Random thoughts

First of all, kilerkki posted a really good entry this morning about her reaction to the musical, Children of Eden. We thought it expressed what we believe as member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints better than we could, so we asked for permission to link to it, and she gave it to us! So check it out!

On a completely different note altogether... so we're working on the fanbook (dun dun DUN), right? They had three different votes, and for the top twenty ranks in each vote, they list comments from voters. One comment came from one "Banri-san." Of course, it was in kanji, so it might not actually be "Banri-san," it could be like "Mari-san" or something, but you know most of the Hana to Yume manga artists are fans of the whole magazine and are reading everyone else's work. And of course we know Banri Hidaka is a fan of Fruits Basket, because she designed a costume for Momiji. Anyway, this time, if it's who we think it is, she voted for Machi as her favorite character. It does make me wonder if anybody voted more than once...

I think I had something else to talk about, but I can't remember what it is. Right! We got an e-mail about our column today! We were a little nervous about it, because over half the e-mails about our column seem to be sent to correct us about something (this does nothing to disprove our theory that most people in the anime/manga world just love to show off how smart they are), but this one turned out to be purely supportive! Yay! And it was from a fellow translator, too (which actually does help to disprove our theory)! Since this week's column was about some of the mistakes we've made, it seems like maybe he wanted to help us feel better, which is very appreciated (and also adorable♥). ...Come to think of it, maybe we should respond to that before posting about it on LJ... hmmm...

Today I'm thankful for supportive e-mails, the rainy weather, good posts on our friends list, being a bronze member on the Japanese Square-Enix Members site, and having a CD with the William Tell Overture on it.
