ARGH

Grapevine Of Worry (RP)

Dot was grateful for the little bits of downtime she'd been able to grab, lately. With everything that had happened -- Good as well as Bad, taking time to just breathe was increasingly valuable.


She didn't remember exchanging numbers with Chuck, but thank goodness for small miracles. She perched on the edge of the bed and punched in the number. Straight to voicemail, but a message was a message, either way.


"Hi, Chuck. It's Dot. You should call me when you get a chance. Val is in hospital. I'll go into more details when I hear from you. If you don't catch me, leave a message and we'll play phone tag, okay?"

Reaching out. Touching someone. (RP)

Dot had been working around the house all day before she decided she'd earned a little break. She retreated to her room and nudged the door closed with her hip, figuring that anyone who wanted in would knock first.

She hunted for her phone for a few minutes before she found it. Sprawled on her back with a pillow under her head, she punched in Val's number, then stared up at the ceiling while she waited for him to answer.

(OOC: framed as a private entry -- for munnic knowledge only)


*sigh* I had thought I was done with helplessness after everything that happened with Satsu. That was a terrible experience. I still feel a little guilty when I think of how I treated everyone, including myself. That's done, and over. It's in the past.


Except, maybe it's not. I'm not going to say that the rest of tonight (last night?) wasn't wonderful, but damnit, Sunnydale. GO AWAY.

I'm not a supergirl, but I sure could I use one now. Actually, what I want is a bunch of them. Enough to find that place and storm it and burn it.


Mrrrgh. I could be more charitable. She didn't have to tell me at all, and if she didn't tell me I'd not be siting here complaining about it and wishing bloody (HAHAHA) murder on the whole damn viper's nest. At least Katie is honest with me, but then, Satsu was honest with me too, and I didn't care for that as much as i thought I did.

I want to go back to sleep -- Ellie, of course, is snoring away on my feet. If we do move (and oh, how I want to!), I will miss walkies the most. I couldn't bear to take her with -- I couldn't do that to Mom, Dad, or Ellie. And it isn't like I'd never see them again..

Hm, sounds like someone's up. I better close this up for now -- I feel better writing stuff like this down anyhow.

Song Of The Month

I am SO slow, but here is MY song for the month.



Rattlin Bones - Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson


Smoke don’t rise
Fuel don’t burn
Sun don’t shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratching at my door
But I cut my hands
And break my back
Draggin’ this bag of stones
Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones

[Shane] Left my home and left my love
[Kasey] Caught on a rusty nail
[Shane] Devil rose up, heavy with gold
[Kasey] My soul’s not for sale
[Shane] Then a holy man in a house of God
[Kasey] He offered me a book of prayer
[Shane] And when I left my home I left my love
[Both] I left my faith back there

Smoke don’t rise
Fuel don’t burn
Sun don’t shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratchin’ at my door
But I cut my hands
And break my back
Draggin’ this bag of stones
Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones

[Shane] Shuttin’ my eyes and hang my head
[Kasey] Darkness makes no sound
[Shane] Climb it up, bottom there
[Kasey] Earth’s on the way back down
[Shane] When a sadness falls on the morning bird
[Kasey] Wonder what the day will bring
[Shane] But I’m shuttin’ my eyes and hang my head
[Both] At least that bird can sing

Smoke don’t rise
Fuel don’t burn
Sun don’t shine no more
Late one night, sorrow come round
Scratchin’ at my door
But I cut my hands
And break my back
Draggin’ this bag of stones
Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones

Till they bury me down, beneath the ground
With the dust and rattlin’ bones

Character Questions

1. What was the best Christmas gift you gave? The best one your received?

In all the hassle, I haven't had a chance to give a lot of gifts yet, so I can't really answer that. I think the best gift I got was the kimono Satsu gave me. I tried it on once I got home, but I haven't really worn it anywhere yet -- it's too nice to just wear around the house..


2. Do you wear a watch? Digital or analog?

I don't wear a watch at all -- I'd be worried about it getting dirty. I sorta learned to tell time by the sun, since I spent so much time outside when i was a kid. I still can estimate pretty well.


3. What is the sickest you've ever been?

I had the chicken pox when I was seven. It was awful! I scratched for weeks!


4. Who was your best friend when you were little? What was he/she like?


My friend Caiti designed sand castles and then left it to me to build them. She hated actually stepping foot in the sandbox, so she'd draw pictures with chalk and I'd be the one that tried to build what she drew. She was the girly yin to my yang.



5. How much do you know about the supernatural? How much would you like to know?

I know more than I did when I moved here, that's for sure! Meeting Satsu was the real trigger, I suppose. She's the extraordinary one that has to deal with all the other extraordinary stuff that wants to hurt normal folks like me. I've got to learn more, if only to be able to keep up and keep myself safe.

Whee! First Day!

That was the fastest interview ever! I hope the dress code doesn't kill me ! I wonder if I'll get to eat free? At least now I won't have to borrow money all the time!
