#926 TDES End Of Year Message

Show 926 Wednesday 24 December
Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah, welcome to The Daily English Show.

It’s almost the last show of the year – The Daily English Show is taking a ten-day holiday. I’m not going anywhere … I’m just going to relax, do a lot of sleeping, maybe write some nengajo which I never got around to doing last year.

So today’s show is just a short announcement to say Merry Christmas, have a great New Years. And I hope you had an excellent year in 2008 and if you had crappy year then you must be happy that it’s almost over!

Thank you so much for all your support in 2008. I’ve really enjoyed reading all your emails and comments, so thank you for taking the time to get in touch and give us your feedback.

Thank you very much to the people that have been doing all the translating – you guys have been doing an amazing job. If you haven’t seen the Polish site, you should go and check that out … I love what they’ve done with all the little pictures, they even have a picture of this yellow couch. It’s very cool.

And thank you to everyone who showed their support by becoming tdes members. We have a little present for you actually. It was going to be a Christmas present but it’s a bit late for that now … so I guess it’s a end-of-year present or a new-year present. It is the first official merchandise for The Daily English Show. So it might be a collector’s item worth millions in a few years – although I highly doubt it.

Anyway, I think it’s cool … it is … jya jyan … a little white towel. This is a pretty typical present that companies in Japan give. And you get them for free if you stay at an onsen. And I love them, they’re so useful. You use them, of course, in onsen for washing yourself or putting on your head or whatever. And you can use them for whatever you like – hand towel, face towel, body towel. You can wrap them around your head if you’re a construction worker or around your neck in summer. There are many uses for this amazing towel. So I’m going to be sending them to all the tdes members next week – so if you’ve moved, please send me your new address.

So, once again, thank you for watching, and thank you for all your support in 2008. If you have a holiday over this new year then have a great holiday, if you have to work, then I hope you enjoy working and if you’re studying for a test – good luck. And I’ll see you in 2009. Bye!
