Geeez! I am away for one month. ONE month. And it's within this one month that these two events occur.
okay okay okay yes that's a lot of hot air from me, since I know I'd have serious uncertainties about coming out from behind this blog and actually MEETING people [I don't do well in "live" situations in general, with strangers even worse!! and I do want to keep some sort of anonymity/facelessness here...], but you know what, having the OPTION of attending taken away is why I'm being ornery :p
... but here's some good news to come out of this tragedy: Any readers want to receive a postcard from Malaysia and/or Switzerland? Yes, a physical snail-mail postcard with exotic foreign stamps and an impersonal message for all postcarriers to read and laugh at before stuffing it into your inbox. Anyone? Hurry, before I change my mind!
Here are the rules / conditions:
- Email me [azlynne1972 at gmail dot com] your name & postal address. Do NOT leave the information in the comments for the whole WWW to see and abuse! By all means leave me a comment saying you've emailed me, that would be fine :-)
- Email subject line needs to contain "POSTCARD REQUEST"
- Please specify if you want a postcard from Malaysia, or Switzerland, or both.
- "closing date": Requests should be received by
8th August 200719th August 2007 [yes, that's in a month's time! I may extend this if the load isn't too bad...]
- I will endeavor to fulfill all requests by 27th August 2007.
- I pledge that I will not abuse the information provided: your name and address will be used only for the purposes of this postcard effort - no record will be kept, and the email will be deleted by 31st August 2007.
- NOTE: if this effort gets too tiring or expensive, I will give priority to whose who requested only one postcard. Also, I reserve the right to desert this effort if I feel like it: if that happens, I'll email ya an apology from Switzerland/Malaysia instead of the postcard, k?
- What I ask in return: Once you receive your postcard, please devote a line or two on your blog to it/me, with a link to http://azlynne1972.blogspot.com/ . If you get two postcards, you link to me in two separate posts. Sound fair?
Allllll righty then! Let's get those requests rolling in!
