Curiouser and Curiouser...

That doesn't looked like it's spelled right...

Anyway, just a couple of things to add to the insanity of today. First, we missed about half of one of the episodes of the Cosby Show that we tried to watch because of a severe thunderstorm warning. Thunderstorm warnings are probably a very important thing, so I'm not complaining; I just think it's odd. Especially since we didn't hear any thunder or see any lightning today. I do wish we had figured out how to turn on closed captions though.

The other thing, which is driving us completely insane, especially coupled with the Mother's Day thing, is that our boss emailed us and offered us a new series to translate. This is a very good thing, except that we've seen some of the anime of this series and it's pretty gay, and we don't want to be condoning things that we don't believe are right. Now, really it's just the two guys who are gay (as far as we've seen), but the one keeps telling the main guy that he loves him, and the main guy blushes every time.

Not to sound like we're intolerant towards gay people. But if our church felt strongly enough to take a political stand against gay marriage, then I definitely think we should not be condoning things like that. I came up with this analogy about how we don't discriminate against people who wear immodest clothing, but our church teaches not to be immodest, even though most of society says it's okay. But then I took a look at my own views toward immodest clothing and suddenly I feel like I need to rethink my whole life. My brain hurts.

On the bright side, at least we've forgotten about Kingdom Hearts... d'oh.
