On a scale of 1-10 (japanese scale) she is probbably a 8.

Hmm. It's one thing, I think, to belittle her best effort because it is wrong. It's another to find it amusing because it is, well, an irretrievably amusing mistake (kind of cute at that, almost conveniently so...). To paraphrase a great internet sage, I laughed when I first saw that, I meant it, and I won't insult anyone's intelligence by claiming otherwise. That said, assuming that the person in that picture is the person quoted (and I have my doubts, old and wily as I am, in Internet years at least), I'm not belittling her. Utmost props for exposing her not quite perfect, but surely hard-won, English to the slings and arrows of outrageous gaijin. I've made much more amusing slips, both of the tongue and of the IME, in Japanese, and I will again.

But, speaking of Friends, did you catch the girl who was on a few days ago with the sort of curly hair down around her face? Errm- I agree that the girl you mention is cute, but that girl was just really amazing. I'm not an Asian fetishist, at least not in that sense (the best that could be said is that I am omnivorous when it comes to my taste in women), but she was almost enough to make me reconsider.

I think its ok to laugh at funny sounding English as long as your not making fun of the person. I've been laughed at for funny sounding Japanese even by my teacher and she wasn't laughing at me but what I said and when I realized what it was, I joined in the laughter. It's good to laugh sometimes.

Btw, what had happened was I tried to say "I think I passed my finals because they were pretty easy" but I wound up saying "I think I passed my finals because I am a bag". Now I'll never confuse 簡単 with かばん again :D.
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Aha! So, this is the background of me being asked if my avator was real me?!
I am slowly catching up with the long history of this forum...

Laugh away! My best friend laughs at my Janglish -- she thinks my Japanese expressions get mixed up with my little knowledge of English, and she finds it very ammusing. Hey, I am happy if I can cause someone to laugh. Laughter is a key to a healthy life. :D

I believe "hubba hubba" is a phrase suitable to the occasion.

I have to admit I sometimes wonder if the people in the ads are *real* people in the program... Cause I'm all lonely and well.... y'know.

Bad 16th century samurai, bad!
I would never have imagined you saying something like "hubba hubba" well mayber "fubba fubba"

Hey girls love people from different centuries, and beign an author should get you some credit aswell.

Well, Arbalest71, it's lucky for you that you cannot see the wrinkles on that tiny picture... you won't be saying hubba-hubba if you saw the wrinkles. B)

Ashitaka, I liked your previous avator better. You were deffinitely sexier then... ;)

I made the mistake of making my picture public once, online. I immediately got swarmed by a fairly frightening contingent of online high school girls. I am still a bit scared.

I also have several rather firm invitations in Tokyo, as a result, so... The funny thing isd that I'm not all that good looking, really.

eee, you underestimate me. Your picture not only displays beauty, it shows character. I'm old enough to care more about the latter than the former. Hubba ;)
