so apparently (I’ve never paid much attention) the dividing fence between us and the “special home” is actually their fence, which was entirely irrelevant and convenient UNTIL TODAYS WINDSTORM KNOCKED DOWN ABOUT AN 8ft SECTION. So hado called them to let them know; they stated a guy would be by to look at it and they’d let us know. Now I say the fence blew into their own yard, so technically we have no right to bitch unless we offer to help pay to get it fixed( on condition that gets it done immediately). HE claims that since it’s on our dividing property line we have the right to know anyway. They really SHOULD have a high security fence to keep the weirdest ones from wandering into our yard (they already throw things over it) but I have no idea if bylaws require them to have one.
So uh, dogs can’t go outside until this is resolved. NOT what we want to deal with right now with all the Honda cutbacks right now. UGH
I got to write on a fax reply today regarding drapery panels. Also, fuck the playoff refs and their inconsistencies. Aside from the obvious favouritism; either for teams to push through or merely to extend serieses, the obvious ignorance to the entire purpose behind re-writing hits-to-the-head consequences for the past several seasons is going to end up with someone dead. Eventually.
SBL Blythe: SO STRESSFUL. had to cut off basically the entire flange to her scalp to get it off. Chipped the point off my Xacto. Stupidass head still won’t split open. Don’t have a saw, and really REALLY don’t want to have to saw her stupidass dome anyway. wargh. Sticking to RBL blythes from here to eternity!
made up my mind fuck it- gonna reserve the black Sheep Garden OP and sell a few pieces from my closet to pay for it. Realize the reserves ended Monday. Am ecstatic when I see they still have them up on AP US. Realize the black OP is no longer there. Fuck me.
Those damned sheep remind me of easter eggs. Of fighting with my sisters EVERY YEAR over who got the PAAS sheep paper-ring-cutout-egg-holder-doohicker that came in that pack. Over who got the sheep sticker off the sheet, and who was left with the derpy turtle. lmao Lollichop. Sounded like the main-course-version of a Strawberry Shortcake doll’s pet. I think I’m just emo.
I’m kicking myself over having gotten the black IW replica violin bag, because I really need the brown one to match my shoes.
That said, I’d be kicking myself otherwise when I finally wear Kuroneko-no-dance because I’ll need the black one then! Ugh, so don’t have time to make a new bag for Sunday, so I guess Mimi (milkchan) will come with me instead.
at least for the evening. One good thing? my dolls often look better in photos than IRL. win?
totally ended up completely sanding off Klara’s teeth so she’s got even more of a sulky look than Ilse but wtf I’m too tired. I’ve sanded down and repainted this face about 5 times as I kept reshaping her mouth and now it’s 1 am. However, her eyelids are pretty sweet so there. At least now she doesn’t need a wig. Forgot that coolcats pullrings come with a replacement string as well, so I used embroidery floss for her sleep eyes (lol) but I’ll crack her head open tomorrow to replace that. I lied. I just fixed it. embroidery floss is ghetto. Photos to come tomorrow. gotta walk the dogs and go to bed.
blythe mod is going not-so-well. not only is face freaky,but it totally doesn’t match her scalp. i’ll see if I can salvage it and either switch scalps with some other blythe I will have to buy later (lol) or wig it up.
eyeing up patterns for onepiece jumpersuit thingies at work, and trying to figure out how to lolify them. Also, AS SOON AS i finish this skirt for display I swear I’m going to attempt a sailor-collar cutsew. dammit
