Grinding stone

Back to the grindstone today. We thought about taking the day off to play Persona 3. If we're going to translate the Persona Q manga, we need to be familiar with the Persona 3 and 4 characters, after all. But then we got files. And there were technical difficulties and we couldn't work on the files today...so we decided to work on Missions of Love instead. It was fun, though. We really love that series. And Akira's done being incredibly stupid, which helps.

We also got! a large package! Tadah! We were on Bookwatch, but there were technical difficulties, so it lasted longer than usual. But resolution of the technical difficulties may or may not be why we also got a backlog of comp copies! Volumes four through six of Say I Love You!. I'm mostly happy to have volume four, because I really, really like the color scheme on the cover. And volume four probably has the most of Kai. Speaking of Kai, though, I don't know about him. See...we're kind of...we kind of hate everything, you know? And especially everyone.

Did we mention that? We took a quiz on Facebook, "what mental disorder do you kind of have?" And the result was misanthropy, and we were like, "A-yup." I feel like we've mentioned it, but maybe we haven't.

...I think we're getting off track. What I think we mean to say is, there are a lot of people who love Disney who seem to miss the point. For example, people who cosplay Sora--the most "I'm gonna be best friends with everybody in the whole wide millions of worlds!" guy you'll ever meet--who, when we're dressed as Donald and Goofy--two of Sora's bestest buds--refuse to share the tree that they're climbing. I'm really not bitter about that; it's just an example of someone who misses the point. Kai seems to be a little bit like that. I mean, how can you love Disneyland, the happiest most friendliest place on earth, and be all, "I gotta get revenge!"?

But he got over that, maybe because Mei helped him stop missing the point. I'm not even sure where I'm going with this. It's like I said: I don't know. Maybe it's just that we're tired, and it's making us bitter and not like things. Speaking of missing the point of Disney. I'm gonna stop talking now.

Today I'm thankful for getting to have chocolate chip cookies yesterday, getting to work on Missions of Love today, getting the books we were waiting for, getting some comp copies, and Page enjoying her heated cat bed on this cooler than it has been day.
