Day off.

We decided to take the day off today. It wasn't an entirely difficult decision, since we were all like, "We need to stop being so tired all the time!" and since we still don't have the books for our next Kodansha project. Last week, we worked on other stuff in the meantime, and we'll probably do the same this week--just not today.

And so! today we have done nothing! ...except watch an episode of Star Trek and read some manga. Wow, time flies when you're not doing anything. Except that it really doesn't, so I guess that just goes to show how much we needed to relax.

In the meantime, we're starting to get close to getting serious about making costumes for Anime Expo. We're thinking Mion and Shion from Higurashi and Iris and Dahlia from Ace Attorney. Another set we think would be super awesome would be Chip and Dale from Kingdom Hearts, but that would require us to get some souvenir hats from Disneyland, which would A)require enough money to go to Disneyland, and B)require enough money on top of that to buy two souvenir hats. (Actually, it would only require us to get to Downtown Disney, because they'd probably have the hats at the World of Disney Store, but it would be so hard to be at Downtown Disney and not be able to go inside the park.) But the costumes would be soooooooooooooooooooo adorable. Whimper. We'll figure something out. Or we'll just not make the costumes. We'll see.

Anyway. Oreo ate some real catfood today, so we're a little happy. But then he left it for the non-catfood turkey. Ah well, at least we're making progress.

Today I'm thankful for having the day off, hamburger biscuits, Oreo eating some catfood, costume daydreams, and having lots of time for video games today.
