If I'm going to be turning into a werewolf at some point in the future, I really need to get drunk more often, while I can.

Hello!

No, that’s too formal.

Hi, guys!

Wow, that’s rude. Not everyone is a guy.

Hey, peeps!

Does anyone say peeps anymore? Okay, Urban Dictionary is telling me they don’t.

I’m Merrill! Good start. This is so exciting. Has anyone else felt like they didn’t fit in before they started having their dreams? I know we couldn’t have known, not really, but this explains so much. I’m not even human! Well, I mean, I am I think?, but I’m not in my dreams. There were so many of us—elves, that is. It was an important gathering of some kind, and it was all very exciting. I set something on fire, too! With my hands! Does anyone keep a diary to record everything they remember? I should really find those scented highlighters.

Oh! We share something about ourselves here, right? I’m a Cryptozoologist. You should visit me at my office! It’s cramped, really, and a mess right now, but I like visitors. If you let me know you’re coming, I could bake something, too. One of my roommates is a chemist, and our kitchen is probably contaminated. You know what! I’ll just buy cookies for us. Would that be all right? Does anyone have any food allergies? This is too long. You’re rambling now, Merrill.

I’ll just be on Tumblr if you need me.

A snow storm in Southern California. It's happened before, though not in the late Spring. Today I'm reliving some happy memories ...and I'm glad I can finally think of them as happy.

This morning I found, what I assume, is a baby raccoon, in the yard of one of our clients. I've found baby birds that had fallen out of nests before, but never baby raccoons. It seems kind of out of it and there were no other raccoons around, so I took it with me. I'm not really sure what to do with it now though.

Right, lovies, let's have a roll call please.

If you know a Hawke or think you might have known a Hawke, and you know this Hawke, or some other Hawke, please do check in let me know if you're:

A: Still you and remember me.
B: Not still you and remember some other me.
C: Not still you at all, in which case, I'm not sure you'd know to post here.

Do NOT post if:

D: You know a Hawke that owes you money.

I'm not that Hawke, ever.

I've realized that when I wear certain hats, a knit for example, I look far too much like a hipster. An old hipster. At what point did wearing a beard become a fashion statement of that sort? Almost makes me want to shave mine off... not really, of course. But I don't enjoy shopping--never really have--and worrying that I'm accidentally putting together something that looks like a costume.

Fell asleep earlier this afternoon and had another Dream while I napped. I am apparently a pinball wizard - I made my own about rainbows and Liz the lizard helped me. I also sent these kids off on the magic bus on a field trip by themselves while I stayed behind with this kid that disapproves of my field trips.

The kids ended up inside the pinball game and helped me try to make the rainbow complete. They were learning about light and color. Looked fairly dangerous, but also a lot of fun once they finally figured out how it could work. The pinball worked with white light going through a prism and then you had to get the color to bounce off mirrors/similar color items and go into the correct colored eye.

I really should start grading the papers of the actual kids I'm TAing. My Liz is having fun just staring at me while I do. I think she enjoys being here. She's kind of adorable. I also think my roomie, Carlos, is really enjoying her presence.

I made the most amazing Apple Crumble tonight for dessert. God, I love Apple Crumbles. And it's the best time of year for them, too, with so many different varieties of apple in season. If anyone wants the recipe, please feel free to message me here, or stop by the Jackson Family Apple booth at the Farmer's Market. I've got an email sign-up list, and the Orchard sends out recipes, tips and coupons via the internet to our customers.

I promise I won't post too much work stuff on here, I just wanted to share. That Crumble was mighty tasty.

I'm getting very excited for Halloween! Not just because it's an enjoyable holiday, but because my best friend is having a magic show. I haven't been to one of his shows in far too long, I'm very much looking forward to seeing it.

Does anyone have any favourite Halloween movies they could recommend? I feel in the mood to watch something a little scary, to get myself ready for the big day.

These dreams are just charming, aren't they? I must've spent five entire minutes this morning looking for grey hairs, because I'm certain they're going to turn up, especially if this continues.

Three bloody years in one night. Three. I'm going to start getting wrinkles and die an old maid, just like Mother always threatened.

So uh I met this really awesome chick lady woman person at Target, Merrill, and she said that she posts to this really cool community. Figured since I'm new here and all, it might be a good place to say 'hey'.

So uh, 'hey'. I'm Hugo, but everybody calls me Hurley. I just kinda moved here with my mom so yeah. Um, I like scifi stuff (Star Wars hell yeah) and comic books and all sorts of geeky stuff. I kinda won that reality show thing

So yeah. Anybody know a good fried chicken place around here? I mean, besides KFC. I mean some place good.

Okay, I have seen mentions of dreams around here and I'm wondering if the ones I had recently are the same ones everyone was talking about. They were the strangest/most realistic dreams ever.

So, they have to be set in the future or something because I look older and I'm a certified teacher. I have a small classroom of young kids and I wear the craziest outfits you have ever seen. Now, that's all normal and such, but then suddenly it takes a turn when I decide it's time for a field trip. The school bus we ride transforms and we go crazy places. The first dream was a trip into outer space, the second dream was us inside a STUDENT when the bus shrunk and he got swallowed for lunch, and the last dream was inside ANOTHER student while he is fighting a cold.

These kids seem to think it's pretty darn normal and I have to say I'm pretty badass if I'm able to do something like this. The kids manage to learn some really awesome things due to these field trips, but holy crap - completely insane.

I have discovered a hot spring spa in my travels. Which reminds me very much of the baths on Tatooine. I'm doubt I'll be letting them wrap me in mud and cellophane any time soon, but the mineral water is very relaxing.

I'm going to be up for a few hours. Unfortunately. I fell asleep when I got home from work (Bro and SIL didn't need me for babysitting tonight) and dreamed about four years worth of dreams. Mostly Hogwarts stuff. I've finished with school, unless I'm gonna go back and re-live it, and now I'm ready to really get some practice in with my wand.

Gosh, I must sound absolutely insane.

Magic won't hurt the baby, will it?

I appear to be the latest person to be gifted a sword from my dreams. It's actually kind of short to be a sword, but too long to be a dagger. Then again, I'm pretty short in my dreams, so I guess it suits me there. Just not here very well.

Has anyone ever dreamed, and then woken up, and wonder what the hell was wrong with them? I mean...that was it? All that suffering and all that pain and that's what I choose to do? Romantic, perhaps, but also nutters.

I suppose I earned it, and Maker only knows what awaited me on the other side of that Eluvian...

In other news, I’m rather enjoying playing with my staff. It’s long, and it’s very hard, and you should see what comes out of it!

Hello there network. I come to you with yet another request but this one actually doesn't involve you adopting anything or dealing with kittens in any way, shape or form. Unless you wanted them , I mean.

This request involves posing a question and getting your answers based on how you would respond to the situation.

fire and arrests of a sort. Oh and psych wards )

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

Hey, I'm new and my name's Anders.

Can we all take a minute to discuss kittens on the valarnet, here? Kittens are insanely adorable little things with adorably tiny paws and great big eyes and the little noses that twitch and their whiskers and all the fluff...

I might be going a LITTLE thick there, sorry. But so. Kittens. We’ve established that they are adorable. They are also, usually, incredibly cuddly and make the sweetest little cooing sounds besides the meows, or at least the gorgeous litter of maine coons someone dropped off at the office this week. They’re absolutely precious little cooing balls of awesome already, really really laid back, and would be great with kids, old people, students who are allowed to have pets, people in their teens to over a hundred..., busy people, people with time to have a companion who likes to curl up with you, tea drinkers, coffee lovers, anybody who doesn’t have an allergy...

Okay so the point is you really need to come and meet our kittens.

We’re in the situation where we’re not a shelter, and that probably won’t happen for another couple years if we get funding, but people bring their kittens to me all the time, and the overnight stay enclosures for the cats are getting pretty full and I’ve had to start doubling them up so my patients can have the peace they need after surgeries.

The dog area is looking much, much better as far as housing them these days, NOT that I’m saying people should run and drop their puppies off with me either. I’m REALLY not a puppy person, even though dogs can be nice, but I have a lot of kittens, and some older cats all really looking for homes who I DON’T want to have to drive to the shelter if I don’t have to. These guys are perfectly healthy, come with shots, and a bag of the food they’re getting here, and when they’re old enough, I’ll throw in a spay and neuter. I’d take them all back with me if I could, but seeing as that’s kind of not an option, I’m going to turn to all of you.

PLEASE come meet the kitties out at City Lickers in Irvine any time you can, we’re even open Sundays, and maybe think about giving one of those precious little faces a good home?
