The New Face of Pat, Your Imperial Ruler 羽刀、貴方達庶民の天皇の、新しい顔

New banner! Whee! 新しい横看板!やった!

The beard is continuing to protect against the cold, and coupled with my ever-growing hair (on the head), I can now carry giant snowballs on my shoulder and not feel cold. I'll have to shave and cut in March for girlfriend reasons, but until then, it's wolf time.

On Friday night I went with two nice women from the now-defunct English group to see a movie called "Always: Evening in 3-chome", about Tokyo in 1958. Even if it does glorify that damn Eiffel rip-off hunk of metal, it was a good movie. The funny parts were funny, and the sad parts were sad. I recommend.

On Saturday I went to the gym and used the equipment with two friends, which was fun. While filling out the registration, a guy came over and asked me what country am I from and the usual chitchat. To finish up, he said 'Well, I hope you take a good Japanese wife from here!' Things progressed even more hilariousy when we went upstairs to use the equipment. The two Japanese girls I was with ... didn't say a word! They just stood there while the attendant panicked over what the hell these three people were standing there just staring at her for! Eventually I spoke up and said 'Hey, we're new. Do we give these forms to you or what?' Later, she said she had been panicking because she thought she'd have to speak English. Come on. This is Ichinoseki. If you meet a white person here, chances are they're a Portuguese-speaking Brazilian.


Saturday was also Soccer Day, and I lasted for about 5 mintues before falling and twisting my ankle. AGAIN. It's fine now though.

I've moved my computer into the kitchen, which means I'm closer to the fridge. The space heater for the kitchen is this orange demonic thing, on which I burned my underwear trying to heat it up one morning. パソコンを台所に移動したので、もっと冷蔵庫の近くになってしまった・・・台所である暖房はこの鬼みたいみかん色な物。これで或る朝に下着を暖めてみる時はよく燃やしてしまった!

And thus passed the weekend.

  • So I need some clarification.
    The guy that hopes you get a good Japanese wife... was he white?

    The guy was Japanese, in his 50s or 60s, working in the gym office when we went to register.

  • Silly Boy...underwear is for microwaving...not heating...

  • HAHA! You put your underwear on a space heater! That's just too funny and sounds too much like what some of my floormates would do here at LU....damn it's cold first thing in the morning. Anyways, I do agree that underwear should be put in the microwave, or even put them inside your sheets, like at the end of your bed when you go to bed, then they'll be warm in the morning. But oh well...back to my studies now, not that I really do them, I mean come on, I'm an English Literature major, do they really expect me to do work?

  • I don't have a microwave ... hmm, maybe I should get one. Does anyone remember the Seinfeld where Kramer cooked his shirt in a pizza oven? I feel like doing that. I can't even get into bed at night because, well, the covers are freezing. Literally.

  • Sarah: You must be a first year.

    And Pat: I suggest setting your house on fire. That'll be the warmest it'll ever get.

  • Well I would set the other apartments on fire as well. So that might be bad for the other tenants, but who cares about them.

    Actually the fire trucks were going past the school today. The first thing I thought of was 'Shit. Forgot to turn the gas off again.'

  • Actually I'm a second year.....and these tricks do work. Putting clothes at the end of your bed, I do it from time to time because of the Sudbury winter...it can get pretty cold. But oh well, I've been doing things like that since I was little, born in the north, raised in Pembroke.....oh I mean SHIT-TOWN (lol...yeah I hate it there).

    And Pat, or Patto (I don't know what you go by these days, I haven't seen/talked to you in like 3 years) send me an email if possible
