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
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!!

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!!!!!

I am deprived.. ;__; Did you know that a can of refried beans here costs about 500 yen?!!!?! There is something seriously wrong with that, when I can pick up the same can for 35 cents at home! X_x

Awwwwww~ Well then again, things over here I'm sure cost a lot less over there xD

... LIKE DOUJINSHI. Yes. It's just as important as food. xD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:33 am (UTC)
LOL yes doujinshi can be REALLY cheap here! But food is something I need every day, and doujin I can keep rereading! ;__; And I still can't get these foods here even if I'm willing to pay high prices. ;__;

Well I guess there are some things you have to sacrifice while living there~
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:38 am (UTC)
Unfortunately. ;__; I just wish that I didn't have to sacrifice them, because I'm planning on staying here forever. If it was just for a while, it would be bearable. ;__; You'd think, instead of veggiemite, they'd stock like, raspberry jam and stuff. But nooooooo. X_x

Aaaaaaw ^^() Poor Hi-chan....

Then I guess that means we'll have to visit a lot xD ahaha
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 12th, 2005 08:44 am (UTC)
Heh, yes please come visit!! ^^ Lots and lots!

Mmmmmmmmmm... this sucks. Now I REALLY want Taco Bell.

I'm just butting in but I figure maybe my suggestion will come in handy? *0*;; ~~ Maybe your friend could get a bunch of bean burritos (or whatever it is that you want), wrap them up all nice, freeze them in their freezer, then put them in a small cooler with ice and ice packs in their carry on :x;; Then you could just microwave it at your appartment in Japan? *0*;;
