so Christmas Eve was nice and busy - a full day at work, followed by running to church to play bells at the Christmas Mass. then we went home, had super-special-frozen-pizza-dinner, opened stockings, and opened one gift each (family tradition). my sister opened her drum pads (which she's been playing nonstop since), dad opened Planet of the Apes, mom got her perfume (I forget which one), and I opened the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows PS3 game XD;; then we watched a bunch of Christmas movies and went to bed after, since my mom unfortunately had to work Christmas day.

I got up in the morning to find my dog had developed an ear infection seemingly overnight :( we check her ears several times a week since she's got floppy ears (more prone to infection), but somehow she must have gotten them wet (it's already cleared up as of right now, though!). my sister and I made grilled PBJ sandwiches for breakfast since we're lazy, and cleaned up a bit to get things ready for Christmas dinner - prime rib! the rest of the day we spent with dad, decided against going to the theaters in favor of watching movies at home, playing board games, etc.
we made prime rib for dinner! so delicious ;o; my sister practically scarfed it down, though, since she wanted to open presents. such an adult XD dinner was followed by 100% too much fun unwrapping presents, and encouraging bad dog behavior by telling Fiona to shred the wrapping paper.

anywho, swag:
PS3, plus Uncharted 3, HP&TDH, Resistance and Resistance 2
crocheted unicorn beanie (BEST EVERRRRR)
Invader Zim: hoodie, clasp wallet, underwear (XD), fuzzy socks, glove-to-mitten set
Ulta shadowplay artist collection & Stila gift palette
hair tinsel (for me and my sister to share) in rainbow, iridescent, glow-in-the-dark green and purple
stocking stuffers: mini co-in (adorable coin holder XD), headphones, starbucks ornament set, dark chocolate kisses

I also had a few things I got for myself, like the online exclusive starbucks plush ornaments (I didn't see them in stores, anyway), My Little Ponyta teefury shirts (thanks everyone for linking me!), and... lapras. who is my present to myself forever. hnnnnnng. still waiting for her safe arrival ;____;

I also wanted to send a big thank you to anyone who's sent gifts/cards! I haven't sent all of mine yet since I waited too long to avoid major holiday lines, but I've gotten some wonderful things, like fire piggies from [livejournal.com profile] shayminlove and THE BEST FLINT/RAPIDASH DOODLE from [livejournal.com profile] antoj. omg, I have to scan this. it's the best forever XD

today was spent on a normal breakfast, driving around to visit my 3 uncles (though we only visited 2, since one is sick and my mom just had a treatment), and then we were going to see Warhorse, but my mom took too long getting ready so we saw Tower Heist instead. just now we watched Toy Story 3 while tying in hair tinsel and cried again XD it leaves me just enough time to get ready for bed and work tomorrow. yaaaay!

so. I am now mostly freaking out every time I look at anything with an internet browser because I think of LAPRAS. this month has been a crazy time for special finds and wins for me, it's just... amazing. I can't really capture the way I feel right now in words - a weird mixture of elation and anxiety (borderline freaking out, haha). I still don't feel like grail is the right word for Lapras, either, since it's not like I was out there hunting her down... I just looked in the right place at the right time, and things worked out perfectly. I always assumed it was just one of those things I'd never own, and just see in someone else's collection, you know? (maybe not in a collection on the comm, but I like to imagine the mystery photo Lapras is part of someone's collection and not something that got worn out and thrown away. that makes Caryn sad :c)

anyway, after taking my mom to not-chemo, I went a little crazy organizing my closet, beneath my bed, shelves, etc. I've got a full bag to take to Goodwill, and filled another with things to be recycled/thrown away. I even managed to get some stuff photographed to put up in a sales post and out of my room, though I don't want to do it all at once and overwhelm myself with packages to ship (not right before Christmas, anyway). hnnnnng. so much to do to prepare my body room for a giant.


there will be picspam. so much picspam.
I want to stack so many things on Lapras omg. whales, pokedolls, floons and fireponies...

ice beam!

I have nothing to say for myself... I went balls-to-the-wall crazy bidding on this, after deliberating for a couple days over whether I could afford it (between bills, community purchase commitments, etc), where I would put it, and if it was really something I wanted to pursue.

I don't know if I can call this a grail. The giant PC Lapras has been on my wants list for ages, and wasn't something I ever thought I'd obtain even before confirming out how rare it was on pkmncollectors (not seeing it listed on any ancient sales websites or in anyone's collection, aside from the mysterious photo on someone's porch that everyone has), much less see for auction. I was even debating about parting with my small lapras collection, since obtaining the giant PC plush and "completing" it was such an impossibility. I'm glad I didn't! Tracking down the rest of the lapras plush, and even the mirage plush, seems like it has purpose again, and I can confidently say I'll be motivated to resume tracking down lapras figures as well :D

The only thing remaining now is the anxiety-ridden wait for it to arrive safely at Treasure Japan's warehouse and be shipped to me. At least this will give me time to clear off the space I want to put her, and likely clear out a majority of what's left of my never-seen side collections x)

I want to put her right at the foot of my bed on my piano bench, which is a space that has up until now been occupied by Gandalf the Arceus TOMY plush, my fire horse binders, and a box full of whatever is currently in my sales post/designated to go there. I'll need to get rid of all that, as well as most of my unneeded sales items, to even have a shot at fitting Lapras there. I think some of my big plush will have to go, too, because I've got way too many large plush now that are main/side collections to keep ones that aren't. Spare Regigias TOMY, Infernape TOMY, and DX Kirakira Arceus must go.




Though... she might be too wide to fit on my piano bench, which means I'll need to have a backup place for her. While puzzled over where else to put Lapras, I am quite pleased that I have the opportunity to have this problem :)

uuuugh.

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).

sooooo I got sniped on the hasbro fire pony set, but it's partially my fault =o= I was just too tired to stay up and watch the auction until the end, and I had a bell performance this morning so sleep had to be a priority.

on the bright side, I'm getting a ps3 and uncharted 3 for christmas. anyone have other game recommendations? I was already recommended shadow of the colossus, plan to get war in the north (mostly because I'm a lotr nerd. not sure if the game will be to my liking...), and I want to preorder the last guardian.
99reddrifloons: Vince, the shiny vaporeon pokedoll. (Default)
you know, I'm kind of disappointed that there wasn't a bidwar for those oven mitts - mostly because I put in a crazy max bid, and partly because I didn't bid on the matching tin so I could throw all the monies at the oven mitts.

...but I'm going to enjoy those oven mitts. I LOVE THE WEIRD NON-PLUSH MERCH, OKAY?

and [livejournal.com profile] marphoria suggested making pokedoll cupcakes. this sounds like a fantastic idea! I just don't know if it would be better to pipe/paint the designs onto the frosting, or use fondant to sculpt an edible pokedoll... I suppose that would depend on me finding a good fondant recipe (does anyone have/know one?). if all else fails, I can just make a cupcake cake and pipe/frost one pokedoll onto a field of cupcakes XD

I have messages/comment to reply to, so I leave you all with this:

sent out a christmas package to [livejournal.com profile] shiningmew today, and gave [livejournal.com profile] shayminlove gifts on Saturday :D I still need to get some brown paper to wrap [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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!

how caryn gets ready for bed when excited:

1. play raining blood on ipod
2. yell, "RAINING PLUSH!!!!" and begin singing along to song
3. flip ALL THE PLUSH off bed to the floor on the other side
4. regret immediately
5. cuddle-freakout-times with dx jirachi



aaakjahlkjahkh lucario. I think I'm still in shock. salamence and porygon2 keychain and lucario pillow within one week? I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON BUT I LIKE IT even if my wallet cries.

I'm still waiting on the invoice for my GA though, and it bums me out that maybe I won't have my lucario in-hand before christmas. BUT LUCARIO. lol I don't even have the regular lucario pokedoll, just the figure and figure keychain. going back to freaking out instead of sleeping now. and lurking in chat




also apparently stacking plushplush. idk.

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

first, I hate this stupid font in the html editor. I think it's trying to stab my eyeballs with it's uglyness. I'm also rather annoyed that all my notifications are apparently screwing up even more after this latest lj update :/ I either get no notification, or one days later. so if you commented/replied to me somewhere and I didn't respond, that's why. bleh.

aside from thursday until now - limited internet access between being tired from work, and thursday was my mom's not-chemo appointment. her friend Kathy came with us, and damn did I wish I had the guts to tell a 60 year old woman to STFU. she kept talking when my mom was trying to sleep off some of the benadryl, and then all through the movies we brought to keep busy. I couldn't even retreat into Pokemon Rumble Blast, because I'd start playing and she would nudge me just as she said something ~super entertaining~..... pertaining to nothing I'd know about (her and my mom work together, and she was gossiping). >:|

work is fun and crazy right now. the one barista nobody likes and I can't get rid of is taking 2 months leave to have surgery on her arm (and everyone hopes she won't come back) starting next month. lol, way to get the holidays off... not that I want her working them on her pay rate.
to start off the season, we're having a Halloween sale this weekend: grande fall drinks (pumpkin spice, salted caramel mocha, chai) are $2 after 2pm. this is only at Safeway-owned stores, so we're special snowflakes! \o/ then on Tuesday we magically change overnight to Thanksgiving Blend, red cups, and the Holiday Trio (peppermint mocha, gingerbread, and eggnog). November 15 starts full-on Christmas season, with Caramel Brulee going up and us putting on red aprons... two red aprons for our store. how are we supposed to keep them clean??? .___.;

merchandise is amazing this year, too. Christmas Espresso Roast is nationwide this year, yay! there's a 4-pack of ornaments, containing the 2011 holiday pattern, 2011 white cup pattern, previous logo (siren with text), and the original siren logo (boobs). no clear tumbler ornament this year :c and no tea cup ornament again. standard coffee sampler, taste of tazo, and cocoa trio gift packs, a different gift bag (last year was a box, 2009 was a bag), glass tazo mugs... oh, and we have plush hedgehogs lol. so derpy and cute. my store didn't get any bearistas and I didn't see them in our sku guide, so I'm not sure if they're doing them this year, not that I like them (worst sellers, aside from a few that sell to collectors). I'm excited for the Christmas Blend VIA, since I like my coffee at weird times/places X) the packaging is also adorable (tiny 6-packs of VIA!).

other sales events... there's going to be a Holiday BOGO, as well as a greeting card coupon handed out at stores. December 1st is donations to (RED) as usual, followed by 11 days of sales on specific items. certain items will include a free drink for the recipient after Christmas, and naturally there will be insane clearance deals on anything left at the end of the year.



also, blonde roast is coming. most lolworthy name ever, but I like that they're making some more mild roasts to appease those who like weak not-dark coffee.


hmmm. I need to clear out my extra side collections, too, to make room for wailord cushion (I was one of those who lucked out and preordered). and OMG. I can't imagine carrying so many of those x___x I also figure I finally need more room for my rapidash and floons, plus pokedoll merch and my semi-serious side collections (goth line, munna, happiny, umbreon/espeon/vaporeon, keshimon).
culling: gen 1 water types, most of my baby types, heracross, electric sheep, misc gen 3 pokemon, arcanine, ninetails, girafarig... gdi too many to list. probably going to cut out some of my bats as well.




hmmm. also went to the LOTR:FOTR symphony a couple weeks back. IT WAS AMAZING. I FANGIRLED SO HARD. MIGHT HAVE SPRAINED SOMETHING. WHY DID OTHER PEOPLE NOT DRESS UP.
haaaaah |D yeah, I totally glued on my elf ears and got my geek on. thought about going as a nazgul, but passed since I didn't want to get kicked out or something. GOOD THING, THOUGH. I would have been shown up by the LIFE SIZE SCULPTURE OF A NAZGUL IN THE LOBBY. also Lurtz. omg. and swords and helms and hobbit feet. I bought all three things being sold: symphony CD, program, giant ass hardcover with a breakdown of every song and theme from FOTR to ROTK plus CD with alternate and mock-up tracks from production. read it all. flipped the fuck out. played piano and clarinet and flute every day for a week, plus vowed to fix up and learn my goddamn oboe to play those alskjahkjh sexy themes of darkness in a proper way askjfhakljakjfakjakj Sauron is my favorite aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.
we also marathoned the full extended set, ending about the time people were arriving for my sister's birthday party. I commented, "I want to fight cave trolls." one of the kids replied, "don't quit your day job" and all I could say was, "I already fight trolls at my day job. I work at Starbucks." |D;;;

blah blah blah LOTR taking a break from writing because freaking out again.


anyway. seeing a proper Nazgul costume up insanely close has given me more to work on with my own costume, aside from figuring out a way to either fake the armor or save up for REAL ARMOR (I'll do it, too). mainly I need to grow 2 feet taller and turn into a basketball player, because goddamn I never thought about how tall those Numenoreans are (6-7' average, btw). I need me some STILTS.


uuuuuuuuuhhhhhh I can't even remember half the stuff I was going to write about now because my head is back in nazgul-land. something about being obsessed with Rumble and being sad about no wifi trading/battles/etc.

OH. and I finally got my Pokedoll Collection II boxed figures today :D the set I won after losing like a billion auctions in one week. eeeeeeee ♥ plus a happiny mascot plush and custom candle from a trade with furrettails. I've got to mail her my half on Monday, along with a few other packages :3
99reddrifloons: (happiest rapidash)
asldjhaskldjh I am flipping out because this pokedoll craft tape that I though was this tiny little tape roll

is actually a HUGE roll of plushplush craft tape. like the size of a roll of duct tape omg


it's still sticky and unused and omggggggg. I bid 7000 yen on it thinking it was tiny and pokedoll BUT IT'S HUGE AND PLUSHPLUSH ASKDJAHDKJH


plus, in the same box came ALL THE STATIONARY IN THE WORLD. and there is a 2002 pokedoll notepad featuring the first run pokedolls!

alsooooo my plushplush label sheet :DDD and gothita line zukan and shopper bag. today is a good day for material goods. totally taking crappy pictures (lighting is terrible - we have clouds!!!) in a bit.



also for the cat! she is fine, and worth $800 more than two weeks ago. $800 HAIRBALL, HOW DID YOU DO THAT. she's a shorthair cat, and our longhair cat is an outdoor cat only. whaaaaat. Jynx you are evil.
as I type this, she's sitting at my feet smugly waiting for her fancy feast.
99reddrifloons: (robot keldeo attack | your blood will sp)
ugh =___= so tired. today was randomly a 23487132694876 times busier than it's been in... a month? something like that. our shipment came in minus the cool lime juice, and with a destroyed case of very berry hibiscus juice (that name is so ridiculous). so there was juice everywhere and nowhere, and we had to clean up, send an emergency order (we needed that juice!), and a credit request. everything else on the shipment was squished, mangled, and sticky, but useable :|

ANYWAY. I got to come home to a shiny new ponyta marble and a german rocket's ponyta ♥ so there's that.

also, sales post because I need more space in my room:
http://floonisms.livejournal.com/5578.html

also also, I blame yukitsukihana for getting me all excited about card collecting again. I want to finish all my old sets, new sets, and get pretty binders/portfolios for them XD; but first, I need to organize and figure out what I'm missing (other than almost everything after Neo Discovery until Diamond & Pearl). except I don't want base set 2, because that set is a jerk.



...I'm going to take a nap now >>

I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY CAMERA CORD IS. >8|


other things:
  • played Telemann duets like a boss today. TELEMANN ♥
  • finished set up for summer 2 promo launch tomorrow
  • tasted ~~fancy~~ new test market beverages. cool lime and very berry hibiscus refreshers. not sure if I like them. too sweet and not enough... tart? I guess for fruity flavored things. however, they have a slice of lime/blackberries in them, which is pretty cool. I want a passion tea lemonade with a slice of lime now.
  • homemade lasagna for dinner. my house smells delicious~
  • GOING TO TEAR APART MY ORGANIZED ROOM FOR MY CAMERA CORD BRB

    one surprise gone BUT NOT THE BIG ONE
    99reddrifloons: (munna = metroid)
    went to TRU, and they'd finally stocked the new jakks plush! \o/ which means I have a new munna to love and adore. the tag was stuck right through her forehead, and I couldn't leave it :/ so now she's tagless, and her name is Tumor ♥ I also couldn't resist the new card folders, so I grabbed one and the Victini box set. pulled a zekrom :3 the Victini figure also looks really nice... but I must resist collection another pokemon >:| I already tried and failed not to collect munna (this is going to be difficult if gothita or keldeo wind up with a lot of merch). ugh, and I really like frillish and jellicent, too ;___; I need to weed out things from my seldom-pictured water collection if I want to make room for them.

    eta: also getting a huge (like 3') woobat display that I have no idea where to put. I just rearranged my posters a little while ago, too >>

    I believe my notifications are finally behaving \o/ Turned them off and on again, and all appears to be right~

    A belated Happy Easter to everyone :D My sister and I made baskets for everyone, had two bell performances in the morning (we were at church from 7:30 to 12:30 o__o), and then went to brunch with the extended family. My mom's twin brother got married the weekend before (what I forgot about in my last post, I think), so I now officially have a new aunt ♥

    Monday we had our first rehearsal for an itty bitty clarinet choir (currently a quartet, but I've been talking to some clarinet friends to see if they want to join), and we're playing a ~mystery piece~ by Stamitz. It's a 1940 print date and has a fair amount of typographical errors (the third part is missing a pick-up note, third and bass are missing a grand pause, and there are disagreements between all the parts in regards to a few ritards and rallantandos)... and completely lacks its title/number. The publisher just labeled it 'Andante' XD Overall nice piece, however, and fun to play. I'm also contemplating working on a Gershwin piece, but I need to buff up my skills on an E-flat soprano :/ I'm not sure my embouchure's up to snuff (certainly not for the strength 4 reeds I currently have for it - I'll have to sand them down).

    Hm. And then there was work. Stressful, because we had to deal with someone who was stuffing her purse with sugar packets :/ Literally emptying out all the bins. She saw nothing wrong with it, because she buys a coffee every day. Um, what?

    a few photos under here )

    Also, I started Black on Monday. My character's name is Tacnayn, and I named my oshawott 'wat.' I laughed over Professor Juniper saying, "wat is its name. That is such a great name!" for far too long. \o/

    Now... going to go try again for umbreon on pokemon.com ;__; this game and I don't agree.
    99reddrifloons: Vince, the shiny vaporeon pokedoll. (Default)
    \o/



    so all the photos I took at the tour came out blurry courtesy of my temperamental camera :< oh well, I had lots of fun with everyone and clocked ~10k steps each day on my pokewalker (roughly 20k steps per day, since I keep my pokewalker on one of my shoes). I'd take photos of my gets, but the light's not good now and I was too tired yesterday when I got home XD; still tired now.

    I'm so glad I got what I wanted (yay plush and charm!) and that people were able to grab some freebies from me :3 such a funtastic weekend!



    ahaha, and my sister is playing Everyone's A Little Bit Racist on our piano right now. later tonight we're going to go flamingo someone's lawn. yeah, that's right. flamingo someone's lawn.

    :D ♥♥♥ to masterpetediddy for showing me the auction~~~

    now back to work \o/
    99reddrifloons: Vince, the shiny vaporeon pokedoll. (Default)
    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
