1) Awesomesauce is indeed one word. Thank you to everyone who had a hand in edumacating me.
2) There are a lot of trekkie snail mailers out there! I was both pleased and amazed at how many people recognized the Enterprise that was on an outgoing letter last week. Fly those geek flags high people, LOVE IT. I'd make a "live long and prosper joke" here, but that would be obvious and lame. Please think up a really clever Star Trek joke....and then pretend I said it. My job here is done.
3) According to the internet, shaving with conditioner leaves your skin feeling smooth and doesn't give you razor rash! However, this just in: it doesn't work. AT ALL. At least it didn't for me! It's actually quite painful. Like, things are eating me alive painful. OUCHIES. What kind of world do we live in where I can't trust what I read on the internet?! Soon you'll be telling me that Elvis isn't alive and living in the Alps; that I can't lose weight through two easy steps a day; or that Bill Gates won't pay me $245 if I forward an email to 10 of my closest friends. Don't tell me any of that isn't true because I'll just lose it. I really will. Plus, I was counting on Bill Gates to cover my retirement. Him and the government official from Nigeria who promised to triple my investment after he gained access to his riches! I'm going to be a fifty-dollar-ionnaire!! YIPPEE!
4) And then the not-so-good realizations...I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with the mail I'm trying to catch up on and can't take on any more new penpals. (I'm sure that disappoints a grand total of minus two readers!) As some of you may know, I'm INCAPABLE of writing a short letter. Some of my letters have become epic letters (in length, though the content sucks. It's just a lot of "No work and no play make Laura a dull duck." Repeat for 16 pages.) so it takes me a really long time to respond to a letter. I'd love to write everyone who is crazy enough to want a letter from me, but unfortunately, I just don't have enough time in the day. And my stupid TARDIS doesn't even work, so I can't even go back and re-live time no matter how much I want to. So if we're not already penpals and you were thinking of writing me a letter, might I suggest writing someone from Penpal of the Week or Send Something instead?
Anyway, enough of the revelations, onto the mail!
Julie called me a stalker the other day. My first thought was "wait a minute....yeah, okay." Then she addressed the envelope to her "crazy friend." THEN she started off her letter by calling me a liar! And all of this goes to show that we're getting to know each other splendidly!!! Though I'm more a bender of truth. So when I say that my letter is around 12 pages, it's actually, technically, maybe, sorta, kinda 856 pages. And when I say that I can eat my own weight in sushi, it really, actually, kinda means that I can eat a whale's weight in sushi. Tomato, tomahto, right?
And the envelope goodies continue! This time from Katri:
great tutorial on how to make your own clear envelopes. Thanks for the awesome mail Katri!
Nicole and I have been postcard penpals for a while now, and we recently did something totally nuts and....wrote each other a letter. However, I found it quite difficult moving the conversation back to a postcard because space is a clearly an issue. So I totally cheated and VOILA! I created my own ghetto version of the postcard/letter. Or the letcard (post-ter?) as I call it:
And that's it! I'm off to eat bear candies! Crap, I just did it again. "They're not candies, they're buttons..." Have an awesome week everyone!
