99reddrifloons: (munna = metroid)
sent out a christmas package to [ profile] shiningmew today, and gave [ profile] shayminlove gifts on Saturday :D I still need to get some brown paper to wrap [ profile] antoj's box before mailing, because I don't want to send a box with labels that let everyone know what's inside lololol.

also organized a bit of my slowly shrinking side-collection shelf... I don't want to get rid of stuff, but there's other pokemon I want room for XD having a hard time letting go of horsea/seadra things, especially shiny silver metal figure ♥ Krabby and Goldeen lines are almost gone, debating getting rid of the rest of Shellder. I'm keeping Omanyte and Lapras, though! as well as purple bats (sent all the other ones to [ profile] captainangel!). good thing is that there's room for more wails, pokedoll figures, keshimon, munna and goths! I also moved around my rapidash mini models, since I needed to put my purple ones in :3 purple ponies! I need to do the same with my floons, since I've got two custom redfloons that need better spots ^^;

also, collection picspam below. pokedolls and fire pony mania! )

oh yeah, I counted and that's 113 unique fire horse tcg. this is what happens when your favorite doesn't have a lot of merchandise o7 hopefully this week I'll have a chance to take prettier pics to post on the comm.

and in a little bit, I'll go back to tagging~ almost finished with 2007!

I was bored, so I started going through and tagging some oooold posts on pkmncollectors.

back-dated posts prior to 2007 (I'm not sure how these got there? x__x): 1988, 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
back-dated January 2007
back-dated March 2007
april 2007
may 2007
june 2007
july 2007

Tags to consider adding:

Redundant tags:
figure, figures - "figures" is the official tag now!
pokedoll, pokedolls - "pokedolls" is the official tag now!
auction, auctions
latios latias plush - yes, that's one tag XD

This post, which cannot be tagged (comes up as "Specified journal is invalid.") and is by a deleted user. also invalid, I'm guessing because pikabellechu deleted her account. I gave up trying to tag posts by deleted users after this XD
also, there are lots of back-dated posts throughout older months :x not sure why people felt the need to "hide" their posts so far back?

edit: here's the tagging post from 2009. I can see that January, April, May, June, October, and December 2008 were claimed for tagging, but I'm not sure if they were finished (or if posts may have been back-dated into those months).
edit 2: January, April, May, and June 2008 aren't finished, and October and December still need to be looked through (just skimming through and posts weren't tagged/missing applicable tags, but these might have been back-dated).

(to the movie meetup, that is)
I DUNNO. Vince for sure, but I want to bring a big plush. so DX Jirachi, DX Celebi, Squidward (Drifblim custom), Goliath (Regigigas tomy plush)... or someone else? I think wailord and munna cushions are too big to bring anywhere ;o; maybe Halloween floon? I need a christmas floon... or shiny ponyta :D since I'm bringing Vince, and I'll be wearing my fire horse earrings and ponyta beanie. she's not big, but yay pokedoll customs? I kind of want to bring porygon2 key chain, but I am 9000% too paranoid about bending his tag or terrible things happening to take him anywhere.

anyway time for bed, since I've got a long drive to the theater tomorrow. yay!

so, SO busy all this weekend ;o; that holiday BOGO at Starbucks? we did double our normal business EVERY DAY \o/ and that's not including the free drinks. we sold so much stuff!
the only downside (sort of) was that I got called in thursday and had to stay late on friday/saturday... meaning I didn't get to ship all the packages I've got ready to go >< thankfully I shouldn't be held over tomorrow, and can get to the PO last-minute before thanksgiving.

speaking of turkey day! I'm off both thanksgiving and black friday for the first time in 4 years XD I don't mind working those days (no cooking stress, no shopping/traffic stress!), but other people volunteered. I'm looking forward to watching the madness on friday.

unpleasant things... apparently, I might be allergic to norfolk pines? I am in pain from allergies today, and the only thing I know for sure that changed is that we got a shipment of norfolk pines at safeway :/ my coworker, Jennifer, was on the verge of having an asthma attack this morning, because there were two placed right next to Starbucks. idk, I might just be getting the cold from hell.

our bell choirs at church are also short a few members each, so the ladies' and young adult choirs are going to be temporarily merging to perform at the children's mass on christmas eve. my sister and I went, "THANK GOD." we've both been playing 4 bells each, and the more complicated music just doesn't work with 4-in-hand - we change keys almost constantly in several pieces, and since I'm a 'newbie' to the technique, I can't always ring accurately (I'm playing medium size handbells in small hands - holding two in each hand hurts!). anyway, I'm really looking forward to it, despite the fact that we're not playing a few of my favorites. I do get to play "I Heard The Bells" and I get to play BIG bells on one of the songs! I hardly ever get to play them - the high bell parts tend to require intermediate/advanced players while lower parts are simpler, but one of our songs has so much syncopation our director doesn't trust the regular player on those bells XD;

ALSO christmas list... )

idk idk idk. I said a partial list. there's still plenty I'm not sure of, like what to give the rest of my coworkers (Susan, Ivonne, Angelica, Will), and whether or not I'll have time for crafting/baking (maybe thursday/friday?). I need to restock on baking goods, too.
ALSO PLEASE ADD/UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS AND FAVORITE THINGS IF YOU'D LIKE A CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM ME. if I ever get to the post office that post is screened and f-locked, btw, so no need to be worry. you can also email me, if you'd prefer~

I feel like I've forgotten something I was going to write about, but... hm. I got a package with my yay!win of tomy regigigas, tomy infernape, and dx shiny material arceus, though I don't really want the last two (I'd rather have a tomy empoleon ♥). I'm ecstatic to have a double of regigigas, especially since this one's a bit less loved than Goliath (who I now feel no guilt in dragging around). same package also had halloween sticky notes and a flat lot I won: a DP pencil board, sticker sheet... AND 2004 POKEDOLL NOTEPAD. the sheets inside are full-feature of bulba/venusaur, charmander/zard, and squirtle/blastoise ;~; so pretty and big ♥
also a couple additions to my rapidash collection are somewhere in the mail (and making me paranoid). I found the 3-ring DP ultrapro binder that features rapidash, and it's shipping from the UK. also from the UK, rapidash sample card! the seller apparently only had one left, and I couldn't bring myself to continue passing on it, so I made an offer and they accepted. I'll be silently freaking out until it gets here, since it's my most expensive card purchase ;o; ($65 - not that much compared to other prices, but a big deal for me).
OH WAIT ALSO MY TRADE WITH CAFFWIN. adorable redfloon drawing that I need to scan/photograph :D

yay for early morning emails. I guess the licensed stores all got sent material with the wrong dates and I have to keep this stuff in my backroom for 2 weeks. this would be fine if my backroom weren't the size of a large closet :| oh well, tetris skills pay off irl, I guess. (haha, I have the shelves + a 6-wheeler cart stacked twice my height)

but this also meant I was at work 2 extra hours, so no post office run >.< boo.

Soooo it looks like I'm going back to WV for a week and a half, flying out on September 15. I really don't know why my uncle wanted to postpone the memorial service for so long (well, I do know, but waiting for your "friend with benefits" to fly across the country for moral support doesn't count in my book), but he's in charge of that so whatever. My dad's cousin/name twin is the executor of the estate and is already out there, making sure nobody takes things not left to them (or things "disappearing"! yay). Also fun - cousin got to tell my uncle that yes, if anyone contests part of the will, they automatically forfeit their portion This was put in to keep everyone fro fighting, but moreso to keep my uncle from asking for more money - he has very poor banking practices, and has "borrowed" around a million dollars from my grandparents over the years, all without holding any form of stable job. He was even fired from the family hotel.

ahaha, can you tell I don't like my uncle?

We have apparently inherited a super-fancy-expensive antique set of silverware, which is cool - they're handmade, and each is engraved with an "M" for Morgan. I've also got a ton (possibly literal) of iron horses waiting for me, since my grandmother left me the ones from her childhood and tracked down more from all over WV. I don't know/care much about other things that are allocated to us, but I do know I want to see about my grandmother's art. We spent countless hours drawing and painting and crafting together, which is one of the things I loved best about her. She could look at anything and see a hundred ways it was art, had her own gallery exhibit, and co-authored a book on trapunto quilting (I have one of the pieces featured in the book!). I dunno, it's just my way of remembering her, the same way my mom and I remember my grandma by collecting antique chicken memorabilia (my grandma grew up in a dirt-floored house before immigrating to the US, and her mother and aunt raised chickens).

blaaaaah. I've got so much to get ready before I go - fall promo with pumpkin spice and anniversary blend starts next week, and I've got to write both of our ingredient orders for the time I'm gone (I'm confident in my assistant's ability to scan/send an order, but she's only written one order with help before). I don't have to worry about scheduling while I'm gone, thankfully, since one of the Safeway assistant managers can do that. At least all of this sounds like less when I type it out?

I was going to take a picture of my woobat display, but forgot |D I also realized that I started Black version too late and will have to beg for a Victini (the one on my White version is traded away orz). I did get my mystery egg, and Black version hatched a Pansage - since I used one in White, I just put him in the PC. My current team is wat the oshawott, Looker the patrat, cheese the lillipup, basement the purrloin, flint the pansear, and tumor the munna. I haven't let anyone evolve yet, nor decided who's going to be boxed to make room for 3.141 the pidove (did you know it won't let you use more than 4 digits in a row to nickname?).
Dream World was fun~ I brought home a female farfetch'd for Black, and... somethingorother on White. I'm more preoccupied with moving some of my dittos over on White version ♥ I won't be training anything for VGC this year, though, since I'm not going out of state to battle :c This leaves me unsure of what to start breeding.

on Vdex, I'm trying to decide what trainer sprite I want to upgrade to (currently on the default Kotone). I've been looking at Will, Karen, Winona, and Fantina (only because lolfloondress). I'm working on my crobat's beauty (tried the beauty contest yesterday when she had 15 stars, but it wasn't enough to win), and on getting my torterra to level 100 (less than a week away!). I'm up to 11 different berry types, and have almost 10 of everything but enigma (takes 48 hours to grow, and I'm only planting one at a time >>).

That's my current team - Keldeo was an event prize ♥ everyone else is leveling up (or getting happy in the case of cleffa). I'm not sure what's in the egg, but I can't wait to find out :3

back to collection stuff! somewhere in the mail, I have a ton of pokedoll merchandise and floons ;3; I've already got a shelf ready and waiting for it. also, I think I'm missing a total of five munna plush, and nearly all the figures. fail! I need the cushion, both mascots, pokecen plush, and maybe one more... did munna get released multiple times as a mascot (excluding ballchain and black thread loop)? hm. I also need the tomy, cell phone charm/straps, zukan (this is just being lazy), stamper, kid, and a tin that I saw once and didn't bid on :/ There's also the hair clips, headband, etc. from a promo a while back... and all the flats I don't want to think about. I've got a bunch of (planned) bills coming up for my car, though, so I can't go searching for them just yet. boooo.

[that song forever in my head]


The past... month? or so I've spent either a) driving my sister and friends to and from rehearsals, performances, etc. for her drumline group, b) cleaning, cooking, etc. because my mom is busy angsting, or c) working/rehearsing. Sleeping and eating are definitely in there somewhere (maybe). Courtesy of the DDOS and my phone rage-hating on LJ, I haven't been on here much :/ To make things more wonderfundle, my paypal login info was compromised - I logged in to print address labels from my laptop for shipping, found that the printer had decided to hate me again (for some reason, it's a 50-50 chance for things to print correctly when printing wireless). So I logged in on my mom's computer, since that's the one with a direct connection to the printer... and discovered after I logged in that my mom had managed to install not one, not two, but three browser-hijacking add-ons to Firefox. Yaaaaaay. But thankfully I'd noticed and was able to change my info as well as remove all the nastiness =___= Better than my dad, who managed to kill his one-year-old laptop last week.

blah )

Collection stuff... Lost a ponyta picture frame since I missed the end of the ebay auction ;A; but! Came back to LJ in time to win a deoxys pokedoll notebook (completely adorable), and sent an email with all the search terms I need for y!j (my phone won't let me install japanese fonts?) so I was able to find and win this beauty, which I'm still in awe over. I swear, I spent half the day logging in to Noppin to affirm the fact that I'd indeed won.
(I don't suppose any Keldeo merchandise has been announced?)

This would be longer, but I'm pretty much exhausted - I spend my 'free time' catching up on sleep. Ending this entry with my current party on VDex, the only game/website I've used more than a few times during my long absence.

blah blah

if something could go wrong today, it did |D thankfully, I only had to work until 3 and then I ran the heck away. now I'm back to thinking positive instead of thinking mean things at people (seriously, don't ask me if a coffee drink tastes the same as a non-coffee drink. ONE HAS COFFEE, ONE DOES NOT. THIS IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE). ok, now back to thinking positive. honest.

good things today!:
- rain, sort of
- supplies arrived on time
- no fires, AND we got to throw away all of our stock in the backroom, which takes care of all the extra cups/lids my previous assistant manager ordered OVER A YEAR AGO because he's a derp-face (and still is, even though he's a manager at another sbux now XD;;)
- finishing taking pictures between clouds (spoilers for my eventual update post) )


this art scares me so much D:

=____= This week, work has gotten crazier the closer it gets to Valentine's Day. Overtime = yay, but getting a cold and being plain exhausted from staying longer or being called in is Not Fun.

Thankfully, I came home to good stuff~ )I need to get back to all the messages and emails that have accumulated over the past few days :/ I've got to get some rest now, though, and take something for cold/allergies/better-not-be-the-flu, since I have to get up early tomorrow for a bell performance.

Also, Vince has a hat.

Off to take my mom to her pseudo-chemo-rituxan thing! \o/ Also, I've been thinking over it, and I've decided I really need to get rid of my second DX Phanpy, since I already have enough big plush. My turtle's been re-homed, so now I have a full wall of my room back to put posters and shelves against, giving me more room for my collection... if it weren't for the huge plush pile I've got going |D

more on that later. My mom actually missed her first appointment today because she had the wrong time written down o//
