[News: Capital]

[Monday, fliers go up around the Capital for a Valentine's Day Masquerade, to be hosted by a wealthy local resident at the Natural History Museum. The museum, which has been rented out for the evening of February 9th for the private affair, promises to be turned into a wonderland. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door, and masks and appropriate attire are required for admittance. An assortment of masks will be available at the museum for those attendees not bringing their own.]

I sort of got ahold of a really nice car at the yard, what do you say to a totally legal joyride?

[info]sonataind in [info]repose

public.

I wake and feel the fell of dark, not day.
What hours, O what black hours we have spent
This night! what sights you, heart, saw; ways you went!
And more must, in yet longer light's delay.
With witness I speak this. But where I say
Hours I mean years, mean life. And my lament
Is cries countless, cries like dead letters sent
To dearest him that lives alas! away.

I am gall, I am heartburn. God's most deep decree
Bitter would have me taste: my taste was me;
Bones built in me, flesh filled, blood brimmed the curse.
Selfyeast of spirit a dull dough sours. I see
The lost are like this, and their scourge to be
As I am mine, their sweating selves; but worse.


- Gerard Manley Hopkins

It has been a month since the last poem, so here I am again. Twenty days into the new year and I'm not sure what to make of it. Of course, it is too early to tell.

If someone has a recommendation for a horror movie, preferably playing at the theatre, I would appreciate it.

[For over a year, Fridays had meant check-in meetings with her social worker, a group meeting, and testing to make sure she hadn't relapsed. But Marta had known, with the new year, that those would be ending soon. Her year in the program was coming to a close, and there was something inside her that was excited to not have to make the weekly trips into the city.

That wasn't what happened though. The Friday that was supposed to be her last went how it always did - group meeting, drug testing - but during her meeting with the social worker, where she was supposed to sign all the forms or whatever needed to be done, something else happened instead. Instead, there were extension papers to sign. Reasons listed included her stay in the hospital, missing two check-ins, and (which she thought seemed unfair though she didn't say anything about it) the fact that she hadn't held only a single job through her entire year, as stated. That she was being granted a bit of leniency, but she still needed to fulfill that part of the program. So she'd need to keep her current job for at least a year, while still maintaining the rest of the program's requirements.

She didn't quite remember the rest of her meeting, and her trip back to Repose was a bit of a blur. But she knew that she wasn't supposed to have been given the job in the first place - that it had been a mistake. She was sure that they must have told Derek first, but she also felt the need to say something. And while she usually tries to be better about her typing when talking to her boss, she can't quite manage it at the moment.]

hi. did they call you? i'm sorry i dodn't think they'd do that. i think its' ok as long as i stay at the same place so whatever you want to do, its' okay. if you were waiitng for the year to be over before you got a manager i think you can still getone and it'll be fine as long as i can do something there for you. i can keep clenaing at least? and other stuff. [...] whatever you need.

[Because of course she never actually found someone to come in for the cleaning - she's just been doing it herself the entire time. And she adds the last part in case it helps. She's done "whatever was needed" before.]

Every place I've ever been, I've had a favorite take-out place. Not picky on cuisine. Mexican, Italian, Thai, Japanese. But I've had a favorite take-out place, not too greasy, no guys named Shane in the kitchen making noodles with unwashed hands, you catch my drift?

Got to find a new spot. Looking for recommendations. And if you're named Shane, sorry. Bad experiences with a Shane.

Hey, kid. Grown past my shoulder yet?

Have you ever wondered the real reason for a house "settling"? Want to learn the truth about an urban legend? Maybe you've experienced the horror of sleep paralysis and want to confront the hag on your chest. Well now you can!

I'm Pippin. I have extensive experience in paranormal investigation including having started a PI club. Repose is the perfect place to hone those investigative skills, and learn new ones! There's already a small group started and now I'm extending the invitation to anyone interested to join us! Hit me up here for more info!

[Ren & Archie]
SO, masquerade planning meeting! Ren said we can use the cafe so we just need the when.

[Ragnar]
Hey! Fire pit? I was thinking tonight if that's ok.
