(no subject)

Went to a Rakugo workshop that one of my Japanese teachers was hosting today. Rakugo's pretty awesome stuff, being pretty much a solo person telling a story in an exaggerated fashion, using just a fan or a few other basic tools to represent numerous objects and actions. So it's pretty much watching me talk after I've had way too many cokes.

Anyway, I was put on the spot to give a longer Rakugo story when my turn to try it out came, and my obvious reaction was "O___o". But somehow I managed to pull it off, and the Rakugo master quite liked my strange attempt at it.

So yeah.

Rakugo.

Don't mess wid' mah 'kugo skills, yo.
