Workaholism strikes again!

or

Another Day, Another Day

Hmm, I guess that second one doesn't work without the right intonation. It was supposed to be like, "Another day, another dollar," "Another day, another frightening amusement park mishap," etc. But Athena didn't have anything to add to the other day except another day. We actually did hear that second example once. It was a commercial for the news on a day when there was apparently a frightening amusement park mishap. Maybe that comes from living in an area with three fairly big amusement parks.

So anyway, I'd thought the workaholism had subsided when I realized that we really don't work that long before jumping at the chance to play video games, but it seems like any time we're working on a really hard series, we tend to push ourselves harder. I guess it's kind of like, "I'll show you, crazy hard series!!" and kind of like, "But if we don't finish this one, we won't be able to go on to the next one!!" Not to say we want to get it over with (although the "it being hard" part is something I wouldn't mind going away), but that we recently got a work order for +ANIMA, among other fun things to work on in the future.

And so, today we spent a looooong time working. By which I mean we worked an extra hour and a half. But I have a Mimsy on my lap, so it's all good.

Changing the subject, as I've mentioned before, we've been going through the old SARU forums and backing stuff up. It's really just a matter of saving as, but it's a good opportunity to read through the old threads, some of which are really really funny. So now, I think I'll post one of them! Now I have to go decide which one to post... I was thinking a shorter one might be better, but this one probably represents everybody the best. We haven't gotten permission from anyone else to post this, so hopefully it won't be a problem.

Aaaaand that's it for now. There's still two more pages on it, so if you want the rest, feel free to ask. And I guess it only represents three people. Tohru and Hilde show up later, though. Hakkai never did come around to say what color he wanted. Ah well.

Today I'm thankful for defense forces, CDs, package tracking, paper fans, and printer cartridges.
