Me and my long sentences...

For Family Home Evening tonight, we went on a hayride. It was our first hayride ever, and we realized why we've never been on one before. Although if it weren't for our crazy fear of people, it might have been more fun. But I really think that it's not a good idea to sing Christmas carols with the attitude of being a drunken fraternity. Not that we know what a real drunken fraternity sounds like, and in fact, it probably wasn't actually that bad, but the lack of unity in singing was really bugging both of us. And we found out later in the evening that apparently a very select few of the people there knew a full verse to any of the songs we attempted singing. And now I'm just ranting.

Anyway, we were very happy to make it home. Originally, the plan was to work more on translating so we could get to the shiny new manga that much more quickly (nothing motivates the Twins like sparkly new manga waiting to be translated), but we were both too tired, and nothing was on any of the channels listed on the TV Guide channel, so we turned it to the Asian channel (for some reason unlisted) and watched a weird movie that appeared to take place during WWII, and had a guy who looked like Pat Morita, who actually turned out to be Pat Morita. I think it was about an American soldier who had to escape from Japan with the help of this girl he fell in love with and her father, but it was a little hard to tell, since we only caught the last half hour.

Tonight I'm thankful for warm kitties, sparkly new manga that's waiting to be translated, apartment managers that let us know when we have a package even when the UPS guy doesn't, the ever-approaching opportunity to get back to translating manga manga rather than magazine-type things about manga, and the ability to translate magazine-type things about manga.

And our lesson for today is that ginger bread blasts are much better in theory than in practice.
