Japanese boys.

Japanese boys are, well, I dont really know how to describe them. Of course you cant describe all of them at the same time, but they are absolutely nuts. I will only talk about a couple odd occurances here. First, I was standing in the cafeteria (called the canteen (sp?)) at school, and was eating my ice cream, when these two middle school third years (the equivalent to a freshman in highschool) come up to me. I have talked with these particular two several times before, and from looking at them, I would have called them pretty cool, not at all like little kids. Whoops. One of them walks up to me, and without saying anything, starts to play with my hair. He pets it, floofs it, runs his fingers through it, and just usually hair things. Meanwhile, I stand there, with a straight face, eating my ice cream, for about a minute, and then I burst out laughing. He doesnt say anything, he just walks off.
Just a quick comment on the 'cool' thing. One of the other American exchange students, Chris, told me about a kid at his school, who is really popular, handsome, a super break dancer, and has a Stitch stuffed animal on his cellphone. The Japanese have some odd fetish with Stitch. What ever happened to Lilo? Doesnt her name come first in the movie title?
Two, I was coming home on the train last night, and there were these two highschools, with somewhat spiked hair, sagging, loose ties, and just sorta 'chillin' on the train. One of them sees me, laughs, whispers something to his friend, and waves at me. They were standing about 15 feet away from me, and they just waved. They didnt say anything, they just made silly gestures. Then, when the train was nearing my stop, I stood up straight, and they just stared. One of them starting making hand signals meaning that I was really tall. I passed them as I walked off the train, and said in Japanese that I was 190 cm tall. They looked really really shocked.
Thats all I can think of right now, but I will post more when I think of them.

I exchanged my emergency American today, which means I am sort of in the clear, I have about 8000 yen, but I dont know if it will last me until my new card arrives.

ps. Chris, can you think of any other funny Japanese teenage boy stories

Haha, ya, I have had alot of wierd experiences with Japanese guys :)

But ya, more or less the fact that Japanese high school students act a lot less mature than their American counterparts.

Like you said, there are a ton of people with Disney characters hanging off their cell phones, like the guys who were hanging out at this one party at my school, drinking beer, but playing with their cell phones that had a huge Stitch hanging from it.

But ya, the oddest thing I've heard about was an experience from Erick, where he was just sitting in class, and out of Nowhere, one kid stands up, makes an upside down V with his arms, and shouts "I'm Tokyo Tower!" and then sit back down in the middle of class.
Strange stuff, this country ^^
