Surprise visit

We did a little bit of work today, but we were thwarted first by Gaston calling, which led to an hour-and-a-half phone conversation, and second by the realization that the under-the-weather-ness we had been blaming on allergies might actually be a legit cold or something. So we finished what needed to get done today (some bonus material for the print tankobon of a simulpub series), and then we spent the rest of the day relaxing. We watched three episodes of Miraculous, and the more I think about all of them, the more I love them, so I do want to write about them, but!

Gaston came by at about nine and brought us chicken, so we hung out and chatted while we all ate our dinners. It was great on many levels, because we got to spend time with a friend, we got some fresh air, and we had been talking earlier about how chicken noodle soup is like the cold cure-all and we'd had past for our usual dinner but without chicken, so now we had chicken! And I think we are both feeling much better. Not that we were feeling super terrible, just enough to be like uuuuuugh.

Still, just to be safe, we're going to take tomorrow off. ...Except to finish up the bonus material for the other tankobon we need to translate bonus material for.

Today I'm thankful for getting to spend time with a friend, getting some fresh air, getting to eat some chicken, getting to watch Miraculous, and getting to play a teeny tiny bit of Skyward Sword. (That's the main thing on the agenda tomorrow.)
