THE GODSISTER

ゴッド・シスター

A few nights ago, I received a phone call from a familiar voice informing me that she (the speaker) was in Hong Kong and would like to have dinner and a chat with her God brother (namely, yours truly).

数"夜"前、電話を受けた僕は、聞き覚えのある声に、彼女(電話の主)が香港に居て、彼女のゴッド・ブラザー(すなわち小生)と食事でもしてお喋りしたがってる、と告げられた。

I can still remember stepping off the plane onto Hong Kong soil and into an industry that comprises more cliques than an upper middle class United States suburban high-school.  You can imagine how hard it was to make friends close enough to be called your family in that type of environment.  Miraculously, I was blessed with several from the get-go and they are still my closest friends today.  Like my brothers Onimal and V.Dubb (both of whom need little introduction), Monica, was one of those friends close enough to be called family.

僕は今も思い出す。飛行機から香港の地に降り立ち、合衆国郊外都市のアッパーミドルクラスの高校にあるグループよりも多くの派閥を抱えたこの業界に脚を踏み入れたときの事を。こういう環境下で、家族と呼ぶに足る親しい友人を得る事がどれほど困難か、君もイメージ出来るだろう。奇跡的なことに、僕は最初から、幾度かの(友を得るという)祝福を得、そして彼らは今もまだ僕の親しい友人で居てくれる。僕の"兄弟"、オニマルやヴァネス(コイツらについてはたいした紹介は必要ないだろう)のように、モニカも、家族と呼ぶに足る親しい友人のひとりだ。

Having relocated to the California for work in western productions, it has been some time since I last saw Monica and her call was a pleasant surprise.  However, I was a bit held up at the moment (as I have been as of late) and postponed our meeting to the next afternoon.

彼女がアメリカのプロダクションで働く為にカリフォルニアに移ってからというもの、最後にモニカに会ってからどのくらいになるだろう。彼女からの電話は嬉しい驚きだった。だけどその時(から最近まで)僕はちょっと手一杯で、会うのは次の午後までおあずけとなった。

 

Before long, the next afternoon arrived and I learned that she was in town for some press conference concerning some TV 'reality' show about some 'amazing' race that she took part in.  Whatever the reason for her visit, the first thing I thought when I saw my old friend was, “huh? Is the water in California tainted with magic? Cause I’m certain you got taller…”  After much discussion, she has “apparently” always been 5’8”…

やがて"次の午後"がやって来て、僕は、彼女が、今参加している何だか"素晴らしい"競争とかそういうTVのリアリティショウかなんかの記者会見の為に香港に居るんだと知った。彼女の訪問の理由が何であれ、古い友人に会った僕が最初に考えたのは…「んん?カリフォルニアの水には魔法でもかかってんの?だって君絶対背が伸びてるぜ?」だった。随分話し合ったあげく、彼女はどうやら"明らかに"前からずっと5フィート8インチだったというんだ…

"you're not 5'8"...  I'm like almost 5'10", I mean, there's no way you're 5'8" all of a sudden..."

「5フィート8インチってことはないだろ…僕はほぼ5フィート10インチだぜ?いや、だからさ、急に5フィート8インチってのは有り得ないって…」

ah... this "high above the forehead angle friendster/myspace/facebook type shot" (with the camera closer to my head) will give the impression of my true height of almost five feet and ten inches to the viewers...

あー…この"friendster/myspace/facebookタイプ・額上方高位置アングル・ショット"(カメラは僕の頭のすぐ近く)なら、見る人に、僕の実際の身長が、ほぼ、ごふぃーとじゅういんち、っていう印象を与えるんじゃないかな…


IMDbの情報によると、フィルの身長は5'9"(175cm)。これが公式情報、ってことでいいのかな。

ええっと、1インチ=2.54センチ、だっけ。ややこしいよねー。

だから、限り無く5'10"に近い5'9"、だと、177cm、くらいになるんだよね?

鬼丸が5'11"(180cm)でしょ、5cmも違うように見えないから、多分、センチ換算だと、177cm、くらいでいいんじゃないかなー。(んなアバウトな)

From IMDb, Phil's height is 5'9"(175cm). ... Is it "official"?

Let me see... 1"=2.54cm ...correct? It's confusing, isn't it?

So, 5'9" that almost 5'10" is... about 177cm or so... ??

Onimal's height is 5'11"(180cm), and the height difference between Phil and Onimal not seems as much as 5cm.

 I guess Phil's height is about 177cm, on conversion into the centimeters... (...slipshod accounting)

Phil gave this entry his own comment:

I think the truth of the matter is that I'm almost 5'10" and the Onimal is almost 5'11"...

フィル自身のコメント:

「実際のところは、僕がほぼ5'10"、オニマルがほぼ5'11"、のはずだ…」

special thanks to you, Phil
