The Parent Trap

We were optimistic about finishing work today and getting to take tomorrow off, but this translation is taking longer than we'd hoped (not longer than planned, fortunately), so we'll still be working tomorrow. Oh my goodness, the puns in this book.

In the meantime(?), the whole prestige thing from yesterday had me thinking about people's tendency to make a hierarchy out of everything, which reminded me about our "twins in the media" thing, which led us to watch The Parent Trap last night. (And it turned out to be a longer movie than we expected, so we were up later than planned, and now we're tired again. That might be part of why we decided to call it a day instead of trying to finish the translation we're working on, even though we made it about 80% of the way through the edit all in one day.)

Today I'm thankful for being done with work for today, making good progress despite a disheartening setback toward the beginning, tres leches brigadeiros ice cream, somehow finding ways to deal with those puns, and the pretty flowers outside our apartment.
