As you may or may not remember, dear journal, Depression has been pretty much kicking my ass lately for legit Dad-related reasons. I kind of predicted this was going to happen around this time, but the intensity of it still managed to sneak up on me. Obviously, I've been getting high once a day, not because I necessarily want to, but because skipping a day would be a bad idea. For one thing, getting stoned is the only reason I have any appetite right now. Which is actually awfully annoying, but I am more or less a badass for handling it so well
without relying on The Magic of Friendship too much because zero of my friends actually live in the Emerald City yet
I really wanted to write a snarky reaction post to last weeks's TVD, but just haven't been able to give enough of a fuck to get past the first three scenes. I may still eventually do it, because it's a fun little challenge: I genuinely enjoyed it, so snarking about it is not always easy. Heh. Speaking of, I am so freaking excited for this season to start streaming on Netflix so I can binge the whole thing. It's just been so epic. Depending on how the rest of it goes, it may eventually replace season two as the best overall. And it's already replaced season five as the second best.
The one good thing to report is that tips have been better than ever. I decided to treat myself to a Pony, so getting home from work included time for a trip to Target. They had one Rockin' Hair Fluttershy left, and I snatched her up. I still want to wait and open all five (I'm not getting Twilight)
together, but she's practically perfect in every way! Such a fucking hippie. Which I mean as a compliment (mostly), because it really is perfect for her.
So that leaves Appleack, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity (who, by the way, I want in that order). I haven't seen any of them in any stores, which is a real pain. I'm willing to get them online, but would really rather spot them on the shelf and be able to take them home right away. We'll see.
RH Fluttershy was the only thing I saw at Target that I absolutely had to have. Still not sold on super fancy Sunset Shimmer (although, if she were to go on sale for less than twenty dollars . . .). I'm conflicted about the pajama party Twilight Sparkle. I really don't care for her outfit very much, but she's actually pretty cute, which is super rare for a human Twilight Sparkle doll for some reason, and her hair is on point, and she does come with Spike as a dog. Pinkie Pie is the only other doll I've seen in this line, and of course I have her, and of course she's become one of my new favorite EQG toys ever, but I do wish they'd make the other four. I mean, just imagine it: Applejack & Winona, Fluttershy & Angel, Rarity & Opalescence, and Rainbow Dash & Tank. At a slumber party. Sleep is one of the only things I love as much as I love Ponies, you guys. I may or may not have Pinkie Pie lying down on the shelf right next to my stack of pillows, and she may or may not be helping me sleep better.
I need to take more pictures of my Pinkie Pie shrine. Group shots and individual portraits. That's something to look forward to when I have more energy.
Also, I need to de-box Octavia so I can shoot her with Vinyl Scratch & Zecora (and, eventually, Photo Finish).
I'm currently almost done re-reading The Wee Free Men
for the nth time while one of my best friends reads it for the first time ever. Speaking of Tiffany Aching books, there is going to be a fifth one published this fall. Pratchett left behind a manuscript. My head is all tingly with anticipate.
The new Age of Ultron commercial
! I could only be more excited for this movie if I could teleport around the country to watch it with all of my friends. Yes, it's clearly going to be good enough that I'll most likely see it at least four times just in May. Don't even talk to me about the prospect of how Ultron fucking up the world is going to affect Agents of SHIELD
, because I really can't wait for that.
However, my enthusiasm for the MCU just barely pales in comparison to my joy for Pitch Perfect 2
On that note, I really need to stop typing and focus on eating something.
