Success, snagged the shirt I wanted! Also had a fangirl moment. My mall's selection of anime memorabilia is tiny, but I found and just had to buy a keychain of L in his usual crouching pose. I shall wear it on my purse in honor of my very first anime. That is how I rationalize spending six bucks on a keychain. :)

Also got comfy socks (I have such a thing for socks it's a borderline fetish, rather like many women with shoes), which my aching feet are thanking me for. And a French-English dictionary, because I'm trying to brush up on my old first foreign language. Then I got the hell out of Barnes & Noble, because one of those skank 'Real Housewives' is doing a book-signing and I didn't want to risk being contaminated. I comforted myself with a nice milkshake, felt slightly ill after eating too many french fries, and now I am ready to unwind in my pjs and maybe get some writing done.

All in all, I handled the day well, got all my assignments in on time and haven't freaked out and terrified the normies lately. Much. So...pretty good. I hope you all, my dears, are having a nice day. If you see the Choir, tell them they're back on duty and I want them here pronto.

Dude. Socks. I have enough of them that I could wear a different pair for about three months without repeating. Talk about a fetish? I has it. This place accounts for about 2/3rds of my enabling:

And online shopping is truly the best thing that ever happened to me. Never leaving the house unless totally necessary? I'LL TAKE IT.

OMG you enabler. :)

Why hello fellow sock fetish person! I like/wear funky colored tube socks :)

Victory for getting the shirt! And great news on the whole school stuff.
Also, Cloud wants me to tell you he's currently playing with Mr. Bubbles.

Oooooh I want to put on my mismatched knee-socks. XDDD Either that or my toe socks, OH i love those. But where are they?

Hope: *blushes, sits on feet* I don't know!

And huzzah for the new shirt!!! You must tell me what it looks like. :D

:) Tell Cloudy it's nearly his bedtime.

Out of curiosity, what are they playing?

It's...sort of black and silver, with an empire waistline, and it FLOWS. The pattern makes me think of fleur de lis 9which may be why I like it) although it doesn't actually have one.

Huh. I guess that makes me the friendly neighborhood dope peddler--I used to knit socks quite a bit. There's a German brand of sock yarn that knits up into stripes, way cool. I need to get back into knitting sometime soon.

Cloud is trying to teach him to run in circles by giving him treats.
Mr. Bubbles is chirping and "popcorning".

Cloud will be there in ten minutes. I hope he doesn't get punished for being late :)

Popcorning? Please elucidate.

Cloud: *happily running in circles*

I have an L keychain on my purse too! *squees*

I'm always losing socks, I can't ever find both halves of the same pair. *laughs* I blame the goblins. It's why I've never worn a matching pair of socks. *grins* Do you have that problem, too?

Oh popcorning is when guinea pigs hop into the air, and almost immediately after landing, hop up again. Like a little kernel that suddenly jumps and pop into a fluffy white puff of popcorn. Mr. Bubbles doesn't turn into a popcorn but just chirps and hops around. Very lovely to watch :)

You love socks too?! I happen to like comfy, colorful/patterned ones. People are always buying me them for presents. What are your favorite type?
Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 12:26 pm (UTC)
I like the soft fluffy ones, like little fur blankets for your feet. :)

Oh! I vaguely remember my guinea pig doing something like that. I thought he was just a spaz.

Cloud: "Mr. Bubbles likes me!" *twirls*

*squee*

It happens to me now and then...yesterday I lost one half of one of my favorite pairs, too, a fluffy-soft white. I hope it turns up...

I heart socks too!! I like shoes too but I like socks more. There is a whole store in my mall based around socks! I got emoticon socks with different emoticons on them and rubber ducky socks with rubber duckies on them! YAY SOCKS! -dances in socks-

Sounds like you've had a good (on the 31st since I'm replying on the 2nd... sorry)
Thursday, September 2nd, 2010 09:11 pm (UTC)
I hope it turns up, too. *hugs*

I don't have drawers and drawers and baskets because not enough drawers of socks or anything... <.<... >.>...
And undies. I'm kind-of-sort-of-maybe-justateensybit of a 5/$25 undies whore. Just a leetle.
