When we walked into the Jamba Juice last night, one of the first things I noticed was a sign that said, "Clovis[that's the town we're in], welcome to Jamba Juice." My first reaction was to be like, "Oh like you're that cool to act like you're some different world." And my second reaction was that, yeah, actually, it kind of was. Plus it's kind of fun to pretend you're in a different world. I really should stop being so argumentative.
And then we got our Jamba Juice (Athena and I split a Strawberry...something something with "surf" in it. It had pineapple and lime and strawberries and maybe something else), and we realized that this is The Way to eat fruit. Smashed up and blended so the only way you can tell it was fruit at all is from the flavor, and we can pretend that's artificial if we want. Really, we have nothing against natural flavors, though; it's the textures that cause problems. But when you smash it all up, it's like an icee that doesn't melt as fast. It's perfect! If we had money and transportation, we'd totally get Jamba Juice all the time, and then we'd be Super Healthy! Yeah!
Oh! And we totally called it! The Reload OVA is going to be the burial stuff! Kazuya Minekura mentioned on her diary that she thinks she's the only one who will be happy that they're doing the Ukoku chapter. We're actually really happy about it because Koumyou is awesome in that chapter. I'm also curious to see if they'll get someone other than Houchu Ohtsuka to play Ken'yuu. I would be amused if Takeshi Kusao does it, since he's Kougaiji, who doesn't show up much anymore, and Kusao-san seems to love being in Saiyuki a lot.
Also, we were working on Lagoon Engine today (it's like a breath of fresh air to translate something by Yukiru Sugisaki after doing something as text-heavy as CLAMP no Kiseki, which is what we did while waiting for a new deadline), and we put in Shunichi Miyamoto's "Saigo no Kiss" single to listen to. I keep forgetting how pretty that song is. Maybe one of these days we'll get his album and anything else that's come out of his that we haven't been able to afford. Someday...
Tonight I'm thankful for Jamba Juice, pineapples, limes, PayDay Chocolate Avalanche bars, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Chex Mix.
