Kanji'ed Out

Wednesday September 19, 5:43 p.m.

Well, got another big translation assignment out of the way. I was hoping to get the pages done by noon, but because of some stubbornly difficult kanji and other expressions, the thing got done close to 2:30. Had to skip lunch and almost lost it on one especially truculent Chinese character (you thought Leafs manager Brian Burke had a monopoly on that word?). Also ran through a couple of other files as an editor and I am done....for the next dozen hours or so. The boss told me that there would be another smaller assignment coming in tomorrow...or perhaps Friday.

Actually, the parentals are out in Niagara Falls once again hitting the casino. I'd only found out this morning, just a few minutes before they left, that they would be staying the night at the Falls. Just as well, since with all my teeth-gnashing and hair-pulling, I wouldn't have been too good a son today.

Gonna decompress for the rest of the night. I'll be making myself a nice little steak for dinner, watch some anime, tape that episode of "Ume-chan Sensei" for my parents and then hit the music blog for another couple of entries.

Man, it was pretty chilly out in the corridor today (had no time to go outside). I can only imagine what it must've been like outside this morning. Timing couldn't be better.
