What is Marmite, exactly? Chris loves the stuff — me? I’ve never tried it. It just doesn’t sound good to me – after all, it’s yeast extract. He eats it on toast or bagels with butter. I’ll stick with my strawberry jam, honey or peanut butter on my toast and bagels, thank you very much. It seems it’s a British thing – – and since he is a transplanted Brit – he takes any chance he can get to get his hands on a jar of Marmite, not matter how big, or how small. If he happens to be lucky enough to get his mitts on a jar — the man is in Marmite heaven! Like a kid with a new toy!
To the point that he left a message on Christina’s blog. She had a post mentioning that she was travelling to England – – so Chris, the desperate Brit, left a comment on her blog with a desperate plea for Marmite! She has some awesome pictures posted on her blog from her trip, as well – you should check them out!
Marmite! Marmite! Marmite!
Fast forward a week or two later – I got an email from Christina today. She was requesting an address she could send the jar of Marmite that she brought home for Chris!! I couldn’t believe that she actually did it – what a total sweetheart! I offered to send her some $$ via PayPal for the Marmite and the shipping – but she would have nothing to do with that. The random kindness of some people just never ceases to amaze me.
So Chris will have his Marmite soon -and that makes him a very, very happy Brit! I have to be careful – he’s going to start making me barter my designs and hosting service for jars of Marmite!! lol
