And we have a all Japanese girls school here too so I met some of them but I never was good at Japanese but talking in English to me and my classmates helped them also get experience speaking English. Nishinomiya in the Osaka area is one of our sister cities so we have an exchange program with them. The same teacher I had for Japanese the first taught there for a while too, except he taught English there.

You'll see them at the store and mall all the time and waiting for the public bus. Giant groups of Japanese girls, sometimes just a small group of 2, 3 or 4.


I used to live in Montreal where I was born, I now live in Mexico City :P

I am now 10 years into this place. Creeped for a year then joined. It is better now than it has been in about 2-3 years. This place seems alive and somewhat fruitful again.

BTW I haven't once changed my Avatar. The only time it was different is when it had a fake moderator title above my name that Sonikku made for me :lol: That has to be some kind of record.

I joined just when the forums switched to phpbb. I remember seeing the old forums hosted on gamespy but never signed up. Good times were to be had back then. Took a random leave of absence starting in 2008 but I have been posting on and off since then.

I still have no idea what is going on with the dojo now, but looks like drama like usual. Why cant we all just get together and just have a good ol fashioned orgy?

I've been lurking around since the pre-gamespy days, but didn't actually join to post until late 03.

My first couple posts really showed my age. Total lack of sentence structure. :P

Cool, I lived in Ottawa for a few years. We used to go party in MTL on the weekends. QC is a neat place.
Especially since you bought merchandise!

SD went down for a couple months back in 2004 I think and everyone was forced to post on the old icon boards. God it sucked.

I remember that. That was around the time I stopped visiting.

Hello, Musha. 'Tis I. Did you think that I would forget what you did? I have waited for this moment for almost a decade, posting so as to not cause the least suspicion of our true identities, posting as one in black and white after she chose you over me, hoping each time that you would find me and return, seeking to finish what you started. That time is now, but you will not succeed. Now I am the master. Defend yourself! :duel:

I think we share the title then. I first went without avatar a while after registering and then made this one. I don't want to change it since I identify it with these forums for some reason. And I seem to recall the xzibit name from the early days. I registered here after lurking for some months. I used to follow the discussions at the old forums for a short while, then checked here and decided to register eventually.
I also visited planetdreamcast.com often. Sometimes read the forum there. Damn, there was some special vibe around gaming during that period that I didn't feel as much before or after for some reason.
