is there a social etiquette rule about telling brothers you haven't seen since you were 17 to go do one? i dislike the timing, it's like the world and dreams and everything just took a dump on life.

where can i get a card that conveys 'stay out of my life, i can't deal with you because my dream wife i've never met just died and yesterday i was the size of a building' without going to an asylum?

So apparently I need to have a talk with my employees about what I do and don’t want texts about. I know some of them are on here so they can skip the meeting by seeing this, and because they aren’t the ones doing this anyway. Sad when the younger ones got more sense than some of the guys and girls my age. Or hell older even. Those of you who don’t work for me might be able to make use of these guidelines too so here goes:

Do text me:
1)You’re going to be late.
2)You’re sick and not coming in.
3)Family emergency and not coming in.
4)You’re picking up someone’s shift.
5)Someone else is picking up your shift.
6)You can work a weekend/holiday after all.
7)You want extra hours

Don’t text me:
1)You’re horny.
2)You’re high.
3)You want to get high
4)You’d suck a dick to get high - yes that is one I got
5The other manager ‘cussed you out’ - we have audio on our cameras and I do check those recording so I’ll know what got said by both sides
6)That you think one of your coworkers is hot.
7)That you want to borrow money for drugs

Seems a lot of my dreams so far have been about training. First combat, then gun/memory and now a simulations training to see what my team of idiots has learned if anything.

Mitch is smart but gets his emotions in the way it seems. Get your shit together kid before you get killed.

The news showed some shooting, apparently, it was enough to make me pause it on my screen and have the picture of the shooter sent to my phone. Not sure who he is, but I got a bad feeling.

Went home with a couple of the waitstaff instead.

That's the last time I'm going to try to grab a nap in the office when I get there early. If I'm going to have one of these damn Dreams I'd rather have it in my bed. I'm not going to fall off that like I did the couch. As if figuring out that I'm not any better at making smart decisions about where to live there than I am here wasn't enough of a bruise to my pride. As if knowing that shapeshifters are a thing there isn't enough - vampires are real there too and actually come out a couple years before I move to Bon Temps which is really close to one of the main places they're living in the South. At least here I can say that I didn't know about the crazy before moving so that has to count for something right?

Use your brains people. You don't like your boss? That's fine. You want to bitch about them? Go right the fuck ahead. I've been there. I've done that. But don't go bitching about me or the day manager to our customers while you're on my clock. That won't get you sent home just for the night. That'll get you sent home and taken off my schedule permanently. I'm not joking. But that assholes loss is someone's opportunity. I'm looking for another bartender or two for mostly nights at Fangtasia. Professional experience preferred and you got to be willing to work some weekends but I try to rotate it among everybody so that no one is stuck working every weekend. Bonus points in the hire you column if you can handle yourself in the event of shit getting bad while I'm back in the office or busy and not able to give a hand.

I'd almost forgotten what civilian life was like but now that I'm back it's taking a lot more adjusting than I initially thought it would be but the head doctor over at the VA clinic says that's to be expected.

Doesn't make it any easier though because well no offence doc but unless you've been abroad fighting for your country then you have zero idea what it means to go from that to this.

We're not exactly seeing eye to eye because he wants me to talk and I really don't want to because what good is talking, exactly? Doesn't change anything. Shit still happened, people still died, and I'm still here trying to survive that.

Not always easy but no point bitching about it.

I'm going to just go ahead and try to get ahead of as many people as I can who are going to ask this - no margaritas are not half off at Fangtasia in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Please do not come in and bother my bartenders to give you a discount for the holiday. I really don't want to have to toss anybody out on their ass tonight if I don't have to.

Even in my Dreams I can't get away from working in bars apparently. Although instead of being a manager for Eric there I own my own place in that little town I moved to. Named Merlotte's because I apparently don't have much more imagination there than I do here.

And we come to that time of year again where Employees are asking to take the day off for a Marvel movie instead of, you know, doing their job. The number of last-minute "oh, by the way, can I have this day off" requests is insane.

Hey, it's me again. Your guy, Tony Stark. I have to stick the name on there because everyone on here is always all 'who are you again?'. Seriously, youtube search me, you'll even get videos with my clothes off. If you're into that.

So I need a person. I had a person, but she did such a great job that she got a promotion. Now it's your turn! General you. The person has to be able to handle things like: Kicking one night stands out of my apartment if I end up too busy to see them out, remembering important details like my birth date and my social security number, buying stuff when I need it, procuring me rare art, and being available for random trips to places at that last minute. Plus, I'll probably text you at 3am at least a zillion times. Very importantly, I've been told it's like babysitting. So someone with enough of a spine to tell a guy like me "Tony, No, it's 4am, get pizza at a normal time of night" is uniquely qualified to professionally babysit one Tony Stark.

There's awesome benefits and compensation for being forced to work for such a gigantic asshole as me. Hit me up.

On another note? I'm totally Iron Man, apparently. Like, super hero gig stuff. And Pop Tarts? You're on my naughty list.

I should be glad that the Dreams didn’t force me to live through another shift, my muscles are sore just thinking about it, but could somebody tell me where the hell Bon Temps Louisiana is? I tried to look it up on a map but I couldn’t find it. Not where it’s supposed to be at least.

There's no reason to wake up before noon. Unless it's for breakfast cake. I endorse breakfast cake. It's been a good weekend. Space ice cream, friends, breakfast cake. I'm a very healthy human clearly. Don't you judge me, I see you over there with your muffin that's basically cake anyway.

Thank you all for spending it with me. I guess birthdays aren't satan after all.

As this is St. Patrick’s Day weekend and as a bartender, please drink responsibly. I will not hesitate to kick people out of The Nightcrawler for being drunk and disorderly. And please don’t drink and drive. Hopefully everyone has a safe weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all who are celebrating, even if you aren’t Irish.

I should be doing homework for my classes. And instead? I'm watching a grown woman on youtube bathe in a gigantic bag of tea while she answers questions from her fans. What is even my life?

So in my dreams apparently high school theater is so cut-throat that an understudy attempted to drug the lead so she could take over the role. I may have discovered Victoria was trying to drug Rachel's tea so I switched the cups when Victoria wasn't looking and oops she drugged herself. Serves her right for being a stuck up bitch and trying underhanded means of getting the lead role in The Tempest.

I'm now getting annoyed by these stupid dreams because they are literally just like my real life with like, a couple minor changes. No dragons or magic or anything like that. Just the same bullshit I lived through here. What's even the point of these stupid dreams if they're just the same as what I lived through here?

I'm trying really hard not to be that boss at Fangtasia. But when you show up to bartend for me and you're ass is hanging out of the holes in your shorts ladies? I'm sending you home for the night because I'm not dealing with that headache of you getting offended by the shit some of the guys that come in are going to say.

[Stiles]

I know you're not on the schedule for tomorrow but can you come in for a couple hours to train on the bar? I got a feeling we're going to need somebody to fill in up there more.

I really have to say, I thought it was a California thing with all these talk of dreams. More liberal, more hippy dippy, that sort of free love and openness thing.

I can even get along with the surprise room mate for a while.

But this Iron Curtain espionage thing is a little bit out there, even for me.

It's rather fascinating how the Sith Empire functions. Or rather, does not. The rank and file serve in constant fear of some idiotic order from their so-called superior and there is constant backstabbing and mistreatment. I've made incredible inroads simply by not murdering people when they make a mistake as my peers are wont to do.

It's much more effective to sway them to my side with mercy, to treat them as they ought to be treated. It is the right thing to do, but in the context of the Empire I suppose it is also a matter of my own survival. One must build a power base if they've any hope to survive, let alone thrive.

My dream self has come to the simple conclusion that if the Empire is to survive as well, there must be drastic change. The Republic is at our throats, and we are always watching our backs.

To this end, I have befriended an agent of Imperial Intelligence. A rather attractive Chiss woman, which is a nice bonus.

Entertainingly, I now have my own cult on Nar Shadda, left in the hands of two people I spared to gain their loyalty after I retrieved an artifact there.

There was one other thing of interest on that Hutt-infested planet. What was called an 'infinite' engine. This device could manipulate energy and matter, and create almost anything that was desired. Food. Water. Weapons.

Scientists have found a new moon orbiting Neptune, and it's name is pretty damn adorable. Hippocamp after a sea creature from Greek mythology.


It's so tiny even Hubble missed it. Graphs!

It could enable the discovery of other moons and 'exoplanets' outside the solar system - some of which could harbour life.


That would be so cool. By the by did Oppy ever get rescued?

I've been forced to think about light versus dark as a metaphor for good versus evil for the last infinite number of weeks.

And you know what? That metaphor is bullshit.

You know what lasers are made of? Fucking light, that's what.

You know what would destroy everything on earth if it wasn't for the ozone layer? Fucking light from the sun, that's what!

Light is not inherently synonymous with happy good friend feelings. I hate this metaphor.

Another complaint for thought.

It's so strange being back in the house I grew up in. I mean, I've been back here to see Elena, of course, but now I'm living here again and it's just so strange. Dragon is also getting used to living in a new house. I can tell that he's still trying to find Myrcella, but he's also taking to Elena and Katherine pretty well, which is good cause it's made this whole move easier on him.

Thank the Gods that Valentine's day is over. The salon was so utterly jam packed with people they even had me washing hair. Spoiler alert: I'm terrible at it.

Instead of going out, I decided to spend the night with Henry Tilney in Northanger Abbey. Who doesn't love a man with a sharp wit and exceptional taste in muslins?

So who is your favorite Austen hero? Or couple, whatever, and why?

Alright - Fangtasia regulars might already have gotten wind of it but Eric decided to head back to Louisiana to oversee the idiots club there after hearing what was going on there so if you come down you won't see him sorry ladies. But you'll get to see me not stuck behind the bar all night since he made me one of the managers - my sleep schedules already used to working nights and sleeping days so try not to give me any headaches while I'm getting a hang of everything alright?

And anybody looking for a job that has bartending skills - we're looking for a new one.

Of course, there do need to be a few concessions. Can anyone direct me to some bars/clubs/restaurants that are particularly appealing? Have to make sure the social life doesn't suffer in the move, of course.

One thing I definitely don’t miss about Louisiana - the phone calls to bail my brother out of jail after whatever stupid crap he pulls. Now I just hear about them from our parents and my only responsibility is to reassure them that they weren't shit parents and that’s not why he does this crap. Although I got to admit this years stunt was pretty funny. He and his best friend got bear costumes and then went to Best Buy to “wreck the campsites of all the people camped in front of Best Buy in advance of Black Friday.”

The last few weeks have certainly been interesting, to say the least. Since it's not a secret, in my dreams, I don't see why it needs to be a secret to anyone here. Especially considering the number of vampires on this community. As of Halloween, I too have become a vampire. Not to worry, I've had help from someone else in this community and I have no need to snack on any locals or customers.

The good thing about being from a time zone that is two hours behind local time is that I can use those “extra hours” to completely finish unpacking and decorating my apartment.

The bad thing is that I lose some sleep cause I’m trying to wake up at a normal time here.

Whatever is going on, I wish it would stop. The microwave keeps burning my food to a crisp. I can't text on my phone because it either makes the text backward, upside down or deletes whatever I wrote whenever I push send. The fridge keeps spitting ice out at me every time I go into the kitchen. And I swear my PS4 is laughing at me everytime I fuck up in a game.
