Nitro's jar arrived today, no taxes or duty, and it doesn't look like Customs opened it. [thumbsup]

She's away now, so I'm waiting until she gets back to open the package, which should be later tonight. [Big Grin]

I have been shipping (or ordering shipment from Ohio) as the requests came in.

Oddly enough, Druid's and dnm's were both shipped the same day from the Ohio location.

N & S and macmcseboy's were shipped several days apart, and I sent those myself, (yes lovingly packed with my own little hands) from Montana as were Cap'n Vic's, Peebs, Xanthine, CommanderShroom, neotatsu, Doco and Serenak. All the rest were shipped from the Ohio location.

Those within the US who provided the requested email address should have received email updates from the USPS.

Tomorrow is the last day for qualifed GCers to place their requests.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I wouldn't worry, unless I get mine before you.

I can't see why they'd worry about a package that reeks of garlic and is addressed to:

I see what you mean. A Newfie in Ottawa. That *is* cause for alarm.

So your mom put sauce on them for 30 minutes?! That seems a tad excessive. [Razz]

I confess, I was slightly confused about how to write that. Perhaps like this??

I told Mom that after covering the ribs with sauce, she should put them in the oven for 30 minutes.

[Confused]

You know, you must really be struggling for something to say if that's all you could say. [Razz]

Perhaps: "I told Mom to put the ribs in the oven for about 30 minutes after covering them with undiluted sauce"

Yes, I'm really struggling for something to say... my sauce isn't here yet and I don't wanna be left out of the conversation. [crazy]

I'm so tempted to just drop into the conversation IRL that I'm expecting a saucy present from a friend overseas, and I can't wait until it arrives until I try it out. Hmm, maybe at church or bible study for maximum effect.

Hmm, now, does that verse really apply in this situation? Particularly given that I'd obviously clarify the comment once they looked shocked for about 1/2 sec.

Edit: Hmm, not sure I agree, but don't want to threadjack this into a theological discussion.

Far be it from me to attempt to bring this thread somewhat back on topic, but I don't suppose we could restrict ourselves to subjects at least tangentially related to the receiving of GG's sauce kits? I have a feeling that those who normally skip over the religious threads wouldn't be terribly happy with this one turning into one.

How do I tell the world "Hello"?

Too bad I can't tell them to all buy Garlic Head sauce. [Frown]

*Shuffling* already? But you're only in your early 40s...

Back on subject....

Anyone feeling any aftershocks from eating heavily-garlicked sauce?
