日本人ですね。

Okay, this is awesome. Today, at work, I saw this oriental guy walk into the store and then leave two times. He finally came back in and was looking at the GameBoy games. So, I walked up to him and he asked to guy the GameBoy Advance SP and Zelda. So, I paid careful attention to his accent and took notice of his peculiar haircut – yep, the guy was definitely Japanese. I was 100% sure when he told me his name – あつし (Atsushi). ^_^

I commented that he was Japanese (in Japanese, of course), and he responded happily. And here’s the kicker – he thought I was Japanese!!! (insert うれしい pose here) It was so awesome!! I even told Lee and Dennis about it. I’m such a geek, gushing over such a trivial thing, but it’s what I like, I guess. It did make me feel bad about not practicing my Japanese enough – and watching anime all the time doesn’t count as Japanese lessons!!! >_<

The one with all the Lesson Reviews.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog ever since I started using Hummingbird last fall. So, I decided to try an idea of mine called Lesson Reviews. Essentially, it’s more of a “what I learned from X anime” than a review, but the thing is, there will be good and […]

    It happens when I meet German speaking people at Wal-Mart too. . . either I’m just out of practice, which is what I think it is. . or I’m just forgetting it. But I don’t think I’m forgetting it because I can just rattle off German around my friends and family. . so maybe I’m self-concious around people who’s first language is German. . . maybe that’s your problem too. . who knows.

  3. Must watch more Spiral!!!

    See what Mizuho (my icon) has in her mouth? Look familiar??? ^_^

  4. I’d have to agree. I’m pretty self-conscious when I speak to people whose Japanese or Chinese is their primary language, so naturally, I fall back to English most of the time (or I just have really awkward moments of silence XD). It happened to me in Chinatown when I was in the city this past weekend. I practice enough Chinese at home, but when I was out there, putting it to practical use, I choked.

    The Japanese is inexcusable, though. I’m lazy and don’t go through my daily lessons like I should. Two jobs can do that to you, I suppose, but that will be a thing of the past once I pay off all my bills. I swear I will!!! XD

    Woo, and spanish, too.. I’ve translated more than once at the different jobs that I’ve had :D

    I wish I was still fluent.. :(

  7. Yes, it’s good! Watch, watch! O_O LOOM

  8. I wish I was still fluent in English…

  9. *grins* Yes! You must watch more Spiral! It is great!

    *drools* Yes….mmmmm….pocky…

  10. Spiral is great! I recommend it very very much! It has interesting twists, and very good lines. The animation is great quality as well. The story line is also gripping, I find.

    Parts of it get silly, but it’s needed to take a little edge off the seriousness.

    I’ve watched up to episode 19. Have 6 more episodes to go, then I’ll have watched it all n_n

  11. Now that I have it all downloaded, it’s probably gonna go on CD and I’ll forget about it… ;_;
