The Dreamer of a Thousand Names for Starlight

I must be at work before the sun rises, why am I still awake?

In a fit of doll-induced insanity, I am attempting to stay up until 3:30 am to bid on something at the last possible second on Ebay so I can actually get it. I am silly, yes.


Got woken up this morning by a call from my boss. Everyone from Cafe called in sick today so she needed warm bodies. I agreed to fill in. Was okay up until the last three hours. OMG, SO MANY PEOPLE. And I wasn't able to take a break -- PEOPLE. (And I smell like coffee, ew.)

Anyway, last night I went to dinner with my dad. It was the first time I'd seen him in... like, a long time. He seems kinda lonely. I don't know what is up with him and his wife, but she spent Christmas with her kids and he spent it alone. He is also retiring and he says he feel ambivalent about it. I'd say -- the man has spent half a century, nearly, putting men and women into space, most of that in the same capacity (he is the main engineer for NASA on the Space Shuttle Main Engine). His job literally defines him. I am fearfull about him retiring, actually. You hear so many stories about people just dying after they don't have work to do... So anyway, we went to Red Lobster for dinner and then he took me to Michael's so I could pick out my Christmas presents. Yay, crafty things!

Okay, now I am going back to mindless doll rambling, you have been warned.

I want SD13 Yori. She is pretty!!! I wants. There is one up on Ebay, but I could also order her directly from Volks... WANTS. Fortunately, inkwraith managed to talk me out of buying her (so there, silensy!!!), but...

Seriously, this is silly, I do not need another doll. The last one I ordered isn't even here yet! This hobby obsession is getting way out of hand.
