Behold, FedEx is speedy with their delivery and thus Felicity and the chocolate glasses arrived yesterday. :D

These are not the best of photos. They were mostly taken for someone who is checking her email on a phone so... yeah.

Meet Felicity )

Note to self: Next time you're in a pissy mood, just make yourself a milkshake. Small or medium works best. Then sit back and enjoy the lack of wanting to murder everyone around you.

hey, slow it down )

The Last Unicorn may have followed me home when I was out this afternoon. *whistles innocently*

For whatever reason, I actually love the hell out of this song. Go figure. Usually I don't give much of a damn about any given A.I. winner/runner-up, but hey. There are exceptions, usually on a song-by-song basis.

Rude. I had no intention of watching Parenthood until Lauren Graham joined the cast. Then I find out that Mae Whitman will be her daughter on the show and dude, I'm sold right there. Because what I needed was another TV show. :P

Jess! )


And now, a rant. I tire of the following:

Person A asks, "Which of these two dolls should I get? Do you have either/both? What do you like/dislike about them?"
Horde answers: Get which doll YOU feel connected to.

Once or twice (especially over the span of an entire thread if it lasts more than one page) is more than sufficient. Otherwise offer your opinion or shut the hell up.

There's a difference between looking for actual feedback (as this scenario is) and asking other people to make your mind up for you (which is when I don't mind the ninety billion "choose your own!" answers). In this case someone wants information. All dolls are not created equal, even in the same line.

My Scene wise, I would push blonde!Delanecy over most of the brunettes because I think the pale skin with the white hair, streaks, and general Delancey attitude is nifty, even if most of the brunettes are frequently prettier.

AG wise, I love my Sam, but I don't think I'd really push anyone to buy a PM Sam if they were at all interested in her not being washed out. Prettiest eyelashes in town, definitely. Lovely hair color? You betcha. But she's washed out and looks a bit sickly at times.
Or Nellie versus Elizabeth, archival be damned? Nellie. Hands down, no questions asked. Prettier eyes, cute hair, freckles, and she's freakin' adorable. Lizbeth tends to look a bit vacant if you're not careful and while her hair is super soft and awfully lovely, she's not Elizabeth really. Same face mold, both blonds of a sort with blue eyes, although different colors in terms of hair and eyes.

Pullips? DUDE. I own like, fifty. I am not the girl to ask about self control. But obviously Princi is the one to rule them all. Oh, you wanted a type 3? I think RIDa is awesome enough that I have two.

And so on. Sometimes you need more than just being told to choose your own adventure. I will, in my own time. I'd just like to know if there's anything to avoid.

Oddly enough, if I remember properly from my time in Pullip-dom, the Pullip people were far more likely to tell you the cons of a certain doll without being all, "You gotta choose your own, girl. Seriously." condescending. They understood that sometimes what made one doll awesome to person A would make her not so awesome to everyone else on the planet.

Tomorrow I think we'll discuss books.

GOD I hate it when people don't give me ideas for presents. It's one thing if I don't ask you. But when I do and you're given time to think (because I truly understand the deer in headlights moment when initially asked) and then you don't say a friggin' word? Grrr!

I like buying people presents. I like the thrill of the hunt sometimes. But I also like guides so that I don't buy you your third copy of your least favorite season of your favorite show because everyone always buys the first season.

So. If I have your wishlist and it needs to be updated, I'd probably update it if I were you. If I don't have your list and you want to see if I'll buy you an Epiphany present or something (let's be honest, I do not run on time) that's why the good internet gods created comments. Yush.

Moving along. [livejournal.com profile] zallia wanted to see the AG shtuff. Sadly, we seem to have moved to some place where it rains only when I look at a camera and think of using it, so... I have nothing new to share, exactly. Just pictures that I don't think I forced on you before. That counts, right?

Jess thinks so. )

Lizbeth demands a do-over. )

misc extras )

And that was stuff.

I have survived another Thursday at work. I hate Thursdays when it's truck and cigs. It's just too much. This should be the last week of that setup for awhile. Next week will apparently be cigs, early breaks, and truck unloading. Bother. BOTHER.

Ah well. Ticked off to hear that apparently at least some jackass at work believes the overnight shift does nothing. That really did hurt my feelings and make me want to kick someone in the goddamned kneecaps. Reason prevailed and pointed out that if big boss-man doesn't agree, that's pretty much all that matters. So. Breathe again, self. Breathe.

A whole ton of new AG stuff was released. 21 "new" or revised dolls. Not a single red or orangish red in the bunch. Fuck your strawberry blonde. I wants red that a toddler can point to and say, "Red!" Not a red that would make said toddler cry because why would you ask a question to which there was no answer? Who would do that crap?

Anyway. I love at least the idea of a couple of them, but I'm all full up on crazy at the moment, so I can eye clothes and shtuff. Of which much of the new stuffs does nothing for me. Yay?

Random things that annoy me:

- White women telling everyone else on the planet that they're being racially insensitive. This doesn't bother me all the time, but pretty much anytime lately I see it online, I want to smack someone even if I do agree with everything else they might say/how they said it. [Which is to say, I agree with everything but the fact that their paler than moi face is staring at me from their av/icon/sig/whatever.] It brings the rage and I don't know why other than... it does.
- I lied. I know exactly why it bothers me. Because in person, I can actually hear the logic and not just hear this patronizing voice in my head basically trying to spell things out in words of the largest size they can possibly think of and still not be called on trying too damn hard, all while telling someone else that their actions are wrong/perceived as being wrong, and will always be wrong. Even if this doesn't happen to be the case. Which happens a fair bit, actually.
- People who waltz around saying things like, "OMG! I totally knew this... but couldn't tell you guys cuz..." Because then some other jackass will come in and say they totally knew, too and at the end of the day it's just annoying as fuck.

Now. We return to things that make me happy.

toys. )

Hmm. I have nails. Alert the media!
