the dirty little secret… oh I must share something awful, shameful, untoward…
While I bought each and every postcard in Anaheim, addressed them and dutifully wrote each note in my hotel room, I did not mail them from California.
My hotel, it seems, was woefully lacking stamps for sale. They could merely post them for me… Well that wasn’t good enough for little ol me. I wanted them to have a DL postmark but I couldn’t find stamps there either, lots and lots of mail boxes though… I guess I should have purchased stamps before I got on the plane.
So because of the stamp debacle I said “screw it, I’ll do it when I get home”
I think that is actually a quote. You see it was my 2nd to last day there, I was spending the day with a friend I hadn’t seen in 9 years, The Chadness, and we wanted to get to the park and get the fun underway. So I decided the Portland postmark would have to suffice. It will won’t it? I suppose you could all be hurt and angry an decide that my postcard is crap and tear it up the moment you eyes lay on it.
I hope you don’t.
I hope you carry it by its corner like the stinky diaper that it is and welcome it into your home.
A warning note though, a few of them are funny, a few of them are true, a couple are random, sentimental or downright lovey… So deal with it! I invite you though if you enjoyed your card to scan it in and put it up for all the world to see. Then let me know about it okay? If more than 3 of you do so I will put up a little area in my side column linking to my postcard people… Ohh, exclusive little group that you are.
On an only slightly unrelated note someone out there in the interlove is celebrating a birthday today and to her I say: Happy birthday babe. You’ve had some tough years and some really tough years… but you’ve had some great ones too, here is hoping that this year is greater than the greatest and the next is greater still.
Drop by and send her some birthday wishes won’t you?
And on a completely unrelated note I am now finished with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, feel free to email me.

Oh I know all about those pesky hotels that lack post card stamps. Our hotel in NYC was the same way. Portland postmark is fine!going over to visit BW now!
I am enjoying the post card you sent me in my mind. :) It is postmarked from disneyland. :)
Just so you know Disneyland stopped postmarking things at the park. They all just say Anaheim, so I think the Portland postmark would be more meaningful anyway!
Lori – That makes me feel oddly comforted. Thanks…
What?! The postmark isn’t going to say DL? I’ll just have to tear that little corner off…Kidding. Just kidding.You’ve done better than me because I’d have probably said screw it I’ll mail them when I get home and then I’d get home, unpack, and say screw it and toss them all in the trash because I’d be out of stamps at home and not want to get off my butt to go buy any. Because sometimes I am just that lazy.
Uh huh, I knew that. Do you want to know how I knew that? Because, I live in a burb of Phoenix and uh, I would have had it in my hot little hands……*whimper*
CK – I just sent you and email and got your vacation responder. I’m sorry. I cannot wait until Sunday. ;-)
anyone who has gotten vacation notice from me in e-mail since Saturday OOPS sorry, forgot to shut it off, Thanks Kami for letting me know, otherwise it would have been left on for 6 weeks or so… I’m fun that way.Flutter: It left yesterday, it should be there soon friend…
oh no.. losing strength.. can’t blog for weeks now.. must take break til i get postcard then i can return…. oh.. no… slipping away…
Can’t wait to get mine! No matter where it was postmarked from.
I got mine already! And, funny thing, I never even checked the PM! Ha!(Thanks for the postcard!)(But I don’t have a scanner.)(Will a picture do?)
Um, no. You get right back on a freaking plane, sing your little jet plane song, fly to Disneyland, and get me an official, Disneyland stamp, dangit! Oh the horrors! Won’t someone please think of the children?!
Syb: Suck my ass.Mel: Of course a picture works. Let me know when it is posted and I will get the postcard all linked up… LM: It should be there by the end of the weekend I hope… how long can the postal system possibly take? I hope.BW: what I said up there.
Hi SweetieHey your postcard could come from anywhere in the states and still be exciting to me as I don’t live there.Loved HP and the DH so will email when my head catches up from exploding blogs and holiday washing.
i see the sidebar link… so how many did you send if there are three links?
JO!!! You aren’t dead. what a relief. Angel: I think I sent 27 post cards. 23 of those people, I think, have blogs.
