Getting out my sewing machine. Halloween is right around the corner, and now I've got a costume to make. Actually, I'm pretty excited about it. I haven't used my machine in weeks.

Anyone else making their own costume, or am I the only one? ...anyone else dressing up? That's an adult thing to do, right?

Does anyone know where a good, relatively cheap auto parts store is? The woman at the grocery told me that this was the place to be. She sort of implied it was the end-all-be-all of pretty much every way to communicate. She called it a really politically incorrect classified ads section?

I just moved here and I have to admit, my GPS is failing me.

Maybe because I don't have one.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Oh, by the way, I'm Bee.

I'm pretty sure I have the best boss around. I'm just saying.

It might be wise for me to invest in a cot or something. I'm pretty sure I'll be spending a lot of my time off the clock at work.

You should come by Mercy's Garage when you get off today and come see my new project.

Waking up in someone else's place with four guys?

Not what I expected this morning.

I'm running out of sick days at this point.

I'd really like September to be over, already. Between OC weirdness (though Cora seems to be doing better, thank god), my dreams, and the last full moon, I've had about enough.

I was worried that the more dreams I had, the worse I'd get around the full moon, and joy of joys, I was right. It started out with just a general restlessness, but last night I got fangs and claws.

Which seem to have stuck around past the apex of the full moon, so that's a new development.

I'm just -- done. I'm done. I want off.

Seriously? My dreams are already nightmares. I don't need a whole helping of crazy on top of that.

Woke up screaming and flailing. I hit my dog Sasha in the face in the process. Now she refuses to even come near me and has this look of 'what the heck did I do?'. Pobrecita.

Damn this crazy ass county.

Fell asleep while they were taking my walking boot off and poking my foot, almost punched a nurse in the face as I was waking up. She said I was muttering in my sleep. Got to the shop and was putting in orders for parts. I woke up flailing from a nightmare and knocked over my computer.

Seriously. What the hell.

Dean, I'm shutting shop, We can make up the work when I'm not falling asleep sitting up.

I figured it was bound to happen eventually, but one of my co-workers challenged me to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. I know you're supposed to donate or do the bucket, but I chose to do both. Oh my god it was freezing! I didn't think it would be THAT cold!

Those Dreams just get crazier and crazier don't they? I don't think I've ever met someone like the man in my dreams. He's... well he's different. He's a vampire, and while admittedly the ones in my dreams are all bad news and vicious, he rides around in an old VW bus that's painted like the Mystery Machine. And apparently we're friends, really good ones actually. But his Mistress dropped him nearly burned and fatally dead in my home.

What a dream to have. Woke up a little panicked thinking someone was going to be dropped in my living room. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Now that my dreams are over, at least I assume they are, they've just been repeating on and off. I'll go weeks with regular dreams about random things then suddenly a get various dreams. Every now and then I even get things from my dreams mixed in with the regular ones. Like last night, I dreamt that a Hurlock and Morrigan owned a pet shop. Don't even ask me where that came from. I seriously don't know.

And in other news, my mother wants to come visit me. I'm not entirely sure what to do about that. I mean, I'd love to see my mother, especially since I've been dreaming about her being dead for the last couple of months, but I'm also worried that something crazy will happen when she gets here.

I wish I was like my friends in my dreams.

No, really, I do. A broken foot is no joke and they can heal it while they sleep. Jerks.

If anyone's cars have been damaged in this recent spree of... madness, if you make an appointment here or mention the network, I've got you covered.

Some days you do just fine. Some days, you drop a wrench and an entire engine block on your foot.

No really, that was my day. I think I'd rather deal with the mess of the explosions or whatever than get told you have a bunch of broken bones in your foot and you messed up your ankle trying to get it off.

Looks like it's gonna be a ramen month.

Other people's calendars have things like birthdays, or vacations. Or deadlines, or other such very important information.

The calendar at our house has two things:
  1. Catholic holidays
  2. Food related days

Cheesecake Day was a great success.

We don't speak of Tequila Day.

(This Sunday is S'mores Day, everyone ought to celebrate.)

Let's just go with last night was the most random night of my life. I am not entirely sure I liked it. But weird to the max, just totally weird. Random and I don't even know how to explain it. Ugh. So glad I'm not opening the shop today, I'd probably drop an engine on my head.

So these past few days have been interesting and busy. Adopted a dog and it's been love at first sight.

Except for the couch. Guess there was bound to be a causality at some point. She only chewed on a little bit of the arm though.

Need a name for this little cutie. Any suggestions? I'm kinda bad at names.

So. I rolled over this morning and found a walking stick from my dreams. Well I'm guessing it's from my dreams. I haven't dreamed of this one yet. But. Where else would it come from around here? unless there are magical looking walking stick gnomes running around with the laundry ones.

Let me tell you rolling onto a walking stick is not a fun way to wake up. They're not comfortable.

Another dream, another night. Although this time it was more vivid than the last. I wonder just how real these are. It made it hard to focus on work this morning. I was pretty sure the stuff of my dreams was going to walk through the garage doors. I need more coffee for this.

Also all my laundry is folded. Dude, I leave that shit in a pile when I'm done, who snuck in and folded laundry? even the shop towels I brought home are neat.

So a full moon on Friday the 13th. That's gotta be lucky, right? Here's hoping nothing gets weird.

Meanwhile, I got the kids after my shift today, since Father's Day is coming up and surprises have to be planned.

Thor has his head under the couch, which clearly means I can't see him and will therefore not give him a bath to get glue and glitter out of his fur. Smart dog. So well hidden.

Woah okay, yeah, uh first time Dreamer here, please tell me they're just really potent dreams, right? I have a feeling though, after seeing so much on here, that when it hits you like a ton of bricks and you wake up feeling weird about it all, it's not so much dream as Dream.

Someone asked me today why if I was a Veteran [to be fair I do have a photo of me on the wall with my uniform on with a friend, but I lost that friend so its a memory], why am I working on cars, and that I looked healthy enough, why wasn't I still serving. Asshole is lucky I was halfway under a car, I couldn't throw a wrench at his head. Don't, just don't. Injury took me out. And I'm not going back to aggravate it. It's bad enough some days at the shop I wish I could just quit for the day because of the ache. Why are people so seriously insensitive?

14 hour days in the garage are making me a little crazy. Anyone want to bring a girl something to eat? I just don't have time to leave. I'm on here instead of doing paperwork, but if I leave the building I probably will just go hide in a corner until all this work is caught up.

Lesson for this week, brought to you by me, for free: Getting fingers stuck in engine blocks tears skin off knuckles. That's common sense, right? But here's the real lesson, no matter how tired you are don't scrub your hands later on in the day with the hard bristled brush.

I may have been so tired when I got out of work yesterday I went through my normal closing routine, which includes scrubbing grease out of my hands, and I wasn't paying attention and wire-bristle brushed my knuckles.

New power words for the shop were discovered. Ye-ouch.

You'd think working out, pretty much every day, would leave you ready for anything. But then I went swimming instead of working on the Opel, and I found muscles I forgot I had. Holy crap. I forgot how sore you can get.


At least I got some time away from the Shop, and didn't be a hermit all day. Although I swear I'm going to turn into one pretty quickly. And now I have grease back under my nails and it feels normal, good and normal. Swimming is great but it's not really my favorite thing. I just wanted water.

I really love this city. I was able to find a really old Opel GT to work on. Project cars! I love them. Even if it's going to take forever to get her up and running again. That's okay, totally worth it.

Sometimes after spending two hours looking for an electrical short, it's a 2 minute fix that makes me bang my head on the hood of the car and wonder why it took so long to find. Sometimes cars, you make me mad.

You know the best looks I get are the people who come into the shop thinking they're gonna find a guy under the car. Sorry guys, I'm a chick and I can handle cars stop being so stereotype happy. Also I will kick the next customer in the shins who goes "So you're favorite car to work on is a Volkswagen, Mercedes?" with a grin thinking they're funny. You aren't.
