My birthday was last weekend and while I love celebrating my birthday, the last few years have been more than a little strange, on that day, because of my Immortality. I know that I've stopped aging physically and unlike in my dreams where I'm already hundreds of years old, here I've only been a Warlock and immortal for a few years. So it's still strange to think that I'll be watching everyone I love age while I stay the same.

On a lighter note, I did have a great birthday, as always, and don't actually intend to stop celebrating it. I figure eventually I'll simply get used to it.

The mornings are turning super cold, and it's really starting to feel like winter. I can't wait until the Christmas music starts. Does that make me an odd duck?

Also, pies. So many pies! This upcoming week is Thanksgiving, and we'll be cooking pies nonstop to fill all the orders at BB1 and BB2. If anyone wants to order pies, now's the time! We'll have plenty for sale, too, without reservations!

There's a costume contest at the office, but I'm not sure I'm going to be participating this year. I've been told that I'm not allowed to wear my suit. To be fair, I understand how someone might assume I'd just put on my Iron Man suit and win all of the competitions, but that seems a little both unfair and lazy.

I'm waiting for inspiration to strike. Perhaps I'll get a costume this year after all.

Uggghhhhh, I'm so sick. :( . Terence brought home a Nintendo Switch, and I've been too sick to play. Feverish and coughing up one lung after the other... :( Boooo.

I better be feeling better by Halloween. Being sick is awful. :(

Does anyone have any go-to Netflix movies to watch or shows to binge when I'm laid up?

[Filtered away from Audrey]

So 31st October marks my 5th Wedding Anniversary, which according to the traditionalists means Wood is the appropriate gift.

I don't suppose anybody knows a place that will teach me how to do some woodburning?

Since the bakery is a Pokemon Go Gym, we had a ton of visitors today. Catching Chikoritas. And MewTwo? I haven't caught one of those yet.

Did anyone catch any shiny Chikoritas?

I'm still not sure whether I should be laughing at this story or cringing. Okay, I did both. Has anyone else seen this today? This woman wanted a big, grand wedding and asked her guests to all give her $1,500 dollars and when the majority refused and her fiance suggested they get married in Vegas, she went off on everyone.

Thank god, neither me or my husband felt this entitled and thank god, I'm a Warlock and could basically use magic to make our wedding as grand as we wanted it.

He bloody tried to send me away! After everything we'd been through together, he just sent me away. A holographic message to live my life, but how could I after everything he showed me?

So I went back. I looked into the heart of the TARDIS and saved him. I saved my Doctor. And what do have to show for it? A terrible headache and a little bit of heartache. I'll be in bed for the rest of the day.

I'm pleased to announce that I got my wand from my Dreams! I spent most of the day attempting to do dishes by magic, though I think I ended up with more broken plates than clean ones.

And I accidentally turned my favourite mug into a mouse. I managed to turn it back though. Mostly.

If anybody is curious what Glass House has been working on during our performance hiatus, go check out our website and the track we just put up. It’s not an official single but hopefully you guys like it. We also got some links up there to what we’re working on individually.

[Private to Magic Guild members]
Somebody suggested I reach out and see if any of you would be willing and able to try and help me figure out a way to get some freedom from my house. I’m going a little nuts just being stuck there all the time and my boyfriend is probably about as sick of it as I am even with friends coming over to hang out regularly. Even just being able to step out the door would be great.

OOC: pretend there’s a website okay? And the track they put up is a little edgier than what the band normally puts out

Has everyone heard about the rhino poachers that were eaten by lions in Africa? Now that's what I call karma. Honestly, does anyone feel bad for these guys? I certainly don't. Far as I'm concerned, they got what they deserved.

I do not know if anyone is watching the World Cup, but England actually made it through to the quarterfinals after defeating Columbia on penalty kicks! England is notorious for losing penalty kicks, if the matches get to that point, so it was positively brilliant to watch them pull through today. I am proud of my countrymen for not disappointing us once again.

There is tres leches cake in my fridge. I want a piece of cake, but I keep hearing the voice of my aunt saying "Joe, you haven't had any dinner yet. You need to eat an actual meal before you have any cake."

I have to say there's nothing quite like waking up to breakfast in bed and homemade Father's Day cards. I'm so lucky to have the family I have and I try hard not to take that for granted.

I hope everybody else who celebrates it had a good day too.

So over 300 emails in the last few days about GDPR. Seriously people? This shouldn't be a last minute thing, anybody with European customers should have known about it and sorted it out before this.

I decided to stop by the Magic Guild today and it appears that in my absence quite a few magic users have left the area. I mean, I can't blame them, to be honest. Being in New York where nothing too crazy happened was pretty nice, if I'm being completely honest. Being back here is a little strange since I hadn't expected to come back, but in a way it feels right. Of course, I probably won't be saying that the first time the county is invaded, but at least I can do something to help when that does happen.

Remember how I said I love when a plan comes together?

There was this old crashed Federation ship, the Franklin. One of the survivors of another ship that had been taken by these people had made it into her home and repaired it. We were able to jump start the ship's systems by... pushing it off a cliff. But hey, it worked.

We figured out that VHF signal ranges disrupt the network the enemy ships used to coordinate. So we blasted classical music on that frequency.

Classical music in 2263 being the Beastie Boys. Always one of my favorites.

I feel like in my other dreams we would have blasted Elvish or the Beatles

Sounds like the snow is disappearing back in the UK. My mum isn't snowed in anymore so that's a good thing. Still crazy how everything just stopped for a few days. Still hopefully things can start going back to normal over there now. Well maybe after the flood warnings.

Ugh, Taxes. Not my favorite time of year. My accountant retired last year, and I should have found a new EA at the time, but I foolishly thought that I could handle it all myself! Laughworthy.

Does anyone have a trustworthy accountant or EA on the books that they might recommend?

Hey guys! In case you didn't know, Izzy and I were on an episode of Food Network's "Bakery Wars" and we're having a viewing party here at the bakery! You'll have to come and watch with us (or watch at home!) to find out what sort of baked items we made, and whether or not we won the challenge and the cash!

We're going to have a viewing party here at BB1 the day the show airs. More details are coming soon! :)

Right. Hello there. I heard this is the best place to get to know more people, meet some new mates maybe even a roommate? No, no too soon for that, leave that for the next post? So, hello! Right, already said that. I'm Rose Tyler! Nice to meet all of you...so to speak. Been here a couple of months, but it took that long for me to get use to this place. Made my way over from across the seas and it's been a change! I like the weather here though.

So what happens around here? Anyone know of a good spot to get a cup of tea? And not this American stuff...proper British tea. I think I've had my fill of coffee at the moment! Rather nasty actually...no offense intended for those that enjoy it! Just...different from home, ya know? Plus it's never fun to drink when you have to make it 8 hours every day. But someone has to! My civic duty now! You know, I've actually seen someone break down when we ran out of the Anniversary Blend. You yanks really love your coffee.

My baby girl turns 1 year old today. You should see her with her cake. She's absolutely covered in the frosting. I don't know where this tradition came from of giving the one year old a piece of cake to smash into her face (and all over her body--there's even some in her hair!) but I love it.

I want it to be clear that I do not like musicals. I don't find them fun or entertaining, so much as a lot of... unnecessary noise. I find that life doesn't need extraneous singing.

So can someone please explain to me why I a.) suddenly know all the words to this song, b.) am singing near constantly today?

I've never really understood the appeal of posting all of your personal information online, but I can't fault a good communication tool if it means not turning into a recluse that recycles her own urine. Which I'm not, by the way. No matter what my brother says.

Er, anyway. Hi, Orange County. I'm Lena. I'm an engineer at Stark Industries (For now. If I don't find a more efficient cooling mechanism for this generator I may be out of a job soon). Please help me find things to do that aren't just work, so that my brother will get off of my back.

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?

If I never see another Valentine or glitter ever again, it will be too soon. Despite the cleaning I did before I left yesterday and the janitorial staff cleaning - there is still glitter from the children’s Valentine party all over my classroom.

It's a new year and I think I need to start making changes to my life.

As much as I like working at DP, cause I have a pretty awesome boss, I think that it's time that I start looking for a job in what I have a degree in. Any help in landing a job in the "computer science" world would be greatly appreciated. It's just time that I get a full-time 'adult' job, you know.

Hope that everyone had a good New Year's Eve.
