sora

I chose this icon because it has a Sora in it.

Last night Mom called and asked if we'd finished reading Harry Potter. We haven't yet, because we're easily distracted by anime and video games, and work of course, so she was disappointed. As it turns out, she and Steve had made a bet and she had just lost. The annoying thing about this is that Steve won a bet based on guessing our behavior, and that's just not right! Not right, I say! I guess it's good that Mom had faith in us, though. So now I'm torn between wanting to hurry and finish it so as not to disappoint her and ignoring the whole thing because it's pretty dumb anyway. We were sort of planning on maybe reading more Harry Potter today (well, Athena would read Harry Potter and I would read Kieli). We might still do that.

But we started out the day by finishing watching Kaleido Star! Yay!

One thing I wanted to mention that I don't think is a spoiler is that apparently Layla Hamilton is the Kaleido Star equivalent of Carter-san. Carter-san is a character in the videos we watched in Japanese class, and apparently everyone was in love with him, except for the one couple that was in love with each other, and the evil taxi driver. Maybe you had to be there.

Today I'm thankful for video games in which you can bring characters back to life, getting to see all of Kaleido Star (except for the Layla OVA; maybe someday), Marion and Jonathan having a duet, having time to do things like watch Kaleido Star and read Harry Potter today, and DVD technology.
