    Your dashing blond looks reminded her of someone else and gave her unpleasant flashbacks to when she first started out in Japan:

    Never actually been to Suma beach. I'm a a little further west, near the bridge. The beaches are emptying out now...jellyfish season.

    Showing us why wearing UniClo isn't as fashionable in Japan as it is elsewhere in the world; same goes for him turning the rest of us off of turtleneck sweaters forever and ever.


    The deluded guy really does believe that the word 'gaijin' is a racial epithet on the same level as 'nigger':
    http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-b...0080805ad.html

    But, 'Jap' ain't so bad. Debito could not understand that the children's classic Little Black Sambo was about a smart little East Indian kid (dot - no feather) and not an African or African-American. When a Japanese publisher released a re-print of Little Black Sambo, it triggered his hair-trigger 'that's racist!' spazz-button and he created "CHIBU KIIRO JAPPU" or "The Little Yellow Jap":
    [​IMG]

    And, since renouncing his US citizenship, he no longer goes by "David Aldwinckle" - that's his "slave name". He now goes by Debito Arudou. So when his estranged parents understandably continued to address him as "Dave" or "David" he flew into a rage claiming psychological butthurt for not using his Japanese Dances with Wolves moniker. Funnily enough, the rest of his family - his Japanese ex-wife and his two daughters - don't talk to him much anymore but chose to hang with his parents in the US. So like, either they're all stir-shit crazy as he claims -or, he's the headcase? Hmmm.

    Good Ol Debito, gives the gaijin community a black eye by being an over reactionary rights activist.

    First day of school today, over 200 new foreign students this semester. Most all are in the OMG IM IN TOKYO phase, and obviously have not learned to conform, so they are loud, smelly (its so fuckin humid, and my school now smells like an arm pit despite being air conditioned), and have a constant look of confusion on their faces.

    Are you precise with your time?

    How did you fight the temptation to get off the train at Suma and have a beer just to enjoy the view?

    Gaijin, please. We don't need to get off the train to drink beer. Haha. And I prefer this view: [​IMG]

    Back to gaijin stories:

    So, a couple of weeks ago I was visiting the HQ of a major Japanese company and I saw a group of gaijin wearing shorts and t-shirts with a few of them sporting tattoos. I asked the manager guy I was with who they were and he said they were from one of their European subsidiaries and they were visiting Japan to receive some award for good performance. I asked him what he thought of their clothes as all of the Japanese workers at the company were wearing suits or "summer biz" semi-casual clothes. He said it was strange that they didn't have any concept of "when in Rome" but that it was acceptable for them to dress like that because they weren't Japanese. I asked him what he would do if his junior staff showed up in shorts with tattoos and he said that it was a stupid question because it would simply never happen.

    Then I asked him what he would really think if those Europeans had all arrived in black suits brandishing business cards and bowing profusely, Japanese stylee. He laughed and admitted that it would look absurd. He said, "I suppose that we Japanese need to learn that when in Rome we should act like Romans but it is best for the gaijin to act like gaijin".

    Japan never fails to fascinate.

    The dolphins are pink because their capillaries are close to their skin.
