And that just goes to show that my rambling skills have not entirely died. Yay!
I think the problem is I clam up when I'm nervous, and we've been working on stuff that makes me nervous. Like the podcast. It's a really fun idea and we're excited about it, but it's out of the ordinary, so it makes me nervous. It's so much easier to just fill our translation quota and then go play video games. Of course, that doesn't give me much to write about either. I need to redevelop my fangirling skills. Then I'd have plenty to write about. But then I might also bore some people quicker. Of course the simple solution to that would be for them to go check out whatever it is I'm fangirling about, and then they can be fans too! And then we'll be a big happy fan community! Yay!
And I think I'm not thinking properly today. It's raining. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but it is pretty. We don't get a whole lot of rain in Fresno. It's nice to have the sun shining, but if it's shining all the time, it can be monotonous and stuff. It's like Lehi says, there must be opposition in all things. You can't appreciate the sunny days if you don't know what it's like to have rainy days, and you won't appreciate rain until you've had lots and lots and lots of days without it.
I like rambling, but I think it might be time to go read some manga, or maybe have a snack.
Today I'm thankful for the lovely rainy weather, walking into a seemingly empty room and suddenly seeing a kitty pop their head over the blankets, getting to stake conference this morning, last night's Sasuke/Ninja Warrior mini marathon, and not living in a time where I need the kind of skills you need to make it through the Sasuke obstacle courses. Although I guess if I did live in a time like that, I would have those skills, because I'd need them. Or I'd be dead, Athena points out.
Yup. Today is a rambling day.
Oh! And since I know at least umadoshi will be interested, here's a link to parkcooper's interview with Jake Forbes, former senior editor at TokyoPop and author of TokyoPop's Return to Labyrinth series.
