AMERICAN FOOD  
Several of the people visiting me asked me what foods I want from home.. After much thought, I came up with this list of things that are transportable (ie, I really would kill for some things that just can't be transported, like Taco Bell bean burritos):

EZ Cheese
Carnation Instant Breakfast
Twinkies
Fruity Pebbles
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Campbell's Bean with Bacon soup
Sweet Tarts (the giant size ones!)
Jolly Ranchers (OMG)
Torani's vanilla flavoring syrup
Cheese ball (the kind with the nuts on the outside)
Vanilla Dr. Pepper!!
Goldfish

With the exception of tiny packs of goldfish, I can't get ANY of this in Japan. At least that I've found. I even asked the realtor if he knew where to get some of this, but he didn't know. (He didn't know what any of it was either.. X_x) It's so hard living without normal foods, sometimes. Sometimes I just want normal foods. My favorite foods... Speaking of which, why is there no Taco Bell in Tokyo? (where civilians can go in???????!)

So, I talked to work about the realtor. They're working on it. That's all they can say, and they'll keep in touch. Dammit, why are they being so difficult? I'm getting pretty upset about it now. It's frustrating, and they don't seem to understand that I HAVE to set up internet before I move in, and it might already be too late. Why can't they just bring me in today? X_x I'd rather be there and look through books or something. Gah. I'm getting REALLY frustrated!!!!!

Well...I suppose I could get you some Taco Bell...but it'd be a few days old by the time you got it... .^^*

But I'll definately pick up some stuff for you! .^___^

If you could figure out how to like... refridgerate the bean burritos I would LOVE you. Though it's probably not possible. ^^;; But at this rate I'm honestly almost desperate enough to eat ones that HAVEN'T been refrigerated. X_x

That, or I'm this close *holds fingers 1 cm apart* to arguing my way onto the military base to get some Taco Bell. I WANT!!!!! I WANT WANT WANT! Almost so bad that I could cry. I miss Taco Bell SO MUCH!

Hmm.... Well, actually they'd only have to survive the long long flight, and then I could give to Hiku to give to you.. Maybe I could package some burritos with ice (in ziplock baggies..)....

Waa! I can't believe I'm contemplating how to smuggle burritos into Japan.. .^^** I feel like a nerd.

I would go kicking and screaming. >3 "HANDS OFF THE BURRITOS!!"

LOL I just went to their webpage and wrote to them asking why there was no restaurant in Japan. I wonder if they'll reply!

I had a conversation with a friend once where we deduced they didn't have Taco Bell in Japan because...well...octopus.. .^^*

Then why are there Taco Bells in China? ;__;
sailorstarsun: hmm...sailorstarsun on July 12th, 2005 08:54 am (UTC)
Are there!?! XD ::laughs:: Wow....

I was actually kinda surprised to see a Wendy's in Japan. .^^ I didn't think it was a big enough chain to get over there. And Taco Bell is more popular...I think... .o_o Weird...

Maybe they have some kind of boycott against Taco Bell. .^^*

What about... taco bell brand canned baked beans, and tortillas? *muses* That might be possible.

If you can get Taco Bell's liquid cheese I'll love you forever!
