Very very cool

Just got my Palm keyboard the other day and installed it this morning. The thing is truly phat. Has all the Palm commands built in. Doesn’t need to be configured. Even has a special “send” button for AIM. Only problem is the Palm connector is hooked up to the keyboard and there isn’t a way to plug in the keyboard if you want, so I can’t leave AIM idle while it’s sitting on it, ’cause the Palm will go off automatically. This is cool tho if I’m having an extended convo on IM or I’m writing an LJ entry. WEEEEE!!!

Funny tho. It looks like a makeshift laptop. I don’t have a laptop but I have an “almost-laptop.” Kinda like those stupid Honda Del Sol cars. It’s almost a convertible, but not quite. (I hate those cars.)

“They’ve got a pepper bar!”

THIS is my first time eating a Quiznos sub!! OMG I’m addicted. I ordered a honey mustard chicken w/ bacon sub. Incredible. When I was waiting in line, I look over on the counter and saw little boxes with different kinds of peppers in them that read on the outside “Pepper Bar.” The little singing rodents were right! They do have a pepper bar!!! So that got the song playing in my head which made me laugh out loud which made people look at me like I’d just gone insane. Little do they know though, I already was insane.

What ever happened to those commercials?! Those were the best!!

I’m not a loser after all (well, today anyway)

I just instantly won a 7 oz bag of Jolly Ranchers (I call them Horny Cowboys) in my packet of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!! Of course, this is after the first packet got jammed in the vending machine. And the 2nd packet I tried to buy got jammed after it pushed the first one out. But the first one was a winner and it all worked out even.

I found my gummy candies!!!

For those of you who haven’t tried them, try Kasugai gummy candies. These are the best things you can ever eat. They make a mess cause they’re one of those candy packages that has everything wrapped in something else that’s wrapped. Oh they’re so good tho. So if you ever find youself in a Japanese 7-11, buy many.

This was after an interesting day in service. We were on our way to my territory in Watertown. This is me, Becky, and Veronica who I just met today who is really nice. Anyway, we got lost in Cambridge. I relied on Mapquest. Nuff said. OK, so I’ll elaborate. We’re trying to get to Watertown in the easiest way possible. I know that the Sullivan Sq. area is in the right direction so we head there before I enter info into Mapquest. So it leads us on this interesting journey through Cambridge, but half the time Mapquest says “right” it means “left” and vice-versa. So after much time of driving around, we got very familiar with Kirkland Ave., which we drove up and down about 4 times in our quest for Watertown. Cambridge is just weird. Some streets have names that are so long that they have to print them in 24 pt type on the street signs, some one-way signs that have been bent so you can’t tell which street it belongs to, and most streets just don’t have street signs at all.

So anyway, long story short (too late), we never made it to Watertown. We did, however, make it to a friend’s house near Central Sq. the hard way where we thought we were picking someone up. It’d be great if it were that easy. Alas, though… apparently he doesn’t live there anymore. He moved a while ago.

So we leave Central Sq. en route to Porter Sq. We say “Hello” to Kirkland Ave. again. If anyone ever needs directions to Kirkland Ave., let me know.

We then stop for lunch at Porter Exchange. I never knew this place existed. Cute place. It’s this mall-ish thing in Porter Square where everything is Asian. I felt so out of place for a while, and then I thought, “Oh yeah. Nevermind.” We eat at this Japanese (?) place where I got stuff. It was good. The soup was odd. It was like I had to stir it every few seconds cause it would all congeal at the bottom like salad dressing, but looked more like saw dust in water.

It was just one of those surreal days. But then I found a little Japanese quicky mart that was just amusing. It sold most of the food stuff that I’ve seen on engrish.com including the “Men’s Pocky” and the “Peach Collon.” Very amusing. I will be back. To top it all off, this charming little store had my gummy candies. And they didn’t hike the price when I got to the register like this one place in NY did. That just made my day. So the gummy candies tied this whole drawn out story together. That’s just how cool they are. You must buy them.
