Not the monologues!

Oh my goodness, today's monthly simulpub chapter was full of monologuing! Aaaaaahh! That's one of the hardest things to translate! ...It actually wasn't that hard this time, possibly because it was done by a long-time veteran manga artist. There were just so many words, though. It took forever!

And then Grawp called and we ended up playing on the Switch for over an hour... "Playing" might be a bit of an overstatement. It started out as playing, with Splatoon, and then he decided he'd rather play Minecraft, and somehow that resulted in Athena being told to stay on survival mode, and waiting around in her house until Grawp told her to do something. Meanwhile, I was busy trying and failing to find out the French dub voice of Tracker from the Paw Patrol.

We did eventually get back to work...and then Grawp managed to call again right as we were getting ready to make dinner. His timing today has been impeccable, I tell you. But this time it was all Splatoon, so we had a good time.

Today I'm thankful for finishing that simulpub chapter, getting to play Splatoon with Grawp, getting to try out some fancy new Splatoon weapons, getting to watch our most quoted episode of Pair of Kings, and getting to sleep in just a little bit tomorrow.
