    I have a new favourite - choushi koiten ja nee (get over yourself). I heard it on Hana Yori Dango and I love it so. I even managed to slip it into a conversation with my Japanese teacher tonight. :wink:

    I think that should be 'koete(n).' A fun phrase (and drama), though a bit harsh - I hope you didn't actually say it towards your teacher!

    Some recent words that have struck my fancy:

    度忘れ(どわすれ)to temporarily forget or blank on something - I've been doing this a lot lately.

    小煩い(こうるさい)kind of like 'urusai,' it means annoying, fussy or hard to please, but is most often used for annoying in-laws. How great is it that there is a specific word for how annoying in-laws can be?

    向きになる(むきになる)to get (unreasonably) angry about something that should be trivial

    Ah, that's how it's spelt. Thanks!

    The conversation was about the difference between written Japanese and spoken Japanese. I said something to the effect of "I know not to say stuff like "choushi koeten ja nee" in formal reports and things." I was quite pleased with myself for saying it in context AND not causing offence.

    If Rikaichan is to be trusted then マス signifies both "Mass" and "Masturbation." Score 1 Japanese Slang; Vatican 0.

    Ooh, I forgot about this thread!!

    I learned today that somebody who giggles at the part in Sunshine English where they mention that the girls and boys have to have separate tents does not have a "dirty mind" but a "sick heart" - やましい心.
