|After a somewhat comically tragic day (I sliced open my ankles on my business shoes, I had to deal with three vile self-loving Canadians for three hours of meetings, I had two horrible introductory classes, I am supervised by Himmler, I spent an hour and forty minutes commuting home, I had to change trains 4 times, I had my bike towed away, and I got rained on before getting to the safety of home), I decided to post these cheery little pictures.||Of all the tiny little photos I could have chosen, I had to have the most recent because Shin's masterful posing is sheer genius. Good times, good times.||As Rhod's coworker mentioned, yes I do seem to have my eyes closed in each picture. This is mainly because the fluorescent lighting could blind you at fifty paces, and also because I am stinking drunk. Come on, the only reason anyone but highschool girls would get into one of these bizarre alien photobooths is if they were drunk or held at gun point. Still, you can do lots of fancy things with them, like super-imposing your faces into a pot of stew...classy.|
“Vile, self-loving Canadians”? Surely not! They’re all lovely, aren’t they? At least, that’s what people who have never lived in Vancouver keep trying to tell me every time I have the temerity to make a negative comment…. Hope the ankles have healed (ow).

Aside from Canada not being a real country (don’t get me started), all the Canadians I have yet met in Japan have been so self-righteous and superior that I have often wondered about the country itself. Now I am not saying all Canadians are like this, just the dozen or so I have met. Maybe it is a teacher thing…or the freakishness of most foreigners in Japan.
My student pronunciation is horrifying me already. Now looking logically at words, often you understand how Americans got there from the English. But what were Canadians doing?
Ankles well healed, but not my desire to quit any job that involves being treated like a pet. Actually, I might prefer being treated like a pet for real. Maybe I could be a mascot. Thoughts?
