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.

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.

The other day, I came across a meme that made me giggle and that I actually agree with. Though I don't think my wife will necessarily like it, for which I am sorry, but I just have to share this!

Talk about a blast from the past. The Spice Girls are doing a reunion tour of the UK next year. Well, only four of them. Victoria Beckham won't be joining them, which doesn't surprise me, but still. Slightly disappointing. It would be totally awesome if all five of them got together again some day. But I'm probably just being overly hopeful on that front.

This announcement just brought back memories. Lots of good girl power memories. And my first girl crushes.

Since my last dream I've been wondering what Bill's punishment was going to be for killing one of our own and last night I got to find out. Pam and I were tasked with summoning him for his tribunal with the Magister, but first we allowed him to say goodbye to Sookie at the restaurant she works at. Of course Pam and I took the opportunity to pass out flyers for Fangtasia then we left.

At the tribunal, we were both questioned by the Magister who then told Bill that he could either be chained in silver for five years or turn a human to replace the vampire he destroyed. Silver burns us, so it was no surprise that he chose the less painful punishment.

I have a question for the other vampires here. I know that the dreams can change us so how long did you dream before changing?

It doesn't matter how many different versions of myself I dream of.

The first dreams, with the island...the ones after where I'm more established and accepted the nobility thing. The ones with the Cradle of Life. And the ones where I met a very attractive cop with a magical gauntlet and took a visit to the after life to bring her back. And now this new one I had last night.

My parents die. Even here, in this world.

It's like I'm always destined to be orphaned.

So apparently in my dreams I’m scared of the dark - or of being out at night when there’s no moon. I’m not exactly sure which it is because it’s how dark it is with no moon that’s bugging me in my latest dream, but I’m not going to let that or the person following me on my walk home from Planet Bang scare me into running. Or at least that’s what I was telling myself until I stopped under a street light and saw someone, or something, moving out in the shadows.

I would use my ability, but in the dream I’m worried that the person following me has a camera or already knows about my ability and is following me to try to force me to do something to prove what can I do. I don’t know why they’d want to but I don’t want to give anyone any proof. I grabbed a flamingo from a yard and used the legs as protection until I got home to my mom and I felt safe. A little creeped out in the dream by my alarm clock being turned around and my watch face down but that’s nothing too bad and I was able to go to sleep easily enough in the dream. Which is a weird sentence to write.

Although I do have a question: does anyone know what the words ‘O Mater Luna, Reginos nocis, adiuvo me nunc’ means because I was saying them in the dreams over and over again and whatever, or whoever, was after me stayed away - I saw a hand reaching for me until they heard me saying those words.

When I woke up this morning the flamingo legs were in the corner of my room and I just want to throw them away but - does anybody know what happens if you throw away an item from the dreams?

I love being in class with a bunch of theater nerds. If there is a song for any situation, you can bet someone will bring it up. Case in point, we decided today to debate Henry Higgins’ sexuality with the teacher, because Eliza Doolittle clearly is barking up the wrong tree there. The teacher actually thinks we’re reading things into the musical that aren’t there, but come on. He called himself a “confirmed bachelor” and everyone knows that was code back then for gay. She kept going on about how the time the musical took place wasn’t very accepting… proving our point. Because that’s why they needed to code it.

Eventually one of us decides to be an asshole* and break into “There! Right There!” from Legally Blonde the musical. I kind of feel sorry for my teacher for having to deal with half off the class singing “Is he gay or European?”, at the same time it was very fitting. And we were right.



*I might have been the asshole. Maybe. Possibly.

Okay so the party at my parent’s friends house wasn’t as lame as I thought it would be. At least it wasn’t once we found some hidden passages in the house and started exploring them. No clue yet what’s going to be on the other end of them but hopefully the next dream will shed some light on that. Maybe it’ll be a treasure room.

In light of the theme at the Golden Globes last night, Dream Me has been having a hell of a time. It's quite incredible what constituted to a woman being "ruined" back in the Edwardian Era. And what constituted as "consent".

It's rather depressing.

Anyway, we took a hit last night since no major stars wore Marchesa on the red carpet. You can thank Georgina Chapman's nasty husband for that. Caitroina Balfe wore McQueen. Several of the men had Burberry suits or tuxes.

I like Georgina, but she'd better file for divorce or she'll be filing for bankruptcy soon.

I've now seen at least four cars, since Thanksgiving, with the reindeer antlers and red nose. I bet a lot of the noses get stolen off cars. The antlers would be harder to steal, but the noses would be pretty easy.

Well, I can check "beat Catherine Zeta-Jones from Entrapment" off of dream!me's bucket list. Totally navigated a laser field to steal a painting. It was totally badass and Catherine's got nothing on me.

Also that awkward moment when dream!me slept with my step-mother and didn't even realize who she was until later. I'd say it'd make family dinners awkward, but they were going to be awkward even if that hadn't happened. Actually happened several dreams back, but said step-mother showed up again in this dream. And gods I don't like where any of this shit is going.

That was officially the weirdest way to spend my birthday in the history of ever. Note to my friends, please do not get me anything that resembles a statue thing of a cat because it may be cursed and start turning me into a cat. Needless to say, I've sat here today looking at our cats and find that I understand why empty boxes are the most amazing things ever.

You know. If you're a cat.

Okay, getting shot in the shoulder with an arrow is not my idea of fun. The arrow being laced with fucking fae kryptonite is even less fun. Especially when said fae kryptonite not only stops me from healing but also serves as a tracking device. Compared to what my previous dreams have been like, that was fairly low key. I'll definitely take that dream over the others.

[Filtered to Science-oriented people]

The fae kryptonite I mentioned above, I have it if anyone wants to research it. It's technically a mineral that's alive, if that peaks anyone's interest. It was dug out of my shoulder this morning, so that part is at least taken care of.

In case anyone is interested, Millennium Lint, that's the current name of our band, is playing at [name of club] on Saturday night. It is a 21 and over club, just an FYI. So come check us out.

Also, I'm beginning to run low on that True Blood stuff Pam gave me before she left. I'm not really looking forward to having to figure out how to get blood again once I run out. This is the unfun part of being a vampire. Well, and the part where everyone I love will age and die while I watch. That part isn't fun either.

Well, now we're on our way to the Land of the Dead on a boat called the Egyptian Queen. It has moving eyes and is generally unusual. Of course the Captain of the boat is a man named Bloodstained Blade who is less man and more...mostly man with a double-bladed axe for a head. Totally normal. I've been on this boat before, only the last time it was with Carter and Sadie's father.

Khufu's response to hugs is always entertaining. Well, I don't think I've actually hugged him before this dream, but apparently he thought he'd repay the kindness of my hugging him by searching for bugs in my hair. Leave it to the baboon to try to pick bugs out of my hair. I guess he did keep Sadie and Carter safe. Even if Thoth was particularly cruel this time around. I'd love it if dream me could stop eating Friskies, but I guess once a cat goddess, always a cat goddess. Today's flavor was tuna. Not that I ate much of it. The whole "I'm part of the reason your mother is dead because she chose to help a goddess out with a jailbreak and used all her magic to seal my enemy in our prison, which killed her. Oh, and this just so happens to be where I made the deal with your father to protect Sadie and live as a cat and thus abandoned my post" guilt was getting to me.

Before I woke up, we were at the First Cataract. The entrance to the Land of the Dead.

Maybe I'm over analyzing this, but we are ten days into 2017 and Valentine's Day is over a month away. But everywhere I look there are red and pink decorations, sales on chocolate, teddy bears, and all the other cliche stuff that girls (and guys, I suppose) are meant to expect as a present. People always talk about how much pressure there is to have a good time at Christmas, but there is just as much pressure to find someone this time of year to avoid being single and feeling left out.

It's ridiculous.
