happyday

Watching anime again

Today we had a visit from the Jehovah's Witnesses. We got those every so often back before the fire, so it kind of made me feel like we were home...I guess, maybe. Anyway, this time one of them commented on my anime shirt, so that was extra nice.

Speaking of anime, now that we're in our own space again, we're pretending we have time to watch it (anime, I mean). Last night we had half an hour to kill before Lux Up Time, so we went to Crunchyroll and watched the first episode of Nisekoi. It was super awesome. You can take my word for it and go watch it right now, knowing only that it's a comedy series, Collapse )

Then this morning we wanted some Saturday morning cartoons, so we watched Nobunaga the Fool, a series that reminds us once again that anyone who holds the historical inaccuracies of the movie Pocahontas against Disney would hate a lot of the stuff that comes out of Japan. This one isn't spoiled as much by knowing the synopsis, Collapse )

In other news, Page showed interest in looking out the window today, so we immediately went over to PetSmart's website and ordered a window perch for her. We would have been even more excited if I hadn't accidentally clicked "confirm" before editing the shipping address. ...Sigh. I had to call customer service to get them to change the address, and the guy told me he'd have to send it to the warehouse and hope for the best. I asked if it would be easier to cancel the order and order it again, but he said it had already been processed! And it was only like five minutes after we made the order! ...Well, we can't blame them for being efficient. Here's hoping it gets here!

We also shopped for lamps online and just got fed up with everything. We'd find a lamp we thought we liked, and all the reviews would say it falls apart blah blah blah, it cut my arm and I needed six stitches blah blah blah, and then we'd check somewhere else and find a good one for a good price, but they don't sell things online so we go to Amazon and it costs three times as much. It's a little frustrating. So we were like, "Eh, we've gone without lamps this long." And then we were in our room reading manga and it started to get dark, and we were like, "...Oh."

Today I'm thankful for getting to watch some awesome new anime, getting to order something for Page that we think she'll like, having time to read manga today, the trip to the store not being too taxing, and us both having finally finished reading Tenshi 1/2 Houteishiki volume four so now we can finally listen to the drama CD that came with it (even though Hidaka-sensei said the content has nothing to do with what's in volume four, and there would be no spoilers).
