Learning the hard way

After completely draining our energy supplies during the week, we were hoping to get plenty of rest today. We did sleep in much later than usual, so our goal wasn't totally unmet, but we were also busier than we would have liked. I wanted to spend the evening relaxing and watching a movie--The Princess and the Frog, which wouldn't necessarily have been so relaxing in and of itself, but we would have been lying down. We've been wanting to rewatch the last decent hand-drawn animated movie Disney did for a while, and we've been seeing Tiana around Frontierland. Then we were talking about a character's dialect with our editor on a certain series, and we all decided that Tiana would be a good speech model for her.

So we decided to pull the movie out of our library and watch it. The problem is all we have for watching Blu-rays is our PS3, which is ten years old and not wireless, and the last time we tried to watch a Blu-ray on it (the second Noragami stage show, followed shortly by Tinker Bell and the Neverbeast because, unable to watch Noragami, we had to decide on something else to do), it wouldn't let us because we needed to do a system update. But because the PS3 is not wireless, and most of our cables got left behind after the fire at our last apartment, we had no way of connecting the PS3 to our internet. And so we tried all manner of ridiculous methods to fix this problem, resulting in a lot more physical exertion than you'd expect, until finally I Googled "ps3 system update" and figured out the very very easy way to upgrade the system with a flash drive. Yes, I do feel silly for not thinking of it sooner.

And by the time we finally got it all done, it was almost bedtime. So we weren't able to watch the movie, but now we're ready for next time! And! if we can ever find the time (lol), we can watch the second Noragami stage play! So that's something to look forward to.

Today I'm thankful for having an upgraded PS3, getting lots of sleep last night, Page coming to help us with our PS3 problems, getting the Ariel fingernail clippers in our YumeTwins box, and the adorable little boy who had to inform us, as we walked by a chihuahua, that there was a dog tied to the tree. He tried to talk to us more, but I had gotten the chihuahua barking, so we couldn't hear much over it. After about a minute, I told the kid, "Well, we have to go to the store, so we'll see you later," and he went, "Okay, bye!" and it was one of the cutest things.
