn't make it into the internship program over the summer, so I've been working extra hard so that I can get into it next semester. Journalism is just an incredibly competitive field, so the only thing that I can do is just to keep trying harder. This is all I've wanted since ninth grade. And I'm up against so many other people that also have wanted this since whatever grade.

I've always been able to stubborn my way through whatever problems, though.

In less stressful news, I have a giant rabbit and a pug both trying to occupy the same space in my lap at the same time, and there's something very relaxing about being this loved.

Winie is settling in really well here. After a few nights of sleeping in different rooms throughout the house I think she's decided on the room across from mine as hers. I'll just have to move some of the furniture out of there to storage for her.

I think I'm going to have to skip coming by the club tonight. I'm just not feeling like myself. My emotions are just all over the place and I think I'm starting to turn. I had to give my maid the rest of the week off because all I could think about was what her blood would taste like so I think this is the only solution that will keep me from not losing control.

[Enzo]
You should come hang out with Winie and I the next time you have a day off. Not tonight but soon.

What in the actual hell? Seriously? Someone tell me that there’s some weirdass tradition in California of pranking waitresses by accusing them of trying to hit on your boyfriend by asking what he’s ordering. Because if not? This girl I waited on today needs a serious reevaluation of her relationship. And possibly her sanity because she went OFF on me for asking what he wanted to order. I had a moment where I thought she was actually going to physically attack me with her coffee mug and no thank you. I don’t care if it has been sitting in front of you long enough that it’s not scalding anymore. I don’t want your coffee all over me.

Also if you are that damn concerned about your boyfriend cheating that you think he might hook up in the back of a diner with a waitress at noon? First - fuck you for thinking so little of someone you’ve never even met before. Second - why are you going to keep seeing someone you CLEARLY don’t trust? Have some damn self respect and ditch him. Or quit attacking waitresses and calling them sluts when they ask “And for you sir?” Because A)They’re just doing their JOB and B) no one wants spit in their food. I wouldn’t do that but I know some servers who would.

I guess Mom's been deep cleaning where we keep the holiday things, because I just got a package full of some of my old Halloween costumes, minus I guess the more special ones, and the things I made in school. Which means I'm finally old enough, I guess, that their junk has become my junk. Am I supposed to hold on to this? Dispose of it to save Mom and Dad the guilt of doing it themselves? Call my sister and ask if she, also, received her own box of junk, and discuss what to do with it? Do I expect more of this in the future? No one told me about this part of adulthood. I live in an apartment, we don't have room for more of this.

Why is it so hard for people not to be creeps. You don't need to stare at someone as you drive by and then have to turn your attention back to the road, only to pull into a parking lot they're going by and just STAY there and seem to wait around and watch for what direction they're going and then pull out when it seems you've figured it out and show up where they're heading.

It's just..ugh.

Armin and I are pretty good about sharing and rotating chores. And tonight was my turn to make dinner. Since we both had classes and work, I figured the slow cooker was probably the best idea. And I came home when I had a break between classes to get everything ready. Had just enough time to prepare all of it plus fix myself a sandwich before heading back to campus. But...

I forgot to actually plug it in.

I just got off the phone with the delivery place while my fiance's still laughing his ass off in the background.

I swear that the most annoying thing about google is how it remembers everything you ever searched, and you keep getting ads on facebook related to things you looked up for school months ago. I mean it's not as creepy as when it gives me things I've been talking about and haven't searched for at all, but it's still very annoying.

I had wondered why a lot of you seemed to be so invested in your dreams, but I think I've figured it out. I'm generally pretty good at remembering my dreams, but this one felt more like a memory than anything else. It wasn't anything special, just a conversation with my mother which I'm sure I must have had here when I was a kid too, except we were living in Roswell, New Mexico (yes, that Roswell).

It was actually really nice. I miss having conversations like that with her.

I'm glad we got to take a vacation before we had to go back to classes, and I'm really glad Armin's grandad loaned us the money. He insisted it was a gift, but I'd feel really bad about not paying him back. He already does so much for us... And I'm glad V petsat for us while we were on the other side of the country. Although from some of the pictures she texted us? I'm pretty sure we owe her new houseplants. And a phone charger. I should have warned you about Mopsy...

Man, this chick who ran my bar while I was in prison handled it all so well I think I might retire from the business and just sell her the place.

And yeah, I did just say prison. Behold, the infamous dunkin donuts truck stealer. I did that shit while I was still in a wheelchair. You guys have to at least semi respect those skills, right?

Hey Pidge, I promise I don't steal anymore so please don't ban me from yours.

I can't believe that there is seriously a meme about everyone just up and storming Area 51. I mean, you're right, they can't stop all of us. I agree. If there is actually a big enough turn out, it would be really hard to stop us all. I mean, quite a few people are going to get killed doing that, and do you really want to be the idiot that dies for a meme?

Now if you really wanted to take that sentiment of "they can't stop all of us"... maybe turn it towards something that would actually be worth it. Maybe towards protesting the actual child concentration camps? Take that energy and put it towards something that actually fucking matters.

I have a special treat for you this Saturday. You will not want to miss it. An auction will be held at Lux at midnight to win a date with yours truly. One night only. Dinner and a show…the definition of a show could be I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. So save your pennies, darlings. Bidding begins at midnight and ends when the gavel falls. And oh yes, the proceeds will go to a charity of your choice.

I am so mad right now. There's a girl back home that, on Mikasa's and mine recommendations, took over a lot of our duties at Mom's bakery when we left for college. We trained her, she always seemed like she was doing really well and customers loved her. We really thought she would help fill the gap both of us leaving at once left Mom with.

So she's going to college soon herself, and when she put her two week notice in? Her personality did a complete 180. She apparently found out that places can't fire you after you put a notice in, because it's considered retaliation. And she decided to use that to be rude to customers and employees and just sit around on the clock without doing much of anything. She even started on personal insults to one of the women that's worked with Mom for ages, and when she refused to respond to those? She pulled up facebook and started in on her children. What the fuck is wrong with her?

I know it's been years since I recommended her but... I still feel really, really guilty. Mom went ahead and stayed for the closing shift her last day to make sure she took her key from her, and she's having all the locks changed now, just to be safe. If she was like this before her last day, who knows what she's going to do after, you know?

I really fucking hate some of the adults in my Dreams. Just because they don’t understand how Eren was able to come back from the Titan, how he was eaten and then we pulled him out of a completely different Titan whole - arm and leg that he’d lost replaced, even - the military wants to execute him. And Mikasa and I along with him because we’re trying to defend him. Just as they’re about to fire, Eren transforms himself into part of a Titan and protects us inside his ribcage from the cannonballs. I hope Pan will forgive me for accidentally throwing him off the bed when I woke up at that sound.

I Dreamt about that Titan again last night - the one that was fighting the others - only this time my Dreamself figured out a way we could use his aberration to our advantage. Everybody was blocked in at HQ so Conny, Mikasa and I lured the strange Titan there, and he started kicking the ass of the Titans that were attacking it while we went inside and assessed the situation there as best we could. I didn’t see him go down but he was only instead of disappearing the way they always do it kind of...crumpled I guess? And as it did, I saw Eren there in it’s neck. Just kind of unconscious, like he’d worked himself to exhaustion somehow. We got him out of there and he’s...whole. The arm he lost grew back. I don’t know what’s going on there, none of it makes sense but...he’s back in my Dreams. And he’s here with me. So that’s good right? Even if I don’t understand how?

I guess we're going to have to get a bigger hutch sooner than we had planned on. And from now on, if the pet supply store is having an adoption fair, I'm going for whatever we need, or at least not sending Armin on his own. Not that I can really blame him, they do have the saddest looking eyes. But ...still.

Anyway, meet Mopsy. And yes, this is how he tried to sneak her in.

So when I mentioned to Granddad that Eren and I were getting to replace one of our living room chairs I wasn't trying to get him to buy us one, although it was a really nice surprise to come home to a new chair today after work. And I really can't be at all mad at Granddad picking it out without discussing it with us when what he picked is this. Pan, Flopsy and I spent our time cuddling on it while Eren made dinner.

Well I guess it's nice to know that even in the Dreams, my dad had the same reaction to me getting a job as a journalist. "Oh God" and needing a drink. And that no matter where you are, there will always be that person who is meant to mentor you that wants absolutely nothing to do with it. In a world of people with abilities, it's nice to have that normal. Or something.

I'm not sure when being in sales and being responsible for the word of mouth market came into play but here we are.

I'm Nebula, I work at No Rest For Bridget in Newport Beach (although we're in Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa too) and I've been newly tasked with our online and social media brand and this was one of the recommendations. T_T KMN.

And to make this less of an ad and more relatable, what are some of your customer service nightmares?

Who wants to go with me to Vegas this weekend?

New Work asked me to start early by going to the Tribology and Aerospace Applications convention. I got an extra ticket. You get to learn about the amazing advances in aeronautical lubricants, applications, and see on site demonstrations.

Lubricants. Lubricants. Lubricants.

Since I haven't heard of any weird Orange County fuckery happening today... I'm going to guess the reason I came home from work to the entire apartment complex's mailboxes on the ground and the wood all broken has absolutely nothing to do with the weather and absolutely everything to do with them being original to the buildings?

And some of our neighbors think I'm spoiled and entitled because Father pays the rent and my bills while I go to school. At least I don't think that I have some kind of claim on laundry room usage for our building and that I'm doing everyone a huge favor by allowing them to use the machines like the guy I ran into down there this afternoon when I was starting a load. One machine already in use so I'm loading the other one when this guy comes in and starts giving me a bunch of shit about how he guesses he'll just have to be okay with waiting to use the machine while I'm still loading the one I'm using. All the whole he's coming closer and trying to peek into the machine to see how much I'm putting in there, like he's going to ask if he could dump some of his own things in there or convince me to let him go first or something.

I looked at him and told him yeah he was going to have to wait. Because I got down there first and was already loading the machine. And actually I think I was being pretty nice about the whole thing, for me at least, by not telling him to just fuck off. But when he got pissed and started talking about how he's always having to wait for the machines because other people are always using them. Which it's a community laundry room - what do you expect? Them to clear it with you before doing their laundry? Get over yourself. I've met actors on Father's film sets that were less full of themselves than this guy.

Which he didn't seem to enjoy me telling him. Or my telling him that if he feels that strongly about not wanting to wait for a machine to be available to buy a house with it's own laundry room or get a washer/dryer installed in his apartment. The complex we live in them has them. You can get one put in and your rent will go up each month by like 50 bucks. I looked into it a couple months ago. I spend less than that each month going down to the laundry room and using the machines.

Honestly - I'm surprised that Zelda didn't bring one of the Porgs home with her from the park while they were here. But it's probably for the best because I'm pretty sure we aren't allowed any more pets in our apartment and I don't even know what we'd feed a Porg if we had one.

So twitter finally made an algorithm to keep nazi propaganda off of their site and ban people that post it. ...but they are refusing to implement it because it would deplatform too many politicians. I don’t know, to me that sounds exactly like the kind of people that should be deplatformed.

At the same time, it looks like Verizon is selling Tumblr, because traffic went down 33.3 percent after they decided to ban nsfw artwork and make LGBTQ issues impossible to search for. It's almost like doing both those in a mostly fannish and LGBTQ space was a bad idea. Who possibly could have seen that coming?

How did the people in charge of both these sites even get hired?

I don’t know what Eren was thinking when he handed me the necklace to put my ring on a few months ago. He should have known that I wasn’t ever giving him back that key. It’s caused so many questions in our dreams and with it showing up here? He’s not getting it back. If he ever finds the door it fits I want to be there when he goes in.

I had another weird dream about being fighting people naked. Who are also naked. Which is something that the psychology department would have a field day with, I’m sure. But then ...the dream shifted. I was losing this weird nude kickboxing tournament and collapsed. And then all of a sudden Armin and Mikasa are there, holding me to their chests and crying with Armin holding my hand, our fingers intertwined. I’m back in the Dream world, but that isn’t possible? I died in them. Got eaten by one of the titans. I really don’t understand how I’m dreaming about it now.

When I woke up, my 3dmg, the gear we swing from buildings and trees with as well as fight the titans with, was at the foot of the bed.

I really don't understand what's going on. Can you ...undie in the Dreams?

George seemed a little down so we took her to the vet. They said she was fine. But she’s not. She’s not acting like herself. So I started doing some research online, and everything was pointing towards she needed more socialization. Now Eren and I play with her all the time. Her and Flopsy both actually. And they play together in and outside of their hutch so I didn’t really understand how that could be the case. Until I came across this article about an organization in Seattle that organizes what are basically bunny play dates for bunnies and their owners so that the bunns can play and get to know one another. Anybody know of anything like that out here? Or anybody who’d be interested in starting something like that here?

On one hand, thank you and no thank you to Tumblr for their April Fool's joke this year for reminding me of my middle school posts with the memories feature. On one hand, it was cool to see posts I hadn't seen for years in fandoms and interests I haven't thought about forever. On the other hand... 14 year old me. That's all I can say about that.

I did kind of like it, but I hate that it was for a joke and won't stick around. Much like the one they did a few years ago that had spreadsheets people turned into art or memes and things. They come out with some really cool things for their April Fools day pranks that would be wanted and useful, and the rest of the year they decide to ban nipples and make LGBTQ tags unsearchable.

I swear, next year their prank will be to make a functional website for a day.
