I usually don’t do things like this, but I have been missing home a bit lately and would like some reminders.
Ideas for anyone who wants to send me a care package. Email me and I will send you my address so that you can send the package and give me a little bit of America.
Reese’s peanut butter cups, bite size or regular it doesn’t matter. Reese’s Pieces are also acceptable.
Tootsie Rolls pops. Any flavor, but lots of them.
World’s Finest Teas: Blueberry flavored black tea.
Macaroni and cheese in a box (again any brand–even generic store brand–will do). I know it is gross, but there is something oddly comforting about it, and it is not something I can easily get here.
Cliff Bars–any kind except for apple or banana flavored.
That is all I can think of right now. I understand it is expensive to ship things overseas and I am not expecting anyone to actually send me anything, but a guy can dream, right?
UPDATE: There is a magazine called The Believer that I enjoy. Also, The New Yorker, or the latest edition of the Best non essential American writing (or something like that–you will find it in a bookstore next to all the other BEST OF books).
