Liz Lisa x My Melody 10th collab vol 1 sweet cake OP
I brace myself for the My Melody collaborations every half year, but usually I can skip out on the winter release because it's long sleeve. I've been getting suckered in a lot lately by just convincing myself it's better to buy it and see rather than regret it and that's how I found myself frantically refreshing the website at midnight.
Just for posterity, but I'm sure no one else is going to find this interesting, I woke up a 1/2 hour before the estimated release time and tried to get to the TKL website from my laptop. It wouldn't load. Refresh refresh refresh. It won't load. That was using Firefox so I switch to Chrome. It won't load. I go to my phone and use Safari. It won't load. I go to my parent's MAC and try Safari. It won't load. I try other websites (gmail, google, facebook) and they all work. I try other Japanese websites and they all work. Meanwhile I'm freaking out and wasting precious minutes. I log out of the wifi on my phone and try again - the website loads. But here's the catch - I'm really close to my data limit for the month and there's still several days left in the billing period, and I really don't want to pay overage fees for this since it's a long sleeve dress anyway. I keep trying all my other options and nothing is working and the minutes are counting down.
I decide to bite the bullet and just switch to data since it's clearly something on my home network that's blocking the website. I really don't prefer to do the refreshing on my phone usually bc my laptop is much faster. But in any case, I see the items release and I go for the OP immediately. First choice - red. And I also try and click on the pink OP at the same time. When my cart finally loads, only the pink is in there with some error that I can't translate quick enough. Thinking there's a limit, between the two, I'd rather have red so I dump out the pink and then try and add red. It still won't go. So I hurriedly (and luckily) add back the pink and check out. Not my first choice but I did like all three colors for this collab, so I'm not disappointed.
