So it's been a good while since my last post on here! I was meaning to do a hospital-gets part 2 post (yes, there was a part 2 to the whole misadventure - don't worry, I'm okay now for reals!), but I got lazy, so that never happened ... xD I'll also need to do a grail post soon, since I got some very exciting gets over the last few months (here's a teaser: they are some very special pokedolls that I'd been after for a while. Points for anyone who can guess who they are! ^^)
But anyways! That's not what this post is about! About a month ago, it was my 22nd birthday, but a few days ago I got a very special late-birthday present from my best friend that I just had to share with you guys! (Sorry for the quality of the pictures - took them off my iPod, so they're not the greatest ;_;)
-melts into a little pile of goo- Girafarig!!! She's ... she's perfect!! Ahhhhhhhh-!! -takes deep breath- Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! SURPRISE MUCH?! xD I haven't been able to put her down ever since ... I keep getting distracted every 5 minutes when I'm trying to study cus I just ... need ... to pat her ... MORE .... xD!!! She's waaaay too soft and adorable, lol.
So - FUNNY STORY about this. My friend had been planning this gift for several months with Caffwin, around the same time that I was getting quotes from her to have one of these made myself. I was told that she wouldn't be able to take one on for a few months, so I went away unsuspecting, looking forward to the day when I might be able to commission my very own Girafarig. (Little known fact: Girafarig was my favourite pokemon back in the day before I discovered Umbreon.) So when I suddenly saw Caffwin post a Girafarig pokedoll on her deviantart, I was simply amazed at how PERFECT it was, and at the same time I was plotting evilly as to how I could steal it for my own nefarious purposes (which mainly involved cuddling, petting and playing with those cute little spines down its back, mwahahaha xD). I quickly showed my friend the page and I was like 'LOOK AT THIS THING IT'S PERFECT AND I NEED TO GET MYSELF ONE' ... let's just say, I quickly became a bit suspicious with his slightly-off behaviour, though I couldn't quiiiite put my finger on it at the time.
Long story short: THE TRICKERY IS REAL! xD Best. Birthday. Surprise. Ever. And I know he'll be reading this post at some stage so thank you so SO SOOOOO MUCH! (And like a million more 'thank you's xD) And thank you Caffwin for making Girafarig SO CUUUUTE and ah!! Well played, guys. Well. Played. ;D
So that was my surprise gets post! xD Hopefully it won't be toooo long before I put my grail gets post up. ^^ Thanks for reading! :D
