The usual

I did start to update yesterday, but our computer decided it didn't want internet anymore, so I had to restart and when I got back to LJ, I tried to restore the saved draft, but it was gone. And it was extra late by that time, because I was chatting with people online while I wrote it, so then I was like, "Ugh, whatever. Forget it." It wasn't really a great entry anyway, because with my divided attention I'm not sure the writing was coherent.

The gist of it is that we've been watching Bring the Funny, and we're pleased that JK Studios has moved on to the third round. What I didn't say, because I didn't have the focus to articulate it, is that while we do like JK Studios and are definitely rooting for them, we don't always like their sketches, so I'm really happy that I think their entries into this contest have both been really funny so far. (Although both sketches have been posted on their YouTube channel, so we saw them before they were on Bring the Funny, and oddly, we didn't think they were quite as funny then. But on Bring the Funny they were both great. I guess some concepts just work better for stage than for cinema.)

As for today, today we finished watching Trollhunters, and we didn't really like the finale. We had to discuss it to put our finger on what it was that bothered us, Collapse )

So that had us feeling quite rarful, which resulted in us saving this week's anime for some other time in favor of watching Miraculous, which we knew would make us feel much happier. We were not disappointed, and I was feeling pretty good about things until I started dredging up my own annoyance at Trollhunters. When will I ever learn? (Not soon, I'm thinking. We're still fully intending to watch 3 Below.)

Today I'm thankful for getting to see the Trollhunter finale, Toby getting to do important things in the final battle (he's our favorite character even without his French dub voice), meeting our work quota today, Miraculous making everything better, and Page liking to sit by our chairs.
