As of right now--  
I know I've been a little loose with money recently, but it's all going to come to a stop. Besides gasoline and Christmas and Birthday gifts (which might end up being a little shabby...I'm really sorry, guys) I'm not going to spend on anything I don't absolutely need. As of right now, I'm starting up the New Mexico fund with both the Kaiba Family Fortune (which is empty right now...I need some cash to put in there XO) and my bank account. Should I save enough in my bank account, the Kaiba Family Fortune will go to Otakon expenses. I believe I'll need around 500 dollars for the week trip to New Mexico...with my paycheck of 40 dollars a week, that's 12.5 weeks, which is about 3 and an 8th months. Subtracting gas, at 25 dollars a week, that makes about 6 and a half months. Subtracting Christmas and Birthday expenses, which are usually around 100 dollars plus the 25 I owe Ami, that's another 3 weeks. So, about 7 months will be required to save that, not including money given from relatives, not including money earned over the summer, not including classes substituted during the year. That means that 7 out of the next 10 months, I will be scrimping.

That all being said, any donations will be gratefully accepted. ♥

To do list:
☂ Ask mom to pay for gas
☂Pay Ami her 25 dollars XP;;
☂Go wig shopping (how does this thursaday sound, Ami? After school on the half day?)
☂Find an obi for Arielle
☂Get things tried on and get costumes to respective people to try them on.

Tis all for now.

Maybe we can do secret santas again this year, if you want. I don't think any of us really have a lot to be spent on gifts at the moment...

And I'll be with you on Thursday, so if you go wig shopping I'll come along.

Oh, and I'll see if I can get over to my grandparents' tomorrow for the yukata so Arielle can try it on Thursday morning.

Cool, sounds like a plan :D

btw, do you/your parents know how to put on a kimono? Because I was trying and having a lot of difficulties...
S: sexybackyomimashou on October 24th, 2007 02:31 am (UTC)
Um...I don't know. I'll find out if anyone knows. I never even knew it was a difficult thing, besides the obi-tying.

It's actually extremely difficult. Don't you ever wonder why people always need help getting changed? V's never even done it on her own. And the obi tying is a whole different story @__@;;
S: sexybackyomimashou on October 24th, 2007 07:09 pm (UTC)
I see. Hopefully, with three sets of hands (or four, if Arielle's there) we'll be able to figure it out.

I know, but then I just feel bad because I didn't get everyone something, and besides, I couldn't do my shopping with Ami then.

Ok, well I won't be insulted if you don't spend a lot on my gift. ^^
ミランダ (大丈夫)faded_lace on October 24th, 2007 02:26 am (UTC)
That's good ^^;; Sorry. I'll try!
S: sexybackyomimashou on October 24th, 2007 02:29 am (UTC)
No worries ^^; I'm currently practically broke, myself...
ミランダ (大丈夫)faded_lace on October 24th, 2007 02:41 am (UTC)
Yeah... ;;

So, do I still need to dig up my fake obi, in that case?

And I'd say yes to Thursday, except I'll have Patches with me then, so I don't quite know how that'd work out.
S: sexybackyomimashou on October 24th, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
Yes please~ Because I still need one.
ミランダ (大丈夫)faded_lace on October 24th, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
Yes, please ♥

Well, we can drop her off at your house, right? We have an ample amount of time.

ohh what's going on with the trying on of costume-age tomorrow?? I don't know if I can get a ride so errr, I dunno. My dadda has work :\ I'll try though.
ミランダ (大丈夫)faded_lace on October 25th, 2007 02:59 am (UTC)
Well, if you can't get a ride home, you could come with me and Sarah to the studio and chill and do homework, then get Sarah to drive you home...? Or you could ask Ami really really really nicely. I really really really really really really want you to come thoughhhhhh ;___;
