Do you know what tuna is...?

Today is a day where I think it would be nice to be able to control the weather. It's about a hundred degrees Fahrenheit, and the heat is really getting to us, even with the air conditioning on. It just feels like a hot day, and it's messing with our heads. We were talking about how we were going to sit down and eat some Cheez-its, and Athena said, "But we might have to sit on the other couch," because Mimsy was sitting right in the middle of the couch we normally sit on to eat snacks. What I heard was, "But we might have to skip on the upper couch." And that didn't make any sense at all. (For the curious, my brain interpreted it as passing on using it, not as that funny walk thing called "skipping.")

And the fact that we're finding that to be so incredibly hilarious is perhaps another indication that the heat is getting to us.

So on the one hand, I'm like, "Didn't the weather get the memo that it's September? Can we cut it out with the heat already?" And on the other hand, I figure the weather probably did get the memo and decided to ignore it for one reason or another (maybe something important?), so I think about Pudge the fish and how he controls the weather (supposedly).

We had a nice break-type-thing from work these past two workdays, because Kamichama Karin chu takes hardly any time to translate. It's always so relaxing translating manga that goes quickly. But then, because it goes so quickly, it's over so soon, and it's back to work as usual. The Big Three are looming in the horizon, growing ever closer... And in the meantime, we have some extra reading we need to do, and it turns out we need to do it sooner than expected. And thus VB Rose has to wait again. But we might read it tonight anyway. We'll see how things go.

I keep thinking I ought to talk about Saiyuki Reload 9 reactions on the one hand, and on the other I wonder if anyone would read it... But for the sake of our own reference, Collapse )

Not a whole lot to say, I guess, but if I tried to say more, it would be like, "And the part where this thing happened? It was awesome," over and over again. Although that does remind me of that one part I forgot to mention. Oh well.

Today I'm thankful for having had a semi-break from work, Pudge the weather-controlling fish (he lives in Hawaii, so of course I don't blame him for the hot weather today), not suffering the death of a thousand itches, not ever having had to play Jumanji, and optimistic weather forecasts.
