Quittin' time!

Woohoo, we finished work early today! Actually, we finished it at about the regular time, but these days, that's early.

And in other awesome news, we discovered that there is such a thing as brigadeiros! The video that clued us in to their existence was also a "how to make them" video, and the ingredients are butter, condensed milk, and cocoa. This sounds like the most amazing snack in existence. Maybe one day in the Mythical Time, we'll be feeling adventurous enough to try making them. In the meantime, we're still working up the motivation to turn our current set of adventure ingredients into Muddy Buddies. We've even successfully made Muddy Buddies before, so the problem is not fear of failure. It's more, "But that's more time we could be spending playing Kingdom Hearts...!"

Not that we've been spending all our free time playing Kingdom Hearts (which of course is part of the problem). Last night we finally managed to get caught up on the Yona anime! And I bring that up because we need some clarification on S...Si...Shi...Shin'a (just going with a straight romanization here)... Shin'a's powers. We always thought his supersight included the ability to see through solid objects. Is that wrong? Because they could just have him look at the ships to determine who/what is on each one, couldn't they? Unless we're way off and he can only just see really far. But I thought his mask didn't have eyeholes... Er, I mean, I thought the part that looked like eyes was just painted on or something.

We also went to Wednesdays with Walt, as usual. Last night, they showed Tricks of the Trade, where Walt Disney tells about all the study and effort that goes into making realistic animation. The effects animation especially seems like it involves a lot of research...and watching a lot of things happen in slow motion. Fascinating stuff.

Today I'm thankful for the hope of one day getting to eat a brigadeiro, finishing work early today, Page being a good sport about us not letting her sit on the laptop keyboard, having Pringles to look forward to, and new flavors of Emergen-C.

I also was under the impression that Shin'a can see through objects, but maybe looking far away AND through multiple layers of boat/sail/etc would be pushing it? I don't know. I don't have a proper explanation for that. But it does feel like looking through objects would be easier up close than at a distance: with normal eyesight, I can put a piece of fabric over my eyes and see through the spaces in the material, but if that fabric were covering something on the other side of the room, I wouldn't be able to see what was underneath.

Ugh, people and their amazing-looking/sounding desserts that I can't have... (just kidding, I can have muddy buddies, but I can't make it because then I'd eat it all and that would be a bad idea. also I'm just getting over a cold so consuming mounds of sugar is an extra bad idea.) Anyway, I hope you enjoy your food-making adventures! :D

We kind of thought of the distance thing, too, but once they're close enough to fight, that shouldn't be so much of a problem. If it is something like seeing through fabric, that might explain it, though.

You could also have brigadeiros if you didn't mind the consequences. XD

Noragami comp copies!!! As far as we know, the English version of Noragami is still a myth. Maybe someday we'll talk to someone about that, but it still remains unnecessary.

Brigadeiros are amazing. My brother learned how to make them on his mission (he was in Brasil), and he's made them several times since coming home. If you'd like, I can ask him if he has any tips on making them.

Thanks for the offer. We would not be opposed to your asking him for tips, but we probably won't be making them for a long long time, so there's no rush.
