      Period? I don't think I'm quite ready for that.
      But... "Kochira koso." Hai. Wakarimasu.

      This does mean however, that I've made this mistake before. Like I said, I
      was trying to be super polite to Ii-dono. It would follow then that I've
      most likely made the same gaff greeting various sensei. <wince> They
      probably thought it was quaint...

      Your site is amazing. I've been slowly sifting through it and digesting it.
      I just haven't gotten to the calendar part yet. (Probably because I'm still
      trying to figure out how people's names worked! :-)

      I didn't see Fletch, but I'm in a terribly good mood and got a huge laugh
      out of that quote. I shall have to see it. I think it will be the first
      movie in English I've seen in like a year...

      Say - perhaps my kendo ashi-sabaki will actually be useful for something
      besides kendo. We slide around on smooth wooden floors all the time.

      You'd be absolutely right about that. :-)

      Ah. Okay. Too bad really. I was quite taken with the idea of being called
      "princess" even though I'm not one. I will have to earn it I suppose.

      As always, thanks for the info.
