"It's just a mouthful of joy!"

Last night our home teacher called and asked if he could come over, right as I was finishing up the LJ entry I was writing. I think we've gotten way too jumpy lately, because for some reason it made me nervous. Knowing our home teacher, really it could only have been a good reason that he was coming over, and it was! He finally remembered that he said he would bring us food. It seemed like he had raided his mother's pantry or something, but since he brought two new gallons of milk and a box of Honey Bunches of Oats, we're more than happy. It's just so nice to be able to eat cereal again.

This morning I called the Nova Group about rescheduling, and the lady on the other end was very nice and very chipper. We set the alarm for eight to make sure I called before the interview was scheduled to start, and I realized just how early eight o'clock is. I was amazed someone could be so chipper so early in the morning. Thinking about it, though, some people have been awake for three hours by eight o'clock, so really I'm just a lazy bum. Anyway, there was no problem with cancelling our appointment, and there would have been no problem with rescheduling, except that they don't have any openings next Friday, so we have to call our home teacher and see which of the three dates she gave me he can make it on. I was planning to do that after we checked the mail, because if we get a check, we can also ask him to take us to the bank, and then maybe to the grocery store.

Also, we finished watching the second disc of Twelve Kingdoms. We decided to Netflix it, because some of our favorite less famous voice actors seem to pop up in it whenever we're looking to see what else they're in. Also, people seem to keep mentioning it on LJ. It's generally our policy to watch at least three episodes of a series before passing judgment on it (whether or not to keep watching it), and to be honest, I don't know if we would have kept up with this one after three normally. We had a hard time putting up with Youko and Yuka's attitudes, and the only one who seemed to have any sense was Asano, and nobody listened to him, so it was irksome.

But since so many people seem to like it, and we already had volume 2 in our queue, we figured we should watch more to see if it picked up, and now we're glad we did. Youko got a lot better, and we got more interested in the plot. I don't think either of us will ever stop thinking that Rakushun looks like an old woman, though.

It was kind of funny when Youko first met the rat guy, and she's all like, "He's just a rat!" And we're all like, "Yuki! How could you!" (Since Youko and Yuki are both played by Aya Hisakawa.) And then they were traveling together and we were amused because, voice-actor-wise, it was Yuki and Kakeru traveling together. Ah, I guess you had to be there.

So yeah. Sometimes three episodes isn't enough. But in the interest of saving hard drive space, we may keep that rule for a while.

EDIT: Just thought we'd make sure those who weren't aware and care are aware that there will be a new Danny Phantom tonight!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Right now, I'm hanging out with Riku. I'm pretty sure a few people on our friends list know about Riku, but I don't remember if I've explained about Riku on LiveJournal. I'm not sure how interesting it is, so I'll cut it.

Long story short, Riku's a little stuffed snake (by little, we mean about three feet long). He's been hanging out with me all evening because I totally blew him off earlier. Our apartment complex was having a St. Patrick's Day party, and all the fliers say stuff about wearing green. It was then that I realized that the only green in my entire wardrobe is a pair of shorts (for a Final Fantasy: Unlimited Yu costume), a sweatshirt with a green sailor collar (also for the Yu costume), and Eisen's donjiki and sashinuki.

It's a little bit too cold to cosplay, so I was kind of at a loss. Athena suggested taking Riku with me, but I thought that might not be in good taste, since St. Patrick is celebrated for getting all the snakes out of Ireland. So I took Treecko the Pokemon instead. And then the St. Patty's Day quiz they had didn't even mention driving all the snakes out of Ireland! Oy.

And so, to make it up to him, I let Riku sit with me while we watched Avatar and Danny Phantom. And now I've gotten myself started on Avatar. No! Stop! Good girl.

Also, all that talk about Kingdom Hearts has gotten us wanting to play. Again. We might really just break out Chain of Memories this time. We've been holding off on the video games because, since we only play a couple hours a day at the most, and we were hoping to get a lot of work done this month, we weren't convinced we'd finish anything before Kingdom Hearts 2 came out. But the way we keep not being able to work, things are getting iffy. But the Reverse/Rebirth side of CoM is really short, and the awesomest part of the game. Maybe we'll do that.

Anyway, tonight I'm thankful for being able to eat Honey Bunches of Oats, Sora, Riku, green cupcakes, and saltine crackers.
