First, a meme! From more_dragoncelt

RULES: List 10 things you're grateful for today. Tag ten other people.Or five. Or two. Or nobody. Just get your head out of your problems and think about what's awesome for 5 minutes!

You could list 10 things every day if you wanted to; this list is just what you think of at this MOMENT. Don't put too much deep thought into it."I'd like to thank the Academy..."

1)I am thankful for Host Club soundtracks, because it's very hard not to be in a good mood with Guilty Beauty Love of Mata Ashita or any of the other songs in your head. On that same note, I'm also thankful for our Law of Ueki CD, Saiyuki CDs, and all the other CDs that make us happy.

2)I am thankful for our job. Our job is awesome, and we were very blessed to get it. And when you're doing something you love, work = play!

3)I am thankful Kingdom Hearts. There are a few things that make me as happy as Kingdom Hearts does, but Kingdom Hearts is always one of the first things that I think of.

4)I am thankful for chocolate covered pretzels. Whoever came up with the idea to cover pretzels in chocolate is a genius.

5)I'm thankful that Celeste bought us manga while she was in San Francisco.

6)I'm thankful for having a roof over my head. This is something that we usually take for granted, but we've been in more than one situation where we weren't sure we would be able to continue having a roof over our heads, so we're very grateful that we have one now.

7)We're thankful that there's always something to be thankful for. I've mentioned this before, but when we tried to come up with the absolute worst scenario ever, there was always something worse that could come up. Like we had trapped under the ruins of your house that collapsed while you were in the middle of a shower, in Siberia, mid-winter, at night, and your insurance doesn't cover it and the only thing you can get to to drink is your own urine (assuming you can free yourself enough to be able to get it to your mouth), and your house is in the middle of nowhere so you don't know when anyone will come to help you, assuming anyone even knows you're there, or cares. And we're like, "Okay, that's pretty bad." But then we realized--boils. And you have rats! And they're eating your face! (It's actually a little therapeutic to play the "It could be worse" game. And you can always be thankful that you're not in that situation.)

8)I'm thankful that we finally managed to get a copy of Atelier Marie & Elie, because it makes translating the manga that much easier. And! we get to hear all the characters' voices! Too bad most of them are girls.

9)I'm thankful for anime conventions. It's nice to have a place to go where everybody knows your name, even if it's actually the name of the character you're cosplaying.

10)I'm thankful for the rainy weather we're having. It's really pretty when the tree outside our window is covered in raindrops. It's kind of like in colder areas when the snow starts to melt off of trees, but then it freezes again so it looks like the tree is covered in little glass balls, only less cold.

And, I'm going to copy more_dragoncelt (Athena says, "What you say is, 'follow her example.'") and tag everyone, because I agree that everybody should do this. I think I am going to count that for my gratitude journal today. Originally I wasn't planning to, but then Celeste came home while I was writing that up and I lost all my concentration. She's very distracting, but at least she's entertaining when she is.
