Left the theater tonight with an entire list of movies my son wants me to take him to see. I did tell him that going on a school night probably wasn't going to happen again very often but we could definitely go to the movies again and just spend some time together.

My neighbour just got a dog.

It's a puppy. I'm sure it's the cutest thing on the planet but oh god does it yap. Every morning this week. At three in the morning. I work early enough as it is. Jeez.

I'm gonna lose my mind!

Why is it that flights are usually always delayed? I was hoping to get into the city a little bit sooner so that I could check out the place I will be utilizing for my store. I suppose there is no rush, and I was just feeling overly eager. Perhaps a night out on the town to commemorate my arrival!

Are there any fancy clubs around here? Perhaps places where the cheapest drink is at least $100? Yes, I have expensive tastes but once you have the best, why settle for anything else?

Oh, where did my manners go? I am Dorian Pavus, international model and entrepreneur. And yes...those modeling shots of myself in the nude are real.

Call me crazy, but I enjoy the preparation for a job interview. I like spending the time picking out my interview outfit; after all, first impressions are the ones that really matter, so I need to make sure I pick the right outfit. I'm contemplating buying something new for this interview though. New shoes for sure. A woman can never have too many pairs of shoes after all.

Oh and I'm Josephine Montilyet. Found this place while doing more research on the company I'm interviewing for.

I got stopped today by someone who heard me play Thursday to ask if I was the same guy who had that song on the radio or if I'd just been doing a cover. And then asked for my autograph after telling them I was the guy who had the song on the radio. Definitely a new experience for me that I could get used to but I guess I probably should have been expecting something like that with the song getting released and doing pretty good on the charts. Next up is album release I guess.

To my dear friends,

A few days ago, I was doing a normal day at the shop when a man came in. He told me his name, told me he liked my designs, and told me that he was from Derek Lam.

For those of you who don't know, Derek Lam is an incredibly successful designer who normally does men's fashions for all seasons. However, he is apparently starting to design a women's line. And he offered me the job of lead designer.

I swear, you could have knocked me over with a feather! Derek Lam!

It does, however, mean the crux of this post: I'll be moving. Not very far, but down toward San Diego. Out of the network.

Alice and I have discussed it, and she's agreed to go with me. I expect some of you to come to our wedding, whenever it may be - I haven't asked her yet, but she knows I will. It's not a surprise.

The shop will be open for another week, and I'll be finishing all the commissions I took on - that includes Ms. Thurman's, as well as some things I was doing for you, Verity, as gifts. Any further questions, just ring or ask me here.

It's been a joy and a pleasure living here. Please, stay in touch!
Jefferson and Grace Chapelier (& Alice Ayres)

Had a dream I was born in 1923. I must say, I look damn fine for my age.

Is this what you lot mean when you say dreams? Somethin' really ... I don't know, I dreamed about getting married and I woke up with tears on my face. I was so happy.

My family is coming to visit this weekend. They're going to be here tonight. Is this craziness over yet? I feel better than I did earlier this week. I even went and ventured out in the public and didn't break anything. So, hopefully that means this is just temporary.

WOOHOO!I survived my first week of college (I have just another class today) and I didn't even cry! I'm super excited that Monday is a holiday because I already have some homework for my classes and I want to be able to sleep in. I managed to get a decent schedule for Fridays and I should be wrapped up with classes by early afternoon. Which means I could get all my homework done early if I wanted to and just enjoy the weekend. We'll see how I keep up on that.

I want to celebrate. Not quite sure what to do yet, except for attending my last class. I'm sure that college parties around here are intimidating. And not really my scene, so anyone have any other suggestions?

What do you get a girl you rather fancy but aren't incredibly close to? I'd like the gift to say 'you're lovely, would you like to go on a date?' and less 'please love me creepy stalker alert'.

I'm also dreaming more as well. I dreamed I met the earliest buried man in England, so that was ... a bit weird.

I have to admit, I do enjoy America. Perhaps it's the....shall we say, diversity....present in the United States. The sane and the insane sit next to each other on the train, albeit the number of insane opinions I heard on the train means I won't be taking it again.

In other news, I was accosted by several youths today. They seemed to assume that my age made me an easy target. I wasn't.

Do you ever have someone come into your work and then really hope they come in again even though you know you work in a mall food court and that person just doesn't seem the type to frequent the mall at all ever?

That was distressingly specific, wasn't it?

Youth Orchestra/Symphony/Whatever We Are Right Now rehearsal tonight should be a decent enough distraction. I do so enjoy Vivaldi.

If anyone is curious this is what we're working on tonight and have been for the last both too long and not long enough.

Consider this a warning to my clientele: if you make any sort of disparaging comment about a lady due to her choice of vocation or her sexuality, I will not serve you. And I will advise my professional acquaintances not to serve you either.

Women are allowed to be sexual beings at appropriate times, just like men. None of my shopgirls work in the sex trade, but for the record, if they did or if they ever have, it would be no business of mine. I will not tolerate unreconstructed attitudes toward my staff or myself. Or the adopted mother of my child.

Do I make myself clear?

I'm already over looking for a house. I've been doing it for two days, and it's already pissing me off a lot. I guess the market has changed a lot since I bought my place.

I wonder if I could get a permit to add another story instead? It'll be a hell of a lot easier in the long run, I think. Get a decorator for the part we currently have, so it's more 'us' and less 'me'. Luckily we have similar taste in colors, so that won't be too bad.

Is it weird that I really look forward to having a custom master bathroom? Like, the second story idea appeals to me specifically because it means I can make an enormous bathroom with awesome shit like a fancy tub and two sinks and maybe some kind of self-sanitizing option? I don't know if that last one is a real thing.

Also, I know there's some clothing designers or other people who do stuff like that on here, is anyone willing and able to make custom stuff for a wedding? It's a steam punk themed thing, so no big poofy dresses or stuffy suits.

While waiting in the dental office, I was unfortunate enough to witness an episode of America's Next Top Model. It was on the television in the waiting room, and I found myself feeling a deep sense of despair. It was truly awful in every single way. I would call these women pieces of meat, but I think it's more apt to call them vegetables. Such shameless whores

Why are people so willing to throw away their sense of dignity?

I lost my first case today. Not my first loss ever, but my first loss since coming to America. Now, due to my failure, a boy is going to prison. 18 years, up for parole in 10. And a permanent black mark on my own, personal record. I dislike losing. I dislike it greatly.

Not as much as that boy will dislike prison life, but then he ought to have listened to my counsel more closely, especially when it comes to the stand. People rarely listen as well as they should. People are arrogant.

I've had horrible dreams recently. Dreams of myself as a boy, but in a setting that summoned both strangeness and nostalgia. Odd indeed. I was a child, and then a young man in charge of a place called the Dreadfort.

The Dreadfort....that's somewhat ominous, isn't it?

Oh, dear.

Grace and I were watching television today, and we came across a mixed martial arts fight. It was two men, rolling around and punching each other in the head, mostly on the ground. They wound up with one on top of one another.

My eleven-year old daughter looked at me and said "Papa, isn't this kind of homoerotic?"

My eleven year old daughter knows the word homoerotic. I'm inexplicably impressed and worried at the same time.

I mean. Congrats, and I get (sort of), where the cheer comes from? But literally every newspaper and news site and every other facebook post is, well. Royal baby based. I get it. The kid was born, he's a boy, everyone's happy.

I had a strange, scary moment today at the coffee shop. I sort of... blacked out. Kinda. I had this moment where I was in a different place or time, it was weird. Like I was dreaming, but I was awake? And I knew what was going to happen next. It was brief, and I think I may have been hallucinating, or something, but I could tell what the person in front of me was going to order. Right before it happened. She ordered a skinny vanilla latte and a blueberry scone. And I knew she was going to. I just... knew.

It's weird dreaming of that other world, and then remembering things that the other me did, as if they were my own memories. It feels... very... unreal, and yet... almost like they were just things I forgot. Sometimes, I feel like I should accept them, but sometimes... I get angry and I want to like... fight them. I just don't know how.

If I must turn thirty-two today, at least I did it in style - The Mirror is officially open for business! I saw a few of you come in and out of the store, and I hope very much that all of you find my stock to your liking.

In fact, I'm feeling generous; if you come into the shop and mention you're on the network (and I can prove it), I'll take 15% off anything you order.

It's true - I've put in my two weeks at the tea shop so I can help my boyfriend with his store. I wonder if he'll give me double the sexual harrasment speech?

But honestly, I can't complain. My daughter boyfriend's daughter is doing great in school, the house is lovely, and I'm looking forward to working with Jefferson.

I wanted to give the Valar people first crack at this announcement, since it was on the Valarnet that I got my big break. Alice, I'm sorry for not telling you beforehand, but I literally just got the title and the okay to proceed with the transfer of capital.

Mrs. Tesla has decided to close Fayth, in Mission Viejo, as she and her husband are headed for other pastures. She's sold me the space and the business capital, and with her blessing, I've decided to reopen under a new name. Fayth was Lulu's brainchild, and I would prefer for her brand to stand alone, unhindered by any missteps I might make.

So, as of this morning, though the signage will need some time to be changed? Fayth will reopen as The Mirror. We'll continue to sell ladies' clothes, but we will also focus on the men's line that Lulu and I had been developing. I'm excited, frightened and will soon be hiring for floor and behind the scenes positions.

To all those who Dream:

Have any of you managed to work out if your dreams are truly you, or if the protagonist of your dreams is merely a figment of your memories, or imagination?

I had one where I harmed a child. Accidentally, but nonetheless, harmed a child. The idea is sickening, especially now that I have a daughter ... but it does help convince me that the man in my dreams was never truly me - that it's some fairytale me, some manifestation of insecurities and doubts.

What do you all think of your own dreams?

My daughter has just informed me that she wants to come and live with me for the next school year. I'm not sure how she came to this decision or what prompted it, and I'm not sure how to respond. While it would be wonderful to have her around, I'm not sure that my profession goes well hand in hand with being a single father of a pre-teen.

The only thing I know for a fact is that it's incredibly difficult to say no to her.

Part of me is sad - I'll miss the girls, I'll miss the hours - but the rest of me is pretty optimistic. And I got a job at the tea shop just down the street from where I used to work, so I can even still park in the same place.

It was just time for a change. And I didn't want to keep fibbing to Gracie.

I got a letter in the mail today from the state of California, and I'm not too proud to admit I wept when I read it. It was about Gracie, obviously, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. This little girl has made a difference in my life I can't even put into words. I was just overcome. I think many would be.

I know some of you expressed interest in news, so here it is.

As soon as the papers can be signed downtown Los Angeles? I have a daughter. And Grace has a father.
