Then we went to the office and it was closed. Supposedly it will be open again in about three minutes. In the meantime, we're listening to Anubis's song again. (Actually, it went like this: I typed "In the meantime," and Athena said, "We could listen to Anubis's song," and I thought that was a great idea, so here we are.) Maybe we'll start watching the anime today.
Before that, we wanted to do something mildly productive, so we tried our hand at translating a bit of poetry. It's pretty hard! Fortunately, we have several books to help us out, including one on classical Japanese (which is very different from modern Japanese), and a book on tanka to tell us which words are pillow words, which words are pivot words, etc. etc. It's still really hard to get all the nuances right, especially when you're dealing with poetry masters.
...So I'm listening to this song and thinking, "Why aren't you in Chihayafuru?" Maybe there will be a third season...
Today I'm thankful for kittens, getting started on our little side project, Chex Mix being on sale yesterday, having envelopes we could use to send our taxes in, and being able to print postage directly onto those envelopes.
