Ninja lessons

A couple of weeks ago I went on a Kompa here in Hiroshima. The equivalent of speed dating but a lot more civilized and you don't necessarily have to move seats after a minute and a half. So there were 6 guys and 6 girls, I can say now I wasn't tempted by any of the guys, they were just too immaculate. I could tell they would definitely spend more than the average amount of time in the bathroom. Which made me think I should take more pride in my appearance. So last week I cut myself a fringe, which I've now discovered to be a little lopsided, I'm thinking I should just leave my appearance to be sorted out by the professionals and pay the cost of going to the hairdressers!
Anyway back to this Kompa thing. When being introduced to one another I was presented as 'This is Kate. She's a vegetarian'. First off I wasn't bothered by this, but when more people came to join us the introduction of being a vegetarian started to irritate me (I don't mean that nastily to those I was eating with). I kind of thought, is this all there is to me? 'Kate the vegetarian!', it's pretty dull. Considering I became vegetarian when I was 9 years old and can't really remember why, I sort of forgot I was one. Before leaving for Japan I remember having a conversation with my brother of how I would like to become some pro in a martial art. He said it would be really cool if I was a ninja, as you don't come across that many ninjas - I wonder why?! So here's a picture of me taken earlier in my ninja class. "This is Kate. She's a ninja" is my new selling piece.

You're still not a Ninja though are you? NO.

I am.

Kate, we love you whichever way you are; whether you choose to be a vegetarian, a ninja, a micronesian or a bell-ringer. After seeing the kids sumo and their training appetite last week, I hope you can come up with a great story to follow your new introductory line!
