  1. I had to listen to Amy’s story twice, because I had wondered if Crayon was the original name of the yarn.

    But can I preserve Amy’s Noro story? I think so. Japanese has no alphabet. They have a syllabary (actually 2, Hiragana and Katakana for the same sounds). These supplement the pictograms (Kanji). They use the syllabary to do their best to sound out and spell foreign words. So the syllables (of the 50+ available) work out in English lettering (Romaji) as follows for Mr. Noro

    Crayon = ku re yo n (“n” is the syllabic n)

    Cleopatra = ku re o pa to ra

    Strange how sometimes a translation from the original language to another then back can transform an phrase to something totally different.

    Thanks for the podcast. I’ve really been enjoying it.

    Mimi (not Japanese but studied it in college)
    PS My sentiments about the Garter Tab Start: ditto to yours.

  2. Yea for scripted shows! My son is a writer for “Nikita” on the CW–just renewed for Season 3. There is so much action some episodes that I have to look up a lot!
