My Japanese Age Rule

5 02 2008

Over 20, Subtract 4 years. Under 20 Add 2 years. While it’s not fool-proof, it will get you close. It’s that simple. When you meet someone for the first time, and your mind is still wrestling with compartmentalizing their good and bad points, age will enter the picture at some point. When that happens and you, subtract 4 years or add 2 years, depending on what your original guess was. Take it to the bank. This will stop you from being as shocked as I am on a weekly basis. High school seniors seriously look 15-16, and 3o year olds always look like thier in their early 20’s. If someone looks over 40, call the morgue.

New Manager today. She one of those bubbily Japanese people, which is cool. Always in a good mood. Plus she lives in my building, so that’s a person to go to Fukuoka with for any company parties. Not particularly hot though, but ultimately thats better for the workplace isnt it lol.
She looks about using my own formula, she is 24. I will find out tommorrow. She is very relaxed in her rules which is good. She seems very accepting of whatever I want to do, as long as I get the job done, which is all you can ask of from any boss.

Japanese of the Day….3 different verbs for (break)(and another im not sure how to use)

oru, kowareru, and waru. 

折る(おる)means pushed past the limit – Leg would be a better example but this is funnier;(Watashi wa)kao o otta. I broke my face. かおをおった.

割る (わる) means shatter into pieces. A Glass is the best example. – (Watashi wa)kuppu o watta. I broke the glass. コップをわった。

壊れる(kowareru) means break like a computer. So computer will work. – (Watashi wa)Konpyuta wo kowaretta. I broke the computer. コップをこわれた。

One of coworker’s students got me a present today! It was sooo nice. She remembered from my welcome party that I said my apartment is cold. Sooooo she bought me a Yukata Robe…. which looks sort of like this….

 <— the dude is all business

But it was so nice. Everyone told me it’s a really nice one too so even better!

I haven’t put it one yet though since I had to ride my bike home in probably the worst weather of all time.

 <–“like anyone could even know that…you suck”

It’s sooooo cold and soooooo rainy. It’s like God/Zeus/Science decided not to put the effort into making snow, so they thought insane rain would suffice. My umbrella exploded all over my face twice WHILE on my bike. The insane down-up-sideways pour of rain pretty much made the umbrella useless anyways. Sooo my robe got crazy wet. Good thing I have a drye…..oops.

Tomorrow is a party for the company which should be a cool all-night sort of night. We will see what happens. Maybe meet some cool people. Maybe interact with coworker. Maybe be a complete bust. But I will do my best to make sure I have a good time. Bottom Line.

Japanese of the Day: Let’s use yukata since its already in this article and I’m lazy.

The wet robe is on the hanger…..bitch.

nureta yukata wa hanga ni aru……….ama.
