happyday

This is the "we're not going to die" dance!

We got an e-mail from our boss at Del Rey today offering us a new title!! Woohooooo! This is especially exciting because it came without our asking if they had anything else that they wouldn't mind letting us translate for them. And when we would think about our future survival (constant supplies of work orders from TokyoPop don't always last), our greatest anxiety was that we'd finish the Del Rey series and they would be done with us. But for now, at least, that would appear to not be the case, hence the "we're not going to die" dance. We could use an icon for that...

It's kind of a mixed feeling, though, because we've been working on so many titles that take forever to translate that we've been kind of thinking, "We're never going to have time for anything ever again!" That is so not true, of course, because obviously here I am updating LiveJournal. Though it does make us wonder if it was really such a good idea to order Harukanaru Toki no Nakade 2 to add to our list of video games to play. But of course that was a good idea. (The hard part was convincing ourselves to wait on a bunch of other Neo Romance games.)

Today I'm thankful for being offered a new title from Del Rey (we haven't signed the contract yet; best not to count chickens), the idea of getting to finally play a Neo Romance game soon, helpful bankers, identity theft protection, and free candy from the apartment management office.
