Odds and ends

Today has been a day of odd jobs. Tomorrow is allegedly GameStop Expo, so we had to get our costumes ready. I was glad to know that our sewing machine still works. We were kind of out of money until just recently, so we weren't able to make new costumes, but it's been a while since we've worn our Kingdom Hearts Donald and Goofy costumes, and they tend to be fairly popular, so it should be fun wearing them again.

But I needed the sewing machine because the last time we wore those costumes, we were helping out with a haunted house thing, and I was hiding in a wooden crate (to jump out and scare people). The wooden crate had some sharp pointy things in it, and at one point I stopped being careful and tore my costume. Boo. It's mostly fixed now.

We also went to the store to buy food. Thinking of toppings for our angel food cake, we looked at the frozen fruit and thought, "Yeah, it might be good to buy some of this stuff some time." And then we decided to just get chocolate instead. We did also consider the possibility of making a glaze, so we looked at the extracts. They had vanilla, almond, orange, lemon, mint, imitation maple, and anise. We almost bought the anise extract because we've heard of anise, but only in the sense of "there's a thing called anise." We don't know anything else about it, except that it shows up in a lot of home remedies, like it's good for allergies or something. So we wanted to know more about it, but not enough to spend five dollars for something we might hate. Does anybody else know anything about it?

Anyway, I remembered last night that we've been thinking of posting about the manga we translate when it comes out. Y'know, like when everyone can actually go read it. And we were especially thinking about doing that with Noragami, and now it's been out for a week! But I'm kind of too distracted right now to write a whole post about Noragami, so I'm really only posting this as a reminder to myself. So maybe Thursday or Friday!

Today I'm thankful for the sewing machine working, having ingredients for chocolate fondue, having a cake and some pretzels to eat with the chocolate fondue (we also thought about buying peanut butter Oreos, but by then we were like, "Eh, we've spent enough money."), having plans to go to a convention that will allegedly happen tomorrow, and also having Klondike bars.
