Life's full of tough choices.

I don't know what to post about today! We just finished watching Otome Yokai Zakuro, but I don't have...I don't think I have a whole lot to say. I'm a little annoyed about Daidai, but overall, it was fun. It had a nice balance of action and romance, and Agemaki was sooo cute. And that's about all I have to say about it, I think.

I'm sort of interested in getting the manga, but we're going through another one of our "we don't have room for new manga! RAR!!!" phases. Usually when this happens, we think, "We need to figure out what to do with all our comp copies." We should donate them, but we don't want to. It's funny, because I'm like, "What if we give them away and decide we want to look through them again but it's too late!?" "That's okay; just keep one copy of each!" "But what if there's a fire or something, and those 'one copy's all get destroyed!?" "Well, if you kept all the copies here, then they'd all have been destroyed in the fire." "But!!!" So it's tough.

And it goes on. "But what if we give them to the library, and then our personal copies get destroyed, so we go to the library to revisit the ones we gave away, and find out that the people who checked them out totally shredded them!?" It doesn't help that it looks like the local library already has a lot of the stuff we translated. It doesn't have the books we want to read (although we might be able to get Fox and the Hound through interlibrary loan or something like that), but it does have the ones we want to give away. But maybe that means those titles are popular enough that enough people are reading them that they'd want more?

It's all a moot point if we can't get to the library anyway. ...And the thought of giving them up is still so painful.

Today I'm thankful for Page being extra snuggly today, having a lovely time at the temple last night, the cute episode of The Middle that was on this week, getting to watch Otome Yokai Zakuro, and the chocolate covered pretzel bits we had for a snack today.
