I woke up this morning with a mandrake leaf in my mouth. Let me tell you, that is not a fun experience. I'm pretty sure I very nearly died. Aside from the choking hazard, this is vile tasting.

And, according to my dreams, I'm probably going to have to keep it there for at least an entire month. Sorry, luv.

I made lunch with the news on than tuned it off to have a nice meal with my daughter.

Meltdown ensues - tears, screaming, pushing the plate away because "I ruined her whole life" by turning off the news.

I feel like my kid is broken.

[info]lovedcompletely in [info]valarnet

The petri-dish I work in has finally made me succumb to the various illnesses attached to the sticky hands of small kids. I feel like I might be dying.

So, does anyone have any novel ways to get better quickly? I don't want to be sick over Halloween and these kinds of bugs always take it out of me.

So my dad bit it in my dreams.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

So I thought Mason and I mighta been able to avoid this whackadoodle dream thing but apparently not.

Last night I dreamed that I was twelve - nearly thirteen, which is super important - again and summer vacation had started and my brother and I were being sent off to some tiny town in Oregon to visit a long lost, kind of stinky, definitely grumpy Great Uncle that we totally didn't know that we had.

I got a boyfriend in the dreams, too. Which, uh, okay. Was a bit weird because I don't remember being that boy mad at twelve but whatever. Except he was actually just eight gnomes who tried to propose to me and then they kidnapped me to make me their queen and we had to defeat them with a leaf blower.

Before anyone asks, no I didn't have cheese before bed and I definitely haven't been drinking and my candy consumption was worryingly low for yesterday...

There is nothing more tedious than a board meeting where the board just shout needlessly at one another.

At what point do old white men stop craving the sound of their own voice? I'm considering replacing them all with graduate students, millennials. That would give them the shock of their life.

Hmm, if I purposely try to cause a heart attack and it happens, is that manslaughter?

[info]outsidethewalls in [info]valarnet

I guess Mom's been deep cleaning where we keep the holiday things, because I just got a package full of some of my old Halloween costumes, minus I guess the more special ones, and the things I made in school. Which means I'm finally old enough, I guess, that their junk has become my junk. Am I supposed to hold on to this? Dispose of it to save Mom and Dad the guilt of doing it themselves? Call my sister and ask if she, also, received her own box of junk, and discuss what to do with it? Do I expect more of this in the future? No one told me about this part of adulthood. I live in an apartment, we don't have room for more of this.

I really should know better than to read the comments on practically any article on Yahoo. I've never seen more horrible comments than on Yahoo. It doesn't matter what the article is about; these people are honestly the worst. They're rude and criticize everything. The worst are any article that is even remotely LGBTQ+ related or Kardashian related.

This year I’m ahead of the game I think! I’ve already figured out my and Kurt’s Halloween costumes for this year instead of scrambling at the last minute to figure it out and just pulling out my old cheerleader uniform like I did last year. No I’m going as a witch and taking advantage of his walking stroller to get out of trying to figure out how to carry him and the bags. He’s still not a 100% steady on his feet yet so this way it’ll be safe and good practice for him and I can use felt and fabric and fabric paint to make it look like he’s in a cauldron being turned into baby stew.

Hey. Can I ask you something? I know it’s coming out of nowhere and might not be the best timing and you can absolutely refuse to answer of course. I just don’t know anyone else that I can ask that might have an answer.

Now that all of that is over, I think I'm going to leave the country for some much needed R&R. At least, at the earliest opportunity. New campaign shooting starts in November, and I have some exciting news to share next year - I hope that soon we'll be able to connect my name to far more positive things than all of the injustices and human rights violations my father has directed. Though I know that nothing I do from here on will erase these things, nor should it.

I only hope to forge some kind of better path.

When I get back, I would like to reconnect. And would welcome any tips from you as to how better to invest some of the money I've been making.

I know I already spoke to some of you about this, but I'm taking any of you who want to come along with me to Okinawa. I hope to start the trip on the weekend of the 19th, and bring us back into town the next Saturday. We should have plenty of time to visit Japan's other islands and see anything we want to check out while we're there, and Okinawa's beaches still have warm enough water for swimming. You're all free to land and go your separate ways, too, but I can book us all rooms at a popular resort there so that we all have one place to touch base at.

Please just let me know if you'd like to come.

So much for that pl

Not back in the area even 24 hours, and already a new set of Dreams. Thanks for the welcome back, Orange County. Thanks.

That said, it's been about two and a half years since I left. So - new bookstores, cafes, and/or waffle places I should know about.

I dreamt I watched stars born in a cradle nebula. I named each one as they went off into space. The reason I mention this is how it affected me. I've never seen anything so beautiful in real life. I woke with tears in my eyes, and I am not so much on my pride as to deny it. If you had seen what I dreamt you would have too.

This will be weekend #2 for Knott's Scary Farm. I love it! Every so often one of my fellow actors tries to scare me by ripping on a chainsaw or coming out of nowhere with a "scary" growl. I just tell them "Nice try" and blow them a kiss.

That being said, it really is a good time! You should come!

This is why I shouldn't try to bake things as a way to be nice to other people. Or cook using anything but the microwave ever. Apparently using wax paper as the liner on your baking sheet is a bad idea because it make a shit ton of smoke come out of the oven when you open it up.

Jacques Schnee Found Guilty; More indictments to follow.

The court was shocked on Monday morning when the defendant fired his attorney and took the stand, addressing the court and confessing to every crime he was on trial for - and a half dozen more that had already come to light following various investigations and a new report from Orange County Picture News.

The trial was suspended for two days as the judge and prosecution searched for any signs of coercion. A swift investigation of Mr. Schnee's cell and visitation records came up clean, and a psychologist cleared Mr. Schnee of any potential issues yesterday afternoon. The confession was officially entered into the court records this morning, and the Jury returned a guilty verdict within an hour of deliberations.

Sentencing is scheduled for Friday; The prosecution is asking for multiple consecutive sentences that could total well over fifty years. Additional investigations into Mr. Schnee's other dealings will lead to further indictments later this year, and it is unlikely that he will be eligible for any amount of early release or parole.

I was stumbling out of bed to get to my kitchen for coffee and ran right into a jukebox. YES, A JUKEBOX. Why? Because I had a dream about a bar/restaurant we frequent in our dreams and apparently I needed the jukebox from it in my apartment.

It couldn't wait until after I move into a new place? tghtwrjga. It's too early for this shit.

Apologizing in advance to you for yelling at you in the dreams.

Stupid dreams woke me up early. I don't know how I haven't gone insane living in a tower by myself, my mother is gone a lot, but man do I have a lot of hobbies. I've basically painted the entire inside of the tower. I think Pascal is probably the reason why I haven't gone insane. But I did reach my 18th birthday and asked my mother to go see the lights in the sky and she basically sang a song about how I'm an idiot and she knows best and the outside world is evil.

But I did try singing the song in my dreams that activates the magic in my hair and I did see a bit of a glow! Progress.
