Delivered

Well, today is a day of being very grateful to delivery people who are willing to go the extra mile. Turns out the reason we'd been waiting so long for books is that our address is easy to write down incorrectly. The guy who delivered our package today was willing to look at the address and, realizing that the address on the package didn't exist, figure out what address it might be that really did exist. And so he found us and we can finally get started on our new assignment! Yay!

We also had to send an email to our editor in the hopes of preventing future mix-ups. Today's delivery guy told us that any other delivery guy would have seen that the address didn't exist and decided that the package was undeliverable. Sigh.

But since we had a chapter of UQ Holder! to translate today (which took extra long because Akamatsu had to go and include a map of the Tokyo area), and I have a stake Primary thing to go to this evening (that I have to go to early because the person driving me is in charge of setting up), we decided we didn't have a satisfactory chunk of time with which to get started on the new assignment, so instead, we came to LiveJournal to tell everyone not to worry, the Kamigami no Asobi game is soooo much better than the anime.

Okay, I think I'm done ranting now. Except to say that we wish the translator had used pixie for Yousei-san instead of fairy. It sounds cuter, and Yui is Tinkerbell.

Today I'm thankful for wonderful delivery guys who go the extra mile, finally having the book we were waiting for, getting to see the KamiAso anime, getting to translate another fun chapter of UQ Holder!, and the Easter egg hunt going on at Kingdom Hearts [chi].
