#425, Drifloon (フワンて)
Type: Ghost, Flying | Abilities: Aftermath, Unburden
Gender: 50% Male/Female
Location: Valley Windworks

A Pokémon formed by the spirits of people and Pokémon. It loves damp, humid seasons.
It tugs on the hands of children to steal them away. However, it gets pulled around instead.

#426, Drifblim (フワライド)
Type: Ghost, Flying | Abilities: Aftermath, Unburden
Gender: 50% Male/Female
Location: evolve from Drifloon at level 28.

It's drowzy in daytime, but flies off in the evening in big groups. No one knows where they go.
It carries people and Pokémon when it flies. But since it only drifts, it can end up anywhere.


I only make a few friends-only entries, but leave a comment if you'd like to be added.








christmas!

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!

has anyone had problems with payments on Paypal Mobile? :x I have two payments from my sales post that display as:

"Seller Protection

Not Eligible

Transactions without a shipping address aren't eligible for seller protection. We recommend that you contact xxxxxxxx to make sure this payment was authorized. For more information, see our tips to sell securely.
We have no shipping address on file."

both users have their addresses registered on Paypal (I asked), so I don't know why I got that message and had to have them to send me their addresses.

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:

99reddrifloons: (munna = metroid)
changed things up and re-tagged all auction posts to auctions up through this page (mainly for my own reference when I get back to this)

double-checked and tagged all my own posts to the comm ever. yay! but now time for bell rehearsal o//
99reddrifloons: (happiest rapidash)
it's really fun going through all these old posts and seeing longtime collectors posts squeeing over a new discovery, or saying "my collection is complete!" when you know later they find many more amazing things :D and even more fun finding posts of rare/obscure items!

this post by [livejournal.com profile] jannali shows some rarer colors of clear mini models!


and this post, where [livejournal.com profile] tahneemonkee shows off a rare find - clefairy plushplush!



I'm still only part way through August 2007 :/ not progressing as fast tonight, since lj keeps wanting to be slow.

bloop

99reddrifloons: (munna = metroid)
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!

BONUS?!?!?!

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

Tagged:
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:
trades

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!

hmm

and now aim refuses to work for me. I guess it's time for bed? XD
99reddrifloons: (99redfloons)
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.

yes

HOLIDAY WISHLIST
STEP ONE
★ Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV"). The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
★ If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!
★ Make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
★ Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part...
★ If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes one person's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use - or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free - do it.
★ You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf - to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


1. If you want to buy me things, I've got an ebay wishlist here as well as my regular wants album. But if all else fails... unicorns are always the answer. Always. Maybe Rapidash mini models... (I have red, purple, blue, silver, light green, and clear pink)

2. If you'd like to icon/draw/craft me something, red drifloons! Or rapidash, or unicorns. Yup. Or if you'd prefer to draw humans, I like Itachi, Kakashi, Sai and Tenzou/Yamato from Naruto (also hardcore shipping YamaSai ;w; so cute); Gaz, Tallest Purple and Ms. Bitters from Invader Zim; and Shion and Nezumi from No. 6 (yes, I ship them!). Also, an adorable balrog or nazgul from LOTR would make me squee :D

3. Uhm... peppermint things - flavored, scented, themed, whatever! I love peppermint \o/

4. Cookies! Or baked things :D

5. ugh... all that new poketime wailord stuff. I'd buy it for myself, but I'm focusing on buying other people's gifts first (as I should). aaaaaahhhhhhh.



idk what else to put... more things? I have too many things. going to go through everyone else's xmas posts tomorrow! o7 and of course, I can be contacted through PM or email for my address.

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
