Back at Harrytopia

This week has been so eventful, it wasn't until Athena reminded me that I remembered that today would be a good day to continue our report of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (and other Universal Studios attractions).

Today I'm thankful for fun with wands, the Flight of the Hippogryph, positive reviews of Mitsuboshi Colors (but how can you not love it?), getting to go to stake choir practice, and being able to amuse myself.

Why aren't we playing video games yet?

Today has been long and filled with things that aren't HaruToki3. I had to practice the piano because Celeste is singing in Sacrament Meeting tomorrow and asked me to accompany her. So about half my time was taken with that, and then there was the photo thing.

It really was...actually about what we expected it to be, but more time-consuming, because I forgot that after they take the pictures you have to come back to look at them. It was very boring. The actual shooting was alright, but I was annoyed at everything for some reason, so I was posing with a little attitude, and then when it was Athena's turn the photographer told her to pose like I had, which is silly, because Athena's the demure one. What was really weird was after she took pictures of me standing, the photographer told me to lie down on my stomach, and I was like, "Seriously?" and she was like, "Yeah." I'm all for cute and girly, but today was not a good day for it.

The whole experience really just made us want to take awesome cosplay pics. This was probably exacerbated by the fact that we've been watching America's Next Top Model, which has a very cosplay aspect to it.

But we did get to do some of our own stuff today. We worked on the Plans I mentioned earlier. We got really close to actually implementing them, but with all the other stuff going on, I started stressing out, so we decided it could wait. But we are making progress, which is very very good. Baby steps. Baby steps.

Also, we got a phone call from Optimus Prime today! Apparently Steve has joined the Decepticons. I don't know if playing on that during the whole photo experience would have made things better or worse, but Mom and Steve did realize that we were doing them a huge favor, so we probably would have gotten away with it. Oh well.

But now I've updated LJ, and hopefully soon we'll get to play video games. Today I'm thankful for phone calls from Optimus Prime, bribe candy, peanut butter dream bars, having time to practice today, and cosplay inspiration.

Getting back to normal

This week has been very strange and unusual, but today we finally started getting back to normal by actually *GASP!* translating something. Wow, it's really been about a week. And we didn't start until after lunch, which we had later than usual, so we're still not quite back to normal, but we're getting there.

We saw Transformers last night. Collapse )

And we still have a ton of anime to catch up on. And today we got a shiny new package, which we also don't quite have time for. We'll probably make time for it tomorrow or Saturday if we can, because dude, Saiyuki OVA, man. I have a lot of excitement about it that's having a difficult time surfacing because of all the other stuff we have to do. We also got the second Gunlock vocal album, which has a Gojyo/Dokugakuji duet! There's so much shiny building up it's blinding!!! AAAAAAHHHHH!!!!

Anyway, today I'm thankful for getting to see Transformers, having a Saiyuki OVA to look forward to, dark chocolate ice cream, brotherly duets, and having some semblance of normalcy back.
