Dollies!

Ok so I'm obviously still obsessing over dolls, but I'm almost done with the ones I really want to have, and that's a good thing!

So right now I'm working on Mikki and I have a head decided on. I'm 95% sure on the body but don't have it yet, and I'm also considering performing some severe modifications to his head. But I have to wait for the body so that I don't screw up the proportions. D8

After this I just need to find an Issa doll.

Just so you all know what Mom and I have to live with.

At about 1 in the morning a semi-truck cab pulled in front of our house and parked. No trailer. We're not near a truck route and there's nothing immediately by us that would warrant a semi in the area.
After an hour or two I called the cops. They came and checked it out, and left. I didn't request confirmation so I had no idea what was going on, but trusted their judgment. But apparently they were as perplexed as I was.

Turns out it was my dad's cousin stopping by, unannounced.

With his 18 month old Dachsie.

So we locked our 18 year old cat upstairs with food, but no litter box.

Why?

Because Dad thought now would be a good time to wash the thing.
So he basically told our geriatric cat that even though she's highly stressed about this stupid puppy tearing through the house, even though she has kidney problems, even though she goes to the bathroom a LOT especially on hot days (and today is a hot day), that she couldn't go to the bathroom for a few hours.


Thankfully she was considerate enough to pee on the bathroom rug and not the bed or the carpet. Some of his clothes would have been better, but she did pee on his side of the rug. :D

FTR we have a smaller spare litter box and while he was hosing off the regular one I filled up and dropped off the spare for her.

Never underestimate the determination of a geek.

[23:38] RivetSPOOn: long story
[23:38] RivetSPOOn: Bathroom has a huge trail of ants leading to the carpet
[23:38] RivetSPOOn: mom and I get rid of them, I use the vacuum to get them out of the carpet
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: that corner goes black when I plugged it in to that particular socket
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: rather, after.
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: so I'm guessing it was a coincidence
[23:39] ysizm: yea
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: power comes back on, goes off, comes on
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: stays on
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: goes off, comes back on while I'm watching netflix
[23:39] RivetSPOOn: goes off again.
[23:40] RivetSPOOn: Hasn't come back on for 15 minutes
[23:40] RivetSPOOn: well shit.
[23:40] RivetSPOOn: so I contort my shoulder to get the modem and router plugs out from the dusty corner
[23:40] RivetSPOOn: plug them into the battery back up
[23:41] RivetSPOOn: Mom, how long does the battery last?
[23:41] RivetSPOOn: 20 minutes
[23:41] RivetSPOOn: ...........
[23:41] ysizm: D:
[23:41] RivetSPOOn: went to find another extension cord
[23:41] RivetSPOOn: meaning I've plugged them into one already
[23:41] RivetSPOOn: and one of them is ON an extension cord
[23:42] RivetSPOOn: so there's this line of 3 extension cords going around the corner and into the bathroom
[23:42] RivetSPOOn: presto, I have internet :D

It's really never going to happen.

I think I can say that with confidence now.

I can lock them away and throw away the key and not regret it.

Because nobody will ever come looking for them again.

So why does it still hurt?

Adventures in sewing

So I borrowed pants from my friend's dad so that I could construct a pattern from them. Unfortunately this requires me man-handling the area where his baby-maker goes, and I can't help but feel weird about it. X(

The things I do for dolls.
