I came across this today and had to share it. It’s a beer vending machine. We soooo need this in the States (in my living room).

Also, I signed up for Twitter today, so you can favorite me today at http://twitter.com/strugglngwriter. Just another thing to keep me from writing. 🙂

You’ll never believe it, Struggling Writer, but the first time I lived in Japan, 1996, there was a machine almost identical to that one opposite my apartment. It’s a pity I don’t drink beer!! What I loved about Japanese vending machines is that they sell hot green tea in winter and cold green tea in summer. Why hasn’t Australia caught on to that?!
Regarding Twitter, I don’t get it. It seems like you’d need a phone that allows text messages so you could tweet all day. I just have a computer and three small kids. I’m lucky to write my post at 5 am while they are sleeping.
Then I answer comments sporadically throughout the day. How does this thing of which you speak work?
A beer vending machine?! Now I’ve seen it all! Another blogging buddy who lives in Japan did a whole series of photos of vending machines, it’s just amazing what they dispense! 🙂
Helen – I could totally go for tea in vending machines too!
cardiogirl – I didn’t get Twitter for a while, but it seems fun. We’ll see if I get bored with it.
Vanilla – Japan seems cooler now 🙂
Actually, Struggling Writer, something else, you see the big beer cans in the top row? Well in real life they’re *massive*! I couldn’t believe it when I saw them. I think I even posted some home to UK at vast expense.
. . . stocked with Guinness. Ohh yeah!
You’re Twittered . . .
I saw the funniest website about all the funny vending machines Japan has – the funniest had to be a boiled egg vending machine. I just cracked up on that one!!
I spent a semester in Austria, and just outside of my student dorm room was a beer vending machine. It was great! Two euro for a 750ml bottle. I was in heaven.
