My mom is rocking out to "Here For A Good Time" by George Strait and "Famous in a Small Town" by Miranda Lambert while she's doing the dishes. She starting to scare me...

I'm rocking out, in my chair with headphones in, to the Glee version of "Gives You Hell" on YouTube.

I win.

That version of "Gives You Hell" is definitely going to be on the playlist or soundtrack for Suns and Stars one day. It fits the part after the bit where Dulcie will tell Cassius to leave her and Tristan alone.

ETA: And now I am going to bed. 'Night, guys.

I just arrived in my new home. I am in the Caribbean. My comforter is really ugly and my backyard is a beach. Oh God.

You live in the carribean? Sweet. Say hi tO Jack Sparrow for me. Teeheehee. A beach as a backyard is cool but will probably be tiresome after awhile. I love good ole grass but have fun at your new home

You're American? Then Canada's not a vacation, it's a visit. And Canada is HOT this time of year. Where in Canada?

Oooo. I am both happy and sad for you, Tally.

Happy because I'm sure the Caribbean will be fantastic (even though it may not seem like it right now).

And sad because of the obvious reasons.

Okay, I need some help. My antagonist needs a suitably evil name. I want to build up this character as a classic evil overlord so I can subvert the stereotype later, so she really needs a properly evil name. I'm looking for an actual name, like Voldemort, not a title, like the Dark Lord. I originally had her down as Nightshade, but I'm thinking that's too similar to an organisation in the book called the Nightguard. Any suggestions?
