My Postcrossing Profile
Updated February 4, 2020
Because my Swap-bot profile is public, visible to everyone on the internet, I'm deleting most everything. It's a bit like latching the barn door after the horse is gone, but friends who are security experts tell me every little bit helps.
I'll leave a little information for swaps and wishes. Send me a pm if you want to know more about my preferences. If you're a member of Postcrossing, you can see my Postcrossing profile for more information.
I had a nice conversation with our local post office person today, February 4th. I had a letter with three postcards in it. We talked about what it means when a letter is rigid and needs an extra Additional Ounce postage stamp.
An envelope that's flexible can travel through a scanning device accurately. A rigid one doesn't and its routing code might be incorrect.
The scanning device is the size of two soda cans placed about a half-inch apart. Letters travel in an S-shaped curve around the two cans. If your letter or large letter can't gracefully travel through that path, then its Content is Rigid.
I swap for blank postcards in envelopes. I send the postcards I receive to family and friends and people on Postcrossing. I don't mind gently bent corners; I lop them off with a corner rounder.
No thank you: Postcards to color, postcards for Christian holidays and legends, and Zazzle postcards won't get hearts from me. Most others will. I have many Pomegranate postcards because I buy their remaindered postcard books at Half Price Books for $3.
My favorite kawaii has a face. I love food with faces and anchovies with legs and animals in an unlikely milieu like cat servers at Starbucks.
I enjoy most characters, especially San-X. My favorite characters at the moment are Corocoro Coronya, gudetama lazy (or depressed or fatigued?) egg yolk, Kogepan Burnt Bread, Sentimental Circus and Sumikko Gurashi.
I'm looking for kawaii books with faces. And puffins. How could all the kawaii artists have never thought to draw puffins?
I throw away too much plastic. This is a list of plastic that I receive in swaps and would like to avoid. And perhaps this list of preferences will add another tick mark in the online statistics of people who want to change the world.
