…I’m going to give you a glut of goodness. (Well, it’s a glut if you’re a fan-geek oddball like me! 🙂 )
Yay for Easter and the new Doctor Who episode “Planet of the Dead”. I seriously did not want to go out or celebrate Easter in any other way, I just wanted to curl up with my computer and watch my Doctor. As with the last episode, though, it was a bittersweet pleasure. I’m still devastated that David Tennant is leaving.
Rammstein. I found this group because I’m researching the Columbine School Shooting. While I was reading the shooters’ journals and writing, I also checked into their favorite films and music. I was surprised to discover what excellent taste they had – they and I are pretty much liking the same groups and films. Does this mean they’re more normal than I imagined, or that I’m more weird? Not sure, but now I’m obsessing over Rammstein’s music.
The fact that they sing in German only adds to the allure, as I love the sound of spoken German. Must be genetic memory; I have a heck of a lot of German ancestry.
And I sold my first artist doll/figurine overseas! Yes, the “Steampunk Penguin” is now steampunking it over in Sweden.
Simplicity has just released three new awesome patterns:
How fabulous would this be for steampunk? I’ve always wanted a driving costume…in different colors, though, I think.
And I cannot tell you how happy I am to see Simplicity doing a fairly accurate Tudor era pattern. A little tweaking, this could be perfect!
With underthings to match! Yay for corsets and bumrolls!
Lastly, I spent an hour sorting my closet, and for a lark I counted my shoes.
Anyone care to hazard a guess?
Not counting my cosplay and costume shoes (such as my black vinyl lace-up over the knee boots with 5″ heels! Hehehe!) I own sixty-three pairs.
Sixty-three pairs of ordinary, everyday shoes.
Yeah, that just about says it all, doesn’t it?
