December 1st, 1999
Got my first e-mail from Japan. My cyber empire knows no bounds. I conducted a quasi interview via e-mailed questions with the guy who claimed a dragon came up from the earth during the Kobe earthquake. His interpreter left a little to be desired in the English translation but he spoke English loads better than I speak Japanese (and to all of you out there looking at my grammar and shaking your heads, go jump in a lake.)
Maybe I should learn Japanese. I've always wanted to go to the land of the rising sun. Seems like it would be akin to going to another world since their culture is so different than ours.
I've bugged Lan enough till she's taught me how to cuss in Vietnamese. That always comes in handy when phone solicitors call. I just start screaming at them in Vietnamese until they hang up. I want to try it on Jehovah Witness's but they never come by. Maybe they know me to well. Maybe I'm on some anti-visitation list.
I'm babbling which means that 4 AM is no time to be writing rants for the world to read. To bed, to bed for tomorrow is another day and all that crap.
