My sig of you came from the sig discussion thread. I was going to change it anyway, and that seemed funny at the time. Now I'm curious who else sigged you, as my sig is fickle and doesn't like being the same thing for very long.
Tonight (well, last night, technically) I gathered up the courage to say, "Konban wa, [surname] sensei." to my maths instructor (who is from Japan). He had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that 5/5 is Children's Day, a national holiday in Japan. I meant to figure out how to say "Happy Children's Day!" in Japanese, but I didn't get around to it. So "konban wa" had to suffice. He gave me a somewhat puzzled look when I said it, but replied with a "konban wa" of his own. I've heard people comment on my having a good accent when I speak in foreign languages, and I'm curious to find out what he thinks of my Japanese accent. It's taken me until the sixth week of the course to try because I'm a bit shy in person. Je ne sais pas.
Edit: I think I inadvertently reduced a few people's post count by necroing a thread that then promptly got sent to forum games. I am not ashamed, either.
