USPS.com says my new inks should be arriving tomorrow or Thursday!!! They just reached the sorting center downtown this afternoon/evening coming out of San Diego, so depending on how early they get to my local PO and get sorted for the delivery truck, I might just be lucky enough to see them tomorrow. :) The only thing is that the package has to arrive by 7 or 8am, I forget which, to get on the delivery truck that departs around 8:30/8:45pm and gets to our block around noon. So most likely it will be Thursday, but I can be surprised!

These are the inks I ordered, after much debate:


Twilight Blue
- because I love teal inks and this one has lovely shading according to the tests/examples I saw at the FountainPenNetwork forums. I want to use it for general use at work, so it's a nice, dark teal. plus it's got more saturation than the cartridges i had been using, which sometimes tended towards grey.
- check out the FPGeeks' Inkcyclopedia for this ink


Green/Black
- again, dark to be suitable for use at work, but still nicely saturated with color. i chose this because it's so dark but has the wonderful green tints. on my screen, this swatch from Diamine is a little darker/more blue than some of the examples at FPN


Eclipse
- and here is a nice black - except that it has great purply and blue bits and is a little bit metallic at times. the swatch is definitely more blue than the purple that all the examples on FPN showed. i wanted to have a pen filled with black for forms and such that the green or teal wouldn't be appropriate for, but i didn't want a true black, so there's this one.

These are the colors on my list to get soon:


Grape
- this is a lovely purple with reddish and grey tones, but nice and dark. it's saturated, but not super bright, which is something i like - so many of the more true, bright purples aren't colors i like to write with regularly these days (and I already have a bunch of Waterman purple cartridges and Diamine Imperial Purple cartridges if I want a bright shade - imperial purple is here)


Syrah
- I was thinking of "merlot brown", but after looking at comparison swatches and such, I think I'm going to go with Syrah, instead - it's a bit more saturated and deeper, less of a washed out brownish red. i don't want a crimson or bloodred ink, but i like this with the pink tones to it


J. Herbin's Larmes de Cassis
- when I'm ready for a sliiiightly more whimsical ink, I think this will be the one - I love how it's a purply reddish pink, nice and deep (this swatch seems to be a bit pale)

I love colors! paints and pastels and inks. when I was in high school, i had an enormous collection of Gelly Roll pens - over 35, I believe? almost every single color available (there were a few I lost or didn't bother with because they were useless for my purposes - i got a pack of the lightning ones, for example, but didn't get further additions to that line, because the silver element made a huge mess in my notebooks and was hard to read).

Here is my wishlist on JetPens.com, where you can see some of the pens and inks I like (keep in mind that I've already purchased several items on the page - I maintain it for repurchasing purposes): http://www.jetpens.com/wishlist?wish_list_id=267ea085d9b2081d

My most recent pen which I ADORE is the Sailor Clear Candy, which I bought in metallic pink. This one:


It writes like a dream, especially with the Sailor black ink cartridge that came with it - and it was only $16.50! I bought pink Clear Candy ink cartridges to replace the black, but it's likely going to be in charge of the Eclipse ink once I use up the pink, or if the pink turns out to be unsuitable for my notes at work. FWIW I don't really care to spend more than $30 on a pen, and it's hard to convince myself to spend more than $20. At least for now...

If you'd like to try a fountain pen and don't want to invest too much, I've found that the Platinum Preppy is rather nice. I'm not entirely fond of the color of the ink in the blue-black one (it tends to be a little grey for me - I like my inks to be highly saturated, though!), but it's only $3.30 on JetPens and is easy to use. Plus, it looks pretty cool!



If you click the image, it will take you to the fine point blue-black version. I like fine points best, but a medium point is also available (I'd say in the Preppy, an F is similar to a .50mm Pilot G-2 gel pen, while an M is similar to the standard sized G-2 - .75mm? 1mm? but the size isn't exact). If you like it, once the cartridge runs out, you can then convert the pen to use bottled ink via eyedropper, which is pretty nice - bottled ink is loads more economical than cartridges, and there's less plastic waste.

I'm so excited I'm going on a trip in four days yayayay flying flying flying across the country whoooo. also the forecasted lows are only in the 40s, so it won't be quite as cold as I'd been bracing for.


I hope the books I ordered yesterday get here by Wednesday. There was a decent discount and free 3-day shipping, but the website is showing them as not being sent out until Tuesday, even though all four books were marked as being ready to go same day. I figured there'd be a slight delay because they never process shipment on weekends and I didn't want to pay $13 for rush delivery (that totally negates the point of finding them at a discount).

Of course, and this is no surprise at all I'm sure, they're AQUA #2, ARIA #3, ARIA #4, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (light novel #1, paperback). I could've done the Haruhi book for in-store pick-up, and I probably should cancel it and do that, but shipping is free and the on-line price is like 15% less expensive, because on-line prices are already discounted, and right now, non-members are getting the 10% membership discount if you order online. When this comes, I'll have all the currently available ARIA manga in English and half of the currently available Haruhi light novels. I thought about ordering The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya as well, but I didn't want to get the wrong version. See, there's like ten to fifteen illustrations that come with these books, four or so are in colour, and I don't know if the paperbacks will have those, or if they'll all be black and white. I ordered the paperback of Melancholy because I like the cover design better, but if it doesn't have colour illustrations, I'm going to exchange it for the hardcover and get Sigh in hardcover as well.

Besides, I didn't want to blow all of the money I set aside for funtimes at once, since I'll probably want it when I'm in Milwaukee.

If the books I ordered don't come in, I'll just have to figure out which ones on my to-be-reread list will be best for traveling - nothing that requires TOO much work to read, because I'll be too excited to focus properly, but also nothing that I've read enough to know backwards and forwards. I'm probably going to download some free e-books or manga to read on my laptop as a last resort.


Tomorrow, I need to go to Kohl's because they're having a sale on their Levi's and I want a pair of darker wash jeans than I currently have, and I might find a pair of boots on sale that fit better than the ones I have (my brown ones are a size too big and have a blue paint splatter on one toe and the black ones I got for $20 last year are slightly too small and too pointy-toed). I'm also thinking of going down to the outlet mall to look for shirts, if Kohl's or Target don't have anything that appeal to me. I know for a fact that Eddie Bauer has a few on their website that I like, so there may be some in the outlet store.

I'm having SO MUCH FUN typing the ISBNs from my books into the Add to Catalogue page at LibraryThing.com (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] alchemia, for the reminder that it exists! I meant to go poke at it months ago!) Look and be amazed! http://www.librarything.com/catalog.php?view=keristars

By the way, yes, there are like a bazillion American Girl books there. I started out putting those in, because they're next to my bed. I've got several shelves not catalogued still, because I'm a lazy bum and didn't feel like getting to them. Also, it's getting late.


And I decided that as a reward for getting my wisdom teeth out next Friday, I would let myself buy the photography set from AmericanGirl.com, since it's on sale, $4 off. And to make it over $30, so I could use the $10 off coupon, I got Kit's Beach Pajamas, too. Yup, saved $14 on the purchase! That counts as free shipping, plus another $8 off.

Otherwise, that's the last I'll be ordering from AG.com until I get my weight back under 137 - that's what it was at the end of November when I stopped going to school and switched to a different type of thyroid medicine. I'm up to 145 again, blech. That's because I'm not exercising as much, and I'm eating too much junk. Also, I'm not letting myself order anything until I pay off my capital one bill and get my Limited charge card down to a reasonable amount. I'm really really bad with money. I'm an impulsive buyer, and I know it, and credit cards do NOT help me.

I really do want to shape up, financially. I got a new notebook from Target that's made for this kind of thing, with my Target gift card. It is made up of special folders with spaces you can write in for incoming bills, paychecks, medical bills, stuff like that, and a place to store everything for that month. I'm hoping that having an organized notebook like that, I'll be able to watch my activities better. Half the trouble I have is not knowing where I put my bills, or not realizing how much money I spend.

Last night, I did manage to get out of JoAnn's with under $35, including tax! I'm really proud of myself for that, since I was using gift money, and I only had $50 - the rest of it is going in my car for school snacks, like a coke during drawing, or a bag of pretzels during lit class. (Almost all my classes are 3 hour sessions this semester, which means a break halfway through for lunch, yay!)

And! I went to the bookstore the other day and came out with only three books. :D

Okay, see? I'm awful with money. I buy gifts all the time, too. I still have things to ship to: [livejournal.com profile] alchemia, [livejournal.com profile] ladyheartilly, [livejournal.com profile] vixen_of_light, and [livejournal.com profile] nyreak...maybe other people? Luckily, MOST of those aren't the kinds of gifts that I spent a lot of money on. Which reminds me...I also need to do all those stationery sets I've been planning, so I don't have piles of scapbook paper lying around everywhere. Eh, I'll just pack them in ziplocks, I guess, and take them to school to work on during my long breaks.


Talkative tonight, aren't I? I've been sleeping all week during the day, and awake at night. I need to shift that around badly, before school starts. I also need to go speak with Nofa Monday or Tuesday, so I can ask her to try to ignore me Wednesday, or not bring attention to me. I'm thinking that part of what made it really hard for me last semester is that she kept putting attention on me when I was late OR on time. Plus other things. And I need to pick up my French Proficiency results from Dr Shira.


Tra la. Free-form embroidery on doll-sized things is very difficult. I'm having issues getting my stripe to be steady - I'm using a satin stitch so that my stitched are at a 90 degree angle to the direction of the stripe, and I'm working with fleece, and my stripe is all jaggedy and not the same width all the way down. Bugger. I think I can fix it though. I hope. The person I'm sending this to is apparently a better sewer than me. (And that includes, basically, EVERYONE in [livejournal.com profile] ag_over_18.)


Gonna go catch up on JoshReads.com now. G'night.

Gonna go catch up on JoshReads.com now. G'night.
keri: (time!)
Oh man, Beatrice is such a cute doll. I can't BELIEVE I waited until I was 22 to purchase one - but maybe it was a good thing, because I think she's the cutest of the entire bunch. Now, if only I could actually budget properly and didn't blow my entire savings (alas) on Bea and clothes for Bea in the last two months...


I suck like whoa at resisting impulse buys, it's true. I have sold a book for $8, though, and I'm going to put up a really great dress for sale for $50. That's only a third of what we paid for it (it was for my dad's wedding party and for parties at New College I never got to go to - but I wore it to class! that was fun! I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] mekriti might remember it. It was awesome red with black block flowers allover and a black tulle crinoline that peeked out the bottom).


Now I need to find out how to get the money to pay for car repairs, eg: new tire, realignment, oil change+clean out, removal of huge dents, there's a new enormous scratch in the side of my car, too, from the garage at UNF. Also, I need to find out how to pay to get my wisdom teeth extracted. That's going to run me $400 - oh, look, a similar fee to my new glasses. UGH. I totally didn't expect the optometrist stuff to cost so much, or for my car to need the work it needs. And I'd not meant to spend so much money on doll stuff. Or, for that matter, art supplies. I did get a large student loan, but the excess for this semester hasn't been sent to me, even though I took out the loan to pay for tuition AND other school things, like, yanno, art supplies - which I can't get at the bookstore, so I can't use the bookstore voucher for.


Anyway, I love my doll. She got two new outfits from eBay this week, and the one was actually intended for the Bitty Baby line. It's the Harvest one. Well, the shirt and the boots and the headscarf are so awesome. As soon as I put them on, I knew that they'd be my doll's favorite clothes. Er, as much as a doll can have a personality, I guess. Well, she's like a story character, so there.


Shit, I just remembered that I meant to mail out packages today, but didn't because I didn't wake up until 6pm. Er, yes. Right. I'm going to try to do so tomorrow. The funny part is that I save money specifically for sending packages to people, because I love to do that, but I never think "oh, you know, I should wait on this, and use that money for gas or something" instead. I always make the packages a priority, even if I take five months to get to the post office with them. However, they're DEFINITELY going out tomorrow, because I have to send the eBay thing then.



(PS: Would anyone be interested in buying stationery from me? It'll be handmade notecards with matching envelopes, priced only slightly above the cost of supplies. This is unrelated to the earlier part of the post, because I've been wanting to do this for months now, you may recall. I just don't want to sell to strangers first, because I want to get feedback on positive/negative points, suggestions on new things, and so on. I want to learn how to make agenda books, too, but I haven't the foggiest how to go about getting things printed in bulk, ready for binding - or for that matter, how to get covers made up, or where to buy the wire for binding. Though I know I can make blank books, handbound, and stuff.

Anyway, I've got definite plans for my first design, and I just need to get a set of cardstock and notecard sized envelopes so I can begin.)
