    This is a great site; interesting, entertaining and eye-opening.
    I'm enjoying everyone's stories and ideas, even if I don't really
    need the "support".
    More later,

    LOL, yep, you got me!

    And I guess I can speak SOME Japanese, but its the very basics used only to get by day in and day out. I just didn't want anyone posting all these messages to me in Japanese expecting me to understand what the Hell they meant...hehe.

    Ohayo gozaimasu! (That was lesson one.)

    In Bryan's words, I was an english-speaking-I-just-live-and-work-here Japanese (otherwise known more kindly as an expat) in Japan until about a year ago.

    I went on a two year contract, found love, and stayed for five. My functional Japanese is crap, but my cab-driver, bullet-train and bar-room Japanese is impeccable.

    Given the handle sensei, I assume you are an English teacher? (There's a union for Nova employees, by the way.)

    Irashaimasse!
