VietNam no gunjin datta toki, ni kai itta koto ga aru. Sore ato, mata san kai itta koto ga aru. Tokyo no Setagayaku ga yoku shite imasu. Ainku ga, atchi ni sunde imasen deshita. Hi, I'm Lou. Because my studies need some kind of a boost, I've opened the weekly Scripps Ranch meeting. If you have time on Wednesdays, please join in! While being a soldier in Vietnam, I visited Tokyo twice. After that, I went back three more times. I knew Setagayaku pretty well. It's a shame, but I never lived there.
Ma, ne! Boku no Nihongo no hoo hoo o hanasoo. Daigaku kara, sotsugyoo shita mae ni, go-gaku to kokubun-gaku o yoku benkyoo shita n desu. Jissei wa, CSULB kara, Japanese language no "minor" o totta. Sono choodo koro, jikoryuu de benkyoo shimashita. Well! I'll explain. Before graduating from CSULB, I studied Japanese language and culture. In fact, I received a minor in the language. Since that time, I just studied on my own.
Ara! Joodan desu ka? Shikashi, tsuma to mago ga ippai motte imasu. What! Is that a joke? However, my wife and grandkids have a bunch.
I'm a NARUTO fan too! Butr I only watch in Japanese and I am very behind on episodes. Last time I watched was probably in 2006. :-( Do you have copies or know where I can just catch up? I'd like to borrow or watch with someone else who enjoys it (in Japanese, of course). I am a major Hello Kitty fan too and have many items!
Hello Lou! So sorry for the late reply; didn't see your comment there. Uh thank you for the e-mail address but I think it is better for me to meet the person first then to e-mail him. Anyways, I have been busy, Tuesdays and Thursdays are beyond stressful for me, that is why I could not join you. By the way, my e-mail is [masked]. I think you added one extra letter. Anyways, hope to see you soon!
Can't make it tonight. Let's get together soon.
Konnichiwa, Lou-san. Meetup ni renshuu o shi ni itai desu. Konshuu no meetup ni ikenakatta kara gomen nasai. Mondai ga attan desu.
