I ordered my LFT PongPong v2 fullset.  I put him on a paypal payment plan, so I can wait out my bonus to pay for him as my 2 year work anniversary + successful new product launch + Paulie birthday + my birthday treat. He's so happy and mischievous looking-I think that will be nice to have in a compact doll. My Gram will love him.

If I'm lucky (very lucky) he'll get here by Paulie's "Gotcha Day" in late January.

Things have been going well on that grieving front lately. I've had some pleasant dreams. A dream where I'm certain he was forgiving me ending his suffering and comforting me. And I was able to look in his cage, which I had forgotten that I had set up as though he were coming home. It looked ready for new ferrets. Ron and I aren't ready for new ferrets on a personal level, but to look in the cage and have it look empty in a positive way was a very good moment. I still can't open his drawer without crying--but that is kind of a sacred space now. I could always, always, always find him there.

The dresser is about to fall apart next move-so I have to give it up. I only held onto it this move because it was Paulie's den and he hadn't passed until just after the move ... I plan to do something with the drawer--like convert it into a shadow box full of his favorite things. I can't let that go--which is a silly, sentimental thing. But it was his-I gave it to him and every piece of clothing tucked in it that he loved, and I wouldn't wear. He hid his babies there ... He let me tuck him into "bed" there.

I miss my Paulster. But really, it isn't as bad as it used to be.
So much for surprise parties. I wound up doing a lot of little sewing projects.

But have a scribble! Eventually these two are going to run into each other.

Annnnnd another. Oh dear, James … That Named One lineage of yours makes chamomile, um, intoxicating. Rory’s dealing with him well. You know, sometimes you just have to walk through a wild field of flowers that lower your inhibition. And dude-hair, did you just suddenly start rolling in the flowers?

1.  I spilled water on my MBP keyboard last weekend, which means a slow death to that machine. So I am officially adjusting to a new workstation ( External monitor, keyboard, and mouse + comparable EOL Mac Mini). So ... bear with me?

2. Temptations.  Fairyland is releasing a new LTF Pong version with their Halloween event. He captivates me. He's so ... Paulie. And his make up is perfect. I want the fullset ... I think ... I've held off on other dolls in memory of Paulie because they have all been MSDs (Tika was a contender with that wolf and teeth bit). I love my MSDs but they are a size that I realize are going to be display dolls for me (and fun sewing/character models).  This new LTF is the size of my silly nanoFreya I got as a gift with James and I am alway reposing her (which is doofy as I have yet to choose eyes or make her any clothes ...) in face, she sits in my hand so nice.  YoSD is accurately the size I should be seriously having fun with.  So portable and can chill on any shelf I have ...

The mock for JID Joshua (a head I was considering from Iples event, JID/MSD) next to new Pong with PSD wig.

And this is my beloved (DIP my dear friend and guardian) Paulie:
Paulie 126 by novemberkris

But I just had to get the new computer. As part of this, I want to upgrade to a Cintiq to try to ink faster (seriously on pen and paper, so quick). plus, I have a slew of November half to bills (car insurance, car repair, then emissions/safety inspection). But ... This feels like Paulie ... in the same way Paulie felt like Sharky (a beloved cat that passed too soon). Shark-Paul doll ... (giggles). Plus, I need to save like a good adult ... you know, because DC is DC and I have plans. 

And I know the truth ... I miss ferrets. (though this doll would add up to 1/4 of their lifetime vet bills, seriously ...) Ugh, and job is stressful and I can't keep up with pages because of crazy stuff and brain fried ness ... If I didn't have my grad school loans I'd just enjoy this little boy and order. But I admit, I'm trying to be responsible and keep going on the rainy day/emergency fund ...
