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!!!!!

Is Nagoya where the AFB is? I keep hearing online that there's a Taco Bell in Nagoya.

You can stand outside the base and beg passing soldiers to get you some. .^^

I seriously will. Or get arrested trying to get in. I don't understand why American's aren't allowed onto our own base! X_x

They're...mmm.... The military can be real asses towards civilians. .>_> Like I almost missed my plane back from England because the stupid bus driver wouldn't let me on the bus going to the airport. He's all like "no civilians," and I'm like "dude, I'm three feet tall, I take up no space, we're going to the same place, LET ME ON!" but he wouldn't. .-_-

Yes. I will say straight out that I don't like the military. Never have, never will. Never will like the reasoning behind it either.

Well, this is rather disappointing... no matter how far you get away from the states, the stupidity will always follow. ;-;

Yokosuka (or that could be the naval base, I don't remember). There's both an AFB and a navy base in the Tokyo/Yokohama area. There could be another military base in Nagoya, I dunno.
