Fruits Basket Fortunes!!!

The problem with having a good memory is that when you're really poor, and you see something you want, and you say, "Someday, when I have money, I'll buy that," then you remember all those things you said you'd buy when you have money, and then you have a hard time not buying those things when you finally do. And we were poor for so long that there were/are a lot of things. Hence our spending almost $100 ordering Disney movies last night. We didn't even get to order The Fox and the Hound and Peter Pan like we wanted! But still, five movies for less than $100 is pretty good, especially since tax and shipping were included.

And! we're getting Buzz Lightyear of Star Command! Which, some of you may recall, is surprisingly hilarious.

Speaking of spending our money like water (okay, so we're not being that bad; we're hoping the Disney order will be the last one for a while... but then, we did forget to order Darby O'Gill and the Little People...), despite the US postal service website telling us they hadn't even received our package from Akadot Retail every time we tried to track it, it arrived today! And you know what that means!

And this is my official plug for the Fruits Basket fanbook: Buy it! It's neat! A must-have for all Fruits Basket fans! (In stores September 2007!!)

I also have to put in a good word for Akadot Retail, because the invoice that came in the package had a hand-written message thanking us for shopping with them, and there was a smiley face!! It's so cute!!!

We also got the Elemental Gelade soundtrack, which has Cisqua on the cover. That's a bit confusing, as I'd imagine Ren and Cou would be the most popular characters. Regardless, we're disappointed to not have a pretty boy on the cover. Oh well.

Today I'm thankful for getting another shiny package, Juusanshi fortune-telling, finishing volume 2 of the CMX series (earlier than expected!), having a good soundtrack to listen to with Elemental Gelade (haven't listened to it yet, though), and friendly store representatives.
