it's a small world

as one who loves billy and marmite, I couldn't resist ordering this. what amazes me is I placed the order on january 17th and even though the small packet was first sent to india it arrived at my house a mere ten days later. wow, it is a small world after all!

hmmmm thinking of marmite, I do think it's time to make some toast for a slather.

click to hear it's a small world - although I have to warn you, you will be at serious risk for an earworm.

Okay, so where's the sot of thenew t-shirt?

Marmite is a new one on me. I wonder if anybody in the US sells it? I know about Australia's Vegemite, and that stuff is horrible, so I may approach with caution.

I love getting packages!

I've never heard of either of these! Just curious...how do you eat the Marmite and what does it taste like?

distracted - haha

roy - the shirt is being washed!
to read about the difference between marmite and vegemite click here I've had both marmite and vegemite - I prefer marmite, but vegemite is okay if no marmite is around. if you find vegemite horrid, I expect you will not enjoy marmite!

we have had marmite tasting parties and marmite-haters out-number marmite-lovers ....I think it is a taste one usually develops as a child, my daughter loves marmite, but husband hates it. I didn't eat marmite as a child but I did have a fondness for salted preserved plums - which most westerners find 'horrible'....

okay way too much information

cathy - I hear there may be less days we can get packages as the p.o. may cut service by a day....

love - the link above also discusses what these two items taste like....I just had a big slice of sourdough bread with a some gruyere on it with a healthy slather of marmite on top - one of my favorite ways to eat marmite....

Ok, I can't resist. "A Package to India." And as for, "It's a Small World," I remember being in one of those tiny boats with tiny child and having the ride break down, trapping us with no way to escape. When I think of madness, the memory pops right up.

Marmite always finds a way through to those who love it!

Haven't experienced marmite, tho it sounds intriguing-- the t shirt looks cool....

"It's a Small World" isn't a risk for an earworm-- it is an earworm-- basically, the title alone is enough to start the earworm worming....

the good thing about some people not liking marmite is: those who love it don't have to share it so much.

So go ahead and enjoy, petite souris, I won't be wrestling the jar away from you, I promise! :-)

First sent to India?? How odd!

My sister has the 'revolution is just a t-shirt away' one.

xo Billy but never yet tried marmite...

Barbara said...

Now that's an international package! The World Is Flat was my first inkling of how well-connected the world really is.

Having lived in Orlando before and during the mouse invasion, I have sat many a time on the Small World ride. I hope the "new" Disney guys leave it alone! They changed the entry exhibit to the Tiki House to a brawl between two birds.
NOT what Walt had in mind, I'm sure! Ice cream cones, hot dogs and Cokes were all 50 cents way back then too. I'm dating myself, I know...

Is this like spam or something?

I'm picky, so this may not be 4 me

I like the phrase"missent to India"...as if some young person who was meant to be a CEO ended up in an ashram..Like Herbie the Elf wanting to be a dentist (Pretty much, I can compare anything to the stop-motion Christmas Special "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer". Not getting a lot of demand for that, however.)

Just say no to marmite. A former friend of mine tried to put it on some pizza she was making for me. No. Thanks.

My sister once sent me a letter from England (to Seattle) which was routed through Australia, and took about a month. I think perhaps it traveled by
barge.

No wait! It was vegemite!
