Yar!!

Yar, I don't like blogging lately. I think it's a phase. One of those, "It's not like anybody cares, and I'm not even amusing to myself, so what's the point?" kind of phases. Creative thinking powers have been so low that the other day when I went visiting teaching, our potential trip to Japan got brought up, and the person I was visiting teaching said, "My brother is going to die!" And I was like, "Oh no! Is he sick!?" It took me a while to figure out that she meant that metaphorically, out of jealousy. Or maybe she meant it hyperbolically, as Athena suggests. Whatever the type of figure of speech, I didn't get it. Figuratively. That one definitely applies.

I think the Japan trip might be part of the blogging problem. I mean, yeah, it's a little nerve-wracking not to know, but we figure we'll know when we need to, and in the meantime, it's just business as usual. That's not the problem. The problem is someone told us that he keeps checking our journal to find the big announcement, but it's always just the same old bland stuff we do every day. It kind of makes me feel like nobody cares about anything that's going on except that. And that's okay--this is just supposed to be a journal, with the potential added bonus of getting to talk about the entries. If people are entertained, that's great, but it's not supposed to be the main purpose... but that doesn't mean it doesn't bother me.

I'm sorry for being boring! (But I'm not looking for anyone to come say, "I don't think you're boring!", because now it'll sound forced.) And there's still no news about Japan! I'm not going to apologize for that one, though, because there's not much I can do about it. We'll e-mail the agent next week, probably, if we don't hear anything, but we suspect he'll tell us he hasn't heard anything. Still, we might be able to find out if we can go see Kyoya at Disneyland when he's visiting later this month. Y'know, assuming we get paid enough by then. We still have two weeks.

Other than my being all rar at LJ for no reason, today's been really great, though. We went to the temple with Leia, came home to find out that Oreo had eaten (he's still being finicky, though...), watched some anime, read some manga... Good times.

Today I'm thankful for getting to go to the temple today, the super yummy Reese's crispy crunchy bars we just had for dessert, getting to watch some Haruka with Leia, fun made-up Zizzlinger scenarios, and having a little extra time for video games tonight.
