We just finished our latest translation and we don't have another deadline for two weeks! And it's for a series that historically (three out of three volumes) hasn't taken us more than three days total to translate! That means we are taking the rest of the week off! (Except probably to work on UQ Holder.) I think the general plan is to catch up on sleep and video games, and maybe see Tomorrowland and the new World of Color. Normally we probably wouldn't bother with that last one, but Kimee asked us to report to her on it, and we like to feel important.

Speaking of work, though, we realize that we haven't once mentioned that we're translating First Love Monster for Yen Press. It's a zany love comedy, and that's all I'm going to say about it right now. Also! we just found out from Facebook that Say I Love You 8 hit bookstore shelves today. Is that early? It's only a week after the latest My Little Monster. But the point is, we're a little excited about it, because that's the first book we wrote a review for! Tadah!

Anyway, we were watching Danny Phantom last night (as usual), and we got to the episode entitled Beauty Marked. So if you don't want to read another post about how people don't understand Disney princesses, then this is not the post for you! On the other hand, I've also been thinking, in relation to this episode, about how people seem to judge things (like Disney princesses) based on the past and not the present, and how we can never make progress if people refuse to acknowledge the progress that has already been made, so maybe ranting about a nine-year-old episode of Danny Phantom isn't going to help anything, but I do feel like people are still making the same claims about princesses even today, so I'm going to rant about it anyway.

Today I'm thankful for it being time for a vacation!!!, Disney princess movies, the delicious chocolate cake we got from Bread Day, still having more cake left, and did I mention we're taking a vacation?
