Another Q&A . . .

Me to my grandma: I need to blog.

Me to myself: Maybe I should title this post “What Should I Blog About?”

Genius self to me: A Q&A A Q&A A Q&A!!!

So. I obviously HAD to listen to myself and do another Q&A. This time around, though, instead of the questions being Alaskan themed, the questions can be about anything.

Well, I say anything, but . . .

  • Please keep your questions appropriate
  • The questions must not be personal, such as inquiries as to my real name, birthday, or Social Security number
  • You have until Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) to question away!

Have fun with this, guys. I love Q&A’s, in case you couldn’t tell. The weirder the questions, the better!

A sneak-peek at upcoming blog posts:

  • A Summer Photoshoot, Round 2
  • Lindsey’s Revenge (A Photostory)
  • Review of Tenney’s Spotlight Outfit
  • In Which I FINALLY Post The Trials of Tessa, Part 3
  • And more, which are yet to be revealed!

See ya later!

5 Things You Can Relate To If You Have An AG Doll/AG Doll Blog/AG Doll YT Channel

Hey guys, what’s up? I am taking a break today from Travels With Grace to bring you a post anyone with an AG doll can relate to. I have seen this idea a lot on YouTube but I know not everyone is allowed to watch it, so enjoy!

#1: Aren’t you a little OLD for dolls?

Well, lots of people could say the same thing about your stuffed animal obsession. But I don’t, because there’s nothing wrong with liking toys once you’re over the age of twelve. My great-aunt loves AG! And playing with dolls and photographing them are two entirely different things, so don’t criticize. (And even if you still play with your dolls, kudos to you for not feeling the need to grow up too fast!)

#2: Your dolls look like they’re staring into my soul . . . 

Okay, what is with this? AG dolls are the most realistic dolls on the market, and I think they’re totally cute! It’s just an unfortunate stereotype that has come from horror movies featuring Chucky The Doll. (By the way, I wouldn’t recommend watching that film.)

#3: Why would anyone spend so much money on a doll?

I feel like this is just rude. It’s basically saying “Why would you spend so much money on a house/car/piece of jewelry?” It’s my money. I earned it, and I will spend it as I please.

#4: You have a DOLL blog/YT channel? I’ve never heard of those . . . 

I get this one ALL the time. Apparently, no one has heard that popular YT channels like Mixiepixie7 get ASKED by AG to do GOTY sneak peek videos . . . or invited to do meetups at the AG stores. It’s a real thing, people.

#5: And those are a thing?

Um . . . yes. Trust me. Google “AG doll blog,” or “AG stopmotion,” and you will get thousands of results.

Can you relate to any of these?

One of the Most Amazing Posts I’ve Ever Read

3,125 people died this last hour. A total of 75,000 people are going to die today. 75,000 people are going to die tomorrow. And the next day. And the day after that. How many of them are going to Heaven? How many of them are going to hell? There is no time to waste. Jesus…

How Much Does AGs in Alaska’s Brother Know About AG?

This post is going to be amazingly awesomely hilarious!!!

Why?

It’s featuring my brother! My two-years-younger, adventurous, trouble-making brother.

This post was inspired by Sam and Loren and Micah (on YouTube). Thanks, guys!

Here we go!!!!

Me: Okay, so, um . . . how many dolls do I have?

Brother: 9.

Me: No, I don’t have nine dolls.

Brother: Okay.

Me: You need to guess again.

Brother: 10.

Me: No.

Brother: 11.

Me: No!

Brother: 8.

Me: Yes! Okay, who was my first doll?

Brother: Crystal.

Me: And who was my most recent doll?

Brother: Tessa.

Me: Ye- wow, you got it right.

Brother: I named her.

Me: You did not name her!

Brother: It was my idea.

Me: It was not your idea. It was your idea to name her after someone from the Michael Vey books. You wanted me to name her Tara!

Brother: And then I said, “How about Tessa?” And you said, “I like Tessa. That works.”

Me: *dramatic pause* That is not what I said. Okay, whatever. Uh, moving on . . . So, what do you think about the new Girl of The Year?

Brother: I don’t know.

Me: You don’t know? What do you think about a doll who likes science?

Brother: That’s . . . awesome.

Me: Do you like science?

Brother: *blah blah blah blah blah ridiculous nonsense I will not write here*

Me: *yells brother’s name here* I can’t put that on my blog! Okay, come up with appropriate responses to these questions. Okay . . . how long have I been doing blogging?

Brother: Two years.

Me: No, my doll blog.

Brother: Okay, one year.

Me: No, less time than that.

Brother: Like, eight months?

Me: No.

Brother: Six?

Me: Yes, six months! Do you read my blog?

Brother: I scroll through it to support you.

Me: Oh, to support me. That’s sweet of you. (Note the sarcasm here.) Which one of my dolls likes gymnastics?

Brother: McKenna.

Me: Okay, um . . .

Brother: The only reasons I know these questions people is because she’s constantly blabbering about them.

Me: *Another dramatic pause* Seriously?

Brother: Yeah.

Me: *loud sigh* Okay, hey, hey, you get back here. I’m not done. Let me think. Um, which doll of mine is the one who has red hair?

Brother: Morgan.

Me: Nooooo, her hair is brown!

Brother: Um, it is . . .  I don’t know.

Me: It’s Emily. Okay, how many times have we been to the AG Store Los Angeles?

Brother: Four times.

Me: Four times? That’s close.

Brother: Five?

Me: No.

Brother: Three?

Me: Yes, three. Let’s see . . . how many of my dolls have their ears pierced?

Brother: Three?

Me: No.

Brother: I don’t know.

Me: Four. Okay, now I’m going to move onto some questions about . . . like, American Girl in general. Who is the current girl of the year? (This was back in 2017.) Not the one that’s about to come out, the current one.

Brother: It is . . . I know it . . . um, um, Lea.

Me: No, that was last year.

Brother: I don’t know.

Me: It’s Gabriela. Let’s see . . . you won’t know that . . .

Brother: No, tell me.

Me: Okay, fine. What was the original American Girl name?

Brother: You told me this one time.

Me: I did?

Brother: Yeah.

Me: You won’t remember. Okay, let’s see . . .

Brother: What was it called????

Me: Pleasant Company. I’ll be right back . . .

Brother: The what now?

Me: Pleasant Company. (Runs to room, returns with AG magazine). Okay, so what is this one called? (Points to doll.)

Brother: That is . . . the one from 1924, or something. Molly.

Me: That’s not Molly, Molly’s from the 40s, and no, this is Samantha, she’s from, like, 1904 or something.

Brother: See, I was on the right track. That was the one I was thinking of.

Me: How old was I when I got Crystal – wait, I can’t put that on my blog.

Brother: Why?

Me: They can’t know how old I am! Yet – maybe later. In the future. Okay, just look at this picture, not the words. Which doll is this?

Brother: The one who likes basketball. Jessie.

Me: No – wait, Jessie? Her name is Julie! That’s pretty close. Yeah, she does like basketball.

Brother: She wanted to be president. In the movie. (He’s talking about the short film AG made about Julie, if you haven’t seen it, it’s on their website.)

Me: Do I have this doll?

Brother: Yeah, you have Kit, but its name is Lindsey.

Me: Yes. But it’s not an “it,” its a “she.” What year was Grace Girl of The Year?

Brother: It was three years ago . . . wait . . . it’s 2017 this year, right?

Me: Yes.

Brother: But it’s going to be 2018 in a few days, right?

Me: No, in like 11 hours.

Brother: Okay, so three years ago it was . . .  2015!

Me: Now, is there anything you would like to tell my wonderful league of followers about dolls, or yourself?

Brother: (pause)

Me: Hello? We have dead air here!

Brother: (Says something I shall not write here.)

Me: Okay, we’re done here. Say bye.

Brother: (Says another thing I shall not write here.)

So . . . that went differently than I expected. But I hope you enjoyed it anyway! See you guys on Thursday!
