Had a great time on the cruises. It was so nice getting out of the crappy winter weather for two full weeks. We had mostly great weather, not too hot, great table mates at dinner for both cruises, great food, mostly great stops (didn't like Cozumel).

Itchy @ 08:04 pm
Here's a health moment. If your skin is really, really dry, because it's been really, really cold and dry, don't scratch. I now have an itchy rash on my arms. Shit.
BTW, here's a link to pictures of my new girl, a tan Zaoll Luv. I'm still thinking of a name, but am leaning toward Rishima, which is Hindu for "moonbeam"; I tried to find an Egyptian name, but couldn't find anything I like. I'm still thinking about it though. And I need to figure out what other clothes she can wear, since she's too short for SD13. I may have to have things made for her.

I generally hate winter. I hate the dark the most, snow second (because I have to shovel it). What I especially hate, though, is when the wind comes right after a "dry" snow. I shoveled off our front deck yesterday, and not only did the wind blow it right back, but now it's all hard and crusty. I just hope our tiny snowblower can cut through it, since I know our plastic snow shovels can't.
On the plus side, at least the power didn't go out. I have to say this for ML&P; they can generally keep the power on through this type of crap.
Re dolls, I dodged a bullet with Fairyland. One of the gifts was a Shiwoo multi-head, so I was contemplating getting a Shiwoo PukiFee and a Puki Puki body for the multi-head. However, it's a dreaming vampire, which I have no interest in. I guess I'll just wait until they come out with a proper Shiwoo Puki Puki, which is what I really want anyway. I'm kind of tempted by the new Kanu Puki Puki fullset, but not tempted enough, at least right now.

Got my Christmas displays and tree up. Still need to dress my BJD boys for Christmas, but that can wait until next weekend.( More PicturesCollapse )

Went shopping today with mom and sis. NOT at 5:00, but at the much more sane 7:00am. Stayed away from Walmart, Target, etc. Didn't get any presents, but picked up a couple of things from BB&B that I needed (at 20 percent off). Then went to Michaels and got a little Xmas tree to pose my kitty BJDs with, and some fake snow (the "sheet" kind) to use in my displays.
Tried but couldn't find a white Christmas tree that would work. Instead, I bought a revolving Christmas tree stand, and I'll put up my normal tree. Stand was on sale at Sears, which was nice. Also hit up LA Style (beauty supply shop), since they put everything on at 25 percent off the day after T-giving, and that's where I get my hairspray.
Now back home, and I can start deciding what decorations I want to put where. I'll probably do my smaller, doll-related displays tomorrow, and do the tree Sunday.

WANT! @ 08:27 pm
I have to find a way to get this. Even if I have to eat mac and cheese for two months.

What the hell? Great, a shitty summer, and now it seems to be gearing up to be a long winter.

Fairyland is getting ready to launch their new BJD, the Chic Line, which is a mature 40cm doll. And I have a bad case of grabby hands for Ruo (boy) and Dark Soo (girl). I don't currently have a female BJD (except for a tiny anthro), but I am sorely tempted by Soo (as I was years ago by the 60cm Dark Elf Soo).
I only wish they had been available when I was first buying, since I definitely would have gotten Ruo to be Saint-Germain. However, I like my "big boys" too, and definitely wouldn't rehome them at this late date. Plus there's no way I'd give up my Volks Lucas, since he was the first BJD I fell in love with.
