oh crap... the frame of my new glasses have just broke last night. it's barely been a year since i had them made. my last pair lasted me for like 8 years & the only reason i change it is because the lenses had gone all cloudy & scratchy... but this one broke after just a few months. bad timing too, i am about to have my internet cables changed tomorrow, & that's going to cost me a bit.
sigh... y do these things happen when u don't have the budget.
oh well, i am working on a job. but even with that, it's going to take me at least a couple of week until i can get the funds to have a new pair made. & the glasses can hold out for a while, with super glue. luckily i had some left from fixing my doll's magnets. but i have always been sloppy with super glue, already have some stuck on my thumb. wonder how many days will it take for it to come off.
one thing for sure... I AM NEVER GOING TO THAT DAMN GLASSES SHOP EVER AGAIN!!!!!
aaannyywayyy... i just discovered that someone had generously given me 3 months subscriptions.
thank you so so much. with this extended time i can take the chance to gather more points needed to extend my core subscriptions.
i also ordered a bunch of 0.05 uni pin fine from hong kong... y so faraway? well, it is available in my country, but recently the price had double what it was last year. so i figure, if i could get it for 1/2 price + free shipping, i might as well just buy the from overseas. only downside is i have to wait a month for it to arrive...
other than that, this year i have also decided to collect natsume book of friends. i had been a fan for years, but i still haven't got the printed copies. i have the dvd collection, but i also love the manga. with the current exchange rate, it's going to be a bit slow, but hopefully i can get all 21 (current) volumes of the manga this year.
by the way, i think most of you know about or experienced the strange cold weather that's been sweeping across the globe for the past few days. well, things have been quite chilly here in my country. 23°
C (about 73°
F) may not be very cold for people of some countries, but it's like freezing for us in the tropics. thanks to this chill, my cats are having the flu, & so am i. my nose is runny as hell, & my throat hurts. & every day i wake up with a headache. i can't even take baths as often as i like, & the result i am quite smelly at the moment... ha ha.
times like this i am thankful that i work from home.
lastly, sorry for the long silence again. still going to burn out mode from time to time. i am right now cleaning up some drawings, so expect some new stuff from me soon...
