Technically, it's still a holiday today, but we decided to make it a work day because not only do we have notice that Gaston will be dropping by for a day at Disneyland sometime this week, but there's also a very slight possibility that our friend Kyoya will be doing the same. Possibly on the same day, which would work out splendidly. Actually, our next deadline isn't for two weeks, but things do have a habit of cropping up. And besides, we were eager to get started on one of our new titles! So we did that today, and it was kind enough to let us finish the first draft without working overtime! Woohoo!
In other news, in addition to the people who have already told us we need to watch Yuri on Ice through to the end, we just had another friend on Facebook tell us the same thing. I kind of feel like this series is like Frozen in that there's no escaping it... Us and things about ice, man. Anyway, that being the case, I'm seriously contemplating watching it so we can have a more informed opinion of it and not have to worry about it any more. But there's just this thing...
See, when we were talking about it on Facebook, we were doing our best to be cordial and not go out of our way to say, "Yeah, we just don't like it." She was excited and we didn't want to spoil her fun. We're happy to let people be excited about it; we just don't want them to insist that we like it, too. But if we were to watch it after all this pestering, I feel like I would feel the need to come here to our LJ and post our brutally honest opinion about it. I don't know; maybe after the third episode, it would get interesting to us, and then our brutally honest opinion wouldn't be a problem for anybody. We might actually like it if we give it more of a chance.
...So I guess what I'm wondering is if anyone would be offended if we did come along and end up posting negative reviews of it? Maybe that question is super self-important. I don't know. We actually have some time to watch it today...assuming we don't want to watch the rest of Bungo Stray Dogs or Occultic;Nine instead. Or do any of the myriad other things we have to do. And if we did watch Yuri on Ice, should we start where we left off, or rewatch the first three episodes? I know twelve episodes isn't that big of a time investment, but we already didn't care for those episodes. But if I want a more informed opinion of them, I'd have to retrieve them from my memory somehow, but then if I still didn't like them, I'd like them even less (which, by the way, is kind of what happened with Frozen; at first, we just didn't care for it, but then it was super popular, so we watched it again hoping to figure out what it was everybody saw in it, and then we legitimately disliked it).
...And maybe this is super self-important, and we should just go watch those other nine episodes and keep it all to ourselves, but at least be confident that we gave it the best chance we could. I don't know.
Today I'm thankful for getting to work on an intriguing new series, finishing the first draft, remembering that rent is due, the delicious chocolate chip pudding ring cake we've been eating today, and not having to work overtime today.
