Some Stuff!  
Hai peeps!!!!one 8D

Yes, I have caught up on the backlogged comments and entries and whatnot. Dear God. Imagine if I had more than fifteen friends; I'd be here forever. XD

Soooo... welcome to abitofadork7, who I am going to try very hard NOT to scar until at least a week has gone by!

I predict failure. XD

While I could really do to get a new camera that doesn't eat batteries for breakfast, nothing beats the cell phone camera for accessibility and speed. Like, wow. I love that thing. XD

So... Today I finally had to retire my Converses. :( They were two and a half years old, and I'd shredded the backs of the heels (my other shoes are going, too XD), and they were starting to hurt my right foot pretty severely.

On the upside, remember like three months ago when I bought another pair on sale? XD



I need to rough the new ones up. I took the old ones to the dust-ridden madhouse that is the Renaissance Faire like a week after I got them, so they never had that problem. XD

New ones are a'ight, though I was really fond of the sky-blue line around the rubber on the old ones. And the pink second tongue. XD And I'm not so hot on the blatant white stitching on the new ones. o_o

...did I really just spend that long talking about shoes? God, I really AM a girl. XD

Signed up for classes today... though the acting class I might take doesn't do auditions until the twenty-first of January, and they give you the course sign-up number then, so you have to have a backup... and if I do get in but decide not to take it, I'll have classes only Tuesdays and Thursdays, which will mean a FOUR-DAY WEEKEND EVERY WEEKEND...

Yeah.

I was going to stay I started Christmas shopping today, then I realized that wasn't true, 'cause I saw the thing I wanted for jenwryn weeks ago and bought it and have had it sitting on my desk at home since. XD Buuuut... I bought a gift for my step-dad today while I was at Walgreens, 'cause I've been ogling the thing thinking of him since I first saw it there weeks back.

What do you buy for the man who has everything, you ask?

AN AUTOMATED CHIHUAHUA THAT SINGS "DONDE ESTA SANTA CLAUS," OF COURSE!!

I am so not kidding. XD



It's one of his favorite songs on the Christmas album we have, though I suspect that's partially because it's one of the ones that drives my mother insane...

Mercifully, that's all I got. XD

That chihuahua made me crack up. ^^

Aw, I love it when my friends make friends with one another. <3

I was initially afraid to bring it into my house, and then I remembered that we have an automated reindeer that sings "Jingle Bells" anyway, so I can't do much more harm. XD

Friend sharing is fun! 8D

I put them in the new ones' box; I don't know if I'll be able to part with them. XD I'm waaaay too sentimental about stuff like this. XD

My excuse is that I can wear those ones on rainy days and keep the new ones nice longer. :P

Hee, I look forward to it! 8D

*innocence* :D

I'm trying to remember what I bought my stepdad last year... I think it was the year before than my sister and I split a T-shirt that read "I'm probably lying." XD

Hee! I have one that reads "I'm really easy to get along with once you people learn to worship me." XD

As easy as it is to buy for me, (books anyone?), my sisters purchased a shirt last year for me: "I'll be nicer if you try being smarter."

They still crack up over it. Seems that summarily fit me to a T!

Oh, don't get rid of your "Chucks". Mine sit in a box downstairs along with my old Keds from 8th grade. Okay... that sounds creepy. They look like they have plenty of wear left in them :) If you must get rid of them, send them off to another life where they will be loved and appreciated. Gah! I rather think of them like the Velveteen Rabbit.

Pathetically sentimental over shoes, evidently.

Haha! XD My stepdad has a variety of snarky T-shirts, many of which I have purchased for him. XD

I got my dad one one year that said "Trust me, I'm a lawyer." XD

I sincerely doubt I'll be able to throw them away; I'm terrible about getting rid of stuff I have sentimental attachments to. XD Odds are I will keep them in my closet for eons, on the potentially-true pretense that I'll wear them instead of my new ones when it rains. XD

Donde esta Santa Claus? El baño.

The Cons need a fitting tribute, like being sent off to Valhalla on a fiery pyre.

Or something.

Vitamin Ctierfal on December 3rd, 2008 07:45 am (UTC)
Probably. XD

I lol'd. XD That would be worthy of their shoely greatness! XD Though the city officials might have a bit of a problem with all the burning rubber...

Wow, what a coincidence. Yesterday, when I happened to do a spot of *my* christmas shopping, the heel on my favourite (dressy ^.~) thongs totally disintegrated. I'm not kidding, I heard these crackly noises like you hear when you step on pebbles and rocks, and I look down, and the heel had actually sunk into the actual sole of the shoe, and then, with about 30 seconds until I was officially late for my bus (which comes every half hour,) the heel actually came completely off and flew for about half a metre. Which elicited a couple of nervous stares from other charitable christmas shoppers. Yup, Story of My Life. ^^
Vitamin Ctierfal on December 3rd, 2008 07:51 am (UTC)
Shoes are just failing all over the world! XD

Your disaster sounds very imperiling. XD Heels collapsing? Late for buses?? Oh noes!! XD

These things always happen in front of people, don't they? XD
marissaabitofadork7 on December 3rd, 2008 09:02 pm (UTC)
Ah, say what you'd like to. I'm pretty sure I can handle it. I'm used to insanity.
Vitamin Ctierfal on December 3rd, 2008 09:22 pm (UTC)
If the fact that I'm the sort of human being who would buy a singing chihuahua for her stepfather didn't faze you, I think we're off to a good start! XD
marissaabitofadork7 on December 3rd, 2008 10:13 pm (UTC)
It doesn't faze me nearly as much as it probably should.

Seriously. If you told me that, like to my face, I'd be like,

"That sounds amazing, and I'm really annoyed now that I can't hear it sing." Or something along those lines.

Singing chihuahuas are pretty amazing. Who wouldn't want one? XD
Vitamin Ctierfal on December 4th, 2008 12:58 am (UTC)
It's veeeery annoying. XD

Which is of course the reason I'm bringing it into my house, where I'll be for an entire month come Christmas. XD
marissaabitofadork7 on December 4th, 2008 01:19 am (UTC)
Exactly! I mean, what else would you do with it? Not wrap it up and wait til Christmas.

There's no fun in that. Annoying people is fun. I have to say that I'm particularly gifted at it, if I put my mind to it.

Or sometimes even just my talking to myself ticks them off. Fun to watch them get mad...
