So Miss K of Aromaleigh has just released her newest collection for order. And holy crap, guys, I want to order them SO much. The collection is called Victoria's Revenge and it's very Victorian/steampunk/fantastic, with color names like Scratched Scruples and Mania's Focus and Gaslight Tears. Moreover, the colors are gorgeous (click on the picture to zoom in). Consequently, half of me is trying desperately to remind myself that I said 'no spending money on frivolities while apartment-hunting and -furnishing' and the other half is trying desperately to convince myself that $25 for a sample set wouldn't really hurt, would it? Argh, I have no self-control.

The apartment search goes on, but I think I may go with the studio I looked at last week. I liked it best of all the places I've seen and I know I can afford it - it's a studio, but eh. At least I'll have my own kitchen! I'm looking at another place tomorrow, but the hassle of getting in touch with the owner just to schedule a showing has not impressed me, so it would have to be a really nice apartment.

In unrelated news, I finally watched 'Let The Right One In' last night. It was fantastic, subtle and creepy and heartbreaking. And such brilliant casting! It was funny, they had a short behind the scenes featurette, and it ends with the director saying that he thinks the film became so successful because they were able to make it with artistic freedom and integrity. I couldn't help but wonder if this was a veiled jab at the American remake scheduled to be released later this year. (Google says yes.) Why, Hollywood, WHY?

(Though I must admit, I am interested to see if Chloe Moretz is up to the role of Abby/Eli. And I enjoyed Cloverfield. So the American version might not suck. We'll see.)

(Also-also, are they seriously considering sequels to both Cloverfield and Kick-Ass? No, seriously, WHY?)
