I love “accidental” eBay purchases.
As most of you probably know, I am a complete, geeky Whovian. I have a large and growing collection of Doctor Who action figures and toys.
Along with the 5″ action figures, the company also made a limited line of 12″ dolls – completely articulated so you can pose them.
A friend threatened to get one of them for me last birthday, but I declined, as they are a bit creepy and cost way too much.
I found one on eBay last week. The starting bid was super cheap, and I thought, “why not?? I’ll bid a few quid on it just for the fun, and someone will end up paying a huge amount for the silly doll. But wouldn’t it be hilarious if…”
So, yeah. The auction ended at Â£3.15.
I now have a giant David Tennant action figure on my desk. LMAO!
Aside from being ever so slightly crosseyed (a fixable factory mistake), it looks a LOT like him. The shape of his nose is absolutely perfect, down to the crookedness and the oddly-shaped flat spot on the bridge. I’ve drawn David, I know his face a little too well. hahah.
I laugh every time I look at the silly thing. omg. He’s going to be hidden in plain sight somewhere for next time my friend comes over, just to freak her out. *grin*
Feeling: highly amused!

My Christmas display, freshly finished.
That’s only half of my Doctor Who collection too.. the other ones didn’t get quite the festivities that these did. And yes, the 3rd Doctor is sonicking a light.

Ah gotz mah hurrs cut!
Yaaay haircuts. It’s basically the same it’s been for a long time now, but my stylist did it slightly different this time to take some of the bulk out. It came out mega-curly too! When she was scrunching gel stuff into it, she said “GOD this is SO CUTE, I want your hair SO – BAD.” *lol*
I want to put some black chunks in with the burgundy (which has to be touched up anyway) one of these days, so I’m going to try and save up to have her do that. She had a really good idea for how it would look.
Other than that, boring day. I stopped by Free Geek to buy a VGA monitor cable so I can properly hook my laptop up to the plasma TV. Radio Shack wants $30 for their cables – I paid $2 for an unused cable at Free Geek. Yeah, the $2 one isn’t gold-plated, but I really don’t think I would notice a difference. :P
