phrase of the day  
My new phrase for today is "mo dhonas" - "my bad" in Irish!

I may as well turn this into a longer language post. A bit of Japanese: 日本語の連取は、千と千尋の神隠 を 見始めた。 スペインに 買った
C, please correct if necessary.

La primerva vez que vi El Viaje de Chihiro fue en Espana. Todavía me pone a pensar en verlo en el cine en Espana.
I probably got that completely wrong. If anyone can correct it, please do.

The Japanese is: As for Japanese practice, we started watching Spirited Away. I bought it in Spain.
I'm just after reading daegaer's post that suggests just avoiding pronouns, but I probably should have used them here, as you can't tell when I mean "I" and when I mean "we". Doesn't really matter though.

Spanish: The first time I saw Spirited Away was in Spain. It still makes me think of seeing it in the cinema in Spain.

Do you know what it's called there? I find it somewhat interesting that it has a different name in all three languages I've seen it in - The Spiriting Away of Sen and Chihiro, The Journey of Chihiro, and Spirited Away.

Same as the Spanish then.

Oh, I bought Spirited Away in the HMV sale just before Xmas, and completely forgot about it. Is it as good as they say?

Must remember to watch it soon - thanks for the reminder!!

And go you with all your languages - I'm lucky if I can spit out what I want to say in English sometimes!!

Well, I like it a lot. But I'm slightly obsessed with Japan, plus it was the easiest to understand thing I saw in the cinema in Spain (I originally saw it in Spanish), so I have positive feeling about it. I like Kiki's Delivery Service too, and I've heard good things about his other stuff.

A couple of my icons are from Spirited Away, like this one.

SNAP!! I also have Kiki's Delivery Service - it's such a lovely movie. I also bought The Cat Returns and Whispers of the Heart. I had planned to have a day over the xmas holidays where I would spend a day watching them all, but never got round to it. think I'll have to make a plan soon and do it.

Oh, I think a couple of the Studio Ghibli movies are in the new HMV sale at the moment if your interested in spending money on something other than books for a change :-)!

Go on, you know you want to ...

Oh, and where do you get all your cool icons? I think I need to upgrade to a paid account and add some cool ones too!

Various places. I made some, got some from icon communities, and some from other people's user pics page. This one was a present from silja

Gorgeous - didn't realise you and Silja were so talented!

Guess I'll have to try and find a way to catch up with you both :-)!
