Back To The Future

First off I'd like to apologize for the lack of blog posts. It's been just over a week since I made one and this is my first one of the month. I really don't have much of an excuse. I have plenty of ideas for posts, but I didn't want to just throw in filler, and I haven't had batteries for my camera until yesterday. I've been watching a fairly heavy amount of anime for the last week. Also, I've been trying to free up computer space and back-up all the things I have saved on it, burning data discs and what not. Anyways I'll have plenty to post about this month, and I stocked up on batteries now so expect me to get back to things. I'll probably be changing my banner soon just for fun, and I've also been looking into other blog sites/hosts with the possibility of moving my blog elsewhere. Alright enough of me though, here's a recent order that came in last week, the only thing missing here is my wife's xxxHolic bag with Yuuko on it, I'm sure she'll blog about it soon enough. Speaking of xxxHolic, I really want to get the next few volumes of the manga. I'll wait for now though, money is going to be tight with all the orders already made and the fact that I need to go to the dentist in a couple days.



Mokona Modoki plush from xxxHolic and double-sided Chii pillow from Chobits, both bought at a store here in the states online called Toycup. Lately I've been buying things from the states less and less and strictly sticking with shops overseas because of the slow speed and terrible customer service of most of the stores over here. But Toycup took 3 days (not including Labor Day and Sunday) to get these to me along with my wife's bag, so I have to mention them here. They don't carry a really huge selection compared to other stores but they're worth checking out if you live in the U.S.

The safest bet is to stick to Japanese Shops.I had some problems with local shops recently.

I wonder how soft those pillows are.The last time i saw one it didnt feel too nice

Awww I really like the pillow for some reason. Be nice to get one like that for myself ^_^

I will have to check out that store seems like they have some good stuff.

Actually this is probably one of the most comfy little pillows I've ever bought, it's satiny/silky feeling. Beats the pillow I had made for myself from cafepress by a long shot.

Mokona is indeed cute but i really prefer Chii :o

i don't know why ... :p

so i bet the pillow must be quite good ^^

Was xxxHolic good? I heard a few reviews about it, gave it shot but stopped at ep. 2. I've been meaning to continue on but I don't know how long it has been since I started.

I want that pillow. ^^

I've read up to vol. 5 of xxxHolic and I find it very much my kind of manga. Yuuko is a very knowledgable character and I like her personality. The drawing style is a bit odd with the long necks and extremely skinny people but if you can get past that the story is great (in my opinion).

Have not watched/read xxxHolic, but have heard it's pretty good. I must pick it up some time.
