Hello fellow penpallers! How is everyone today?..... Oh yeah? Tell me more..... WOW! That's amazing! What did you do?.... YOWZA! That's so exciting! Okay, I apologize but I have to interrupt you there because I have to move on with the blog post show. Let's catch up more later, okay?
Did you see what we did there? WE JUST HAD A CONVERSATION. WHOA. In the immortal words of Bill and Ted: that was bodacious
However, I've just come to the realization that I am totally my mother's daughter. Mostly because my mom regularly has conversations with my voice mail. Observe:
"Laura? This is your mom. How are you? [short pause] I am fine. Do you miss me? [longer pause] I miss you too. Bye bye!"
I'm always confused as to whether I should call her back because technically
she just had a conversation with some facsimile of me. And frankly, my voicemail covers most of the pertinent details of a valid conversation—it's a hyper advanced voicemail that way. This is how robots take over the world: they start with voicemail.
So....what do you want to talk about now?
Lots of awesome incoming Holiday mail this week! I'm totally Grinch-y around this time of year, so all this Christmas mail makes my heart grow three sizes.
|A surprise package of goodies from Cheryl, my favourite person in all of Scotland|
|A card from Lisa, my pal in Denmark|
|The cutest card from Mary|
|Rudolph and Santa walk into a bar....it's a letter from Jennifer!!|
|More Mail from Mary (no Magic Mushrooms though). I absolutely love the robot sticker at the top.|
|Santa in a card from Miki|
|Snail mail (literally!) for Jessica|
|Up, up, up and away to Sukie!|
|Some immaculately dressed penguins for Nicole|
And that's it from me! Have a great week snail mailers!
Hello, you've reached the message mail of Laura's blog. I'm not here right now, so please leave me a message after the beep. BEEEEEEEEEPPPPPP!!!!
How sad that you didn't receive anything from me! When I send you something on Tuesday it's usually posted on your blog by Friday... But I sent you something on Tuesday and THERE'S NOTHING HERE! Mail is so slow in December... Booh!ReplyDelete
BOO. A week without mail from you is a sad one indeed.Delete
The gift from Cheryl is very cute\kawaii\pretty looking.ReplyDelete
I love your mail you get. Christmas is good mail day.
oh!! the letter from Cheryl it's so cute!! the owls are adorable!ReplyDelete
The owls are indeed adorable! I forgot to mention that the package also included dinosaur foamies, which are also adorable! :)Delete
Ohh, the postmark "Santa HoHoHo Père Noël" on Jennifer's letter is so fun! I wonder if we have special postmarks for Christmas in France. But well, I will never know, as I don't see my letters once they're marked :PReplyDelete
Wow, my observation skills are non-existent since I didn't even notice the postmark! Thanks for pointing it out Tari!Delete
I love all the Christmas mail you received.ReplyDelete
I also like the penguins in their red coat you sent, something different!
Thanks! I like penguins on a normal day, but when they're dressed up in red coats... well, that's just double special, isn't it? :)Delete
I imagine your mother must have a hard time imagining "What if she doesn't reply the way she's supposed to? All my recording will go wrong!".ReplyDelete
Lovely Christmas incoming. :D
Thanks Penny! You know, I never thought of it that way! She probably talks to my voicemail because my voicemail doesn't say smart-assed things back. Hee!Delete
Hahaha, I have the feeling that you inherited your coolness from your mom! ;PReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week, Laura! ;D
