darkside

Smile that frown away!

Argh, now is a terrible time for LJ to be acting weird! We have too much to talk about! Aaahhhh!! Maybe while we're talking about it, LJ will have time to gather its wits.

Anyway. The huge bummer is that we didn't get to see Tangled last night after all. What we didn't realize is that the tickets weren't tickets, they were passes, which means they give you the right to go, but on a first come first serve basis, and you can only get in if you go super early. If we had realized that (and we did, when Celeste pointed out the possibility, but she didn't think of it until after the first time we called her, and we didn't call her again until it was already too late!), we would have run to the theater and spent the rest of the day there, but alas it was not meant to be. We couldn't even go wait in line, because we had to meet up with the rest of the group to get the passes, and we couldn't get a hold of them to warn them. Sadness.

On the bright side, there's a candy store right by the movie theater, and we got to try honeycombs for the first time. We kept seeing them at candy stores (chocolate covered, of course), and we finally found out what they were at the Fresno fair, but we didn't have any money and we didn't want to bum any off of Mom. Technically, we don't have any money to spare right now, but it wasn't too expensive, and we wanted to get something to take the edge off not getting to see the movie. (And in theory, we should be getting a big check any day now...) I especially wanted to get something for Celeste, because she came and drove us out there for nothing, and she had already been having a bad day. So she also got a bottle of Jelly Belly brand vanilla soda. It was a new thing, and she said it was very good, like an extra vanilla-y cream soda.

We knew there was no point in staying upset about the movie thing (especially since we had already been warned it might happen), but it was hard not to be a little bummed about it. Fortunately, a bunch of stuff happened (okay, two things, but they were big) to turn our frowns upside-down!

First, we got an e-mail from Twitter telling us that Ryoco Fukuyama is following us back! Aaaahhh!! We want to tweet at her with a thank you, but we're not entirely sure what to do. See, we wanted to send her a greeting a long time ago, but we just couldn't figure out what to do about the fact that we're not translating Nosatsu Junkie anymore. It's like, "Hi! We translate your stuff but nobody in America bought it so we don't anymore! But we love you! Tee hee♥" It just doesn't quite work. Now that we're faced with a return follow, Athena's come up with the idea of just saying we translated a few of her comics. Y'know, when we work up the nerve.

The second thing! The second thing!!! Ooohhhhh♥♥♥♥!!! We finally did our for-fun translation of volume fourteen of DN Angel!!! Collapse )

Okay, I think that's enough squeeing. Ah, DN Angel... *contented sigh*

Today I'm thankful for getting to try honeycombs (they were pretty tasty, too!), being followed by Ryoco Fukuyama!, getting to read volume fourteen of DN Angel!, pita chips still being on sale yesterday, and DN Angel being just as squee-inducing as ever.
