    Let's trade: A Cyburbia Game.

    Let's say I want something I can't find easily in my local area; like some Tim Horton's donuts or some Seattle coffee. I'd then post my request here. You read my request, you have access to the goods I need, and you offer a trade. For instance, you would want some KC Bar-B-Que sauce. I want something that costs about $20, you'd request about $20 worth of sauce. I then choose to accept or reject your offer. We each pay for the shipping out of our pocket for the item(s) we send. The other party to the transaction does the same. The newest Cyburbia Game

    I'll go first. I want a "Same Rules, Same Rights, Same Road" bumper sticker for my Volvo. The bicycle people should have some just laying around. Cheap enough game starter.

    PS - I'm not responsible for any federal agents that my show up at your house if you trade with MikeD.

    I want a blueberry muffin from the Muffin Tin located in Traverse City, Michigan. I haven't had one in almost 3 years. I will gladly pay anyone $50 to bring me a fresh one here at my office in mid-Michigan on any workday morning.

    I am always looking for pint glasses for my collection.

    Prefer microbrewery or bicycle related ones, the odder the better or event related preferred. I already have most of the easy ones to get.

    Let me know what you got and what you want in exchange for them.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    a good life force? Is your life force funky?
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    I have about half dozen pint glassess in storage, and I recall they are all from U.K. breweries. I'd be glad to part with them for some burned copies of CD's, your pick.

    There really is such a thing as "good" Chai? I thought it was just one of those marketing things.

    I'd be looking for a pair of black over the ankle Red Wing boots--but not the ones with the really thick lug sole. Steel toe--you know just a really good pair of dress boots.

    Er, right, chai. I'm a horrid speller if you haven't noticed. I've tasted stuff that I like, and there's a youpie tea blender in town that makes a pretty good blend, but I've picked through Little India and that's all I can find. No place in Chinatown carries it ether, but they have just about every variant of Oriental tea, which is nice.

    You're in Chicago, right? Try your local market, or Starbucks.

    If anyone needs something readily available in Canada (i.e. something I can get here in Alberta), I would be happy to trade for food products I can't get here. Redvines, redvines, redvines!

    I have some Himalayan Darjeeling that was smuggled out of Tibet in the anal cavity of a Sherpa fleeing the Chi-Coms. Its good shit man. <= Family connections. I'll let it go at $10.00 an ounce. Deal?

    I want two pounds of fried shrimp from Dot & Etta's Shrimp House on 9 Mile and Greenfield in Oak Park, MI. It's just outside of Detroit. I'd gladly pass on any Chicago delicacy (a Chi-town hot dog or deep-dish pizza, perhaps?) to anyone who gets it.

    Two pounds is probably 30 bucks. And don't forget the hot sauce.

    I want some Dixie Beer... (Planderella)

    Also, I'm a shotglass collector... so, if people need chunks of obsidian or other stuff from Oregon, lemme know.

    I'd be willing to trade a shotglass for some rain- AZ doesn't get much. *stupid desert*

    Just drive on any rural road. If you want the living plant, bring your camo gear, plenty of weapons and stealth military training.

    Perhaps a trade may be worked out... a couple bags of Red Vines for a couple bags of Smarties? I rarely eat candy, but I love English chocolate.
