Adios Sarutobi!

I've got a busy next couple of days ahead. I'm driving up north to attend Famoksaiyan meeting on Sunday, and I've also got a paper that I'm writing on the presence and absence of decolonization amongst Chamorro organizing in the diaspora, that I've got to finish by the end of the weekend.

Don't know when I'll be able to post again for reals, so for now let me sate all of you with some Naruto videoes. I used to hate Naruto, gof taimamahlao na lahi, gof a'gang yan na'estotba. He's so annoying to read, sa' mampos ti kalamya gui', lao todu tiempo manggagana! Todu tiempo ha na'hahasso yu' put Yu-Gi-Oh GX. Ya ayu mampos gof ti ya-hu!

What I'm posting below is a battle between Orochimaru and the Third Hokage (from the TV show), and just happens to be the fight from the manga that finally got me hooked into the Naruto universe. Over the summer, my nephew Kinboy left volume 14 in my room on Guam, and over a few weeks I flipped slowly through it. Even though I knew nothing really about Naruto the manga, I could tell that this battle was epic, and so I kept wanting to see how it ends. But as it usually is with these sorts of battles in mangas, it happens over several chapters and possibly even several volumes. So I resisted as long as I could, but eventually gave in, and started buying other volumes.

Just a reminder, for those interested, in mixing manga and the Chamorro language, I've still got my Chamoru fanslation of Kekkaishi, that I'll email to anyone interested. Just let me know, and Si Yu'us Ma'se to the few who have contacted me so far.

Hope everything is okay with you and the other Guam families. My two sisters are in the San Diego area as well. Take care.
