Snail Mail August 16, 2010

Posted by jeneypeney in bloggers do it best, giveaways, life, shenanigans.

A huge part of my job includes budgeting for, ordering, receiving, inventorying*, and issuing thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of shoes, cleats, shorts, jerseys, backpacks, and other such nonsense to mostly completely ungrateful athletes.

I can depend on at least a couple packages to come through my building everyday throughout the month of July with my name on it… but nothing in the boxes belongs to me. Cue sad face.

I mean, who doesn’t love getting packages, letters, cards, postcards, and the like in their mailbox? Snail mail is like a parfait… have you ever asked anyone, “Hey, you like parfaits?” and they said, “Hell no! I don’t like no parfaits!”**

Didn’t think so.

One of my favorite bloggers, Lemon Drop, did a neat little package giveaway a few weeks back and I’m stealing it. Because I roll like that.

So take a gander at the questions below and and answer them either by e-mail (jeney [dot] anderson [at] gmail [dot] com) or comment on this post. You can send a carrier pigeon if you want, but I don’t think my landlord would appreciate the poop.

I will chose three lovely winners who will receive a package from yours truly in the mail with awesomely awesome fun stuff!

You have until September 1st! Aaaaaand go!
