||I've finally decided to stop deleting all of my old messages, so I'll just put them up here *^_^* ... 30 July, 2000||
21 August, 2006. It's been a long year, for those of you in the Know Mall, but it's had some very good points. Lots of new experiences and good friends are always a plus for things. I'm leaving for overseas in a few, so I won't have access for several days. I'll try to catch up with things as soon as possible. Thanks for the support!!
31 July, 2006. Yes, it's been almost 1 year since I have done any updates. As some of you know, I had been dating a police officer, and we were going to get married. However, the last time I updated this page was also the last time I got to talk to him alive. A lot has happened since then, but I'm getting back into the swing of things and will hopefully keep up with this more. Thanks!
Please sign my guestbook!!
20 August, 2005. As you can see, I have once again changed my front page. What do you all think? Lately, I've been very busy with work, studying, also working on various projects coming up. If you all have any comments, please shoot them my way. I'll be putting up more things in the near future. I have regular access to a scanner now, but it's about 12 miles away... I'll be trying to do more updates. Please sign my guestbook!!
8 April, 2005. Hi Everyone, I'm finally moved into my new place from when that guy broke into my old one--long story. I've been busy with work and working on my beaded and ganutell items too. I'll try to update some more in the very near future, so I'll keep you posted. Thank you everyone who has written to me as well. Please sign my guestbook!!
19 February, 2005 2 Days left for my Gokinjo Mongatari, Marmalade Boy, and NANA auctions. This is for cards, UFO catcher dolls, and bookmarks!!
3 February, 2005 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOOPY!!! Today, my kitty is 5, hooray!!! Yes, he's a very big kitty, 27lbs. My head is a bit better, but the allergies are still really bad, and I only hear music for some motors and not all of them anymore, so that's good!! I'm still answering emails, so please be patient. Thank you for writing!! Please sign my guestbook!!
8 January, 2005 I'm finally writing something here. I've been having some brain issues and extremely bad food allergies with them, so I haven't been doing much updating. For all of you who emailed me, I'll try to answer all of them as soon as possible. Thank you for writing!!...and I did finally update the guestbook. Please sign it!!
20 May, 2004 France was great!! My neice and nephew are so cute!! Quick update--have several Ai Yazawa auctions--cards, postcards, mascots, dolls, etc. Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne stationary set coming up, Marmalade Boy cards, and prisms galore are on their way!! I updated more NANA phonecards as well as Parakiss! *^_^*
21 April, 2004 Not much of an update today. I reached my 1.5million hit goal before the 4th anniversary of the counter date, so thank you everyone!!! I'm leaving for France soon to visit my sister, so no updates for a while. See you all soon! *^_^*
13 April, 2004. I've finally moved into my new flat. It's so cute!! Boopy really likes it too, he keeps running around all over the place. I still haven't gotten all of my mail yet, though :-( I put a different picture up too. It's my horrible passport pic, but I like that one more than the other one even if I do have poodle hair in it. Candy Candy stuff going up within the month!!*^_^*
15 March, 2004.
can see, I have decided to change the layout of my front page just a
tad. What do you think? I got the beautiful background image from
Misato's Ai Yazawa's
World; isn't it beautiful? Please tell me what you
think of the new layout. Do you like it or hate it? If you hate it, I
still have the old layout available.
YAY!!!!!! John Stevens made it through to the top 12 for American
Idol!!! Clay was my pick for last season, and John Stevens has
been my pick for this one. Good luck to John (as if he'll ever
even see this page, but you never know). For all of you shoujo
fans who also watch American Idol, please go vote for John Stevens
whenever you get the chance. He's the tall red headed guy with
the Sinatra/Mel Torme voice. Please
help me try to reach 1.5million hits by 20 April!! I want to see
if I can do it. Please tell everyone you know to have a look
another bout of insomnia for me. It's been about a week now, and
it's terrible. You'd think with electricity there'd be more jobs
for night people like myself, but I don't believe that'll ever happen
:( so I still have to get up and be at work at 9am @_@
20 February, 2004-- NANA Mascot auction, Gokinjo Monogatari vending auction, Marmalade Boy vending auctions (2, 3, and 4), Gokinjo Monogatari PP pack auction. Please ask me with any questions!! *^_^*Magic Knights Rayearth--cels are up. All have matching pencil sketches. I also have Gokinjo Monogatari PP packs and Ai Yazawa swag up for auction--NANA and Ren mascots. And more Marmalade Boy vending cards as well.I have new gems that I've cut. Please go take a look at them!! They're listed in the More Gems link.
17 February, 2004 Look at this, I'm typing again. Yes, I'm still boycotting Fiesta Mart--I'll explain in detail elsewhere. I've put up some Ai Yazawa cell phone backgrounds and Live Journal icons to those who love Ai Yazawa such as myself. I went to Tapioca Express today, and it's SOOOO good. I love their Red Bean icy and squid balls--if you're near a Tapioca Express, you have to try it!! There's one in Houston!! -- the only one in Texas. I still have extra NANA phone mascots as well as Gokinjo Monogatari PP packs (6 left) and vending cards--still have vending sets for Marmalade Boy 2, 3, and 4 as well. Nothing else is for sale!
26 December, 2003 My page has gotten over 1 MILLION HITS!!!! It happened 21 December. WooHoo!!I have completed my latest original piece of jewelery. This one I made for my cousin Della, and it is called Della's Soleil. I am very proud of it; it turned out beautifully.I have new auctions up--more cels, more NANA, more Ai Yazawa--NANA mascots!! Don't want to miss out on those. I've been working on chocolate lately--making truffles, chocolate boxes, etc. It's frustrating yet soothing at the same time. I still wish I could find my truffle recipe from 8th grade; those were the absolute best--still searching, though...
10 December, 2003 I finally put up more auctions--one of the Faye Valentine cels is up--ends 11 December, so go check it out. I also have up some MKR cels, Gokinjo PP packs, Ai Yazawa Beauteen bags, and more. I'm kinda nervous, tomorrow night I'm going to some Vince Lombardi award dinner with my work. I have to dress up for the occasion. It should be fun, although it's supposed to be for a football lineman (linebacker?). I know nothing of football. Even if I see one of them, I'll have no idea who he is. I'm definitely looking forward to the food, though. Not much else going on. It's gotten cold here, so I'm going to hunt for a new coat tomorrow during my lunch hour. I found out Duel Jewel is coming to Houston next October, so I'm still deciding if I should go see them or not. I'm fascinated by them and I don't know why. Time to go iron.Faye Valentine is up for auction. Also Magic Knights Rayearth--new cels are up. All have matching pencil sketches. I also have Gokinjo Monogatari PP packs and Ai Yazawa swag up for auction.
20 September, 2003 Wow, yet another update, well, not really. I've been really super busy lately, plus I've been sick. I sounded like Marge Simpson's sisters if you can imagine that. Since my last update, Hanayori Dango has come to an end--it's so sad--I've been reading that comic since I was 11 years old--that's 13 years I've been reading that!!! ...and now it's over :-( My latest non anime passion has been concave faceted gemstones--have any of you seen these? They're gorgeous! If you're interested in them, contact me. I'll put pics up later. I have lots of Ai Yazawa stuff for auction (now and pending)--Paradise Kiss phonecard, of course Gokinjo cards--packs and cards, and I also have Gokinjo video tapes--I'm finally parting with my first 5 volumes. Time to go eat!! Will have Gokinjo Monogatari videos, cards, dolls, and Paradise Kiss telephone cards up NOW. NANA stuff too!!
16 August, 2003 Goodness me!! I'm actually writing something up here. Yes, it's been a while since my last "update". Also, like an idiot I forgot my password to actually update (I was off by one space, go figure). Since then, I've gotten a regular job at Ben Bridge Jewelers, I've gotten a kitty (his name is Boopy--I'll explain the name later); he's my midget leopard. All in all, I've been pretty busy lately. I have things to put up-- Ai Yazawa items, things from NANA and ParaKiss, as well as some Marmalade Boy stuff. Hey, have you all heard about Tokyopop, Ai Yazawa's and Courtney Love's endeavour that's about to go on, Princess Ai? Should prove to be interesting. Since I'm such a Yazawa nerd, I'm going to have to check it out. I've also become a bit of a fan of Duel Jewel. Something about that Yuya guy I find so intriguing--must be that jeweled mask he wears. I saw them at A-kon this year. It was also at A-Kon I discovered I really need a new camera (I've had my same camera since I was 9). I'm going to go eat some guacamole right now -- my latest addiction. I'll write more sooner (better sooner than later, right?)
7 February, 2003. Still searching for Clwyd...Today is a very special day. Do you know what day it is?? Hmmmm...What day could it be? I actually am doing somewhat of an update. Remember everyone, I'm going to be moving again (that's right, again, for like the 9th time in the last year, but I'm still going to be in Texas). I'm setting up a new tester website for some of my crafts as well. As soon as I find the link from my digital camera to my PC, I'll be updating the flowers like mad, but for now, I can only describe them... Here's the URL http://leighseeds.bravepages.com/ I'm obsessed with American Idol again. Everyone, please watch and vote for Clay Aiken, he's awesome, and he goes by the nick name Gonzo. How can anyone not like Gonzo? Anyway, he'll be performing 11 Feb. on the Fox network at 7pm Central time. Go check him out; you'll be very happy you did.Anyway, more Gokinjo stuff going up soon (for real this time), more Marmalade Boy, and more NANA. I'm going to go for now and write my little neice a letter -- since she can read a bit in english now, she apparently waits by the mailbox everyday to see if she gets mail..ahhh, to be 4 again. Now all I have to do is save up for another trip to France to see her...she's my favourite human.Snack of the week, Orient's Delight Sweet Red Mung Bean mixed with Chaokoh Coconut Gel and diced pineapple -- a very sweet and tasty treat that I would recommend to anyone. Until next time... Oh, my brother's film debut Strangeheart is coming out St. Patrick's Day, go check it out!! He plays the part of Devin. It's a Monty Python-esque version of Braveheart told through the views of a bunch of drunken idiots. Hopefully it'll be better than my film debut in The New Guy (I don't even think my own parents went to see that one, but it was entertaining, stupid, but entertaining)... And now I will part, I have to open the store tomorrow, yecch..
People, please DO NOT use my scans in your ebay auctions or any of your auctions. Don't use them as any type of selling point. They take a long time to do, and you could at least ask first. You may not see it, but my name is on each scan. Because of a mass increase of taking scans off auctions I put up, I make it a bit more noticeable now. If you use my scans for your page, at least ask first, and DO NOT directly link my scan onto your page because that's taking bandwidth away from me, and I really don't appreciate that.
15 December, Gokinjo Monogatari vending card #0 prism and NANA phonecard auctions ending at 10:30pm PT. Go check them out!! I also have up numerous other auctions, such as more NANA, Card Captor Sakura, Marmalade Boy, Full Moon wo Sagashite (the Eternal Snow music box, zen-in clock and furoku), and more!!
12 November 2002 MWell, since my last update, I've had three auctions (sorry about that), not much updating (thank you, Preston, for pointing that out to me--disappear for like 5 months, and then talk about my thrilling update : Þ). I had a horrible birthday, an even worse Halloween (I looked darn cute, though--went as Felicia from Dark Stalkers), but at least I still have my health, right? I'm updating as we speak, and Yazawa fans, I have quite a treat in store for you. For the moment, I am going to go look for a nice cage for my future sugarglider, Clwyd. I'm finally going to get one!!! After all of these years, too. For those of you wondering how I came up with the name Clwyd (sounds like clue - id ), it's the name of a town in Wales that I always liked. Also, if anyone has a good recipe for nori and sesame seed salad, please tell me, I've been looking everywhere for it but can't find it. I tried Nippan Daido, but to no avail. I'm also addicted to red bean boba at the moment. I perfected my boba over a year ago, but I have yet to perfect this particular flavour. If you have any ideas, please share. Also, please visit Josh's page at www.wendycomic.com since I'm still the official live action Wendy :ÞI'm going to be adding a bizarre story section some point in time since I seem to live in the Twilight Zone lately.
Requesting help from all of you tech savvy people. The website I created from my sister http://mignonsgreatroom.com has been hijacked by some group in Hong Kong. If you can help get it back, please tell me!! I spent a lot of time on that page. It was awesome. I've added some more words down below in the update section. I'm updating as we speak, just for you, Preston.
14 September 2002 Much has happened since I last updated. I moved to Houston, for one, so I'm here. I then had some issues with DSL, but that's all taken care of now. After I move out of this complex, I'll tell you all where NOT to live in Houston. I have up numerous Gokinjo products--sewing machine, sewing sets, CDs--no, still haven't scanned in the Memorial Seal Set, but I HAVE scanned in the Seal Maker Collection--very cute. I will also be adding a NANA section in the next couple of weeks featuring various NANA items I have--mainly phonecards and postcards. Not much for auction right now, I've been working on beading--beaded flowers, gem cutting, and also pearl stringing. I may be selling some of those creations in the near future, so keep an eye out, please. I still have Marmalade Boy, Gokinjo Monogatari, Morning Musume, Rurouni Kenshin, and various other card sets still available. Please ask for prices, or take a look in the Old News section. I'll try to scan in the remaining Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne zen-in items I have (been saying that since 2000 now). I believe that's everything for right now. Please give me time to answer emails--have A LOT to go through since having these computer issues--when installing DSL, EVERYTHING was lost. Luckily, I backed up everything not even a week beforehand (thank goodness for that). The guy on the "help" line made things worse, and I ended up having to reformat my computer. The moral of the story is to always have a backup, and never call a help line.
27 July 2002Lots of things to put up. Thank you to everyone who participated in my auctions that I once again failed to announce due to my ftp client not working... grrrr ;< I will be auctioning off some cels very soon, so please take a look at them here, however, the Magic Knights Rayearth and Card Captor Sakura ones have been sold.

6 March, 2002 It's been a while since my last update...sorry ^^; Lots of homework and getting ready for my final. I only wish we had some kind of break, even two days would be nice :-( Thank you to everyone who participated in my Morning Musume keychain auctions. I will soon have some MM clear file and shitajiki auctions as well as some cards as well (Trading Collection Part 3). I also have new scans up in the Morning Musume section found here.

Once again, none of my UFO catcher dolls are for sale. None of the Flame of Recca or Love Hina items are for sale, so please don't write to offer to take things off of my hands. Their not for sale or trade. Only extras are for sale, and since I'm at school in Cali, and my things are in Florida, no trades are going on any time soon unless they are the Morning Musume extra cards I have here. I got my GEM microscope and diamond tester on friday, so that was really cool. I've been looking at everything under that thing :)Snack of the week is Calbee Shrimp Chips--very tasty, and they actually taste like shrimp too, but NEVER eat the wasabi ones...unless you have like two gallons of water nearby.Morning Musume Bromides Part 3--member lots!! One week left on them.
24 November, 2001. My latest MoMusu auctions are ending tomorrow along with my latest Nakayoshi auction (#12) with all the furoku, including the Maki Goto doll.

Also, I have up the first two Bromide series for Morning Musume; I'll be putting the link up for those in the trading cards and series sections..no, not the series section.

One day left on them.; Also, Nakayoshi #12 with the MMaki Goto doll and other furoku--sealed
7 November, 2001. It's been a while since my last update. I'm all moved into my apartment in Cali, and I started my gemological studies yesterday. I think it will be a good year :) My Morning Musume card auctions end tomorrow, so please check those out. I should be getting more things up very soon.

7 August, 2001. Keep an eye out for the new PP cards. PP cards for Kare Kano, Gokinjo Monogatari, CardCaptor Sakura, and Morning Musume will be up very soon!!!
30 July, 2001. I guess the most obvious update is that I changed my front page and added some additional pages, such as the Cliques page and the Old News page. I still have lots of things to scan in, but my new Morning Musume obsession has been taking up a lot of time (don't moan, they're not so bad; they're just happy)
