Obama action figure
from Japan. I think I especially like the pose with the katana and wakizashi.
I have been sneezing pretty much constantly since I got to work today. I know they say that feline viruses don't (or rarely) make the jump to humans, but I still feel like I caught Sora's cold.
I have $20 in Amazon.com gift certificates. What should I buy and why?(caveat: usually when I ask for recs, I end up not buying what people have recced, for whatever perverse reason, but I do end up putting a number on my wishlist and buying them later.)
In other news, I took the opportunity of Sora being out of it on Monday to make kanzashi (and myrialux
helpfully came over and entertained Sora on Sunday while I made more). I need to finish them up - put them on clips and the like - so hope to have pictures of them soon. :) I'm going to the Ikkicon
artist alley in Austin in early Feb, so need to increase my stock. :)
And speaking of which: anyone have any recs of a hotel/motel reasonably near downtown Austin
that offers internet in its rooms (preferably wireless, preferably free, but pay and wires will do), is less than $100/night (preferably less than $75), and is not hot and cold running cockroaches? myrialux
is coming down with me, but not attending the con, and will need to telecommute some on Friday.
Sora's new toy is a long twist tie. He loves it so much that he takes it with him. A moment ago, it just came up on the desk, and then it went back down after Sora decided that I was ticked off enough, having yelled at him all day, that I was Not to be Trifled With.
...Oh damn. It's back up here. That's what you get when you have no short-term memory to speak of.
That was Sora's contribution.
Kanzashi I made this week, which I hope to finish posting before KILLING THIS KITTEN WHO IS DRIVING ME NUTS WHY OH WHY DID I EVER THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA HE BETTER SETTLE DOWN AND SLEEP AND LOOK CUTE VERY VERY SOON OR I'M GOING TO BOOT HIS FUZZY LITTLE BUTT TO THE MOON0p-[980
Yes, he hit the keyboard again at that point. Anyway.( Kanzashi!Collapse )
