Disney shopping

We finished work early today! Woohoo! We would have had the whole afternoon free, but we decided to index names (which I guess counts as free time, come to think of it, but it's not what we usually think of when we think of spending our free time), and this time they had batches of Japanese names to index! We knew it would be a bad idea, because it's nearly impossible to figure out what a Japanese name is based solely on the kanji, but we decided to go for it anyway! And, not surprisingly, it took forever. But it was a neat experience.

And the selfish shopping spree continues, as RightStuf! sends us newsletters offering the entire DVD set of Petite Princess Yucie for just $10. We've been wanting a copy of that series for years! It's really cute, about a girl who's seventeen but hasn't aged past ten, and it's really starting to get on her nerves. And then she joins a princess school, where there are four other girls like her! And something about being the best princess will get them the right to make a wish and finally age properly. I don't remember; we saw it a long time ago. It's in exactly the kind of fairy tale princess setting that makes us squee. Eee!

And then we got all of the Maid Sama! anime to go with it. And a blind box item to make us eligible for free shipping! I can't wait to see what it is!

Today I'm thankful for shiny Rapunzel books, Disney Apples to Apples, long-wished-for series being on sale at RightStuf!, getting to see pretty German dresses, and Oreo feeling better.
