I just need some understanding ... and some calpis
Ever wonder why my English is so whacky? Well ... here is a site that show you a fraction of what I have to read and see everyday!

http://www.engrish.com/index.html

Yes, the site is set up as a ... joke, I guess, but actually it's so true it's not even funny. About 7 years ago I did some copywritting for a an advertisement company. I spent 3 hours working on 2 sentences. I took their engrish and struggled to maintain the same nuances and even triple checked the Japanese -- needless to say, I never did get any more work from that company. My English wasn't engrish! !!!

Tongue and here we have Prince Charles complaining about the bastardization of English by the yanks ! I wonder if he'd go bonkers in Japan !!!


hmmm ... I wonder if thomas has this in his directory yet?

openoffice + gimp + sketch ... Smile
