So much for updating twice a week... :p
Anyway I want to blog
about these lovely phone covers from Okasaneko.
She sent them as a gift
and I have to say I absolutely love them. I had thought I would like the
black one better from her pictures, but I've ended up falling hard for
the pink one.
Look at it! It's so cute and pink! I've loved pink as a young girl (what
young girl doesn't like pink? All the 3-4 year old girls at the kindergarten
I volunteer at seem obsessed with the colour) and tried to switch to
liking the 'cooler' black as a teen--to the point where I got some
rather ill advised thick black framed glasses that I thought would make
me look cool but ended up making me look like a grandmother instead...
Now I'm back to admitting that I really do love pink, especially pastel
That's not to say I don't like the black cover, I think it's pretty awesome as
well. It's great having two phone covers I can switch back and forth
with. Thanks very much again Pinky!
I've also picked up something very useful last week:
It's that green grass-like matting that you find on produce shelves in
the supermarket. I was able to pick up several rolls that were being
thrown away. They're a little dirty, and in one of the mats the dirt is
so fine that I haven't been able to remove it completely. These are
really great for my display shelves. Since I don't like just displaying
items by themselves, I'm working on a number of dioramas on my
bookshelves to display my stuff.
The green makes excellent grass, a lot
better than the green felt I've been using. You can see a bit of it at the top of the pic.
I don't have very good pictures of my shelves, I need to set up a better
light source. The grass is only the beginning, I'm planning to add
flowers, a blue 'sky' backdrop, fences and maybe a couple of bushes or
I took some other pictures for this post but they didn't come out very
well, so I'm going to redo them over the weekend. I will probably not
have time till then.
I'm currently playing Fallout 3, and it's really fun. I actually
started playing last year and never really went past Megaton, which is
like, one of the first areas you get to. I restarted again recently with
a brand new character and I've been hooked. The world in all its ruin
is an awesome place to explore, it's full of fifties inspired
surroundings and the old fashioned music somehow really suits the
post-apocalyptic feel of the game. Love it. Too much, because my right
hand hurts now.
The picture is a Rad-Away ad because I can't find my screenshots. :/
I also want to say that I just got a call from the local primary school
for a relief teaching job on Thursday. YAY! Finally! I've been
volunteering in schools for quite a long time, hoping to get noticed and
get a call to come in. I'm a bit nervous about this assignment, and the
nervousness will continue to grow as it gets nearer to the day. I got
an assignment to do four hours in a kindergarten last week and I
couldn't sleep the night before. :/ And I've been volunteering at that
kindy every week for the last 1.5 years! I know all the kids and the
routines! I don't know anything about the primary school's routines
because I've never volunteered there. >_<
I hope I do well. Can I have some prayers and good wishes? :D I hope
that once I start really working for the schools I'll get more calls,
especially next term (there's only two weeks left into this term). I'm
going to go bother the other schools sometime this week to see if they
have anything lined up for next term which I can hopefully do.
