    That was a fun read, Casey! :D

    You cracked me up with your mouse pad stains and lavender air freshener, you Martha-Stewart-Wanna-be, you! ;)

  2. Kansas Bob says:

    I think that I know your Taekwondo intructor … I’m with you on velcro – have some sandals with it.

    I don’t know about #25 :)

    Do you translate English into Japanese? What do you translate?

    @Michelle
    Martha-Stewart-Wanna-be? Ouch. :)

    @Bob
    I translate from Japanese to English. If I did it the other way, someone would always have to check my grammar. It’s one thing to understand what is being said, it’s another to be able to formulate your own thoughts in perfect grammar. Most of the translations I do is stuff like company brochures, webpages, business letters, etc. I also do manuals from time to time, but they’re boring, so I try to avoid them.
