|You can just buy 3 months of Xbox LIVE for twenty bucks. Wouldn't that be a bit cheaper than sending your hard drive out?|
Or be even cheaper and make a free Xbox Live account.

Though, there's an 85% chance that your money and hard drive will mysteriously be converted into beer.

So you'd just need to connect your Xbox to the internet for the time that it would take you to download it and never have to connect it again, if you don't want to.
And if you were to end up finding a trustworthy person who wouldn't just keep your hard drive and money, if he downloads the DLC to your hard drive, but on his console, it's very likely that you won't be able to use the DLC once you hook your hard drive back up to your console without having to be signed into a Live account.
With some (or all?) DLC on Live, you must be signed into Xbox Live with the account that you used to download the content, if you used a different console (not hard drive) than the one you're playing on to download it.
So that would basically make the whole process of sending your hard drive to someone to download it pointless, not to mention very risky, of course.
Finding a way to get your Xbox connected to the internet and setting up a free silver Live account and downloading the DLC with your own console would be the best option for you, if you don't plan on having your Xbox connected to the internet afterwards.
Just make sure that you use your own console along with the hard drive, wherever you end up connecting to the internet.

|get a laptop and connect it to your xbox. it works just like an adapter.|
True, you could set your laptop to act as a wireless bridge for your Xbox and download it using that method, although you'll generally get pretty poor speeds due to being connected through both a wireless & bridged connection.
