やった! I did it! I passed the D.A.T.A. test!

So, thanks first of all goes to my boyfriend for helping me study! Secondly thanks カードボアドーくん for the well wishing (haha).

The test wasn’t so bad, though I wish I had a better environment to take the test in.... it was way busy and noisy and some people wouldn’t leave me alone while taking the test! Each question is timed!! Distractions are a huge hinderance.

Oh and meet Geordi La Forge .... Maybe I’ll introduce him sometime.

Double.Agent.Technical.Assessment Test! がんばるよ!!

So tomorrow I will be taking my test to be a Double Agent. It is called the D.A.T.A. test. It was recently re-vamped and I am uBer excited about taking it.

For those of you that are not familiar with Geek Squad let me explain who and what a Double Agent is .
Double Agent - One of the elite of the Geek Squad that goes out to clients home/business in the spiffy white, black, and orange VW Bugs to defeat the evils of Viruses and Spyware, Setup Wireless Networks, Pimpin-Out Computers, and Training for gadgets!

So I have been studying some today, needed a break from reading the techno-mumbo-jumbo, and decided to write a little blurb for my site. Im hoping someone noticed that I had not posted in a while and would be excited at reading a new post. ^_^

I do have other things to post about but I am trying to get my photos for the post in order.... Blarg too many pictures!

Wish me luck カードボアドーくん!

Johnny Depp + BJD

So I found out that Souldoll offers a doll by the name of “Killian” that is dressed amazingly like Johnny Depp. When I was first looking at this doll I thought, oh the pirate look is just popular because of the Pirates of the Carribean movies... but if you look further Killian is also dressed amazingly like Sweeney Todd and the writer from “Secret Window”. I had to chuckle for a minute. I do admire the Pirate themed one.. the face-up is great!(mustache and goatee)
Souldoll-Killian - 1
There is also one that looks quite similar to Vampire Hunter D. It is not as replicating as Killian is, but its gorgeous as well.

The closest I got to a Dollfie a.k.a. Ball Jointed Doll

Miyu and her Miyu Doll

In high school I was a big fan of the series Vampire Princess Miyu and thanks to my amazing parents I had just about everything Miyu related that a young girl in America could feasibly have. The one item above is a Tsukuda doll of Miyu. I also had Rava. They were the closest I had gotten to a true Ball Jointed Doll. Actually at the time I don’t think I knew they existed.... But I would find them later, and I have dreamed of getting one ever since (at least 4 years).

So I was doing that dumb thing where you ‘dream’ shop online.... and I really wish I hadn’t!

Now... if you continue reading on and you have no Idea what a Ball Jointed Doll is.. its time to bring something pretty into your life ^_^. BJD_wtf is a good source if you don’t know what they are. Also I have used hyperlinks for words that someone reading might not recognize, so click the links to get what the words mean. So read that and if you think they are creepy or just don’t like them, then only read below to revel in my torture or don’t read...

I have now found a Luts Delf I want more than El! I love Shine!

His face is perfect for doing Mana cosplays! Well as close as BJD’s get. I had wanted El for the longest time, and I still do, but I think he would be good for Gackt maybe... but these dolls are not cheap... so if I ever get one it will have to be one at a time. I really don’t see me wanting more than 2, but thats what they all say....

So anyway I decided to build my dream order from Luts. There were a few items I wanted that were not in stock... but I think my order with all the thins I wanted would have been ~$1,500.00. I was completely flaberga.sted when I saw they had a miniature Juene Fille and Juene Fille Blanche.

This post will be a work in progress... I want to list all the pretties I want so I can remember them for later. Also... There were fewer items in my Luts Shopping cart for the dream order above.
