socks and cat

treating myself

Another milestone for me. I just accepted my first ever payment by phone. For an extra $20 a month, I have an online terminal that lets me do that. I accept payments online all the time. But this by phone thing is pretty cool.

The payment, by the way, was for a VERY last minute party. Like tomorrow afternoon. And what a bonus it is! I've already booked enough parties this month to pay the rent on the dance studio, so this party (after taxes) is pure profit. So I've decided to treat myself. Remember how I was trying to decide which winter coat to buy? That custom cosplay store on eBay had that gorgeous gothic Lolita coat that laces up the back like a corset. But the boutique here in my neighborhood has that elegant gothy long black coat. Both are very expensive, so it didn't make sense to buy both. Well I finally ordered the eBay one a few days ago only to discover that it takes them 10 days to make it and shipping takes 2 weeks (because it comes from another country). So while I have old coats I could get by with, I wouldn't get my new winter coat for about 3 weeks, and it's been freezing lately! Thanks to this last minute extra booking, I can have BOTH coats! If they still have my size, I'll be buying that other coat on Sunday. I live in a city that gets way too cold for me, I deserve TWO beautiful long gothy winter coats. Yay!

spoiled kitty

I'm used to not being able to sit in my own computer chair because Meushi is taking a nap there. But now she's claiming the toilet in my bathroom as her own too! First she uses my bathtub as a she uses my toilet as a throne. Is nothing sacred!?

In case you're wondering...yes, I find another bathroom to use so she won't have to move. I can't help it, I just love her too much to move her.
