Ah yes some difficulties might arise, if one is not completely indifferent to one's family members.

Anyone want to explain what this means? Two of what? And why is it arienai?

Ossan, I'll field this one. It was in reference to a commercial she's in (haven't noticed what the product is however). At any rate, a teenage boy is in front of the fan on a hot summer day and two Maki's come in with icecreams and ask him to hug her. Flash back to reality and his mum is holding up two icecreams. It's probably an icecream commercial. That or a government-sponsored advertisement encouraging people to sweat like they've never sweated before in one of Japan's beautiful seasons.

"Arienai" means @it won't happen@, i.e., you'll never see her ice cream cones -- not unless she gets a news anchor job and turns 30, anyway.

Isn't it time she had an affair? It seems that's what "talent" do in Japan to boost their ratings...

Just more wasted time on the tube. Gives me another reason to fire up my DVD player or 360. I got to finish that Prison break season three anyway.

I have a feeling that I'm the only one who doesn't find her the least bit attractive.
