maypirate: (Ranma - get off my boat!)
In which a simile kind of gets away from me, but I attempt to reel it back in with minor success:

[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: She acted like a reasonable human the other day, which she does every now and then, and it was super frustrating as usual.
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: I never know what to do with myself when she isn't a troll.
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: Hahahaha
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: I'm sorry
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: It creates so much cognitive dissonance.
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: It's like that old WB cartoon with the dancing frog.
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: I... do not think I know it
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: ....that's terrible.
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: LET ME TEACH YOU ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT BIT OF AMERICANA
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: OKAY
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: PLEASE DO
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Froggy_Evening
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: It's actually surprisingly bleak. ANd like, a study of slow descent into madness.
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: But in cartoon form, of course.
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: O_O
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: But the point here is, that my boss is like an anomalous dancing frog. Where you're like "boring frog WAIT DANCING FROG wait no, boring frog again, did that really happen?"
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: Hahahahahaha
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: I see
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: And then you end up poor and alone and crazy.
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: Or something.
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: That part is optional.
[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces: Please don't go crazy and poor and alone
[livejournal.com profile] maypirate: Well no promises. But I'll try not to.

Anyway, for clarification, and so I can remember this the next time I want to beat her to death with a Russ Meyer VHS, for literally 5 years I have been waiting for us to sell our last Ranma 1/2 OVA set:



This year, it was finally on the cusp, and I did my best to shove it over. And then my boss pointed out that it sells for nothing less than $90 on Amazon. Whereupon I went "SIFUHSIUHI I'LL GIVE YOU $60 FOR IT!" and in a surprisingly humane act, and one that lost her at least $20, she gave it to me.

I know $60 may seem like a lot for an anime set of this age, but you have to understand that 1) I love this thing to pieces, 2) I obviously couldn't get it for a better price, and 3) I'VE WAITED FIVE YEARS FOR THIS. FIVE YEARS.

Anyway, that was the major success of my week, and apparently the most important thing I can think of right now. Soon my boss will resume not being a dancing frog and all will be darkness once more.
