December is coming

Went home for Thanksgiving. It was nice to be out of the dorm! Oh to be back in my own bed and being able to fall asleep without having to blast my eardrums to drown out my roommate’s snoring. My cap and gown were there which is a relief because the delivery people out where my dad lives tend to just leave stuff by the front door. We mailed out announcements and all that jazz. I’m looking forward to going back home for good, even if entering the real world is scary.

I have also ordered my next doll. I did think about getting a PS3 but then I’d have to buy games and crap so it really wasn’t all that cost effective. I also thought of a PSP (why yes I am a Sony fanboy) but again…games. I suppose I could have bought nothing at all, but this is the last time I can buy something stupidly expensive without the worry of bills. And it is my graduation present to myself. 😀 She should be here when I go back home. She’ll either be waiting for me or will come right before the big day. *crosses fingers*

Katie’s doll is also on her way. If her doll comes next week, mine would be shipping out the following week at the latest, and then that following week will arrive. It’ll be like a month of dolls. Dolls to torture Niklas with. 👿

Short update!

As Kate is already aware I took Ayleena’s head off. I think at first she assumed this was an accident on my part. Not so! I just realized I really need to get with it if I want to send her off to be redone in the faceup department.

I inadvertently picked up more hours at work. I thought Pete just wanted me to work this Saturday, but no he means all Saturdays. And as it turns out I didn’t have to work this Saturday anyway. 😛 But hey, more monies for me!

Man, this semester is just flying on by! November is my last full month of school. I only have a week of school in December and then a week of finals and then: graduation. Oh shit.

The first Phoenix Wright game is on its way to me. Yes! Finally! It only took three (or four) failed attempts on ebay!

Oh and HAHAHAHAHAHAHA at Jan! WordPress 2.3.1 being out all ready! 👿

Plans for Ayleena dollie

While at my hellhole of a job tonight, I distracted myself thinking of what the hell I am going to do with Ayleena’s faceup. As much as I would like to get Elnore, getting the dolls I already have situated takes priority. So. Ayleena. Faceup. Finding a commissioner in DoA is a PITA due to the overloaded marketplace. Add to that that I have “criteria” and it makes it even harder.

In no order of import:

1. Can do slight modification. I love the tender eyes, really I do, but if Ayleena’s eyelids were just a smidgen less hooded I would be overjoyed. Tender Too looks delightfully cute, but Tender Bee-a can look delightfully high on crack cocaine if you look at her the wrong way.

2. Applies eyelashes. I don’t mean that they have to supply them (although the lazy girl in me likes it when they do), but I seem to always find the ones who simply do not put eyelashes on dolls. Ever. I don’t trust myself around something that small with glue, so yeah. Need lashes.

3. In the US. The extra wait time that comes with international shipping plus the issue with customs…yeah don’t want to bother.

4. CAN DO ELEVEN YEAR OLDS!!!! Ok this is obviously most important. Ayleena is a child. Not a MNF Shiwoo hooker. Maybe I am old fashioned, but eleven year olds don’t (or at least their mamas shouldn’t let them) wear purple eyeshadow with black lipstick and heavily tweezed eyebrows. I like children to look like children, kthxbye.

5. Oh. And her eyebrows should match her wig. Since her wig is a natural black from Leeke, I don’t see that as an issue for any faceup artist.

Anyway, I can live without the slight modification for now, but it is a plus. I’d even be willing to ship to Canada if it came down to it. But still, meeting all those points would be ideal. I’m trying to narrow down my top choices so that when I am ready to send her off (not 100% sure when that is, hopefully next couple of months) I can try and get a spot and get it over with.

Right now as it stands I’m looking at armeleia, SDink, and CherryStreet. Armeleia is in the lead for now, followed by CherryStreet. I’m in a bit of honeymoon period with SDink since I just saw a faceup of hers last night that made me stop and stare. So not sure where she will end up in my pecking order as of yet.

This turned out to be a lot longer than I intended. 😐
