Does anyone else's family find the need to visit on these days?

It's not that bad! Hey, hey, Celina says-

I can speak for myself Daisy, thank you

I have ten siblings and the only one who came to visit-

Hey, we're here to meet your fi-an-cee-

Are the annoying ones.

[ooc: replies from Saya or siblings, anything goes!]

I don't usually say this, but is anyone else just through with revising? At this point, if I finish the work or not, I feel like I'm not going to learn anything else.

Anyway, who has plans for Quidditch this weekend? Anyone want to go with me?

[ooc: replies from [personal profile] instars - Miss Wallace is a sixth year half-blood Ravenclaw, not on the Quidditch team, feel free to say your character has classes or sees her around school! She also has a bad tendency to get called out for wearing non-regulation shoes, but she cannot help it, she loves her heels!]

[There's crying, here.

It's a woman crying, a woman who does not realize she's being recorded on audio.]

I don't think-

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

[There's no one else speaking, and then the sound of a door opening, and a very low kind of wail - not loud, just insistent.]

The curious wonder of all the new entrees into the City society.

Have a job listing.

Looking for: one mechanic, experience necessary, to assist in the day-to-day operations of a small-scale garage.

One manager, no experience necessary, preferably with an acute interest in women's shoes, to keep things tidy.

And I suppose, one more position, whatever you think you can do, prove your case to me.

I miss Mr. Eames.

Tick-tock, tick-tock.

Time's running out. Someone will end up in trouble here. But not me.

Tick-tock. The question is who will win this? I'm not taking sides. Except my own.

I do have to say one thing.

With everyone gone the City is so quiet.

We are all creatures of habit.

We are even more creatures of pattern. If you deny that, you're lying, even if you don't think you are. Habit is biological. It is an ingrained evolutionary survival skill. It was very carefully bred into us. Habit says we do things every day that keep us alive.

Of course, humans turn that into something more. Humans make habit holy, sacred, religious. I don't particularly ascribe to religion. It doesn't suit me. My shoes are more sacred.

So when you say things like you're comfortable here or you like it here better than home, even with the curses, what you're saying is that your habits have grown familiar here, and you have a routine.

But memory is fickle.

Now, now.

Don't lie.

I know you all think that, at one point or another.

The Garage is closed. So sorry.

However, I'm sure the Blue Light is open if you really need somewhere to congregate. Miss Rosella is more than capable of taking care of all your needs.


Welcome to the City.

[ooc: open to anything!]

Too much noise, too much noise, too much noise-

Even the soundproofing fails.

Everything fails

Too loud too loud too loud!

What's that song?

That and rings that clash with everything. Seeing home wasn't really enough to keep trying them on was it?

What did you see?

I usually warn people away from my cars.

Today I took it a bit further - I just locked the Garage.

Hello, visitors. I hope you had a nice day.

[ooc: have at it! Anything goes]

Twenty-eight is the second perfect number and the third Granville number. It's the atomic mass of silicon, the fourth magic number in physics. It's the number of days in a moon cycle.

It's the number of years I've been alive.

People have been following me.

I don't wear T-shirts.

[She does not sound pleased]

This one doesn't match anything. I will not be coming in today. Shop is closed. Go somewhere else.

The City could at least make this curse stylish.

[ooc: she won't be seeing anyone in person today because her shirt reads: I killed my father and ate him and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.]

[It's already dark, almost midnight when this video starts. There's a wire between the Warehouse and Building Three, suspended from the roof. Saya's boots are just visible in the video, high heeled and clearly belonging to no one else.

There's the sound of wind, too, as she steps out, heel on the wire. She doesn't step all the way so her weight is on it. Just part of the way.]

It's not enough.

[Here is a video at the beach. Saya's on a towel, while she is wearing a bikini all that's really visible are her bare shoulders.]

I'm told that vacations are good for people. That everyone needs a vacation. So I decided to take one: the Garage will be closed this week. Eames already took the week off as a holiday, so everyone else, enjoy yourselves.

The beach is relatively nice this time of year. It's warm.

[And she just molted so she's appreciating the warmth even more]

I know some people prefer the mountains, though. To get away. What are you getting away from? I'm on one but I don't think I quite understand vacations. Don't people choose to do what they like?
01 July 2012 @ 01:04 pm
Visitors. It's not as bad as everyone seems to think, except for the noise.

I'm hungry, does anyone want to come over for dinner?

Just don't touch the cars.

[ooc: anyyyyything goes! action in the garage]

And dirt.

And dust.

Honestly didn't we get enough of that in February? You were all very excited to be in the desert again. Last time all I heard was whining.

In the meantime, I have a question.

What's your family like?

There are a few matters on the agenda today. First off, I hope not too many people managed to suicide themselves off the side of a building while leaping towards a ledge in the middle of a backspring. I'm sure it looked...well, actually, I don't care how it looked, it would just have been a stupid, wasteful way to die.

Next: I always seem to be in need of extra help. But I've been short-staffed, and I'd like to hire another mechanic. Experience necessary, preferably with cars but I can train if you have mechanical experience with some form of engine.

Robert, we should probably talk.
