I don't buy new plastics that often, and new Traditionals are an even rarer addition to my collection. After scoring a black Proud Arabian Foal at an antique mall, though, I had to start searching for a mother. I finally found a winner: Carinosa, at the right price and the right time. She arrived today, and wow. Such a gorgeous sculpture! I dubbed mine Carnivale, and her baby has been named Casio.
In other news...there really isn't a lot of other news. I've been painfully lazy all day, and it's the kind of lazy that doesn't have a very good cure. My house is busy and loud today, and I'm having difficulty focusing on a lot of the really important stuff that needs to be done. I'll keep plugging away at it, but I don't think today is going to be very productive.
Also! The pilot light on our water heater went out last night. I discovered this when I went to take a shower. It didn't get fixed last night, but no one told me that. My first thought this morning was "Shower!" and alas, the water was still very, very cold. A repairman can't be here for another 3 hours. It's funny how when you can't do something, it's often the only thing you can think about. And by funny, I mean start out laughing and end up sobbing hysterically.
