Today all day 
4th-Aug-2017 09:19 pm
There's a calendar app on Windows 10 that we use as a schedule for our deadlines, so I'll just put the title of a book that's due, and since it's not a specific event or activity, I don't bother putting in a time for it. Because of that, whenever we hit a due date, the calendar says, for example, "Fire Force today all day." And sometimes, it's not wrong. Today, it was Fire Force all day.

Okay, so it wasn't all day--we took a break to go to the store where we bought a 7-Up cake--but other than that, it was Fire Force all day. We had to watch an episode of Dive! at the end to cool off. I kid; we watched Dive! because we're miraculously caught up on all eight series we're watching this season, and there was a new episode. But I will say that Fire Force is a little extra tough to work on in the summer.

And because we were working on Fire Force all day, we were constantly asking the ether: y'all think comedy is hard? Comedy is the EASY part! Fire Force is a comedy, right? So we'd do a scene that was chock-full of exposition, which I think is pretty high up there on the difficulty scale and usually not very funny, and then there'd be a funny scene, which we would breeze through, and then somebody would say something serious like about how he didn't expect to see somebody there, and our progress would come to a screeching halt. It's kind of ridiculous.

...And when I put it that way, I always have to stop and think, "Wait, are you sure you didn't just breeze through the comedy scene because you were phoning it in?" (Athena responds to my typing that with, "We do NOT phone in comedy.") But when we did the final readthrough, it all seemed pretty funny, so I think it's okay. ...Either that or I'm too loopy to know the difference, or I don't have a good sense of Yuma. I have never been there, after all.

Today I'm thankful for finishing Fire Force, having time to watch an episode of anime afterward, having a 7-Up cake to try, having more Haagen Dazs Belgian chocolate ice cream, and taking a brief glimpse through some of our old photos.

I've had root beer-flavored ice cream, but this is the first I've heard of a 7-Up cake. Does it really taste like 7-Up?

Alas, it does not. It tastes like a vanilla cake with some lemon. But there's an aftertaste that is very much like 7-Up. On the other hand, we got an A&W root beer float cake that seemed to be part of the same series, and that one did not disappoint; it was very root beerish.
