Snail mail, anyone?

As some of you may already have noticed (special Guam prize to murphy for being the first to spread the word, albeit under dubious circumstances), my snail mail address is now featured on my blog. Over there. No, to the right side. See it?

Why is it there? Couple of reasons.

1. I want to get back to writing letters and notes. Real letters and notes. Not e-mail. Not IMs. Cards, notes and personal, hand-written letters. In order to do that, I need people to write to. So I'm offering my address first so you won't have to feel shy about giving out your address. It is convenient that my maling address is a P.O. Box, but that's been my family's mailing address for decades. Guam is just NOW getting home mail delivery to some places; others won't get it for a while, so many people here have had and will continue to have P.O. boxes.

2. Christmas is coming up. I love sending and receiving Christmas cards. If you're so inclined, send one. I guarantee you'll get one in return. With an actual Guam postmark. From freakin' Jingle George! C'mon ... how can you beat that offer??

3. This could be a new blog feature. I've send flip-flop earrings to Canada. They went out today. Soon a Guam refrigerator magnet will be on the way to California. If you want to send me some trivial trinket, you have my address. As long as it's not too freaky (yes, naughty one, I'm thinking of you), If and when I get something, I will take a pic and post it on my blog. Maybe it's one of those truck-stop spoons, or a shot glass, or a fridge magnet of your state/nearby national park/monument/oddity, whatever. Hell, maybe it's your panties from Vegas (again, naughty one, of course it's you ... it's always been you ;) ...). Feel free; it's your postage, after all.

So that's why it's there. Use it if you want. :)

murphy said...

Everything Nice said...

I'm sending a piece of our crumbling sea wall. I figure you would enjoy a pre-token of our ultimate demise.

or- I'll send you handcuffs.

still undecided.

I'm diggin' i', right?

Lindsey said...

I'm with you...I've always felt a 'handwritten' note was much more meaningful than e-mail or a typed letter. I still love getting cards in the mail.

DZER said...

sass: not if it's properly sealed in a container LOL

murph: if ya say so ...

everything nice: let's keep things personal ... but really, who am I kidding? I'll take anything you send ... and like it ;)

friends of mcdougal: sure are!

linny: I'm with you there ... and, therefore, hoping to hear from you ;)

dzer: i love letters... i need to send more of them.

DZER said...

sass: same here. I used to be SOOOO good at sending letters. I think this will be my pre-New Year's resolution.

I’m horrible at sending Christmas Cards! I write them all out, put the addresses on them, and sometimes even stamps. For some unexplainable reason they still don’t make it in my mail box. There really is something wrong with me! LOL!

DZER said...

lilith: I think we've established that you have major issues darlin' ... LOL
