Say What?

There are literally so many weird uses of English here, you couldn't keep up if you tried. Some are honest mistakes in translation. But then there are others...

If you've ever been to Engrish, you know what I'm talking about.

Anyway, today we got up early and went to the fish market. It sounds less exciting than it actually is. I think the fish market here is one of the world's largest and it's extremely colorful and noisy. Plus there is just the insanity factor of being up at 5 am, in a fish market, in a foreign country where you understand very little of the language.

After that, it was a slow start today. We headed out way after lunch and ended up at the Toto showroom. Toto, you may or may not, make toilets. Yes, we went to a Japanese toilet showroom. And it was cool. The best toilet I saw had a remote flusher/paper stand and the lid automatically flips up as you approach it. It also has about a zillion different settings to wash your butt after you do the deed. I want.

We then walked around a while, did some more shopping, took some pictures, etc., etc. Good times, good times.

I realized today, I'm firmly on vacation time. I thought it was Tuesday.

Speaking of forgetting time, I think this happened a couple of days ago. It was in Kyoto, that much I know.


Jet Jaguar wanted me to post that. He rubbed the statue for luck.

By the way, we are leaving Japan in a couple of days, so please put your orders in now for Humping Dogs USB flash drives.

That first pic makes me think of Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. . . "It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hoese again. . ."

And just how much are those humping dog flash drives???
