Public service announcement

So my mother got a letter Saturday morning informing her that she has won $125,000 in a "Canadian lottery," and here is a check for $5000 to take care of "Canadian taxes," but she will only have to send them $4800 of it back and then blah blah blah scam scam scam. Fortunately the first thing she did was 1) not believe it and the second thing she did was 2) call upon my Google-fu. The first thing I did was Google the name on the check, and the very first page of the very first site of the very first result said this: Collapse )

ALERT ALERT ALERT

OMFG MY DEAREST WISH HAS COME TRUE



I MAY HAVE ACTUALLY SCREAMED SO LOUD THE DOGS STARTED BARKING

"SERAFINA!"

"SERAFINA!"

"Oh, do please get her, I would very much like to meet her!"

OH SHIT OH SHIT I HAVE TO WIN A LOTTERY

BUT NOT A CANADIAN LOTTERY


Also at the site for 2009: Disney Princesses, Doctor Who and Torchwood (no pictures yet?), Bette Davis, a new Will Turner, more Scarlett O'Hara, and... Miss Piggy? AND SO MUCH MORE.



(OMFG BELLATRIX! BELLATRIX! OMG I SWOON I DIE)

MOAR DOLLS: I just keep staring at the Serafina Pekkala prototype. SHE SO PRETTY. I'm still just so giddy that they're actually making her. And yes, that is a Sam Elliott Cowboy Grandpa doll listed beneath her.

(I like how the site has to specify, "This character does not wear shoes." So, you know, don't call up Tonner and bitch them out when she doesn't come with any.)

Meanwhile, I found out that 100 Edwards and Bellas will be sold at the Tonner NYCC booth in a couple of weeks. You know. Early. Before you can get them anywhere else. Of course, you'll have to bring your beatstick to ward off the other Twihards in order to reach the table, but still. I immediately started shrieking "NOOOO! NOOOOOOO!" because, while I know people who will be physically present at Comic-Con and could pick them up for me, I don't have the money yet because I haven't finished my stupid e-thing to sell (which is still assuming I'd have anything left after paying off the air conditioner, which I said I'd take care of). In fact, I have a children's picture book (just the text, obviously) that I need to find a publisher for. But, of course, did not think to do this ahead of time just in case Sparkle Motion should be present at NYCC. AUGH. Ah, well. There'll still be 1900 other dolls to cut TwiMoms for.

(Oh Lord: MTV Staffers Unbox The Magical Edward Cullen Doll. I'm not even going to look. I don't even want to know.)
