Oh what, like the DOZENS of letters I get from credit card companies to sign up for credit cards? :B

Naw, I'm mostly worried about the prince of Nigeria showing up at my doorstep with a dozen roses for an impromptu blind date... (that he wants me to pay for of course)

Their their privacy policy.

The thought of Nigerian princes makes me shudder. There was a guy at my jr. college who was apparently a prince in his Nigerian tribe, and he would follow me around and beg me to become his 10th wife or somesuch. Even the direct approach of, "Okay, so you have a nice car, nice clothes, pretty bling, etc... but would just fuck off?" wasn't enough to get rid of him. Apparently he was heartbroken when I had to involve campus security to get him to leave me alone but sheesh, dude gave me the heebie jeebies!!

I got a postcard from NY!! I have four logged as received by the sender and 5 traveling, so I'm hoping I'll get some nice surprises in the mail soon! Here's my map!

Edit: I just got a note that one of my postcards got favorited! Cool! I had some made that have pictures I took around where I live.

Got my first "official" card ^^ From a couple in Germany. It has taught me that there is Kentucky Fried Chicken in Germany. I am a better person for knowing this, surely.

Meanwhile my letter to a 16 year old in China (requested) seems to have gone over ~really~ well. She loves anime/manga and was delighted to meet a cosplayer.

She's open for direct swaps here ^^/ I'm sure she'd love to swap with other geeks.

I got my 2nd official card today, from Great Britain!
Too funny on the KFC, did they say something about it or was it a KFC card?

I got my 3rd postcard today! From the Netherlands! So I have 3 postcards received by me, 5 postcards I sent out that are received by others, and 5 in the air! This is fun! Anyone else sending/getting any?

Getting quite a few direct swap requests... but I seem to have lost a postcard in the shuffle both ways

One I sent has never been registered and one sent to me hasn't arrived (or been sent). Doesn't really bode well for me *sweat*

I still need to find postcards. I've checked a couple of places that used to carry them but not anymore.

On a more upbeat note, I did get two really cool postcards!

This one and this one.

I found my postcards at a stationary store... though I've also made a handful that I worry are good enough to send or not :/ Apparently most people dislike handmade and ad/free cards.

I got another one, from Alabama, with fried green tomatoes on the front and a recipe for them on the back. I'm up to 6 sent postcards logged, 4 received, and 5 in the air. Some of the ones still in the air are from the first batch I sent; I wonder if I have some that will age out rather than getting logged.

I was kind of taken aback at how picky the descriptions of what some people wanted were; I think maybe they don't realize that not everyone has access to unlimited postcards. I figure they can like it or lump it.

I got another postcard today, from Belarus! It has this gorgeous sunset scene of a castle and landscape. 4 logged, 5 received. 5 in the air; some have been en route for 19 days now.
