Intro +Kogepan

Hi, I joined this community a few months ago and I think it's great. I'm from Houston and I speak Spanish, fairly good Portuguese (although I'm forgetting a lot), and a few words of Arabic (Palestinian and Moroccan dialects). I can understand Galego and Italian more or less. I'd love to learn more languages, though. Alizee and Camus made me love French, and stuff like Kogepan and Shin Chan make me want to learn Japanese. I'm trying the self teaching route for Japanese, but I'm lazy and unless I'm really pressured into something I usually put it off. Plus new alphabets are really hard for me, I think I have a slight retardation or something :|
On the other hand, I don't have much trouble orally learning languages so I guess that makes up for it
I also have a pretty big interest in computational linguistics, especially machine translation, and the neurological aspects of language acquisition. Nothing too in-depth, stuff in layman's terms like from "Scientific American Mind". Out of curiosity, how many people in this community study or work in those fields?

Anyway, the real reason I'm posting is because I've had this Kogepan journal since 2002 and I've always wanted to know what the little breads are saying. I recently discovered this page which explains the background of Kogepan, but I'd really like to know what's on my journal. If you could write out the Japanese in Latin letters (edit: in addition to an English translation) I'd especially appreciate it :)




This scan didn't come out so great

Thanks so much!

    Poor English, none of the other Germanic languages came to its defense. Frisian is laughing.
