Girlin' it up!

I've now got Hunger Games nails to go with my Hunger Games hair! I was just going to peruse it in stores, but once Deanne started getting all excited about it, I of course, had to follow.

(Love that site name, btw) So glad I went last night because apparently even in our small, not-so-well-read-or-up-on-trends town, people had already been asking at Sally's about them and two colors were gone when I got there. But I managed to snag the two Deanne wanted (one of which that I also want, Stone Cold, which I will have to track down a bottle for myself) and Riveting and Smoke & Ashes for me. I've never actually worn black nail polish outside of Halloween, so I thought I'd have a go of it. I don't see as much of the green and blue sparkles in it as I had hoped, so it's something I would have passed on with a do-over. But the Riveting, I'm not even a fan of orange, but man, I am sold on this color. Lots of brightness and lovely sparkles. Now I just need to grow them out because my poor no-nails do not do them justice. Plus I want to try magnetic polish!

And I think I meant to post about the hair, because it turned into a 3-4 hour saga, but it's red with black on the ends so that it looks burned up. Girl on fire and all that. :) I'm not like a supernerd about the books, but enough of a fan that I'm jazzed up for the movie and stuff surrounding it.

I'm not much for Dals, but if any of you are, you can get Lipoca for $50, plus around $7 shipping, here:

Just use the code leap2012 in the checkout! Wish they had more though!

Well well well, what do we have here...

Skull Shores Aquired!

Trolling stores FINALLY paid off! Of course probably spent more in gas than shipping would have cost *cough*, but there's just something special about finding them on the shelves, isn't there? This was all they had so I couldn't be choosey. My only issue is Abbey's fangs look hella weird, but I need to look around and see if that's the norm. Camera batteries just died so can't pic those just yet. I was really hoping for Sweet 1600 since I'm not super keen on swimsuit dolls, but Gil! More Abbey! Gorgeous Lagoona! So it'll do to bide the time. I'm just worried that if I see them at TRU in Albuquerque next week I'll be tempted to overpay for them intsead of waiting. And now CAM's already out?? Geez! Of course good old Target had put out a new case...of the very first line? And Ghoulia? I have no idea.

Oh and I don't think I ever got around to TORALEI! It was a weird twist of fate in that we went across the store to self-check after the long line at the garden center and mom called me over to look at some weird dolls in the holiday aisle and right between two of those all by her lonesome was Toralei! I was like OMG THAT'S THE ONE I WAS LOOKING FOR!! and mom was like "oh, that wasn't even the one I was pointing out." :P So kismet, karma, ka, whatever was in my favor!

And you may notice an extra Ghoulia. No, it wasn't just to wipe the case out and try to prompt them into actually keeping the shelves stocked. [ profile] jemmifire, she's yours if you still need her!

2011 Livejournal Holiday Wish List

[ profile] snarky_imp posted this in her LJ and I think it sounds like a lot of fun. I know there's people on my friends list I'd love to do something for, but never know what they already have or might like or anything like that. So! Here we go:

Step One
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you’re comfortable with) to your LJ/blog. The post should contain your
list of up to 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I’d love a Doctor Who icon that’s just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your entry, or link to this post (it’ll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friendslist (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here’s the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you won’t use—or even know where you could get someone’s dream purebred Basset Hound for free—do it.
- You needn’t spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn’t to put people out, it’s to provide everyone a
chance to be someone else’s holiday elf—to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not—it’s your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you’ll have the joy of knowing you made someone’s holiday special.

My Wish List

1. New layout for my Livejournal. I hadn't thought about this before, but seeing [ profile] missmollymayhem's new one has made jealous. I think green would be nice (Sheamus?) but since not too many wrestling fans here, I'd be happy with anything semi-personal.

2. New anime or video game music I might like. So out of the loop, but feel like listening to Jpop and need some recommendations.

3. Motivation to work on projects. Any or all of them. :(

4. Things to cheer me up at work. To put on my desk or by my computer or magnetic or artwork...?

5. Miniature versions of things.

6. Ear cuffs. These are out of fashion, but I don't feel like getting more piercings and need to deck out my ears more. I like the ones with chains going down to one or two pierced holes. Even links to decently-priced cool ones would be appreciated!

7. This: While I appreciate the Batman villain his character has turned into to, I sorely love the bags and face mask.

8. New purse. I like long straps I can wear cross-body and not a large bag, but not too small, either. I love the one I got at Target, but it's got mystery stains on the back and is fraying.

9. I love surprises. I also love anything people make themselves.

10. Harry and David Raspberry truffles. They used to sell them down here at Christmas, but I haven't seen them for years.

I hope to see more lists from other people as well! :D If you need contact info, just PM me since I'm leaving this public.

Stupid Disney Store!

Ship my dolls!!!!! >:( >:( >:(

And apparently there's an ebay curse going around since the poster I waited two weeks for was wedged so tightly into the tube that when it get bent during shipping, it totally ruined the poster, too. Grrrr!

EDIT: Coworker just pointed out Monday was a holiday. I forget that since the city doesn't acknowledge it as such. Still Tuesday was a whole business day to get it done. :*( *sniffle*

Is now mine!!!!!!! Mom had to go to Target tonight, but then someone posted they found here at theirs and yup, two of her, one of Lagoona 2.0 and Spectra! Got both of the Abbeys in case snarky_imp's lames out on her and I'm not totally happy with Lagoona's lips so may seek a replacement in Alb. Mom was joking I had no reason to go up there now, but I still need that fearleading set. ;)

WWE Raw is going to be in Albuquerque on the 23rd. I wish wish wish I could go since I have no idea when I'll have another chance to. Unfortunately, I think Daniel's the only person I know who would be willing to go with me and I don't think it would go well, plus he'll be working. Aaargh, such bad timing.

god dammit

So there was this super sweet cat hanging outside mom's house. Trilly meows, climbed right up on your chest and unfortunately followed you everywhere even to your car. Apparently my dad ran him over this morning, but didn't kill him, but he hobbled in to the bush so I need to go over at lunch to coax him out to be put to sleep. I had actually been hoping mom would take him in since Misty had passed and she'd gotten him fixed and we were giving him medicine and now...this. I know I need to stop getting so attached to cats, but goddamnit, at least it could have been spaced out. And you'd think we'd have built up more good karma by taking care of every one that comes along.

Dead Tired is complete! Kmart had the Clawdeen set, though both had a wonky fang, I at least had a choice. Yay! Nothing at Target or Walmart though. Boo.

Kmart Part 2

Okay, so went back on my lunch break for the Moxie Teen. Though with it being a busy Saturday, I was pretty sure she would be gone. Nope! Still there, so I grabbed her up. I thought it was Bijou, but didn't realize until I checked out that she's Arizona. I just saw dark complexion and light hat and got confused. Though now that I'm looking on Amazon the $17 isn't that good of a deal, so I may try to take her back, though I'm not sure if they'll return clearance stuff. :(

Anyhow, after grabbing her, I looked up and down the aisle for other MTz, and was sad to note that there was no new MH stuff and the same ones were still there from yesterday. I decided to go look at Strawberry Shortcake the next aisle over since I had kind of rushed out having Daniel with me. Well at the end of the aisle was some weird pseudo-clearance stuff with hand-printed signs and then on the bottom shelf..."Huh, that's a little odd. Big black boxes in the girls' section...*click!* *breathing speeds up* I see a window...LAAAGOOOOONNNNAAAAAA!!" The Hydration Station!! They actually had 2 of them! I got the one with the better eyes after I calmed down, though Kmart's Rewards shit STILL isn't working despite spending more there in the last two days than I ever have before. But still! Hydration Station! So fun to say! It lights up! Hooray!

I am now a Gladapple Pineapple!!

MH Goodness!

I had some luck yesterday! Apparently I just need to take Daniel shopping with me. First was Walmart and I was swearing and hulk-smashing the shelves, when I somehow noticed the box laying on top wasn't actually DotD Frankie and was actually wave 2/School's Out Frankie! I'm wondering if I've missed them before because Cleo and Clawdeen also both look similar to the old dolls since they're keeping the same color palette clothing-wise for every doll it seems, but since the box is different, I'm thinking not. Sucks that I missed out on Spectra, though. Nada at Target once again and they hadn't marked down the clearance anymore.

But later in the afternoon, I went to get my mail from mom and almost didn't, but decided to drag Daniel to Kmart. And to my shock, they had new stuff! It took our Kmart forEVER to get ANY MH stuff and I hadn't seen anybody posting that they'd found their stuff there, only Target/TRU/Walmart. But looks like they had just put out the Dawn of the Dance 2 dolls since there were 2 Ghoulias, 2 Lagoonas and 1 Deuce so I got my pick of the girls, plus they had the Day at the Maul fashion set! Woooo Hoooo! It was getting hard to resist TRU and Amazon, but I try to shop locally when I can (my taxes do go back into my paycheck essentially), plus to ensure against any wonk-eyes. They also had a Moxie Teenz Bijou on clearance which I'm hoping is still there when I go back at lunch. And maaaaaybe new MH stuff to put out? *fingers crossed* But even not, I got enough to tide me over for awhile. Poor Daniel, I told him about the spider girl and cat girl 3 times over the last 2 days since no one else would listen. *^_^

OH!! And I got my ship notice for SDCC Ghoulia!! I was so afraid I might miss out even though I made sure the one I bought said 100% guaranteed to arrive. Squee! I love her fashion pack with the tiny action figure. Going to be hard to decide to debox her or leave her pristine though...

Asking for some votes!

If you have a minute, can you vote for Hale, please? Deanne wrote the defense, so we're trying to help her get to the next bracket since they changed and won't let us spam the voting anymore to just once per computer. *^_^

(no subject)

After 5 attempts at trying to lie, finangle and talk their way onto a computer, I got to kick out two young boys for swearing and flipping me off. What is with kids today!! I had to kick a myriad of sisters/cousins/godknowswhat of theirs off as well for using their parents' cards, though at least they just gave me dirty looks. AAAAAGH, ready to be off this desk! Summer makes people crazy!! Get them back in school, please!

The Inferno

Well, it seems our whole damned state is going to burn to the ground. Don't know if you out-of-staters have seen much in your news, but I've heard we have 44 different fires on the ground right now. The most pressing is the giant one near Los Alamos that's set to surpass our previous largest fire and oh yeah, might take out some plutonium-enriched trash while it's at it. Thankfully, I'm downwind of that crap, since they've been testing weapons and dumping crap out there that they won't even tell you about, so god-only-knows what's actually in the fumes already. I'm hoping that it rains before something starts out here since we've already had a lightning storm w/out actual moisture, but I'm mentally going over evacuations just in case. :(

And I was planning to go to Socorro this weekend, but one started directly in between our two cities. Started on poor old Sam Donaldson's ranch. That's where that boy killed his whole family that were taking care of the property. And despite most everywhere else banning fireworks for painfully obvious reasons, our stupid city is allowing them to proceed. So now I'm also worried about leaving my house to become a smoking rubble thanks to stupid neighbors. *sigh*

Anyhow, I took some pics of our progressing hellscape.


Not clouds! That's smoke!


Tainting the sun an unholy red color. Neat!


And here comes the apocalypse!


Feel free to stare directly at it. >:D
