EXPIRED Anime & Manga Deals: The Twelve Days of January Edition

On the twelfth day of January, my bad luck gave to me:

  • 12 new dead cell zones
  • 11 Wi-Fi kickoffs
  • 10 random errors
  • 9 “cannot find it”s
  • 8 chats with CS
  • 7 days of no heat
  • 6 sleepless nights
  • 5 inches of snow
  • 4 cancelled orders
  • 3 sick days
  • 2 hot midnights
  • and the Lions still being the Lions.

Okay, the numbers may be slightly off… but only slightly. Enjoy the deals more than I’m enjoying January… which shouldn’t be too hard. If you’ll excuse me, I’ll be huddling next to my Vornado heater until the furnace is fixed.

    I hope all that time without heating doesn’t damage your water pipes. Seriously, let your place get cold enough and they can burst.

    1. Krystallina

      Have had pipes frozen before in another house, but fortunately they didn’t burst.

      But huzzah! I have heat again!

  2. crimson613

    i wonder if 2017 is cursed, i also had some bad luck when it started orz and oh wow i want to go to b&n now xD (but must resist!)

    1. Krystallina

      Online is nice because a good number of preorders are included in the sale. (Plus most are cheaper than the store anyway.)

      But I’m hoping I use up all my bad luck for 2017 in January… (Yeah, right.)

  3. Leafさんの夢が。。。

    So sorry about all the bad things that happened. And now once more you drain my wallet rofl

  4. The Otaku Judge

    On the bright side your misfortune led to an amusing poem. Cool plushies by the way.

    1. Krystallina

      I need Shogunyan and Baddinyan so I can have a full cat army.
