    For Me?!

    I just love that feeling I get when I have un-opened mail.. It's like a gift... I can't explain the feeling.. it's just  pure joy and curiosity and excitement all mixed in... Even e-mails and comments and anything personal from someone to me...

    I like the exitment of opening my mail to see who it's from and what it's about.

    Penpals

    I love getting mail so I try to look on the bright side of friends moving away to make them into my penpals! I have really awesome stationery - some with cupcakes, some with goldfish, some with cartoon squid. I also just bought 70's catalogue men postcards (hilarious hair and...

    Some Letters I Will Never Throw Away...

    Even though we have hit the age of the internet and e-mail and online chat, I still love looking in the mail box and seeing a letter or card for me - not a sales ad, not a credit card offer, not a political mailer and definitely not a bill - but something address in HANDWRITING...

    Snail Mail

    I love getting mail just as much as I love to send it. Snail Mail, E-Mail, it doesn't matter. And packages are a real treat... even if they are work related it's fun to open them up and see what's in it. Oh if I post my PO Box will you all comply? LOL... I'm crazy but not THAT...

    Don't Get Me Wrong...

    E-mail is all fair and good, but there's just some magic in getting a letter through the post. It's got it's own personal touch to it. It seems more sentimental. Unfortunately, I don't get many letters now, but I still have the letters my friends have sent me in the past, and...

    Its Exciting

    I love getting mail though I don't get any except for on my birthday. There's something about the thought.. Some one remembering or thinking about you and taking the time out of their day to write a letter for you, the feeling's great. It simply makes me feel grateful and nice.

    Noise

    There was a time there was no mail it was the time the phone did not ring. My wife loved it and I was jealous for her loving it. Then, for reasons unknown, I changed and started to love silence and soon I started to need it. I don't remember about the mail. Nowadays I'm...

    Not All Mail

    But forget the junkmail and the bills they come regularly and are unappreciated. Quite rightly they are unopened and left!

    Mail Is Asexual. Male Is Specific.

    The fact that we still consider ourselves Male or Female means we haven't gotten to the YouMe way of describing ourselves. Females are not Males with an Fe in front of the word. She is not a He with an S in front of it. We have no way of allowing ourselves to be us until we can...

    That's Why I Keep Checking The Mailbox

    From the moment I saw my name on the envelope, I would be so excited to see who the sender is, and quickly open the letter. Definitely it is sweeter to receive a real paper and handwriting rather than email.

    I Learned to Love E-mail

    Something

    There is still sometime good about getting a real item in your hands rather than a bunch of redirected electrons. That's also why I like CDs more than MP3s.

    I used to have a lot of pen pals

    when I was younger...now I have none. Part of that is my fault...I think I just too lazy.:( It sucks not getting any "real" mail anymore. Does anyone still actually WRITE and MAIL letters anymore? I feel it's a lost art.
