One of my interests is languages. Included in that is Japanese. Perhaps some of you may shun me for claiming I like Japanese, yet I don’t fit that anime-addicted mold that tends to be the basic framework that Japanese groupies persue. Truth be told, a person can like, and even love, a language without fitting such a mold. I prefer not to deign to any insulting level, though, so I shall move on before my tounge starts cutting people.
My wife speaks japanese. I’ll leave it at that.
Each week I read a blog by a japanese woman named Miko, who has a talent for posting just the sort of stuff that I find interesting… it’s not the web-log (blog) of an uber l33t hackzor with an anime collection to rival those that I would insult in paragraph 1. Instead, it’s a normal person with normal experience, yet who finds fun things that are (in reality) little jewels of interest. I think the blog is great 🙂
Enjoy, if you choose to so do.
