Hello world from a happy “boiled egg”…

This is officially the first one.  January 11, 2010… 1/11/10… kind of neat.

I watched a movie (well, one of five actually) and in the movie, someone started their own blog.  It looked like a fun thing to do… so here I am.  =)

By the way, my name is Roberta.  My dad used to tell people that I was “made in Japan and born in the USA.”  Then my parents brought me right back over to Japan and I’ve lived here for almost all of my life.

If I had to describe myself in five words are less, I’d say I’m a happy “boiled egg.”  Strange?  Yes.  So, if you boil an egg, the color on the outside is… white.  The color on the inside is… yellow.  And that is exactly how I feel most of the time:  Caucasian on the outside and very, very Japanese on the inside.

So, that’s a tidbit for you.  One morsel for the first day of blogging… the first step of an unknown journey.  One little piece of the puzzle that makes up this person… me!  =)

    sad, but I don’t know the kanji you used. (I keep kicking myself for taking Spanish instead of Japanese when I was in High School – oh well). And yes, I am one too. In fact, my Hmong friend Lisa and I always joke how I’m the tallest Asian she knows.

      Gomen, gomen… I wrote, “Omoshiroi desho?” I tend to forget even if people can speak Japanese, they can’t always read and write it. (Need to write a note to self in big, fat red marker!! 🙂 ) And don’t worry… I actually took Japanese in high school, but didn’t study at all!! It’s never too late, Keith-kun! 🙂

      P.S. Yes, you’re the tallest, blond-haired, light-eyed Asian I know, too! (Blue eyes dayo ne?)
