AG rAGnarok officially kicks off today with the archival/retirement announcement of the best friends line.

Ivy, Ruthie, and the NOLA ladies, Cecile & Marie-Grace, are all being sent off to the archive this summer. I'd imagine that even if they linger, they'll be yanked from stores, catalogs, and online by the time BeForever begins on/around August 28.

Pics or it didn't happen? )

And with that my collection now contains exactly one doll not archived/retired/or set to be one of those. And she's been customized...

I'm ticked that Ivy got the short end of the stick since she was introduced but I do hope that maybe they'll take the time to do something for an Asian Historical instead of being able to point to Ivy and say, "Look. Done."

The interesting thing about this archival is that none of these dolls has been around for even ten years. Ivy is the oldest in that she was introduced in 2007. Ruthie came out in 2008 just before Samantha was archived, and the NOLA girls appeared in 2011.

This also wipes out the grey eyes in the line with Ruthie, and MG's eyes are unique as well.

I do hope we'll be getting another doll one day soon with MG's mold as I think it's adorable and works very well outside of her Meet hairdo.

Cecile, you shall likely forever remain one of the two dolls whose Meet outfits I find beautiful on their own. Stay strong, my CeCe. I love you dearly.

New stuff (likely not much) coming Thursday.

Remember how I said I bought Kit's new outfit/accessory set? Well, it came yesterday and today Ruthie and I cracked into it. Sadly, the light was fading but I think you'll get the general idea.

Spoilers: ♥

Kit's new outfit is totally Ruthie's. )

Finally we have Kit's Summer Dress, which is going for $32. Because it's historical and apparently on the chopping block, we'll go all out with the links and pictures.

This dress came out in 2011 and at the time my immediate reaction was, "Kit would never voluntarily wear that. Ever. Have you not read the books? Even movie!Kit would say no, and she allowed a lot more than book Kit ever would have. No."

Last one for now. )

I apologise in advance for the wonky color of these photos. The day I took them it was overcast and then the next however many days it rained and by the time it was sunny, I'd moved on. :P

You might recall I gushed about my last AG order and promised pics. Well, I eventually deliver. Maybe? I tried anyway.

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!

I was bored. So to counteract the lingering feeling of hate yesterday brought, I'll bore you senseless with my dolly love. MUHAHAHA!

I could do with a drink right about now )

How to assemble a doll bed in five easy steps. )

Really, step five is the most important of all.

It came from Bob, the Desk, part 2!

Tales From Bob, the Desk, part 2 )

And that was Bob presents the American Girls and a pumpkin. Woo!

So. I waffle on my AG love depending on that time of year, the position of the moon and stars, and how often they randomly send me a catalog. Whenever Mattel took over, they decided to stop sending them at regular intervals, and I can't say I blame them as I'll go years without buying anything, and the only time I ever went slightly crazy in terms of buying was when I bought my Girl of Today, her bed, and assorted outfits, and even that had problems. This is not the time for that story, however.
Anyway, when Cass presented her roadtrip idea, I was all set to tell her the same thing I always tell them. "No." Particularly with her leading with her Cabbage Patch idea. But then she said Atlanta [I was still saying no] and the AG store. To which I had to reconsider. Realistically, I have very little desire to return to NYC to hit their store, and Chicago will forever be tainted by that news story I read about the family who went to the store only to come home on the wrong train and it was this horribly gruesome account of the aftermath, and yet all I could think was, "Dude, what a way to ruin your kid's trip to the AG store. That place must be jinxed." And I've no desire to hit the LA store. Just... no.
Obviously, I went on the trip. This... is that story. Muhahaha!
Not Dial-up Friendly, even though I am dialup. Whee! )

That's just the AG section. Other pictures to come as I get less twitchy.
