Japan Trip Summary pt. II: Lost in Translation

Day 5, Monday: Kyoto Again

So it was only on returning to Kyoto the previous day that I realized how close I was staying to the old imperial palace and I thought this would be a good day to see it. It turned out to be in the center of a very large park that had once been part of a much larger area belonging to various nobles and high ranking people. The palace itself was monstrously huge, covered a large area, and had a great big wall around it. Sadly, the palace itself did not open...

Japan Trip Summary pt. I: Guilty Pleasures

Posted August 26th, 2011 at 2:28 PM by Esper (The Uncarved Blog)

So if you didn't know I spent the last week in Japan. Ostensibly I was there for a friend's wedding in Kyoto, but since that was only going to be one day and I didn't expect she'd have any free time my trip was mostly about me and doing the things I wanted to do.

Here's a rundown of the first 4 days from my 8 day trip.

Day 1, Thursday: The Long Lost Apartment

So I leave San Francisco in the middle of the day. The plane is actually early into Kansai International...

I’ve leaving for Japan tomorrow for a week in Kyoto and Osaka and the shopping is going to be fantastic. Oh yeah, and all that cultural stuff, too. I have saved almost every penny from my last 5 or 6 months of paychecks for this trip so I can buy anything I find that I want.

This is gonna be the best trip ever.

Don’t miss me too much. :D

P.S. dsfagagdaffs I hate flying and 13 hours of it is going to be hell. Dx

The thread I didn't make

Posted August 12th, 2011 at 1:02 PM by Esper (The Uncarved Blog)

So, after thinking about what could make OC a better/more active area I came up with this half-thought out idea for something new, buuutttt... I thought it was too silly and I was just not going to post it. However, I decided I'd post it here rather than delete it like I normally would because... why not? Maybe someone would find it interesting or useful somehow. And I haven't added anything to my blog for a while.


Tryin' to add something different...

Trolleys, maths, Ebonics, and more stuff about language

Before I start what will surely be a very long post, let me say that I love languages. I love learning them, reading about them, listening to them. My biggest regret in college was not going for a linguistics degree because I didn't realize I could until it was too late.

So I'm bringing up this topic because of two things. One was an article I saw on the BBC news website where Britons got to complain about their least favourite Americanisms and the other was something someone at work...
