    Pretty much.

    I was gonna say that I'm not really a fan of whiskey, but that's not true. I like Manhattans. Mostly I just drink vodka though.

    Me and Kozi would have a lot of fun together I think (if we could understand each other, that is.)

    I laughed and then I felt bad because (from what I've heard) it's true :( (edit: that being korean or chinese or really any kind of ~gaijin~ in japan is not fun)

    Incidentally the word I translated as 'medicinal herb' was 薬草 yakusou so I guess you can run it through a dictionary and interpret it however you'd like.
