Oh the possibilities...

One of the blessings and curses of having a fictitious business is that everybody wants to let you in on their promotional offers. You especially get a lot of business credit card offers, which make excellent cat toys (assuming your fingers are nimble enough--the envelopes aren't always long enough to keep your hands safely away from the cats' claws). The worst is when you get phone calls for things like credit card machines. Our business is fictitious, and we don't need to accept credit cards, so we don't need a credit card machine. Though come to think of it, if we started up a service of something like translating fanletters from American anime fans to seiyuu, manga artists, etc.... We'll have to think about that one.

Anyway, Six Flags Magic Mountain has recently discovered our listing, so now we have a bunch of two-for-one coupons to hand out to our hardworking employees! We're not sure if we'd even call ourselves hardworking employees, but it was a nice gesture. I think their motive is to get us to have a company picnic (minimum 100 people) over there, which I don't think is going to happen because I don't know if we even know 100 people... though we might could have a ward picnic... Hm...

Anyway, the point is we need to figure out how to use all these coupons to the greatest advantage. We're not huge roller coaster fans, and we like the atmosphere of Disneyland better, so usually when we go down south for amusement parks, Disneyland is The One. But it could still be fun to take some people down there, maybe make better friends with some people in the ward. Or maybe we could pawn them off on someone in exchange for a favor. The possibilities are endless! We could even make a hamster habitation with them! Though that would be kind of a waste, since we don't have a hamster.

Man, I wanna go to Disneyland.

Today I'm thankful for Magic Mountain coupons, actually finishing translating a chapter today (we didn't think it would happen), creative uses for things, having more of those Nestle's Crunch Dark Chocolate Stixx (even though the packaging is probably horrible for the environment--but they're sooooo goooooood!!!!), and getting the tape blackhope sent us!
