Sooooooo... Dreams.

Usually, I get the same ones, but they have advanced a bit, and as I thought, I'm up in the sky alone. I lost my bothers in the sea, although it looks like they lived. Now it's just me and I'm not sure how much gas I have, so what do I do? I head my ass into a dogfight to get rid of the enemy so all the boys stuck on the beach can get away in the boats. I haven't seen the entire beach, but I'm staying out at sea. Looks like the ocean and I will meet soon.

I did find this tool set on my coffee table this morning. I have had to make some repairs on planes from time to time. It makes me wonder what I'm going to be doing. Maybe I do get to land after all, but I'm fixing something. I'd be a little happier if they were really useful, but they are from the 1940's and technology isn't quite the same. They also look like they are pretty beat up, but I'm cleaning them.

Since I couldn't have an over the top party on my actual birthday last month due to unexpected company over that week - I'm going to have a late party for it this weekend at my house. Show up any time starting after 5 pm Friday and stay for as long as you want. Or until I have to throw everyone out Monday to get ready for a meeting with a director at my house. They better be offering me the part or I will end up in trouble that I'm fairly certain an entire law firm and Amycus couldn't get me out of and cover up

Ah crap, there goes my New Year's Resolution. Who was betting on pet food?

I couldn't help myself. I just had to kill something.

I think this is the closest The Mysterious They who keep track of these things have come to suggesting Millennials are killing off babies.

I still can't believe how many Starbucks you have. I'm pretty sure I saw them building a Starbucks across the street from another Starbucks. I like coffee, but I mean why.

There's this brilliant sport in my Dreams called Quiddich, where the general gist of it is that you fly around on broomsticks, attempt to dodge the bludgers, score with the quaffle, and attempt to catch the snitch. Dead simple. I'm a Chaser in the dreams - so one of the blokes who attempts to score with the quaffle.

Anyway, I was driving past the park today, and imagine my surprise when I saw a bunch of muggles running around throwing balls at one another with broomsticks between their legs. Apparently there is a muggle version of Quidditch. I had no idea this existed! My Dream self sure didn't know about Quidditch, though I suppose he doesn't spend much time with muggles. Though, you'd think that some of the muggle-borns would have mentioned it. Maybe they were just embarrassed since it doesn't hold a candle to wizard Quidditch.

Still fun though.

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.

I forgot I'd made plans for tomorrow all the way back in October. Guess a certain amount of planning ahead doesn't always work out.

But I think I've got an idea.

There's a reservation for two at swanky restaurant up for grabs under my name. I'll cover the bill and everything.

All you have to do is tell me something really embarrassing or funny about your paramour. But nothing mean or nasty or that they would get upset about, of course.

I'll give the reservation to my favorite story.

I generally don’t say anything about politics because for the most part it’s incredibly boring and why do I want to do anything that I know is just going to bore me? But this government shutdown is something that I just can’t keep quiet about. Because honestly - how do you not comment on an overgrown toddler who’s temper tantrum is affecting an entire country?

Happy New Year!

Finally, after a long back and forth of business negotiations - without cheating the system - I'm happy to announce that our bid for a bit of Vegas has been expected, and should be open by spring break. Now the real work begins.

Who is down to celebrate?

If you love musicals, 80s nostalgia, or just don't have any plans for Saturday night, you should come to Chapman University's opening night of Heathers this weekend to see Alice Liddell and I perform! Everyone has been working really hard on this, and I really can't wait for it to finally pay off. Everyone is absolutely amazing in their role. (I might have started crying in dress rehearsal for Seventeen Reprise)

On a completely unrelated note, if you wanted to smuggle an outfit home that technically WAS made to fit you, but is university property, how would you go about that?

Alright, so I'm settled into an apartment (thank you again, Clara, it's much appreciated!), and I even managed to land a job all before Thanksgiving. Go me! Or something. So now it's back to attempting to be a responsible adult and all of that. Which is boring, if you ask me, but a girl's gotta make a living. And at some point I gotta stop running

I'd consider throwing a house warming party, but I only know like, five people here. That's not much of a party scene so much as a friendly dinner.

The Swiss, of course, do not generally celebrate your American Thanksgiving, but it looks so exciting in all the stores right now! Brown sugar and cranberries, stuffing, turkeys, all different kinds of root vegetables and squashes...

Now, I may be in the minority here, but I need Thanksgiving to pass before we start Christmas music and bell ringing, and holly jolly days. I'm not holly or jolly, but stop, alright. Pretty soon it's going to start in July and I am going to tear something apart - possibly something in a red suit passing out my bag of coal.

I'm Scrooging it up over here. I know.

To all those who are interested in celebrating Guy Fawkes Night, Thomas has graciously offered his home as the setting of the party. Food, drinks, and games will be provided, but feel free to bring things to share as well!

[Insert specifics like address, time, etc, here]

Everyone is welcome, even if you aren't English. I look forward to seeing you all there! I wish Jacob was here for this

Remember, remember!

I could have lived with my television going screwy. Or even my phone acting up. But my hot tub? Really? All I wanted to do was relax for a bit but no - that was too much to ask of this place. Unless you happen to find boiling hot water relaxing. Lucky for me I thought to check before climbing in or I could have ended up with some really nasty burns and an awkward hospital run.

The light flickering in the studio off and on all day has given me a massive headache.

Every time I tried to use the calculator if keep defaulting to 8008.

I tried to turn on the tv at home, but the radio came on, very loudly.


I'm just annoyed, hurting, and going to unplug for the rest of the night.

Is it just me or this the most Monday-ist of Mondays?

My computer decided to go haywire this morning and started opening windows and programs all by itself. It even started writing a bunch of gibberish on a Word Document before I managed to turn the thing off. I was pretty close to just saying Not Today, Satan and throwing it at the wall - I've seen how this horror movie goes.

I just hope to god the coffee maker doesn't go crazy.

The lights have been flickering all night at Fangtasia and when I attempt to call an electrician to come look at it, I get different numbers. The sound system also occasionally switches songs mid way through. If this keeps up, I'll have to close early and that's the last thing I want to do.

Being English, I always celebrated Guy Fawkes Night moreso than Halloween. I'm curious, would any fellow Brits, or anyone else here, be interested in a Guy Fawkes Night celebration? There may not be a life-sized effigy of Guy Fawkes to burn, but there will at least be a smaller one. Food and so forth will also be provided if anyone is interested in coming.

For those who don't know, Guy Fawkes Night is November 5th.

I heard about this story the other day. It makes me worried that someone will try and take Lion away from me. Not that our situations are the same but you never know: Lion Cub Found...

At least, Lion can return on his own if someone ever takes him.

In other news, I've been rehearsing to perform at Pandemonium's opening night. Costume and everything...my dad is letting me "borrow" his band for the performance.

Animatronic dragon skeletons have joined our posable skeleton on the balcony. Nico does Halloween the way most people do Christmas. He’s also named them, but I really can’t remember all four of them. I’m almost curious what kind of decorating he plans on doing when we’re both finished with school and get a house one day.

I think he’s already got our dogs’ costumes planned out this year, but I keep sending him pictures I’ve found online. I can’t believe that this got vetoed.

Well, thankfully all of that was over before I got the call asking me if I was interested in doing Rocky Horror again this year. It’s going to be at [Theater] on [address] the Friday before Halloween this year. If anyone is interested, they’re still looking for actors for the shadow cast! So anyone want to come do the Time Warp again?

In other news, I have an audition coming up for our school's performance of Heathers. Wish me luck, I'm trying out for Heather M.

I’m actually not sure whether to be amused or pissed off. I got a cease and desist letter from my father’s attorney today. Apparently my career and lifestyle choices are “damaging his family name and livelihood”.

According to my attorney what the old bastard wants is for me to either change my name professionally - which is not happening and he can go fuck himself - or quit being so open about my sex life. Which if any of you were worried I can assure you isn’t happening either. And in the interest of putting everyone’s minds at ease on that front - I’m throwing a pool party at my house. Everyone is more than welcome to come, however you want to take that, to help me break in the new pool house that was designed by the extremely talented and lovely Elsa.

[Sigrun]
If he was going to be a dick over the name he should have said something when I first started out. Not that I would have changed my mind about using his name I’m giving you the night off. Come and have fun but no bodyguard business. Or cockblocking.

[Elsa]
You couldn’t be convinced to take on another job for me could you? Now that the pool house is done, I’m thinking an actual guest house could be nice and I have the acreage for it after all.

My Dream this time starts with me waking up. Weird, I know. My mom was trying to wake me up so she could have my sheets to clean, and I tried begging her to let me sleep in. Because it was tiring to be in middle school and ... here is where I almost outed myself as Sailor V, a super hero. Luckily Artemis smacked me and told me I was supposed to keep that secret before I could finish getting the sentence out. I mean, not that my parents would actually believe me about that.

I go to hang out with my friends, after letting my pen do my homework for me (take that, talking cat), and one of them has a radio he’s used to sort of… hack radio station signals? So we can listen to concerts without actually being at the concerts. He said it picks up the signals from their wireless microphones. I’m sure it’s super illegal, and I really have no idea if this is something that would even work here. My dreams seem to take place a long time ago. The singer we’re listening to is called Petit Pandora. Which… the singer who turned out to be a monster in my last dream was named Pandora, also. So, that bodes well. She even looks like a younger version of her.

A letter to challenge me is given to the police. I’m not affiliated with the police, they don’t even particularly like me because a masked 13 year old putting robbers you can’t catch in jail for you has to bruise the ego. But she leaves a letter with them all the same, which the friend with the radio picks up on, also tapping into the police radio I guess. She’s apparently behind the disappearances of all the teenage boys in the area.

I go to where she says to meet her, only to find the place swarming with cops. So clearly the only sensible thing to do is use my magic compact (wasn’t it the pen before? How do I rewind and review my dreams) to also turn into an idol singer. I have to say, I made a pretty cute boy. I make my way past all the cops and try to be a distraction for the girl. She falls for it, and also falls off the perch she was waiting on. (A swing hanging from a blimp? This is Doctor Evil levels of ridiculousness. I demand better super villains.) I use my pen to transform into Sailor V and introduce myself.

Petite Pandora flips out on me, saying she’s here to get revenge for her sister. Otherwise known as the ham zombie from my last dream. She sics the boys she kidnapped on me, and once again I’m trying to kick and punch them away. It’s not their fault they got brainwashed by an evil pop singer. I use my compact on her and her face starts to melt away, just as her sister’s did. Revealing another zombie with pineapple slices on its face. Unlike her sister, as she melts, she starts emitting a toxic gas. I somehow call on the power of Venus to shower purifying light on the entire area. It kills the zombie while clearing away the fumes.

And that’s where I woke up.

Oh I definitely didn't see this coming with all those gigantic meteors falling from the sky that looked vaguely reminiscent of Infernals. I'm not about trying to stab gigantic rock demons, especially with my roommate so laid up that she can't join in on the fun.

But I don't think it's going to shock anyone when I state that those demons with the six arms are amazing. Also? A succubus can charm your panties right off of you.
