For this swap you will send one something to your partner along with a little note. It's more complicated than that, of course, but that's the gist of it.

I'm sure anyone who has been swapping for a while will have gotten some extra that made them raise their eyebrows a little bit. We're going to take that to the next level.

You will send your partner one flat thing that you suspect they have probably never gotten in the mail before, or that should make them scratch their heads.
Examples include:
A particularly flat rock
A barbie dress
A packet of sugar from a restaurant
A (new) pantyliner
We're going for flat and odd here.

You should not send things like -tea, cocktail napkins, ugly stickers, colouring book pages, etc, as those are all fairly common things to get as extras. (Well, I've gotten multiple cocktail napkins anyways...)
You should also not send anything that is actually gross. So no sending a thin slice of raw potato as that will be nasty on arrival. A single potato chip, however, is welcome.
edit I would also avoid sauce packets as I imagine they have the potential to create a pretty gross mess.

Along with the weird item, please send a facetious note explaining why you thought your partner would appreciate the item.

Feel free to get as silly as possible.
This swap should not cost you more than 71 cents to send. It's perfectly alright if you send something that only takes one forever stamp to post. (:

So, one thing, with one note justifying said thing, to one partner.

Please do not post what you are sending in the comments! We do not want the weirdness ruined! Any comments stating what the person is sending will be removed!

To join this swap you must have a 4.96 rating or higher. If you have a one that is recent or could be made up, you will not be welcome in this swap. If you have any recent threes you will also not be welcome in this swap. If you believe you have an extraordinary circumstance regarding a recent three or one, it is your job to message me as soon as you sign up for this swap with an explanation so we can talk about it. If I don't have a message from you, I will drop you.

You need to have at least 5 completed and rated type 2 (or type 3) swaps under your belt to join.

I will angel if necessary as long as you have rated your partner a one. But let’s not flake, okay? I will drop anyone I feel is sketchy or unfit for the swap.

This swap is USA only. Due to postage and the ridiculous nature of this swap, I will not be hosting an international version. If you are a reliable swapper and would like to host an international version please give me a heads up first and be sure to credit my brilliance. (:

I love this! Watching but will be joining closer to the sign up date!

oblivionspin 01/27/2015 #

I would hope so! Heh, I don't want to have to mail myself panty liners and barbie dresses for my own amusement :P

oblivionspin 01/27/2015 #

Note to self: edit swap description to officially advise against sending sauce packets.

This is a perfect idea for a swap. :D

PookiePie1307 01/28/2015 #

Damn, the sauce packet was already wrapped up ready to go.

oblivionspin 01/29/2015 #

Gosh sauce packets seem like a good idea but I imagine them going through a mail sorting matching and just oozing all over everything. I don't hate postal workers :P

PookiePie1307 01/29/2015 #

What if I put it in a tape sealed baggie? Or an empty sauce packet? Bwahaha

PookiePie1307 01/29/2015 #

I tried flattening a gummi bear for this. It won't stay flat. I'm quite disappointed!

oblivionspin 01/29/2015 #

Ew. The possibilities are really endless. As long as it's not actually nasty... Go wild.

AZmom875 01/29/2015 #

I want to be weird too. hmmmmm what can I send?

AZmom875 01/30/2015 #

I thought of something!

KrackerJaxx 01/30/2015 #

how funny is this!?

oblivionspin 01/31/2015 #

Augh! I just realized I have at least three different equally odd ideas. I hope this swap goes well enough to host it again before too long!

techgrlkay 02/ 1/2015 #

I am almost tempted but scared to even think about what people might send. Yikes.

oblivionspin 02/ 2/2015 #

Just an f.y.i. I will be going over profiles and assigning partners tomorrow morning, as I intend to be sleeping at midnight, just this once.

Oh man, I just noticed this swap and I am sad that I've missed it! If you host again I would certainly join!

myshoesdontmatch 02/ 5/2015 #

everyone should post here after they receive their mail what odd thing they received! I had this on my watch list and forgot to join, darn!

oblivionspin 02/ 8/2015 #

If everything seems to go smoothly on this swap, this is definitely one I'd like to do as a reoccurring thing. Testing the waters and getting some swapper feedback on how this goes before posting a new one though, I'll give you two @erinbit @myshoesdontmatch a heads up next round (:
