sometimes i miss being your friend
then I look at your tumblr and roll my eyes
So it starts off in a grocery store that’s not being used for that purpose anymore. Now apparently it’s a camp where you learn how to be a superstar or some bullshit. So I’m there and I’m on a team with these awesome people and my old friend from work who I haven’t seen in years, Carly. So this dude who looks a lot like AJ from the Backstreet Boys proceeds to tell me that we’re gonna fail the group challenge and that I got off easy having good people in my group. Fuck you dude. Then he leaves cause end of day announcements were going on around the registers and there were a few desks set up in between registers and I was sitting in one and a gay guy that looked like Damien from Mean Girls was sitting behind me. So then we though announcements were done but nope cause this is a fun camp and whoever has a microphone has to sing the daily song. Well Carly had one so she’s up there singing away with some other ppl and they crying girl from Mean Girls is sitting kitty corner from me and she’s crying and I’m all omg dis bitch. So then Carly sits in the desk in front of me and I’m all “You ok bro?” and she’s all no I miss my mom. (A little back story… Carly’s brother used to work with us too and he killed himself a few months later her mom died.) So I go, You know she’s always with you right? And she nodded and said she knew. Then these nuns come up on the scene singing a song for us. Some of them are older (one looked a lot like Betty White) and others were in their 30s-40s. Well so they’re singing and then this priest guy joins them and he has two desserts and idk who he gave the first one to but he then goes. “Who should we give this delicious plum cobbler to? How about you Shannon?” And he puts it on my desk and says “Do you feel the holy spirit.” And I don’t want to be rude so in my sarcastic ass way I say “Oh I sure do!” And then this priest fool puts on a red stylized mask and goes “We are The Blood of Lazarus Choir!” And then there was a big smoke flash and he and his nuns were gone. So I immediately stood up and go “Who wants this cursed plum cobbler?” and the guy behind me goes “omg stop being so dramatic.” and starts eating it.
See this hot piece of resin? (also known as a ABJD - More specifically he’s a Fairyland Minifee Elf Shushu.)
His name is Elijah and he’s my British vampire who goes by the alias Shadow (Because he’s dat good at da killin’s)
Now Elijah wasn’t my first BJD, he was my first in the mini size though. He also arrived to me on Christmas Eve 2007. So he’s been very special to me from the beginning. When I first got him I had no clothes that fit him and ended up finding a hula skirt from a stuffed animal I had at the time that fit. How undignified. Even after then he only had one shirt and a pair of female gaucho pants. More dignified but still not acceptable. Don’t worry he has more a selection these days.
But not a decent pair of shoes.
Since I’ve gotten him I’ve sold the first doll I ever got, many dolls have come and gone. Some I said I would never get rid of but have ended up getting a different doll for the character. Never Elijah.
I’ve been going through a difficult time these past few years. I’ve been out of work for 3 years now and can’t seem to find anything in my area. Thankfully I have a friend who’s letting me stay with her in a different state in a few months, so I’m hoping I can make a good life there. I’ve had to sell dolls I didn’t really want to. I narrowed my collection down and now I’m getting to the dolls that I don’t want to get rid of but have to so I can move. But never Elijah.
He’s not the most expensive doll I have but I have a special bond with him that I can’t really describe. The only other inanimate object I feel so close to is my Blanky that was made for me a few months before I was born and is literally hole-y (but I as a grown ass woman still sleep with it).
Sometimes I feel foolish for being an adult and loving dolls but then I say fuck it. They never make me feel stupid or less than. I never feel out of place with them or unaccepted. Elijah makes me happy and even if I needed the money desperately, it’d be me, him and Blanky till the end. Ride or die.
Guess we’re done here!
