Mostly Postcrossing draws this time, except for the poodle-y thing, which is for a swap-bot trade. The recipient is in Mechanicsville, Maryland, and said she likes cards with “cute little dogs.”

Oh, why, oh why, am I still tangling myself up in swap-bot?  Those nerves!  And you know what I did a couple of days ago?  I signed up for 4 or 5 more swaps!  Oof!  Let’s move on…

Tintin & Snowy ran off to Capelle aan den IJssel, Netherlands, to someone who has been Postcrossing for over 6 years!  He said he likes Tintin, so there we go.  As a kid, I used to receive a magazine that serialized translated Tintin, and though I think I found the art attractive enough, I think I barely read any of it at all.  These days, I see collections as I browse library shelves, but still–no, I haven’t caught up on the stuff.  Should I?

The California map card I sent to the Postcrosser I drew in Nettetal, Germany, arrived today.  He had said in his profile he likes map cards, I sent him one, and he tells me, “thank you for your cool map card it is new in my collection” — dang, the lack of punctuation & capitalization, I would have sworn he’s a product of AMERICAN schools!  His profile was actually a real chore.  It was two short lines about himself that were written well enough, but then he went on to 30 lines of expired cards!

What is the point?

Pekkle is traveling to a Postcrosser in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China.  She was interested in Hello Kitty, and he was the closest I had.  Well, I like the card.
