I am thinking of hosting a small dinner party for a few of my associates, in honour of Valentine's Day, and because I haven't hosted a party in far too long.

My mind went immediately to serving seared beef heart, or perhaps a tartar, but I wondered if that might not be a tad cliché.

So I will present the question to the general public: would serving heart for a Valentine's dinner party be too much?

You'd think that the holiday season would be quieter work wise but instead I've spent even more time working than I normally do.

Someone commented that they found it surprising that I could actually find time to work even more than I currently do.

I forgot what college classes were like. Kinda fun, actually, following Caroline around UCI today. (Thanks to my Sister-in-Law for watching Christina while I did.) Kinda thinking maybe I should go back to school. I've got some money saved up, and I get a monthly check from Christina's father to help cover her expenses... it seems like something I should do.

But what would I study? I have no idea.

A well-known search engine led me to believe that this community might be a good place to search for fellow Canadians abroad in the Orange County area.

If that is not the case, I am sorry, and you should feel free to stop reading and continue on with your lives.

If there are, in fact, other Canadians living in Orange County:

Greetings. My name is Benton Fraser, and I recently moved to the area when I accepted a position at Occidental.

I was surprised to learn that Southern California is home to a curling league, which, although they do not have their own dedicated ice, seems to be quite enthusiastic. Unfortunately their 10-week and 5-week leagues are full, but there is a pick up game this Sunday, if any other curling enthusiasts are interested in joining me.

I had thought just disrupted sleep was the extent of my involvement in the strangeness this last weekend but then when I got to my office the department head wanted a word about the state of it.

So I had my first dreams last night. Supposedly I was married at some time and Atlantis is real.

I have to say it was interesting, I would love to do the work I was doing in my dreams, it seemed absolutely fascinating.

Elizabeth
So did you know that you were my boss at some point in this dreams?

Sam
So I'm dreaming of the Stargate. You were amazing in that dream. Is that what you're dreams are of?

So apparently "to see aliens in your dream signifies that you are having difficulties adapting and adjusting to your new surroundings. You are feeling 'alienated' and disconnected."

Or I've just been watching too many paranormal reruns before bed.

Either way, my name's Siri. I guess I'm not going to get a more glaring sign to try to be social. Suppose this is the place to do it, yeah? Anyone else having crazy dreams?

I think I'm gonna see about signing up for a few summer classes at one of the local community colleges. I have the money now, so there's no long a question of where I'm gonna get the money. The only question is, what do I wanna do? I got my GED so that I could go to college so I might as well do it now. If I put it off any longer then I won't do it.

I fully understand why Jim took the ship on his adventure. If I'd had the Dreams that I had last night before he left, I might have been more convinced to go with him.

Now I'm just waiting for the next set. Seems the current predicament in my Dreams has resolved... does anyone else feel this way? That these Dreams are episodic?

Apparently, in my dreams, when I get a lot of energy it turns my hair yellow and I'm something called a Super Saiyan! And I can kick some serious butt.

I've GOT to learn how to do that. Maybe I should master flying, first. Seems a bit contradictory to be able to do something that powerful and not know something like flying.

Anyway, those are my most recent dreams. Anyone a scientist here? Seems like I did a lot of my training in high gravity or something. Seemed to work pretty well, too.

[Jace Lightwood]

Hey, there! So just say the word and I'm ready for training with your friends and such. Might be good to say hi to them too before hand and all.

The alien technology in my dreams is rather incredible and it seriously makes me wish I were receiving things from my dreams like others are.

My physics teacher just told me that if I don't bring my grade up then I'm gonna fail and have to take the class over in the summer, which means I won't get to graduate in the spring. So, I need some help. Anyone out there good at physics and want to help me? I guess this is what I get for skipping so much.

Also, Elena and I are talking about selling our house and getting an apartment or something smaller with the money from the sale. She said she knows someone who might be interested, but I know we can't just hand over the keys and stuff. So, I figured I'd see if anyone knows anything about selling a house.

We're having a boy. No idea what to name him though.

I'm actually really surprised that I didn't somehow turn into one of my other selves. I thought for sure that would happen when I saw it happen to other people. I have too many faces to choose from I guess. Okay not as many as the Doctor but still.

Speaking of which, in my dreams we've picked up a boy named Adric. It's odd having someone else in the TARDIS, but he's a cute kid for the most part.

I'm excited to be going somewhere chilly for Christmas. I haven't spent Christmas in such a warm climate in a very long time, I think it would feel strange to have a Christmas without snow.

What about you Californians, how do you get into the spirit when it's seventy degrees out?

I've never been a person to make a big deal about Thanksgiving due to not being around my family for the holidays quite often once I left after high school. But, I do admit I love the food that is involved with this dinner. Typically our band would just stop off at some random restaurant that was open on our way to the next tour stop (if we were touring then) and hope they had turkey or something. I will admit that Chinese food on Thanksgiving is still one of my favorite things to do because of that. But I think I may make a quick trip back home to see my family and then perhaps go out again for Christmas.

But, I've been mostly focused on exams and trying to figure out the perfect Christmas gifts. I've also been addicted to BuzzFeed, as per usual, and today they posted this LIST of science gifts and I really want some of the stuff on there. I guess I should look on Etsy and maybe ThinkGeek - my family might appreciate some nerdy gifts for Christmas.

Today I was asked to pass a particular student, regardless of his performance in the lab, because his great-grandfather donated a large enough sum to have his name engraved on the chemistry department building. Many decades ago.

Allora. Valarnet, please consider this my call for patients. While most of my time is taken up by my work at UCLA, I do see patients three days a week. It is a welcome respite from my clinical duties.

The only stumbling block for some is that I cannot prescribe. Under your laws, only psychiatrists may give medicines, while I am a psychologist. If this does not trouble you, and you wish for someone to talk to, please contact me.

Filming on my latest movie is rapidly moving forward. We've shot in Prague, London, and in Death Valley. One more trip afar looms next month, to Tokyo, then it's back here to Orange County to shoot the rest of the scenes. It's weird filming a fictionalized version of part of my own life. And weirder yet knowing that the science fiction put in it is not even close to how crazy the real events were.

I've procured a sample of this "husk" and have been running tests to see if there's anything that I can create in the laboratory as an effective weapon against them. I'm afraid that I'm not coming up with as many solutions as I'd like, considering I've never dealt with anything like this before. Though, I have some theories.

If there are others who know more about these creatures than I do, Please contact me to discuss my findings.

Well hello there, social forum of the internet. I have been told of you by one or two of my intelligent students and informed that I might find you interesting. So I decided, why not? I shall give it a shot and see how it goes. At the very least I might stay in touch with those few students who shared you with me and decide whether or not I should fail them next year for doing so.

My name is Daniel Murphy, and I will answer to either. I am a professor of Literature at one of your fine, American universities. Until last year I spent the last eleven years traveling the world and studying the stories of each culture I encountered. Now I get to try and share that interest and knowledge with the minds of our youth, which is no small feat.

I suppose that's enough information for the moment. I'm sure it will be a pleasure meeting you all.

So shoot me some ideas and the like and I'll go from there :-D

I've been having terrible migraines of late. I'm probably just working too hard, but I feel on the edge of discovering something and don't want to stop.

Between work in the clinic and work at home, I can't remember the last time I've had a good night's sleep.

If I start seeing spots, I'll take a break. I swear it.
