Wahaha. Yesterday, after working out (It's so hard not to write an angry post about how people at the gym and people at a movie theater do they exact same thing) and studying, I met up with Yuuki. He has an English speaking and writing test today and wanted to practice his conversation skills. I have to talk? Me?
I asked if he wanted to walk to Kaldi Coffee Farms (A small Heaven with Natural Peanut butter) since we had talked about it before and he hadn't been to the one here yet. So, off we were, talking up a typhoon. Ohhh, I shouldn't say that.
Yuuki had never tried natural peanut butter before so he picked up a jar ^___^. Wahaha, he has been converted. Unless he doesn't like it. IMPOSSIBLE.
We walked around the store and talked about the random items available. I got him a Cadbury chocolate bar. He had never had Cadbury before! It's weird because people in Japan seem to really love bakery goods, but don't eat a lot of sweets like candy bars. Man, there are so many bakeries around.
We continued walking and chatting and found a little grocery store along the way. He was telling me about the different foods there, like this tongue:
|Remember him from "The Mummy"?|
About a week ago at lunch with Yuuki, Shota, and Mitchell, we were talking about Halloween. They brought up this chocolate egg that you break open and find a toy inside. "WHERE. CAN I FIND THIS?"
We found them here! MARIO STYLE.
Bah! lololol, okay. Move closer to the penguin, Yuuki.
After this grocery store, I had told Yuuki how I wanted to find an OK! discount market. It's usually 3 stories and has a ton more choices than the market I go to. He said he know where one was so we headed there! It's so close. I couldn't believe I missed it before. I picked up some lamb meat there and pears for really cheap. ^___^
I learned a lot from Yuuki, like random words like 貧血, or "hinketsu" for "anemia." That was really awesome to learn because I knew "貧" meant something like "shortage, without, poor" and "血" meant "blood." Put those together and bam! Anemia! That's the only time I'll ever get excited about anemia.
He also taught me about how nato, niboshi (dried sardines), and other foods are good for you and what foods were like anko, made from azuki beans. Eff yeah, nutrition. Also, he said Grant and I had Mitarashi Dango the other day. Those were the mochi balls on a stick.
On our way back, I had asked how he studied English and if he used flashcards. He busted a bunch out and I quizzed him ^___^. Some of the words were pillow, funeral, punctual, down to earth, etc. He told me that pillow fights were mandatory on field trips if you had to sleep over somewhere. WHAT? Mandatory pillow fights?! What is this magical place?
After quizzing him for a bit, Yuuki and I went our separate ways. I cooked the lamb and it was pretty good. Kinda greasy tasting, so I'm not sure how often I would actually eat lamb. Of course, I looked up the nutrition facts as I was eating it. lolol. Great protein niacin, and B12. Higher calorie, sodium, and saturated fats. Just in case you were wondering.
Today, I'm thinking about going out and take actual quality pictures around town with my good camera. I mean...my ipod's camera is great. I'd definitely enter its pictures in contests, no photoshop needed. <___<
lololol. And I'll definitely study, too.
I'm fer eeking pumped for the package my mum sent me. Oh yeah! Yesterday, I got to video chat with Lauren and Beth for a long time. ^____^ I love Lauren's hair and am zo jelly! I miss my red hair so much >___<. Just like my hat.
I think my favorite part was when Shawn ninja'd in the camera's view here and there.
