That's cool, I must say.
I wish I was going there.
To Japan, I mean.

*is jealous of Nameneko*



Although I can make out a lot of what is said there, I'm still far from being able to actually read it.



Poor Japanese. That article is like 80% katakana, which is really bad. It would be like trying to read the following:



I ikued to the benjo because shizuka-na ongaku was playing from there. Bikkurily, I found two futotteiru otoko no ko playing shamisen. From sagasuing on the Internet, I kangaeru that they chūkajiminkyōwakoku kara kirued. But zannen deshita ne because once jōzu ni narued, they derued the heya. That made me kanashii for three gakki, and I wasurerued kangae-kata. Without kangaerareru, I benjo o tsukaemasendeshita. It sugoku warukatta desu! Now the benjo is a very kowai tokoro.



Although I think katakana looks very cool, I'm no fan of the Japanese's crazy reliance on loanwords.

It seems easier to translate if you know the phrases and read it in the other language.

What's wrong with silver? What's right with Pepsi?

Silver's just getting a bit... repetitive. We need more colours!

Oh, and I would like my DS in Glacier.

And as for Pepsi, I don't like it.

I like saying colour, and I'm not British. It just looks neat.

Do you also swap the "e" and "r" in words like center and meter?


Nintendo has announced four new colors in Japan.

Occasionally, I imagine writing and pronouning "centre," but out of habit, I never do.

I'm Australian, but yes, I am part British from my mother's side. Good pick!
