So, ginger ale. Pale, unassuming, mild-mannered. The rice cake of soft drinks. Right?

WRONG! You've never had ginger ale if you haven't had Blenheim. I was blown away from the first sip. Apparently it's kind of a Carolinas thing, but you should do yourself a favor and hunt down a bottle. Heck, I'll even buy you one if you're on my friends list.

Poll #286047 Hell yeah I want a Blenheim!

Where should I ship it?

Dude!!! My dad and I used to get that stuff at this Russian restaurant in San Diego. But then it closed, and I've never seen it anywhere else, so I haven't had any for years. It's fabulous.

It seems to me you're gonna be losing a lot of money on this deal, but I eagerly accept. Is this ginger ale gonna make my head explode when I drink it?

The head explosion will be strictly metaphorical. Side effects are similar to sugar pills, and include throat clearing, lip smacking, and a slight increase in saliva production.

As for the cost, I say "share and enjoy." I have faith that it'll come back to me eventually in other ways. Besides, I don't have that many LJ friends. :) I will ship them myself by USPS if I can, though, rather than use the web site I linked to above which insists on using UPS. So it may take a while. But it'll be worth the wait.

Hm, I'm sure that part about how "it'll come back to [you]" wasn't supposed to be a hint, but if you mark your return address clearly on the package, you may find something will indeed come back to you. :)

Will do. But everyone please note that this is not at all obligatory, nor did I even mean to suggest it. I meant more in a general karmic way.

How very odd. Is it still? When I look at it on your friends page, it seems fine, but then I'm not logged in as you.

Ooooooh. I've heard tales of that stuff. I hear it's basically delicious battery acid. And delicious with whiskey!

(PS. I will totally send you a bottle of our local delicacy, Hosmer Mountain soda, in any flavor you desire. It might take me a while, but I'll do it!)

Cool, Hosmer Mountain seems very similar, philosophically. Heh, I actually had to concentrate to keep from typing it as "Homsar Mountain."

I'd be up for any flavor. Maybe the Black Cherry or Birch Beer, or Pineapple, that sounds interesting.
