Birthday Bears
Red Liquorice from brother boy and Paddington from the 'rents. May family knows me.


It was my birthday on Monday - thanks to those who gave birthday wishes. To be very honest, it was a very hard day, speaking in terms of my mental health. I was utterly miserable, and spent most of it crying. The parents and the brother boy, bless them, tried really hard but it was just one of those days. Ironically by the end of the day I was feeling better, but then it was time for me to go to sleep because the being miserable had exhausted me. Typical, really.

The week has been pretty quiet - last week I had to go and get a filling replaced. Today was Film and Comic Con Glasgow and that was fun. Bumped into a couple of my friends who ended up in the queue right behind me, so went round the whole con with them. We all agreed it felt smaller somehow. I know there was another convention on, but usually you get a lot of passers by coming in thanks to the Garrison - a group of professional cosplayers. Largely Star Wars related. Good people, all, I know a lot of them but it's always one of those things that I see them out of cosplay and my mind blanks. Actually, I don't think the Garrison was spread out as far as they usually do so that could help to explain some things... Eh.

I did cosplay - Wednesday Addams. Broadway version. (Well, mostly as an excuse for my short hair. I got it cut for the hot weather and it can't do braids right now, so I say it's the Broadway incarnation. Though that did lead to the general agreement of getting a crossbow for future uses of the cosplay.) First time ever, I ran into other Addams Family cosplayers - they were Gomez and Morticia. Was cool. Also got given a lovely gift from my friends.

Ohana Means Family


The porcelain of it is really pale though - that's the best of the pictures, the rest look really washed out or fuzzy. It is utterly adorable though, and I have no idea what to get them for their birthday in return. I've got time though, which is good.

Erm... not much else I can think of? Probably going to check out the American Death Note when it hits Netflix on the 25th. I'm genuinely curious. I also need to re-get the live action movies. I did have the DVDs but they stopped working so I got rid. Need to replace them.

Hope everyone's doing well!

The Grimm Squeaker


Today has been a bit of a day. I am currently feeling a lot of pain in my jaw/mouth area because I had to go and get a filling replaced this morning in an emergency appointment. That was... not a lot of fun, I'll be honest. I had to take some of my meds to make sure I didn't go into a panic attack in the middle of it all. I am very much not good with needles and since they needed to numb my mouth... well, you get the picture. Long story short, it's been a day. I'm really glad I've got the Galavant soundtrack, because that kept me sane. Attend the tale indeed.

Brother Boy decided to remind me that it's 10 days to my birthday and I am just very "..." about it all. It's like I'm not really looking forward to it? It just seems to be in the middle of appointments for most of my family and it's just a bit of a hassle. I have asked for something... pretty special off the parents and I am kind of kicking myself for doing it, because it was pricey and I should know better. Brother Boy told me he found a Charlie Bear he knew I was looking for at about £20 less than it should be. He's good at finding deals when he wants.

The immediate following Saturday is Glasgow Film and Comic Con (formerly Collectormania Glasgow) and I'm pulling out the Susan Sto Helit cosplay for it. The Grimm Squeaker shall be joining me on this one. I still need to book tickets for MCM but I really cannot be arsed right now. It's a lot to do with how severely my mood has dipped this year, so it makes the whole thing a bit up in the air. Will need to do it soon, on the door prices are ridiculous.

Apparently Bat Out of Hell: the Musical is getting a cast recording album. They took over the instagram for London Theatre and the first couple of stories were in the recording studios. I... actually really want that? I don't know when it'll be due out - I'm figuring in time for the show hitting Toronto - but it is something I want. For my issues with the show - plot, what plot - the vocals were not among them.

Erm... Can't really think what else to say. I'm tired, though. Probably go watch something till I can go to bed and be sure of sleeping more than a couple of hours.

Willy Wonka (Things I Want)
I don't think I've ever had such a big want from just seeing a promotional picture of a bear before...


So, this is Toy Fair 2016 week, or at least it was this weekend, and there was a lot of stuff released. I'm interested in the Disney Descendants Villain Kids Signature Dolls, some Marvel Legends, Ghostbusters, some of the Star Wars Black Series Line, and - of course - the retro style clothed Bill & Ted action figures by NECA. Out of all of this? I'm most likely only to find the Disney things because the distribution on that actually hits the UK. But enough about that.

It's been kind of hit and miss lately, in terms of mood and what not. While I am actually getting some sleep, it's been happened at weird times. I might sleep all night one night, and then the next couple of nights get maybe two or three hours at most. I'm still feeling quite down, but with it I've noticed the development of some interesting tactile issues. Or, rather, I'm just finding some feelings too uncomfortable for me. Like a brush on my head - I'm trying to find a soft brush to fix that one - and sometimes even the feel of the shower on my head feels... wrong. I'm going to mention to my GP, and see what that's all about.

Galavant finished. It was an epic ending, and I'm really hoping they get one more surprise renewal. Considering the amount of UK famous people they had in the second series, I'm surprised it's yet to air here in the UK - it really would do well over here. I saw the Deadpool movie with the Dad and the Brother and we all enjoyed it. Some jokes are a little bit eh, but context does help a lot, and it's... weirdly refreshing to see that someone who can be labelled as a victim also makes really shitty jokes as well. I know that sounds odd the way I've phrased it, but I honestly can't think of a better way to explain it all.

I've read 7 out of 50 books for this year so far. Most of these have been comics, I'm not going to lie, but having the Kindle has also been pretty helpful for getting my reading done. I have pre-ordered Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because there is no way I'm ever getting tickets for that show... those shows? I don't quite understand the set up all that well. I'm hoping the book will help, even if it is just the libretto of the show.

Really into Charlie Bears when it comes to collecting habits at the moment. It ties into the whole how I'm feeling things, they're nice and soft and that's just... nice. Though I went to look at the Steiff bears and, well, see that picture up there? Yeah, he's out of my price range, but I will find a way to save up and own him. Come with me, and you'll be, in a world of pure imagination...

Hope everyone is doing well!
