About me

I have excellent English language skills. I am an ex-member of Mensa with 99.9999%th percentile on the GRE.

I will correct language for my friends first. I prefer to correct entries that have not yet been corrected; it is too much work to verify if another person's corrections are already good enough. If I see that I can do better than another person's corrections I may go ahead to correct an entry. Also you may always ask me to correct something of yours whether someone else has already provided corrections or not.

You can also ask me specific or general questions about English, in comments or in messages. I may wish to publish a reply to a question publicly, so if you wish my conversations with you to remain private, please tell me this at the time you ask the question.

Please do not offer me any more corrections, as I am not yet able to construct even the most basic sentence in Japanese yet. I first have to learn to read and write Katakana and Hiragana, then move on to the (very large number of) Kanji. I have 26 books about the Japanese language but have not yet had the time to devote to them. Yes, I have two books about "particles", wa, ga, no and so forth.

I want to move to Japan to live for a while at least. I was told that Hokkaido is very nice; however, my apologies but I do not like snow or the cold. I lived on Guam (Marianas Islands that include Saipan) from age 4 to age 10 and then in Miami (Florida US) from age 10 to age 16 and want warmth (but not too hot for too long) and strong Sun. Other people have recommended either Fukuoka or Osaka, or Okinawa. I don't care where I live as long as it is not too far away from a City, not too far away from the Country, and not too far away from the Ocean. :) I would probably not like to live in an area too densely populated and I am no longer impressed with "a fast-paced life" - technological addiction has its place - with me as its master. :)

If I come there you are all in big trouble because I call myself 思金の息子 or 思金の孫, but I have too much a sense of humor to be only grim, so I also say that perhaps I am the nephew of 恵比須 (and you see it is his image I use for my avatar.)

I am going to expand that page as time goes on. Feel free to suggest things I can add there.
