So this is the Valar net. Cool. I'm Gale. Lived in the OC my whole life. I own the Peppy Pie pizza joint, so there's that. I really don't know what else to say. Uh. I live with two dogs, two cats, all rescues who are living their best life now. Am I supposed to say I like long walks on the beach, and preferably after dark? I don't know. One of my customers suggested I check out the network, so here I am. I'm really not sure what to say, or whatever. So, hi, I guess?

Has anyone watched that Crime Scene series on Netflix? The one about the Cecil Hotel? Watched it the other night with Eliot and Margo and it is so bloody fucking creepy! There is so much about that case that just doesn't make sense. Yes, it makes sense in the long run, but it still doesn't make sense. I still have so many questions

It absolutely makes sense that it was one of the inspirations for the Hotel season of American Horror Story.

I finally understand why Klaus' dream last month freaked him out so much. I mean, aside from being kidnapped and tortured, seeing so many ghosts like that would freak anyone out. Not me apparently though, but then again I'm also a ghost, in the dreams. So other ghosts don't exactly freak me out. But I can understand why it might traumatize someone else cause if I were in that situation and I wasn't a ghost, I'd definitely have been traumatized.

Trying to change careers is stressful, but also thrilling. I really think moving out here was for the best. I have my family and now I have a chance at a new life.

How are you all doing? Making any big changes too? BTW, my invitation to dinner is still open to anyone who wants a home-cooked meal. It gets a little lon--

So what were the odds that both of my sisters were going to end up leaving town at the same time? I kind of expected that Katherine and Enzo might leave at some point since Enzo kept opening clubs all over the place, but I wasn't expecting Elena to get a job offer that would cause her to move too. Katherine had already moved out when she got married, but now that Elena is gone too, this house seems so big. I wouldn't dream of selling it though. Ali actually moved in, so I'm not by myself, but I'm wondering if maybe I should rent out the other two bedrooms.

I've been trying to ignore my dreams for months, trying to keep myself awake much too long, but I guess eventually the thing I was trying to avoid would happen. I'd hoped these new dreams would not repeat all that death and destruction, and it did all happen ... differently.

But it still happened. The Sector 7 plate still fell, all those people still died.

Great... So Jericho is gonna get hit with radiation from a damn nuke. Which means clearing out the fallout shelter under medical center. On second thought, that shelter didn't pan out. There wouldn't of been any air. So, we had to take the critical patients, which was about 11 people, to the fallout shelter under town hall and the rest of us to a mine shaft.

... Where we're going to blow the entrance to trap us inside from the radiated rain.

Of course my dream self is crazy and heading off to his best friend's ranch because there's assholes there with a gun. So, he blows the entrance to the mine up. Dad can't be found either. This is turning crazy, on all fronts.

ALSO, BEING SHOT AT SUCKS! Guess, it's a good thing that I'm a damn good shot and took care of the idiots. Now? We need to head into the storm shelter from this damn radiation rain. Luckily, we got inside before the rain started coming down.

Supposedly, it's never safe around me. You hear that, Sheppard. NEVER safe.

Thank goodness Valentine's Day is over! That's definitely one of the busier holidays for baked goods and desserts around here.

Now I've got to set my sights on St. Patrick's Day, which probably be just some Irish inspired items like rye bread and random green items like shamrock shortbread cookies and maybe a Bailey's mint pie or some kind of dessert with Guinness since so many people just celebrate the day without being Irish.

Then we jump into Easter. This beginning of the year is always insane with holidays.

I was in the store today and they have Easter stuff out already.

What's everyone's opinion on Peeps? Yay or nay?

I'm not really into it. I think it's Easter's version of candy corn.

With all the weird weather going on in other states, it's a good time to remind everyone to have a small survival kit ready.

It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Flashlight, batteries, candles, matches, bottled water, non-perishable food and first aid supplies would be enough.

You know... it's pretty bad when a three year old understands the use of a service dog better than people do.

When you're out with your husband and daughter, and it's your daughter who tells someone off for trying to mess with daddy's dog. Telling them that it's not a pet. It's there to help her daddy. My little girl is definitely fierce, that's for sure.

I keep hoping that common sense will prevail but then someone uses Gorilla Glue in their hair and is then surprised at how big of a mistake it was.

I do not have the same hair care needs, however, I would imagine that nobody is keeping Gorilla Glue near their hair products. If you do, you should consider moving it.

My dream self continued to resist sleep. Started having hallucinations of a tattooed guy in a corn field. The field is a common theme in my dreaming dreams. Not sure what it means. Maybe I should check into the symbolism. Or maybe not. Not sure I want to know.

Anyway, Samson convinced me to take him into town. Almost wrecked the truck because I could barely keep my eyes open. We went to the Templar lodge, or whatever it's called, looking for info. Those guys were as tight lipped as they come. We got exactly nothing, and walked away with a feeling like there was definitely something there. We just didn't find it.

Back at camp, I took an ice bath to try and stay awake. Gabe found me. Somehow he has kept up the ruse of his broken arm. But he carried me to his mother's trailer. And, yeah. Ruthie and me, we got a thing going. And she totally used her influence to make me finally give in to sleep. Even though I resisted, and tried to tell her how bad it is. Not just seeing Scudder. But the corn field, the running, always running.

I never seem to stop running. I know these dreams within dreams are trying to tell me something, but I have no idea what that is. I just wake up exhausted.

I had another dream last night. Really starting to feel like some kind of weird alt reality I'm living.

So we captured a Wraith and I tried to establish a relationship with him. Gave him the name Steve since he wouldn't tell me if he had a name. I don't even know if Wraiths use names. Anyway. We went to this planet where the scientists there were working on a blood alteration to fight off a Wraith feeding. Our doc went to help them and we used Steve as a guinea pig to test it and it seemed to work, he was unable to feed off the test subject. That guy died a little while later, but he was terminally ill so his death could have been from his illness. Except Steve died too. And by the time Carson could warn the lead scientist, half the population of these people had been inoculated, based on one test run result. So yeah, it wasn't perfected, or even close, and all those people started getting sick and dying. And their leader was like, so we lose a few, the Wraith won't mess with us. I do not understand that mindset in my dreams, and I do not understand that mindset in the real world.

Speaking of the real world, I'm running a 50% off flash sale on for flying lessons. That includes 6 lessons. Under 18 requires a parent or legal guardian signature. If you're interested come on down to [location] and ask for John.

I don’t care if Carl’s Jr. or whatever it is out here gives free senior drinks. We don’t. We offer a discount with ID. Or free coffee with purchase of a breakfast sandwich if you’re on the network. That’s it. That’s what we offer. Well that and a student discount, but that’s with ID from the campus. And no before anybody asks - one from when you were a student five years ago will not work. Current ID’s only. My cashiers check.

Speaking of my cashiers after what I dealt with today while covering the register so one of them could go on break - they’ve been given permission to respond verbally to bullying customers however they see fit. This guy in his 80’s came up and was trying to bully me into giving him a free donut with his combo since he didn’t want a drink. There’s no way we can substitute that way. Before he went stomping out he asked me if I felt good about myself refusing his simple request and refusing to help an old man out. Judging by the way he hit the door bar as he exited I don’t think he liked my question back. All I did was ask if he felt good about himself asking people to give him free things that he wasn’t entitled too.

The Gorilla Glue Challenge is apparently trending...I've now seen three patients for it...you will be sent to a hospital and have to explain to everyone why your hand or hair is glued to your head and that yes; glue actually works. Yes it will be difficult to remove..and yes you will get collective exasperated stares from all of us.


I can't believe I have to say this but your PSA: Don't gorilla glue stuff to your face/skin/head/eyes whatever.


and if you do, don't be shocked if the interns want to take pictures with you.

It's called creative problem solving - I wanted orange juice, couldn't get the lid off the bottle so I got a wrench out of the toolbox and used that to get it open. I don't get why Hazel is looking at me like this is the first time she's ever seen me do something like this.

I almost wish after this last Dream that I had been able to go to Petunia's wedding here just so I could find out if he's as much of an ass as Vernon in my Dreams. James and I went to dinner with Petunia and her fiance while we were on holiday from Hogwarts and it was just a nightmare from beginning to end. The men kept trying to impress either each other or us and competing the entire time and then Petunia brought up the magic part of things and the night got even worse somehow. Vernon referred to James and I as freaks and insisting that he and Petunia were clearly superior by virtue of not being able to do 'weird things' and Petunia backed him up. I know that my sister and I there, and here, have our differences but I'd always hoped for some reason that if it came down to it she'd still be in my corner and she wasn't.

As they left the restaurant, she told me that she couldn't have a freak in her wedding party so while I'll still be welcome to attend with a date, I'll be sitting in the pews. And she wasn't sure there'd be room for me with mum and dad with all the rest of the family attending but she'd try to make it happen.

Part of me hopes that I'll be allowed to skip attending this thing in the Dreams but I'm not going to hold my breath. Maybe I'll be surprised and it'll be a nice wedding and Petunia and I will actually get along for the day and Vernon will just have been having a bad night at dinner.

Is it really that hard for grown men to execute a contract for a job that they bid on without me having to constantly be on site making them work? We're months past when I wanted to open and they still haven't corrected half of what the inspector said had to be redone before I'd be allowed to open. I might not have been the height of maturity myself when I screamed at the foreman today but I've had it with the excuses and delays.

I hired skilled contractors and electricians, I made sure of that. But I'm starting to think that I need someone to actually be on the sites making them do the jobs right if they're ever going to be finished and I just don't have the time to do it myself right now. Anyone on here good at lighting a fire under crews asses and looking for a job?

“I lied to you/kept this major thing from you to protect you” will always be an insulting excuse and not based in actuality. Especially if the person being lied to is still pulled into the middle of the danger or whatever it is they’re supposedly being protected from.

I have a dream twin. Which kind of makes sense? I have a twin here too, I've just never met him.

Anyone available to come try and keep Cheshire busy for a few hours tomorrow while I finish up this stencil and cake for a client? I've been trying to transfer the impression he let me make to my stencil all day and he keeps bumping me and messing it up.

I could make him another bribe for his behavior like he wants but we had a deal - one fish pie and he'd let me make a stencil of his pawprint. The stencil isn't made yet so no new bribes for him to behave.

I'm tired of waking up feeling just as exhausted as I was when I went to bed the night before. I'm done wishing for my Dreams to be less exciting though. Especially after this last one - Eren's titan form was able to get the boulder in position in front of the hole in the wall. And then while I'm trying to get his human body free from his Titan form we almost get killed by two other Titans before we get rescued by the captain of the Squad Eren wants to join just in time. But that doesn't mean we're out of the woods.

Despite the fact that Eren saved everyone he's put on trial because of the fact that he can turn into a Titan but Levi, the Captain who rescued us, and his Commander was able to help convince the Court to let Eren join his Squad under his control. And of course Mikasa and I volunteer to join the Squad too.

I think things are going to get a lot worse for us before they start getting better there.

Finally heard back from my landlord - as long as I'm out by the end of next month, he'll let me out of my lease since my roommate left Orange County. Now to find a smaller place, pack and get entirely moved. It's doable I think. If I give up sleeping and cut back on the hours the truck is open and use more of my savings to stay afloat

Sorry, just because I'm not in culinary school and only do this part time doesn't mean I don't know what the fuck I am doing! But apparently the new shift manager at the bakery thinks otherwise. I've only been doing this since I got my learners permit when I was fifteen, you know? Maybe that means I know more about the day to day stuff.

We had some eggs that go out of date tomorrow, and as always, I was cracking them in the sink to wash the yolks down. Because if you just dump the entire thing in the compactor, it's going to stink. But I was apparently wasting time, goofing off, and should just throw it in there to get it over with. And we got into it until I finally did what I was asked. And predictably, they curdled in there because the kitchen stays freaking warm. Somehow this is my fault.

I'm just. I'm doing this for extra money, this isn't what I want to do with my life. My first job IS. I don't need this stress.

[Armin]

Don't worry. I haven't done anything rash. I mean, not yet anyway. I'm slowly being driven there. But I know it's something I'd need to talk to you about first. I could find another part time job, or do door dash, maybe write some freelance articles on the side. Or. We could sit down and see if what I make at the newspaper would be enough for us if we slow down on spending on some things. I just. I need out of there.

So I've had some more dreams and they...weren't good. I'm in my early 30s now, and I was trying to solve a series of bombings in Neptune. I figured out who it was and we saved a lot of people but I couldn't save Logan. He died in a car bomb that was meant for me. And to top it all off, we'd just gotten married an hour ago.

Then it was a year later and I was talking to Logan's therapist and leaving Neptune for a case.

Someone brought their car into the garage and I'm amazed at the amount of duct tape that was inside the engine. I asked if they had taken any advice from Stiles but the client said that this was all done before making an appointment for service.

I can't believe I have to say this to people other than Stiles but please don't fix your car with duct tape. It's not a good fix and most of the time it just makes the problem worse.

My dreams are taking me to Texas with Liz to find a faith healer that maybe can help my mother. That should be interesting because real life me is super skeptical.

In other news I watched the Framing Britney documentary and I am fully Team #FreeBritney now. I can't believe how misogynistic everyone was back in the 90's - no 17 year old should have to answer questions about her breasts and virginity status. It's understandable that she had a breakdown, but I think the time has come for her father to removed as her conservator so someone unrelated can help manager her things. I just want to give her a big hug.
