Two More Days - I Can Almost Taste It.

The convention is so close I can almost taste it.
I'm really excited. I modified my costume, cut some things off of it.
I think it looks a lot better now. Less frumpy.

I'm really excited about the costumes, but I'm SUPER excited about buying different japanese treats.
Ever heard of Ramune?It's a japanese soft drink. From what I know, it always comes in a glass bottle.
The way the bottle is shaped is special. There's a little glass marble at the top of the bottle. When you go to open it, you press the marble down. The neck of the bottle catches it.
It's really neat actually. I have a bottle from last year. I'm hoping to try a few different flavors since I'll be there for a few days.

What about Pocky?Pretty much, it's cracker sticks with different kind of flavoring at the top. It's really popular in Japan, and extremely popular in America within the Japan-loving groups.

They'll also be selling a bunch of different candies and treats.The last time I went, I wasn't prepared. I didn't bring enough money, and I didn't plan ahead well enough. Now that I've planned... I'm gonna have some fun.

Not only do they have treats like this, they also sell different noodles and foods. Not a lot, since they prefer you spend your money at the snack bar (American food, boring). But I remember having to get someone to buy me a bowl with instant noodles.
But they were good, not like the instant noodles we have here.

So yeah, as I said... I can almost taste it.

And hey, what's the big idea? 78 followers? I mean sure... it's an even number. But that's not what I had in mind! Whyioughta...Hey, it may look funny, but it's drying up my acne.

That drink looks awesome.

We used to have Japanese exchange students live with us, all the time in high school, and believe me, we were never excited about their candy. Not very good. Now, bring on the Swiss exchange students!

They have all that stuff, drins and candy at Japan in Epcot in Florida, but as it is IN Japanese I can't read what kind of candy it is so I chicken out. Maybe when we go in the spring I will be brave and buy a bunch to try out.
