What are you, some kind of Astronaut? No, I'm some kind of bubble girl.

This is going to be a very short and sweet mail post because I'm sick with some dreaded cold. That'll teach me to fight crime without keeping sanitizer in my spandex (that sentence reads much odder than I intended it to be and I can't figure out how to make it less weird).

(when I do get sick and I'm feeling crappy, I often think about what it would be like to be a Bubble Girl. Yeah, it looks weird and you can't fit through most doors, but you're living in a hermetically sealed, germ-free bubble. Hermetically sealed! HOW AWESOME IS THAT? You'd have to be craaazzy not to enjoy that)


Faster than a speeding bullet, it's a postcard from the LEP-themed swap on Swap-bot

Valentines from Mary, who has so much love to share

LEP incoming from Julie. I'll admit, it's a bit strange to get a postcard featuring yourself. It's like looking into a mirror...oooohhh....

Sage advice from Super Sushi. For those of you who wonder how we balance all the work for LEP—this is the motto we live by.

An envelope of awesome from Mary, who is easily the best Mary I have ever known.


Outgoing for Katri

Homebaked goodness for Jona (well, I say "homebaked," but its more likely that I bought it from the store, put it on a plate and said I baked it...)

All of the joy of traveling, but none of the layovers for Marissa

A giant peacock for my LEP swap partner, whoever (whomever?) that person may be...

I hope everyone else had a great week, and that you have an even better weekend. Later gators!


  1. I am honored to be your favorite Mary!!

  2. I want that germ-free bubble to live in, especially during the winter. We have a season long norovirus epidemic going on here ever winter and just UGH. Gimme the bubble!
    I hope you feel better soon :)

  3. Really amazing good fun sweet letters.

  4. Um...when I first read the title, I thought it said "Barbie Girl" and I was very confused.
    I imagine living in a bubble would smell stale breath OR maybe like campho phenique. And what if you had too many beans? Would your gas just keep getting repumped into your bubble?? Talk about one heck of a Silent But Deadly!!!
    I guess living out the the country in the middle of nowhere is, in it's own way, a sort of germ-free bubble...just more dusty.
