I kinda bought something, and now I need to buy something else to go with it, and it's driving me nuts because I don't like to talk about 'big' purchases until I have them in case I jinx them! But I'm really looking forward to it. I think. Or maybe I'm scared? Although I shouldn't be I guess.
In the meantime, I'll talk about something else instead...
I always have weird dreams when dolls are Inbound. When I ordered Gabrys, my very first (!!!) doll, I was terrified. Because he's an Iplehouse Chase in Special Real skin he wasn't exactly cheap, especially since I ordered clothes and a wig with him — none of which turned out to suit him after he arrived, but it's okay because Kirill has taken them now — which made him particularly terrifying. Add to that the fact I'd initially ordered him in Peach, only to decide maybe a day afterwards that that wasn't dark enough for the character and had to use the QA board to ask them to change it, which they very kindly did and I paid the extra... The first dream I had was shortly after that, where I dreamed a couple of staff members were grousing about me being a pain in the arse in Korean, which... probably wasn't really a dream, was it?
After he was dispatched, I had another dream: that the box was much smaller when it arrived, and it contained only his head and two shattered thigh pieces. (Luckily he arrived in one piece!)
The other notable one was after I ordered Milos, who's a Dollshe dark grey resin; I dreamed that when he arrived he was stark white and strung like a noodle, so when you picked him up he just flopped everywhere. Again, luckily, that didn't happen, although I had a similar experience when Scott arrived...
I've had others, but they haven't stuck with me in the way those did. I guess as I've become more experienced I'm a little less frightened, although I think I'll always have to maintain a healthy degree of caution given the state of the Royal Mail (isn't it funny how nothing worth under £20 goes missing?) and the fact they own ParcelForce, the (usually good) courier who delivers most of my EMS packages.
I kinda miss the weird dreams though.
A noodler with a doll obsession.
