I can't believe there's a new Danny Phantom tonight

I feel like it's been so long. And now, finally there will be a new one. I'd be excited except that I'm exhausted for some reason. I'm sore all over and I'm not quite sure why. I think it has something to do with scrubbing the bathtub yesterday.

Anyway, today was a day for non-translating productivity. We just finished a book yesterday, and our next assignment will probably go pretty fast, so we thought it would be a good day to write to people. Unfortunately, writing to people is something that always takes us way longer than it should, so we've only got one e-mail sent. In fact, I don't know if any more will get sent today, but at least we got started, and I feel like we made a lot of progress. And we have the whole weekend!

We watched more Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. That show, man. The last episode was really, really scary, so of course we were afraid for our lives watching this episode. And of course, after the opening sequence (before which they showed a scary blood-splattery scene), nothing scary happened. And then the sequence ends, and they show these characters, and we're like, "Wha...? But weren't you...?" We think they're using non-linear narration. This show really messes with your head. I really hope they explain something as it goes on, or at least at the end, because it's one thing to confuse the viewers, but another to leave them that way. I used to like the opening song, but today it sounded creepier than usual. I bet it would be fun to sing, though.

Oh! And they introduced a set of twins! That could make for some fun and creepy cosplay. Except it would be cute cosplay. It would only be creepy to those who've seen the series.

And now I'm feeling very unmotivated. Oh well, I'll get over it. Wow, I still can't believe there's a new Danny Phantom tonight. Anyway, today I'm thankful for the Fenrir keychain, the Slapshot ability, e-mail, there being a new Danny Phantom tonight, and kitties sitting on luggage.
