Busy busy busy, as usual. Today we finished our first draft of the Ice Reaper manga before lunch! We probably would have taken the rest of the day off, except for the you're-going-to-die-ness of our impending schedule. It's actually not as bad as it seems, and there's a story which I will tell, but first I just want to say that, as a result, we decided to work on...okay, so there's a project that we can probably talk about, but we don't know if we can, so I'll just say that it's due as soon as we can get it in, but because of all our other work, that's extremely not soon. So we work on it when we have extra time in our work day, like today. And it seems to be much more time-consuming than is possibly reasonable, even though we got through twenty pages today and only worked an hour. So it's really just time-consuming, and not time-consuming beyond all reason.

As for the schedule not being quite so fatal as we at first thought. Yesterday, we turned in our Noragami script and had some discussion about some other things we need to translate for that editor, like My Little Monster, and of course it's kind of soon. So we were like, "Wait, we need to get this, this, and this all in by the end of August?" It probably would have been totally doable if we didn't know for a fact that other people were going to come along and ask for other translations in the same time-frame. Although, come to think of it, it might not actually be a fact.

Anyway, our editor emailed back and said no, only this and this need to be done by the end of August. And so we were like, "Oh. Okay, we're not gonna die." So there you have it.

After work, we went to the Primary pool party. (That's why we only got an hour of work done on the other project. That and we spent another hour figuring out passport renewal stuff. Mostly postage.) And we had a lovely time.

And now it's time for some much needed video game time.

Today I'm thankful for finally getting our passports sent in for renewal, having a lovely time at the Primary pool party, our schedule being slightly less doomful than we thought, getting to work on a ton of fun manga (this is why our schedule stays doomful--we love it all so much we can't say no!), and it being time for video games.

The Primary pool party sounds delightful! :) Are you planning a trip, and that's why you need to get your passports renewed? (You may have mentioned this, but I've forgotten; and I love hearing about travel to foreign lands, even if it's just Canada. *^_^*) I need to get my passport renewed, too, just in case we decide to go to Canada on a whim. It's about a 6 to 8 hour drive, so it wouldn't be a total "whim", but I do love Canada, especially Nova Scotia and Quebec. Oh, and Campobello Island is lovely, too, and that's in New Brunswick, which is also nice. It used to be that you didn't need a passport just to go to Canada, but since shortly after 9/11, that's been the rule.

Having work you enjoy is so awesome. I'm glad you do, even if at times you feel rushed and frustrated. *^_^*

It was! That reminds me, there was a funny story, too. One of the grown-ups there took it upon himself to guide the fun, so he started to play a game with all the kids in the jacuzzi, but one little girl, we'll call her Hermione, wanted no part of it. So he asked her what she wanted to play and she said nothing. He accommodated her and started the "nothing" game, which consisted of sitting in the jacuzzi doing nothing. Immediately after the game started, Hermione started swimming to the other side of the jacuzzi, and another little girl shouted, "You're out, Hermione!"

The passport renewal motivation isn't for any trip in particular, but because we've been feeling a need to get ourselves back to Japan at some point. We're slow about it, but if we'd renewed our passports sooner, we would have had one less excuse to turn down the trip to Japan for one we won in February. We sort of have an eye on going to D23 Expo Japan in November, but we don't want to go too crazy about planning things just yet. So, taking baby steps, we're renewing our passports.
