Okay, we're chopping this release up into easy to post bits. Also, fair warning, but when AG updated their site, they also changed how their pictures load so yeah, I'm not editing things because it's taken this long just to do this much. Onward.
First up, Gabby!
She didn't get much. )

That leads us to Tenney and Logan.
Between them, they get as much stuff as Gabby did. Who's the GOTY again? )

Let's wander over to the Wellies, shall we? I will never understand how AG can continue to use free shipping on the Wellies but ignore it on everything else on their site aside from gift cards. Technically, I guess it's because the Wellies are available at other retailers (B&N, Kohl's, TRU, and I swear Target was mentioned?) but Gabby, Logan, and Tenney are all available at Kohl's and TRU, and Amazon's got Melody, Julie, ME, and Z so....
Anyway, I digress.

WellieWishers wish the best for youuuuuuu... )

Holymotherofgod, this release just never ends. I'm going to go with the new Truly Me Dolls and then we're gonna take a break. Mine will be to the tune of a strawberry daiquiri, but you may go with something else entirely.

New dolls, new dolls comin' through. )

Grr. I prefer to do my swimming alone or with Mums and it's why I go at the earliest the pool is open. It's also why I avoid it on holidays and most Saturdays. Sadly, a family has moved in on my Sunday pool time. This is the second week in a row they've shown up after me and today the dad replied to something one of the kids said with a "yep, every Sunday morning!" Couldn't you guys do the sunscreen at home and give me the extra half an hour of peace? (What's the point in putting it on after you get there and three seconds before you jump in the pool?) I shall not complain too much since the mom broke out the skimmer and got rid of a bunch of the bugs the storm (and the pool guy) left in the water.


It wasn't too bad, just not the alone time I craved. You'd think I'd be good on alone time considering work was just meeeeeeeeee and a good chunk of it was really just me and not a single customer, but no. I wanted that chlorinated alone time, I guess.

Anyway, I have a whole list of things I should do this weekend but what I'm going to do right now is head on up to bed and read a magazine and doze off. If I time this right, I'll be back to do the AG post (or one of them) later this evening.

...kay. AG fandom, if you cannae tell the difference betwixt the Sonali and Josefina mold, no matter the skintone, you really shouldn't get all huffy about anything anyone does. Cuz no. At this point in time, if you're being all hardcore about things and still can't tell the difference and don't have facial blindness then you don't get to be hardcore, dammit.

Seriously. :P

Anyway, this comes up because pictures of the new AG custom options have leaked. Well, a catalog mentioning it leaked. And one of the options is, duh, a light Sonali mold and some people could not tell the difference, even when they zoomed in. Which is fine for casual fans or my loves here because I don't think you lot are freakin' hardcore, will cut a bitch over anything AG. But elsewhere in the world? Mmhmm.

Sooooooooo... without further ado:
Pictures! )

I hope there's a website doll maker thing that's actually got most of the variations entered into it so I can lose a week playing around with it.

I will say that I don't see myself really doing this more than once, but should the funds allow, I would likely make at least one custom simply because SCIENCE. Er, I mean because you get more than just the doll for the price. So we'll see how it goes because uh, I have a mighty need.

And I will be the asshole in the corner laughing at everyone turning purple over the various customs other people are planning. Seriously, the wank has already begun and this thing hasn't even launched yet.

Yeah, the AG post is going to have to wait til I'm not dead, but here's a teaser. There's a new hotel playset (with a bunch of little ones to tie into it) and all I can think of is Karen Brewer forcing everyone to play Let's All Come In.

Well, that and a massive amount of Zach and Cody flashbacks from when Widget was younger. It's a strange, strange mix.

Oh, and apparently Z didn't get anything this go round that I can find. :( I know she's new and all but still.

Tomorrow is a big AG release (think their fall stuff, as well as new stuff for Z, Tenney, Gabby, and Logan) and so naturally they updated their site today. o_O If you've got an account with them, you're going to need to set a new password and make sure to triple check your address on file. Oh, and add your payment info again, but they warn you about that. Depending on how I feel, we may cover the new releases tomorrow. We may wait a few days. I do know there are supposed to be 3 new Truly Me dolls (one is pretty much Gabby with longer hair) and all three are brunettes, and there's a new hotel set up. Ooh. Ahh.

I feel like someone slugged me in the face so I'm about to go read a bit before snoozing.

Oh, and this week's PLL and the finale preview have made me sad. Spoilers for who killed Charlotte. )

In the past week I have washed pretty much every dish I think anyone in the house has used in the last freakin' year. At the moment I have maybe... six dishes still up in the air and two of those are the crock pot and its lid, which I didn't even realize was dirty until I peeked in it yesterday. o_O I don't remember the last time anyone used it! I'm guessing it was a meal I didn't partake in for whatever reason but still. So it's doing the heat and clean itself kind of thing. Hopefully it'll work.

I'm so tired of cleaning but every time I find myself with more than ten minutes of downtime, I gravitate towards finding something to clean or mess with. I clean instead of grieve. I thought when this happened with Dad it was because I was worried people would appear at the house and be horrified. Yeah, nope. It's how I process grief, or work around it or something. At least it's useful.


But I also bitch. The boy and the mop. )

Annnnnnnnd now I'm exhausted. This whole sleeping for four hours, max, thing has to stop. I'm not good with it. But I can't sleep yet because I must wait out the crock pot since we're in the cool down portion.

On the plus side, for maybe the next couple of hours parts of the house look amazing. Seriously, the kitchen is glorious and so is the front hall. I'm more proud of the kitchen because the hall is because I cheated and hid the books Mom and I got from the boy's ex when they wouldn't accept "no, really, we shouldn't, we don't have the room." Gotta find room for them on an actual shelf orrrrrrrr give them away. After reading, obviously.

Back I go to sorting old mail, I believe. Thrills and chills!

Wait! It's officially summer so that means the Summer Mini Challenge is up and running! If you write or want to write at all, I highly recommend this. I'm eying at least one of the tables and I just looked at the post like thirty seconds ago. Yup, when I'm not falling asleep where I sit, I'm signing up.
