It's no surprise to me that when it came time to learn a language, I picked theirs. It's not just because of their bad-ass history, or their super entertaining media, it's their people. Every Japanese person I've ever taken the time to get to know has been crazy friendly and polite. I'm talking Canadian friendly. So why didn't I just learn Canadian? Because I already speak English, and the Canadians who speak French are complete assholes. That's why they're stuck in Quebec, true Canadians are the only ones that won't slaughter them. Anyone else on Earth would have killed them out of a sense of social responsibility. Anyway, this isn't about them, this is about the beautiful Japanese.
They had their earthquake, and I couldn't bring myself to blog for a week. I was lucky that my loyal New Zealand reader, Melissa had made it through the quake there. Then this thing with Japan. I couldn't bring myself to talk about myself for a whole week. That's like a year in me years. I had a pretty solid Japanese following before. I haven't seen a single hit since. It... bothers me.
Ultimately though, I have absolute faith in them. They are brilliant, kind, fucked-up, and totally inappropriate. Just like me. No wonder I love them so much.
