huge favor to ask strangers

Post by pearlandearl »

hi.
we just moved here a few weeks ago from the east.
and this is a total long shot, but is there anyone who could PM me info on a hookup for, uh, some herb for our thanksgiving turkey?

i know it's a lot to ask. just a very nice, laid back couple looking to feel a little more at home.

ok.
thanks.

You moved onto the internet? That's amazing! How'd you manage it?

Tell me, frankly -- were there bribes to teamsters involved?

Pardon our moderator, he's a literalist. And by that I mean he reads stuff that's smart.

I assume you've moved to seattle. I live in the awesome state of NY in the glorious medicaid strapped county of Erie, in the stupendous teacher beating city of Buffalo. I work on the largest freshwater island in the world. Thus I cannot help you with your seattle seasoning for the season. Perhaps others on the board can hook-a you up.

if I would want to season my turkey I'd go to the shop to buy the herbs I need.
but then again, I live in the Netherlands, so that's not going to do you any good either.

by the way, just out of curiosity, is there something about this band to inspire this post?

no. no particular reason. it's just a great album + i came across the board while bored. and it seemed like a safe place to get an honest answer. or not.
no offense intended.

or maybe dead babies from the sky made me feel a need to self-medicate.
kidding.
thanks anyways.

and yeah, we're in seattle now. for now

Welcome to the board, you should stay here too.

Are your names really Pearl and Earl? I hope so.

Um, it seems to me that one of three things is happening here:

1. I'm the only one who gets it.

2. I'm reading something into it that isn't there.

3. You guys are all being ironic.

I wonder which one it is, or if it even matters which one it is?

I wasn't being ironic, it's the goddarn honest truth that those spices can be bought in a shop over here, although why they are called coffeeshops, I don't know. wait a minute, doesn't Seattle have lots of coffeeshops?

and my question to P&E was not meant in a bad way at all, I was just curious.

I mean, this is all so alien to me, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, so I'm not familiar with all these different kind of seasonings [insert winking smiley here, Heather]
