Just posting something filler for now. I plan on making my 999 review today or tomorrow (posting this now so I have more incentive to not procrastinate on it). Just taking it easy, as usual, perhaps a bit too easy, if there's such a thing. I'm in a slightly good mood because my Flandre Nendoroid shipped yesterday and I managed to secure some stuff from Amiami I thought I'd lose. I also got a call from one of my father's computer illiterate friends asking me to enable tethering on his cellphone to work with his computer, offering me $50 for the job. Last time the dude paid me $100 to pirate Photoshop for him, so I certainly like taking jobs from him, because of how high he pays for such simple tasks.
Moving on to the main topic; Amiami apparently didn't get my email, or hasn't responded yet anyway, about me not having access to my old account anymore for my pre-orders. I changed the email associated with the account, but after I did that neither my new nor old emails worked on Amiami's site (which I made sure to also detail in my mail). But I saw Takolukla finally on sale, and saw I had no message in my inbox regarding my pre-order, so I knew that I'd lose my pre-order for her unless I got access to my old account (as soon as I remember where I had my first honeymoon for the security questing, I'll be glad to hop onto my email again). So I thought I lost my chance to get her, and that I'd have to wait for her to restock. But then I thought that if I can time it right, I can snag her when my pre-order expires and the one I reserved becomes open again. So I loaded up my trusty Check4Change addon to stalk the page and tell me when there's some in stock again. I was about to go to sleep last night when my updater told me that there were 2 in stock! So I quickly took the opportunity to create a new Amiami account and snipe the buy before it was too late.
What's funny is that I used the email that I already used for my previous account as the email for my new account. As in, I used the newer email I created after losing access to my old email, and it still let me go through with it. It's odd, because I even have a notification in my box about the email change, but it seems Amiami's system just bugged up and my old account had no email at all assigned to it after I switched, despite the fact that they sent a confirmation email.
Regardless, I decided to pre-order whatever i could (thankfully everything I previously pre-ordered was still open). Now I just need to try and snipe a Patchouli plush when she's up for sale again. A handful of people never went through with their Takoluka plush orders (me included, though not by my own fault), so I'm hoping a handful will skimp out on their Patchy order and allow me to get one. I was going to get one as well, but Amiami put pre-orders for the restock up at the worst time for me (after I get a ticket and have to pay a $70 fee for being late on my rental textbook return).
Curse my indecisiveness making me miss the opportunity to buy Patchy (again).
