Seeing as how Thanksgiving isn't exactly a holiday I've ever celebrated, I'm contemplating spending part of the day at the Children's Home. I'm sure they'll need help and will be happy to have it. Perhaps after Tywin will want to have dinner.

I've decided to stay in tonight. Perhaps that makes me some sort of Halloween-loathing old man, but the truth is I've never enjoyed. Never enjoyed the fireworks, never enjoyed the ridiculous dignity-destroying costumes, never enjoyed children rapping my door at night. The fireworks are particularly loathsome, a series of bright lights that makes idiot stand and gawp like chimps.

Well, I spoke with my dear father regarding certain recent events and was informed that I needed to end my "dalliance" with Katherine or I could forget that I was his son. Apparently he considers my relationship an embarrassment.

It would appear, Nik, that we are now in the same boat.

( Elijah | Katherine )
I do not regret my decision. I love you. And I am not choosing you over my family. I am choosing you over a father who would deny me any shred of happiness.

Now that all is out in the open, I was wondering if you might want to move in with me. If this is rushing things, please do not hesitate to say. I do not want to push you into anything.


( Mikaelsons )
I am still your brother, no matter what our father says. But I could not allow him to control my life moreso than he already did. I love Katherine. Nothing will change that.

Rebekah, I will still be coming to your wedding, obviously. Father will simply have to bite his tongue in that regard if he has a problem with it.

Why must little girls grow up?

Of course, I didn't have her in my life when she was a little girl, she came to me only a few years ago, but in a way that makes me all the more nostalgic for the years I haven't had with her.

It isn't as though I'm losing her completely, of course. But my Abigail is practically a grown woman now, eighteen years old and off at college.

Do other parents feel this way, I wonder?

I debated retiring recently, but then I realized I'd be really very bored. So that's straight out. I could use a few more hobbies, though. Knitting or something.

I find myself lacking motivation of late. Either to do the things I love to do, or to seek out new things to try.

I don't suppose anyone has any suggestions for a hobby?

I have to admit, I do enjoy America. Perhaps it's the....shall we say, diversity....present in the United States. The sane and the insane sit next to each other on the train, albeit the number of insane opinions I heard on the train means I won't be taking it again.

In other news, I was accosted by several youths today. They seemed to assume that my age made me an easy target. I wasn't.

Someone was allowing his dog to relieve himself on my lawn. I assume it's a habit he got into when the house was unoccupied.

I don't think he'll be making that mistake again.

I think the people known as 'paparazzi' might be the lowliest form of life currently existing. Say what you like about serial killers, at least when they're lurking outside your home they have the courtesy to murder you and end the farce. Or perhaps I'm bitter because the young man currently crouching in a car at the end of my street like a wounded badger.

These creatures nest in trees taking photographs of women's underwear, people's day-to-day going-ons, and newborn infants. They would be arrested if they didn't justify themselves as 'giving the public what they want'. Well, the public are idiots. They don't know what they want. The public will want what they're given if they get enough of it.

Well, this crisis has certainly been...interesting. Thankfully it didn't arrive on my doorstep like so many others, and therefore my family is unharmed. Still, it has been a curiosity.

A very misinformed journalist recently wrote about the possibility of my leaving the company I spent so long rebuilding so I can enter politics. The basis for this judgement? A 'donation' I made to a Republican party candidate. It was not a 'donation'. That is not my business.

[OOC: Jaime's mention of the Starks below is in reference to his boss Tony, but could be taken wrong from the ASOIAF Starks because lol]

Considering that Stark's presence on this network has been immense in the last year it only seemed prudent that I check it out as well. My name is Jaime Lannister, son of Tywin Lannister. I've just taken a job at Stark Industries as an accountant, but I hear I should watch my back? Strangeness seems to follow the man wherever he goes.

It’s ostensibly marriage counseling, but really, it’s just an excuse for us to yell at each other with out the kids overhearing. Who knows, maybe the sheer hatred could respark the romance between us that once existed, for such a short while a long time ago.

It’s complete crap, of course. The only passion I feel for Robert is the passion necessary to wring his fat neck. Why any woman would voluntarily share his bed...

I did love him, once. It wasn’t entirely a marriage of convenience. It’s still convenient, at least until Tommen is old enough. Even then, it might be convenient to continue the charade, for awhile longer. It’s not like I lack for lovers. Especially my true love.


The above was deleted as soon as it was written

The counselor suggested I take the children on an extended vacation so I can keep an eye on Jaime so that Robert and I can have a chance to cool down after our latest fight. I suppose this is an intruduction.

I hear the wine country out here is marvelous.

I didn't realize that Mother's Day was different here in America. Back in England, it's in March, and equally as pointless. It's full of half-hearted sentiment and ridiculous statements written on card in four seconds. The same is true of Father's Day. Pointless. Entirely pointless.

Well, perhaps not entirely pointless. Hallmark and the like certainly see the point; it's almost perfect in terms of marketing. Everyone knows it's a trick, but you must participate in the trick or your fellow victims will see you as selfish rather than in full possession of integrity. It's like shaking a man's hand so he can steal your watch.

.....even I sent a card to my daughter. She has children.

Stupid holiday.

And what ridiculous thing is this? The new Facebook? Linkedin?

If it's Twitter, I'm deleting this thing right away. Attention spans are short enough as it is, we don't need to encourage it. Half of my students are incapable of sitting through a lecture as it stands.

My father's here. Why is my father here? It's been ten years since we saw each other, why couldn't he have just stayed in Massachusetts? I settled on the west coast to get away from him.

I know I have obligations here now, but I'm seriously considering moving. I can't live in the same place as that man.

Fuck.

For those of you who don't know me or know the Lannister name, I am Tywin Lannister and you ought to know that already. There's a severe lack of knowledge in this country, a lack of knowledge about surroundings, industry, history, science, all of it. When I see ridiculous fools on the television spouting inane prattle I'm reminded of that old Isaac Asimov statement.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

He does have an excellent point, even if he was a damned liberal.

E-mails, text messages, thumb-up icons, commentary on blog entries, crippled, butchered and slaughtered writing attempts - all of it virtual, none of it tangible.

Modern man is present everywhere and leaves not a single trace behind.

Letter writing is a dying art. It's a pity and a shame.

This Wednesday at 8pm my pyrotechnics company is putting together a wonderful show. I've had a large hand in designing and preparing this display, so I hope everyone likes it.

Admission is free and food and beverages are reasonably priced, but feel free to bring your own. However, note that alcoholic beverages will be prohibited.

And there will be dragons.

Park Address

((OOC: Event is closest to this one in design but I've handwaived the exact location a bit to allow maximum attendance for those interested..))

If you really needed to talk to someone, but weren't sure if they would want to talk to you or how to really contact them, how would you do that?

Sometimes I wonder how war vets feel when all the fighting and the blood and the gore and the lives sacrificed and all that horrendous trauma they have gone through have amounted to a big, fat Monday off that everyone else gets to celebrate.

Thank you very much for the day off. I'll leave the reopening of old wounds and reminders of pointless sacrifices to the callous people on television.

I'm having a barbeque out of my balcony on Monday, so if you're having one of your own, I'm not coming.

If you're not having one of your own, you know where I live.

Sorry to just drop in but you don't call anymore.

Still wasting your time emoting, drinking and whoring or have you lot actually done something productive?
