All the people who appear in my blog have pseudonyms taken from the world of Sailor Moon.
Princess Serenity/Usagi: That’s me! I’m American.
Prince Endymion/Mamoru: That’s the oft like Mamo-chan husband of mine. He’s Japanese.
Small Lady: My dog. She’s stubborn and feisty and I love her to pieces.
Naru: That’s my wonderful and most trusted bestest friend. She’s Canadian.
Motoki: My super awesome former colleague and cosmic twin who like me, struggles with issues of mental health. He’s Japanese.
Nemesis: Former co-worker and AC hating bitch, though I’m afraid I’ll have no more new stories of her from this point forward, but she’s on this list as a point of reference. She’s Japanese.
Artemis: My TV watching buddy. He’s American.
Eiru: A really old friend of mine whom I no longer speak to but wish to reconnect with. He’s American.
Luna: My doula. She’s American.
Minako: My long time friend, happy and cheerful and married to a Japanese man. She’s American.
Makoto: Really awesome former co-worker, loves AC. She’s Japanese.
Ami: Sweet and smart like her namesake (Ami Mizuno), Ami is my former coworker who would have been an incredibly close friend if we had had more time together. She’s Japanese.
Setsuna: Sufferer of a tremendous amount of pain in her life, my dear friend Setsuna stays strong despite it and I really admire her for that. She’s American.
Haruka: My oldest friend in Japan (as in I’ve known her the longest). Like her namesake she’s a lesbian, and I think she has a lot of the same characteristics. She’s Canadian.
Diana: Sweet, innocent, and adorable like her namesake, Diana is someone I met not too long ago but we have many things in common and instantly hit it off. She’s American.
お父さん – Mamouru’s dad, my father-in-law, obviously Japanese. お父さん means “father” in Japanese, and it’s actually what I call him.
Demande: I do freelance work for this guy two to three times week. He’s Japanese, has a childlike optimism, and a hopeless romantic.
Fish Eye: My friend from grad school. The only thing he has in common with his pseudonym is that he’s gay. He lived in Korea for a while but is now back in the US.
Kunzite: My super awesome gay friend from yoga. He’s bright and funny and so full of life. He’s Indonesian.
Kotono: My other friend from yoga. She’s quiet, Japanese, and isn’t much of a hugger. I keep forgetting that.
Rei: New friend from yoga. She beautiful but kind of a bitch (just like her Sailor Moon namesake Rei Hino). She’s Japanese.
Michiru: Another friend from yoga (surprising right). Michiru is bisexual and kind of looks like her namesake (minus the green hair). She lives quite far from the city though.
