Domo Chat  

Priceless Information  

This is Ian's piece of web. See it go. Go, weblog, go! Go travel in Asia. Go study in Tokyo. Go home to Portland. Nah, what the hell. Go, study in Beijing.

Stop. I am a student studying Chinese language in Beijing.

I started this weblog in the Summer of 2002. It keeps following me wherever I go. But, I'm glad to have the company.

Thanks to Clifton for hosting Domodomo. If you need a flash or website designer, you can do no better.

Domoblog - My old Tokyo mobile weblog.

Domo Music - Music I done made. Shockingly presented under the artist name of "Domo Domo."

My caddy ain't blingin

There's a word for poor in Japanese, it's daigakusei (college student). I'm a student again, and I'd forgotten how it felt to be in poverty. But it's all coming back to me. And luckily I'm a quick learner! I eat onigiri; all the time. I spend most my time in coffee houses pretending to drink empty cups of coffee. Back in the golden years of employment I used to casually go to a restaraunt and pay ten dollars for a meal. Now a 500yen bowl of ramen is only for special occasions. People are free, mostly, so I try to enjoy their company. It's easy make friends when you're a foreigner. I am the walking talking token white guy. Stick the key in my back, wind me up, and I might do a little dance. I think people are basically good. Meeting people is odd though. We mutually use each other, maybe for language study, maybe to pass the time. As to real friendship, that's a tricky one ain't it? To be continued...
