best friends evar :)  

I have the best, and funniest, friends in the world.

Trent sent me a care package filled with the things I’d asked for–hairspray, dental floss, toothpaste, ibuprofen, books (oh lordy, the books! Carol Berg’s BREATH & BONE, Jim Hines’ GOBLIN WAR and Jack Campbell’s COURAGEOUS, all of which I want to read right now), chocolate chips–and a bag of root beer candies and a bag of other-flavor-soda candies, neither of which I asked for and which are the second time somebody in the US has taken pity on my lack of root beer and sent me candies. *laughs and laughs* I really do have the best friends. :)

Root beer. That's that cloying, bubbly, happy stuff that's just like the Federation, isn't it?

Must try it some day.

That's the stuff, all right. You have to try it in the States, though, because the only version of it I've found over here is really vile.

Aww. I wasn't the first person to think of the candies?

Glad the package arrived safely. Make cookies with those chips, don't just eat them! The candies are for eating!

No, Jeri Smith-Ready sent me some last year, too. But it's awesome. You guys are awesome. :) And Ted was downstairs arguing with himself over whether he got to read COURAGEOUS right now or if he had to finish the book he was reading *first*. :)

Ahem. Anyway. You could get a root beer brewing kit! It's pretty easy to do. Here's some examples:
