My dreams are taking me to Texas with Liz to find a faith healer that maybe can help my mother. That should be interesting because real life me is super skeptical.

In other news I watched the Framing Britney documentary and I am fully Team #FreeBritney now. I can't believe how misogynistic everyone was back in the 90's - no 17 year old should have to answer questions about her breasts and virginity status. It's understandable that she had a breakdown, but I think the time has come for her father to removed as her conservator so someone unrelated can help manager her things. I just want to give her a big hug.

It's rough when your dreams give you some insights into some actions that may need to happen in your life here. My mother has been suffering from memory loss in the dreams and I made the decision that it was time to put her into a home so she could have people watching over her all the time because I'm not able to be around 24/7. It was a tough one, but I think it was ultimately for the best.

I did finally get a gift from the dreams though. I asked Guerin to fix up the sign for my bar in the dreams and a smaller version (thank goodness) showed up here.

[Private to Guerin]
It's weird to send you a thanks for something that happened in the dreams, but thank you for letting me cry on your shoulder and fixing the sign. You've definitely got a soft core inside that grumpy exterior.

I can safely say I have watched way too many Christmas movies already. Only the cheesy ones, none of the classics yet. There have been some pretty bad Hallmark ones. I'm still annoyed they finally put a gay male couple in one of their movies and only give them just a bit of the side plot. Come on now.

But sometimes you need a small break from reality and a formulaic plan of a woman quitting her big city job, moving to a really poorly Christmas themed named town, and falling in love with the local handyman, and discovering the true value of Christmas. Also, it's great watching with a tub of popcorn to run commentary through the whole thing as you guess the plots before they happen.

We have a thing in my dreams apparently called a Friendship Dinner. Though it's also entirely possible that it's something I just came up with. Just coming together with friends and being together and honoring that friendship and one another. I think it's fitting that I had that dream now right before Thanksgiving. Because okay, it could maybe be seen as similar but it's also a really nice alternative I think to Thanksgiving for people who might not want to celebrate it or have bad memories with it.

I don't know. Either way I think I want to throw one one of these days.

I'm not quite sure if I understand why I have to have these dreams. After the high school reunion things are pretty chill and I decided to have a 90's night to honor Rosa since it's the 10th anniversary of her death. Then Liz showed up and explained that Rosa had left some sort of scavenger hunt behind, so off we went to discover that.

I also have to say that I'm greatly amused by always playing therapist while I'm tending the bar for everyone. Alex, I'm going to start charging you for advice ;)

Well, if you can't beat them, join them

After being in the area for over a month, I figure I might as well introduce myself. I'm Donna Troy, recently arrived from New York and the owner of Aurora Studio, so if you have any photography needs, feel free to reach out.

Also despite being warned ahead of time, getting something from dreams? Definitely odd. Could have done without seeing Terry and the start of

So I agreed to read palms for our 10 year high school anniversary in my dreams. I think it triggered something because I'm definitely reading palms a little more strongly than I was before. I mean it's not hard to know how to interpret palms, but during a reading today at the store I felt a little more than I usually do.

Does anyone wanna be my guinea pig and come over for a reading?

I'm adding Eren as a passenger to the list of conditions that I will not drive under ever again. On the way back from our honeymoon today I was driving to give him a break behind the wheel and we got cut off by somebody who came really close to hitting our front end. My grown adult, college graduate husband rolled his window down, leaned his head out and shouted at the other driver that they should go 'choke on a bag of dicks'. The future of journalism ladies and gentlemen.

So excited, I got a call from a band I auditioned for last weekend and they want me to join them as their singer. The band is so cool - they only perform songs by black artists and I've already started looking for some purple outfits to get my Prince on.

On the dream front basically had a big time skip to 10 years later and our high school reunion is taking place soon. The only good thing about that is that Liz is finally back in town now. I've also seemed to really perfect my palm reading for people at the bar and it's definitely a great side hustle. I feel like it's starting to bleed over into this world a little bit and I think my mom is eyeing me to help do some readings at the shop now.

I do not recommend cross country moves. I have a hell of a lot to unpack but I'm done for the night. I'm going to sit on my lawn chair with a beer and catch the game.

The real reason I don't do other social media than here? Other than not having time to update regularly for followers because I keep myself to busy to even sleep of course - I get way too easily entranced watching celebrity twitter meltdowns.

Not fun when you dream about one of your best friends dying and then you immediately can't tell if it's real or not so you wake them up super early to check and make sure you're alive.

Her whole death is really suspicious and I really hope it was one big accident. Also doesn't help that then everyone graduated and left me behind. But in good news I bought a bar in the dreams because they fired my mother and I'm all about karma.

Almost wish that bar was here so I could give myself all the free tequila.

I gotta say my birthday party on Saturday was well worth the hangover yesterday. Good food, good drinks, and good company is really all you need to have a celebration. I also can't complain about the massage and facial earlier in the day, I have never felt so relaxed in a long time.

Think I might need to do a monthly massage now, haha.

Oh my god, has nobody else heard of the term "birthday month"?! The barista didn't seem to agree with me that you have a whole month to celebrate your birthday.

Tonight's celebrations come with fireworks. I take no responsibility for how they turn out. Obviously I don't have control of the presentation.

Hope everyone is having a happy and safe Fourth of July. Currently just hanging out in the backyard and having a BBQ, which is definitely nice and relaxing.

Morning started out weird with some more dreams of living in Roswell, New Mexico and gotta say dreaming about how weird high school was isn't exactly my ideal way to start up a Saturday/Holiday. Although doing an interpretive dance to protest Sarah Palin during homecoming senior year definitely feels patriotic. But at least it's now July and I'm excited to get started figuring out what to do my birthday!

The new Lady Gaga album, Chromatica, is GREAT! I had way too much fun listening to it a couple times while in the back room helping my mom sort things for the shop. It really makes me want to get out to the club and start dancing. I'm just excited about her getting back to dancefloor pop music.

When I left California ten years ago, I went as far as I could get with the thought to never look back. I started a new life in New York, and it was a good life. It's my life, you know?

I never intended to come back to California. But now that I'm here, I'm thinking about staying. Why the hell would I do that? My childhood was miserable, there's so few good memories here for me.

I came back for my mother's funeral. I didn't come back to stay. But there's something...holding me here. I can't rally explain it even though I feel it. It's like I've already forgotten my life in New York.

So, yeah. Hi. I'm Alex. And I'm staying.

Woke up this morning to find my prom dress, from the dreams, hanging on the back of my closet door. I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with it since it's clearly a prom dress and clearly from ten years ago. Has anyone else gotten clothes from their dreams that they just can't wear? What have you done with them?

There is nothing more tedious than a board meeting where the board just shout needlessly at one another.

At what point do old white men stop craving the sound of their own voice? I'm considering replacing them all with graduate students, millennials. That would give them the shock of their life.

Hmm, if I purposely try to cause a heart attack and it happens, is that manslaughter?

This will be weekend #2 for Knott's Scary Farm. I love it! Every so often one of my fellow actors tries to scare me by ripping on a chainsaw or coming out of nowhere with a "scary" growl. I just tell them "Nice try" and blow them a kiss.

That being said, it really is a good time! You should come!

I guess it's finally time to bite the bullet and hire on some new staff.

The Wild Pony is looking to fill the following positions: Bartender, bouncer, cook. If any of those sound like a job anyone on here would be interested in, drop me a line.

Proof that I got Percy to sing with me in front of people.

Now it's just preparing for a solo concert at 64 Below the weekend of September 14th and 15th, where there will be a major clue on what my next show is - auditions for which will be September 21st and 22nd and then call backs the following week on September 28th and 29th.

I had wondered why a lot of you seemed to be so invested in your dreams, but I think I've figured it out. I'm generally pretty good at remembering my dreams, but this one felt more like a memory than anything else. It wasn't anything special, just a conversation with my mother which I'm sure I must have had here when I was a kid too, except we were living in Roswell, New Mexico (yes, that Roswell).

It was actually really nice. I miss having conversations like that with her.

So last month (I think it was last month...) I posted something about my elderly neighbor who likes to be up sawing and hammering at the ass-crack of dawn and who also likes to stand on his porch at night staring off into space.

Some of you thought I should try talking to the old guy, so I did. Turns out he spent most of his life as a furniture maker in Arizona and, according to him, the only time to get that kind of work done and not roast your ass off is before the sun is up. Also, according to him, the evening is when he "does his thinking". Not entirely sure what that means and he hasn't really expanded on that, but he seems like an ok guy who's a bit homesick. His son moved him out here when his wife died and he's not exactly happy about it.

So, yeah, those of you who said I should talk to him, were pretty on the spot.

Having Chip stay with me while Amycus and Regulus are away has made me realize I want a dog of my own. Not as large as he is of course - I don’t think I could afford that amount of food each month for one thing. For another I’m fairly certain he’d take up my entire couch forcing me to sit on the floor to watch anything in the living room. And then there’s the matter of just how much he’d shed. No I think a smaller less hairy breed is the way to go for me. Does anyone know of any rescue groups or shelters that specialize in those types of breeds? Possibly one who won’t drive my neighbors absolutely mad with nonstop barking while I”m in class and at work?

Tomorrow night is Ranchero Night at the Wild Pony. We've got live music and hot meals for anyone who needs one. Be forewarned, the band is awful, but at least they're free.

So if you're looking for a hot meal in a friendly atmosphere, come by, and if you're looking to volunteer let me know. We have Ranchero Night on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.

So... we're buying a house. I mean, technically, Nico and Hazel's dad is buying a house, he's just putting it in Nico's name. But we're hopefully moving out of our apartment soon, to somewhere the dogs have room to run around and play. It's not ours yet, there's still details to be worked out. But... we've started the process. Which means we're also going to have to start the process of actually moving. Last move wasn't so bad, since we moved in from the dorms. And just gradually brought everything from our parents' houses in. This is going to be our first actually big move. And hopefully also our last, because we're actually going to have a house.

It still doesn't feel real yet.

Okay, I’ve just about had it with this stroll down memory lane that my dreams seem to be intent on. Although I do have a lot better taste in guys here than my dreamSelf seems to, judging by the first boyfriend she ever had. If you’re going to have long hair - take care of it. No one actually likes the greasy hair look.

I have this new neighbor who moved into the condo next to mine. Older guy, probably in his 70's and I swear the man doesn't sleep. He's turned his back porch into a work space and I hear him out there at the ass-crack of down, sawing or hammering or whatever. He's still awake when I get home at like ten or eleven at night. Every single light is on in his house. Sometimes he's standing on the front steps staring at the street. Its kind of weird.

I didn't think I'd actually say this, but for the first time I'm glad I'm here and not in Boston. It's hotter there right now than it is here and it looks like that's going to be the case for a few days. While I miss the East Coast, I don't miss the humidity during their heatwaves.

I had such a surreal dream last night. I got to dream about being up in some tower and seeing these beautiful lanterns lighting up the night sky. The sky was absolutely FILLED with them. It is probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen, but that was it. It was like my subconscious slipped into that and then out of it immediately.

So weird, but I definitely am inspired to do some painting of it today! At least there's a bonus there.
