Coin project!

Sorry for the double posting, but I wanted to update this for those following along.

I just got a piece of mail from Antarctica, the science outpost. It's a coin that, according to the person that sent it [30toseoul], "only people who work here get" and the letter was the very last piece of mail to leave the continent as they're shutting down for winter...until OCTOBER. Dude.

SO COOL. Pictures etc. to follow tomorrow. ALL SEVEN CONTINENTS REPRESENTED NOW!!

I bet your son is just as ecstatic.

That is *amazing*!

That is amazing. The power of the internet is unbeatable!
Feb. 22nd, 2010 10:49 pm (UTC)
That is AWESOME!

Yay, it got to you! :-) I handed it to Liza just before the last plane took off, but I wasn't sure when she would be able to actually put it in a mailbox. Very glad it arrived safely.

Oh, you fabulous woman, you!!! I'm about to pick him up from school and show him the letter. I wonder how long it will take for him to digest the return mailing address...

I can't thank you enough! And you'll have a handwritten card in... October? HEE. Thanks again, you just can't know what this will mean.

You are so very welcome! I'm thrilled that I could help out. Especially that our mutual friend put us in touch when she did, because otherwise it would've been a long time before I had the ability to send mail again! *g* (And if I didn't say it before -- no reimbursement necessary, it only cost me a tiny bit of postage and it gives me happiness to know that I could help.)

Oh, I hadn't linked to you because I didn't know if you would prefer that kept mum, but truly: all praise to your awesomeness! (And to Liza, as well!)
Feb. 22nd, 2010 10:59 pm (UTC)
*nods* Absolutely, I understood -- that's why I left a comment so you would know it was okay to link. :-)

*hugs!!* I just showed him the envelope and took pictures - I'll post them tomorrow. Oh man, he about jumped out of his skin, he was so excited! (And he sat in the car the whole way home, holding it and reading it over and over, hahahaha!)

And if you're sure about not needing to be reimbursed, then you just earned even more karma points. :)

How *very* cool! And yes, we want a blow-by-blow reaction post. :)
Feb. 22nd, 2010 11:20 pm (UTC)
WOO HOO! That's awesome.

it's been so much fun to follow this 'project' (and contribute to it). It reaffirms MY feelings that people will be nice, and generous, if given a proper chance.

Like everyone else, I want to see pics!
Feb. 23rd, 2010 12:49 am (UTC)
Wow, that is really cool! This birthday present keeps getting better.
Feb. 23rd, 2010 01:25 am (UTC)
That is so cool! How's he going with opening all the envelopes?
Feb. 23rd, 2010 02:43 am (UTC)

I'm jealous now.
Feb. 23rd, 2010 04:00 am (UTC)
Now that's beyond awesome.

Your son must be in seventh heaven. Btw, I want to apologize.... I have thought about getting a bag o' coins together for him, but I keep forgetting it. And I don't have your adress yet. :-P Can you send it to my email?: ksena77 at gmail dot com. Or maybe you already have swedish coins? If so, you don't need mine. :-)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
