Even moar photos of Engrish!

I swear, it never ends!

I never, ever seem to have time to write on my blog, either, and I have been wondering why.

It’s because I’m so, so busy trying to get all of these things that I want to do off of the ground. There is Denkiki (my manga), buttons, my Tenipuri assistant story, photography, and all while I’m trying to figure out exactly how I’m going to support myself in Hawaii. I really need to have something stable, or a lot more money put aside for it.

BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT? I NEED A BREAK! And this post about Engrish (whose photos have been ready for a while now) is exactly what I need! Well, that, and a good night’s sleep. And maybe a face mask. And a trip back to Japan to collect the rest of my things that a few friends are holding for me.

I do have a lot to talk to you about.

OH! Did I mention that you can now use your livejournal account to comment? I am super-excited about that! Maybe it will help me treat this more like I used to treat my livejournal: as a fun place to write down my feelings, thoughts, and experiences. With a ton of pictures.

Yes, a feely-update is definitely coming soon. For now, let’s enjoying le Engrish!


What is a sigh board, and where can I get one (that’s not just an Engrish mistake)? Is it like a little sign with a sweat drop on it that is attached to a stick? You hold it up when you’re all *siiiiiiiiiigh*.

I love the accent. It makes it all the more legible…

This is a shop that sells D-Boys merchandise (some of the Tenimyu casts were members of this idol group). I used to go all of the time, and always got a kick out of the sign!

I know, I know, it’s not Japanese. But still, this store’s name always makes me giggle like a little girl!

So… is a Glitzy Chest part of Total Beauty Produce?

This store in Harajuku always makes the rounds on the Engrish websites. 😀

I must?! In the words of Stephanie Tanner, “How rude!” (Am I the only one old enough to get that?)

I suppose this one goes with Nudy Boy. 😀

If you look closely at the top, you’ll see that it says “Cool Old Dude.” I don’t know why, but I guess that this Mr. Tarou must be cool!

There’s a Juicy Surprise hidden in this tea!

This doesn’t even need to be Engrish to belong here…..

Nor does this.. Come on, who designed this?

In case your nuts are too thick? ^o^;;;;;;;

Karen’s a lesbian. Shh. 😉

This is, believe it or not, the wall of a public restroom in Tokyo.

After it puts on the lotion?

Just a little bit. 😉

These kinds of t-shirts are ALL over Tokyo in the summer.

How descriptive!


I just want to say that I really love this artist’s work. It makes my everyday a happyday, too!

I imagine he is.

This is another common offender in the Engrish blogs. 😉

What’s a dalt?

I’ll be back soon! 😉
