I opened my fridge and found Emler Fudd sleeping on the top shelf!
"What are you doing in there?" I asked.

"Dis is a Westinghouse isn't it?" Elmer responded.

"Yes, it is."

"Well, I'm just westing!"

Oooo! Thank you for the videos. Nice to be reminded that Japan is not all cities and boring-looking high speed rail.

Also, the Totoro theme's refrain is now trapped in my head (in addition to being catchy, I don't know what the rest of the lyrics mean)

Have a fantastic summer full of good food, fair winds and following seas!

Arkonbey - thanks for the VF.

Back home today. 'Hope to do some posts soon. Our trip was all about rural Japan.

Totoro song - well, I love Miyazaki's films and this one is a favorite. There is a Japanese version of the song and an English version written for the US release of the film. The latter is not an exact translation due to the need to make the song rhyme. There is a very nice webpage which displays all three; the Japanese version in Romaji, the literal translation, and the English version of the song, here: Totoro Lyrics.

And of course, there is the English version on youtube:
