[weeaboobies] Just had to...(3/27/2009vers)

So, I've been listening to this Japan-fan podcast called weeaboobies (the Yotsuba&! button is a link to the site)... and I saw some list on their site about having to be 4 of this list to be a weeaboob:

if you have more than four japanese/anime posters on your wall [check]
if you have an internet alias that ends with chan, kun, san, sama, senpai or sensei [check]
if you say “tadaima” when you arrive home [check- i do. just not all the time because my parents and sister (one of the two) gives me a look]
if you answer your phone by saying “moshi moshi” [check- isnt it spelled "mushi mushi"?] if you wear a kimono at any time. even as a joke.
if you have a shirt that says otaku. or anime fan.
if you own this button
or if your clothing has anime characters at all on them, or anime references [check- I even made a Kon/ chibi Uryu and chibi Renji shirt]
if you refer to your siblings as “nee-san/chan” or “nii-san/chan”
or your mom & dad as “oka-san” or “otou-san”
or your cat as “kawaii neko-chan”
or your friend as “kawaii neko-chan”

if you suddenly craved a pocky stick since you saw it typed out [check]
if you actually HAVE a box of pocky at your side
if the only word you can read in japanese is “ai” because of gaara’s dumb symbol

if any of the following pictures make your panties wet (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11)
if you just saved any of those pictures
extra points - if you already have any of those pictures
if you say “believe it” more than once a week
if you eat your food with chopsticks ever (even ramen especially ramen)
if you’ve tried to learn japanese [check... plan to go back to it]
if you’ve spoken japanese frequently
if you’ve corrected someone’s pronunciation of a japanese word [check >.<]
if you’re getting mad that i haven’t capitalized “japan” or “japanese” at all
if you’ve been to an anime convention
if you own any naruto merchandise whatsoever [check- shirts]
or inuyasha, or bleach, or death note [check- bleach]
if you’ve made an AMV [check- more than one]
if you own a katana or a shinjuku (that’s japanese for shuriken, lolol) [check-maybe: does a homemade one count?]
if you type with any of the following faces: ^^ ^_^ *w* :3 T-T @o@ n_n UwU =^w^= [check]

if you cosplay at all. poorly or well. [check]
if 90% of your clothing was bought from hot topic
if you’ve taken 5+ pictures with you making a peace sign
if your myspace has even ONE japanese word on it [check- i think]
if you’ve ever fangirled over an anime character [check- gara and uryu]
if the only thing you read is manga and fanfiction
if you can think of something else to add to this list [check- you have no idea]

As you can see.... I over qualify in my opinion. Pretty soon (come september 2009) I can check off much more of these including the con one.
