A USA Shopping Question

Tue Mar 23, 2004 8:58 pm

Hey people,
707cmf is currently in the US of A and I thus have the opportunity to have some available-in-the-US-only items to be brought back to me.
So what should I put of my shopping list ?

UTA, no one's really sure what it's made of...or why it's so flaky.

Supersized clothing. As you know, we like to live large in the States. Majestic, I call it.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

Oh yeah!! I like your clothing style. It is so relaxing and comfy.... I even wear that kind of clothes. But it's not often you a see a person in Europe wearing clothes like that. They are more casual here..

Pepto Bismol

I agree, I bought a big bottle in Chicago two weeks ago, this stuff is excellent when you drunk a little bit in the night before Big grin.

The problem with dragging DVDs back to Dickbonia is the regional encoding. A movie that plays on a US DVD player probably won't play on one of theirs.

Damn Liberal Media

Make sure he gets everything he needs because the quality is 10 times better, and everything in France sucks.  Big grin

Make sure he gets a guide to American Baseball too, because if you look at Usairwys757's signature, you will be horribly misguided.

What part of the US is he in. I'm not going to insult you by saying deodorant soap and all that because from my experience in Europe, the Swiss and Italians smelled worse. Seriously I would suggest to bring back a copy of NCAA Football 2003, and some Girl Scout cookies. Samoas, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs are the best. Another thing is bring back a lot of pictures, as I regret not taking more on my trips to India, and Europe. Bringing home a nice American lass wouldn't hurt your friend either.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yeah, it will hurt, seeing as they are "partners" in life.
