Winter approaches.

Yesterday it was 65 degrees. When I went outside this morning it was 45 degrees. I felt like someone slapped me in the nuts.

A dialogue

Patrick: I don't believe in avocados.
Coworker: ...? What the hell are you talking about?
Patrick: I, I don't understand your question.
Coworker: What?
Patrick: What-what?

Thriller!

It's pretty much the exactly the same except it sucks and it's fun to laugh at.

As a linguist I can tell you that crotch thrusts are indeed universal and I try to work them in to the majority of my conversations with other people.

RIP SeXibLaster885

I must play too many video games. I was looking at Cnn.com and one of the headlines was "Quake victims mourned a year later" and it took me a good couple of seconds to realize they were talking about an earthquake.

I was like, "Man that must have been some serious pwnage!"

Go on without me

When the kids come into the classroom (I teach English btw) I usually ask them a few simple questions. I guess I've been doing the same ones for a while because today a little girl started answering as soon as she came through the door. I'm not making this up, I wrote it down right after it happened so I wouldn't forget.

Patrick: Hello Mayumi! Ho-
Mayumi: I'm fine thank you.
Patrick: Um, how are you?
Mayumi: I am six years old.
Patrick: Honey, wait until I ask the quest-
Mayumi: I like strawberries.
Patrick: Um...okay.
Mayumi: Purple.
Patrick: Good times.

She then gave a little bow and went to her seat.

F U 2

For my last post I had to type in the scrambled letters at the bottom to verify that I'm a real person before it would post.

The letters were 'fudik.'

I've got two more

I have a class with some elderly ladies once a week and we were discussing expressions for dissapointments the other day. Things like, "O well" and "What can you do" and some more serious ones like, "I'm so sorry to hear about your Wife/Dog."
They were having a hard time distinguishing what levels of severity each expression conveys, especially "O Well." The example that I gave (wrote it on the board) was this:

Correct:
A-san: "I lost your pen."
B-san: "Oh, well."

Incorrect:
A-san: "I lost your baby."
B-san: "Oh, well."

How did it go you ask? If I make them laugh like that again two of them will probably die.

(at which point the class would respond, "oh, well.")

Brief recap on me:

I live in Kyoto, Japan. I teach English 4 days a week at a private school. I eat bagels 3 days a week in my kitchen. I train in Kung Fu and Philipino fighting sticks 2 days a week.

Life is greatastic. I have lots of free time and I really enjoy work. Still don't know if I want to continue on for a Masters and be and ESL teacher fo life. I'll have been here 11 months in two hours.

Please send me an email at p underscore evans at hotmail dot com. If you can't figure that out then send me one at ifyoucanttellthisisntarealaddresssthen@idontwanttotalktoyou.com. I check it daily.

I have an extra room if anyone wants to visit.

Alrighty

There's a chance that I might start writing here again. Funnyness has continued throughout the absence and I lament the amount of unrecorded laughynesstimes.

Mmm..mmm?

I farted in a bakery today, I think that means I'm going to hell.
