It's been a little bit since I've done any updates here. My excuse is that I've been pretty busy playing catch up with work and with life since the move. It's only been 3 or so months though, I've got plenty of time for things to carry on longer -hah.
Age: 41 as of Friday 8D
Meaning behind your username: Well normally I use Nezumitoo as my handle, and did here too once... until I rage quit one fine day. The next fine day (which may or may not have been a few months worth of fine days), I decided I was over my little tantrum of 'rage against the machine' and came back... only to have completely forgotten my password and email used for said password recovery. So I created this account, using my secondary used user name since my first used user name was being used by some jerk already (i.e. me). As for it -well, Nezumi is my chosen name, of which was chosen for my namesake Sailor Iron Mouse (or Chuuko Nezumi). Too for the first username is well because, when I started using Nezumi as my handle I figured a lot of other peeps would as well, so I'm Nezumi too. This one is because chuu sounds like too, it's also the sound a mouse makes, and is also Iron Mouse's last name. Hence = Nezumitoo and or Nezumi-chuu.
Favorite music: my favorite genres range a bit, but mostly it's classical or classical opera, rock opera, 80's awesome, kpop, jpop, etc. My favorite music honestly depends on the mood I'm in at the time. At this particular point in time, my favorites have been Mozart's everything, the Klingon theme from the first Star Trek movie (Star Trek the Motion Picture that is), the extended orgy scene music from the original Conan the Barbarian movie and that silly 'Back in Time' song Pitbull did for the 3rd Men in Black movie. Or at least, these have been the songs I've been listening to over and over again while I'm working out.
Favorite movie: Hrm, hmmm. I have a lot of favorite movies actually. My current repeat watchers has been the Hobbit movies (mainly the first two, but I watch them all in progression when I'm working), all the Harry Potter movies, even the 3rd one, the original star Trek movies save perhaps the first one and the Final Frontier (which I still watch despite how horrible it truly was), the Narnia films, the Pirates of the Caribbean films (because Barbossa = my love<3), all the Resident Evil films save the 4th one, Rise of the Guardians, The 13th Warrior so on and so forth. I could go on forever with these because as said, I like me some movies. My classic favorites will always be Labyrinth, Legend, the original Tron, Logan's Run and more.
Favorite TV show: Steven Universe is at this moment, my number one all time favorite televee show. Did anyone watch the recent Steven Bomb? How frikkin awesome was it? (Steven Bomb #3 is coming in July. So. Excited. Omglob o_o!). Gravity Falls is another (cliff hanger noooooo), Adventure Time, Sherlock, Property Brothers and Hoarders. There are more, but those are the mains.
Hobbies/interests: Vintage toy collecting (mainly My Little Pony, but so many more), toy collecting in general, art, laughable writing, RP, reading, sewing, movie prop collecting, game playing when time allows it, collecting out of print fairy tale books, Mister's couch and groomer.
Random fact about yourself: I am stronger than you. I am a conversation. I am made o-o-o-o-of Lo-o-o-o-ve.

4. Which doll have you had the longest? How long has it been?
Megumi, she came home Valentine's Day 2003. It's been 12 some years.
5. Which doll is your favorite?
They are all my favs, honestly. I like them all for their own reasons and I can't look at any of them and think -this one is better than that one- if I could, I prolly wouldn't have as many
6. Are you waiting on any dolls now? If yes, which one(s)?
Why yes, yes I am actually ->
Glot Blossom of Earth (on layaway) <-got this mainly for Rune's body, but if I like the head when it comes in, he may be turned into a Storybook World character as well.
Cerisedolls Ellana (Also on layaway, my grosh!) <-my chibi's major Bday gifty to me. She's the purple grey version and she's going to be a grown version of the Shadow creature Thial ran across during his travels.
Dollzone Big Dipper (8D) -this little guy is going to be from Rune's world, perhaps a sibling, or a pet - I dunno yet.
7. What is your grail doll?
I don't think I've ever quite understood the term 'grail doll' because all the dolls I've wanted, I've eventually gotten. All the dolls I want right now, I have either incoming or on layaway. I mean there are dolls I'd prolly like to get at some point - like an actual Unoa body for Sentry, or a body for chibi!Fanuel, or a couple of artist dolls and the like but I can't really consider them grails because a grail to me is unattainable -something that isn't so much a thing with me. If it takes me years to save, or years to attain, I'll eventually get them. That's what this hobby is to me, a game of saving, sacrificing and patience. Because of it, I don't so much consider any doll I want or might want in the future unattainable -or 'grail' *shrugs*
8. Did you learn to do something new because of this hobby? (e.g. photography, painting, sewing)
I've always been sewing, always been writing (or summarizing), creating worlds, storylines, crafting, drawing, etc - I think maybe the only thing I've learned specifically for the hobby would be the actual customizing of the dolls themselves, and photography - since I had no interest in either before I began. Oh and leatherwork I guess, since before the dolls I only ever worked in fabrics alone.
9. Have you made any friends you might otherwise not have because of this hobby?
I have, I've also lost a lot of them as well over the years. But whether attained or lost, or maintained (because I've also had quite a few that have stuck around for as many years as those who haven't<3) I prolly would never have met any of them if it weren't for the hobby and I'm very grateful for it because of that. I'll never regret the friendships I've made through this doll beast community, good or bad, because I've made some dear ones through it that I'll treasure until the end of my days /sappy hearts have been inserted here.
10. What are your doll plans for this coming year?
Finishing all the many billions of things I've been meaning to finish for the last... since the beginning of time. Or the last four years anyway. I want to complete the dolls that are incomplete, get all my crews' wardrobes up to date, finish mods I've been meaning to finish, get correct eyes and wigs and update old aesthetics and the like. It's a hobby of forever WIPs and patience, but this year's the year for me to get the bulk of my to-do lists done. I swears it @_@ /m/
Tagging all the peeps who I speak to semi-regularly (you know who you are) which, soz for not naming individually, but it's almost Mister's evening walk time and she's currently making it near impossible to type all this out with her paw swipes and face licks xD
Also those whom I don't speak to on a reg basis, because why not.
Also also, thank you very much for the birthday wishes, all three or so of you who gave them. It was very much appreciated ^_^<33
