It's Sad...

I still have eight of these suckers left out of 20 from last Christmas, even after using them two at a time to mail letters (after the rate went up) on the rare occaision that I had no other means of communication. These stamps will probably hold out until it's time to buy my next batch of Christmas stamps. I feel like such a punk, putting 78 cents on a thank you card, but I'd spend at least that driving myself to the post office to get a set of "Liberty" stamps. Maybe next year I should buy Christmas stamps that are a bit more secular, seeing as how I always overestimate how many Christmas cards I can write. Or maybe I should get started now...where's my quill?

  2. I have your email address at the computer downstairs and I'm too lazy to go open it... I'd like to write to you to discuss buffalo. Eat this message after you receive it.

    (I'd like to be a secret agent...)

  3. I don't recall being asked to help you waste those stamps around the holidays. Hmph.

  4. I had custom stamps made from a .jpg for Christmas and I have leftovers too. The first ten Christmas cards are going to get double pictures of my Granny because I paid more than 39 cents for them, damnit.

    Tanya: my email is in my profile, but it's GREENPEARL42 at yahoo dot com.

    Grant MIller: Thank you.

    Dale: You're on my list this year, so you better not pout.

    GKL: You can tell everyone that it's because you love your Granny twice as much this year...

  6. You're a better secret agent than me, because I can't find your email in your profile.

    But I'm writing you an email right now, since you kindly left it for me in the comments...

  8. I still have a box of "humorous" xmas cards with a top ten list of complaints about Christmas in the Soviet Union.

  10. Flannery... I used one of those this week... and like you, I still have a couple left. It's sad how few Christmas cards I actually mailed out in 2006.

  11. Or you could just be like me and not send any cards at all. Saves a bundle on cards AND stamps. But then, I'm a curmudgeon.
