I am so incredibly happy.

I can't really get into why. But I'm just going to say things feel right for the first time in a long time.

OMGWTF SHE CHOPPED ALL OUR HAIR OFF

NOT EVEN JUST THE ENDS LIKE SHE WAS ORIGINALLY THINKING

IT'S SHORTER THAN SHOULDER LENGTH

NOW I HAVE TO WEAR THE DAMN WIG AGAIN

*goes into crankypants mode, pouts*

What do you do when you realize you are not the person you thought you were?

There's been some sort of... shift inside here. I mentioned in my personal journal a few months ago that Beth and I were somehow slipping into each other - and I was deathly afraid we were going to integrate.

Well, I think parts of me have integrated with her. Just parts. The rest of me is here. The core Em that came here in the first place. But some parts have merged with Beth. And I haven't quite figured out exactly what I'm left with here. (Aside from lacking a penchant for swearing my face off - Beth has definitely taken that from me, haha) And some parts of me have just been... released into the ether, it feels like. Parts that have been let go of both of us, for our own sakes.

Beth has become more assertive lately. A little more fierce. A little louder. More comfortable in her own body, so to speak. She feels like I used to, she says. It's strange. We've both changed.

To put it really simply... I feel like the Em from the books, somewhat.

And I also feel very, very confused.

Yeah. I've been too quiet lately, both inside and outside of headspace. I need to get my ass on IM more and just talk to people.

Mostly I've been just sitting around, crocheting and watching True Blood, and living an entirely too damn quiet life. S'probably a good thing after all the drama bullshit that's happened so far this year. I need to recharge. Spend time with good people, instead of toxic ones.

So that's what I'm gonna work on doing.

Well, that and increasing our pony collection. XD

Doing some "get your frustrations out" crocheting. I'm turning my crankiness into a scooter seat cover so our ass doesn't roast when riding in this ridiculous summer heat. It's going to be rainbow colored like the NyanCat sticker we've got on the side of Scooterlou.

AND HOLY HELL it is so good to have Scooterlou back. I hope she never ever has to go to the shop again. EVER. I promise I'll take such good care of her. I missed riding her so damn much. SCOOTERLOOOOOU.

In other news, sunburn has faded to a nice tan. Torrin is forbidden from picking out our clothes again, haha.

So, Beth was doing some research, out of boredom and curiosity, on the origins of her maiden last name. And in old English, it means "wood of the black wolf".

For those've you who've been following me on my other journal, you'll see while this made me make squeaky noises of excitement, hahahaha. (And for those who haven't, I like wolves. And identify with them pretty strongly. I'm no werewolf or anything, though. Just fierce, no-nonsense, kickass Em.)

Other than that, I've got nothin' for you guys. My life's been boring. I came forward while we were walking earlier, due to a creeper following us around the next apartment complex over and us needing someone with some ass-kicking tendencies to lead the way, but other than that, I've just been in the back mostly, watching. And healing. Yeah. Nothing exciting.

OW OW OW

THANK YOU TORRIN FOR DECIDING THE BEST SHIRT TO WEAR OUTSIDE TODAY WAS A TANKTOP

Fuck ow. We got a sunburn thanks to Torrin's "oh it's so sunny out I want to spend all day outside" thing earlier. Beth had drinks with her friend, and since the buses are running on their summer schedule (read: their ridiculous schedule where buses on the route we use most only run once an hour instead of once every 10 minutes), we ended up walking home from downtown. And ended up all sorts of crispy. I mean, it's not horrible, it doesn't hurt to wear a shirt, but it is annoying. And our back itches. O_o

Husband's off getting some new aloe vera gel for us, since the old stuff doesn't seem to be doing much - and it is four years old, so maybe it's time to get fresh stuff. We're happy he's doing at least that for us - we'd do it ourselves, but I don't trust his scooter, and Scooterlou, our faithful steed, is in the frigging shop.

Maybe a scooter ride will put the husband in a better mood. He's been a cranky ass since we got home. I mean, he's got good reason, yeah, but honestly, he needs to stop dwelling on what's wrong with life and focus on the good. (But will he listen to us? Probably not.)

Oh wait, he brought flowers. I think that's a peace offering. And he apologized for being "a bear", as he calls it. And brought chocolate ice cream.

Okay, apology accepted. XD

Okay. I'm here. There needs to be more coffee in this morning. *rubs eyes sleepily*

I bet some of you are wondering why we moved to using this journal again, especially since so many of us have our own journals.

Well, I've noticed that our inner House Gembell, the one we retreat to when we're not forward or even hovering around the edges of things, has been... empty. I dunno where everyone goes - I personally don't ever go far away from front, it's just how I work, but I want everyone to feel like the House is a place we can all go to when we're not front. Where we can all spend time together. And I think using this journal, all five of us, is gonna help build that up.

Granted, Ellie will go where she wants when she disappears, and Nina frigging flip-flops UNIVERSES when she visits, so for the time being, the main occupants are going to be myself, Torrin, and Beth, but so what? We all need to spend more time together. :D

One of us may post more about the House when we're more... awake. Right now, though, coffee needs to be consumed.
