I had news! My new camera is on its way and should be arriving on the 19th or 20th! Eeee, I can't wait. I'm completely disenchanted with my current camera (having exhausted its capabilities) and can't wait to try my hand at a new one with upgraded functions.
All you reader-types can expect an influx of doll, pet, and holiday pictures! My girlfriend and I are having a guest over for Christmas so I'll definitely be taking pictures of All The Things, as it were. ;) Eee camera camera camera~
My Christmas shopping included books and more books this year. My girlfriend gifted me with Spectra and Skull Shores Ghoulia, the latter having turned up at our local Wal*Mart. I didn't care for her swimsuit so she's been redressed in some ex-Bratz outfits and looks sassy indeed. I love
her curly hair!
Kalli picked up Torelai and Skull Shores Abbey, also discovered at our previously unstocked Wal*Mart. I told her Torelai was the hype of the season, right up there with the original Abbey (still very HTF). We're hoping Abbey will show up on Amazon for under $20 next month, a la all good things come to those who wait.
I conquered the evils of Craigslist in order to get a futon frame and mattress. My efforts paid off with an excellent frame and a serviceable mattress; it's basically your standard sort of futon padding. I think it's really comfortable, but it's a little too big for the frame and might work out better as a bed if it's put on the floor. In the meantime it makes a very comfortable nest-sofa that Kalli really likes. We put cushions and small fleece blankets all over it.
Apologies about all the dust that's been collecting on this journal. It'll probably see a resurgence of updates very soon, pending new camera and all. :)
Bonus picture of the futon!Image shows a light-colored wooden frame with a black futon mattress. It's resting in the 'bed' position with an autumn-themed fleecy blanket and cushion. Three cats are on it - two ginger kitties and one pure black kitty. The ginger kitties belong to Kalli and are named Sunfire and Phoenix. The black kitty is Piper.
