Words of the Day XIV

Kristen.

Today, I had a good day. I saw two dutch girls and we went out for picnic dinner at the town gardens. Also, I canceled my newspaper subscription and they said I would be refunded some money, and my student loan was approved with a billion percent less pain than I expected to. Today's words were brought to you by Dutch Girl #1.


Japanese Word of the Day is:
ラマ
                                          Rama

English Word of the Day is:  Face


Llama is the transliteration of Llama into Japanese.
Nothing to see here. Alternate spellings are リャマ (Ryama) which is strange.

Face is the fancy word for visage, appearance, guise and facade. It can be mixed so seamlessly into everyday conversation that you will not even know, nor will your friends know just how class you are. True story.



Rama in a sentence: 
お前はラマみたいかおがある。

You have a llama face!.
  



Well, that's about it for me today. Tell me in the comment section if you have ever been told you look like a llama, or are dutch, so that I can mock you bitterly.

  9. I am Dutch. And I'm not proud of it. The Netherlands aren't that interesting.

  10. I am neither Dutch, nor have I ever been called a llama. I consider myself very lucky.

  11. The Chinese word for America is 美國, pronounced meiguo, a transliteration which means literally "beautiful country". This would seem to be overtly flattering; however, the first character 美 (mei), though it does mean beautiful, is a vertical combination of the characters 大 (da) and 羊 (yang), meaning, respectively, "large" and "sheep".

    Fun, eh? :)
