This might not be the place to post about it, but I'm just so. Excited.

My new boots came today!

I'm especially excited because they'll match my jeans? I mean, I think my regular purple boots match them okay, but these are just out of this world.

See what I mean?


I can't wait to wear them! I'm just sad you can't see them on the radio.

To think, The Jetsons was set only 48 years from now. And Back to the Future II was only set in 2015. Part of me wonders where the flying cars are at, but then, I still remember life before the internet, so...wow.

Loyalty and friendship, so far that seems to be the theme of my dreams. And now my dream-self is planning to potentially ruin the life of his best friend in order to save him from something that would probably destroy him. It seems I walked into the open arms of the CIA with my eyes open and ready to do whatever my country might need of me no matter how it would change me, but my friend, the best and most decent human being I've ever met, I couldn't let it touch him. The things that you are required to do as a member of the CIA would chew him up and spit him out if it didn't outright kill him. Chuck deserves better than that.

Orion felt the same and asked me to take care of it. So I'm about to do something terrible, to save him, and he is going to hate me for it. As long as he ends up the way Chuck has already told me he does then I guess I can live with that.

I love all the holiday specials that come out this time of year. I wonder if ten, twenty, thirty...fifty years from now, kids will be watching Dexter Butterfingers' Holiday High-Jinx alongside Charlie Brown. Wouldn't that be something?

Wow... just as I thought fifth edits might be needed, I got the word, my book has been accepted as is from the fourth edit and rewrite. And I will know next week about a publication date.

It took me so long to get a second book accepted, I was starting to think it would never happen, and now it has. And all I can think is wow.

So guess who doesn't get Halloween off? Apparently one too many requested the day off for partying and fun. Unlucky me gets to go in and serve coffee and pastries to the crazy masses.

Who wants to come in today night? Bring me candy and a friendly, non-customer face.

I cancelled my class today due to severe laryngitis. Now that I see some virus appears to be going around, I'm wondering if I need to cancel for the entire week. It's impossible to run a lab without being able to give instantaneous verbal feedback. Our cadavers are fragile.

I will be out of town for a bit, I have Dragon*Con tickets! And I finally finished my cosplay. I'm excited - it took a lot of work! But yeah. Unless there's an emergency, I'll be back in a couple of days.

This week is weird even by my standards. Added to the list of things that went off, a now-dead laptop.

I'll be shopping for a new one soon, I guess.

This place is cool! A network where people, talk about dreams as if they are real, and about powers, and aliens, and all sorts of awesome stuff? This is definitely more entertaining than most of the places I've seen online.

Hi, all, I'm Ash, and I guess I'm the newest added on person to Valarnet!

I never was one to really talk to a lot of people, but one thing the Valarnet has helped do is to pull me out of that and make me sit up and take notice of things. Well, the net and Portia. But mostly the net, really, with it's crazy stories and interesting people. Portia is just awesome because she's Portia.

I like this place.

Sometimes there's only one thing to do when you're faced with this world, all the crap in it, and see things continually getting worse for others as time keeps going on. Sometimes it's not the time to be totally selfish and keep the abilities the dreams have been giving me a secret anymore.

So I think this post is actually me offering help, seeing what I can do if anybody on this thing knows somewhere you can train abilities or where they're gonna be needed later on when something like those blue things crops up. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm an in actual place where I can help, and it's better I don't just hide in the corner whimpering anymore.

I guess in other words, like I said in my dreams, this is me standing up if anybody wants that still.

I've been trying to cut down my hours lately and since I've had varying degrees of success with this in the past I wasn't expecting much but it seems that I'm now finding a much better work life balance. I wonder if it's an indication that I now actually have a life beyond work. I'm not sure I could claim that even just a couple of years ago.

Right, I never did catch the name of the person who suggested these Oreo knock-offs from the Trader Joe's, but they are so amazing!

So you know, thank you to whoever that was.

I missed the bouncy castles entirely, and I'm real sad about that. D'you think he'll set some more up if we all make puppy eyes at him?

Yes, we called our Dad. Wished him a happy thing with the stuff. Card's in the mail. (No, seriously, it is though. What the heck do we look like, ingrates?)

But now we've got to go have dinner with our parents tonight. There is fist shaking. FIST SHAKING. I hope you're all imagining it properly, because it's epic over here.

You'd better be there, Gin.

We are unsure about you, Percy. But we'll take your better half.

Hmph! Not the best set of dreams I've ever had. But I suppose there's really no way to make Cybermen a keen thing.

On the other hand, you lot were brilliant. Lovely job, Tara (as always), Rose, and Rickey. Just brilliant. Plus Pete's world was pretty nice, wasn't it? I thought it was nice. Could have used more little shops, but I expect that will come when they're a bit less busy with steel invasions.


Now what's this about bouncy castles?

One bad thing about slowly gaining dream memories and powers is that sometim4s the bad sides come with them. Not everything is either nightmares or sun and roses. Sometimes, you can have good dreams, and annoying side effects.

Take me, for example. I get magic from the dreams, but the kind of wizard I'm becoming had a hard time with electrical, electronic, and some mechanical things. The longer I Dream, the more this becomes true of real life, as well. I've gone through three phones and one laptop, as well as a car. If business wasn't good here, I would be in really bad shape.

Mind you, there are compensations. Magic is fun, and helpful in detective work. But sometimes... oi.

Assuming that means most everyone else is back to themselves, huh? L? M? Any letters in between?

Oh wait, there are no letters between those.

Alrighty then. No superpowers. No changed life-force. But still all the memories and skills.

Man, this had better be a short thing.

Still and all, I think I got off easy with this one. Everyone okay out there? Looks like the O.C. is up to a new kind of fun.

So I was coming out of the movie theater this past weekend when I overhear someone wondering aloud, "Do they actually animate stuff to go with stuff the voice actors do when they mess up? Or do they write scripted gags?"

Just to clarify, the answer is YES!

So guess I should say Hi and introduce myself. Social networking and all that.

I'm Billy and I've just moved to California to try and get my dream job. So if anybody knows of a film or television company who are looking for people please let me know. Absolutely willing to do anything - I make great coffee :) Gotta work hard to achieve your dream right?

Anyway it's great to be here and I hope to get to know some of you in real life too

I have just invented a whole new flavor; well, not so much invented as stumbled upon, but really what are inventions if not happy accidents? It's a wonderful thing though, tastes amazing, a bit refreshing and a bit odd really. Still, fantastic!

Mint Jammie Dodger with a hint of salt.

May I suggest trying it? It's absolutely wonderful.

Meeting with an architect tomorrow to get to work on designing my new bar. It'll be kind of nice, I know what I want the place to look like, generally, and I won't have that weird step between the storage in the back room and the bar anymore. I'm hoping to get the place open by the fall, because I'll probably go insane if I'm out of work for longer than that.

I beg all the teenagers and pretty much anyone else out there, do not try eyeballing vodka or any other alcohol. It can burn your corneas and cause blindness. I don't even understand how this became a thing. Who thought that pouring vodka in your eye was a good idea?

Getting shot sucks. At least it wont take long to heal. Stupid teenaged reflexes. Who robs restaurants anyway, anymore? Don't robbers have more style? Or is there no pride at all? Meh.

Being shot in this life really trumps the memory of being shot in a dream. In a bad way.

Also, hospital food and television programming sucks. I think they want to encourage people to get better by sheer will alone, just to get away from it.

I think I'm starting to get used to this internet thing. I've been introduced to funny pictures and videos of cats, which is apparently some sort of initiation rite?

Who knows, maybe next I'll start a website for my bookshop!

But likely not. One step at a time, as they say.

Now that it's been officially announced, I can finally say that I've joined the cast of the upcoming Red Widow. It was killing me, not being able to talk about it. In case anyone is wondering who the hell I am, I'm Glenn Rhee. I don't expect that everyone has heard of me, but I'm sure there's got to be at least one person out there who knows who I am. Figured that since I'll be in town again, it'd be nice to get to know some regular people.

I don't know who caused this clothing to happen, but I have one thing to say:
I LOVE YOU!

This has been so much fun! People's clothes keep falling off or disappearing, it's randomly switching into different outfits, and I've seen a lot of guys turned into really ugly drag queens. I would've liked to see more fo the women who keep posting on the net that they're suddenly in lingerie, but oh well.

Because there doesn't seem to be any way to stop it, we decided to have fun with it here at work. We managed to scrounge together a large box of accessories, props, and other misc. things. So when your clothing suddenly changed, you were required to go find some stuff to accessorize it and then get your photo taken. We've got them all posted up on a wall here in the lunch room.

Here's my favorite one of me so far:

SEVEN DAYS UNTIL THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY.

We just thought we'd remind you. There will be more details soon about party + venue + everything we expect from life, and everything you promised us.

In the meantime:

Tonks: Hope the rest of your birthday went well!
Percy: You're coming to our party. You do not have a choice in the matter.
Ginny: Ready for charity work and favors from us in return? We're thinking Wednesday.
Percy's Better Half: Read above. Minus the favor part.
Hermione: ... We got nothing. We just wanted to include you in our list.
Verity: Hi. We can see you working. Over there. Behind that thing. Yeah. You.

I have been attempting to get a certain song out of my head all day, and wound up singing some kind of mash-up on loop. Like this:

Domo Arigato, Mister Roboto

Makes me dance,
Brings me up,
Brings me down,
Plays it sweet,
Makes me move like a freak


Mister--Domo!

Makes me dance,
Brings me up,
Brings me down,
Plays it sweet,
Makes me move like a freak

Mister Saxobeat!

Domo! yeah, mmm yeah, mmm yeah, mmm yeah...
Domo! yeah, mmm yeah, mmm yeah, mmm yeah...

You're welcome. Because I know you all wanted to have it stuck in your heads too.

Heard from my younger brother, this morning. He's still an idiot, but he is getting into the music business. He's a little crazy, but maybe he'll turn his voice into something good.

Business seems to have turned twice as good overnight. I can only assume this is due to my new employee. She's rather good at what she does and I wouldn't be able to make this place run half as well without her hard work.

It's nice to actually work with someone again. Been a long time since I did so, and it feels right.
