Anyway! This time I made a serious effort to take some meetup pictures. Kind of.
So I set off to Melbourne early so I could go to the aquarium with firevie and rally274. This is where out lack of luck began, so I was late, and rally didn't make it until hours later. ;n; FRIDAY THE 13TH GUYS. NEVER AGAIN. But no matter! Me, firevie, and her adorable daughter
Napoleon: WHAT EVEN IS THAT? ;A;
Napoleon: Why are there so many hoomans? I can't see the squishy round birds. D:
Napoleon: PLEASE DON'T PUSH ME IN. THESE FISH COULD EAT ME WHOLE.
Napoleon: WHY IS THERE A SNAKE IN AN AQUARIUM? NO WAY AM I GOING NEAR THAT NO./squirms back into bag
Napoleon: ..I.. is that a.. s-s-shark?
Me: And that's probably the smallest one you'll see.
Napoleon: OH GOD.
Napoleon: .. I can't even take this one seriously. It looks like he's trying to be Dracular.
Me: SO MUCH BLUEEEEEE~
Napoleon: Hey, a Mantine!
Napoleon: WHAT EVEN IS THAT? ;A;
Napoleon: A..AHHHH. TWO. THAT IS IT I'M GETTING OUT OF HERE!
After I realised it was 20:13, and we had to meet the others by 12:30, we made Napoleons wish come true and sauntered out of the aquarium. Even though all the lifts decided to HATE US COLLECTIVELY and refuse to come to our call. Then we were late for trains. And more lift trouble. And. Ugh. 45 minutes late, we found sugar0coated and [Bad username: tortoises"] (aka JEDI_AMARA) and after apologing SO MANY TIMES
I may have gotten a bit slack with my photo taking after this, but I got this from my phone:
Custom Pokedoll plush meeting up to squish little handmade bodies together, while we got assaulted by a space invading wasp. sugar0coated's Eeveelu plush always bend my resolve to not get Eevee merch.
YOU WILL NOT BREAK ME GOOD SIR.
But yeah, besides all the lateness, I had such a great time hanging with you all. ;u; Maybe next school holidays we can do something again? Or you guys could organise something whenever I MEAN WHATEVER. :'D Thanks everyone for the awesome meetup! <333
NOW. When I got home from the meetup, all tuckered out and feeling bad about all the lateness, I got home to this!
I had an idea what they were..
Though this one came to me a bit ruffed up! At first when I saw this, I paniced, since it looked like it had been opened. ;n; But the outside looked alright, so I wasn't super stressed when I opened it up. :'D
LOOKADIM! I'm not 100% why, but I've really liked the look of this plush ever since I first saw it in an old sales post. Most of the old Tomy plush I'm not a fan of because of their old durp look, but this one I love for that very reason! Plus it's so soft and just. Idk. I FIND IT CUTE GUYS OK I THINK IT'S ADORABLE. <3
And then the second package! I saw it saw it was from rocket_chick, and was all "Oh! It's those chocolates or whatever she said she was sending me for my birthday! Yay late birthday present!" Then I opened it, and.. umm.
.. AND THEN I EXPLODED WITH LULZ AND JOY. rocket_chich MADE ME A VENUSAUR POKEDOLL. KIND OF. IT IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER GOTTEN IN THE MAIL. For the first 5 minutes of my looking at it no coherent words left my mouth. It was mostly just squeeling. And flailing. It was really attractive guys you don't even know. I just. I could not believe. I STILL CAN NOT BELIEVE. TEGAN YOU ARE AN INCREDIBLE. JUST. YOU. <333 Hopefully this year I can break our tradition and actually get your birthday present to you IN TIME
I decided to name his Augustus. Gus to his friends
I haven't decided yet. :U
SHE ALSO SENT ME A NOTE which was the cutest thing and I will cherish for ever. Even more so because it had VENUSAUR. POKEDOLL. RIGHT THERE IN INK. GUHHHHH. It refused to be photographed BUT IT'S THERE I PROMISE. I still don't know whether to put this letter in my notebook of notes and doodles I get with packages, or in my actual collection. While I continue to be indecisive it will stay on my desk, and I will smile whenever I see it. ;u; Ilu so much bb oh man. <333
Oh! And speaking of my birthday! IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY. I turned 17 on April 9th, and none of my family was around for the majority, and most of my irl friends forgot, but that's ok. :U;; I STILL GOT SOME THINGS. AND POKEMON THINGS TOO. SO THAT'S NICE.
Oh the beauty of the terrycloth ploosh. <3 These guys all came staggered around my birthday; Treecko, like, a few weeks before
And here is my terrycloth beanie side collection as it currently stands! As you can see, it got a pretty big boost from my birthday this year. |D I'm not really looking to complete this collection; just get what I like! IDK I'M JUST ROLLIN' WITH IT~
Quagsire is still my forever love. <3
COLLECTION UPDATE DONE COOL.
Oh and also! If any of you guys have a Wurmple Kid for sale, I'd quite like that. c: Shipping to Australia.
