What would you name your kids if you have any?

Astrid May for a girl, I don't know about a boy. Kevin likes the name Astrid, and I do too, but it's really his choice. May is my middle name, my mother's middle name, my grandmother's middle name, and my great-grandmother's middle name. So it's really important to me to keep that.

Where do you expect this to lead? I am not him anymore, so you can get your muddled ideas about my salvation out of your head.

[Anger briefly transforms the deep voice and his breathing quickens, losing its comfortable rhythm. But only for a moment. He has become adept at calming himself; at feeling numb.]

Let them come to me if they so desire. I tell you now that my patience is already wearing thin.

I woke up just in time to eat breakfast before I had to leave. Today's adventure was the zoo event. I got to the volunteer check in table and they sent me to the room where the mascots would be dressing so I could guide around a mascot. I waited until an hour after my shift started, and the guy for the flamingo costume never showed up, so I went to get Sarah, who told me to just go in and enjoy the event. I talked to one of the docents somewhat about the elephants and their plans to expand the elephant area and maybe get a bull so they can have baby elephants. This led into talking about pregnant Qinu the beluga at Georgia Aquarium.

There were stations to get wine, beer, and food all over the zoo. I wound up getting one cup of sparkling mango wine, and then eating the food. It was good. I couldn't eat two of the things because they had seafood, but I got some steak, and a piece of a taco and some donuts. I discovered that it's impossible to see the gorillas with wheels - there just isn't a ramp onto the observation platform. So that made me sad, especially as there was someone with a microphone talking about gorillas up there, and I would have liked to listen.

I wound up watching the elephants for a long time, and the sun bears, and the pandas. The sunbears were clearly distressed that it was past time for them to be off exhibit and behind the scenes doing whatever they do there. They were pacing in front of the exit to their exhibit and occasionally jumping up on it like "let me in!" I kind of understand - it was 90F and they're black bears. But they're from Malaysia, certainly they should be used to hot weather? The tortoises were off exhibit with a sign that said "even Atlanta can be cold to a tropical animal. Check us out starting in late spring" - did I mention it was 90F out? Certainly that's not too cold for anything that has an outdoor enclosure in Atlanta?

I started driving home, and Kevin called to tell me he'd ordered me dinner from someplace we'd never eaten at before. So, I came home to dinner, and when I answered the door, the dog ran past me, and jumped on the guy with the food. He started jumping and screaming, which of course makes the dogs think he wants to play, so they're jumping and barking too. I collect my dogs and my food, and start to close the door and he's out there with his pants leg pulled up yelling "ma'am, ma'am!" so I peek out the door and he says "do you have the peppers?" I have absolutely no idea what he's talking about and he keeps gesturing to his leg asking for peppers. I finally say, "I have no idea what you want," and he says, "fine then I'll call the cops!" Since there was not a mark on his leg anywhere, and I have no idea why he wants peppers unless maybe he wants me to pepper spray my dogs, I tell him, "you do that then," and kick the door closed. Why do people who are afraid of dogs take jobs as delivery drivers? Honestly, get a job as a cook or something where you don't have to interact with people or dogs if you're afraid of dogs. Anyway, I'm seriously stressed out because I don't want him to report my dogs to the police.

Dear Frank-
Years ago I started writing notes and putting them in random places like behind paintings in hotels, between the pages at book stores and in Sky Mall Magazines on airplanes. While browsing through a PostSecret book, I found one of my notes. That small ripped piece of paper is featured above. I attended your event last week at CMU. I’m thankful for your ability to speak to people in their broken places.

What the fuck? You wanna send me away from Derry and go someplace totally cool that doesn't have Ronald McDonald hounding our every step?

Don't even read the book, just do it! Anywhere that's not the sewers means I have it made.

[ And, after a pause.]

Just... Maybe the rest of us could come, too?

Joke all you like about "my banter" with Maiev in a 'certain dungeon', but I draw the line upon you seriously subjecting me to actually being involved in exploring any possible 'relationship' between the two of us.

On that note, how long are you going to entertain the delusion that you're capable of forcing me to go anywhere, even after the Legion has been dealt with?

You must realize the folly of your ideas on dragging me to that world that's been on your mind lately. As amusing as it might be to watch the Archmage flail about, I have more important things to be doing.

Given how long it has been since you've done anything in this medium I advise that you focus your attention on those you've already invested time in and leave me be.

Pretty late to the game, aren't ya?

Can't really complain, though. Seeing as I was pretty much boxed up and left to rot on a shelf for a good four years now. You could almost say I was getting... rusty.

So what's the skinny? Gonna put me somewhere "special" and watch history repeat itself or are you gonna give good ol' Jack a break?

Mister Mun, you realize that it would be mean to wish Master and Mistress and the others to the Far Shore, right? I don't care if it's mean to Mihaya and stop mentioning him among everyone else, but you want me to either not remember Master and everyone, or for them to die. I don't like either option, to be honest, nor do I see why you would find it interesting or funny.

has anyone been to Costa Rica recently?

Brainstorming a "Girl's Trip" for February and this was my friend's suggestion (and it is for her - she is a Mom of two and I suggested we get away for a few days so she can just have some time to herself and leave the kiddos with Dad).

I mean, I've been practicing my Spanish for a few months now! Duolingo says I'm 50% fluent so that should at least be able to get us to a hotel and airport...and the library LOL (because every foreign language teaches you how to ask where the library is!)

Anyway, if you've been to Costa Rica and have any tips/tricks, let me know!

Write about your first crush. Who was it?

I don't recall ever having a crush on anyone I knew in person, because I seem to have always recognized that that way lay sex, and I wasn't interested. I did have a celebrity crush on Jonathan Brandis, and his character Lucas Wolenczak from seaQuest DSV, which was probably my first and only crush in a way that you'd actually think of as a crush.

I woke up at 2 this afternoon because Kevin woke me up taking a shower. He was working from home and apparently decided the way to deal with this was to wake up at the moment he had to be at work and then take a shower on his lunch break. We got subs from Jimmy John's which I was able to shove in my mouth just in time to walk out the door.

Stop one was my therapist's office. Traffic made me a little late, but since it was apparently a 60 minute appointment instead of my usual 30 minutes, that was fine. We talked about goals, and talked about writer's block. She basically wanted me to look at what I have accomplished instead of what I haven't accomplished.

I came home and talked to Kevin for half an hour before heading out to my father's house. I got to my father's house a little early and he was in the shower, so I entertained myself with his dog until he was ready to go. Tonight's adventure was the Temptations and 4 Tops concert. Of course it's more like Temptation and 4 Top because only one man survives from each group, and they've filled their ranks with younger men. I thought the concert was alright, but the 4 Tops for some reason were singing everyone else's songs. I mean, I know you could fill an hour with 4 Tops hits, but for some reason they played Mack the Knife, and My Way and several other songs that I didn't even know that weren't their songs. My dad was pretty disappointed, and he wasn't alone - people were leaving the concert in droves. Our entire aisle emptied out before the end of the concert.

I got home at midnight, and talked to Kevin for an hour since the dogs woke him up barking when I walked in the door. I immediately took my meds, as I had forgotten both at lunch and dinner (since I never ate dinner), and I was starting to go into withdrawals. I'm still clenching my jaw and pretty uncomfortable, though it's starting to get better.

STOP LAUGHING ALREADY!!! Any idiot would have found this out ages ago. You're just late, like the old hag you are.

And don't smirk like that either! Puma Tiger Scorpion is an awesome name for a cat.

You'll figure it out, but right now, you're worrying too much. You're thinking too much about it, and that only makes it worse. And you know it.

And I know you're tired. You were a different kind of tired last night when you wrote the first part of the story, and you were excited 'cause you had that idea, so it all came out at once and you barely looked to see if you spelled things right.

And now you're just worrying and tired, and that's no good.

Yes, I know I need more little pictures. But those can wait too. I wanted to play before you were ready to play with me.

What?

No, I don't know where I'm from. I thought you were supposed to figure that out....?

Clean your room. Go to bed. Play games, I don't know. Try writing again when you're done not thinking about it for a while, maybe?
