An evil cold caught me and I was sick for a week, but I ate a few truck loads of garlic, so I'm OK! Unfortunately the cold caused me to miss one of my Japanese lessons, so I can only tell you about the one before and the one after that. The latter one taking place today. If you read the previous universal blog ( about 10 blogs back ) you'll know what a great start I had at the university. It just gets better. Read.
The week before last we were scheduled to watch a Japanese movie called "The women descends the stairs" ( or something similar ). Due to one of the teachers having suddenly disappeared there was no movie, and instead we were forced to listen to a lecture about the differences in Japanese and European social behavior ( still interesting stuff though ). Anyhow, today, teacher (1) apologized for having blamed teacher (2) for not being there, since teacher (1) had apparently received an email from teacher (2) but not had the patience to read through it and had just taken notice to the first sentence that stated something like "will be happy to supply the movie..." and then moved on to other email reading without seeing the "but I'm going to Italy next week, so it'll have to be some other time". LOL.
Today we were all set to watch Double Suicide, an old Japanese comedy/drama from 1969. The movie was present, and there was no trouble with the regional or computer settings, so the teachers started the movie and left. Then, about 20 minutes into the movie a screensaver kicks in and when a student goes up to the computer to mouse it away it turns out that the "teacher" has been logged out as well. Oh well. A few students ran out to catch up to the teachers and get them back to the classroom. It all worked out eventually and the movie was great, but I really am having trouble understanding how messy the university I'm attending to is. It's just like being back in highschool then. Not that I'm complaining about it, it's just amusing. :)
Next movie will be next week, lets see what happens then. On a title related note me and a new scripting buddy of mine are working on a neat game with the same name. It will be GREAT! Now, if you'll excuse me, I have my first great big test next week, so it's time for studies.
