OOC Note: Sorry for deleting the version of this I posted yesterday, I was having a bad anxiety day and spun myself up worrying over jokes not landing well and panic-deleted. Apologies especially to the people who had already commented or were trying to comment, I hope you will forgive me my transgression and not hold this against me forever/never comment on another thing I write for the rest of our lives.

Who knows things about getting rid of curses? We don't know we have curse on Haus, but we are worried enough that we think maybe we should do everything we can find out about to break curses just in case. Even when things are normal, hockey people basically are like granny witches, doing little rituals so we feel like we are in charge of fate. Now things are not normal, magic is real, so we need more stuff to do against bad luck.

Here is what I have collected so far with google:
  • Decoy Poppet: Make little dolls of us to distract the bad luck. Poppet looks like doll; is there difference between poppet and doll? Should we also make decoy of Haus?
  • Mirrors: Put mirrors outside Haus to bounce back curses
  • Salt Bath: Take bath with salt and baking soda and lavender oil. I am thinking I will do this anyway, it sounds relaxing.
  • Crystal Wand: It says use selenite wand, wave it around body and area to cleanse.
  • Smoke Cleansing: Burn bundle of herbs, wave smoke around. Different ones say different herbs, do magic people here have ideas?
  • Floral Cleansing Bowl: Instead of lighting on fire, put herbs in bowl of hot water and carry them around.
  • Lemon?: Sweep your aura with a salted lemon, it says. I do not know how to sweep aura, please explain if you know.

First Shitty, then Nursey, now Dex. Did Haus get cursed and we did not realize? I am not joking, that seems like it could be real thing here.

How would you know if place has curse on it?

Hey! You said you missed the food from back home, yeah? There's a great restaurant in the city, Ozero, that has pelmeni and pickles that will take you right back to your granny's kitchen. It's run by a bunch of rusalky, but they're cool. (According to Miss Anja, rusalky are just victims of bad PR. Don't get her started on The Church unless you want to hear a whole epic rant.)

I decided I would read some nonfiction, do some learning, you know? But because this is Vallo, I am not sure if this book is put on wrong shelf in library, or if books just fall in from very weird worlds sometimes.

Title: The Mad Scientific Method
Author: Franz Beetle, Tyrant of Beetleburg
Publisher: Paris Institute of the Extraordinary Press

The chapters are:
1. Introduction
2. Experience a Spark of Genius
3. Demand Answers from the Universe
4. Maniacal Cackling
5. Violate Laws of God and Man
6. Escape Angry Mob
7. Show Them! Show Them All!
8. Bibliography

I guess "Show them All!" is one way to say "share results with scientific community," but I'm not sure it is good way to do that.

So what do we think? Misplaced humor, or somewhere there is world where mad science is standardized and we got their book?

Well. Alright.

Thank you, Sabrina, for finding me in the forest and taking me to the Dead-On-Arrival DOA. I encountered a very gruesome creature near where I first showed up but it's an ice sculpture now. I doubt it will be moving anytime soon. Not the most figuratively moving or aesthetically appealing work of art I've ever done, but needs must and everything.

My name is Elsa. I come from a place called Arendelle, or as of more recent times, the Enchanted Forest. It's strange slightly terrifying? nice to meet everyone. None of this has sunk in yet--

Today I learned that when you walk around with no shoes, that is barefoot, not bear-foot. (Thank you, Solnyshko!)

I thought it made sense. Bears don't wear shoes, so you are walking like bear. Bear-foot. Barefoot also makes sense, but is not as cute.

Hello everyone, it is I, Solaire! I try to find enjoyment in most things, because there is never any situation so bad that it cannot be made worse by whining about it, but please allow me to whine about it for a brief moment because I am, to use modern terminology, losing my shit: these short days! I hate them! I hate them so, so much! Who invented them? Why?? I know we've rounded the corner and the days are getting longer again, but it's taking SOOOOO LONG. I miss my sun! I miss its radiant light! These long nights make me very sad and trigger my depression and make me praise the sun out of desperation, not love!

I hate winter. :( That is all. Please forgive my rant. It's very difficult to love the sun when it's so often absent!

I am thinking of this poem by Pushkin today, because it is one that reminds me of Shitty.

Что смолкнул веселия глас?
Раздайтесь, вакхальны припевы!
Да здравствуют нежные девы
И юные жены, любившие нас!
Полнее стакан наливайте!
На звонкое дно
В густое вино
Заветные кольца бросайте!
Подымем стаканы, содвинем их разом!
Да здравствуют музы, да здравствует разум!
Ты, солнце святое, гори!
Как эта лампада бледнеет
Пред ясным восходом зари,
Так ложная мудрость мерцает и тлеет
Пред солнцем бессмертным ума.
Да здравствует солнце, да скроется тьма!

I am not finding translation I like very much yet, but if I find something good I will show in English. It is called "Bacchic Song" if you are wanting to look for yourself. It reminds me of Shitty because it is poem written in very bad times with lots of hope for good times to come, and lots of drinking about it. I know our friend is well at home, but still I will miss him wandering into kitchen with no pants on to ask if we are down to motherfucking clown.

Hey, we are all checking on Lardo, but I want to check on you also. You want distraction or talk about it or anything, I am here, okay? And Shayba, too, she will let you put your face on fluffy belly.

I was never really a Christmas Movie kind of person but now I'm going to constantly be wondering if they're normal people stuck in some alternate dimension now. Thanks, Vallo.

It makes me sad that there is ice skating in park tonight and I can't skate. Knee injuries are worst thing! I still have two more weeks of PT before I even get thinking about putting skates on. (((

But on good side, Ksenia is making gingersnaps and I get to eat them right out of oven! Between my sister and Babka, I will have all baked goods I can stand.

NEW LANGUAGE RULE:

If your language has articles, you are not allowed to complain about nouns having gender in someone else's language. You know why I give up on articles? Because they are tiny words with big explanations that take forever, and everybody knows what you mean without them! English speakers saying "why is coffee masculine and newspaper feminine, that makes no sense!" can just stop. Manly coffee makes as much sense as A and THE. It is just grammatical construction, no one thinks coffee has dick.

Grab a coffee or something stronger. I got a text from Care Caroline about what we can only call Vallo being Vallo. She's got her hands f Some of you are likely already aware, so to head off questions and chaos, the DOA can confirm there seems to be some kind of timeslip event happening. Don't freak out if you suddenly have a kid or someone you know isn't the right age. The latter might be easier to adjust to since it's happened at least once before in the time I've been here - but the kid thing may be a bit shocking.

If you need a hand, the DOA has services to help out. That said, though, in an effort to coordinate and assist, we're asking you to chime in here with any reports you want to share so that we can manage resources and get a handle on expectations.

Cool thing about life, how there is always more to learn, yeah? I am not in school for many years, but still I learn new things every day! Like today I learn important lesson:

IF YOU FIND SURPRISE BOX IN WOODS, DO NOT COME NEAR BOX WITHOUT WEAPON.

Because maybe box is not box, but is actually bitey asshole and will try to chew your arm off! This is not good start to morning.

Thanks Tas for not letting me get eaten, thanks Wen Qing for fixing bite! Now I go bury pain in pancakes.

If anyone who has turned into a cat can read this, feel free to come to Papa's Pride! I have cat armor if you feel in danger, but I've also set up several platforms to lay on and soak up rays of sun, as well as a pile of catnip toys and I'll even set out saucers of cream. And all the scritches you can handle!

Hey, what do we think about fancy fluffy mouse? (I know he is not really mouse, but I do not remember right word.) This lady does not like him, even though he is very fancy, and I am worried she will throw him in street.

See?

I would have to check and see if he gets along with Shayba first, and find out how to look after, but I do not want little guy living in box on corner begging for quarters.

TUESDAY TEAM TRIVIA AT THE LEAKY CAULDRON


Starting on Tuesday, 17 August at 8PM, the Leaky Cauldron will be hosting pub trivia once a month! There will be some really fun prizes, including but not limited to: free cookies, a round of drinks on the house, and a $50.00 gift certificate to use at the Leaky (don’t worry - there won’t really be an expiration date but we’d sure like it if you used them sooner rather than later).

Morgan Yu will actually be hosting the trivia nights and Murderbot will be assisting by way of fact checking.

I'll let Morgan post something closer to the date itself with more information regarding how the trivia night will go, and we can both answer any questions you might have, but I wanted to get something out there now that we have it set in stone so that everyone can put it on their calendars.

We hope to see you there!
