I think I shall get this early, so that I have enough time to prepare.

Much like last year, I shall produce a fireworks spectacular on the Fourth of July.

[Video of Fireworks, including massive exploding dragons]

I just need to secure a locale.

Oh my god. I've been so busy lately. The production schedule is all messed up because the cast and crew keeps bursting out in song during shooting. We're so behind it's ridiculous. I really wish someone would figure out what the heck is going on. I was supposed to spend St. Patty's Day weekend at home with my family and I couldn't because we were so behind. Ugggh!!!

When you consider what I do for a living, you'd think getting a date would be easy. Of course, people seem to think that damn Bachelor show is still interesting, so ... not really speaking to the public's smarts, I guess.

I'm getting old. Wanting to nest.

Today is a good day to stay home and not go outside at all, ever, I think. Not even for food, no matter how bad the munchies get.

Also, this sort of stuff can stop happening at any time, now.

I'm having a geode, crystal, and lodestone sale at my shop, the Magick Shoppe out in Tustin! Please, come by and visit me, I'm bored as can be. Nothing ever happens in Orange County, I swear. So beautiful, so tedious.

Production on Black Widow is finally starting back up again after that whole virus scare. I really missed working, but spending time at home with my family was really nice. It's kind of been an insane last couple of weeks, both the good and bad kind. I'm honestly just looking forward to getting back to some kind of normalcy in my life.

I am so tripping balls, right now. That's what the kids say, isn't it? Tripping balls?

I assure you, my balls are in fine order.

I even had them examined.

It looks like the shop won't open until February now. What are the rules about drinking at funerals? Good idea, or great idea?

I have to write something to say. I don't have any idea what to do about that.

To take things in a more interesting direction, so I'm not just whining about stuff on the Internet, who's dyed their hair crazy colors? I need a recommendation for a good dye that won't look weird after a few washes. I don't mind bleaching or frequent upkeep, but I don't want to ruin my hair, either.

There are many positive reasons to be in a small business for ones' self, but one of the negatives is a lack of affordable health insurance. My employees tried to get me to go to the hospital for stitches, but fortunately I'm a seamstress. Stitches are my specialty, and skin is sort of like leather, in a way.

Medical professionals - how many ibuprofen would you recommend for this? I only needed six stitches by my own count.

No, I did not disappear. I ran away for the weekend to Vegas with Bill. It was the perfect way to spend a weekend but that is not surprising, he is a complete dream. It was pretty amazing.

And no we did not spent our entire weekend in bed. Why do people automatically assume that when you say you went away with the person you are dating? Not that I would objected, why would I? Bill is amazing... He is gorgeous, good at everything he does, treats me right and he is mine.

We did get the entire Vegas experience in though; we got dressed up, went to the casinos, gambled some (I did not even lose all my money), and said why not and got married. You know all the things people assume you did when you said you went to Vegas.

Good afternoon, Valarnet! It's a beautiful day to go to the park and have a picnic, I think. Of course, I just think it's beautiful outside, so that makes it a good day for anything! What are you guys up to on Sunday? Are you being lazy like me or are you doin' stuff?

I've finally been convinced to start a web log. One of my Teacher's Aids suggested it, so long as I keep in mind that everything posted to the internet is public knowledge. Of course, it would be hard to forget such a thing, anyway. I would like to keep a log of my studies, and the things I have an interest in researching. It might help me to keep my thoughts better organized, and I can access it from any computer, unlike a paper diary.

Note to self; no class on Thursday.

On a side, and somewhat personal note, I must admit that watching old episodes of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" makes me feel a bit warm and fuzzy in a slightly uncomfortable way. Hopefully it's not distracting Ron from his nap on my sofa.

Second note to self; replenish the Rocky Road supply. I seem to have run out.

Fourth of July Spectactular


[info]gandalf
[info]valarnet
This Wednesday at 8pm my pyrotechnics company is putting together a wonderful show. I've had a large hand in designing and preparing this display, so I hope everyone likes it.

Admission is free and food and beverages are reasonably priced, but feel free to bring your own. However, note that alcoholic beverages will be prohibited.

And there will be dragons.

Park Address

((OOC: Event is closest to this one in design but I've handwaived the exact location a bit to allow maximum attendance for those interested..))

I kind of have some big news that I'm dying to tell everyone, but I'm legally bound not to say anything until it's announced in the news and stuff. Mom, Dad? Can we get dinner tonight? I think it's okay if I tell you two what's going on. So long as you don't tell the press.

[Pinkie]
Hey Pinkie,

I'm so sorry to do this to you, but I have to put in my two weeks notice. It's been a really great opportunity and I've had a lot of fun, so thank you. I can totally train someone new if you like too. Just let me know.

Cannot sleep. I'm nervous about this gig tomorrow, which is....... probably an appropriate reaction. But it still feels weird, to me.

I feel like there's something off with my set list.

Pot? Why, yes please!

Citizens (Residents?) of Valarnet:

You guys are awesome.

I don't do well being contained, you might have noticed, and between the cakes, puddings, pies, visits, stuffed animals, strippers and etc, I managed to only be bored roughly 70% of the day in Irvine General, and for that I owe you.

Friday, June 15th, I bought out the Diamond Club at Anaheim. If you don't like baseball, just come drink the beer, which is also free. There's also going to be a surprise after the game which I'm particularly excited about. Trust me, you'll have a good time.

Consider this my thank you for a job well done.

People have been having weird dreams a lot, I guess, and talking about weird dreams a lot, and all, and usually my dreams aren't very notable or I just don't really talk about them.

Except for the dreams after the tarot reading Loki did for me, those were like they were on speed, but still not very clear or sense-making.

This time, though, I think I get what you guys are talking about.

It was a very simple dream about a girl and her horse, except that girl was me and the horse had wings.

Which, whatever, but it was frighteningly real. Enough I could still feel feathers on my fingertips when I woke up. What is the internet slipping me?

In an attempt to remove the stick from my ass Hi I'm Dani and I'm stupidly socially awkward outside of alcohol This is stupid it's just a bbq you idiot FUCK IT

I have a gigantic backyard and like to make fajitas. I don't get Monday off (no way in hell they're letting a park ranger have Memorial Day off), but my shift ends pretty early if anyone wants to join me for grilled fajitas and beers.

I have a dog if that matters in one way or another. She's friendly though.

Send a PM or whatever if you want to come over and I'll give you the address. I don't imagine I'll get too many responses to this, but I'll probably cap this out at 10 people or so.

EDIT: Wow, you guys. Awesome turnout! I think that's about all the people I can handle, but this should be pretty fun! Or a complete disaster.

((ooc note: handwaving the PM's of addresses. You can all assume that those who wanted to attend got one with directions to Casa Dani))

And I thought living here was going to be boring. In the month or so since I've gotten settled in here it's mostly been things like shooing bored kids away from the woods with their spray paint cans, beer bottles, and lighters. I havn't even gotten to shoot a tranq dart at wildlife yet. I'm pretty annoyed about that.

Then this week happens and it's like every exciting thing that could have happened over the last month just got packed into a few days.

I met a guy named Gandalf who posts on 'this crazy net thing', so you can blame him for my presence here, by the way.

Anyway, can someone tell me where I can go to get extremely drunk in the presence of people so I don't have to drink alone?

Is there a Gandalf here? We met the other day. I believe I said you seemed familiar. I think I figured out why. We should talk. Fix this so the filter is private. I'm horrible with technology.

I heard this in my sleep last night. And I woke remembering every word of it.

Song of Nimrodel )

Lothlórien.
Is it possible to feel you must immediately to return to a place you've never been?

My dreams of Lothlórien have overwhelmed every other thought, every other desire. I sleep and see no shapes but those I already know, but the shapes seem at once clear cut, as if they had been first conceived and drawn at the covering of my eyes, and ancient as if they have endured for ever. Gold and white and blue and green--though as if I had at that moment first perceived them and made for them names new and wonderful. In winter here no heart could mourn for summer or for spring. No blemish or sickness or deformity could be seen in anything that grew upon the earth. On the land of Lórien, there is no stain...

How is this possible?
