So, as I think about things, Japan has changed my tastes somewhat.
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.

I've been thinking about getting a sewing machine for a while. I wish they weren't so expensive (They've even worse there than in the US!). I can find lots of the little mini ones, they're very popular here, but I know that for the type of sewing I'd be doing it wouldn't really work well. In the stores they run about 20,000 ($200) and up for a real machine. I'm not going to pay that much for something that is probably going to be impossible to bring back to the US with me. Oh well, maybe I'll get lucky and find one on sale. Sometimes amazon has them pretty cheap. It's still probably not worth it. I sewed some at home where I have a machine, but it'd take me a long time to get the value/cost to even out... and I have one at home.  I could make cute things if I had one though. Oh well, I'll figure it out when I work out my budget for next month. I know a few people in the area that might be interested in a used one when I leave, so it isn't likely to be a complete loss.
