Some Japanese terms and concepts today for Valentine’s Day, in case you’re not celebrating with a partner, or perhaps know someone who isn’t.
May I also remind you that there has been more people not in a relationship than there are in the world for a few years now. Single is actually the norm!
Had to break one tweet into several posts so as not to overload with terms in one post. I like to keep it at 3 terms max per post.
Japanese for “toilet lunch”, which is the practice of eating lunch alone in a toilet to avoid being seen without a friend
Japanese for “party of one” that is a new movement where people boldly choose to do things alone regardless of others’ opinion
Date with yourself, or going out on your own by choice, that is a movement now (also look up “self-partnered” as a single status from Emma Watson)
In rush hour on Thursday, June 1st, some unappreciative cyclists rode across the Halifax MacDonald Bridge on the main deck to protest delays in reopening of the bike lane due to the Big Lift Project. In response, Halifax Bridge Commissioner Angus M. MacDonald has announced the reopening of the bike lane will be delayed an additional two days from when it will be ready, to protest the inconsiderate cyclists’ protest. Meanwhile, the walking and running lane will be opened during those two days to show appreciation for walkers and runners who did not protest. Bikers utilizing this path illegally can be expected to be fined and have their bikes taken away for a yet to be determined amount of their bike’s estimated lifetime, in proportion to how far they got across before being stopped.
I seem to be developing a lingo of my own to talk about the 2016 US Election and its fall out. I’ve been avoiding saying the Shrump’s name correctly cause he’s that much of a caricature to me. Now, I’m going to refer to the 2016 US election as simply, 8-11.
