Decided to just answer every single question of the book meme I posted an entry back. I'll leave that up so that the questions are there for people if they want it. I've put the majority of questions under a cut because this is LONG, people. There's 50 questions. So, get a cup of tea and let's get started!

1. What is your favourite book and/or book series of all time? This is actually a really hard question to answer because so many come to mind at once. Uh. I guess if I had to pick just one, I'd go with Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. No matter how many times I read that, I always find something new to laugh at, something new to amaze me, and just always have the same level of enjoyment in reading the story.

An Update.

It's Your Turn, Now


This update came a lot faster than I thought it would. Not that much has changed since I last updated, I'm just trying to get myself doing it more so I don't leave this place all dusty again. The only big change since a couple of days ago is that I've managed to get hold of everything I'm getting people for Easter, so that's that by. Otherwise I need to save money because I have, in succession per months - a birthday, a birthday, a first communion, father's day, a birthday, and a 40th wedding anniversary. Yeah, right up till July is going to be quite expensive for me - I'm not even sure if I'll be able to afford a ticket to Glasgow Comic Con, but maybe I'll get lucky.

I should really set up some sales posts. I've got some Digimon Adventure Megahouse figures, and a Figuarts Card Captor Sakura that could be interesting as sales. I waver on the latter though, since her box is designed to look like the Book of Clow. That being said, I have the Figma version of the figure and I much prefer it as a display piece. There's also some Funko POPs I could sell. I have options, is what I'm musing about here.

Anne of Green Gables is getting a Netflix adaptation which starts airing on May 12. It's called Anne and I'm not entirely sure if it will be on Netflix UK. I hope so though. I think The Worst Witch should be on Netflix by that time, and it would be fun to be able to watch both. Not that I have Netflix right now, but I think by the time July is done, I should be able to get it. Well, I hope so anyway.

Seeing that two books of my childhood are having new reboots this year has made me wonder why there aren't dolls or other such merchandise for them. I vaguely remember Anne being available in the When I Read, I Dream series Mattel put out, but I don't actually remember seeing said series here in the UK. As for Mildred Hubble, well, there was never anything for her. So I made my own this year:

Custom: Mildred Hubble


To make her more true to book, I need to make the shirt grey and get her some boots - proper, stompy, can kick your arse boots. Doc Martins were the ones used in the 1998 Granada production so if I could find ones like that for a 21cn Obitsu body, that would be great. I'm quite pleased with her pinafore to be honest. Came out nicer than I thought.

Maybe I could try making my own Anne? Be worth a short. What doll head would make a good base...?

Name a character in any of my fandoms and I'll tell you 3-4 things about them from my personal fanon-take on said character. (Per usual, "from any of my fandoms" can be "any fictional character you think I'm familiar with" though it's possible I won't have an ANSWER).

I ... kinda of want to make a Worst Witch vid to "Gotta Get Back to Hogwarts". Admitedly, am tempted to use Days of Summer as well ... which is cheesy as hell, but it would fit for the idea in my head.

(If you're not sure what I mean, watch this vid. If you don't cry or get misty eyed WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?)

...But yeah. That's the idea. Yay, nay? What 'chu talkin' 'bout?

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it! Let's see who has what!

Doing it in alphabetical order. And yes,there is a lot of dvds on this list. Why? Well, I get given some as presents, some are randomly picked up at the supermarket when doing shopping, and some are just found cheaply. Before you know it, you've got a sizeable collection. I tend to have a dvd clean out every so often.

Clearly I am very bored

This was always one of my favourite book series growing up, and I loved the CITV live action adaptations. I managed to find the DVDS of it (including Weirdsister, which is counted as series 4 of Worst Witch, don't cha know?) through the ABC Australia shop. Well, it was either through there or through ebay. I'm really happy with the dvds as well, it says they're region four, but they're actually region free, so, ya know, winnage there.

So what's the point of this entry? Well, mostly happy childhood musing, and wondering why rewatching episodes of this really makes me want to fic write (I still need to finish that brb_g verse Who / Trek crossover, and I do have an essay due for economics next week) . But also a general: Hey, any shows you watched as a kid you refound recently enough and have enjoyed watching? 

... Have a ridiculously fun fan vid:
