doll meme, just because

I have seriously not felt like doing anything for a while now. Various things have been going on, and I just don't feel like talking about them, even though I do. (I guess it's more like, I wish I could sit down with someone and talk over a cup of coffee or something, but since I don't have any friends, it's impossible. But I certainly don't feel like writing about things because it's just too much of an effort.)

So instead of doing anything productive, I'll waste my time with doll-related BS.

The new boy finally has a name, by the way. Now I just need to work on his look, and I can properly introduce him.
(Though I realize I still haven't given Decca a real introduction yet either. Oops...)

Well, would you look at that.

After forever, I finally got time to do another story. =D

Just in case you were wondering what it's like living with a demi-god and a vampire.

Updating

I feel like I haven't posted anything meaningful in a while. I blame work.

No, really.

I don't know if I've mentioned here, but my current work situation really blows. Like, remember how I had (literally) three times more work than any of the other native teachers last year? Yeah, it's that all over again. Thankfully it's not quite three times more, but once again, as usual, I have more classes than any of my co-workers, and every time I turn around I'm getting more classes added in to my schedule. I'm now working six days a week, since one of the other teachers here up and left to move to Tokyo (and in return for abandoning her students, she got promoted to Student Care Coordinator - but that's a rant for another day), and some of her classes were pushed onto me as overtime. Then they go and add more kids classes to my schedule. All after I already had more classes than anyone else. And no, nobody else is getting more classes forced onto them. Only me. And every single day, everyone else will have at least one hour - usually more - where they have nothing to do, except me. I don't get a break. I don't even have enough time to eat while at work.

My motto the past few months has been "I don't want to be justified in my anger." Meaning, as much as I don't like my tendency to flip out over nothing, I've come to think it's preferable to having a legitimate reason for being so pissed off all the time. However, in this case, I am justified.

Two of the other native teachers here, of their own accord, have gone to personnel and told them what's being done to me is bullshit. I didn't ask them to, I haven't even complained openly to anyone, but they saw it, and stood up on my behalf, because even they see that this is a really shitty thing to do to someone. It's not just me overreacting; other people are seeing it.

Last week the staff informed me that I would have to do some special lessons this week, and the other night one of the other teachers messaged me saying he would do them for me. And he did, and I'm extremely grateful that for once someone was willing to step up for me.

I keep telling myself things will get better. I can only hope so.

So that's the work front.


On the social front, I amazingly had a friend visit me. It was odd, because this friend has straight up said she wouldn't ever come here (she lives in Tokyo). This friend has traveled all over the fucking world to attend seiyuu events, but absolutely refused to visit a friend just a few cities away. And yes, I have visited her in the past, in Japan as well as when we both lived in California. So when she out of the blue wrote me saying "I need to visit you," I have to admit, I was suspicious. We had a lovely, fun day-and-a-half of hanging out, of course, but I can't help but wonder at the sudden change of heart.


As for games, a co-worker gave me an extra copy of 'Dragon Quest IX', and I've been playing that almost every moment I'm not at work. It's rather fun, and I especially like that the characters are my own created characters. As usual, I become addicted to anything I can customize.


In story news, I posted all of 'Between the Two' over at AFF.net, so if anyone was actually reading it, it's there. I don't know if I'll finish posting it here as well. It seems a bit pointless now, and is a bit more work. I think aside from short side-stories, I'll probably just post everything over there from now on, and link it here.

Which, with that said, I've also posted the first part of the thing I wrote for NaNoWriMo there as well. It's pretty much totally un-beta'ed, as I'm really no good at self-editing, and decent betas don't exist. But... There it is. (And I usually update on Tuesdays, my only day off, for anyone who wants to follow it for some odd reason...)

Over the holiday, I was grabbed by several side-story ideas. I started writing one in one notebook, but didn't take that notebook with me to Kyoto. In Kyoto, while waiting for the bus, I started working on another story on the iPad, but am currently a little bit stuck with that, and only seem to work on it when I have absolutely nothing else to do. Then, a few weeks ago, when I was going out to eat I figured I'd do some writing on the other story I'd started, but when I got to the restaurant I realized I'd brought the wrong notebook. .>_> So I started a new one in the notebook I had with me. ... In conclusion, I'm currently working on three short stories at the same time. I hate when I do that.


And finally, on the dolly front, I'm enjoying the new boy very much. I know I've been sharing pics of him on Facebook and Tumblr, but since I haven't introduced him here, I will. So...

Meet Clay!




Yes, he's that Clay, and no, I don't currently have any plans to get a Nicholai. (But if something perfect is released.............)

Clay's head is a smidgen too big for his shorty short body, which kind of suits him, and I'm absolutely in love with him. Totally enthralled. I want to spoil the bejeezus out of him.

And in dolly story news... I've been in absolutely no mood to take any photostory pictures for months now.

I blame work.





I have no reason to use this icon, but I'm going to anyway.




Edit- Ooooooooooh~ I just realized it's Tachi's birthday. Six years! Happy Birthday, Lovie. ♥

Yaay!

New boy is here!! And he's super flippin' adorable! X3 X3
But no pictures until he has a proper wig and eyes.

It's the day after my vacation, and I never got a shipping notice. I still have a few days left of the holiday break to play with him. It's the most perfect surprise New Year's arrival ever. X3

plotting and planning and pining

Aha... I've officially moved on from saying "When the doll comes..." to "When ---- comes...." I think he just became real. ;P

But anyway.

I was able to buy ---- despite him being limited because I was saving up for ------- and -------, but I guess they'll have to get put off again, for the third time. Surely they will be cursing Rook and Meili when they find out when they were supposed to be here...

So yeah, because I was saving up for others, I had the money in my account, and that's how I got him. But I didn't buy any clothes, wig, or eyes for him when I ordered, because I didn't want to use all the extra money in my account, since it's very troublesome to get money into that account (we're talking my American account here, which is the only account linked to paypal). And why use all the money in that account, when I can just go to actual doll shops here? =D

So the plan is, when ---- comes, we're going to head down to the Dolk store in Akihabara. They let people try their stuff on in the store, so I'll be able to find a nice wig for him, and know it looks good on him before I buy it. And I'll buy him some nice eyes, and probably an outfit of his own, too (he'll be roughly the same size as Luke, so he won't have to be naked when he first gets here, but he deserves something of his own ::nod nod:: ).

His ETA should be around the end of December/beginning of January.


And this is the closest I have to a 'Do Want' icon. XD

looking for you

Well, I've gone and done something I'm sure you all thought I would never do.

I ordered a doll with no intention of ever putting him in the photostories.
I'll buy him cute clothes and take tons of pictures of him, but he'll never be on the dollie website. He'll have a name and a character, but won't be in any (official) stories. He'll be shelf-fodder, only there for me to look at and admire, and I'm ok with that.

I can't wait for you to meet him.

the kiss

Writing what is essentially an extensive backstory for a character I've had for a while is actually kind of fun. I'm finding out all kinds of things I've never known before.

For example, it's very highly likely that this was actually Antonio's first kiss. It makes it just a little bit sweeter. =3

people's issues

Wow.

Some chick on Tumblr's BJD tag just blatantly said only white people can be racist. She straight up said if a white person is rude to a black person based on the color of their skin, that's racist, but if a black person is rude to a white person for the exact same reason, it's not. She claims it's because of history, but you know what? Throughout my entire history, I have never been rude to anyone based on race, so if you're rude to me just because I'm white, you're a racist. And a bitch.

She goes on to say that if a white person only owns white dolls, they're racist, but if a black person only owns tan/black dolls, they're not.

Just... Wow.

Ya know what, bitch? The only racist I see around here is you. Please get the fuck over yourself.

In the meantime, I'm going to continue to buy the dolls I like, not the ones you think I should like.

dawn

Well, I finally got my internet back. And all it took was the retarded solution of unplugging then plugging-back-in the box. How utterly stupid that something so simple could cause so many problems.

Oh, and I got hot water back too, after losing that for a somewhat gross couple of days. That was a more involved process to get restored, making me go to several different places and calling people and throwing things.

I have had a really, really rough past few weeks.


But I used my internetless/showerless days for good. I became an expert at freecell, took a bunch of lovely photos, read an entire book, and finished this story.


I need a vacation.


Oct. 2nd, 2012

It`s all the love and shit.

I know I always cry at weddings, but this is ridiculous.

these guys, again

Let me say from the start that this story might be considered slightly not safe for work. Especially the first picture.

It's just, they seem to be most honest with each other when they're in bed... naked.


Also, there's supposed to be a story after this that involves Syn finally telling Gü to piss off for good, but since a certain somebody apparently isn't talking to me anymore, I don't know if I'll be able to get the pics I'd need for it. .~_~ So... maybe it won't happen.


Aug. 9th, 2012

let's put it off longer!

I'm supposed to be taking pictures right now. But I'm not. Heh.

unknown troubles?

Did someone go solo without telling us?

;P


Jun. 19th, 2012

I feel like I'm finally, officially done with that place.

And here is the last story to take place at the old apartment. I feel like it's the final closure of a very short era.

And it reminded me that I don't think I ever posted the tour video of that place. Not that it's at all exciting.

But anyway. Dollies.

snugglies

I was going to say something really witty to introduce this, but forgot what. I'm sorry that you all will miss out on my great humor.

$$

Why is doll stuff so expensive!? .;o;

Those tuxes are totally getting sold off when we're done with all this. I don't care how much ye diva bitches.

"Please don't go~"

It should be noted that I had this song stuck in my head the entire time I was working on this.



Now that that's settled~
