Ichi nichi.

So I'm finally taking a beginners Japanese conversation class. It's actually very small since it's an adult ed. class at night. It will last for 8 weeks and there are only 8 students, including my husband and myself. The teacher informed us that what we're learning is what kindergartners and 1st graders learn in Japan. Considering the class is only 2-1/2 hours long I'm surprised at how much I've learned. Because we learned about onegai shimasu and how to properly use the term, like when ordering something, I waited until after class to ask about what my Japanese "friend" told me. He said if ordering something like wanting a glass of water the best term would be "O mizu wo itadake masuka?" It's the most polite way, which is usually what he likes to teach me. Another polite way is "O mizu arimasuka?" When I asked her if "O mizu wo itadake masuka?" was still appropriate her eyes grew big and she said that it's a very formal way and not something if you were in a regular restaurant. <_<;; I'm still have problems with my r sounds. I make the r too strong and when I try not to I tend to roll the r and put a Spanish spin on it. XD

Right now it's a love/hate relationship. There are two girls in the class, one is in junior high and one in high school. They are annoying, so very annoying. The teacher passed around a book that had a lot of different stories in it that she uses when teacher younger students. The first story was with Mr. Toad. If you don't know Mr. Toad is a Disney character and if you've been to Disneyland then you can go on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. When I said something about it the younger girl made a comment about how she didn't know who that was. I told her that it's a character from like the 80's or something. She then rolled her eyes and said, "Well I'm only 13." Yeah I felt like ringing her neck. Is ignorance ever a valid excuse, especially when it's based on your age?

So my husband and I have been watching Shugo Chara. The summary didn't say anything about it being a magical girl series. I like Su the best, but the blue egg has the best magical girl outfit and the fact someone else is trying for world domination. It's a knock off of the Care Bear Stare though, the magical girl changes and the plot shouldn't take more then 25 episodes, but does pretty much sucks. And why hasn't Amu figured out yet that if she just does the Care Bear Stare she will win? Why try anything else? It kind of reminds me of DBZ too since her friends are a worthless group. I think tonight we'll try a different anime since Amu is driving me a bit crazy. My husband has realized what I felt like when I watched Naruto though and stupid Sakura. Complete waste of space. Bring in the obviously in the closet gay guy and kill the dumb girl off! (You know the guy that wears a half shirt, skin tight clothes and makes fun of Naruto's penis size. XD)

The Dinner Party.

Well I had put off writing a blog about my dinner party because it ticked me off like no tomorrow whenever I thought about it. Have I cooled off yet? Not really which is why this will be a very short blog. Pretty much nothing went right. Nothing was done correctly and thankfully since none of my guests had planned it they didn't know what a huge screw up it was. They all had a good time which I'm glad they did since then I would have been really pissed if the mistakes ruined their fun. Well let's start at the beginning shall we?

So I had my dinner in the Sun Room at Wawona Hotel in Yosemite National Park. I recommend their restaurant, but I won't ever be having an event there again. First off, I've never seen so many Asians since I went to UC Davis when deciding which college I wanted to go to. Ok, San Francisco in China Town or Japan Town is a very close second. :) I've also learned that Mandarin doesn't always sound nice. I've been watching and rewatching It Started With a Kiss and I have Neng bu Neng and Say U Love me running through my head constantly. I think it's how harsh the men and women sounded. The people who sing have a very nice tone to their voice. It's hard to explain.

Since I really don't want to start bitching I'll just say the positive things. My guests were happy. They enjoyed themselves. I enjoyed myself when I got to mingle. I got to speak to our CCO's wife, she's really nice and fun to spend time with. I got to spend time with our VP's wife, she's a lot of fun too. I rarely see anyone away from work except one co-worker I go out to lunch with sometimes. There were two co-workers I invited and ended up being very glad they came. I'm not as close to them as the others and at first did it because of their status, but they were great fun and I'm really glad they made it. I wish I had been able to spend more time with all of them. I know my husband feels the same way about his co-workers, but because of some things done incorrectly it couldn't be helped.

The hors d'evours were great. The stuff mushrooms were gone in a flash, we should have ordered two sets of those. XD I wasn't too keen on the nasty ass long grain wild rice they served, but my guests raved about how delicious it was. I guess they like wild rice. I find it to be the bastard child of bark and rice myself. If I had known that was going to be our starch I would have picked something else. I liked the salad, but I still would have liked to try the cold melon and mint soup. I got vetoed on that wish by my husband and my mom. I got the "you're out of your mind" look from both of them when I suggested it. My mom said I should think about my guests and I said screw them I want the soup. I started laughing since I was just kidding, but the look on my mom's face was priceless since her next comment was, "I'm paying for it and I DON'T want COLD soup!"

The weather was nice. There had been some rain so it cooled the temp down to mid 85's. There was another event on the lawn and I was glad I wasn't them. I was surprised that everyone except for my relatives brought gifts. It was very odd since it's not like they didn't already get me something. My co-workers had bought us a crock pot, which I use a lot, and a George Grilling thing, which I also use a lot. My husband's work bought his a New Egg gift cert., which helped us upgrade our comps. XD Needless to say it was a very nice surprise to receive more gifts. I've been working on the thank you cards, but each time I'm almost done I'll notice I misspelled something. :/ I've ran out of my cards and am working on the second batch. I think I'll just send it no matter what this time around, even with spelling errors.

Well there's my nice version without any ranting or getting pissy. I will say this. My CCO commented on how my co-workers thought I was handling the stress well. My husband's co-workers thought I was freaking out. I was in the middle really. I wanted to have a nice time so I kept reminding myself I could freak out later. One of my co-workers noticed how hard I walk when I was upset. The more pissed I am the faster and harder I walk. I'm a woman on a mission and there's hell to be paid to someone! XD It also just proves that your view on someone can be totally different depending on how well they know you. They've seen me completely freaked out while his co-workers have only seen me at dinner parties, that I didn't have to control... *cough* I mean organize.
