So, Howleen may be coming back - the ears for the new doll teaser do lend them to her style..

edit: yep, she's back. The hair color has been done to death (pink - but at least the streaks are a different color so yay?) but well, she's cute so yay?

Did I miss something...?

How I spent yesterday, the shorter version.

Got off work mostly on time after having an interesting chat with one of the newer people (we'd never spoken before) where she basically told me alllllllllllllll her friend's business and welp. That's a thing.

Stopped at McDonald's for breakfast, pretty much negating my night of drinking mostly water instead of more sugary goodies. I tried to be good, universe. Still, better that than nothing.

Came home and somehow lost my morning to paying bills, talking briefly to my uncle and then trying to follow his directions for something to help Mums and oh, yeah, battling the impossible.

While skipping through FB to see if there was an update on my cousin (there was not), I stumbled across Hot Topic and their boasting of their Summer Con exclusives. Normally I don't pay a damn bit of attention to such things but then I saw her. Luna. Freakin'. Lovegood.

I might've broken a record finding her on their site and throwing her in my basket and trying to check out only to be thwarted by her disappearing at the last second. What the heck, Lovegood?! Yeah. She kept showing up as available only to laugh and say no, although it never went as far as the first time when she legitimately showed up in my bag long enough to get my hopes up.

I debated it long and hard (at least a good minute and a half once I realized HT's site was just messing with me) and wandered over to ebay and set a limit on what I was willing to pay and found one that didn't sell out from under me. Again. Anyone other than Luna and I'd have walked away.

Then found out Chester Bennington died and wondered if [personal profile] luxken27 knew. Went to sleep shortly thereafter, only to be woken by Mums for dinner and to let me know my cousin died. I get all the best ways to wake up, no?

Throw in a period scripted by Stephen King and I wasn't looking forward to work but apparently I dozed just long enough to miss my window to call out and not get murdered. So I went and it wasn't bad.

Had some blather here, will try again when my head is a little less frazzled. My heart is a little less sad when I see how many people love him and will miss him.

I dislike the summer. Immensely. My cousin had a stroke last... Friday? Earlier? I don't know, time has been fuzzy. Anyway, he had a stroke though they weren't sure at the time what happened. And, like my aunt (and father eons ago), he seemed to be getting better only to make it hurt that much more when the universe screamed, "psych!" and now he's in hospice care. The one consolation I take in this is that he's not alone and seemed to be with it enough to have helped make the decision. Then again, I could be wrong on that last bit (not the alone part) and they could just be going based solely on what he said after his father died.

In any case, my cousin is dying and my heart just is tired of this.

Mums did try and warn me yesterday that it sounded like things would go in this direction, so it's not completely out of left field. It just sucks. Suuuuuuuuuuucks.

And in unrelated, but still sucky news, one night of work in and my feet already feel like hell. To be fair, I was the idiot who forgot to wear her foot brace thing but still. One night. Stupid damn near concrete floor.

In other news of the non-sucky type, my Cleo & Ghoulia order has 'shipped' though as far as I can tell they haven't gone anywhere and are just sitting in WI, chillin'. Doing nothing. Still have to remember to email them about the shipping charge.

I meant to have this up last Wednesday but I have not been well. There's a bit of a bug going around and I just happened to catch it due to going from the very big heat of London during the day to being completely and utterly soaked when I walked out of the London Coliseum on Tuesday night. No, seriously, wasn't even out in the rain five minutes and my jacket had bent to the power of nature. Freaky.

(Bat Out of Hell: the Musical is ... interesting, as a side note. I'm planning on writing up a better thing for my blog to express my feelings clearer but a sum up? Hm... Music is great, staging is cool, Rock You brings the plot.)

See, now that I'm actually sitting down to write, I don't actually know what I want to say. London was great, and I managed to meet up with a few friends, which is always fantastic. My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary and they had a nice time as well. I got reminded the other day that it was 4 weeks till my birthday and asked what I wanted. I ... have answered with something, but it remains to be seen if it is at all possible.

On the health side of things? I need to try to get my eating and sleeping back into better patterns. On the eating front, it's not that I'm not eating the right things, it's that... I'm not doing it in a regular enough matter for my metabolism to recognize it. At least, that's what my GP says. Sleeping is just a mess that I can't seem to fix as yet. I'm working on it though.

Fandom? While I'm excited that the new Doctor has been confirmed to be female, I have to admit my hype is stronger for the multi-Doctor Christmas Special. I'm a simple fan.

That's all I can think of right now. Checking in again later.

Is today the Hallmark Ornament thing? I think it might be. In any case, that's not normally my thing but the last year or so I've kept an eye on it because I swear, it's like Hallmark goes digging through my interests for ideas. You've got classic MLP, Rainbow Brite, DC Superhero Girls... I'm actually tempted by DCSG Wondy. She looks pretty snazzy. Probably won't though as I'm a slacker and rarely buy figure ornaments. But if I did, she and Moondancer would probably be near the top of the list. Not quite the top because they do have Halloween things. Little the mini owl, that little pumpkin tree stand thing, and I like the raven (which is basically their bird mold but in purple for Halloween) ohoh, and the haunted house.

But I haven't the money so I am once more saved thanks to the powerpuff girls being broke. Huzzah?

I believe I shall spend the next hour or so (gotta give myself a cutoff time) perusing the various Halloween things that've been popping up online and then I'm going to do... something. I dunno what. Maybe give American Gods another whirl. Maybe find a new place to straighten up. I'll figure it out. Mebbe.

Oh, did I ever mention my one and only Prime Day order? They had a box/case of MH minis for $25 and I figured what the hey, the latest reviews said they were onto S1W4 and that's the one I didn't have anywhere near a full set of, and if they'd moved beyond that set onto S2, well, so much the better. They hadn't. I wound up with S1W4 and I'm content with it. I've only opened four so far, but I'm trying to pace myself. We'll see how long that lasts. :P

My Sephora order finally showed up yesterday. Pretty late, I'd gone up to take a late nap (after 5?) when Mums called up that it had arrived. Anyway, I am ever so glad I took my time going through the free samples to choose non-foundations because, y'know, foundation samples always hit the middle of the road and are too goddamned dark for me so why bother. Nope, I dunno if they just didn't bother to look at my preferences or they'd run out by the time they actually got around to filling the order or what, but I wound up with the makeup wipes I'd requested and two foundation samples. One *might* work but the other is so, so off the mark that I'm only going to try it to laugh.

But I got my little rollerball of Stella, the perfume I like but will never buy because I'm not spending $80+ on perfume thank you, so I'm happy.

Huh. Well, I feel like a jackass. I waited til all the episodes of American Gods were over to even think of watching it because I thought I'd have to do the free trial thing on Amazon. Nope, turns out we have that channel but since I pretty much watch all of three channels (six if you count me getting lucky and the HD versions of those channels working) I didn't realize it.

But I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it through this series because holyfuckballs, I don't need or want to see that much blood and carnage. o_O Soooo... what is a girl to do?

Distract herself with the tale of the Sephora Birthday Order, I suppose. Monday I ordered something small and ponied up for the Flash Shipping (mainly so I'd get my shiny and my freebies super fast but also because you never know when you're gonna need it in the future), all so I could get my birthday 'freebie' as well as one of the 100 point perks. I'll be honest, it was the perk that actually pushed me to make the order. Anyway, I did this around noon because that afternoon is when the storms of doom rolled through.

Tuesday comes and goes without any movement on the Sephora front. Weird but... okay. Wednesday. Nothing. So I check the payment method and I was billed for the Flash but the regular order is still under pending. Huh. So I send them a message and a few hours later I get a message on FB that says hey, we dropped the ball, so sorry. Gonna light a fire under warehouse's ass to get your order out and here's 200 points to say we're sorry. That's actually pretty spiffy since it puts me at over 500 points (lest you think I do a lot of Sephora shopping, I think it's mostly gifts over the years and the 10 points a month from the box) and that's where some really fun freebies appear.

But Wednesday comes and goes completely without any movement. K, I get it. Thursday nothin'. Uh...
Thursday evening I get an email that says due to the Flash Shipping basically being not freakin' applied, I'm getting a $10 credit on my account. Sooo... that's cool. Shortly after that, I get a shipping email that says that hey, my Play box has shipped and so has my birthday order. My play box arrived around noon today but I'm still waiting on UPS to roll on through.

Assuming the order gets here safe and sound, I will give Sephora credit on being good at making things up to you. Extra points and an account credit? Yes, please.

In other news, I spent the morning cleaning. You absolutely cannot tell and I know this because I said that to Mums and she said, "I could tell." I perked up and asked, "Really? How?" as I wondered if she'd noticed the 16 layers of dust had disappeared off a corner of the room, or how the piles of papers or whatever had moved and shrunk. "I heard you."

Sigh. Took hours and the only person who can tell is me, and that's only because I know where to look. G'ah.

Ah, staycation

I believe it's time for the morning check in.

Yesterday was also good but absolutely nothing of great interest happened. I mean, I remembered I had to pay the cable bill after a moment of panic. I also managed to finally pack up the MH dolls for Widget's cousin. I'm waiting til a little later to put the box out for pickup (let's be honest, my mailman ain't coming by to pick them up before 11 at the earliest) but this means I have my little folding table back. I just hope they like them.

Let's see. I also checked on my Sephora order and realized that it still hasn't freakin' moved. So I checked to see if the payment had gone through and it did for the Flash shipping sub, but not the actual stuff. Soo... you took my money for the thing that's meant to ensure I get my stuff ASAP but have not actually shipped my stuff, let alone shipped it so I'd get it ASAP? Mmhmm. Lemme message you and get that fixed. So I did and a couple of hours later they got back to me with an apology, an extra 200 points, and the promise that they'd lit a fire under warehouse's ass. I believe the first two, but there's still no sign of movement on my order 12 hours later. Sigh.

Got my AG Custom catalog yesterday. No coupon, which is the part where I say that there are apparently 20% off coupons being mailed with catalogs to people. Naturally fandom has gone on the warpath because it's entirely possible that said coupons will be allowed to be used on the custom line. (Someone who got one called in and asked that specifically and was told they could use it but now AG is trying to backtrack.)

So if that's your thing, keep an eye on your mailbox.

Can't decide if I want to try swimming today. I really thought I'd spend my week off at the pool but... meh. I like it when I'm there, I don't mind the walk back, but it takes a chunk of my day. Why are you so far away, pool. So far away. And also not open now.
