this blog is now finished…
Because it has moved to this new amazing address: bernique.net!!
with a Dutch guy called Bram (seriously, Netherlands, what with those ugly first names???).
Because the beers are so cheap around here, after 45 minutes, I was already drunk.
Which is why I finally let out a secret:
“Oh my god, I am so excited at the moment with the reboot of Sailor Moon!!!”
And no, reader, loving that show when I was a kid and trying to dress up like a sailor scout and to do the transformation routines did not mean I would turn up gay… I am sure some who did that are very straight today.
“The reboot of what?”
He was not kidding. Children here apparently only had limited access to Japanese animation and don’t know Saint Seiya (Les chevaliers du zodiaque), City hunter (Nicky Larson) or Princess Sarah. They know Maya the bee, and Scooby Doo.
That is just plain sad.
So for the next hour, I showed him videos on Google about all the anime series he missed, patting his shoulder and telling him that his country sucked.
Believe it or not, he didn’t text me after our date to thank me for that culture shot…
