Your Input on a Very Strange Topic

This is probably the genuinely weirdest thing I've ever had to ask in this LJ, but if you could help me out, I'd appreciate it very much.

Do you eat fish, especially shellfish? I don't. Please answer this!Collapse )

Your input is much appreciated. Sorry, incidentally, if I'm not posting much lately--the semester's starting and my best friend here just broke up a six year relationship, so I'm being a support system right now. :)

Your Opinion: Fanfic-Related Matters

Terrible evening/night last night, just a nightmare of pain--thank goodness for YouTube and stacks of new DVDs! :) Now I'm settled in at the computer and in the mood to get opinions on random things that pop into my head.

Here's a question for those of you on the FL who write/read fanfiction. I suppose it's mildly adult in nature.

Yes, I'm up at 4 am, and I'm wondering weird thingsCollapse )

Random Gifty: Little Golden Book Icons

Last year a friend (relative? Someone. I'll think of it sooner or later) got me a very lovely calendar as a present, with art of the Little Golden Books series. This was very nostalgic for me--I read them as a child, of course, and I'd bet a fair amount of you did too, at least the Poky Little Puppy or some such. When the year ended and it was time to buy a new calendar, I wanted to keep the images, so I thought I'd make some very plain icons for general use. Want them? Have at them, to do whatever you like. :)

19 Golden Book icons under the cut for your nostalgia/regression-to-childhood pleasureCollapse )

So any idea where should I crosspost this, you guys?

Hummus Recipe

Since I'm cleaning the hobby room today (and it's a HUGE, HUGE chore, filled with sawdust and small pieces of yarn and conundrums on locating storage space and boredom), I'll be posting incessantly. Ignore me if you like. :P

I just friended someone (hi itsmesowhat :)) who mentioned not liking a recipe she tried for hummus. So in the spirit of procrastination here's mine:

My Mod Molly came! Along with another box, but I can only be excited about one thing at a time. XD

Cut for many, many, MANY pictures.Collapse )

Tokyo Fantasy Toy Store

We often speak negatively of the "sense of entitlement" that collectors have, but the fact is that it's not necessarily such a terrible thing. Finding stores that cater to collectors of Japanese toys/models/figures/dolls/collectibles/whatever is not the difficult task it once was. The large number of suppliers in the market leads to near-parity in the prices of some of the more popular items. So it makes sense that collectors shop around for courtesy and personal attention.

In areas where customers may spend more than $100 for shipping for a single order, the additional value from each dollar saved may be negligible, so finding a good source of such items is not just a matter of finding the lowest prices. The satisfaction from exceptional packaging, service, and/or buying incentives may reach beyond things measured in nominal terms.

This is the case with Tokyo Fantasy, a place I gladly frequent even when I can save money by going elsewhere, and I spend so much time saying how great they are I thought I'd write a recommendation of them here. (And no, I'm not getting anything for this from them--unless of course they read this and want to send me a petite Blythe or two! ;)

More information under the cutCollapse )

Quick FL Pruning

I took a couple of people off the FL who never update, never comment, or whose identity I just can't place. Feel free to remind me if I shouldn't have taken you off or you want back on--it was nothing personal. If anything, I want more LJ friends, especially now that I'm actually writing here, but I want to make sure we actually interact, you know? :)

Does anyone on this list read/follow Naruto? (I don't think so, but I thought I'd ask anyway.)

Question if you do.Collapse )
