1. I posted more manga! I'm excited about that.

2. I had a ton of interviews today and I have a bunch more Friday and Saturday, so I didn't make any final decisions today, but I was really impressed with one guy and he seemed keen on the job, so I probably will hire him at least. (And he was one of the ones who answered the Craigslist ad, so that was definitely money well spent.)

3. I played some Zelda tonight and finally reached Zora's Domain! I also did like four shrines on the way, plus opened up Lanayru Tower. Oh, and killed a Hinox.

4. I get to sleep in tomorrow! The bad news is that the reason I get to sleep in is because I have to work until like 3:00am, so I'm going in around noon. But I'm still glad I get to sleep in, and also it means I won't be there for the morning delivery, which I hate.

5. Sleepy Chloe!

1. Our old HDMI switcher box stopped working a while ago, probably due to the cats knocking it off the TV table too many times. So that meant if I wanted to play Zelda on the TV, I had to unplug the Apple TV and plug it in directly (the second HDMI port on the TV is also not working, so we can't just have them both plugged in directly), which is a pain, so it kind of kept me from playing as much as I wanted to (though I was also busy with other stuff).

But I finally remembered to order a new one from Amazon and that came the other day, and today when we were at Target I got velcro sticky things to affix it to the TV stand so it doesn't get knocked over by cats (also got some for the Apple TV, which has also been knocked down many times but is apparently sturdier). So now we can have them both plugged in and easily switch between them (and the X-Box One, though that doesn't get much use)!

2. I played Zelda a bunch this afternoon! I haven't played for like a week, and between watching Carla and the Let's Play I've been following, I am now having a hard time remembering what's stuff that I've actually done and what I've just seen done. Doh. But I did do a lot today. I finally got Link's first memory! And did some small sidequests. And explored a bit more. I think tomorrow I'll head off to Zora's Domain (though I might take a long and winding route and stop at some shrines on the way).

3. I didn't get as much translating done as I'd hoped, but I did get some housework done.

4. I posted manga! Though I just realized the month is nearly over and there's some stuff I haven't even started on yet, so I'd better get on that...

5. I was home with the kitties all day and they were super cuties but somehow I didn't take any pictures. Luckily I have tons of backstock!

I finally found someone to work with me on this series, so hopefully we'll be able to get it out at a faster pace. :D

Summary: Sickly Kishida Jun has the ability to see ghosts, but in his opinion, it's a stupid power and nothing good ever comes of it. Considering the number of grisly situations he seems to find himself in after the ghost of his childhood friend Hayakawa Ryoko starts following him around, he may have a point.

Chapter Summary: In chapter 9, a serial killer's creepy dolls continue his dirty work after his death. In chapter 10, Mako enlists Kishida's help to discover her new employer's secret.

1. I got permission to place an ad on Craigslist for some positions we're hiring for and already got three replies right after the ad went up. Hopefully I'll get some more replies tomorrow and one or more of these people will work out.

2. Day off tomorrow! Wednesday is inventory, so Tuesday and Wednesday will be very hectic, so I'm looking forward to resting up tomorrow to be ready for that. :p

3. This cutie sleepy Jasper right here!

[tumblr.com profile] bathtimefunduck gave us this gem:

The female body literally cannot carry a child to full development. It would kill us. We’re more like… game developers at Ubisoft— we kick the product out before it’s ready and hope we can work out the bugs to make them playable as they get older.

Today I had occasion to buy a tube of that caramel flavoured paraffin stuff you give to cats who get hairballs regularly, Beatrice >:( Laxapet is not actually the brand name of the stuff I bought today, but it's the same stuff and that's what I'm used to calling it.

Why did I need a new tube? Well, the old one had disappeared. Disappeared how and why? It is a mystery.

I bought the new tube and brought it in, and shooed Dorian away from it when he seemed to be way too interested, and then tonight I tried to administer some to Beatrice. The problem was not getting her to take it (in my experience cats love this stuff. It's very strange.) The problem was that the tube wouldn't squeeze easily.

Why wouldn't the tube squeeze easily? I don't know, but the two neat puncture marks on the other end of it probably had something to do with that.

Scanlations: IS [ai-esu] ch. 74

torachan: two people embracing (is)
[personal profile] torachan
I know we've been really slow about putting out this series over the years, but thanks to everyone who's stuck with us. This is the final chapter of volume 16, which means there is just one more volume, five chapters left to go!



Title: IS [ai-esu]
Original Title: IS~男でも女でもない性~ (IS~Otoko Demo Onna Demo Nai Sei~)
Author: Rokuhana Chiyo
Publisher: Kiss Comics
Genre: Josei
Status in Japan: 17 volumes, complete
Scanlator: Dokukinoko Scans (translation by Megchan)
Scanlation Status: Ongoing
More Info: Baka Updates

Summary: IS is a unique manga that realistically deals with the topic of intersexuality. It starts off with a couple shorts dealing with different intersex characters, but starting with the second volume, it becomes a regular series following one character from birth to adulthood.

Chapter Summary: Despite all the hurdles, Haru's dream of opening his own shop has finally come true. But what about his life outside of work? On the day of the grand opening, he gets encouragement from an unexpected source...



Chapter 74

And here's a full volume download for those who want it.
jennaria: Chihiro from SPIRITED AWAY (Chihiro)

I might need to see it again - not so much because I liked it that much, as because I wasn't seeing it as its own movie. I was seeing it as all the bits and pieces that were the same, or changed, or in dialogue with* the animated movie, which I love with the unreasoning love of the 13-year-old Thia-let who originally saw it.

*'in dialogue with' here means 'holy crap I noticed that (e.g. why did nobody remember the castle) and they clearly noticed it as well and are saying something about it (e.g. a mention during the prologue that the memory blank was part of the sorceress's spell).'

More detail about what I liked or didn't like beneath the cut, because SPOILERS HO. No really, so much spoilers. )
