Oh Scruffy

Friends Only

My daughter just went out to the movies with her friends, dressed like a baby prostitute. Of course, she informs me that this is fine because she is fourteen and she can handle herself. That might be true, but I plan to deal with anyone who tries to handle her, I'll tell you fucking what.

And Caleb has now decided he is terrified because someone at karate class told him there's a skeleton inside him. Don't ask me how he managed to avoid this knowledge until now, but he seems to believe that his skeleton has it in for him and it's got a mind of it's own which it will use to rip through his skin and attack him. It's really quite morbid. He's cowering with Aly while she tries to reassure him that his bones are not made for mutiny. Meanwhile, Anna seems to be stealing all of Lydia's baby prostitute clothes and trying them on, and that just reminds me that soon I will have two teenage girls... What in the world am I going to do then!?

Oh, and this afternoon, Little Thomas tried to eat my watch. Thankfully, he did not succeed, though Anna continues to find it amusing to make time travel jokes...

Sometimes, being a father, all you can do is stand back and watch as it unfolds, occasionally uttering 'huh'. Not that I would ever trade it. Not on your life.
Time makes no saints

To Those in the Know

I was trying not to write it today, but avoidance never helps, does it?

Thomas says they took him to get to me, Stephie because she was with him, and Scarlett because she found them. Apparently they knew I would come for him, but by the time I did, no one of rank or importance was there to action whatever plot they had for me. Which is fortuitous, but worrying. Because when they took Thomas, they did not expect to get so lucky. Apparently they tried to burn him for heresy, but as we all know, his particular situation means that his body can withstand being burned, even if it causes pain. He can, basically, keep on burning forever. Or until he disappeared. And they managed to film this very phenomenon and send it to the Vatican.

They now, once again, believe me to be the Antichrist, and apparently Thomas is my lover or handmaiden, or whatever in the fuck. They went after my family, so they know they can't die. ...most of them. And they have gone after Thomas.

We need to be careful. Again. What joy.

Thomas says they repeated the performance for an Archbishop. He didn't catch the name, he just saw the robes. And after that, they left him burning until Samson and Svetlana got him down. And that was nearly a day and a half.
