Turns out my dream life is even more fucked up than my real life.

I just finished watching that documentary on Netflix, Abducted in Plain Sight. I don't even know what to think of that. I just can't wrap my mind around it. That girl's parents have boggled my mind. How these people just continued to fall for that man's lies and continued to keep him in their lives in one way or another is just insane.

Has anyone else watched it?

So the only thing worse than being home on a Saturday night is being home on a Saturday night, sober, and with no purpose.

Well. I have a purpose. And that purpose is to listen to random music, and share a weird survey with you all because I am bored. as. fuck.

California, I am in you! What is up? It's been a long time, but I am glad to be home. You never realize just how much you miss home until you come back. Speaking of, I don't suppose anyone has a spare couch I could crash on for a few days until I find a place of my own?

Also, wow. I knew California had a lot of hippies still, but all of you are all way too into your dreams.

I'm really glad the government reopened, even if it's just for three weeks, and that man caved like a house made of cards. There were so many people going without their jobs or being forced to work without payment, not to mention all the little things that we take for granted that weren't being done. Like food inspections. I mean, we already found out in November that salad wants to kill us all. Without people doing the job of inspecting it, it can. On the other hand, it makes me sick he's using it as a diversion tactic to keep everyone talking about something other than another of the people that worked with him getting arrested, making it closer until he goes, too.

In less political news, I really, really hate Tumblr's new policies. Let's ban everything not safe for work, but surprise! The porn bots aren't going anywhere. Instead, let's flag my perfectly innocent photograph of our pet bunny as porn for no reason.

Look, I get that Flopsy is naked. In my defense, you try to find pants that will fit a dwarf rabbit, then we'll talk. What part of a rabbit cleaning her face looked like porn to you?

Dear British Parliament, stop wasting time with no confidence votes. You have seventy-two days before the EU exit with no deal that would devastate everything. Those of us living and working abroad need to figure out our visas and crap.

The times I wish cracking some heads in government would actually work. I'll just prepare for having a continuous hangover headache for the next couple months.

To be from London and living here, it brings upon a slew of thoughts and the urge to travel back given recent events. Hasn't been this bad since IRA bombings in the 90s. However, it's a challenge that will take a generation or so to overcome - but we will, and living in fear is no way to live at all.

But alright, I won't go on about that. I find this is entirely too accurate when it comes to parenthood:

It's hard enough dreaming of relationships with people. These intricate and complex relationships where the feelings just ... creep in.

And then watching them die because of something you did, someone you crossed. I've never wanted to internet stalk someone this much before.

How do people cope with knowing people in the dreams, knowing them so well you feel you know them in life, and then letting them go?

It hard to mourn when they never existed, not in this reality. But the sucker punch that comes with it is so hard to deal with.

Hard to believe that in exactly a month, I'll be married. If you'd asked me whether or not I thought I'd be here about three years ago, I'd have laughed wholeheartedly. Ah, how things change. But at least for this wedding (unlike in my dreamland - plus that wedding was officiated by Jiminy Cricket and interrupted by a curse or something, what else is new), it'll happily involve my very first love. The ocean, and my ship. The Roger's all ready to go to host a gathering and most are invited provided that you don't act like a twat. Or try to curse us because I will bloody well kill you.

Our daughter's also turning one a week later, so while we'll spend our wedding night someplace fun the trip to Spain won't come until after we've celebrated with her and friends. She's already got an outfit but she needs a wee cake to smash, I presume. Something not with baby fondant, if anyone's got suggestions.

Thought never crossed my mind, not once. And yet... I suppose when in the business of ruining career criminals plans, these things will happen. At least I didn't sleep with her.

I think I severely underestimated what it would be like, exactly, to be pregnant in July. Flowy maternity dresses, mocktails, and homemade popsicles have been my lifesavers. I basically just feel like a hot water bottle and I've still got months to go.

Though it is interesting feeling him move more. Interesting to want to organize the nursery to oblivion and then cry when it doesn't look right. And to know that I'm gaining weight specifically for the purposes of 'maternal stores of fat.'

I also started my fourth set of dreams. Demonic monsters on a killing spree - this can only be a job for a ramshackle team of those who dabble in the occult, and I know just who I have to see to get that started. Turns out he is just as prickly there as he is here, but I think I would be worried if he wasn't.

Today I had my first experience of someone rudely asking me if I was pregnant. I thought this was more a faux pas nowadays, but no, people apparently still do it.

The answer was yes, and may as well say it here too. I'm due in November and can eat again without throwing up so I guess it's obvious I've been going to town on, well, everything I can stuff into my mouth.

Anyone ever come to a point in these dreams where you don't know whether to feel guilty because you inflicted so much damage to the people around you to save your own ass - or to applaud your own twisted, manipulative ingenuity on faking your own death? Starting witch hunts, making deals with a werewolf, coming between two brothers again--

Mystic Falls. 1864. What a ride. I'll drink to that while taking advantage of this hotel room's bubble jets.

I hate to bother those on this network for something that may seem trivial, but eventually I will run out of sick leave. And there is also that I dislike being away from my work laboratory when there is, well, plenty of work to actually be done.

But I have something of a problem. Magic is one specialization I am not well-versed in, but if there is a way to, say, hide appearances in the event that one has experienced a rather jarring 'dream bleedover'? I would be most appreciative of the help. And would find a way to provide compensation, of course.

At least being home has allowed me to read in excess. The world's largest dinosaur footprint was only recently just discovered in Australia! That is exciting, isn't it?

Everyone's alright, I hope? After that pretty interesting...interlude, from last week?

It's amazing that, in the OC, with the arrival of spring comes the desire to vacation far away from here. I'll take honeymoon suggestions, if anyone has them.

Because people who get married sometimes go on honeymoons. As of now, it's still sinking in that someone actually wants to marry me and go on a honeymoon, but I'll get there. I'm also not great at proposing, somehow the restaurant managed to catch fire that night, so I'm kind of glad I'll have to in theory do it only once.

It's decidedly strange, when moving to a new place, when the list of things you should check out includes a network.

I expected the laundromats, the coffee houses, the entertainment shit. A network? Wasn't on my priority list until it was brought up, and then curiosity.

So what's the big deal?

Some sects of our Magic Guild are looking a little sparse, since people have come and gone over the weeks and months. I thought I would put out another open call for recruitment. Potions are not my specialty, but I have been practicing more and more - however, we could use the help there and in most other areas.

Please let me know if you are interested. I'm Zatanna, by the way, in case we have not been formerly introduced.

Of all the things to wake up to Clyde was not what I was expecting. And as much as I'm sure he appreciates his little shell cover, I would've appreciated his vivarium.

My history professor today said (quote) "I don't want to kill anyone's vibe but history is basically just the extended study of human misery". If my dreams are any indication, that seems pretty true.

I haven't had any dreams this month, which is both welcome and incredibly weird. I'd have liked to see some more of our moderately happy ending, but I guess there's only so much goat chasing to do. It's been pretty relaxing, not having to think about who I'm going to see die if I go to sleep.

So, what's the best place for a man to get a good drink around here? Not too fancy, please, I ain't looking for cocktails and night club nonsense. I want a bar with cold beer and maybe a pretty waitress or two but that's not necessary. The beer's the part I'm most interested in. Cold and fresh and not super expensive.

And where can I get some decent cigarillos? Seems to be they ain't as common here as where I'm from. Or a decent cigar shop would do. Might have what I'm looking for.

The hangover that I'm still feeling today, from Saturday night's indulgences, means that I've come to the realization I need to share some of the wealth from Skyhold's wine cellar. There's enough of a supply to share, anyway. These bottles are all from Thedas - there's honey mead, sipping whiskey, wine from Tevinter that you have to drink with a catsbane powder to counteract the poisoning, black currant brandy, Orlesian liqueur, something made in a bathtub, and a bunch of other stuff but also most notably Dragon's Piss. No one knows what it is. It might be literal.

I've gotten estimates to bring electricity to the fortress, though in the mountains it's tricky - one strong breeze can send the wires down for a few hours. I think the main rooms will have electricity, but most guest rooms will just be candles and wood fires. Hot water for all facilities will definitely be a go though. I guess we can call it 'eco tourism.' There's a throwback to another era, in Morocco, that I've been researching for inspiration. I might take a trip there to stay at the place, just for research purposes and to know that running a hideway without a lot of electricity is possible.

Anyway, this has been your booze-soaked post for Monday morning, enjoy.

I heard on the radio today that, according to one of those studies that probably aren't scientifically accurate or whatever, that only 40% of couples are consummating their marriage on their wedding night. Only 40%! The rest are apparently too tired, too drunk, or want to keep partying with friends.

I don't want to live in this bloody world anymore.

But alright, this is also an annoucement to say the Hanged Man is back up to its former glory after the demon debacle. Sorry about that, we Thedosians love our catastrophes I suppose. Anyway, come on in for a chat and the Rat Droppings ale. Brewed right there!

Even if my dreams have tapered off - the new ones, anyway - apparently whatever powers that be feel it's prudent for me to still receive 'gifts.' The Wrath of Lovias sounds ominous, but it's really just a staff best used for channeling wintry magic - I know a few spells, but I'll have to work on more, even with me being down an arm for casting. The staff has an intriguing origin though, it's sort of designed after a staff belonging to the former Archon Lovias; an Archon is the mage who rules entirely over the Tevinter Imperium. But this particular Archon finally succumbed at age 89, which is a pretty good lifespan for medieval times, his death caused by choking on a fishbone of all things.

The whole story is the subject of a few comedic plays in Tevinter, which I did get to see the times I've dreamed of traveling there. Awful, but. Hilarious.

Anyway, I've gotten back to work with my regular client sessions and work with NAMI - the party to kick off their series of hiking events is coming up, and there are prizes available for the most creative hiking boots. I figure if you can spice up hiking boots, you probably deserve a prize anyway.

It has been some time since I posted of the Magic Guild which was formed about a year ago, but we are still going strong and I thought I would let the network at large know that assistance is available during this latest...adventure. I specialize in healing and divination, but the first is likely more useful now. We also have defense and offensive capabilities at our disposal.

There was a rift here before but it's closed now. But it's nice to see our odd dreaming community band together in times of crisis.

This is kind of important, so I'll keep it brief and just stick to the facts rather than ramble:

1. If you happen to come across a glowing green pocket in wherever, please don't touch it. Instead, alert me via private message or here and I'll come close it.

2. What comes out of these pockets tend to be dangerous, they're demons, but they're relatively simple enough to kill. Even so, I'd recommend the buddy system until these rifts are closed.

3. If anyone can fly or has a way to otherwise achieve a birds-eye view of the county and can give me a general idea of where you see glowing green pockets, I'd appreciate it.

Fuck me Thank you.

I'm not formally used to this network sort of thing but I was told it could be of some use.

Seeing as I'm new to the area I was hoping some of you would be so kind as to point me in the direction of a reputable store for texts. Not the Twilight and Harry Potter sort. Real books of the new age and old.

And also a decent bar or two would be lovely.

That's why I'm not quite admitting that I was wrong.

But I'm also admitting Zee might have been a little bit right.

I drank more than enough to put myself out of commission last night, there's no questioning that, but...I don't even know why I'm bothering to write this here, it's just an old bastard rambling on after something's rattled his cage...I mean, who the fuck even cares, right? What's the bloody point?

I had a dream. A real one, one that I remembered after waking up. That never happens. Hasn't happened for years. The booze made sure of that.

God that poor girl, I can't even think about what happened to her.

And that's not even touching on the lung cancer. Which I suppose isn't too far fetched, considering how much I smoke. But I did manage to fool Hell's top three demons into letting me live, cancer free. Points to me, there.

The rest can fuck right off, though.

I didn't realize Lent had arrived so quickly. In my plan to give up smoking, I discovered today that I still had around two-thirds of a pack left. I couldn't bring myself to throw them away, but I couldn't do with the temptation around, so I spent most of the day chain smoking.

Now I'm sitting outside in my garden, hoping my lungs might forgive me. Might even take a walk.

But! To keep myself on course, every time I think about buying a new pack, I'm going to put that money aside. Then afterwards, I'll either buy myself a carton or go out on the town. Likely both.

I hadn't the faintest idea that you're actually supposed to tip the people who package a takeaway order you pick up yourself. And then I got called a "twat" when I said I hadn't got cash.

Three weeks until my next fight in Los Angeles. I'm actually rather excited again. Two weeks until I have to make sure I'm close enough to hit weight. Two weeks to eat salads with meat on top, but no junk food. Except caffeine, sorry world, THAT won't happen.

I'd also like to announce that I have the best better half ever - seriously how many guys actually like letting their girls go get beat up? And spoil them rotten anyways? Valentine's was a successful day, the last two weeks have been perfect, and it can't get better than this. Even if the usual shenanigans of this city happened, fuck it.

Oh and I passed all my classes. One semester left of That crap until I'm done. I know daddy wants me to take over the family business but I am just not really feeling it. Sorry dad.
