Testing out my new crossposting footer.
I finished the Mukai Osamu fanlisting today! It turned out completely different from what I originally was making, but I like the result. Go, look at Prettypants.
If you like him, do join! It's so much more fun with two. <3
Today Charter (our internet provider) had its rewards redemption center open with Mad Men merchandise. According to my mom, what they normally have is pretty crappy, so she's been letting our reward points accrue and today it paid off. The sale started at 11am, and I was able to go there at 5 'til (It was first-come, first-serve!) and get some sweet things. I got us a snowglobe, a soup mug, and the season 2 soundtrack...taking us from nearly 20k points to just over 100. *laugh* Well, that's why we saved up! Really excited for these things though. My mom loves snowglobes, and I didn't tell her I got one. I'm hoping she'll be surprised and the website didn't send a confirmation email or anything. (Additionally, I found S2 at Target yesterday for $20. =3)
I called her to let her know I got to the sale successfully, and it turned out she was leaving work to catch the Metro back to the suburbs, as she had a doctor's appointment at 2:30. That wasn't for a few hours, so she asked if I wanted to meet her and an hour later I was at the station. We went out to lunch and then thrifting in Belleville - I bought eight old vinyls (I decorate with them and listen to them when I can with my mom's player), a strawberry napkin holder, and a strawberry artwork thingie all for under $3. I love that thrift store. We're going back, I've decided. Everything's so cheap. The most I paid individually was 50c for the artwork.
After that she went to her appointment and I walked around downtown some more, ending up in an antique store and buying these lovelies:
Vintage issues of Seventeen, one each from 1959, 1960, and 1961. They're not in the greatest condition, but they're far from falling apart and indeed very readable! I haven't decided if I want to keep them whole (I don't think they'll be very valuable in the state they're in) or design my apartment with the pages.
I've been packing and packing and more packing since getting home. I'm so bored. =/ Mom, stop talking on the phone and let's go watch Hell's Kitchen~~
