Wonder, I sometimes do

Name that quote!

So last night, the Relief Society president called asking if I would mind playing the piano for Enrichment tonight. I would be happy to, because I like to play the piano. She also asked if we needed a ride, because if we're not at Enrichment, it's usually due to lack of transportation. This month, one of our visiting teachers had already promised to give us a ride, so I said we would be fine. Athena even saw the visiting teacher write down that she would drive us to Enrichment, after which she said, "Now I'll remember!"

And as you should all know by now (all four of you reading this), I wouldn't be typing this up if our VT had remembered to pick us up. I called her at about 6:47 (she said she'd get us at 6:45, and she's been known to forget before) and the first thing she said when she picked up was not, "Hello?" but, "I'm so sorry; I completely forgot!"

This probably wouldn't have been nearly as upsetting if not for two things. One, we were already angry because of stuff with Mom, and two, we're reeeeeeeally sick of being forgotten. I wonder if we're some kind of walking forgetfulness charms or something, because this happens far far far too often. (Unless, of course, someone wants money or peanut-butter squares.)

I wonder if it's that we're not social enough. Or maybe it's that all we do is translate. Translators tend to be in the background, because really, they're mainly there to make other people's fine work available to more people. Maybe if we wrote fanfiction, or drew fanart... We cosplay though. That should count for something... except that it wouldn't count as far as people here, because so far not many of them are into anime. I would like to point out that this year was the first time we've dressed as Goku and Hakkai at Disneyland. It may be fun to get Hakkai driving the Indiana Jones Jeep, but we have only done it once.

It's weird though, because from what we hear, people do talk about us a lot. And yet they can't seem to actually remember anything about us. And so I wonder. And then I get frustrated because I can't come to any kind of conclusion. And so I come and type up LiveJournal entries. And still I get nowhere.

  • Worn out

    I think we wore ourselves out last week waaaaaaay more than we realized at the time. Or perhaps it wasn't a wearing out so much as a not fueling up…
