It's funny how unpredictably nostalgia can hit you. I don't have much to be nostalgic for - I had a wretched existence as a searingly attractive-yet-abused indentured servant back home in the dripping ossuary caverns of the Ninth - and yet the people! A tiny blot of people. Not many people, mind, but a few - they're worth missing. Sex Pal would have just loved this place. He's a scholarly type - into dusty things of Great Historical Import - whatever that is. He'd absolutely see all the shit the academics have done here and just yeet himself into the center of it. (Incidentally, Sex Pal is not a sex pal; his name is Palemedes Sextus and he is a beautiful soul trapped within an amber of bitchiness, and he deserves the nickname. I don't swing that way because have you seen boobs, but if you put a knife to my throat and I had to chose, I'd go with Fandral here at Vallo anyhow. He reminds me of a palomino. Anyway, Sex Pal is just a name he hates and pretends not to notice when I use it. Sex Pal thinks I'll stop using it if he doesn't give me a reaction. I am going to use it until the universe ends.)

Anywho, rather than sit about and mope and wonder how everyone back home is - dead and/or smug, I'd wager - I'm going to try something new - yoga! It sounds awful. I can't wait to bend myself into a plate of spaghetti and wonder what the hell past!Gideon was thinking. Anyone have any experience? Can I do it raging?

I've been patient, I've been sweet-tempered and just, I haven't grabbed you by the ankles and shaken you, so now I must ask: why have you been moping about looking like some aggressively-haunted Victorian doll? I didn't want to be a bother but I simply can't be mature any longer.

I was rewatching my favorite episode of Sanctuary Moon (episode 324, "Galava's Belt") earlier today and now I have a question that I am not sure I want to know the answer to, but I'll ask it anyway and if you all are disgusting in your answer I'll just fucking ignore you: why do humans shut their eyes when they kiss their romantic partners? Is it the pores? I bet it's the pores.

I am a General in the Tranavian army (which I know means not a lot to people because Tranavia doesn't exist for you, I promise, it's impressive). I am feared in our border countries--there is a curse word that was created in one because of me. I am a very, very, very good blood mage. I have spent years trudging through swamps and forests and mountains in blistering heat and freezing cold.

Why am I terrible with this stupid oven.

Bros! Anyone want to get down and dirty with some clay? My eyes were def bigger than my hands at an art store, and the deal was so legit I couldn't NOT buy it? So we have A Lot of clay at the Haus. Come by and take some!

Lardo Lesson! Polymer clay is best for like, beginners and kids because it's soft so you can mess with it a lot and you can bake it in the oven when you're ready, so that's super handy. Earthenware clay is what you see when you see flower pots--that's terracotta which is a type of earthenware. It's a little stickier to work with but it's pretty easy to use. And then stoneware clay is the type of clay most people think of when they visualize a pottery wheel, it's the grey clay. Not that other types can't be, but for simplicity sake, yeah.

I'm not amazing at pottery or sculpture with clay, I usually go for like, mixed mediums when doing sculpture--Shitty bedazzled the FUCK out of a jock strap for me once and it was the greatest thing in the world--but I know basics! And I have a wheel somewhere here that I can dig out if anyone is really curious or has a kid who wants to try, just wear clothes that you don't mind getting messy in! No kiln though, damn.

(Dex, build me a kiln when you got a sec, please and thanks)

My fave pottery piece I've ever seen was mixed with performance art. One of the shows at Samwell, person literally sculpted a piece of shit, right? And they're like, by the end of the night it will be something different so people were sitting around watching them mold and shape and carve and whatnot. End of the night, it's still a piece of shit, literally. Person stands up, takes a bow and says "I call it politics." Amazing.

So this isn’t the result of somebody screwing around with a bunch of magical rocks again? Because the Blip was stupid enough and this feels more like a Blop.

Of all the things I’m most annoyed by, I was one stamp away from a free coffee.

I guess SOME people don't appreciate BEING ACCOSTED being asked: "what's your deal?" on the streets by strangers. But if you offer it up then I'm not asking and you're giving the answer and no one has to get angry. You were right Baz, but I'm not going to ADMIT that you were

So consider this your opening to say what your deal is without being asked if you want. I'm normal, but I have wings I don't have to hide wings I have a TAIL not completely and not always.

I appreciate the video. Clearly, people had a lot of fun with it. And it's actually helpful, too, so - thanks.

Anyway, hi Vallo. I heard there might be people here from my world. Anyone from Earth-Prime? Kara? Kelly? Lena? ugh

[filtered to hargreeves people and their associates, any interested friends, parents of other smol people, idk]

Not complaining about the sudden bonus appearing in my bank account - maybe that was a reward for working overtime and then some during the turkey mess. But it's good timing since a lot of that will be used to throw Claire a birthday tea party this Sunday afternoon, at Looking Glass Teas. In the backyard, so it will be a legitimate whimsical experience.

Let us know if you can attend, and feel free to bring any other youngins - I know she has some friends at school she'd love to see there. I'm also going to order a cake from someplace otherwise if I baked it, it would be carrot.

Well, he did it literally under the wire but my little shit of a mentee is all signed up for Fight Club. Actually had to put an ice pack on my eye too, so shit's legit.

Also if you liked the pillow fight idea, it was all Evie's brainchild. If you hated it, I came up with it and you can say it to my face because you know I don't give a fuck.

Today I'd like to commemorate my cat, Potya. When one of the fucking insane turkeys got into our flat the other day and I was busy grabbing a knife from the kitchen it must have gone for me and she went for its throat and murdered the murder turkey. I feel like a failure in my own flat but I am a proud father today.

Potya is okay, but there's still blood and feathers everywhere and I do not know how to deal with this.

Holy Lady Gaga Oreos, friends! (they're really good, by the way, mostly just like a Golden Oreo but come in super fun colors so I love them) Like Ronan said before, next week Sunday is our adoption event in collaboration with the shelter and let me tell you, it's going to be SO amazing. Every single animal up for adoption are fantastic, some are great running partners, some are perfect snuggle buds, some are low--key low-maintenance friends, there's really an animal friend for everyone! So come next weekend and prepare to fall in love--or just donate money, that's amazing too!! Either way we're going to have the BEST time.

In case you didn't know (lololololol I think most people do but I have to say it anyway because I don't want to assume!!) I love snacks of all kinds and here are some of my faves.

Here there be pictures of snacks of various types just FYI for your screens, please do not consider them recommendations from me, Jade, just Matthew, who loves everything. )

Okay, have a GREAT day!! :))))))))))

HEY HEY, VALLO! It's ya girl, Ella! I'm serving up some A+ drinks down at Lux tonight and tomorrow night, so come by and see me after you go to the grand re-opening of Cerberus Books (congrats, Sabrina) to keep the party going!

[poe.]

Thanks again for the invite to come out on Monday, that was a heck of a lot of fun.

When're you thinking you'll come by Lux?

[lucifer.]

Booze not included, do you have any suggestions for getting rid of crappy dreams?

Alright, dumb dumbs. I am on a quest to find the absolute worst dive bar in this place tonight - anyone in? Suggestions as to where to start? I'm talking like you better hope your tetanus shot is up to date worst dive bar, none of that hipster dive bar bullshit where they serve you in light bulbs for aesthetic. If my triple is coming in a light bulb it better because all the glasses got thrown at the walls.

Sure, why not.

That's the short summary - but the longer summary is, we're brought here by an inexplicable 'blip' (which is actually the technical term I've heard used to describe a similar phenomenon and, well, I guess there really isn't a better word than blip) of arcane energy that won't pop us back out until the balance is offset once more, but in the meantime we're supposed to 'build lives' and 'drink much alcohol.'

Free drink at Galahd for the newcomers, I got that too.

Oh, and occasionally monsters crawl from the woodwork and/or forest to come kill us, and there's also another dark dimension mirroring this one currently contained in a snowglobe trinket. What am I missing? Anyone want to chime in?

I was called a goat today when I gave an extension on an assignment. I don't know yet if that is a good or bad thing.

CALEB
Sydney asked if I would be willing to aid in the event at the Barns on the 14th and I didn't realize until after agreeing what that meant and that I perhaps ought to have checked in with you first. Most of the holidays in Rosohna were saturated with Luxon worship, so I generally ignored or went with the flow, as they say, for the sake of appearance and I seem to still be getting used to the plethora of them here.

[...] Not that I necessarily feel that a specific day is needed to appreciate you and show what you mean to me, as I attempt to express that every day but maybe I -- ah.

I am being ridiculous. Let me start over.

Would you have dinner with me on the 14th? I should be free come the evening, though you could of course spend time at the Barns as well, if you'd like. I don't know if you saw, but there is going to be an area to just pet cats.
