I just gotta say, if you're stupid enough to steal eggs from a velociraptor, you definitely deserve to die.

This post brought to you by the fact TNT is currently showing Jurassic Park III. Yes, the velociraptors are inaccurate, but you still don't go up against them like that.

So, I really don't want anything to do with my biological father and yet he's trying to insert himself into my life by stalking me periodically sending gifts. First it was a research ship for my wife. Today it was a puppy. I can't even be mad about the puppy because she's so cute. I mean, just look at her:

Well the adventures at Brakebills continue for me - I got put into the Physical Discipline with Bambi, which I was expecting but I wasn’t expecting the Cottage to be quite like that on the inside. Anyone know if buildings cross over from the Dreams to here? Because if the Cottage shows up - I know where I’ll be throwing parties for my clients from now on. Then the money for a venue I get to keep.

It’s not all fun and games there though - the class behind me and Margo’s disappeared. Not all of them but most of them. And no one knows what happened but oddly enough no one seems to be talking about it very much. But that could be because the ones who did come back seem pretty unresponsive. Moving around the campus like zombies.

John Jesus H. Christ on a motherfucking bike, this place is fucked. If I could stop switching places with the dude I share a dreamspace with, that'd be cool. It's awkward as shit. Think of the most awkward thing, tell me what it is, and I will tell you that switching places with someone randomly is even more awkward. Fucker didn't even switch with me to get me to the front of the line at the breakfast place for a damn Eggywich, I ended up in the back of the bar which, actually, tequila at 9:00 am sounds pretty good right now.

There's also this cultist named Andrei Ulmeyda and his fanatic followers ain't above killing each other to get all 12 action figures of him (which appeared this morning in my bedroom). Who the hell would kill someone for an action of figure of some fucker with a fro dressed like an astronaut? Nevermind that he literally exploded in front of me and his blood killed everyone in the vicinity.

At least I got a ring that shoots fire. Shit.

I spent way too long looking at puppy photos on the internet today, it started out as research but soon descended into me just wanting to look at the cuteness.

So here have one of the cutest ones I found :)

There's some weird kind of whiplash that goes along with shifting gears so extremely when it comes to dream settings. I mean, I go from Bed-Stu to ... Middle of Nowhere, Secret Base, SHIELD. Like... just three seconds to catch up would be good.

Also, can someone explain to me why I'm constantly having my mind screwed around with in these damn dreams?

I call bullshit!

You know, finding an abandoned carnival on Halloween is so cliche. But when crazy shit starts to happen... Like zombies of everyone you loved who dies start coming up out the ground, it's natural to get driven into a mental break down. Not to mention dream friends know who I really am. And sucks I can't do a fucking thing to help us because I don't have the power boosters.

But you know what really sucks.. What really killed me... Peter.... Seeing Peter as a fucking zombie, telling me. no calling me a monster. because deep down, he's right. I'm a monster. It's my fault he died... And I'll never forgive myself for that...

not in my dreams and not here for running Peter away.

in my dreams a pink haired evil child came from the sky and demanded I hand over something only my friends and I know about

now I find out evil pink haired child is my daughter from the future

FROM THE FUTURE

..I'm really mean to her before I knew she was my daughter, I feel horrible, but at the same time, I know I was just being emotional and terrified that all my friends were being kidnapped and it seemed like she brought the danger

Turns out I'm a queen in the future too

A QUEEN THAT'S RIGHT

I don't know what's worse, blowing a tire out or having a truck full of drunk men try to help. I'm sure their hearts were in the right place but I could do it in the time it takes them to stumble out of their vehicle.

As much as I adore performing, it really would be nice if I could just watch a show I've done from the audience instead of managing to always end up at the performance where I am needed to fill in at the very last minute. Just once.

Yet the show must go on.

I'm becoming convinced my dreams are just a who's who of the latter 19th Century. I'd already met a young Alexander Graham Bell in the early stages of developing what would become the telephone, and bumped into Charles Dickens. Now I've met Florence Nightingale, who helped saved some friends of mine from an illness. I've also met a very young Arthur Conan Doyle. Most children his age would be playing with their friends. But he helps me solve murders. Guess that explains his writings later in life.

Though I'm getting closer to the Piece of Eden that's hidden somewhere in London. I found clues in the Kenway House that are leading me somewhere. I'm not completely certain where yet. I need to study them more first. Though it would be great if my brother stopped following me about and being annoying. Sometimes I really don't think he takes our mission seriously. Actually, no, more like most of the time I think that.

And on a non-dream front, there's not enough bloody tea in the world to help me deal with my day job. Which tends to turn into an anytime of day job. I may fall asleep at my desk.

OMG you guys. After a conversation I had not too long ago on the network, I decided to start looking into open casting calls. And I had my sister help me find ones that were legit, you know? Not some creepy dude in a basement trying to make amateur porn. Anyway, I found a job! I'm going to be in a music video! XD I don't know all of the details yet, but I'm SO EXCITED!

Goooooooooooooooooosh some people are soooooo rude.

Someone actually cut my hair on the bus. There's a section missing at the back. I'm super bummed out.

They're so lucky it wasn't a lot or I'd need to hunt them down and have a stern talking to them. Now I need to get a few inches off my hair.

I'd like a summer free of near death experiences, please. Just sweaty bodies, fireworks, lemonade, all the typical shit.

Maybe toward the end of the month I'll plan a big picnic. On a table, not a blanket. I have visions of cartoon ants marching away with my food.

I cheated on my workplace and went to Starbucks today. I had to! I had to try this magical creation they're calling the unicorn frappucino. It was beautiful and tart and a little weird, but I liked it. Once I'd slurped that up, it was back to Alice's Tea Cup where, by the way, our tea and coffee is the best even if we don't have clever, color-changing frozen drinks.

So far nothing new with my (former?) admirer. I haven't seen him around. It's been kind of a relief.

I was out tonight, getting dinner on my way home from class and there was a group of teenagers there and I don't know what exactly they were talking about, but all of a sudden I overhear one of the guys say, If Satan himself grabbed me by the balls, I'd say awesome.


Um, I'm not really sure that would be an awesome thing to have happen.

I guess the Trump supporter must have had deep pockets or some kind of influence. Today all of the gym employees got a big speech about keeping politics out of the workplace to ensure that the gym patrons feel comfortable in the gym. My boss kept me after the speech to stress to me how important it was that I not make any more Trump jokes. I did tell him that it was one joke and he was understanding, but he still told me he wanted his gym to stay as neutral as Switzerland.

This is crazy.

I never went to any dances when I was in high school. So to go to a formal in my dreams with this Stiles kid was kind of nice, even though dream me seems to be a bitch at times. I hope that changes. Still everything seemed fine until I went looking for asshole Jackson.

Getting attacked isn't fun. but waking up in extreme pain isn't fun either. Seems the attack mark i got in my dreams, i woke up to having in reality.

Has that happened to anyone before?

My boss at the gym let me know, laughing all the while, that a woman asked him if there was another spinning instructor she could try because she didn't like my politics. I cracked one Donald Trump joke and the woman decided I'm some liberal heathen. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am liberal, but I try to keep that out of my work. It was just that he was on one of the televisions and I couldn't resist making a remark.

And for the record, no, there is no other spinning instructor, so you're out of luck, lady.

I still don’t understand how the angry yam in the white house is so convinced that everyone protesting against him, his policies, and Republicans in general are all being paid to. I mean, I haven’t seen a single check so far, but if someone wants to pay me for what I’ve been doing for free… No, I’m pretty sure there’s no better motivation than a lot of people being very, very angry and scared.

And in the meantime, our whole lecture today in class was over actual fake news being held as the truth by those in charge, while the actual news is being dismissed as fake. And how well that’s gone through history.

I had a Serendipity moment that ended horribly different from the movie. A woman and I both grabbed for the same pair of leather gloves at the same time. We smiled awkwardly, each of us thinking that the other would let go, but both held onto our respective gloves. I finally said "I think I grabbed this one first." and she scoffed and said "I don't think so."

Then I said "Oh, damn, there's a scratch in the leather on this one." leaning in to take a closer look. She let go of hers to take a look at mine. I grabbed them both and triumphantly headed to check-out. I think I made an enemy, but someone is getting a nice pair of gloves from me for Christmas!
