a euphemism for "Jesus"

From webster's dictionary...

『Someone holding the attitude implied in the song became known as a "jingo" or "jingoist," and the attitude itself was dubbed "jingoism." The "jingo" in the tune is probably a euphemism for "Jesus."』

from now one we starte everything with...

Well 'm sure i could build a steamliner out of the rollercoaster of emotions 've been devouring track by track in the past few forevers. Actually i shouldn't nearly be so negative...i should try and think happy thoughts and rub pixie dust all over myself (that would certainly explain the gay bars).

I had my first date (or would it be a first date in Japan; why in America it would be an anniversary) with Liz on Friday and i wooed her to sleep with dashing talls of my goldfish and certain people i could name. We watched movies where teanagers get drunk and assist aliens in a game of miniature golf or perhaps one of those who-raped-who comedy thrillers. I was at peace with my suroundings and felt no need for an alarm-clock. Fold the curtains Clark, i'm in my happy place.

Earlier that day i reached deep into my pit of teen rebellion by belting out let's-think-of-the-old-days Enkah for two hundred heavily medicated seventy and eighty year olds, after recalling a frightful walk in the local parkery during which a pair of feral crows made several dives for my eyes and perhaps even my left testicle. The testicle theory, though, I failed to mention to the elderly entourage.

This weekend I went from the summer cottage of ire (as performed on the intersection of street what-not and unknown-kanji) to the secluded bathhouses of good-stuffs; a firm stance on celibacy to conversations such as "you should get yourself a sex goldfish"...from now on we start everything with 凸凹。。。

Is contrary to the fact...

Well I'm generally having some rough times; but rather than weep my heart out to the blank faces of America, Japan, and half of Australia...I think this excerpt from my college japanese 202 text book grammar lesson does it best.

-This pattern, a conditional sentence followed by よかった, which literally means 'was\had been good', expresses the speaker's regret for something that actually happened or did not happen to him. S1 is something that involves the speaker and is contrary to the fact.-

I was out...of ideas

In honor of my friends recently, and consequetially erased, post I would like a post a song I shall, from hence fourth, consder to by my theme song of Japan. While the wicked trumpet of the Green Hornet was a sufficient backdrop to my Nippon antics I think this They Might Be Giants diddy does it best...think of the Stalk of Wheat as Japan...

Stalk of Wheat
They Might Be Giants

I went for a walk (on a stalk)
On a stalk of wheat
And it felt like a trillion feet

I was looking for a friend (at the end)
At the end of the line
And it took me 'till the end of time

I was all out of luck (like a duck)
Like a duck that died
I was all out of juice (like a moose)
Like a moose denied
I was all out of money like a bunny that's broke
I was all out of work like a jerk who's a joke
and I was out of ideas like I is, like I is, like I is, like I is
I was out...of ideas

I once had a dream (of a gleam)
Of a gleam in my eye
And I'll have 'till the day I die

I had a thought bubble (of trouble)
Of trouble and strife
And I'll have it for the rest of my life

I was all out of luck (like a duck)
Like a duck that died
I was all out of juice (like a moose)
Like a moose denied
I was all out of money like a bunny that's broke
I was all out of work like a jerk who's a joke
and I was out of ideas like I is, like I is, like I is, like I is
I was out...of ideas

女子問題かな~

"Fine Alice, you just go piss our money away on booze and Pachinko. I can't do anything to stop you; after all you wear the pants in this family."

"Damn it Fred, they're cleats! and you damned well know they are!"
