About Me

I am no longer participating on Swap-Bot. I will not be responding to messages via the site. I've grown tired of the behavior noted below and have decided to focus on sending via SendSomething.net, where I don't have to worry about such things.

My philosophy on swapping is we are all adults and as adults we know there are risks in all areas of life. If you swap, know there is a chance you won't get something in return. Sometimes it is because the other person is an idiot (the world is full of idiots). Most times it is because the other person has stuff that happens that takes precedence over sending a postcard or letter or some other bit of expected mail. If you don't get a swap, rate a 1 without comment and try, just try, to understand that sometimes life is difficult and some people are not as capable as you at handling life's difficulties. The "bad swapper" groups and blacklists I see ALL OVER this site are just another form of bullying. It is a shame people can't deal with disappointment and must take their inadequacies out on those who may be already hurting.

And on the subject of "bad swappers," please do not message me to tell me there is a "bad swapper" in my swap or group, or one that is thinking about joining my swap/group, or peeking in my window, or dating my boyfriend, or abducted by aliens and now back and out to destroy civilization by cheating people out of a bit of mail, or any other detail relating to gossip/hearsay read on the forum or in a blacklist group.

Comment: Thank you. I loved the packaging it arrived in. ;) I've never thought of sending in a ziplock bag. It made me smile. The envelopes are great, too, of course. Thanks for the address labels!

Comment: A colorful birdie envelope flew into my mailbox today. I really LOVE all the bird cards you sent (you gave me an extra one - how sweet)! Your flamingo note card was neat too, and I enjoyed reading your note. A bird feeder bird cam sounds neat, but yeah, probably a bit expensive. Have a wonderful day!!

Thought this might be a way to reach you, as you'll get an email from SB to let you know that there is a comment on your profile -- who could resist checking on THAT? lol - please be in touch ASAP -- a quick email is fine!

I have tried no less than 30 times to get past your word verification on your blog, but I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! And the audio didn't work either. So, here is my response to the Woody postcard I sent back to you:

Yay! I made the blog.

Rick Luger is a a live performance based on the radio shows of the 40s. There are 4 actors on stage, speaking into microphones, doing about 60 different characters all together. And they have cheesey site gages.

It's a great show. But yea, that Snappy's Crunch and Wheat "ad" was...well, it was hilarious. But also very telling of the time period. Which is sad. But...still, it was a funny joke. Still my favorite ad of the whole show even though it's been cut from the show because the writer decided it was a bit too off-putting.

PJ on Aug 25, 2011:

Thanks for another lovely card! Great stamps on the envie, too.

I'm glad you liked the bee, and I would love to see a photo of the finished product. Have fun altering it!

Onyx on Aug 24, 2011:

Thank you so much for sending me my note card back, and for using such a lovely pen!

Love the envelope seals! Terry (";)

PJ on Jul 26, 2011:

What a great surprise ...

Thank you for your note telling me about your love of bees. I am so glad that it took you a little while to write because it made for an extra special treat to come home and find your letter.

The card is beautiful too. I'm already a little interested in bees, after watching a show once about how awfully we treat bees now, trucking them around from place to place to fertilize different crops. The kind of stress and strain that must put on the colony seems ... unfair.

Thanks for furthering my interest in these fantastic little creatures!

kkrriiissyy on Jul 26, 2011:

Haha! When I read your post card I had the thought that I wish it was cold. This heat dome that was here was so not acceptable! I need to send Mother Nature a letter of complaint! :) I'll tell her to let up on the Pennsylvania area as well! ♥

Hey? Are you stalking me? I wouldn't mind... :-)))))

You changed the name of the self-portrait swap! How funny. I was even practicing face sketches at dinner tonight...
