The Bears

Bears are still MIA. Current theory (supported by svmadelyn) is that they are drug mules in Central America. This is a message to them:

All is forgiven if you come home! There are treatment centers! I'll love you anyway!

After talking to UPS and Amazon, replacement bears are being shipped and are supposed to be here on Monday. Unless they too are tempted by a life way south of the border.


To use up the rest of my medical savings, since I lose if I do not use, I went and bought glasses today. I also went to Macy's to acquire a Christmas bear (yes, another one), and was told, I kid you not, that they are not doing those anymore. They are doing a Christmas Mickey Mouse.

To which I say, bullshit. Give me my fucking bear.

So while staring hopelessly at the Christmas display, I found the Gund Godiva bears. I want to say I didn't buy it in a fit of pique, but that's a lie, and the chocolate was delicious. The Dillards bear is still out there and I'm staring at Vermont Teddy Bear Company because yes, they are expensive, but I want. I mean, the Jack Frost bear? I want that. I am thinking about the potential of selling plasma. I just don't know how to explain to put "I really need this special Teddy Bear" in a way that doesn't sound insane.

I have a goal. Some people become crazy cat ladies. I'm going to be the crazy bear lady who is found dead at one hundred and three in her apartment surrounded by the cold inanimate eyes of a plethera of bears. If you don't see it, you're not trying.

Sookie Stackhouse books arrived! Amazon had the boxed set of eight on sale, so I grabbed them all. Half way through the second ond and these are awesome. Someone promise me this does not go the way of Anita Blake, because I really like Sookie.

Also three ornaments arrived on Thursday, so yeah, crazy bear lady and crazy Christmas ornament lady. I know. I also have a growing Christmas village. Just do not judge mmkay? At least until it's too large to fit into a single room. I'm not there yet. But yeah, that's my eventual goal.

Right. Bears! My bears on Monday!

I mainlined the first eight Sookie Stackhouse books in about two weeks because they are just that good. No sign of them going the way of Anita Blake yet, thank god.

Unbearable? Really? Oh honey. Is it really intervention time already?

*hugs* I'm glad your bear situation is being resolved, and you're enjoying the leadup to this holiday. Even if it does make you a crazy person, we love you anyway.

I think this is a sign that you should look forward to the day Childe moves out- and you turn his room in to a full time bear room.

Just try to bear up under the pressure, hon. :)

Also, I just finished re-reading (as of this morning) the first eight Sookie Stackhouse books, and am about to order A Touch of Dead (Sookie Stackhouse: The Complete Stories) - all of the previously printed short stories collected together. I first read the series with a sense of anticipation that they would, inevitably, go the way of Anita Blake, what with all of the very similar supernatural elements and relationships, but was happily surprised that Sookie remains her own self throughout. Re-reading is just as much of a pleasure.

You know, if you buy a Vermont Bear, it is a little known fact that you can just buy the outfits separately if you ask nicely.

So instead of having one expensive bear in a Christmas outfit, you could have one expensive bear with a wide and varied wardrobe!

Hello Crazy Bear Lady. I'm Crazy All Kinds of Stuffed Animals Lady. I'm currently contemplating buying the house next door just to have somewhere to put them. If you still have places to put them, then clearly you need to buy more.

if you don't already have this link : )

I just caught up with the Sookie Stackhouse books, through book eight, and I still like them, so I don't think they've Anita Blaked yet. Book nine is out, but not due out in paperback until April 2010, which is ridiculous.

I think being a crazy bear lady is a very reasonable goal, especially when compared with being a crazy cat lady. For one thing, it's unlikely that the police will find you dead at a hundred and three in your apartment with your body half eaten away by hungry stuffed bears.

"I just don't know how to explain to put "I really need this special Teddy Bear" in a way that doesn't sound insane."

Two words: Christmas Shopping. Technically true, and it's nobody's business who you're shopping for. :)


I thought that hallmark usually has a cute holiday bear, but I can't find one on their website this year. But do you remember the cute kissing bears?

Also, have you watched True Blood? It is my new favorite show, but I will warn you that I find Sookie to be a bit dense at times.

Aw c'mon, that Jack Frost bear is only about $100 with shipping. Now what if you set up a PayPal account for your friends to donate...once you finish the sequel to "You'll Get There in the End"...and then you'd get your bear! *evil grin*

Totally with you on the Vermont Teddy bears. Possibly the best teddy bears evar. When I was 12, I babysat for a lady... who paid me in bears! Because she was one of their home sewers, so she got some for very cheap. I had the huge super soft chocolate brown bear and a white bear by the end of that gig. Yey for rare bears.

Umm, non bear content - but I got a question:

Is your website gone to anyone else but me? I get a cannot be found when I try. But according to: http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/http://seperis.illuminatedtext.com/ it's just me. It's been working fine before and every other page works fine, so what's different? *flail*

should clarify: every other page works fine = I can reach every other domain/webadress I try

Interesting, now when I try I reach the site it works - but with popups. I haven't been to the site in a while but do you have advert popups on your site these days?


(Swedish lang. on Firefox but the active/marked line says Show: adress for the advertpopup)

It will be Monday in ten minutes... Are they there yet?



omg i want. :(

i hope your replacement bears make the journey safely! *crosses fingers*

Any possibility of me making an intelligent comment flew out the window when I checked out the Vermont Teddy Bear site and discovered bear in knitwear!1! With moose on its sweater! And mittens! And a hat!

Beeeeeeears. :D I love teddy bears.
