Lulling myself to sleep at 12 midnight

I can actually get myself to sleep right now without having to do this, but I’ve fallen asleep so many times during the day, and I’m very close to falling asleep in front of the keyboard, as it stands.

In a certain website I’ve joined, there is this Custom Clothing feature in the site, where, just as you’ve guessed it, anyone can submit their own custom clothing item to the site, while paying the equivalent of US$50, in order to have ten copies of said item. I will take at least one hour to explain the ins and outs of the system, so I might save that for another time. The most amount of custom clothing items I’ve owned at any given point (mostly with credits I’ve earned on site, only some from money I get from commissions) is a little over 160, but I’ve since been able to trim that number, through trades, resales (at the same price, or at a loss, even if I know I can charge more), or sending them to other users.

I currently have a little over 100 of these items in my account, at the time of writing. Here’s where the real “entertainment” comes in. I want to see how many of these items are private (i.e. custom clothing items that are not publicly released to the rest of the userbase.) As anyone would expect from a system that allows for the creation of special and unique items, a lot of on and off-site drama occur over these private items. Yes, it’s not just MMORPGs which have wars and drama over pixels, of all things! I’m only doing this out of morbid curiosity, because someone had told me that I had too many of these items, but exactly how many is too many? Below is my full list of items; items in italicized bold are private items:

  • 4x: Kalachuchi Wrapped Shawl (birthday gifts from my friends, originally had 6 copies of both, but I gave 2 to friends)
  • 5x: Kalachuchi Scented Traditional Skirt (birthday gifts from my friends, complementing the previous item)
  • 4x: Luzon Bleeding Heart Pigeon

That’s just 29 (counting duplicates that are not “mine”) out of the 111 items I’ve listed here — it’s not like half of the items I have are private in status. I still have other items I have not listed, but they have shop prices, which is why they don’t appear on the easier-to-track list, and therefore have to be checked manually. Now that my curiosity has been satisfied, I will be turning in for the night.
