"Gimme Your Stuff": Kirin Beer

Okay this post is particularly for the purpose of inticing m ss ng v w l (Anjali, I'll have the candy up for you soon) but if anyone else is interested in trading for the items that I put up, all you have to do is join Gimme Your Stuff, a cultural exchange blog where you can trade all sorts of things from food, clothing, trinkets, or whatever else you want to trade. Go ahead and check it out!

This is Kirin Beer:

Aaaah....Japanese beer....
This here is the good stuff. Kirin Ichiban is most certainly "ichiban" - that is to say, Kirin Ichiban is "number 1". Now I know that I live in California and that I am offerring to trade a Japanese beer but this really is my favorite. This beer has a golden label, a golden hue, and to me tastes like gold.

Again, anyone interested in trading for this item, go and check out Gimme Your Stuff and see what it's all about.

Hee hee hee! You are so funny, Tilde! And YES, you are first!!!
And that's cool if you have nothing to offer :)
Did you get a chance to at least check out Gimme Your Stuff? Pretty cool blog, isn't it?

I so totally did! It is really cool! Will it work-I mean-will someone send you something for your beer? Or wait-are you asking for beer?

Anyhoo, people who get set up on Gimme Your Stuff can contact each other and set up an exchange. Currently I'm trying to trade the Kirin beer for some Australian beer that "m ss ng v w l" advertised on his blog.

cool idea with the gimme your stuff blog!

Trading is very sweet and everything, but wouldn't it be cool if people would just give you their stuff, as sort of implied by the title of the blog? Especially if that stuff is beer?

Le Chit, we both live in CA.

Q. What goods are particularly Californian?

karen is so totally NOT dumb. but I did forget what I wanted to say. OH yeah! How do I set uup that friggin blog-roll thing so it is easier for a computer illiterate like ME to add links of dudes and chicks I dig? *thought I'd ask a chemist.*

Welcome aboard LeChit:) Glad yu decided to join our little site. I recommend and international swap for the reson of keeping things interesting... AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH it is much fun-ness-osity-athon

So, basically, one country's crap is another country's exotic collectable, if I am understanding the page correctly.

For instance, in Paris, technically Thunderbird would be "exotic imported fortified wine."

Blogger Le Chitelier said...

Oooooo, I hear German beer is very very good.

Yes, don't we wish we could just take it all for ourselves?
When I think California, the first thing that comes to mind is our produce. And that leads me to think of Napa Valley and Amador County. I'm sure you've already tried their wine. Isn't it good???? That would be a great thing to trade. But you know what, you can trade any old thing like household items, old trinkets, stuffed dolls, orpuzzles. If you were to dig through your closet or pantry and find a bunch of stuff you don't want anymore but could still be usefull to someone else, those might all be worthy of a swap.
And heck, I'm over here offering Japanese beer, not American, heh.

Did you mean to say America is the land of plenty, hee hee hee....

That a type of beer? Never heard of it...
See Ing?! They have different beer on the other side of the US!!!

Aw girl, you are not dumb!! All you have to do is figure out something to swap, then create a post like mine about your swap item, then follow the instructions on the Gimme Your Stuff site (i.e. enter you name, post-http-code, and country) and you're all set! If you need ideas of what to swap or want to know what you would like to recieve just browse the ambassadors list on the right collum on Gimme Your Stuff. You'll see my name there under California, North America.

I so totally agree that Karen is not dumb!!
Let me check on that blogroll thing and I promise I'll get back to you later today :)
*thinking of erasing entire hard drive just to get rid of that damned virus*

Thank you!

....and sometimes you can trade non-crappy things too, like my Japanese beer for instance. VERY good stuff!

You haven't heard of Molson's????? OMG!! Canadians have real beer! LOL I'll send you some for nothing! LOL The site looks pretty cool. It would be hard for me to swap things though unless I could use my work address! Sure as hell can't use my home address to receive things! lol

June 06, 2006 7:48 PM  
Blogger Le Chitelier said...

Hmmm, I should try Molson's sometime.

If the people at your work are cool with it, I'm sure the person sending would have no problem at all to send a package to your work. That sucks that you can't use your home address. What is it, Dork is causing the problem with that?

June 06, 2006 8:05 PM  
Blogger CowGirl said...

Dork is definitely the problem! He doesn't even know about my little blogland identity, he'd have a frigin heart attack if he knew.......hmmmmmm...ideas!! lol I have to sneak online at night most times! He's away this week though :) hehehe!

June 06, 2006 8:17 PM  
Blogger CowGirl said...

Oh and yes you should try Molson's!

June 06, 2006 8:17 PM  
Blogger CowGirl said...

Seriously I have nothing to swap! There is absolutely nothing exciting around me! Unless someone wants a bag of milk! LOL Oh man! I need help! I'm going to bed!

June 06, 2006 8:32 PM  
Blogger Rikki said...

Just use your work address crazy secret identity woman!

June 06, 2006 8:38 PM  
Blogger Le Chitelier said...

Dork is really starting to make me mad. What, you can't even recieve packages at home because of him? What is his problem?????

....a BAG of milk?..... hell, why not a shoe full of milk.

I think Cowgirl should say TO HELL WITH DORK and just recieve things at home. HER HOME.

....but seriously, Cowgirl, as long as your work is cool with that, you should give it a shot. Try cleaning out your pantry or your closet, you never know what you'll come up with that you don't want anymore and someone else might.

June 06, 2006 8:47 PM  
Blogger CowGirl said...

get you mad, think of me! lol I'm finally starting to get a back bone and am starting to stick up for myself but it is very very hard to do anything for myself!

Yes a bag of milk, not a shoe lol, ohhhhh you get your milk in jugs doon't you?? See my milk comes in bags.

I'll take a look around and see what I can find.

June 06, 2006 9:23 PM  
Blogger Le Chitelier said...

Yes! Get that backbone going girl!!! You deserve your basic human rights. And that includes not being oppressed by people like Dork!

Milk in bags... that really is new to me.

As long as that urine has lots of washed out hormones and antibiotics, I'll take it!
