comment How do you write the sound “wu”?
OK, but what about the name "Swoozie" like I asked, where the sound is in the middle of the word? Following that rule, it would be スージー, which sounds more like the female name "Suzie". It doesn't give the "push" of the 'w'. Maybe スゥージー?

comment Difference between kara and n desu?
I never learned 〜からです in textbooks. The first one I learned was 〜ですから. My beginner courses used "Japanese For Busy People", so anyone else using that will probably not encounter it, unless they've added it to the revised editions.

Note that can be either へん or ほとり, though the latter usually means "edge", used in context of water (bank of a river, beside a lake, etc.)

comment About ご[馳走]{ちそう}: two “runs” would give you “a feast”?
Why, do they provide ridiculous scenarios like mine to explain kanji? :D But, no, I'm not (in case your question was serious).

comment Is しまった an appropriate translation for “Oops”?
As an aside to the actual question, you may want to use some other phrase instead of trying to literally translate "Oops". For example, an incorrect password on Facebook gets you パスワードが間違っているようです (with some additional wording afterward).

comment Why does 今度【こんど】 mean “next time”?
Why shouldn't it be confusing? We basically have the same problem in English.

comment Slang: What does テラス mean?
[As to why you'd want to "roll on the floor laughing" in the context of declining an invitation, I don't have a definitive answer] -- Why not, people use LOL in English for everything these days, even things that aren't funny at all.
