My Box

So, I have this box. It's my special box. It's red with green Christmas trees all over it. I got it once with a Christmas present in it, and since it's a nice sturdy box, I kept it. At one point in it's life, it held candle (I used to have quite the collection going) I can tell because it still smells like them, but at this point in time, it holds mostly things I don't want to lose and my mail.

Every piece of mail anyone, past or present, on my flist has sent me is in that box. There's quite a lot by this time :). Anyways, I also keep some of my mail supplies, like extra post cards and envelopes there as well. While searching through that box, I found the following:

-48 letters or cards from fandom people.
-27 letters or cards from family.
-1 letter from the former Guelph MP (in response to my letter to her saying I support gay marriages from back in 2004 or 2005 when they were talking of getting rid of them)
-1 condolence card from my vet on the death of Tigger (it was quite sweet of them, even if it made me cry).
-1 post card *I* sent to my parents (why it ended up back in my room I don't know...).
-1 returned to sender card I sent to anoel
-1 returned to sender card I sent to mercury973 (these two came back to me one after another, which caused me to throw up my hands in despair and give up on the US postal service. I kind of stopped sending mail after that :S)
-380 Yuan. You know, in case I ever go back to China and need some money....
-1 post card written and stamped but never sent for my sister.
-1 post card written and stamped but never sent for the_muppet (umm, I'm just going to mail this off now, please ignore the fact that it is a few months old :S)
-1 half written card to sunshineandrage (do you still want this? I don't even think I have your current address...).
-1 half written card to somedayvet (I know the address I have for you has changed, do you still want this?).
-A lot of turtle stickers from when I was sending letters for the SBC campaign.

So yes, apparently my mail has issues getting to people, and not all of it can be blamed on the USPS.

OK, so I went looking through all this stuff because I'm about to send off my Christmas cards.

People who've asked for mail from me so far:
argosy, hermioneorourke, kaaatie, lemonpiefirefly, munchkinofdoom, and ubiquitous_girl

People who will get cards without asking:
equusentric, maekala and itsjustkristen

People who's address I already have, but whom haven't asked for one yet (would you like one? Again, I'm not just sending Christmas cards here and there's no pressure to send anything back):
aurora_84, laii, mercury973, tasha_neko and terribilita

And if there's anyone else who's interested, you can still ask (although, I'm running out of Christmas cards and time to go buy more, so it might be a post card or something instead)! I'm too lazy to dig up my links to the posts I made to leave addresses, so feel free to email me your address instead: parakaproductions at gmail dot com
