So excited

My friend chided me for not updating more. I actually have wanted to update, but I could never decide what to talk about (before I got distracted with something else). That's always the case; it's hard for me to think long enough to actually get something done sometimes! Things flit in and out of my head. Distractible is what I am.


But today I have something! I went to Japan Town to pick up ab's and my Reijin subscription, and I found volume three of Songs of Self Abuse! I'm just so excited!

It's a little early, in the sense that the scanlation of volume two is still under way and proceeding rather slowly. But I was just so happy to put my hand on it! And buy it. Of course I bought it.

So now I have a ton of reading, between Reijin, Self-Abuse, and the volumes I bought for another scanlator friend. Fun fun fun!

In other news, work has kept me very busy. It's been a challenge to continue translating, as I've been coming home physically and mentally wiped out. I did finish a chapter of Ouji ga Aishita Spy (the sequel to Breakfast Club), which we are doing as a joint with another group, and I'm working my way through Chapter 4 of Self Abuse II. I did one big chunk of text this morning. But the panel and two big chunks :D SO I didn't even complete a panel in the two or three hours I worked. Haha. That's Self Abuse for you.

Those of you who care have by now figured out that translation is complete on Breakfast Club! Otherwise I wouldn't be translating Ouji ga Aishita Spy. Well, if you didn't figure it out, and I haven't said it before, I'm saying it now. We're just slowly getting through the typesetting and proofing on the remainder of Breakfast Club. Some really great chapters are coming up.

Japan Town?! You have one near you? That's so awesome! :D
Glad to know that you're having a good time there ^^

I've been wondering for a while now..about how nice it would be if my mom were like you..with yaoi interests XD (ok I am dreaming too much..hehe. There is NO way my mom will ever like yaoi)

Happy mother's day! (I know this is a *little* late ^^;;)

Thank you my dear!

I hope my kids benefit from my open-minded approach to literature :D I'm certainly not narrow-minded! :D

Ah, well it's not what I really consider close, but maybe I'm just being spoiled LOL It's in the city where I live (san Francisco) and I guess it's a 15-minute drive? So yeah I guess it's close LOL

:O! San Francisco eh? Then I guess it's a place I need to keep in mind whenever I visit SF one of these days :D

Thank you!!! That sounds really promising! :D I've always wanted to go to japanese places, since I don't really have the chance to go to Japan yet ^^;;

I'll be sure to remember to let you know! :)

It sounds like you have been very busy with the new job. Don't over do it. Take time for yourself and relax and enjoy what you like to do whether it is knitting or translating or just sitting back and reading.

Smiling that you found vol 3 of Songs of Self Abuse. You really are asking for more work aren't you :)

Hahaha, it's become ingrained. Or more like, I'm so impressed and thrilled by what I've read so far, I really need to read more.

Taking it easy? I napped yesterday and today, so I think I'm doing okay :)
