I'm taking over this swap from arianneroxa. This was a wonderful swap idea, and I'm bringing it back to life!

One of my favourite things about receiving postcards is hearing something about the sender!

Here's the idea: for each swap, I will provide a writing prompt or idea, which you will consider when sending your postcard to your swap partner. This prompt might bring up a memory, a feeling or even a conversation that you overheard today in the grocery store. You're free to write as much or as little as you like, as long as it in some way relates to the prompt. 1 postcard to 1 partner! This swap will be USA only, but I'd be happy to make an international one if there is enough interest.

This months prompt: Describe one human behaviour that really gets on your nerves. Maybe it's something related to obnoxious drivers (perhaps people who are too lazy to use turn signals?), weird chewing/ eating habits, lazy grammar (text speak, anyone?), strange personal grooming habits (I used to regularly run into a woman in the gym changing room who would clip her toenails with wild abandon in the common dressing area) or even something that people do on social media sites (such as passive-aggressive Facebook status updates or the chronic 'oversharer') -- it can really be anything! Have fun describing it, and try to make this annoyance into something goofy or funny. :)

Postcards should be chosen with consideration towards the receivers preferences; whether you send your cards naked (without an envelope) or in an envelope is completely up to the sender.

I will be checking participants profiles and ratings thoroughly before assigning partners. Any recent 1s or 3s will be looked into. If I feel like you might flake on my swap, you will not be allowed to join. Newbies are welcome on a fairly selective basis. Please have a well filled out profile (with a nice listing of your likes as well as a self introduction).

I do angel all of my swaps, although I will make every possible effort to ensure that my swaps remain flaker-free.
