Ah-way-oh-mail-oh.

Comic-Con is happening in San Diego right now. I've gone the last two years, but wasn't able to this year. However, my heart wishes it was there right now—probably somewhere between the cast of Fringe and Richard Armitage. Life feels pret-ty grand after you get a nod from a stormtrooper. But I don't—

I interrupt this terribly boring intro to ask a VERY, VERY important question:

Awesome sauce: two words or one? Awesomesauce? Awesome sauce? I used to think it was two words, but I'm coming around to the one-word camp of thinking. What do you think? Anyway, I'll return you to the most boring intro that any blog has ever seen..

—miss the hundreds of Slave Leias. Seriously, can't women think of more original cosplay?

Mail time!

Incoming:



More shark mail from Missive Maven. Except this time, it's pirate themed (you know, the people who feed scallywags to the sharks and Davy Jones's locker). Would you groan if I told you that this blogpost was brought to you by the letter "aaaarrrrrrrrr?" No? C'mon, that joke is awesome. Ha! And it's seriously the only pirate joke I know.


I love this Mail a Moose from Nicole so much.
Someone needs to create more animals that we can send through the mail. Mail a velociraptor, perhaps?! Naturally, I'm thinking of the paper version of animals, of course. Can you imagine trying to ship a real-life walrus through the mail? That's ridiculous! However, let's say, for hypothetical purposes, say someone—let's call her, Baura—did try to fit a real-life walrus through the mail and got nabbed by the mail cops. But she escaped using a baguette and an expresso, does anyone have a place I (AHEM, I mean Baura) can hide?! Baura needs to drop the fuzz that's after her.





Outgoing:












The fuzz are coming, so that's it! I'm out.

  2. Alas, I have no spare couch for poor Baura. She'll just have to stay on the run! *turns to cops* psst, guys! She's over there! *points* ....now, of course, if it were LAURA who was on the run, well, that would totally be okay. After all, she did let me crash at her place after that whole incident with the snail....you know, even if she DID make me give up most of my freakishly large working pen collection. :) But hey, what are you planning to name your new moose?

    1. Oh, I knew I could count on you! You'll barely know that I'm there, I'm the perfect house guest. In fact, I'll bring you more pens to add to your freakishly large working pen collection--a far bigger stash than the pens I had you give up. It's a testament to how much I appreciate you if I'm feeding your pen addiction. As an aside, neither one of us can be trusted around animals.

      You know, it never occurred to me to name the Moose until you mentioned it! But you're right, he absolutely needs a name! How about Mail a Moose Morrie? Or is the alliteration really cheesy and he'll be the subject of ridicule from his other Mail a Moose friends? Because I'd hate it if he was scorned by other Moose (Meese? Is that the plural of moose?), and had to turn to turtles for companionship.

    1. Hi Michelle! I didn't realize you were the same Michelle! For some reason, it never occurs to me that people who stumble across my blog are the same people I write letters to! I don't know why it surprises me. It's hardly as if the internet is such a "secret" thing. :)

  6. You know what I hate more than automatic stamping machines? When the post office cancels a stamp using a PEN! >> refer incoming letter #8.

    1. I agree, it's annoying when a stamp is cancelled with a pen. However, it seems extra wrong somehow when the stamp features the picture of a person, the Queen in this case! It's like an assassin marking off his victims! Eeek.

    1. Thanks Penny! It look a long time, but I was finally able to shake the pesky neanderthal sickness!

      What a small world! I'm starting to realize that we all have penpals in common! :)

  8. I just discovered you Blog via Julies penpal of the week and I have to say you are refreshingly hilarious! I too wish I was at comic con and I personally think awesomesauce is one word. As for the velociraptor that would be AWESOMESAUCE!

    1. Hi Sara, thanks for visiting and commenting! Being able to mail a velociraptor would indeed be awesomesauce. Though I'd have to figure out how to tame the velociraptor somewhat. It seems inexcusably rude to be like, "Here's a velociraptor in the mail and ooops, I'm sorry Benny the raptor just took a chunk out of your arm...." Awwwwkward. ;)

  9. awesome sauce-- hmm, it definitely sounds like it should be two words when thinking about proper english and what it "looks like" written out.. but since it is a colloquialism, i'm thinking one word makes more sense -- also, just typed it into google, and this is what came up: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Awesomesauce

    lol.. fun little exercise in word analysis :P

  10. One word! For sure it's one. Has to be. I don't think two words have quite the same ring. I mean if it's two, then it could be used to describe... like... buffalo sauce. Because buffalo sauce, my friends, is the awesomest of all the sauces!

    That is all!
