Random Remembrance, Plus
- There are no unit prices in Japanese supermarkets. So when you're trying to decide if the jumbo size is really worth it you're left to your mental math or cell phone calculator. Added difficulty--in US it's a given that you'll save money if you buy the gargantuan box of cereal, but that's not always the case in Japan. A six pack of soda costs the same as six single sodas. It makes the unit price more important, and it's lack more glaring.
I just clipped my nails--it's like an instant +5 for tasks like typing or using my electronic dictionary. Instant ease! It also ups my typing speed--I feel like I'm flying right now!
Mark bought the new Final Fantasy and is loving it. It's neat because I get to watch, ask questions, and enjoy the storyline, but he does all of the fighting/grinding/leveling. -_^
I hope everyone who is eligible votes on Tuesday, if you haven't already! I just watched the HBO documentary on Dibold voting machines, and how easily they are hacked... I might vote absentee next year, just to be safe.
Today I fiddled around, crocheting and knitting some cup sleeves (the cardboard ring that protects your fingers from the heat of your drink). I don't have an actual Starbucks cup here to test it on, so I eyed the size from memory. I get to test them out tomorrow... we'll see how it goes.
I open tomorrow, but I don't want to go to sleep now. It's my day off, I want to enjoy as much of it as possible! The reality of waking up at 3:30 am is fast approaching, though. Boo.
