Ah, Fall.

Now I can't remember if it was Friday or Saturday, but it was a very cloudy day with fall temperatures all day long. It was wonderful. And Build-A-Bear sent an email showing their Halloween plushies this year, which really put me in a Fall/Halloween mood. They have an absolutely gorgeous purple and pink swirled bat called Starry Night Bat. I will most likely get her on my birthday. I'll have a birthday coupon and there's a little bit left on a gift card, so I won't have to pay full-price. I also have the urge to name her Cassiopeia, which would certainly fit with her official name. But I feel slightly guilty to name her that, as I'm going to have a mutant bat in a Halloween Turtles fic named that, and she probably won't be a very nice lady. But I like the name, so there's no reason why the plushie would have to be considered the same character, even if she shares the name. I named the first bat Milly, shortly after I named a character that in a Perry fanfic who also ends up being a darker character (to my memory). They're definitely not the same character, especially since the Perry one is a human, LOL.

Last night on the news the weathergirl said that the temperatures are mostly going to be out of the summer heat levels now. I am so happy! This summer has been too, too hot. I hate summer heat. I am so beyond ready for Fall.

I'm listening to my Halloween playlist for the first time this season. I usually start Halloweening around September 13th. Plenty of time to enjoy spooky TV episodes!

I hope I'm going to be able to find a wig that will work for playing Baxter. You'd think it would be easy, but I'm starting to get a little worried after only seeing one that would work for season 1 (which seems to have promptly sold out within a week). I really want season 2. No luck online either, unless I'm using the wrong search terms. I've tried "wild brown wig," "brown mad scientist wig," and a couple of other terms. There is one that turned up that could be interesting, but it's way too dark of a brown.

I also finally have an Amazon gift card and am debating what to get with it. I figure whatever it is will be a birthday purchase, so if I decide I need to get something now while prices are low, I might try to save it for my birthday before opening it, etc. So far the thing I'm most excited about seems to be the entire Indigo arc of Pokemon for $28. I saw that last night and decided that if I still was more excited by it than anything else the next day, I should probably get it. I still feel the same, although I'm slightly debating and wondering if I should wait a little longer, because sometimes I get really excited about the thought of something for a couple of days and then something else pops up and I realize that's what I want most. I really love the Indigo episodes, though, and I wanted that set as soon as it came out, but couldn't afford it then. So I'm thinking I won't change my mind on this.

As silly as it sounds, I worry slightly that if I get it, I'll end up deciding I want to write for Pokemon and I'll abandon my Turtles fics. I really love my Turtles fics and want to keep writing them right now. But I highly doubt I'd shift to getting plunnied for Pokemon, as I rarely have before. I've had the same concerns about getting the other DuckTales and TaleSpin sets I need, but most shows I like I don't write for. It's unusual when I do get plunnied, especially as seriously as I have for the Turtles. I worried like this when I got the Knight Rider set too, but I didn't have any problems there. In fact, it helped inspire some of the fics, like the OMNUS one and the amnesia incident in the freeze fic.

Sometimes other people's plunnies inspire me too, as after being told of a plunnie, I got springboarded to a very different idea and I've been going to town with the resulting fic, which I started before the last one was done. I've been writing it all out of order. I just did a proofread and added some more content, so now I'll want to wait and do another proofread before I decide if it's done. I love when the stories churn out that fast. This one will dig more into how the recent amnesia/mind-control incident affected Michelangelo. I kind of think the next one after this will be a funny one, maybe the one based on the DuckTales episode The Money Vanishes, but we'll see.

I also put Lieutenant Schrank in the current story (that is, the most recent one I actually put up). He briefly appeared, unnamed, in The Rat King's Revenge, which is referenced in this one. He has a longer scene in this one. I needed a policeman and I decided, eh, what the heck.
