  • Mood:


We ordered CDs last night. It was shocking. For the first time in more than two years, we finally ordered CDs from CD Japan. We couldn't believe it, even though we were the ones doing it. We were also kind of scared, because even though we can totally afford it and still pay rent for at least the next two months, and most likely several after that, it's just been so long that it seems like it might be a trap.

It's actually more along the lines of, "Dude, we got to work on the Shiny New Thing, we're getting a PS3, we finally got to order CDs--so much totally awesome stuff is going on right now! ...wait, is this just stocking up on good stuff now because it's not going to last, and something really, really bad is about to happen...?" So yeah. Just a little scared. But thinking about it, the last three years have not been all that great (which, in the case of 2004, is a euphemism for possibly the worst year of our lives so far; but 2005 and 2006 were definitely better, though rather impoverished), so maybe it's the light at the end of the tunnel?

But after sleeping on it, we're more excited than anything else, especially because we got the shipping confirmation for the PS3 we ordered! Very soon, we will finally get to play Kingdom Hearts again... Er, I mean, we'll get to play the game we need to play for work (ordered it with the PS3! (the special edition was on sale for less than the normal one!)). Yes, it's for work. *nodnod*

The important thing, though, is to be very grateful. So today I'm thankful finally getting to order CDs, having had a steady supply of work so we know we're not going to die anytime soon (at least not from lack of funds getting us kicked out on to the streets and unable to buy food), having so many things to be thankful for, having a job that we both love a lot, and having a Japanese PS3 in the mail.
