Let’s get real. No one wants the oatmeal raisin famous Amos cookies in any circumstance, much less when they are seeking satisfaction from a vending machine. This is like when instead of peanut m&ms, they have those gross crunchy m&ms.

The vending machine is now officially named Lance. For the obvious reasons.

Okay, so one of my best friends in the law school is the vending machine in the basement. I pay a lot of attention to the vending machine, and visit almost every day. Sometimes the vending machine gives me free stuff.

I don’t see the guy that fills up the vending machine very often, I see the coca-cola man a lot, and we are pretty good friends. But this morning I did get a chance to run into the vending machine man. And let me tell you, he hurt my feelings. All I wanted to do was buy some orange crackers, and he told me that I would just have to wait, in a tone that led me to believe that it would be a while. He didn’t even turn around to speak to me, he just acted like I was being an absurd child.

I’m not an overly sensitive individual, but sometimes people use an especially ugly tone of voice that cuts me to the bone. I was already late to class, so I had to leave, feeling chastised and without my orange crackers that I eat almost every day. And it stung a little.

1. I love my new gmail account. It is awesome. I love gmail notifier – not only does it notify me when I have new mail, it gives me a blurb, and it notifies me each time I have a new message – but it is only for a second and can be easily ignored. Much better than outlook express. UGA wireless network won’t let me use outlook any more because of viruses – and gmail came at just the right time.

2. I love vending machines. For all reasons imaginable.

I thought I had won the vending machine lottery the other day, but I think I was tricked. I guess this was probably Monday, and I was buying crackers out of the vending machine. When I went to retrieve my crackers, I found two candy bars in the machine for the taking. So I took both of them and hurried off because Shannon and Anisa were waiting on me. I was really excited.  The candy bars were a new breed, some sort of M&M candy bar, called M-azing. I gave one of the candy bars to Shannon and kept one for myself (Anisa said it was okay). Then when I got back to the library I told Jimmy and Andrew about my good luck, and they told me that I shouldn’t eat the candy bar because it was probably poisoned, especially since it was a kind of candy bar that no one had ever seen before. I thought this was a little paranoid, but since I have a problem with paranoia I decided to leave the candy bar with the two of them (this was probably always the plan, like when your older siblings would talk you into giving them something by convincing you it sucked), but anyway, I fell for it. On my next trip to the vending machine I thought I would check for the candy bar among the other candy bars in the coils. And here is the weird thing, that made me glad I didn’t eat the candy bar, THE M&M CANDY BAR ISN’T EVEN AN OPTION TO BUY!! So the vending machine in which I found the candy bar doesn’t even sell the candy bar. So where did it come from? Was it a clever marketing ploy by Mars to get people to try out their new candy bar? do they instruct the vending machine man to strategically place the candy bars where they will be found by unsuspecting, hungry law students, or am I being paranoid again? I feel manipulated, or something. Any thoughts?
