Consumerism  
On a whim I went to Wal-Mart. Continuing that whim I browsed the electronics section and stumbled upon DVDs. St. Trinian's, The Hurt Locker, Whip It and This Is It (it's for The Mother, don't judge). The death stroke of that whim was BUYING ALL FOUR that totaled eighty-three dorrars and change. Holy crap. Who's the bitch going to Wal-Mart for a full refund? That bitch would be me. Every once in a while it's good to remind myself that Jelly's is FANTABULOUS and I should NEVER go shopping for things I love at some mainstream conglomerate business.

Holy crap!

That's why I wait for sales. I've gotten cds and dvds for $5-10, season boxsets for $20-30 and series boxsets for $100.

Of course, I do have the collector's edition things that cost WAY too much *coughDragonAgecough* :D

*sigh*

It's great finding a deal. Those super-special-awesome-extra-collectors-deluxe editions always get me too. But I needed that slap in the face to remind me how good I've got it working at the store.

Woah. Yeah thats why Jelly's rocks... if you can wait for it to come in... WAAAAAAAT? I'm impatient, this you already know. Ahhhhhhh at least you have come to your senses and is going to get a refund.
Sunny: Runaways Molsunny_serenity on January 28th, 2010 08:25 am (UTC)
Indeed. I can wait. That was a GLORIOUS refund. So awesome. I was able to buy comics that were like 30% off. I love my store.

Okay, that's just wrong. Severely wrong. Is there no justice?!?!? Bootleg is your friend.

I want to see The Hurt Locker and Whip It!

I have a copy of This Is It so no judging from me, lol.
Sunny: Juno krakensunny_serenity on February 1st, 2010 05:58 am (UTC)
I WANT THEM SO BAAAAAAAAAAAAD! ...but I'll wait. Those'll most def come into the store sooner or later.

I may not have understood the FASCINATION with MJ, but he could put on a show.

holy cow. That's a couple different kinds of evil right there. 83 DOLLARS?! *thud*

In somewhat unrelated news, I has a question: why is it that Mal/Zoe picked now to eat my brain? (Admittedly, it's not a new thought- but I came home, watched Serenity, and then went on a fic binge of epic proportions.)

IKR?! Lame-o.

OMG! REC ME BABY!!! I've just moved back to SERENITY!OBSESSION meself... *whispers* in the comics previews I read an article that there's gonna be POST!BDM!COMIC!!! Can't. Wait.
help, i'm alive ;;odakota_rose on February 1st, 2010 06:52 am (UTC)
*sporks Wal-Mart*

Dude, I think you've read them all. I've just been reading what's at mal_zoe (WHICH HASN'T HAD A NEW POST IN TWO FRAKKING YEARS, OMG.) And I keep seeing your name in the comments for them, so yes, assuming it was you and not a pod!person posing as you. *pouts* *wants moar fic*
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! \o/ Life. Is. Good.

PS. Why do I not have Firefly icons? Bad Lauren. Bad. *thumps self*
Sunny: FF River mehsunny_serenity on February 1st, 2010 08:22 pm (UTC)
LOL! WOW! That's too frakking long. For shame fandom, FOR. SHAME. I'd write for them if I had any confidence that I could write Joss!Verse. OMG! It's intimidating. You have to be very good to the point of great IMO and I'm nowhere near as good as them folk there.

River is disappointed in your Firefly fu.
help, i'm alive ;;: {firefly} mal/zoe - bdhodakota_rose on February 2nd, 2010 01:30 am (UTC)
Yes! This is what I'm saying. And I'm just plain afraid of writing Firefly fic. It's just not gonna happen, I freely admit that I'm not THAT kind of genius.

Yeah, River's disappointed? I'm disappointed. Pfft.

*runs to fix*
Okay, done. We're shiny now.

Oh! Have you read this one? I'm kinda in love with it.
Sunny: FF Mal Zoe dancesunny_serenity on February 2nd, 2010 03:11 am (UTC)
Completely understand. But I really really really really really really want MOAR fallout from the BDM! *wishes for FF fic talent*

A little late, but: My pithy FF icon contribution

Oh, hey! I have read that one... I didn't leave feedback??? Bad fangirl, bad. *slaps self*

No kidding. I mean... it was epic. And yet there is an epic lack of post BDM fic. At least, in my experience, and having come to the fandom party late, it's entirely possible that I missed something. *grumps*

\o/ duuuude. WIN!

*pokes* Okay, in that case, the search continues. :P
Sunny: FF River wanderingsunny_serenity on February 2nd, 2010 04:04 am (UTC)
I don't know why that is... Way to kill a dream Fox! *fists of fury* I so wanna see the fallout and post-traumatic sexy times stress. Also, I kinda wish they'd gotten to the second season cos then Inara would've died not my Wash. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH!!! *sobs*
help, i'm alive ;;: {firefly/serenity} can't take the skyodakota_rose on February 2nd, 2010 04:11 am (UTC)
HAI. *points to icon*

I hate that Wash got killed. I cannot watch that scene without getting all teary eyed and wibbly. And then I get grumpy and want to stab people with sporks. It's like the five stages of grief or something.
*sads* But- I liked Inara too, I don't want her dying. (Multishipper, me? *innocent face* I don't know what you're talking about. :P)
Sunny: FF River squeesunny_serenity on February 2nd, 2010 04:47 am (UTC)
OMG!HAI! *GLOMPS*

I just skip that part all together. It is gut wrenching for me. GUT. WRENCHING. I get physically ill and depressed for DAYS! I can't stand it.

Hmm, ship? I never really shipped on this show cos I figured Joss'd do it all anyway but you know... In retrospect I can see where I could/should have shipped. I was always anti-Mal/Inara... *ducks tomatoes* ...cos she was such a hypocrite, IMO, when it came to Mal. But I TOTALLY loved her dynamics with Kaylee, River, Jayne, Simon, Wash and Zoe. There it was always a older sister/cool auntie/total crush worthy stuff. She just wasn't my fave character but I understood why she had to be there and wanted to see a little bit more of her story to connect/empathise with her the way I did with the rest of the characters cos it's FRICKEN MORENA!! *fangirls her* *sigh* Stupid Fox. *lobs grenade* *SPLOSIONS* *CARNAGE* *DEATH* *RAGE*

*iz glomped*
hee ^.^

Mhmm. I'd looked away for a bit because I was chatting to someone or something, and when I looked back, it was that scene. D: Not cool, I tell you. *sniff*

I hear ya. I mean, I've got a couple though, because Wash & Zoe were all kinds of adorable.
I'm not throwing tomatoes about the anti Mal/Inara thing, bb. Though you may want to refrain from mentioning that to Meredith :P Idk, I have mixed feelings about those two crazy kids. They're so dysfunctional, and yet I kinda like it. More of her story would've been totally awesome. More Firefly period.
*stabbity* Fox can be made of the stupid.

On a slightly happier note, do you watch Castle?
