Well I didn't really get as much done today as I had hoped - in fact I didn't get anything done whoopie doo daa dei. But! At least I did get to go into English Teacher -mode.
This week I've been helping my friend with some fansubbing. Usually I just go through the lines alone, but today I did it together with him and that is what triggered my English Teacher -mode. That basically means that whenever I suggest a correction I have to go into a lengthy explanation of why, whether it is because of a certain grammar rule or because of even such a small thing as intonation. Ah, such enthusiasm.... I swear I looked like this when I was going on and on about the finesses of the English language:
Makes one wonder if I should've stayed in Finland after all and gone to study at the University of Helsinki to become an English teacher. Hmmmm... Think, think, think....Bububuu! Nah, no I shouldn't have. Living abroad is too valuable an experience to just pass on. Plus! Since I am such a global person and am planning on conquering Japan next, I can just get a part-time job as an English teacher there. So I'd get to take advantage of my English Teacher -mode and be in Japan at the same time - I say that's quite a win-win situation. Wonder if Nana would like some private English lessons? ;)
Talking about Nana, if I see anyone make a really horrendous (or slight) spelling or grammar mistake, god forbid if I see you do both in the same sentence, I will go into Grammar Nazi -mode and glare at you like this and say "I kill you!":
And now ladies and gentlemen, witness the huge flood of intentional typos from people as my Dictator Nana threat does not work the way I intended it to - yet again. And Aaron, if you start typo'ing intentionally from now on just so you can comment on my angry face, I shall kick you! That is all.
Ah, what an awesome blog post this was - I got to compare myself to both Hikki and Nana. I have to pat myself on the back for being so clever. *pat pat*
Oh yes, and here's a link to my friend's fansub group's website: Ruri-Subs.
