Apparently I feel chatty today

Re: the SDCC exclusive Tonner Edward variant: I think my problem here isn't OMG IT'S A TWILIGHT DOLL I MUST HAVE IT; it's that I love incorporating stuff into the Secret Life stories. And "stuff" often gets expensive, although not always--some of the best bits have been small reader gifts (The Littlest Cowboy Hat, for example), or stuff I found around the house (the dessert fork for pitching the ponies' grass), or old toys from my closet (the ponies themselves). I mean, there are dolls I want for myself that I haven't bought because I couldn't justify the cost (even crazy-fantastic bargains) by thinking of a way to incorporate them--but I see something that makes me go HOLY SHIT I HAVE TO PUT THAT IN THE STORY and it's like my brain just shuts down. I mean, I saw Super Special Exclusive Legolas with Cloak on eBay and fought for that thing to the $40 death AND STILL GOT IT FOR HALF WHAT IT USUALLY GOES FOR, SUCKAAAAAS. It's kind of my equivalent of "SQUIRREL!"

But I am trying to talk myself down off the Gratuitous Edward Variant ledge because: Alice. I have to have Alice. I can't not have Alice. I have to bring Alice's awesome to The Shelf. I can't blow this kind of money on a character I already have in a slightly different shirt and afford an Alice. So there's that. I... I'll have to see a picture of the variant Edward, I guess. *hangs head*

Oh, by the way, we have a reader question about dolls--where to find good sites for accessories for 4" figures?

Oh, and my mother has found someone who wants to buy the plates. Not the mugs yet, though.

Speaking of which, I would really like to finish the first season recaps, and I got the DVDs last weekend. Problem is, it's been a really crazy week, so the five-episode recap marathon I'd been hoping to do didn't happen (and the Recap Triathlon last year nearly killed me as it was). My point is, I'd like to start up where I left off, maybe do two or three a week until I'm caught up with the current season, and maybe be a little less thorough this time around, since recaps were generally taking seven hours each to write by the time I left off. Which may be a clue as to why I did, in fact, leave off. I just know that I have a Sagittarian tendency to start things with great enthusiasm and then not finish them, and that really eats at me. So I'd like to see this through.

(No, I will probably never go back to Lost recaps, because it would pretty much have to be your full-time job to wade through mythology now. And that's why I stopped, because I couldn't enjoy the show for trying to recap it. So I choose the show over the recaps, basically.)

(I didn't finish Empire either. But you know, I actually have the DVDs. Next time an Emily Blunt [she was Camane!] movie comes out--what's she got next, The Wolf Man?--that might be a good time to recap the last two episodes.)

Kristen Stewart is Mullet Marvelous as Joan Jett; 'Runaways' Biopic Finds Its Lita Ford: Alessandra Torresani; Michael Shannon May Join Kristen Stewart And Dakota Fanning In ‘The Runaways’; Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning: Runaway Duo. I'm mostly interested in this because I feel like "I Hate Myself for Loving You" is one of the greatest songs ever (when someone like Joan Jett wants to walk but always runs back to you, because you took her heart and you took her pride away, that is SAYING SOMETHING).
