"All I wanted to do was date Mori-sempai!"

That was Athena's comment on why our day off today wasn't as day-off-ish as we would have liked. It's a kind of funny story, really. We started off the day by playing the Host Club game. We're over halfway through Mori's story, which is the last one until we have them all, so we thought we could at least finish Chapter 4 before lunch. But at about 12:30, the phone rang. I actually thought about not picking it up, but I just couldn't do it, so I answered. It was our insurance agent-in-training. Apparently they were trying to put together Athena's insurance packet, but the guys wouldn't put it through because our names are so similar (and everything else is exactly the same) that they thought they were registering the same person twice.

So now they need us to fax them copies of our social security cards so they can prove there's actually two of us. Only problem: we don't have our social security cards. Or rather, we should have them. Somewhere. Theoretically. Hopefully. But we have no idea where that somewhere is. So we looked in all the places we could think of that have recordy type things, except for the boxes in Celeste's room which are kind of hard to get to anyway. Nothing. So I called Mom and she knows she doesn't have them because she went through the box where she keeps all that stuff like five times when Sarah lost hers. But that's okay, we'll just call and ask if we can fax copies of our California ID instead. That all was fine, so we went to the office to have them make the copy and fax them off. And that's where we had adventures in copying! Yay! The copier was kind of being wacky, so we got to see more of the inside of a copy machine than we've ever seen before! That was actually kind of neat. But then the fax on the other end wasn't responding, so we had to come allllll the way back to our apartment and call the agent-in-training again. She gave us another number to try, and finally it worked and now it's all taken care of and we don't have to worry about that. Yay!

But by that time, it was time for lunch, so no more dating Mori-sempai. Because instead, we had planned to start watching Kaleido Star: New Wings after lunch today! Collapse )

So yeah. There's actually a lot of not-awesome, but the kind of not-awesome that makes you need to watch so you can see it get what's coming to it. Or, as is more likely to be the case based on the director of this show, change from not-awesome to awesome. Or at least okay. And of course there's awesome, too. We were almost tempted to take the rest of the week off and finish watching it instead, but we're on Nosatsu Junkie next, so that would probably be a Bad idea.

Today I'm thankful for Ken Robbins, finally getting to see the second half of Kaleido Star, insurance companies that look out for us enough to make sure we're not being charged double, neko-ken (no relation to Ken Robbins), and the yumminess of those chocolate-covered pretzels we just had.
