Things I miss and don't miss

After failing miserably to cook rice the old fashioned way (boiling water) today, I realized I really missed the convienence of my rice cooker. This made me think of other things I'm miss or don't miss:

Things I Miss:

  • rice cooker
  • an iron with a built-in steamer
  • a TV with more than 3 English TV chanels
  • my own washer and dryer
  • diverse restaurant choices
  • a gas stove (my stove here is a cermic type... the time-constant on changing the temperature is nearly forever! large heat intertia in the ceramic...)
  • my collection of spices and sauces
  • Hanging out with friends (my crowd here is still fun to be with, but they're a bit older)

(hm... noticing a trend here..)

Things I don't miss:

  • My commute to work (it's even closer here!)
  • fast food (although a spicy chicken sandwich sounds nice right now)
  • Grocery store selection
  • Minnesota weather (it's unusually warm here)
  • Complacency (every day is an adventure here)
  • Yardwork!
