Beware of self-fulfilling icons

The danger of making whiny icons is that then life sometimes likes to give you reasons to use them. We made the icon I'm using now a long time ago to use for whining, but we didn't think it would be an issue, because most of our whining is just playful anyway. In fact, I was going to use it to whine about only getting two comments on our other new icon, but I wouldn't have meant much by it (though we are very thankful to the two who did comment!). But this one is one of the first ones we made when we went on an icon-making spree (most of them were Host Club; go figure), so it's been waiting to be used for a looooooong time.

So anyway, today I'm sick. Maybe "was" sick, since I'm feeling a lot better now, but things were looking pretty iffy for a while. We wanted to get this translation turned in today and I was having a really hard time focusing. But I said a prayer, and the sickness reached a climax just before lunch, and, as I mentioned before, now I'm feeling much better. I really think it has something to do with air pressure changes and my sinuses being stuffed up, so I wonder if we need to move somewhere with different allergens. Or maybe I just need to exercise more.

What else was I going to talk about today? ...I don't think I really had anything. Oh right. We beat Revenant Wings last night. The scene before the final final battle was pretty awesome. We're still a little miffed that the last battle was so hard even after we'd done all their crazy sidequesting, but we ended up not having to go off to level up some more, so I guess we ought to forgive them.

Today I'm thankful for feeling a lot better, finding Oreo in the little house on the cat tree today, the very likely possibility of getting this translation in today (or at least first thing tomorrow) after all, having chocolate pretzels, and Wikipedia.
