did they poke it with a citistick?

one final, short banking story for you. when enid and the man were living in japan, they banked with citibank. most japanese people cannot pronounce a single "s" sound - they pronounce it "sh" instead.

enid said...

hey, little miss moi, are you japanese? poor enid left the place 7 years ago and her ears are bleeding. chiili pizza sounds good, himalaya sounds good. double coffee is enid's usual pitstop to warm up after walking on sundays. enid's back in molvania on weds, how about beers at the weekend. men included, if they want?

Dear enid. No I am not nihonjin, just wannabe (did you see my recent post about knee socks and assume the best? Sorry). Never lived there, just visited a couple of times and gakkoo de nihongo o benkyoshitta.

Beers on weekend sound good (any excuse to prise Mr Moi away from Rugby at O'Briens). I can tolerate Arena Bar before all the beauties swan in. But I haven't explored many of the bars as yet so suggestions are encouraged.
