The calm before the storm?

Today promises to be an interesting one in many many ways, I think. We finished cleaning up for our guests, Dad and his wife, who will be arriving tonight at some point. That meant spending a lot of time in the spare bedroom, which has been practically abandoned for like a year, and there was a lot of dust and sneezing. But it's all better now, except for all the extra stuff Celeste left behind when she moved out. Punk.

Now we have some hours to relax, which is something I think we might really need, because the drama has already begun and nobody's even here yet. Collapse )

In happier news, we finally got our comp copies of Ace Attorney manga yesterday! Just in time to show it to everyone! And have them be completely apathetic!! Woohoo!!!

Actually, they probably won't be completely apathetic. Dad might even read it! But he hasn't played the games, so it doesn't mean as much. But we do have a bunch of other comp manga we could let him read. See, Dad is like the one person in our family other than us who reads the manga we translate. Well, sort of. He'll flip through it in the bookstore, and he's read a few things, but it's expensive and he's not exactly in the best of financial circumstances, so he doesn't buy anything. But we appreciate it anyway.

We also happened to get our domestic Host Club DVDs today. The day people we can force to watch it are set to arrive. It's almost like fate or something, since technically the DVDs aren't even out yet. But on the other hand, I'm not sure Dad would like Host Club that much. It's all so bittersweet. But we do get to force him to watch Meet the Robinsons, so it should all be pretty fun anyway.

Today I'm thankful for finally getting that Ace Attorney manga, currently being Michiru's best best friend (here's hoping it lasts!), getting Host Club DVDs, being done cleaning for the day, and getting to see people we haven't seen in a long time even if it's really super stressful because we're not used to dealing with people because we're such recluses. We definitely need more training.
