Phew! Another exchange (partially) understood  
Apparently, there's a disaster contact phone tree set up for Chiyoda. I know this because the guy in charge of collecting names just stopped by to get our information. At first, we had no idea what he was talking about, but when he said "pandemic" in English, and then when we got our dictionary and picked up a few words---roku juu roku nin no kazoku ("66 families") and saigai ("disaster"), we figured out what he wanted. So, we're now part of the official phone tree and will be notified if there's a disaster. Since the notification will be in Japanese, I don't know how much good it'll be...but it'll happen.

We went into Hiroshima-shi yesterday. Everyone else cancelled at the last minute, so we didn't stay very long, but softlykarou did get a new hat and some bath stuff. We also ate at an Irish pub called Molly Malone's (run by actual Irishmen) and stuffed ourselves on fish 'n' chips. Also, a lot of the shop clerks asked us if we spoke Japanese as their first question...I'm getting better, but I still can't hold a conversation. :(

What game is your icon from? Dragon Warrior? Whatever it is, I played hours and hours of it as a kid.

Back when RPGs were simpler...if you wanted to hurt something, you cast Hurt. If you wanted to heal yourself, you cast Heal. If you wanted to hurt them even more, you cast...Hurtmore.

I finally beat it a couple years ago. ^_^
