    Hello, Dunhaven! Most of you know me already, but for those of you that don't, I'm Remington Steele. I work as a pastry chef at Sweet Nothings and I have a very important announcement to make! Elsie has generously allowed me to host a fundraiser out of the bakery this upcoming week, and I think everyone in town will enjoy it. It's pretty sweet if I do say so myself.

    Cookies Below the Cut )

    Make your sugar cookies a little more guilt-free by knowing that their purchase is going to a good cause! This upcoming Thursday, July 26th, is National All or Nothing Day. In honor of this, 100% of the proceeds from my gourmet glazed sugar cookies are going to charity. You're not reading things wrong.

    100% of the proceeds are going to charity!!!

    What's the breakdown and who are you supporting by purchasing these tasty, uplifting treats?

    50% of every sale will go to the non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms. TWLOHA is a nonprofit movement with the mission to present hope and find help for people who are struggling with depression, self-injury, addiction, and suicide. They have a hand in assisting those in need by providing access to treatment, information, and support.

    The other 50% of all sales will go to the Childhood Domestic Violence Association. Their mission is to create and deploy solutions and tools to increase awareness of childhood domestic violence, to empower adults, to serve as a lifeline for those affected, and to educate adults who experienced childhood domestic violence.

    If you find yourself not in the mood for cookies (but come on, who doesn't always want cookies??) and still wish to make a donation, when you buy your cake, muffin, chocolates, or other assorted delicacies, you're welcome to make an additional donation to either of the charities above. Just tell us which one you want to support and we'll add your donation to the fund!

    Cookies are sold as a minimum of a pair, but will also be packaged in bundles of five and boxes of a dozen. Cookies are available by walk-in or in-town delivery courtesy of a few volunteers for an additional charge. Only a few designs are shown. The messages of all cookies are meant to be uplifting and focused on self-positivity and self-care. Other available designs will include (but are not limited to) "Didn't pretend I was fine when I wasn't," "Remembered to breathe," "Asked for help," and "Took time to Recharge." If you have more design suggestions, I still have a week of baking ahead of me! Mr. Wilkerson has generously donated several pounds of sugar, flour, butter, and eggs to the cause, but if anyone wants to donate more raw materials, they will be taken at the front desk during business hours until end of business on Thursday.

    Short and Sweet Breakdown:
    Charity Event Thursday July 26th at Sweet Nothings
    Buy Cookies, Support Causes

    Of all the literature in the world, this tweet speaks to me most.

    PS: I am on actual vacation from work for the first time since I finished presenting my dissertation and I can't decide if it's blissful or stressful. I checked my email this morning out of habit and was so displeased with myself.

    It has been over a week and I'm still full of OMG about seeing Taylor Swift. This has been a delightful summer.

    helloooo. this is kit with emilia lyon/emma swan. she is lucy's little sister, fresh from across the pond. she will be staying more permanently but, for now, she's been in dunhaven since saturday and has probably met all of lucy's friends and acquaintances. i mean, tbh, annie probably had another cookout for the lyons because that's just the kind of person she is. SO if you'd have reason to show up at annie's place over the weekend, you've probably met emilia! she's nice, but a bit awkward. she's a writer who always has ink somewhere on her hands and fingers. she just recently went through a pretty awful breakup so she's more subdued than she usually is but will be bouncing back in time. her bio is in her journal! i figured most people won't know her, anyway, so it's there if you just want to check her out for curiosity's sake ;)

    people can feel free to question why the city of dunhaven gave a visitor access to the network, too, LOL. since, you know, she hasn't actually told anyone (i.e. lucy, parents, etc) that she's not going back home.

    Just sitting here internally debating how successful, on a scale from Revolutionary War to the Beatles, #LyonsInvadeAmerica2k18 has been. There is no Lyonsmania, yet, but also no one died. If you hear cannons, we're trending toward the wrong end of the scale.

    Hey, fam.

    Violet and I don't think a big shindig is for us, and neither of us are keen on waiting a whole lot longer, so we're just going to do this thing. If you can't make it to the courthouse, that's okay, I think it's going to be a really quick and casual thing, and I get that not everyone's real flexible with their schedule like I am. But Mom wants a big family dinner afterwards, so maybe we can all go out somewhere.

    But anyway, we were thinking a week from today? Bright and early? It opens at 8:30. I can probably move the time around if you can't make it then. I know we'd both like it if our fam could be there. But I get it's a big last minute.

    Hello, Dunhaven. I am surprising my brother by turning up unannounced except for the part where I tell all of you I'm here before I tell him or any of the family. So, hello there. I'm Mateo Rojas, Diego's elder and much more handsome brother.

    Because I've decided that I want to be the burr in his side semi-permanently, I've got a little office leased in town and intend to open up my own law practice. And now that I know there are places where you play great live music, I may not ever leave.

    Have a lovely Tuesday.

    Summer break means more time for myself -- namely performing my own music. It's one of the cool things about being a teacher. I don't know how much time I'd have for myself in another job, and this way I get real time to concentrate on my own shit. Can't do that much during the school year as it is. I've been hitting up open mics and other gigs in the area the past few weeks, when my boy's with his mom.

    This weekend I'll be at the Jazz House in town, Friday and Saturday nights. Then July 27th, I'll be up at Caffe Amouri in Vienna, VA, for their Singer/Songwriter showcase. Starts at 7 pm. I'm going to try to hit up Open Mic in the Woods at Hard Bargain Amphitheater in Maryland on Sunday the 29th, too. Seems like an interesting location, and different from the same sort of clubs and cafes you usually see open mics at.

    Bring a friend or two. It'll be a good time, I promise.

    JACK! Great news, they are now making a dramatization about RBG. It is not a documentary--so you better clear your schedule sometime this Christmas, because we are going.

    Hi, friends! Have a new character. :}

    This is Mateo Rojas, Diego's elder brother. This is also Poe Dameron. Read about him here.

    Mateo grew up in Chicago and pushed himself hardcore. He grant and scholarshipped his way through U of Chicago and Harvard Law. He worked in Chicago as a PD for several years before he felt himself starting to break down (aka he was dreaming of salt planets and rebel alliances and mutinies and stars). His mama told him he needed some peace and quiet and wouldn't it be great to go to a sleepy little down like Dunhaven because there was also family there to feed him and look after him.

    He's going to start a little law practice in town. Be his friend?

    xoxo Gossip Chel

    HI FYI! This evening was Eve's cook out/bbq/get together of champions. She invited "friends" which I like to keep a loose definition of; if you want a someone there, we can probably figure out a connection somehow. She made pretty standard cook out stuff with burgers and hot dogs and also did her macaroni and cheese she likes so much, as well as some kind of pasta salad or a potato salad. She didn't want to go too overboard in case lots of people brought a dish to pass, but also wanted to make sure there was enough food. :3

    Anyway, it was pretty laid back and though it wasn't necessarily a gaming sort of thing, people could play video games in her living room or any of the large amount of board games she has available. Otherwise, there was socialization and good times. She just really wanted all of her favorite people in one place for a little while. And for reference, her apartment looks much like this.

    Feel free to discuss if your character was there or if anything transpired, if you like. :)

    Poor England. (Again.)

    Hey, you. I need to tell you something.

    Damn, there really is no way to say that without it sounding ominous. Sorry about that.

    I have this idea I've been tossing around in my head, and I wanted to see what my lovely patrons thought of it, so:

    There are so many beers out there and we only have so much space, and I like to keep things interesting for everyone. Would anyone be interested in a game where I choose, maybe 4 new beers, and offer them up for a certain amount of time in pints or as a flight, no names attached so you have no idea which brewery they're from or what they're called, and you all can vote on which one is your favorite? And then at the end, the top scorer gets added to our menu? (And then I'll share the names of all of them.) And in the process, you get to try new things in a fun, surprising way.
