Home from the Thanksgiving trip, where the dogs had a ball with Zion and I chatted a surprising amount with Jaime's grandma, so I think it's time for my holiday wishlist! )
rinnia: (brilliant)
- This is pretty much the greatest thing ever.
- Working on dolls. They're coming along really nicely, actually.
- Finished and mailed out [livejournal.com profile] jengeorge's Alex Day present. Because I'm an idiot, though, I completely forgot to take any pictures, so I guess that one's not going on the craft blog. Balls.
- Jaime's been giving me my birthday presents early and they are AAAAAWESOME. More on that later when I stop being lazy and take pictures.
- Started collecting series 8 Lego minifigs. So far I've gotten the football player and the robot; I really just want the vampire bat.
- Ecofelt is pretty much the greatest thing ever. Just saying.
- Except maybe for Ken Burns documentaries. I am a boring adult, I guess, because I think they're all fascinating. And Lois Long is my idol now.

Got my random shirt from Woot! in the mail today. It's this one. I am pleased.

I am also sick of Monopoly. It makes me inexplicably sad, to the point where I deliberately made a dumb deal than cost me a guaranteed victory because I didn't want to spend an hour just bleeding people dry. I'm voting for Clue next time. Or Cards Against Humanity. No more Monopoly. Harumph.

I am sick and thus not only sleepy and uncomfortable, but also falling behind in my crafting schedule DAMNIT, and it's a month until my birthday, so... birthday wishlist to cheer me up. Yeah. Whee! )

Addendum to add Tommy Hawk and Pucky the Whale (and maybe also the Connecticut Whale), because HOSHIT MASCOTS YO.

Woke up so sore that I didn't take the dogs for their morning walk until 4pm. Ugh. A handful of advil and some Korean instant coffee later, though, I'm feeling pretty good.

Anyway, on to the main point of this post - SPORTS. I read this fic that's widely recced and I didn't really like it, but I was intrigued by the people those character archetypes were representing, so I read a primer on them and (even though it was kind of skewed and tinhatty) liked it. I watched the funny videos, then the highlight videos, then just some normal game videos, because I remembered that I love hockey. I grew up in Alaska and my dad took me to college hockey games almost every weekend. Just like that, it all came back - I was throwing out terminology and looking up stats and telling Jaime to watch the players, not the puck. The puck is too hard to follow if you're not reeeeeally used to it, and besides, it's just a puck. It slides around. The players are what make it happen.

This is getting too rambly. Point is I LOVE HOCKEY. I forgot that at some point, probably because I'd never really gotten into NHL stuff, as I didn't have a specific team I loved (outside of that college one from when I was little - GO SEAWOLVES!), one to get all fanatical over and call MY team. Well, now I do. I can't ever regret reading that crummy fic, because it brought back my pucking sport into my life and it introduced me to what would become my team.

In summation, BLACKHAWKS! FUCK YEAH!

I was tooling about their NHL gear site last night, as my Junpei hat's getting a bit worn so I'm looking to get a new lazy day cap, when the Toys & Games category caught my eye. Being a mental eight-year-old, I had to take a look. I was scrolling down, chuckling to myself and thinking, "I wish they had dolls. Like, a doofy looking Kaner plush that OH MY GOD THEY DO."

Seriously. They do.

Once I'd gotten the laughter under control ("Bleacher Creatures", snerk), I sighed. "Tempting, but I could never get him. It just wouldn't be right unless there was also HOLY SHIT THEY HAVE TAZER TOO."

Now I just need to come up with a way to convince Jaime that we must purchase those monstrosities and a baseball cap - can't forget why I was shopping in the first place. They're way cheaper than a jersey! It's a steal! I only wish there was a Sharpy doll too. Not to go with Kaner and Tazer; just for me. <3

FFXIII-2 is fucking fantastic. The plot is good, the gameplay is good, and Hope! I loved him in the first game; he's been my PS3 background since I unlocked that theme. It's really great to see him ten years later, all grown up and hot successful. Seeing Serah come into her own was great as well, and I can't help but love Noel. The ending left me a bit stunned and annoyed, but I'll probably be first in line to buy XIII-3, so good job, Square, I guess. Oh, and I love the rambunctious chocobos. Not only are they awesome and pretty, their music is BADASS. And hilarious. Pretty much the greatest song ever.

In other news, I totally ship Noel/Hope. Started out because they're both so lovely, but now I have legit ship reasoning. Sigh.

In other other news, I've been oddly productive today. Working on plush for [livejournal.com profile] ontdcreepy's Spring Crawl, cleaning the kitchen, unpacking the most gorgeous doll ever, finishing my art for [livejournal.com profile] originalbigbang's Reverse Bang... help me keep this going?

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] anglepoiselamp:
1) Name a fandom. Or two. Or ten. However many you want!
2) I'll draw a picture of my favorite character from said fandom.

Ready? Go!

Edit(11:45pm): I'll start this thing off with some fandoms Jaime suggested: Mythbusters, Persona 4, Community )
Edit(3/4): Have some Glee and FFXIII-2! )

THIS SPLIT IS NOT GUARANTEED - I'm waiting to make sure I don't take a huge loss with the mini P4 split before I commit to this one. However, I'll take claims now and simply wait to order until I'm sure I can do this.


Interested in getting one of these cute fellas?
Details and claim list behind the cut. )

I bought my family a pressie!

Also, I've been watching Top Gear all day. It makes me want to use Britishisms. See: "pressie".
