Today we received some potentially dangerous (for our work schedule) news. CD Japan has shipped our order, and soon we will have Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMix. We even splurged on faster shipping because it's Kingdom Hearts. I mean, sure we've already played the game four or five or eight times, but we've only played through Birth by Sleep twice...if you don't count playing through as each character as a separate play-through. If you do, we've played it six times, but that hardly counts, and we never did manage to beat the nigh-impossible boss from Final Mix. We gave up on it when we realized there probably wasn't going to be a new bonus movie, and we didn't want to spend another hundred hours of our lives trying to beat another nearly unbeatable boss...until the next re-release. Seriously, I have to shake my head at our determination to spend hours upon hours on these little sidequests.
Anyway! we also got the notice from FedEx, indicating that the game is estimated to be here by ten-thirty tomorrow morning! We were hoping to take a day off to play when it arrived, and right now our schedule is such that that may or may not be feasible! We just finished our first draft of Missions of Love 11, which means we're inbetween things (sort of; I mean, we're still in the middle of Missions, but inbetween drafts, and they say it's good to let a draft sit for a while before changing it), but! we're likely to have a UQ Holder! chapter to translate tomorrow. Also, we have two projects that will probably demand that we drop everything and devote all our time to them as soon as we hear the word. So now it's a race!
In the meantime, we're reminded of how very much we would like to read the next volume of Missions of Love.
Also, I have a short story from Disneyland that I forgot to tell yesterday. We were on our way to Space Mountain when we spotted a gentleman in a red t-shirt that had a picture of Gaston on it and said, "This is the day your dreams come true." Of course our friend Gaston had to know where this shirt came from, so we stopped the man and asked. He apologized for not knowing; it was a gift. So I said, "We'll check the tag. Turn around." He promptly complied, and Athena turned his collar out to investigate. It was tagless (as most shirts are these days), but had the Disney logo stamped on it. We determined we could get it somewhere, and sent him on his way, thanking him and apologizing for groping him. The end.
Today I'm thankful for the excitement of waiting for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 ReMix to get here, getting to work on Missions of Love, that guy in the Gaston shirt being as helpful as he could be, Page once again using the giant snake plush as a super adorable cat bed, and having maple frosting to look forward to (now we just have to decide if we want to get graham crackers to spread it on, use the recipe on the inside of the label to make maple fudge, or actually make a cake).
