*badlilkitty* and I were chatting and realized we really like getting letters; not just emails but actual I-just-got-a-letter-dance something-in-the-postal-box letters. We figured others might like that too. so here's a thread to start the ball rolling.

If you'd like to receive letters, post here and people who want to send letters can send you an IM to get your address. If you feel uncomfortable giving out your address first, state it in your post and people can give you their address and the onus would be on you to write first.

Forever stamps for USians is, I think 49 cents right now, but they last, hey, forever and they're coming out with space-themed and Star Trek themed ones this year. International stamps (for usians sending out of country) are 1.15$. Non-usians, I'm very sorry but I don't know the workings of your postal system well enough to give prices.

If you post here, *please* follow through. If you don't like your handwriting, type it up and print it out. Please don't harass people and DO NOT share addresses.

If you have access to Daiso, they have fun stationery sets for 1.50$, and I recommend getting washi tape (same price) because the envelopes are not self sealing.

Thank you!

Back in the ancient past, the olden tymes, between Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, I used to receive & send letters with some people from here. Obviously, I hate them now and hope they never suck air again. However, I have become something of a postcard fan, and would be happy happy happy to send a postcard to anyone who PMs me their address. I'd be more than welcome to receiving post too!

Also, to whichever Canadian forum user who told me they had Katy Perry's underwear and I said 'lol send it to me' and they said 'lol yeah' and I said 'lol yeah': lol yeah, what you think I'm made of being able to imagine underwear?

Okay that was years ago, but still.

Anyway, write me, I'm not weird!

Bumping this to let people know that April is Letter Writing Month. Last year I wrote (and mailed!) a letter every day. I would love to do that again this year but to a new batch of victims, I mean penpals. If you'd like to get a rambling letter from a stircrazy hausfrau, please pm me your address.
