Oh my goodness... three words: Black Apple Update. If you know what the means, thank goodness I don't have to explain it! Yes, I sat through the update today. I was less nervous/shaky/excited as compared to the past, since I just decided to let the cards fall where they may.
I got a doll... hooray! I couldn't believe it!! Then I got back to the "shop" screen, and there was the Sleepy Sam I had hoped for, as well. I thought what the heck, the chances of getting checked out with him is slim to none.
But I ended up getting another doll!
Is it a coincidence that these dolls just happen to resemble my husband and myself?
Regardless, I am overjoyed, over-the-moon with happiness... but then I go over to her board and it hurts my heart to see how upset people are that didn't make it through check-out. I feel bad for them since I have been there at every other update... but I can only imagine it makes Emily feel horrid. The excitement and happiness of the frenzy gets bombed by the bad vibes afterwards. Nonetheless, even though I don't "know" her, I am quite proud of the Black Apple chick and her success. Makes me glad to be a 20-something crafty female!
ps... I won't be getting anything else for Christmas!
