Today I was over at the mall because I was tutoring, and after my student and I split ways, I decided to go walk the mall. I did have at least one thing to buy in mind… that was some gummy candy at the candy store, so that I can make molds later this week. But along the way I saw Hot Topic. Now, the crazy thing is, I could have sworn that Hot Topic had already closed up and gone, like 5 months ago or more. I was going to go there sometime in November or December, but was surprised to see it had disappeared. And online the location at the mall is no longer listed…. So I don’t know if the store I went in to today was temporary or what…. Everything was Buy One Get One half off, mix and match. I saw a nice long dress with some skull lace, and decided to buy it. While looking through the My Little Pony display, I was really annoyed that the T-shirts were all lame and didn’t have any main characters on them (I would totally have gotten a Twilight Sparkle tee). But I did find this phone case… I decided to get it because I sort of like the wallet / phone case function…. Plus I think I had set myself on getting SOMETHING My Little Pony. (Later today I sort of had second thoughts… like, maybe I should have gotten that Jareth / David Bowie tee? – well I could go back….lol)
Anyway, check it out. $9 (originally 18.99) My Little Pony Phone Case/Wallet . The black background is actually the dress, but I don’t think you can see the skull lace.
Fluttershy is second best, behind Twilight Sparkle, IMO.
Inside, space for some cards and money
Front has protective plastic window with an opening on bottom for a button (or camera?) and then speaker holes at the top. I couldn’t decide which way the phone was meant to go in, lol. And yeah, Alan Walker from D-Grayman is my wallpaper! 😛
We woke up, opened presents and went through our stockings, and then had some delicious French toast that my mom and I had prepared the night before using challah bread. Since we only recently started moving stuff back into the kitchen, we didn’t make Christmas dinner at our house, but instead we went to a buffet at a local semi-luxury hotel. It was a pretty good meal… I ate enchiladas, shrimp cocktail, green bean casserole, and ambrosia fruit salad. And for dessert I had a little half sliver of German chocolate cake and a sliver of pumpkin pie. Thats gotta be my favorite thing about buffets – I don’t have to eat turkey / ham or whatever (I’m not a big fan of the typical holiday main dishes, for some reason). Also I can get “crumb” deserts – I take the little “left over” pieces left from people who couldn’t figure out how to take an entire piece without it falling apart. That way I can have a sampler plate with lots of types of dessert.
As to the gifts… In my stocking there was candy, of course, as well as a Starbucks gift card, a book, and angora socks (with reindeer on them, very cute, from Eddie Bauer). My brother gave me an iTunes card. My mom gave me the Panda hat/scarf and the OPI Sephora nail polish collection with mini bottles of polish. My dad gave me a silver scarf, and a chia cat grass growing kit. He also tried to get me a silicone / “gel” skin for my smartphone, but the person at the store sold him the wrong kind (even though he had my phone’s model name written down). I have an HTC MyTouch 3g, and the skin that the sales person sold my dad isn’t big enough and doesn’t have the camera hole in the correct place. So he’ll be returning that and then maybe we can go look for one that fits.
Additionally I received a bit of money too, from my Grandma, Aunt, Aunt & Uncle, and my parents. Totaling $600, I’ll probably use it to pay off my credit card… lol, how sad.
Of course Stitch wasn’t part of the haul, but he is modeling my new panda hat/scarf for you.
