An important April announcement
« on: March 31, 2017, 08:57:57 PM »
Dear Jonathan Akira-Fan:
Thank you for your continued patience with us as we finish your doll. As you may have heard, we have been going through a lot here over the past several months with Matt’s health, his father’s death and number of other issues we won’t get into here (the recent zombie apocalypse hit our newly trained staff particularly hard). Your continued support of us during this time of need is greatly appreciated by both Matt and I.

However, the reason I am writing to you is to congratulate you on the completion of your new doll, which will ship this afternoon (Saturday, April 1st) with another 20 or so dolls that were also delayed by (and yes even before) our ongoing restructuring efforts. As you can see from the attached photos, we found the necklace you requested, as well as the special azure bracelet from the “Sea Turtle Conservancy” and we even included a special personalized Tampa Bay Lightening jersey with his name on it as a bonus for your understanding.

While we know an overpriced t-shirt isn’t enough to make up for the long wait or my continued lack of communication with you regarding your order, we have taken it upon ourselves to refund part of your money so you and your soon to be delivered doll can share some quality time on the ice at Amelia Arena.

Thank you for your patronage, and enjoy your doll.

Signed:



*** HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY ***

Note: You could tell it was a joke because their bracelets are red, orange, brown and black. ??? Seriously, they would look awesome in blue… especially with him wearing it. 8)

2nd Note: I have no idea whether I should post this story here, the Sin thread or the joke thread. Fortunately, that's what moderators are for. :P

Even though I saw the prank coming from the subject line, it still gutted me.

Today marks exactly two weeks since I stopped feeling like a victim and decided to buy from a company that would follow through on its promises. I have not received a firm date of delivery, but I am convinced that he is coming shortly (if the demolding message comes this week, he can still be an Aries 8) ...but he's more likely a Taurus which is either really good :angel: or really bad >:D depending on which site you're reading).




Sadly, I am almost positive that "Akira" is gone. :( I have made peace with that...  :angel:

I was going to make a "new" thread for this, ::) but I'll wait until AFTER he arrives to do that (Grenouille is okay with adding another boy to his post, right? :laugh:). I have a whole set of posts written introducing him and his cute\quirky personality... but, who knows, I may end up having to completely rewrite them after he arrives.  :P

Thanks for reading this, and I hope you - and your various, um, "housemates," ;) had a good Easter.  :) :)

I was thinking about something like this for a first outfit. ;D



...until I saw that Wal-Mart wanted $42.95 for distressed jeans. :o

I haven't priced the shoes (or glasses) yet, but they are adorable. I love the clothes spread on the floor look (because it implies he's already wearing his best outfit :thumb: ), but I don't want his introduction to Muscle Beach to be naked like "Aaron's" was :( ... though something tells me, my doll-to-be would secretly enjoy all that ogling.  :laugh:

That outfit is perfect! Beachy and meaningful. Not much longer now!

Can't wait to see my new bro.  :thumb: I know more about astronomy than astrology. So I predict you'll be gettin it on under the stars... and the Eta Aquarids meteor shower.  8)
