This is funny!

I am probably the person who enjoys keeping in touch via postcards because...
1. I travel and can't always email wherever I am
2. I love getting postcards and I always think my friends appreciate a card from a friend besides getting their usual bills
3. It's fun to update them on what's going on.
4. I love hearing from them when they receive my postcards =)

So yes i love postcards, letters, packages, and magazines

Personal letters, of course! I lived in Ottawa for two years, where I was pretty lonely, and the long letters from Toronto were one of the things that helped me get through it. Delicious thick packages... It's kind of sad that people don't really use "snail mail" that much anymore. My favourite letter ever though would have to have been a more recent one that was packed with little random bits... I not only got the expected letter, but also a purple hair elastic, pieces of candy and a Kleenex to block out my sister. Wonderful!

I love to get mail! Anything works as long as it isn't junk mail (or stuff from colleges that I've been getting since the PSATs --I call it my fan mail ). Letters are my favorites, especially long ones.

I save all of my personal letters and cards. I love to look through them later. Letters are especially important on my mom's side of the family, and my aunt just compiled a huuuge book for my grandfather of all of the letters he's sent her throughout the years. It's beautiful! So many memories and funny tidbits...

tangent
Weirdest mail-related occurrence that comes to mind: When I was younger, I went to this one camp for two sessions in a row, and my friend from the first session promised to write me a letter. When I got it, the envelope was in a plastic mail service bag that said something like 'we're sorry, your mail has been damaged in transit' and the envelope was kind of beaten up. There were several lumps inside that turned out to be a couple of pieces of candy (something like a tootsie roll and...whatever), but she said something like 'enjoy the candy necklace' (she was very specific about the contents, but with no tootsie roll references). The flap on the envelope did look altered...I remember wondering why they had opened my letter (bomb check? ) and what had happened. "Phew, no bomb--hey, a candy necklace!" "Let's replace it with these nasty tootsie rolls. She'll never know." Looking back, they probably thought it contained some type of drug, but never mind. Needless to say, I never ate the candy.

I enjoy receiving invites, packages and magazines and cards on holidays..but

the best mail would be

cards/letters that are written for no ocassion, just because you came into mind. They thought of you and just wanted to write you a letter...I think those light up my whole week when I get those...

ALso cards from mom...those are always great.

Let's see:

long, newsy letters (those are rare these days, which makes them even more valuable!)

postcards (especially witty ones from my best friend)

thank you notes (also very rare these days)

invitations (especially the ones with a diplomatic seal )
