I’m on the train (that I looked up the arrival time on Routsey), listening to a song I just downloaded from iTunes, I just paid my rent with the BofA application and am currently blogging about it all to tumblr.
I can feel Eric cringing! An interesting concept and probably better than Pizza Hut but still… pizza out of a vending machine?

ROME (Reuters Life!) – A vending machine that bakes fresh pizza in minutes for a few euros has got Italian chefs in a whirl before it hits the streets in the coming weeks.
The bright-red “Let’s Pizza” machine uses infra-red rays and technology developed at the University of Bologna to knead flour and water into dough, spread it with tomato sauce and a choice of topping, and cook it — all in less than three minutes.
Its developer, Claudio Torghele, says the machine has proved popular in trials in two Italian regions, but gourmets say it is an affront to traditional methods of cooking the classic dish.
"This is not just a vending machine, it’s a mini-pizzeria," said Torghele, 56. "It has windows where you can watch the pizza-making process. Kids, including my own, love it: when the machine is working, there’s always a crowd."
