Anyone want to log onto poupee girl for me? My power is still out and I don't want to miss a dress up stamp. If you saw me post this on fb too, yes I am hopelessly addicted and desperate. DX

My life in a journal post nutshell

So in honor of actually seeing a lolita at my job today, I thought Id finally make an update on here. I also wouldnt mind an excuse to avoid homework some more.

So first off, I got a job! At Joann Fabrics for seasonal onto part time. I just finished my second week. Everyone there is really nice, dont see any problems getting along with anyone, customers are in much better moods than the ones at friendlys, and hopefully this will finally get me to start learning to sew. I get to take classes there for free! Plus employee discounts!

Second off, now that I have a job, we are likely finally going to move out of Nick's parent's house! We already found a nice, cheap duplex. We just need to send in the background check they require and hopefully we will get it. Nick finally started his internship on the ferries here in the engine room. This will end in january and then he has to go down to san diego for school for a month. This is the real reason we are getting an apartment so quickly because I refuse to say at his parent's house alone for a month. It might get tight until he starts working again but hopefully we will be good. There is no lease so if we have to leave, we dont have to worry about that.

It will suck being alone for a month but hopefully we will get to take the new kitten with us to keep me company. Our last cat, tanuki, got out almost a year ago and never came back. There are coyotes in the woods behind Nick's house so there wasnt much hope. I am still kinda pissy over how that happened. Randomly, the new puppy was found wandering around outside. Nick and I were already asleep and of course no one else thought to check if any other small animals got out. Anyway, so one of Nick's sisters found a kitten this summer and I sort of adopted it. Technically, I am the only one who recognizes that but cats dont have a very good history in Nick's family so they may decide we can take him.

And a random moment, I had this dream one night involving Poupee girl. I was going back and forth between poupee girl and the lj community. Im scrolling down the posts and see there is a new event out. When I go to look at it, I find out it is called...Singing Donkey! Unfortunately, my mind wasnt creative enough to make up a Singing Donkey collection. I think I just saw stuff from the Mysterious Event. It actually woke me up I think because I found it that ridiculous. 

Yea, I started using poupee girl a few months ago. I found a few of you but it looks like most dont play anymore. If you still do and I havent added you, go add me: pupe.ameba.jp/profile/K22bKjs_oPSM/

I think thats mostly it. Still going to school, still crocheting. I did start a blog to talk about my crochet work. I dunno if anyone would be interested in seeing it, it kinda sucks. And I update it just as badly as I have been here. DX

Planning

 So what days are good for everyone to hang out and what would you like to do? I know I will probably have a trip over to Mitsuwa one day, another day in queens for purikura and maybe the rose tea house again, and one or more days in manhattan for alice's tea cup, macarons, time square, etc. Just need to know what days are good for everyone so I can make some official plans!

I return! In more ways than one!

The first is that I will try to hopefully, maybe return to LJ. I kinda stopped coming here maybe mid december or whenever my last post was I think. Need to clean up my friends page so it doesnt take half a day to get through all the new posts like it used to. ~_~  And really need to catch up with all that has been going on with everyone! 

The second is I will be making a trip back to NY in August! From aug 5th to aug 25 so 3 weeks! Does anyone have any meetups in the works yet? I need to start planning all the things I want to do while I am back which I will probably post about here. Right now all I know is I want to go to Alice's tea cup, mitsuwa, tokyo rebel (though I wont be able to buy anything im sure Y.Y), purikura probably, the usual. Could probably use some more ideas like if anything special will be going on in august?

Boot Advise

So I really want to get the Rose Boots from Bodyline! (not the one with fake roses)

I like the black ones best because of the contract with the rose so Im definitely getting that! But I could use white boots more. So Im trying to decide if I should get them in white also, or find a different pair of boots in white for variety? Cause I like variety! :]

Im also looking at the boot shorter boots if I dont get the white ones right now. But Im still not sure how well I can coordinate them. What color coordinates could you get away with brown boots with?

Bodyline Conclusion

So my dispute with Bodyline has come to a close, with me being SOL. D:

I opened my paypal dispute with them not long after my post on egl. They completely ignored it, so when I went to escalate it to a claim, paypal immediately closed it saying they do not cover this sort of dispute...FUCK. And of course this was the ONE time I used my paypal balance since I forgot paypal forces you to use that first and I wanted to get my order in ASAP in case bodyline didnt extend their free shipping deal (which they did of course). Meaning I cant get my money back through my bank. *SIGH*

So Im probably gonna see about having someone fix it for me. Might bring it around to some local tailors and see how much they charge. Or ship it out to someone. talia_speaks already contacted me offering to do it for $25 plus shipping probably. Anyone recommend someone else? Or what about any of you talented girls? :D

On a completely unrelated note, I now have a new saying. Strangely, it came from a sci fi show Nick's been watching (Farscape). Instead of, what the fuck, it is now what the FRILL. Yes, this came from a sci fi show and I have no idea why. XD

School - The end is Nigh/Halloween

So me and school aren't getting along too well right now. Im probably gonna fail one of my classes and I got some project due dates coming up fast on me. There's only 2 weeks of school left for me.

Other than that, I wanted to finally post some stuff from halloween:

So I was just looking through the old Laforet fashion show pictures and it accured to me. Those models probably have like size 9/10 + feet on average. Yet they are still wearing brand shoes. That must mean AP and the like should easily be able to make bigger sizes, unlike rose chocolat who got into all sorts of trouble when they tried to get bigger sizes.

I guess they could argue that it wouldnt be profitable but if they already have the molds that negates that argument right? All they would have to do is when they make the shoes for the show, churn out a few extra pairs and through them on the site. The LL tea party shoes are all sold out so they shouldnt be worrying about them selling. So Im wondering what is still holding them back?

Ok, I just had another thought. I wonder if they might all base which models they pick on what their shoe size is, so they arent making new shoes? I dunno how common it is for a runway model to have size 8 feet though?

Damn you Bodyline!

Something is WRONG with BODYLINE! HOW do you send out a dress with the print UPSIDE DOWN!!!!! UGGGH XC

Im gonna be even more upset if they make me send it back cause I just find that so annoying, making me waste my time and gas to drive to the post office for THEIR mistake! Im not even gonna start if they won't even send me a new dress...

So I know I am way past due for an update but Im too upset/tired to try to write anything now and I needed to share.

FYI: It's this dress if anyone was wondering. In black.
