That looks like the funnest time ever.

Especially the part with the shopping cart bears.

I got to ride shotgun on a Meals on Wheels run. It was awesome.

Thanks to you, I spent two hours on ebay last night and will soon be the proud owner of many fine Korean paper products.

*shakes fist*

OH GOD THE DIARIES DID YOU SEE THE DIARIES AAAAAAAHHHHHH.

Damn those postcards are nice. The lady who did the Oz watercolors did a really nice bunch for The Little Prince. Unfortunately they've been withdrawn since they were sort of kind of unlicensed by the publishers.

I got one of the 2012 planners and it's so beautiful and everyone at my site will be jealous of the cuteness.

I was tempted by the Arabian Nights cards, but got a bunch of notebooks instead.

Waaaaait...it was the Red Riding Hood kitty one, wasn't it? :D
goddessdster From: goddessdster Date: October 19th, 2011 02:52 pm (UTC) (linkage)
Oh, crap. I didn't even see that one.
goddessdster From: goddessdster Date: October 19th, 2011 03:12 pm (UTC) (linkage)
Wait. I did see that one. The kitty sort of creeped me out with its Joan D'Arc staring off into the heavens thing.

I got this one, in blue:

Yeah, the Jetoy cats kinda roam in and out of Uncanny Valley at will.

The Ashley diary is adorable.

*eyes Lake County, IN*

Apparently I grew up in a multi-colored Pokeball surrounded by bears.

...That sounds pretty accurate.

Oh my God I WENT BY THAT DRIVE IN LIKE A DOZEN TIMES.

Blue Top yay!

Despite spending the first 18 years of my life and the non-college parts of the next 4 in that area, driving past it is mostly what I did/do too. I think I've eaten there maaaaaybe twice.

I...wasn't entirely sure that it was still functioning, except that they turned the neon on at night. It had that potentially abandoned look, not unlike the Tastee Inn here:

You're okay as long as you have a pass. You really want to avoid the Scissormen.

this is so awesome

Danke!

also what do you use for your diary? is this just a regular moleskin?
annlarimer From: annlarimer Date: October 19th, 2011 01:45 am (UTC) (linkage)
This one's just a regular moleskine with blank pages. If you paste in a lot of stuff (and by 'you' I mean 'me'), you have to judiciously remove pages to keep the binding from splitting and the book from going totally accordion. Although if the binding splits, well, that's why God made Hello Kitty duct tape.

I also like the Gallery Leather planners, which have slightly larger pages and flexi covers, combined with strong paper and a great binding, not to mention a tendency to go on deep, deep clearance when outdated. This year's are in somewhat unfortunate 80s pastels. (The calendar pages don't matter, since they're covered with stuff anyway.) Exacompta Basics are super nifty, too, with or without their leather covers.

Really, anything with a nice sewn binding and paper you like will serve you well.

I may have Opinions About Notebooks. >.>

You came to Chicago and I missed it? (You notice I didn't say "A tornado came to Chicago and I missed it?" cos we do get those.)
annlarimer From: annlarimer Date: October 19th, 2011 01:47 am (UTC) (linkage)
I did! I saw Hideous Marilyn and the Sanrio Store!

The tornado was...last year, I think? But it touched down in front of the house.

I'm a bit concerned about the part of IN that apparently has zombies AND Republicans. Scary!
nitasee From: nitasee Date: October 18th, 2011 03:09 pm (UTC) (linkage)
I thought zombies and Republicans was kinda redundant?
