Japanese too!

August 18, 2010

Okay, we have spoken about me learning Finnish/Suomi but did you know that Ms. Skirt speaks Japanese? Mr. Pants said that he wanted to learn it and she started studying with him and teaching him things and answering questions. She said there is a lot that she has forgotten and some things that she never learned at all. So they often study together and now I am learning it as well. It’s kinda fun, I wonder if I can take the JLPT level 5 when they take it. Above are really pretty Hiragana and Katakana charts. We have to learn all of this plus 100 Kanji. I better get busy!

Finnish Lesson Two

August 18, 2010

Mr. Pants (the beau)  made this for us to use to learn some new vocabulary. For the record I like learning new things but it was interesting to watch, right when Ms. Skirt (Mommy) was ready and trying to give up on the longer and harder to pronounce words, Mr. Pants was very encouraging and repeated the word slowly syllable by syllable and guess what happened! She got it! I was impressed with both of them and very glad that I couldn’t talk. Suomi words past 4 letters long are asking a bit much from my brain right now.. wait, do I even have a brain? I guess I must seeing that I am learning things. In addition to the flashcard to get Ms. Skirt use to the sound of Suomi she learned the song Sama Nainen by Chisu. 
Once Ms. Skirt listened to the song a few times she made a big mistake. She sang it for him and every since then she has to sing to him every night before he goes to bed.  At first I thought this was a bad thing until one night I stayed up later then normal and overheard him reading to her before she went to bed, so I guess it all works out in the end. And now I am a little jealous Ms. Skirt doesn’t read to me at night, but she does kiss my cheek before she leaves for the day. *shrugs* I’m not sure how I feel yet or what it is that I want out of this relationship. So far Ms. Skirt isn’t a bad parent/owner she’s growing daily and I am enjoying the ride thus far.

Finnish Lesson One

August 18, 2010

Today we started learning Finnish because mommy’s new beau (she hopes) is Finnish and he has been teaching her Finnish and since she is learning now I am learning too. Finnish Alphabets is where she started and since I was beside her, I of course, spoke along. Finnish is called Suomi. It is written with western alphabets plus a few special characters with two dots over them called umlauts. These are the hardest letters to pronounce of all the Suomi letters. Language School is one of the sites that she has looked at as well as recipes and living in Finland.

Hello World!

June 17, 2010



Ya’ante! Tervetuloa! Ohayou Gozaimasu! Asalama alaikum! 
I’ve recently been adopted by a wonderful, talkative, creative woman named Andromeda. I was sitting in the warehouse waiting for a home and Andromeda wanted me. My new mommy is into so many cool and different things, as I spend time with her I get to see more and more of the rest of the big wide world. Andromeda is not quite what I expected, but that is not a complaint. I had no idea that I would become a princess and have to be educated in so many diverse areas. Upon arrival we watched Japanese anime, a Bollywood movie called Aaja Nachle and learned about acupuncture. I thought my tea party skills would cover anything, but with this new mommy everyday is a new chance to see and learn something that my mind hadn’t even conceived of yet… she is the epitome of a global citizen. When asked what her ethnicity is she prefers to say human or other, can a color really sum up all the parts of an individual or place someone that speaks Japanese and Hindi as strictly African American? I don’t understand the American classification system, what happens if you are biracial or quad-racial? Does the one drop rule still apply? These are things that we never heard of at the Doll Academy… As you can see she has opened my eyes to quite a lot of things, right out of the box! She is currently running errands and I am at home doing my homework! Join me as I learn all these new things!
