99reddrifloons: (Flint | shiny ponyta)
so on monday one of my coworkers wasn't feeling so well - really tired, and the next day she was really dizzy.

yesterday, I was extremely tired for no apparent reason, and today I'm dizzy even while sitting down. :(


anyway, we had our coffee sales contest last saturday, and didn't get the results until yesterday. we won!!! \:D/ at 846% of our goal. we're really excited, especially since we beat our main "competitor" store, 2088 (the last sales contest we had, their baristas each bought two cases of product, which we just can't compete with :/). I get a gift card, we're all getting custom-embroidered aprons (which I will then further customize, since I just don't think Safeway will approve of titles like "The Baristanator"), and our Starbucks DM is getting something else special for us. yay!

now I'm going to bed early >< I hope LJ gets the message about all this comment page/form nonsense cleared up, though last time they changed something it took what felt like months to fix it (on the bright side, my flexible squares layout is back to normal).

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

sooooo idk? on Sunday, before I went to meetup with [livejournal.com profile] shayminlove to see HP in IMAX 3D and exchange goodies, this idiot in the parking lot at Safeway back his car into me :| which wouldn't be so bad, if it weren't for the fact that: I pulled out of my parking spot, stopped at the end of the aisle/lane because someone had blocked it (aka the other idiot - why would you park your truck + boat there???), and then Mr. Oblivious started backing out, I hit the horn, he hits me anyway, gets out of his car and asks, "DIDN'T YOU SEE ME?"

no duh I saw you >:| backing into my car, because you didn't look behind you. ADKLJAFDHKLJHDS

so anyway, I'm waiting on some quotes to get the dent he put in my door fixed - not that bad, but my car is relatively ~~new and shiny~~, and it makes me sad. naturally, he's paying for everything (yay) and he has to deal with his insurance rates going up and such.

...but I have his address and I really just want to buy some eggs and toilet paper and let my sister and her band friends loose with it. ugh. so angry >__<


then today, this guy who FREAKED OUT (screaming, yelling, tantrum) on me for no good reason two months ago came in and sincerely apologized to me. he said he acted unacceptably, due to going through a bad time in his life, but there wasn't any excuse to treat another person that way and such. it was just... amazing. inspiring. made my day \o/ and maybe increased my faith in humanity.



ANYWAY.

I only need 8 more cards to have a complete set of Base Set Ponyta! 8D I finally managed to buy AND receive my 1st edition French Ponyta, after the previous ones getting lost in the mail.

Wanted Ponyta:
1st Edition Italian
1st Edition Dutch
1st Edition Spanish
Unlimited Spanish
1st Edition Korean
Unlimited Korean
1st Edition Portuguese
Unlimited Portuguese

\o/ There are 10 other Base Set Ponyta cards, since Japan only printed an unlimited version. now if I can only find the rest of the Jungle Rapidash... I need 8 more to complete that set, too! :o

Wanted Rapidash:
1st Edition German
1st Edition Italian
1st Edition Dutch
1st Edition Spanish
1st Edition Korean
Unlimited Korean
1st Edition Portuguese
Unlimited Portuguese

9 other Jungle Rapidash cards - less than Ponyta, since the Jungle set did not have the "shadowless" error cards and fixed reprints. after this, I move on to trying to complete the Rocket set of fire horses! minor progress on that already - 6/17 Dark Rapidash, and 5/17 Ponyta. I'm not looking forward to everything after Legendary Collection, though - that's when Japan started printing first editions, and for some reason the unlimited versions are impossible to find ;___; the Karen's Rapidash promo was printed as unlimited (I have a scan of it!) but I can't find one for sale/auction anywhere.

So I have 75% of my Christmas things sent out/thrown at people from cars, and I went to go take the rest of the packages to the post office today. Wound up turning around because there were COPS CARS EVERYWHERE and the PO's right next to gang central |D Haha, and I live like 2 minutes away from there so that's cool. HIDE YO KIDS, HIDE YO WIFE.

I also got my Noppin packages of joy and joyness \o/ Random lot of awesome stuff in there along with GA plush (HOLY CRAP WHY DO THEY WEIGH SO MUCH. Ugh, have to go sort through them), Regice pokedoll figure, stampy-stamp-stampers (I like stampers :|), and keshimon! So many keshimon ;o;

Overall loot that I'm keeping from the random lot:
- Houndour/Houndoom zukan (have to fix Houndoom's peg), Mime Jr. zukan piece
- Heracross Magnet scene gashapon thing
- Charizard Pokedoll strap
- Mew, Lucario, and Mime Jr. metal charms
- Ponyta, Rapidash, and Vaporeon Pogs (from the Japanese Pokemon Master Trainer game?)
- stickerssssss
- Skitty coin purse
- maybe the Dragonite like zukan? I'm undecided, but either way I need to fix Dratini's peg
- Wobblers: Azuril, Spheal, Spinda

Stampers:
- Sudowoodo chibi stamper \o/
- Wooper and Cleffa light-up stampers. Cleffa is broken as heck, BUT WOOPER HAS PURPLE INK.
- Chikorita, Totodile, Cyndaquil, Togepi, and Delibird 151 Johto stampers

Keshimon:
- Holder
- Gold: two different pikas, moltres, articuno
- Silver: jigglypuff, charmander, dragonite, ghastly, dragonite, mew
List of extras up for grabs under the cut )

I hardcore need to do a collection update >:C



IN OTHER NEWS

Still no Rapidash Jakks D: Aaaand Delibirds came in today, plus a lovely Christmas Sweets washcloth ♥
Bought a few Arceus boosters today when we were at TRU, and only got... well, three cards that I like, but only one that was on my wants list ^^;; level 13 Ponyta and both versions of the Lucky Egg. When I get the rest of the fire horse cards from this set, my tcg binder will be full~ (Though the collection itself will still be incomplete)

Also, bought the DX Snorlax pokedol from shibihara :D Soooo excited for it. I've got a thing for large plush... *eyes her big TOMY Darkrais, Regigigas and DX Darkrai pokedoll* ...I need to get me a big Arceus TOMY, too.


completely OT for this journal, but NEW MOON TOMORROW. ASLDKJGFHADKLH BRB DYING
99reddrifloons: Vince, the shiny vaporeon pokedoll. (Default)
Went ahead and bought both DS colors today... but I'm giving the blue to my Dad on Father's Day, along with Assassin's Creed. Keeping the black shiny for myself :3

Decided to splurge and actually buy some booster packs today too. The last booster packs I opened were for the Base Set. oO
Anywho, stared at the Glaceon MD deck, but decided to ignore it since I don't really need it, and got 3 boosters. Opened them to find:

Holo Glaceon (XD)
Holo Palkia
Holo & Reg Raichu
Reverse Holo Eevee
Reg Drifloon (asdfkjabkavas THANK YOU. Now I just need the reverse holo)
Reg Munchlax

Then a zillion Turtwigs, Aipoms, Chimchars, Bronzors, Prinplups and Dusk Balls (1 rev holo, 2 reg).
Will be either stealing my sister's camera or scanning them tomorrow-ish. I only really wanted the floon, eeveelutions, and baby pokes, so the rest will most likely be up for grabs.

Oh yeah, and was accepted into [community profile] pkmncollectors today! Will be making an intro post soon-ish x)


edit: asdfkjhadf;hk DDDDDD: How does this creature manager to get my floon off the shelf? T_T At least he's not unstuffed or completely covered in collie slobber... For serious, I think this dog targets Drifloon because he looks like a ball (and ofc, the plush aspect). Bleh. Plushies are moving up a shelf or two so Fiona can't reach them whatsoever.
