Hello.

I stumbled across your very entertaining life looking for somewhere to ski in Japan. Thanks for a good laugh and fascinating reading (it helps that you're photogenic). I'm from Merewether, NSW, Aus. Have a great Christmas and good luck. Bye!

23rd December 2004

response:

Cheers Karen, very kind of you. I don't know if I'm photogenic as such - more 'good at using Photoshop'! Have a great Christmas yourself in NSW! I hope to get over there one day!

Hi Joseph

Nice to see things are looking up. Not sure about "chavscum" (21st November) - certainly makes me uncomfortable. Hearing it used in Sheffield, looking at their website, I'm left feeling that there's a fine line between affectionate humorous banter on the one hand and sneering at the culture of others on the other hand. I've just been reading 'A little book on the Human Shadow' by Robert Bly which seems to throw some light (excuse the pun) on the whole thing.

Ho humm - I really must write my lesson plans for the Ofsted lessons tomorrow.

love stephen

hhmm, yes, I agree, it's a fine line.

Hi Flo - gal :)

Thanks for your message. Epilepsy? Not so strange when you consider that I have a whole page devoted to epilepsy!!

I live with two Malaysians at the moment, and very nice people they are too!

liking the site, the photo's from kingdom are so much fun, though despite being sober i don't remember posing for that one.

nice trousers too! and as a female i'm officially obliged to hate you as you look better in lingerie than i do. -_-o

see you in 'understanding japan' *shudder*

21st October 2004

response:

Hello hello!!

Thanks for you message!

... the photo… I think kathryn took that one whilst I was busy dancing like a monkey.

ah, yes, so you found The Daily Mumble eh (or was it just the photo albums)? I wouldn’t go reading that if I were you… dangerous stuff. tends to involve quite a lot of truth. rather bizarrely I find it a little disconcerting when people I know find it, as it’s private you know (quite how I can say that when I publish it on the www I’m not sure!).

ah, yes, my underwear, yes, I wouldn’t say that rocking around with a vacuum is a regular occurrence, but well, life’s for living, deshou…

anyway, I must get on with the kanji, they are dying to get out of the book and into my brain. See you sooooooon jaaa ne bai bai!

Hello from Tokyo, Joseph. Long time, no see. ;-) Tito and I are still here and I'm still at OBC. Things have changed quite a bit since you spent your busy season here. I can't recall if you were here before or after it was sold to a new owner. The office was moved to Kudanshita (a real craphole compared to Shinjuku) and business has been steadily dropping each year. Anyway, I'm glad to hear things seem to be going well for you. If you make it back here before we (Tito and I) finally pack things in and head home, you can embarrass us with your superior Japanese ability.

Best wishes,
Shari

12th October 2004

response:

Hello hello!

Great to hear from you! So you’re still in Tokyo eh? I’m hoping to come over next summer for a month or two, otherwise I won’t be touching down at Narita until summer 2006 when my year abroad (in a Tokyo university) starts. Finances are stretched as I went bankrupt last april having racked up about US$30,000 of debt! Still, living on a nice tight budget now, and have so far managed to save about USD$800 which is enough for the airfare for starters. So yes, hope to see you then!!

Where’s Mr. Darryl these days? I’ve not heard from him in a while.

Well, anyway, study of the Kanji started yesterday, so I really must get on and drive myself mad by drawing lots of little symbols and attempting to remember the 3000 different readings each one has!

Take care

Joseph

hi joe just got hooked up on net hope you had lovely time at school reunion. did you take many photos? love jeremy.

Hey Joe! Slightly pink faced after seeing some long forgotten photos - great memories though. Was great to see you at the school reunion - haven't laughed that hard for a long time! Come and see us in sunny Exeter. Love Robin. xxxx

1st October 2004

response:

thanks guys! Yes, it was really great wasn't it - quite surreal seeing so many great friends after such a long time! I wasn't feeling terribly photographic that night so the photos are limited to the few found here.

I thought that those skits were absoltely fantastic - so much so that I requested the transcripts from Billy.

All in all a wonderful event, celebrating something that we all should feel justly proud of.

Hi Jo[s]e[ph]

Hope all is well with you and your family.

Just droping you a note to let you know that Jason "Wilf to his friends online" arrived in Bangkok and safely navigated his way through the airport scam artist. He paid £20 to get his head down in some posh hotel and says Bangkok is 1 big shhhh Hole, he can't wait to get out of the city, but I guess all cities have the same appeal :P

My wife Jude and I went on to London for the day after droping him at Heathrow. We were amazed at how efficient the underground network is and at how very few english people are actually in London, so I guess its quite simmilar to Bangkok in many ways. Someone said take all the foreigners and nutters out of london and there won'w be anyone left there.

We did see "the Old Woman, who walk's the streets of London and she did have her home in two plastic bags, as she rummaged for food in the underground rubbish bins. Made us both stop and think for sure!

Your site, as always, is a breath of fresh air Joe and may your next journey prove to be as fascinating as the memories you share with us on here.

Cya

Andrew

1st October 2004

response:

30th September 2004

response:

ah, Jason, the message I've been waiting for for a long time! There were times, I must admit, I doubted it would ever happen, but no, you've really done it, that's bloody fantastic! I hope you have a great time - I'm sure you will. Email me won't you - or why don't you set up a Blog - that's what Blogger.com's for (not TGW!)

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon

I ran into this site by accident at work here in downtown Atlanta. The site looks interesting and I will pull some pages out to learn more about you, "Tame" and the section of England that fills most of these pages, I suppose. It looks very nice and I should learn something about young people in England and what your world is up to.

Here, my little "cottage" near the ocean in Panama City Beach, Fla., manage to dodge the four hurricanes that have hit Florida in the last two months. I've had a new bath and kitchen built into the place and even the roof top deck missed getting blown away. Panama City Beach is known as the "Red Neck" Riveria in the Deep South. But it has some very white sand and pretty green blue ocean. It's near Pensacola, Florida where all the U.S. Navy pilots train who fly off aircraft carriers. You may know that Georgia is known as the "Peach State" in the USA. But South Carolina actually produces many more peaches than Georgia. I'm not from South Carolina but that is a fact. I spent some time in London many years ago when the Beatles were hanging out there with studio recordings, etc. Showing my age but pleased to be here. regards, Jim Hightower

28th September 2004

response:

thanks for your message Jim, always good to hear that my site reaches a wide audience! Hope you continue to escape the hurricanes.

comments:

Just spent the last half hour reading and reminiscing about our time/adventures in Scheidegg.

Ya know, sometimes I really miss that place, sometimes I shudder at the memory. Good times though.

Maybe go back for a visit some day, but as a guest, not an employee.

27th July 2004

response:

Dan Long time no speak!

I know exactly what you mean. Your message prompted me to have a read of our adventures... so many emotions associated with that place, crikey... I know exactly what you mean, shuddering and yet simultaneously longing to take that trip down from the 4th floor to the chocolate vending machine at the deserted, silent railway station. Deserted that is except for Pedro and a couple of other Portuguese...

Boy did we have some good times, and hellish times. That place completely changed my life in many ways (hey, it's because of our time there that next month I'm starting a 4-year degree course in Japanese studies!), I really am a stronger person for the experience. Anyone working in the same building as Mr. Eggen would be!!

If I ever make mega bucks I'll pay for a load of us to get together and have a skiing holiday there... somehow though I don't think it will ever be quite the same again. For a start the cow-shed where we held Cow-Hut Camp Fest has probably got a padlock on it now.

Shit, I've just beeen looking through the photos, makes me feel so nostalgic. So many memories attached to them all.

I think this one sums it up pretty well though, along with the story that goes with it...

Take care Dan,

Till next time we meet for a greasy Rosti mit speck und spiegelei!

4th July 2004

response:

Such a heated response - were my Mumble comments too close to the truth for your liking?!!

Tee hee.

Yes, despite you being a complete pain in the arse I must admit it was quite amusing having you around, although I wouldn't voluntarily go through the experience again.

Take care over there in Wales. Perhaps next time we meet you'll be able to do your shoelaces up without Melanie's help.

John Y forced me to look briefly at your website yesterday. Today I had insomnia due to romantic stress, and was looking for something to make me sleep :-) So I came back and read some of your site. I think your website is very very nice. You clever thing.

22nd June 2004

response:

he FORCED you to look at it did he? You poor thing, isn't it dreadful what some people put you through...

I hope you're romantic stress is easing. Just don't let it lead you into spending £17,800 in a bid to sort it out as a certain Tame did last year...

It was really great to meet you. Milton Keynes is indeed a weird and wonderful place, and I look forward to my next visit.

Take care.

response:

Jason you muppet!!

No more jumping off walls ok, and I hope your feet mend quickly so you get out there and have a great Ozzie summer party whilst we're all freezing our arses off!
