Wow…Salvation Army Thrift store is awesome..

16 Oct

Today, I had to go to work at a branch that was new to me (and to everyone else too, since it recently opened!)..I left early since I’d heard that there might be a protest downtown (the whole wall street mess) that might impede transit. Anyway, I was so early, I decided to explore the neighbourhood a bit, and I found a Salvation Army Thrift store…and man, was it ever awesome! *v*

This is the reason why:

Vampaia Miyu Figurines~

There was a whole collection of figurines..I’m betting the mother of some okatu cleaned out his/her room~ and gave them to the Salvation Army~ poor Okatu if that’s so~  anyway, I picked out two figurines from Vampaia Miyu (Vampire Princess Miyu), Miyu Yamano and Chisato Inoue. If you haven’t seen the anime, I recommend it~ it’s well worth a look~ xD

I’m thinking of maybe going back there on Wednesday (my next day off) to see if I can get some of the others as I didn’t have much money on me today to get more than two.

Here are some close up pics of the two figurines~

Chisato Inoue from Vanpaia Miyu~

Miyu Yamano from Vampaia Miyu~

Too awesome, eh? *purrs happilly*

Now to go back to my do-to-list…cleaning my kitchen and working on the DREAM Manga Group Facebook Page. See you around if Ki does not kill me….

Up WAY too late last night…whatwasIthinking?!

4 Oct

I was up way TOO late last night~ I got caught up in playing Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box..I managed to find ALL of the puzzles, serve 26 people tea, slim down the hamster (Ki), and in doing so, I unlocked the bonus puzzles…and solved them all…all that’s left now is the bonus puzzles that you obtain online via Nintendo download. *I am a crazy kitty*

Because of this activity, I was up until 2AM. That’s right, TWO AM IN THE MORNING. And I work later today~ *shot by boss*…I’ve contacted a bunch of my work friends to see if anyone can cover for me..so seriously NOT up to dealing with the stupid public today. I’m hoping someone will step up (I’ll cover a shift of theirs at a later, unspecified date). *fingers crossed*

Professor Layton wasn’t the only thing keeping me up last night~ I had to deal with a upgrade on my virus detecting program..it just wouldn’t upgrade! OTL I managed to get that done, though.. YAY!

While waiting for the security upgrade, I couldn’t get on the internet, so I was bored…and since the upgrade allowed me to play with my comp a little bit~ I switched my background pic from this:

Previous background image~

to this:

my current desktop background~ with icons!

That’s an Arina Tanemura image from one of her older works: Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne~ I got back into reading Arina Tanemura again, thanks to a recent Chatchan conversation about AT and her mangas..I have all of the tankobons, plus several artbooks.. *shot*

I’ve also been watching a lot of My Little Pony lately, thanks to chats with online friends as well with IRL friends about MLP.. I got into it seriously recently, since I’ve been sick, so I dug out all the old VHS cartoon tapes I had~ and several of them were MLP. I’m thinking of maybe looking around to see if I can get some used DVDs of MLP~ I’ll see though..

Work’s coming up…Gotta get ready to go if someone doesn’t step up to take over for this stupid cat… later.

Dragon I bought today!

24 Sep

I bought this cute little dragon at the dollar store today for 99 cents!

Also got my hair cut. I also bought a dog leash, even though I don’t have a dog at the dollar store..I’ll show you later what I’m doing with it! xD

How I store my DS & 3DS games..and other stuff.

18 Sep

I’ve been asked by friends both IRL and online just how I store my DS and 3DS games, since I have very little storage space in my room.

What I do is I take both the game cartridge and the manual out of the jewel case and store the empty jewel case in my storage locker (if I want to sell/give away the game in the future, that’s easily get-able). I store the game cartridges that I am currently not using in sportscard binder sheets in a binder, and the manuals in a large recipe file box.

All the items (the binder, the sportscard pages and the recipe file box) are very cheap at the $1 store. I think I spent maybe $7 to 10 in total. Not too bad, eh?

Anyway… that’s basically how I do it. *shrug*  Plus it’s really useful, since I can just grab the binder and go if I’m going to be staying somewhere longer than 3 days.. 😀

Now, I just need to find the time to do a purse meme, a 111-question meme, several gift arts and several fan arts…in among my usual day to day life. OTL

Hi Everyone~~~

6 Sep

This blog will probably be used to put stuff up that I don’t want to put on my deviantart account:   http://blackcatz73.deviantart.com/

Anyway, if you already follow me on DeviantArt, Twitter, as well as various places here and there, I’m sure you know me pretty well..hopefully. xD

Let’s go~~ and have a little fun! ;D
