This blog is inspired by another fellow blogger who is known as the Good Greatsby. There are many things that get lost in translation. Here in Japan, signage is probably one of the more interesting manifestations of this.
What is pirie sharp taste? If anyone reading this understands this flavor, please explain it to me. I guess I just need to buy a bag of snack with the red dot and experience it myself. I’m sure as soon as I take a bite, I will say, “Man, this is so pirie sharp tasting!” And they couldn’t spell Soy Sauce correctly?!? What the heck is bare boiling dry taste? Readers, just for you, I’m going to buy some of these snack treats and translate it for you.
I guess if you eat one of these pastries, you too can be “Glamous”. I don’t really get the connection between pastries and feeling Glamous, but maybe I should give it a shot.
I passed this sign near our apartment building. I think they are advertising vacancies in this apartment complex. Again, all these smart people and no one thinks to ask an English speaker to proofread.
What the heck is going on in America? Thanks to Fox Radio, I am keeping up with the news of America and I have to say, it ain’t pretty. I wish people/press would take a moment to consider how they are coming off in the global community. It is very ironic to me that everyone is trying to make such a big deal out of Newt’s Ex-Wife’s interview with ABC. Her confession about Newt asking if she would abide by an open marriage. The first thing that came to my mind was that Bill Clinton had an open marriage with Hillary, he just didn’t have the balls to ask permission first. Let’s be honest, what man doesn’t want to ask his wife this question? Shit, I asked my husband last year if we could have an open marriage (btw, he declined). I think Newt Gingrich should have t-shirts made that read, “I’m Republican and Open.” I know I’d buy that shirt. I’m not saying I am definitely voting for Newt, but I have to give the man props for standing up to the press and being so transparent in his marriage. Personally, I think if he was my husband and asked if I’d be willing to share him, I think I would have said absolutely.
Until next time…
