Today, I spent far too much money.
First of all, this morning, I had to get a new phone. Because my old one decided it wasn’t going to let me hear people unless I put them on speakerphone and that’s just damn awkward sometimes. The phone I got was on sale for $0.99….but then I had to get a case for it, because I drop things like I’m paid to do so….and then lololol Massachusetts apparently has a $30 “phone tax”. Wot even?
Anywho, I got a phone:
Then I got my nails done. Because I’m shallow like that or something? No but really, I just like having my nails done….plus I’m shit at doing them myself.
So…nails. With completely-not-intentional James Bond polish:
So I had some time to kill at the mall after that, and it actually wasn’t terribly crowded….because it was a crap mall….but I went to Hot Topic because, you know, things were on sale.
I got some ribbons:
And then I found this….HE WAS THE LAST ONE LEFT AND HE WAS ALL ALONE AND I FELT BAD:
Then two of my friends picked me up. We got some food, got lost trying to find olives….and then we went to That’s E (the best comic book store ever)…..
They were having a sale:
A BIG sale:
A BUY-TWO-USED-TRADES-GET-TWO-FREE sale:
And then I had to pick up my regular comics because I’m SO BEHIND:
I HOPE I CAN BUY GROCERIES FOR THE REST OF THE SEMESTER.
CTcon To-Do List:
ConnectiCon is just 18 days away and I still have SO MUCH to do. D:
Here’s my list for all the internet to see, so you guys can harass me when you see that I’m on Tumblr fangirling Steve Rogers instead of getting things done…
-Finish Romana I cosplay
- alter shirt
- dye shirt
- buy things to make tracer
- make the tracer
-Figure out whether I’m cosplaying Sherlock or Jim on Sunday
- acquire a purple shirt of sex OR
- acquire a Jim-ish suit (grey?)
-finish sewing new letting to TARDIS dress
-figure out if I’m bringing my Zira costume
-decide if I’m bringing fem!Four
- if so, buy Jelly Babies
-possibly make a fem!Captain America costume
- get blue tights
- make a dress/skirt/something
- get a blonde wig
- put said wig into victory rolls
- acquire red boots
- acquire red gloves
- laugh at the fact that I actually think I can accomplish this in 18 days or less
-find someone with a room attached to the convention center who will let me leave a bag in their room every morning so I don’t have to lug costume changes around with me.
-Determine a place and time for the two (possibly three) meetups/photoshoots I’m running
- one on Friday just for Doctor Who
- one on Saturday for all-BBC
- one on Sunday just for “shippy” photos of the above?
-print up business cards with the Boston Whovians’ info on them as well as the meetup places/times, once you determine them
-figure out who is going to the con so that you have people to hang out with and aren’t just standing around by yourself.
-figure out how I’m getting to the con on Thursday and how I’m getting home on Sunday….that might be slightly important
just watched an episode of Pawn Stars and they got a pair of Houdini’s handcuffs and then they were putting them on and fooling around with them and I simultaneously wanted to teleport to Las Vegas and beat them and curl up in a corner and cry.
Having a cat is problematic when you want to go to bed.
She has been occupying various areas of my very small bed for the better part of four hours. I have work in the morning. Welp.
Just in case anyone was ever curious about what I do on the rare occasions during the summer when I do not have work and am home by myself all day with my laptop.
Translation: this is a two minute video of me dancing around like an idiot to my swing playlist on Spotify.
This. is. TUMBLR.
This is me.
So my school showed a movie on a big screen on the quad for SpringWeek.
It was Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
REICHENBACH FEELS EVERYWHERE. NO MATTER WHAT INCARNATION. THE FEELS ARE THERE.
and yet, surprisingly, I was only told to shut up once. XD
