Nope. I used to be when I was little, but there isn't a club for people past 12 where I live. I have a friend who's, like, 2nd dan in karate, though.
Oh wow, almost a whole pancake week? D: Jeeealous. I guess I could just have pancakes on a normal day, though. BUT IT'S NOT THE SAME. Do you give up things for Lent in the Orthodox religion?
Oh, you know, blond is the stereotypical hair colour for Russians. A lot of Russians live in my town, too, and loads of them are blond. I guess they probably dye their hair as well, though. In any case, you have more blondes than the average country would have.
Haha, if you were from Dunmanway, you wouldn't be shouting it so proudly. It's kinda rough around here, we have a bit of a reputation with the other towns. xD I'm still alive, though, and I'll be leaving in September anyway, so it's all good.
St. Petersburg is where my cousin was born! Coincideeeence. :O Although I suppose lots of people were born in St. Petersburg, really. xD
Nah, I'm just lame and end up rambling. You are neat and concise. Sorry for taking so long to reply, by the way, I had exams. ;_; I'm finished as of today, though!
Oh, and I'm from a town called Dunmanway. It's really small, only about 3000 people. It's about an hour away from Cork City, though, which is the second-biggest city in Ireland. It's also the best city. :D
Yup, balloons, drums, floats, children being forced to participate by their schools/Tae Kwon Do clubs, various farming vehicles. And bagpipes. Dear God, the bagpipes. THEY ARE NOT EVEN IRISH, GET THEM OUT OF MY EARSHOT. In my town, Patrick's Day is really the only parade. There's a small one for Sam Maguire Day, he's like, this Irish Republican guy that was born in my town. But mostly, he was good at Gaelic football, so the national cup is named after him. But there'd be things like Gay Pride and that in the city. And other towns would probably have their own local parades.
I hadn't heard of it 'til you mentioned it just there, but upon Googling it, Maslenitsa seems to be the Russian Orthodox equivalent of Carnival? We don't really have Carnival here, but we have Pancake Day. Oh boy, do we have Pancake Day. I ate like, six of them yesterday. And now I'm giving up Nutella for Lent. ;_;
I'm not, my hair's brown. I also tan quite well. :D I actually don't know many redheads at all. There are none in my year, even. There used to be, but they were all kind of thick, so they dropped down to LCA, which is basically what you do when you know you're never going to college so you don't need to do anything for the rest of school. None of my relatives are redheads, none of my friends are redheads... it's kind of weird, when you think about it, that I know so few. What about you? Are you blond?
Yeah, that's the thing here, as well, video games are really expensive, especially Nintendo. €50 for a popular new game a lot of the time. PC games are ridiculously cheap, though.
In Ireland, the only anime you will ever see on TV is Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, Bakugan, Beyblade, Dragonball Z, those sorts of things. FilmFour will occasionally do a Ghibli season, but they're an English channel anyway, so I guess they don't really count. With DVDs, you'll get a bit more selection, but only in specialist stores, really. And yeah, I'm not sure they'd be selling too many DVDs.
Manga-wise, it's exactly the same story here. You'll get Death Note, FMA, Vampire Knight, and Fruits Basket, and that's about it. I think I once saw Peach Girl, though, which was weird.
Ah, thank you! I was actually able to understand most of what the others were saying, even though I barely speak a word of Japanese. I guess they're speaking to kids, after all.
I accepted you! :D
Yup, St. Patrick's Day is March 17th. It's so boring in my town, though, the parade's useless and there's nowhere good to go. :P Do you have parades for it in Russia? I know there's one in Tokyo, which I find really weird.
You mean to tell me you're not a bear? I was under the impression that everyone in Russia was a unicycle-riding bear. You know, like how all Irish people are belligerent drunk gingers.
We do alright for video games in Ireland (no worse than anywhere else in Europe, anyway), but anime/manga-wise, there's pretty much nothing. You can't find anime to save your life (besides Pokémon and Studio Ghibli), and we really only get popular manga, and even that's difficult to find. It's still alright here, though. Apart from the economy. But it could be worse! We could be Greece. xD
Yeah, all of what he said. His voice was so weird, I couldn't understand a thing.
Just finished watching it this second! Can I ask what the heck Meowth was saying?
