As for that cookbook, got a reply from the guy auctioning it, and he's fine with not-quite-immediate payment. Shipping on the thing is $10 though, which brings the final total up to ~$80, but like I told him, I know if I take my time and try to get one that's less expensive, Christmas will come before I know it, and I still won't have one.
The other thing I've been thinking about getting is something like this <3 That'll be my Christmas (or maybe birthday) present though ^^ Yeah, it's not quite a present if you buy it yourself, but I need some more justification outside of simply wanting them.
And as for that other order (if you're on my friends list, look at the 5th paragraph of the cut in my previous entry to find out what they actually are), got another email from them today that said, in it's entirety "Itll be out shortly :)". Didn't think of it when I was writing the first reply, but I just sent them something saying "Is that for sure this time?" It'll make about the third email I've gotten that said, in one way or another "They'll be going out soon". Ugh.
But what can I say? I told them that if there was no sign of it being sent out by the 8th, I'd be canceling the order. The 8th is still three days off, which gives them plenty of time to say "It's been sent". As long as I know they're on the way, I'll be happy. Well, to a degree. I'm not quite in as bad a mood as I was last night, but some of the things I said still stand.
It's kind of funny, actually, but I can't think of the proper way to explain it.
Recipe for Turnabout is still coming along at a decent pace, and is actually starting to get interesting now. Once again though, had to get up for something earlier this morning while I was playing it, and reasoned that there couldn't be much more left to the case. How wrong I was. This one is much more interesting than Turnabout Big Top was. At least at far as it being the third case is concerned.
This transfer really is taking a long time to complete...
