San Jose, Uncategorized USA: THE BAD PARTS 25 May 2010

Hello World. Remember me? I’m baaaaacccckk 🙂

So…2 bad things that happened whilst I was in the USA:

  1. I put on 2 KG. I suppose the frantic shoving of fabulous American food into my face didn’t help, but I had so little time, and SO SO much to eat! It was a whirlwind of lots of Mexican food, burgers, pizzas, more burgers, ice creams, more burgers, Cinnabons, fried chicken, more burgers, cupcakes, oh, and….. burgers too. OH HOW I ADORE AMERICAN FOOD. Best food in the world. Unfortunately, gaining almost 5% of my whole body weight (!!!) wasn’t on the agenda, but it happened. Boo.
  2. Some dipshit stole my camera. Am especially furious about this, and have spent the past few days daydreaming about various torture techniques to implement on this little shit. We were out clubbing on Santana Row (a really nice/ritzy area) so I didn’t even think thieves would be in the area. I wrapped up my (brand new) wallet with my camera in my big scarf, and put it on a chair and pushed it under the table, and the shit actually opened it up and took my camera (but, miraculously not my wallet). Still can’t believe someone would actually steal, how do they sleep at night knowing they’re a low life piece-of-shit thief?? Worst of all, ALL MY PHOTOS were on it.. not just the USA trip photos, but tons of photos for months and months before that too. I feel totally sick just thinking about it.

Fortunately, lots of good stuff happened too.. basically everything else in the trip except for those 2 above. And obviously, I can’t blog it properly since all the photos are stolen. But I will still do bits and bobs and probably just *ahem* steal photos off the official sites since I still really want to remember the trip, and for reference for next time 😛


Bye bye USA!

    I’m so sorry to hear about that! But glad to hear the rest of the trip went well. Do share where you ate, because I’ve never spent much time in San Jose myself, so I’m curious.

      Ya i”ve decided I will still do food posts, but with either no pics or pics taken from their official sites. I need it for my own reference for when I go back, hehe 😛

    What a bummer about your camera :{ Hope you can replace it (but not the photos, ouch!). Coincidentally, Jackie O on the radio over here was talking this morning about the baggage handlers in LA stealing an expensive new camera lens from *inside* her suitcase. Seems like things can happen no matter how careful you are.

    On a completely unrelated note… do I spy a new Chanel on your lap??? 😉

    The serious side effects mentioned must be reported to your health care provider right away as they are not likely to get better on their own – clomid averages , otherwise you can count on these symptoms going away on their own.

      I agree – it’s very hard to eat healthily in North America – unless you prepare your own food.

      Humble street food in China looks a whole lot more appetizing and good-for-you! If we had “fast food” like that in Canada, I’d eat out a whole lot more.

      To Beverly: sorry to hear about the photos – we all know here how important your pics are to you! I guess to be safe in the future, you’ll have to buy smaller memory cards and change them before each new trip – you shouldn’t have to, though!
