I know you post these with love, but as a linguist, I wonder what the Joe-isms are committed in Japanese. 😁
(I’ve committed my share of Gilder-isms in Spanish, such as the mental block that had me saying “204” instead of “2004” ten years ago in Barcelona.)
Akemi looks like she is dressed and ready for dog walker in Toronto…
and I think its nice of you to learn new things(your girlfriend says), and teach us, I love it !! I hope you have these in a book, a best seller. These are certainly cute and make sense. Go Tim Horton (my coffee of choice)! Have a great day!!
Bailey: Thank you! I’ll pass it on.
Some of those Akemi-isms make perfect sense, like Melancholy syndrome = depression.
Hope you both have fun this weekend!
I had a friend from Poland who said “munk chip” for chipmunk.
Just saw this on the news: http://news.yahoo.com/volcano-erupts-japan-injuries-reported-053344700.html
I pray all of Akemi’s family are ok!
I’m stealing lettucehead. Not just for letters but for all around name-calling. 😀
Akemi, you rock! ,
I quite like melancholy syndrome.
I love Akemi more and more every day… Cheers, Chev
A volcano erupted in Japan??? Again, “live under a rock” syndrome and I haven’t watched the news.
