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 haven't had any more dreams for a bit now. I don't know if I want life as a POW, but I kind of miss them.

Is it weird to miss the dreams?

Talk about a blast from childhood. Netflix just released a new series called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance today. It's a prequel to Jim Henson's movie The Dark Crystal. I've watched a couple episodes so far, and it's actually pretty good. A little odd getting used to the blend of puppetry and CGI, but it does justice to the original movie while expanding on the lore of it.

Also no judging, I loved that movie when I was a kid, so of course I'm going to watch this.

Back in August of 2017, astronomers detected two neutron stars colliding, which created gold and platinum and sent those materials flying into space. It's the first time this sort of collision has been recorded, and it's absolutely fascinating. And not a place you'd want to be anywhere near when the collision is happening.

Well today is the day I turn the big 5-0. Can't believe it. Where the hell does time go? Seems like yesterday I was knee high to a grasshopper in Alabama.

Also can't believe the three chuckleheads I might as well call sons managed to pull off some of the craziest shit I've seen for a 50th:

[There's a picture of a ramp leading to the front door with birthday decorations on it and an electric scooter for old people at the base full of old home pamphlets, also decked out.]

That was not there yesterday.

I hate you sons of bitches 😂

For those that enjoy stargazing, this month is going to provide a spectacular view of Jupiter and its largest moons. There's no need for a high powered telescope either, you can easily see them with just a pair of binoculars. It's a beautiful sight to behold

Dreams seem to be a common conversational topic on this network. You've all seemed to have been drawn together. It's interesting to witness.

I never remember my dreams. I haven't since I was very little. So perhaps I'll live vicariously through you all.

For anyone who's curious about how to photograph the Milky Way, a photographer laid out how to do so. If I had a larger home with more wall space, I would most certainly have a photograph of the Milky Way hanging on it. Along with other images that the Hubble Space Telescope has taken.

No. Absolutely not. I refuse to spend anymore time than absolutely necessary with the Rock of Ages choreographer. I signed on to play Sherrie in the show not to have someone trying to grope me while "correcting my position for the move." I get that it's easier to do it by moving me physically but if my hips aren't right - there is absolutely no reason for your hands to be on my boobs. And there is never a reason for you to be practically cupping them.

And now I'm supposed to agree to "private sessions" to get the number that Sherrie does at the club perfect? No that's not happening. In fact if I can find a way to - I'll find someone else to help me get more relaxed and less wooden when dancing on a pole. And if I can't find anyone else? I'll bribe someone to come to the sessions with me if I have to. Even if they're just going to be sitting off to the side watching.

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.

My biggest issue with Mother's Day, and Father's Day while I'm thinking about it, is that people want to use it to pretend that even the most hellish parents are some type of saint and they get offended when you don't want to play along with their delusion about your parents. You had amazing parents? Great. Lucky you. I'm happy for you honestly. And maybe a little jealous My parents? My mother threw me out of the house the day I turned 18 because my father told her she either threw me out or he'd throw both of us out and fire her from his company after freezing all of her assets. So don't expect me to get all warm and loving about them just because society has decided to give them some damn holidays.

my husband and I are planning our wedding reception while getting coffee this morning. We both decided to have a massive party for our friends and family.

All I can hear are the people outside yelling about dooms day. while I was on the phone with bakery. I handed the phone to my husband and went outside to yell at the group to move on, we all heard them, repeatedly.

In case you haven't heard, Dooms Day is upon us, blah, blah, blah!

I couldn't be more happy to finally see the arrival of my new ship. Balls, but it took forever to get it retrofitted, paid for, and over here. And I was really quite annoyed I was too busy to skipper it here myself.

But, it's all worth it now. Because this beauty's going to be a fantastic new party destination for you all, I'm sure! We're definitely going to have to have some kind of gigantic party to break her in, don't you all think?

Anyway, without further ado, I give you: The Miranda

Well it’s official - I just signed my first endorsement deal last night. The company’s hoping to translate some of my recent publicity to a new market. Whatever that means. All I know is that I have to go to their events and talk up their sports equipment. Easy enough since they’re what I’ve been using to train at home since I was 15 anyway.

Six missed calls, all from the same number. And I have no idea what number it is, I sure as hell am not picking that up. Finally check my messages and it's a divorce attorney??

Do these people even know who I am? Apparently not, or they'd know better.

Divorce Attorney. Balls. The last thing I made a lifelong commitment to went up in flames. No, thank you.

People can say whatever they like about China - but they know what people want. They built a 250 acre solar farm, which is pretty cool on it’s own because that’s a lot of solar energy instead of fossil fuels. But they went one step further according to the article I read - they built it in the shape of a giant panda. And everyone loves pandas. It’s a fact. And not only did they build one - they have plans to build two more massive solar farms that are shaped like pandas.

Since I couldn't have an over the top party on my actual birthday last month due to unexpected company over that week - I'm going to have a late party for it this weekend at my house. Show up any time starting after 5 pm Friday and stay for as long as you want. Or until I have to throw everyone out Monday to get ready for a meeting with a director at my house. They better be offering me the part or I will end up in trouble that I'm fairly certain an entire law firm and Amycus couldn't get me out of and cover up

A few warnings about the Scourge.

They can't be reasoned with. They also cannot turn you into one of them unless you're exposed to the plague, which typically must be ingested. So don't eat any suspicious looking grains.

The typical ghouls are much faster than zombies you see in movies, and watch out for geists, who like to climb walls and attack from above.

I'm more concerned about the giants, abominations and frost wyrms, personally.

They're being led by a man called the Lich King. He's incredibly powerful and dangerous, so if you see a man in blue armor with a glowing blue sword, run.

You risk your very soul if you stick around.

Alright - Fangtasia regulars might already have gotten wind of it but Eric decided to head back to Louisiana to oversee the idiots club there after hearing what was going on there so if you come down you won't see him sorry ladies. But you'll get to see me not stuck behind the bar all night since he made me one of the managers - my sleep schedules already used to working nights and sleeping days so try not to give me any headaches while I'm getting a hang of everything alright?

And anybody looking for a job that has bartending skills - we're looking for a new one.

You know, when I was told the sun would do me good, I didn't really take it terribly seriously. But I must admit, I could get used to this.

Of course, there do need to be a few concessions. Can anyone direct me to some bars/clubs/restaurants that are particularly appealing? Have to make sure the social life doesn't suffer in the move, of course.

So I was having to do some research on my home state of Washington for a class, and came across a little tidbit: the states lack of a bestiality law for about 30 years. Apparently they took it off the books in the 70s to update it and then nobody noticed it never got put back in. Fast forward to the 2000s and a dude is dropped off anonymously at a local Emergency Room with internal injuries - including a perforated colon - that nobody can figure out how he sustained them until they manage to review the footage and identify the car that dropped them off. Great. Mystery solved. Unfortunately.

Police found out that the injuries were a result of the guy having sexual intercourse with a horse - and I’m not going into details about that but think about the injuries and you can figure it out - while his friends video taped it. So the dude who got hurt died and the police are going to charge the friends with bestiality on top of the other shit with just abandoning them which is when it was discovered that due to the oversight in the 70s - they technically hadn’t broken any law while having sex with the horses.

My home state rivals Orange County for weirdness in some respects I think.

I generally don’t say anything about politics because for the most part it’s incredibly boring and why do I want to do anything that I know is just going to bore me? But this government shutdown is something that I just can’t keep quiet about. Because honestly - how do you not comment on an overgrown toddler who’s temper tantrum is affecting an entire country?

Considering what I just Dreamt of and then went through the past couple weeks, this story about gene-editing doesn't sit well with me. Mostly because I am a product of gene-editing in my Dreams. My father took his DNA, then picked and chose what he wanted. He was a genius and one could say I was tailor-made for perfection.

I'm definitely not perfect, I am still human, but because of what he did, I can live for a very long time. Among other things. Normally I'm not entirely against gene-editing, I've just seen the extremely bad side of this both in my Dreams and here. But it has to start somewhere, and the conversation needs to be started, right?

I'm not sorry my father is dead. The bastard deserved what he got

I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week. I also feel like this year has gone on FOR-EVER. I remember back on things and go oh wait, that was just this year. I've got so much to get ready so I can go back up to Oregon to see my parents. I really wish they would just come down here, but apparently not this year - my sister just had a baby and still lives up there, so I get to be the one to travel. Joy.

I've also had so many dreams this weekend and it's all just confusing and frustrating. It's still continuing to play just like you would expect it to go when you shove two attractive people together and tell them love is forbidden. I can't help but roll my eyes - future space people are not smart sometimes.

Oh fucking hell, whatever's going on needs to fucking stop. I suddenly know what it must feel like to have an L2 implant. I've had a steady headache that's now turned into a migraine, or something worse. It's hard to tell. All I know is that it hurts. I think I'll be wearing noise-cancelling headphones for the duration of however long this happens.

Or maybe I'll just perform brain surgery on myself and take this fucking implant out of my head.


[Private to Isabela]

Given the fact your phone is possessed and I can't handle noise, I'll be keeping those noise-cancelling headphones on. If you need to talk to me or something, throw a paper ball at me? Or something else gentle to get my attention. Hopefully this won't last long otherwise I'm going to have to kill myself.

Yes, that was my Yacht.
No, it isn't repairable.
Yes, I am still alive.
By some miracle my cell is still working despite being dumped into the bay.

I had insurance. It's all sorted. Thank you.

But it also reminds me of how fake everyone is, and how much it sucks to have to be fake just to fit in to that perfect picture frame everyone wants you to be in.

Edit: I mean it goes without saying but this thread isn't at all safe for work.

Well, those gigantic orc buggers found their way over to the docks and that was amusing. That wood wasn't made to handle big muscled men like that.

I watched them from my little speedboat and thought to myself 'well, we're fucked, might as well enjoy it!'

Actually pretty sad all my new playthings have either been killed or sent back wherever they came from. They were fun, and I won't be walking straight for at least a month.
