Can't focus

Today is one of those days that seems to be going too fast and too slow at the same time. We slept in until I was forced to get out of bed by a knock at the door. Okay, so I wasn't forced to, but I felt it would be rude not to get up, so I did. And it turned out to be a very good thing, because instead of there being anybody at the door, there were two packages. One was our paychecks from the eccentric billionaire company, and the other was a book from TokyoPop. This is good, because we heard back about the new format today, and while we're not ready to give in and follow it just yet, if we do end up giving in, it'll be a heck of a lot easier to get used to the new format with Lagoon Engine than with Hiyokoya. Unless Lagoon Engine has lapsed into its volume 1 text density. Then... well... we'll see if we survive. On the bright side, the thing that would have been the most time consuming was just a miscommunication/misunderstanding.

I was thinking it might be fun to post more literal translations every so often, when we're bored or something, but we do have a lot of time-killers backed up on us, so we'll see if that happens.

I'm having a hard time focusing right now.

We need more icons. Does anybody know of good places to get pictures for those?

We were planning to read today, but Athena's close enough to the end of Harry Potter we wanted to make sure there was plenty of time for her to finish it, and now we're not sure there is. That's the problem with stressful days--we end up wasting a lot of time trying to figure out what we need to do about it.

Today I'm thankful for new Lagoon Engine, digital scales, Scott Weinger being on Scrubs (sure it's just one episode and he didn't really talk, but still), Dave Foley being on Scrubs, and Aladdin and Flik.
