Idols' Words of Wisdom

After realizing that if there is a section dedicated to our amazing blunders of language, there should be a place for fabulous funny quotes by idols we enjoy. Why? Because it makes us smile and maybe a couple will crack a smile out of you too.

On a Cooking Show with Yamashita Tomohisa:
H: "Um, as hungry as you are..."
Y: "Oh, that's right I have to say things." *puts down chopsticks with mouth stuffed*
H: *laughs* So how is the bamboo? Is it cooked well?"
Y: *looks at them in his bowl* "Well, I'd say they are a revolution in the world of bamboo shoots."

And the Start of Something New

Hajimemashite! Melon here! As you have most likely read in my comrade, Mochi's post we're just two Americans studying in Japan and as she so eloquently put it, this year will most likely change the way we see the world and the way that we live our lives.

By chance or fate we have met because we both chose this program and our friendship has grow to be one that feels like it has existed for years rather than weeks and that's how we like it. At points, what we post on this blog may seem incoherent or even insane. We're essentially happy people and many different things bring us joy and amusement. It's how we are and if you enjoy random spazzing with intermittent revelations about life, love, and everything in between then maybe you're in the right place.

Basically, this is an account of our lives in Japan. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

A Beautiful Beginning

From the Lovely Isle of Japan, Hajimemashite!
Here we have embarked on a journey through what could turn out to be the most life changing year of our young years. A catalyst perhaps for what is famously known as the rest of our lives. So while we scramble on through this fast becoming interesting chapter in life, we've decided to dedicate some time to sharing a little slice of this pie. Who knows what flavour will be dished up at any given time, but know it will be the truth, the lies, the inbetweens and the stuff that just doesn't rightly make any sense. But it is our thoughts as coherent (or most likely incoherent) as they are and even if they turn out only to be a pile of very interesting nothing, at any rate, they are bound to amuse someone as much as they amuse us. And it's proof that we still have thoughts and always will. And who knows, you might actually start to enjoy the bizarre twists and turns too. That is, if you're lucky enough to have an off switch for the more rational part of your brain. If not, you can get an off switched installed free at (highly recommended)
Otherwise, enjoy! From here on, the madness has been set free!
This has been Mochi and I'm sure soon enough my counterpart in mental crime will make an appearance too. If you hear from Melon, you'll know you found her.
