more silly japanese TV

just a quick update on japanese TV. there are only about a dozen channels. 1,2,3,4,6,8,10, and 12 are the only public ones, and 5,7,9,11 are cable. my house picks up the neighbors 5 and 9. so, funny things i have seen on TV recently. jackie chan in japanese, hot flying korean girls. that korean show is hilarious. pity it is in korean, but it has japanese subtitles. I watched the return of the king dubbed into japanese, that was funny, lots of baseball, and this one show called the adventures of odenkun. kun is a suffix used with friends, and oden is a traditional japanese food. oden kun has a friend called something like daikun, which is a joke on daikon, which is a japanese radish. speaking of jokes, I dont know any japanese jokes that I could translate into english and would make sense.
here is one that doesnt make sense
ichi tatsu ichi wa?
(whats one plys one)
tanbo no ta
(a rice field)
it is a kanji thing

hey peter, what's going on! Sorry I've taken some time getting onto your blog, but I forgot the web address over spring break. Anyway, I hope you're having an awesome time - it seems from the blog that you are. Everything here is the same: zero period is somewhat tiresome, chemistry is still the reason why my monday nights are interminable, and physics, well, you know how physics is. Just checking in to say howdie,

Austin is a horrible person. Don't let him post this kind of thing on your blog. I can't wait until Austin starts getting heart palpitations.

As for you, keep surviving in Japan. We're here for you, and Mr. Curry misses you dearly. Halpern...doesn't really. But time will show his true feelings.

Stay safe,
