Another Day

We were so not looking forward to FHE tonight, but as it turns out, it was a really good thing we went. First of all, our home teacher actually showed up, which gave us a chance to remind him that he promised to get some catfood for us, the punk. And then when we were talking about our other woes (I had to talk to Mom today; it wasn't pretty), we mentioned how we needed a printer, and it so happens that he has one that he's not using. Why didn't I think to ask him before? Why didn't he realize that our printer was dead when we asked him to print our contracts? The world may never know. But, since we didn't tell him about the new contract policy before, it very easily could have been thought of as a one-time thing.

And then as our FHE activity, we got to go to the nickel arcade and play the American version of DDR. Either it was way more strenuous, or we're really out of shape. But! They had Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo! But sadly, the sound was turned way down, so we didn't get to hear Hoshi-san's beautiful voice. Ah well; we'll just have to pull out the home version.

And then one of the guys there gave us a five-gallon tub of ice cream. Not sure why. It was there, for refreshments or an activity or something, and we're like, "Ooohh, ice cream... Too exhausted to eat..." So the guy said, "You can take it home if you want." And we're like, "Really?" And he's like, "Yeah." And we're still like, "Really?" But we took it anyway. And now it is ours, and if they want it back they'll have to come take it away!

But we won't put up much of a fight, because it's just vanilla. Still, it's good for the soul.

So tonight we're very thankful for people giving us ice cream, DDR and its other incarnations, people letting us cry, extra printers, and Yamino's image song.

  • Those darn sound effects

    Today our work schedule was thwarted by work. There was a sound effect that just refused to be translated. It's the kind of thing that makes me wish…
