1. We got this new aloe yogurt in at work called Alove and it is so good. *_*

2. Not only did I post some manga tonight, but I also got the typeset pages back for a project that's been a couple years in the making and hopefully will have that ready to post sometime in the next few days, too.

3. Couple of the cutest kitties ever.

torachan: (Default)
1. Got my haircut. It was starting to bother me, so yay.

2. I finished translating two chapters of manga, and worked a bit on a couple others.

3. Chloe has been really bothering me in the middle of the night the past couple weeks (she keeps getting in the window by my side of the bed and making noise) and I feel like I haven't had a good night's sleep in ages, so last night we decided to shut the door and see how that went and it was great. She knocked on the door once around six for breakfast, but didn't bang on the door or anything during the night. I think we'll try to keep the door closed for a while to try and break her of her nightly window obsession (she only cares about it at night for some reason).

4. I really can't get over how huge Jasper is. Only nine months!

1. Another busy, busy day at work, but I have tomorrow off!

2. Tonight was finally season three episode two of Rick and Morty! It was a pretty great episode.

3. Summer school at the college is over and the fall semester doesn't start until the end of the month, so we have a few weeks of peace and quiet in the neighborhood.

4. Chloe was staring really intently at something and Carla was able to get some really great shots of her.

1. We had two cashiers call out sick this morning and there was no one to take their place, so I was on the register a lot, but things calmed down later in the day when the evening shift people came in.

2. I finally got the next chapter of Baby, Kokoro no Mama ni! posted.

3. I love this perfect tail curl.

1. Suuuper hectic again today, but at least it makes the day go by fast...

2. Carla grilled tonight and we had delicious tri-tip for dinner.

3. I got Hey! Pikmin in the mail today. It's pretty fun!

4. Jasper!

torachan: nepeta from homestuck (nepeta)
1. I slept like ten hours and was only interrupted by cats a little bit.

2. Had a nice day off. Got a lot of translation stuff done.

3. I just found out this iOS game I really love, Oceanhorn, is out for the Switch! I've kind of been wanting to play it again, and the Switch controls can't help but be better than the touchscreen ones, so I'm pretty excited about that.

4. Just checked Facebook one last time before bed and saw that the ACA repeal bill didn't pass, thank fuck.

5. Carla managed to snap a shot of Chloe yawning. So cute!

1. Today was one of those days where I was constantly running around the store doing one thing or another. It felt so hectic and I even had to be on the register for a while because someone went home sick, so I thought for sure I'd have to be there until after seven at the least, but I ended up getting everything done by six-thirty.

2. I stayed up way too late last night reading, and then Chloe was being a pest and making noise and keeping me up, so I didn't end up getting much sleep last night, but now I'm super tired and it's only midnight, so I'm going to go to bed in a few minutes and am hopeful that I'll be able to get a good night's sleep tonight. (And I can sleep in tomorrow, too.)

3. Looooooook at this sweet Molly on my desk!

torachan: nepeta from homestuck (nepeta)
1. I posted the final chapter of Tera Girl! I feel really good about getting that finished.

2. It was busy at work today and two people called out sick, but we had enough other people to cover and I didn't end up needing to stay as long as I thought I might (in fact, I got out of there pretty much on time).

3. We started watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend tonight. There's definitely a lot of cringey embarrassing situations, which are kind of hard to watch, but overall I'm enjoying it.

4. We went to DK's for doughnuts tonight. They had a new mango doughnut that was super tasty (though it's one of their pricey ones, so I doubt I'll get it again).

5. Jasper feet!

torachan: maru the cat giving the side eye (maru side eye)
1. I had a good day off today. Got a chapter of You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead finished, and almost finished a chapter of Fulldrum. Did some housework, ran some errands. Got a lot of reading done.

2. I finally got the last memory in Breath of the Wild. Also finished up one of the sidequests I had hanging about (the Stalhorse one), and decided to search for the DLC treasures. So far I got the Twilight Princess mask and Majora's mask. (Both of them, as well as Misko's journal, which tells you the locations of the treasurers, were all in areas I'd never explored before, too.) Oh, and I picked up the reward for finding all 120 shrines.

3. When we were out running errands, I stopped at See's Candy and got some stuff that turned out to be almost exactly the amount left on the gift card my mom got me for my birthday. So I got a big bag of chocolates and only had to pay 28 cents. :D

4. Got soooo many great kitty pics today. I really love this one of Chloe looking regal.

torachan: close-up of a sleepy kitten face (sleepy molly)
1. I have stayed up too late and am especially glad to have a day off tomorrow where I can sleep in.

2. We finished up season one of Daria tonight. I've really been enjoying it a lot.

3. I have also been enjoying the fairly cool weather we've been having. Looks like it's supposed to get up into the low 80s in the beginning of August, and I'm hoping it doesn't get too much warmer than that, but it probably will.

4. How are these cats so cute?

torachan: (Default)
1. I have to stay till closing tomorrow, which means I don't have to go in until noonish, so I can have a nice lazy morning.

2. Last night Jasper fell asleep with his head on the base of the scratching post, which was super cute.

1. I'm just a few pages away from being done translating Tera Girl! Even though this is only a three volume series, it was such low priority it feels like it's taken forever to finish it, so I'm excited to finally get it done. (There is an unrelated one-shot at included in the last volume, and I do also plan to translate that, so I won't technically be done with the series until that's done, but I'll be done with the main story and the unrelated one-shot can wait for a bit.)

2. We got these delicious edamame Pretz in recently at work and I just tried them today and they're so good!

3. Carla got a bunch of really cute Chloe pics yesterday.

1. My mom called me this afternoon and said her husband was having problems with his computer, could I come over and fix it and she'd give me money off the rent if I did. Well, that's always good incentive, but especially considering we just had $1500 in car repairs, I rushed right over. :p And it was an easy fix, so I probably spent more time driving over there in lunchtime traffic than actually spent at his computer.

2. I finally got the last of the twelve memories in Zelda, and now there's another final memory to get. I played for quite a while today but I don't even know what all I did. Mostly wander around central Hyrule and kill Guardians in hopes of getting some damn ancient cores, but I killed like ten or more and only one dropped a core. I need three more cores to upgrade the last piece of my guardian armor! I also randomly found the Tingle tights even though I wasn't even looking for them. Oh, and I played some of the Trial of the Sword, but I died and then decided to do something else for a while.

3. Jasper is getting so big! He's almost nine months and he's pretty much as big as Chloe now, maybe even a little bigger.

1. Day off tomorrow! I'm looking forward to staying home and relaxing.

2. The weather's been staying cooler after that spike earlier in the month. High seventies in the day, back down in the sixties at night. It's still pretty muggy, but I'll take this over being muggy and super hot any time.

3. I love looking up at the high shelf above my computer and seeing kitty paws sticking out. XD

1. Got the car back this afternoon and it's running great. I think the disintigrating parts that had to be replaced were probably disintigrating for a while and its performance was suffering, but not to the point where we really noticed until it got really bad.

2. Molly and Jasper really don't spend much time together, so I was really happy to see them both on the window table together looking at a bug last night.

1. The check engine light came on the other day and both Carla and I noticed the car was feeling a bit wonky when we were driving, so we took it across the street to get looked at and...it's going to cost $1400. D: But, on the bright side, I hadn't gotten around to taking it in to get the bumper and stuff repaired from the accident yet, so at least we didn't just have $1000* in repairs and then this. The bumper stuff is all cosmetic (except for the fact that the trunk latch is now misaligned and hard to shut, but that just means we can't use the trunk, and we can do without a trunk for a while), so we can just keep putting that off for a while until these repairs are paid off. SIGH.

*I don't think I mentioned this, but the repairs that were supposed to be paid 50/50 by us and the other driver's insurance? Well, apparently the other driver changed their story and insists they weren't backing up, and their insurance has decided to believe them even though they had previously admitted to backing up, so now the insurance won't pay, and my insurance says the only way we can get them to is to take them to small claims court, which I do not have the time for, so we're stuck paying the full amount. We are going to see if we can get another estimate from somewhere else, though, once we do finally take it in for repairs.

One other plus is that they should be able to get it back to us tomorrow, so we won't be without the car for long.

2. I posted so much manga today. I feel very accomplished!

3. I played some more Zelda this evening. Finally got the last two shrines done, and also finished up a few more quests and did some armor upgrades. Still trying to decide if I want to do the master sword trial in this game or not.

4. Speaking of games, I got an email from Nintendo informing me that the new Pikmin game is out at the end of this month, so I pre-ordered it. I've never been that interested in Pikmin until they made it a side-scroller and then I was like, I'm there! XD

5. I love this picture of Chloe so much. (That's one of her favorite places to curl up for a nap.)

1. My contacts started really bothering me today at work, so I went home and got my glasses. It's always nice to live super close to where I work, but it's especially great for times like this. If I lived further away, I would have just toughed it out or took out my contacts and been blurry all day. Since tomorrow's my day off, I'm going to give my eyes a rest and just wear my glasses all day at home.

2. I posted manga today and should have more to post soon. :D

3. This morning I went out to the kitchen and looked up and saw Jasper on the high shelf in the living room! He's watched Chloe and Molly jump up there so many times and clearly wanted to get up there himself but just didn't realize he could do it. Last night he jumped up on the dresser in the bedroom for the first time, too, so he's clearly getting more confident in his jumping.

torachan: (Default)
1. I actually slept in this morning, which was really nice.

2. I'm so, so glad the weather's cooled down a bit. The forecast has us holding steady at high 70s for the next ten days, so that would be nice if it stays true!

3. Jasper really loves to curl up in the computer room closet lately, and the other day I poked my head in and instead of being in his usual spot on top of a box, he was actually stretched out behind a bunch of stuff and looking so cute!

torachan: close-up of a sleepy kitten face (sleepy molly)
1. It looks like maybe they're done (or mostly done) with the work they've been doing on our street. If nothing else, it's the weekend, so there will be quiet for two days, but I really hope they're done for good!

2. We had some watermelon tonight and it was pretty tasty! Not the best I've ever had or anything, but pretty good. I like that the cut watermelons we sell at work aren't higher priced than the whole ones (a lot of stores, the cut ones are way more expensive). I like being able to just buy a quarter (or sometimes half) at a time.

3. The new box we got the other day is a hit with all three kitties. (Though I haven't gotten a pic of Jasper in it yet.)

torachan: jason momoa/ronon smiling (ronon)
1. We went out to lunch with my aunt today, who is in town for a few days.

2. I got in some Zelda time this evening. That new map feature is just so awesome. I would have sworn that I had completely explored everywhere, but with the tracker on, I could see that there were some huge areas I'd managed to just completely go around every time, including one which had a shrine in it. So I did that, farmed some more materials and was able to upgrade a few more armor bits, found some Koroks, got another couple quests done, and now I am that much closer to feeling like I could go beat Ganon and be satisfied with my level of completion (definitely want to get the last two shrines and the last memory; I'm not going to force myself to upgrade all the armor sets just to say I did, because at this point that's still going to require a lot of farming, and I'm probably not going to try and get every last quest done). Still not sure if I want to do the Master Sword trial this game or save it for my next game... I'm definitely going to save the new armor quests for the next game, just to have something new to do.

3. Chloe was being super cute this afternoon.
