How can roasted sweet potatoes be annoying you ask? It's not because I think they taste bad, or because they're hard to get. In fact this time of year they're super easy to get. There are people who drive around in trucks who cook and sell them, sort of like an ice cream truck. Unfortunately, unlike an ice cream truck the way they get your attention isn't a nice catchy tune. It's a steam whistle. It doesn't stop and is super loud. The first few times a heard it I thought it was an air raid siren going off. At least those stop; the yakiimo whistles continues on until it's out of earshot. Heaven forbid they stop. I had to listen to one for half an hour today.
Omurice is basicaly fried rice with an omelet thrown on top. The twist? The fried rice is made with ketchup (Although sometimes they use other stuff). I really like it when it's made with ham or sausage, but normally Japanese people use chicken. There aren't really a lot of rules when it comes to what you put in the rice, so it gets adjusted a lot. I've made some really kick'n omurice using salsa. On top you can put more ketchup, demi-glace sauce or even gravy. It's a great way to make a meal out of left over rice.
Now, some Japanese people claim Omurice is western food, but that is a lie, a delicious delicious lie.
Back in college my friends and I got to partake of some rather.... interesting beverages. Grass Jelly and some weird rice drink among them.... I did not like them much at all. The texture was very strange. Now, weird bits in my drinks do not phase me at all. Tea Apple drink with konyaku jelly and apple bits, that is pretty tasty stuff. Muscat aloe drink with bits of aloe? Pretty tasty too. Amazake (It's a sweet drink made of rice, served warm)? Best part of winter festivals!
.... and Japan's Kit-Kats are still strange I found some ones that I think are apple carrot.... that's what they have on packaging anyway. They sorta taste like very sweet V8 Splash. They are much better than the Ramune ones.
So, I've been seing quiet a few people doing this, although the direct source for me was sadisticsaint
The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?
( List under the cut )
I don't think I've seen anybody go below 10 on this list, but I guess the type of people who do this meme are the type of people who actually read?
It was May 11th that canceled my service with them.... sorta. I had no problem with the phone, but they wouldn't let me cancel the DSL. Why? Because the name hadn't switched over yet and there was an early termination fee that was going to be charged to my former roommate. That part's important because I called this morning because my final bill was $65 dollars on a billing cycle of 5 days. The phone people were like 'We charged you 7 cents, you need to talk to DSL' So I talk to DSL and they said that they charged 32.61 or something like that, the rest was run over from the last cycle because of how the bills fall. Okay, I was pissed that is was that much, but the have a mimium charge, and I get that. Then she tells me that my bill should be higher and too expect that in the mail. Why you ask? The $79 dollar early termination fee should have been on it. Um no, they cannot charge me for that because my name isn't the one on the contract, as stated by about 4 people when I tried to cancel the account. She kept on saying they would though, which, made me rather angry. Because yeah, right hand meet left hand and all that jazz. I'm going to let it go though until I get a bill for it in my name, because the majority (and common sense b/c of the contract and everything) has stated that the late termination fee, not my problem.
she was still alive. The murdered chanted, "Toma sota balcu" as he buried her.
Now that you have read the chant, you will meet this little girl. In the middle of the night she will be on your ceiling. She will suffocate you like she was suffocated. If you post this, she will not bother you. Your kindness will be rewarded.
I started watching Papuwa. It is very strange... Maybe someday I'll write my opinion's on it, but right now I'd rather find something amusing to read, so well, that means the end of this entry.
