Brief life updateI'm slowly becoming inactive on here. ;A; It's not intentional; life is really getting in the way. I don't have a job yet, per se, but when my father found himself a job a few months back, it entitled us to having a little extra money to spare. So my father has employed my brother Jesse and I to doing housework during the week. Every two weeks, we'll get fifty dollars. We're fixed to get paid again this week.that my mom, brothers and I were going to Mohegan Sun that coming Thursday. And we did.
So again, it's not a job per se, but it's a little money in my pocket that I am adamant on saving for ConnectiCon this year. 'Cos I am very excited for it. So much so that I had a dream about it last night.
I actually meant to update on here last night, but my internet connection has been so finicky lately... it disconnects for thirty minutes, reconnects for two and a half minutes, craps out again... so needless to say I definitely need a new computer by next year. I may just have to spring for a laptop for Christmas this year... with an external hard drive for my writing fi
And BOY did we have a blast!!! Momma and I walked around, had dinner, shopped, looked around... Momma didn't play slots for more than a couple of minutes. Probably 'cos I was there and she didn't want to bore me.
But yeah, this place was pretty damn cool! I should have brought my camera... they had a lot of cool things and places, and my favorites were the waterfalls (they made the place smell oddly refreshing ) and the animatronic wolf they had sitting up on a little fake cliff. I got two pictures of it on my cell phone simply because it was that cool to me.
And needless to say, Momma and I went on a bit of a shopping spree. I've still got money saved for ConnectiCon and all, 'cos luckily I have self control (at least most of the time I do )
The first shop we went into was an Oriental shop with a lot of gorgeous, handmade jewelry, hair clips, statues... they had a big gold Buddha for sale worth about $800. It was pretty awesome-looking for sure, though!
I got myself a few pairs of earrings, a bracelet, and a turtle pendant! X3 And not to mention, a very Japanese-cat-esque coin bank. I'll post up a picture of it some time soon. It's adorable!
But the box it came in... :/ You can just TELL that a ton of things got lost in translation with the directions and what not.
Here's a few examples: (the stuff in these (blahblahblah) are my comments)
Best quality for your selection!
SKETCH MAP (this is the directions showing how it works)
1: Tumbler (it tumbles 'cos it has a rounded bottom)
2: Put into the coin
3: Turn on (in which it shows you taking off the top of the coin bank)
4: Take out the coin
1. Please do not place it in the following place.
a) nearby strong vibration.
b) in the dusty play.
2. Please do not touch it movement.
3. Please don't clean it case by using paint thinner or other chemical materials. Neuter (as if in neutering a cat or a dog??? ) soap or cleanser as cleaning liquid is recommendable.
Well... Poor translations aside, it's still adorable, and it is indeed a prevalent product. The best quality for my selection!
I've taken it out of the box a few times to look at it, but I don't have somewhere to put it just yet. :/ My room is sort of a mess right now, especially my desk. I've got a mound of plushies in one corner, a cat bed on the other, a bunch of my jewelry boxes, my Spock dolls, two cups of pens I rarely even USE, two notebooks, manga books, a Star Trek book, I have an Easy button around here somewhere...
Yeah, I need to organize my desk. And get a little corner shelf or something for my plushies so I can display them all proudly.
... Oh, and a snow globe half-buried by my plushies. I forgot it was there..
ANYWAYS. WOW, WHAT A SHOCK, I GOT OFF TRACK AGAIN. LULZORS. I LIKE FAKE CHEESE NOT REALLY.
Needless to say, my mom and I were very preoccupied with ourselves while my brothers were off seeing Rush, basking in their glory and being in awe. Too bad they couldn't afford the expensive concert T-shirts. :/ But they did buy their newest CD.
When all four of us were heading back out, we actually passed by a bunch of shops we'd actually missed! So whenever we go back there again, we oughta check them out. They looked pretty cool.
And so we had quite the adventure. Mohegan Sun was pretty awesome, and I look forward to returning their again one day to have even more fun. Most likely with my mom again.
Anyways, that really about does it. I may post up the two pictures I got of the animatronic wolf if I feel like it, but we'll see.
Till next time everybody, ja ne and guten nacht!
