I was in Autozone picking up some parts for a job and I literally had a man try to explain spark plugs to me.

For those of you not car savvy, that's a bit like explaining what a keyboard is to a computer geek.

I'm just... and he wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise, I was about ready to hit him!

Ah, isn't this the perfect season to be here in your United States! Even though this warm area of California has nothing to do with warm apple cider or pumpkins... nor is it really spooky enough looking for witches and spiders and scary things. Still! Your Starbucks has all of the pumpkin spice coffee and for the first time I actually get to enjoy it instead of reading about it on the social media sites.

It is delicious, I may have spent half a monthly salary on stocking up. Who decided this was not an appropriate flavor for coffee? Verdammt, have you ever had the pleasure of drinking the coffee at an aid station? Along the front lines? Or honestly even just the so-called coffee they often cook up in hospital break rooms? You should be so lucky that there is flavor at all in any of those - or that you can drink them instead of chewing on them.

I think I will take all of this pumpkin spice that you may not want, Orange County. Send them to my flat, care of Dr. Ziegler. I am kidding, of course, I know better than to put my address here on the internet. At least not until I set up a real place of business.

We never really celebrated Halloween when I was growing up. It's more of an American thing.

But I have the strangest urge to decorate the Falcon this year.

Maybe paint her orange.

Tony has the COOLEST STUFF EVER. He has this super secret lab with all this cool stuff in it and an iron suit and there's a ship from Wakanda! I want to fly it but he said I can't because I'm too little. That's okay, i found these super cool gloves and I can go wherever I want! I went to a park and then a bakery but I didn't mean to but I wanted cookies. I also went to DISNEYLAND ALL BY MYSELF!

OOC: He popped into Baxters at random then disappeared a few minutes later. Anyone is welcome to have seen or talked to him lol

More dreams. Seems like I followed in my mom's footsteps and became a pilot too.

I have to admit flying planes after dreaming of flying spaceships isn't quite as exciting ;)

I've heard this is the best, and generally secure means to getting in touch with the local community, which is not something I've done so much in the past. I'm Leia Organa, and I've recently moved to the area.

I'm involved with the Legal Aid Office in Santa Ana, and the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law. They've both got a pretty healthy social media presence already, but I thought it might be another way to reach out.

I've heard that also .. using this network is, just the done thing around here.

It’s definitely a little strange

Well, shit. I went to check in on how my ship was doing, as someone had offered a while back to put it together for me, and I find she's up and gone and my ship's still mostly in pieces, abandoned.

I don't know where or how I'm gonna move all this and sure and hell don't know how to assemble this big ass jigsaw puzzle.

Man, being friends with Mulan is TOUGH! I mean, everyone wants her autograph, she always has to have the perfect smile for pictures...it's been HOT too! I hope that girl gets some well deserved time off!

But seriously, I know it's the summer and Southern California, but DOES IT HAVE TO BE SO HOT? I'll be someone's best friend if I can borrow their pool.

I mean, he just got here and hasn't had any dreams yet and I don't want to scare the guy off. I already hugged the dude before realizing he didn't know who I was.

Time jumps in Dreams are kinda crazy. I was just being elected Queen and now here I'm sitting with a war starting to brew. It reminds me a lot of the political climate we have in this world right now though. There's a Trade Federation that's have a trade route dispute with the Galactic Republic and they've decided my planet is the one they need to have a blockade around.

A lot of disagreements and then those jerks decided to invade my planet! They tried to kidnap me, but I had one of my handmaidens step in as a decoy queen before some Jedi Knights appeared to help us escape the planet. I'm currently still pretending to be just a handmaiden on this trip and it's definitely a motely crew. There's an adorable astromech called R2D2 and an odd Gungan called Jar Jar Binks and we're on our way to some planet called Tatooine.

It occurred to me. I'm such an idiot. Here I am, with a robotic prosthetic arm, and I'm doing nothing but learning how to use it, or get used to it. Depends on which physical therapist I see during my session... Or what I remember from session.

The point is, I should be doing more with it.

New plan: installing motion activated, audio chips that play machine and hydraulic noises when I move my arm and the joints of my hand.

Best plan, I've already thought it out. It's gonna work. My coworkers will love me!

My dreams are filled with visions, lies, and half truths. It's so hard to pick out what to believe, or where the truth actually is.

I had another dream. I’m working as a host in that club to pay off my debt, and they are going to be hosting a dance party. Which I know absolutely nothing about dancing so… that’s fun. One of Tamaki’s regulars comes in and decides that I’m her new favorite, something he doesn’t seem that happy about. But she has offered to teach me how to dance and I’ve been threatened to being demoted back to errand boy if I don’t take her up on it. Mixed signals, Tama, mixed signals. I can’t not steal your client and also steal her?

I’m honestly not sure why she’s coming to the host club to start with, because she seems to have a crush on another boy, and even though she hasn’t told him and they’re still in high school, they’re somehow engaged. I have to be honest, I’m confused both here and in my dreams. Is that a rich person thing or are they just weird? The two of them in particular, I mean?

It turns out that her not-boyfriend is going to college abroad, so we have to get them to admit their feelings for each other before he leaves. Because that’s a normal thing in this school? And for that to work I have to dress up like a girl. And pretend to have a crush on him to get him to admit how he feels where she can listen, or at least to get her to feel jealous and admit how she feels. I’m not really all that enthused with the plan, but I was bribed with sushi. Because I fully admit that my stomach is my weak spot.

She catches us together and runs off, and he runs after her, catching her right at the spotlight dance and they finally admit how they feel. She’s named Queen of the Ball, and she’s supposed to get a kiss on the cheek from Tamaki, only I get roped in as his replacement. After all the makeup is scrubbed off and I’ve changed back into the suit I borrowed. Because it would be really weird for me to “confess my love” to one of them in one disguise and kiss the other on the cheek in the same disguise.

Somehow I get pushed and accidently kiss her on the lips, so my first kiss in the dream world is to someone that’s engaged to someone else.

I just hope they gave me plenty of sushi to make this worth it.

Anybody else ever wake up in the morning and the only thing running through your head is “Shit I need a drink after that dream?” I dreamt about someone I don’t even know in this life dying in a fire while I had to hold their brother back on the sidewalk to keep them from running inside. Because apparently he was my best friend? Even just writing it here is making my head hurt trying to figure it out.

I would like to point out that, for the record, not only am I objectively a great driver, I know how to drive in the snow. Oregon is not California; a measly dusting like what we have here is not enough of a reason to give up and stay home. That being said, black ice should not be underestimated.

I suppose I ought to introduce myself on here. My name is Mary Crawley.

I must say, I don't think I was expecting such a large community. Dreams aren't something that I would normally talk about with other people, but the one that I had was so vivid that I felt compelled to do some research on the internet and ended coming across this site.

Has anyone else dreamed that they were from a completely different time period?

My dreams decided to give me several items all at once. I somehow think my girlfriend is more excited about this than I am, and I am rather excited to have my armor and weapons!

But against my mother's wishes, I left Themyscira with Steve Trevor, a man I saved from drowning. He spoke of a great war were thousands of people were dying and there were weapons like no one had ever seen before. With my knowledge of this world, it was World War I he spoke of, and we arrived in London so he could take me to the war where I could confront Ares.

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.
