Jabble Family Part 1

Get to know your Jabble family. We asked everyone at Jabble a few questions. Here’s what they said.

Part one; Tokyo area schools. Shinjuku and Shimbashi.

1.What was your favorite toy as a kid?

2.At which store would you like to max-out your credit card? (max-out= reach your spending limit).

3.What was the worst punishment you received at school?

4.Which way does your toilet paper hang on the wall – over or under? 

 

Shinjuku; Kelly, Ayami and Mark.

Kelly 

I had a lot of G.I. Joe and Transformers toys.

I wouldn’t max-out my credit card!. I’m cheap and I hate shopping. Ha ha. (If I HAD TO choose, Yodobashi Camera; I like electronics)

As for punishment we used to get “off task” points. I used to get them for talking with my friends too much in class. (I can’t say the real one because I’m not sure if students would find it as funny as my friends and I did.)

I hang the toilet paper over, of course. I’m not crazy.

Ayami

1.My favorite toy was my stuffed Doramon.

2. I would max my card at an outdoor store.

3. I’ve never been punished although I seemed to annoy the teachers sometimes for doing stupid stuff.

4. Toilet paper hangs over.

Mark

1. My favorite toy was probably my battery powered He-man sword that came with a bunch of lights and sounds. It would light up like a Christmas tree.

2. I would shop at one of the large music stores in Ochanomizu. I would love to have a Rhodes electric piano!
3.The worst punishment?That’s a difficult one. I remember having to sit against a wall for lunch time detention for pretending to be a Dalek from Dr. Who.
4. I was told you’re an optimist if you have the toilet paper hang over. So from that point on, I’ve been a Toilet Paper Hang Over man.

Shimbashi: Kenny, Miki and Nik

Kenny 

I had a lot of Star Wars toys.

I would max-out my credit card at Disk Union. It:s a record shop in Shinjuku. They have a great selection of industrial noise tapes.

The worst punishment was that I got caned for getting drunk on a school trip in Russia.

I put the toilet paper over but I don’t think it’s intentional.

Miki 

I rarely played with toys. I preferred playing outside when I was younger.

I would max-out my card at clothing shops like Zara.

I was never punished in school but I always slept in class.

I hang the toilet paper either way.

Nik 

I loved my Star Wars figures.

I’d max out my credit card at Antenna America (a great craft beer spot).

I got suspended (made to stay home) for 1 day for flushing someone’s swimsuit down the toilet.

I don’t care how the toilet paper is hung. Put the roll on the floor , it’s all good.

Mameshiba Puppy

I went to Lalaport in Funabashi the other day and of course I had to stop in at the pet shop. The next thing I know, the staff stuffed a Mameshiba into my arms. She was so cute but SO expensive.

 
Can anyone guess how much? Please type your guess below.

The knight of Harajuku

In January, I hung out with my friends in Harajuku. We went to a couple of small galleries. When we were walking, we saw this knight that seemed to be guarding a shipping container. Above the knight, was a crack in the wall. In the crack was a clock. I think the knight is a time traveler. And he’s guarding a time machine inside the shipping container. What do you think?

Learning English From Movie Quotes!

はじめまして。AYAMIです。これから不定期で、私の好きな映画の中から、台詞をピックアップして紹介していきたいと思います。映画史に残る名台詞や、個人的に好きな台詞、日常生活でよく使う台詞など、ランダムに紹介していきます。
『ノーカントリー/No Country for Old Men』(2007)
監督:コーエン兄弟/ Coen Brothers
記念すべき第一回は、私が大好きなコーエン兄弟監督作品の中でも、一番好きな作品の、一番好きなシーンからご紹介します!コメディやサスペンス、スリラーなどを得意とし、これらの要素を絶妙に混ぜ込んだ数々の名作を生み出してきた彼らですが、この作品は少しテイストが異なります。コメディ要素ゼロ、台詞も少なめ、音楽も最小限に抑えられ、物語は静かに淡々と、しかし得体の知れない緊迫感で観る者を圧倒します。一瞬の隙もないコーエン兄弟の最高傑作。
台詞は、映画史に残る悪役、ハビエル・バルデム演じるアントン・シガーがガソリンスタンドに立ち寄った際、店主と交わした会話の中から。
What’s the most you’ve ever lost on a coin toss?
(コイン投げの賭けで、これまで失った一番大きなものはなんだ?)
★ポイント
the最上級+名詞+S+have(has)+ever+過去分詞
これまでに~した中で最も~
「今までで一番~だった!」「今までで一番~だったのは?」と言いたい時に使えます。[S have(has) ever 過去分詞]で節を作り、直前の名詞を修飾します。
例:That is the best movie[I have ever seen]!
     (これまで見た映画の中で一番面白かった!)
例:What is the most embarrassing thing [you have ever done]?
  (人生で一番恥ずかしかった失敗は?)
※上の例文のようにthe mostは通常、長め形容詞や副詞の前について最上級を作りますが、台詞のようにthe most で単体で使用する場合もあり、最大限、最高額、最大量などの意味になります。
例:What is the most [you have ever drank in one night]?
  (これまで、一晩で一番飲んだお酒の量は?)
