Julliane's background

Like most of my dolls of course Julliane has a background too. Her mom died when she was very little - perhaps 1½ year old. So she grew up with her mom's brother that was 20 years older than her mom and his wife. They didn't really care about her. They just wanted her so be well behaved and look adorable so they could show her off to friends. They didn't understand her at all and they didn't want to try. They saw her like a doll or something.

Her aunt used to dress her up in pink with lace and frills and ruffles and such and she was always told to be careful and not make her clothes dirthy. The result is that she hates pink and lace and ruffles. She likes simple clothes in more or less dark colours - or at least not pastel.

She was never allowed to be with other children either and she is very very shy with very little confidence in herself. When she first came here she had no idea what to make of the other kids. However Vigdis who is also somewhat unsure of herself even though she's not shy like Julliane started to talk to her. They bonded very fast and have become best friends. They have much in common and they really need each other. And they are so cute together.

A shiny new one.

So last Sunday a week after my computer went down my vey good friend Grafty came to visit me. Or rather my computer. He quickly found out that my graphis card card had died. (I'm thinking of having a funeral for it.) So he borrowed me a small graphic card - you know the kind you can't really use to play games.

After he left I wanted to talk to my friend Annefia on Skype . . . and my microphone didn't work! I managed to talk to her on my laptop but it was really annoying. The next day I texted Grafty about it and he told me to make sure that the headphone was pluged in properly. It was. Then he told me to check if the plugs in the back was plugged in properly - wich they were. At least I at first thought they were. Until I realized he had pluged the microphone in the wrong place. When I told him he said something like: Oh okay really there you go who would have thought that wonders will never cease but isn't it lovely weather today. (This was 10pm and it was dark)

Then today he came back with a card we had agreed he should get for me. It's somewhat better than the one that died so it's very cool. My computer is actually 7 years old (and Grafty build it for me) but it's not that bad because back then is was SUPER good and fast. Even before I was able to play Settlers 7 even though the graphic would lag a little now and then. Now of course it doesn't lag at all. I'm very happy.

All of this of course have ruined my dolly plans. I was trying to save up so I could get a fullset next time Fairyland have an event but after having to pay a PukiFee - ehhh I mean about 250$ for a new graphic card I'm not sure I'll be able to do that. Sigh!

I hate when that happens!

I have decided to try and update more often and also talk a bit about none doll stuff in this blog. Instead of starting a new blog I'll just change the way I use this one.

Yesteday my computer broke down. I was playing a game when all of a sudden it wasn't turned on any more. Once again I realized how difficult it is for me to do without my computer. I have a laptop - a very old and cheap laptop but I have trouble using it. The screen is way too small, the keyboard is difficult to use and I don't have anywhere I can sit comfertable when using it.

The solution to those problems is of course to hook it up with the keyboard, monitor and mouse I normally use for my desktop. Sadly I can't do that myself. Not that I wouldn't be able to figure it out. After all it's pretty straight forward but it involved going down on the floor and I can't do that because of my physical problems.

Luckely my son was able to come and set it up for me. He's such a good boy. Or man perhaps - he's 31. LOL

The hours between my computer broke down and I was on my laptop was horrible though. I didn't know what to do with myself. I couldn't Check my e-mail and talk to my friend in Sweden, I couldn't check forums or anything or look for new dolly stuff to want to buy for several hours. A true nightmare I tell you. I'm sure I have been traumatized by it! LOL
