It's not much, really!

This is it. The list of all lists. I have been in Paraguay for 1 year, and I am homesick for certain...shall we say...important items.

When I say items, I really mean food.

My mom asked me to put together a list of some food and things I wanted to do when i came home for a couple weeks. Oddly enough, the 'Things to do list' was a lot shorter than the 'Foods I have to Eat' when I get home.

Here are some highlights:

Things I haven't done in a year and would like to:
  • Eat Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar (there is NO cheddar chee in PY)
  • Drink good beer
  • Go to the Movies and eat popcorn and hot dogs
  • Go Bowling
  • Take lots of baths
  • Go to the bathroom in the middle of the night without squatting and getting a mosquito bite on my kashi*
  • Get a pedicure (although I'm pretty sure my feet are far beyond help at this point)
  • Get FAT

Food I must eat to accomplish last objective on things to do list:

  • Totinos Pizza
  • Coffee - I've been drinking Nescafe for a year, people!!!
  • Sammiches
  • BBQ - without the sauce. so just grilled meat without chunks of fat and gristle
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • The Feast at the Ameristar Casino
  • a Chinese buffet
  • Pizza Street
  • Nachos

So there you have it folks. Just SOME of the things I've been missing. Trust me, I have lots more, but I only have 3 weeks....

*Guarani for Hoo-Ha

Mmmm. Tillamook Special Reserve! The things I take for granted. You know, I've been waiting for two years to have a real shower with a real bathtub... it feels so good to have one!
` We're still remodeling our new house, but at least we have indoor plumbing and heating (usually).
` And laundry facilities. LAUNDRY FACILITIES! Amazing!

Totinos. Chinese buffet. Dunkin Donuts. FAT!! It's all waiting for you... it's still here.
