Whoa

It’s like the universe is trying to make up for Saturday night.

Bright and early, I check my e-mail, and see that I did, in fact, win the lottery to buy the new Neo Blythe, “Dark Rabbit Hole.”  (Looking back at the lottery entry page, I see that they had 300 dolls, and I was assigned the number 480 when I signed up on the last day of the entry period, so it looks like my chances were actually better than 1 in 2, so that’s not saying too much.)

However, that made me check my bank balance and freak out, because it was so much lower than I expected.  ($50 and $60 purchases add up over time, plus the quarterly payment to the pest control place had gone through since I last looked…)

Then I check my mail, and I have not one but three packages.

All just arrived today!
All just arrived today!

As an experiment, I put the school uniform of the Cardcaptor Sakura dolls on the Pure Neemo XS body, and it fit almost perfectly!  (That, of course, was not in today’s mail, despite being in the picture.  I’ve had the CCS dolls for some time now.)  The hips on the new body were a bit too large, so the skirt had to be raised up a bit above the waist for its velcro to close, and the shirt can’t be pulled down over the skirt, but other than that, perfect.  I’ll have to try all the other outfits on the body to make sure they fit–Mei Lin’s may not want to go on, which might cause some problems…or necessitate some really crazy re-bodying, like putting an Obitsu head on a Stacey body.  (Gah!  I can’t even imagine how that would look!)

It was actually already lunchtime when I checked the mail, and I was temporarily distracted by all my pretty packages, but then I remembered “oh, yeah, I’m supposed to be making lunch right now!” and went to the kitchen to wash my hands before handling the food.

When I glanced away from the sink and looked out the window above the sink, there was a hawk sitting on the rusty old clothesline pole right outside the window.  It was just sitting there, staring at me.

I wanted to go get my camera — or at least my iPad — even though that would mean getting a picture looking through that dirty window, but I was afraid it would fly away if I moved.

While it was using its beak to tend to the feathers on one of its wings, I pulled my hands back from the sink; slowly, and yet even that made it turn its attention sharply back at me.  I don’t know if it recognized that I was a person behind glass, but it certainly saw me as a moving object, whatever it thought I was beyond that.

So I just stood still and watched it for about another thirty seconds, at which time it turned around, and swooped away, soon hidden by the maple tree.

Since hawks aren’t too common in this particular area — though they’re common enough in the larger area surrounding this smaller area, if you know what I mean — and they’re a symbol of good luck at least in Japan, if not in other places, I’m viewing today as a lucky day for me.

So I’m going to go finally buy lottery tickets.  Maybe it’s futile, but…it seems like the propitious time to try.  (And my dolly habit is really breaking the bank, so it would be quite the boon if I could win!)

    I can’t wait to see who you rebody ^^. Also, good luck with the lottery ticket >_<. I've only ever purchased the scratch tickets and I never seem to win.

      The body is for the Licca head that’s coming, actually. 😛 I was just trying the clothes on it as an experiment to see if Pure Neemo XS is the right size, which it turns out to be. 😀 But since Mei Lin’s clothes don’t fit on that body (the cloth has absolutely no give on that outfit, unlike the others, so it won’t go over the hips), when I get around to ordering bodies and heads (and wigs) to make the Cardcaptor Sakura dolls properly, I may give Yeolume a Pure Neemo XS, and use her body for Mei Lin, despite its lack of flexibility, since Mei Lin’s clothes *do* fit on Yeolume’s body. But first I’ll see how Obitsu 21 cm (which I need to re-body Len) and the Pure Neemo XS boy body (uh, there is a boy version, right?) work with Mei Lin’s clothes. Though none of that is going to happen for a while yet. Unless things turn out well tomorrow… 😉

      Thanks. I actually bought 4 tickets (grand total of $5 spent), one for a lottery that was last night (haven’t had the guts to look yet!) and three for one tonight. I figure I’ll check all of them tomorrow, when my paper is already finished, so no matter what the results are, it won’t affect my paper — and thus my GPA! — any.
