Posts Cards From The Edge

The edge of my department that is. Well, not the very edge. If you were to push over that faux wall there you'd be in another department that does who knows what but gets the sweet ass view of the north shore mountains. Bastards. Whatever, I can stand up and see them. But my lack of a view is not what this is about, what it's about is the great empty space on my left.


Bare right? I have  a few pics on the right hand side, but the left is barren except for a couple pictures of the kids and a duck that Liam made for me. So the other day when I was making my hourly pilgrimage to the Keurig machine I noticed that one of my coworkers had a couple of postcards up and since everything is a competition I thought, hey, I know a lot of people from places that aren't here and wouldn't that be cool if I could show off decorate my lonely workspace with postcards from them? Would you like a postcard from Vancouver? Send me one from where ever you are and I'll send you one back. Cool, right? It will be like friending each other on FB but with a more personal touch. And it will cost us a stamp. Can you put a price on friendship though? Ok, I guess it will also be the cost of a postcard too. Forget that last question. Anyway, if you're interested, let me know in the comments and I'll email you back if you're set up for that and we can exchange addresses. If you're comments are not linked to your email, my email address is... wait, I have to go look at the preview... ok, it's on the bottom right hand side of the page. Help me to look cooler than my work mates and I'll send you a pretty picture for your fridge.

PS. It's very dark in the picture because it was at the beginning of a 5am to 1pm shift and since I was alone I figured it would be the best time to take a picture since I'm not really sure if I'm allowed to or not.

PPS. Yes, that's still a picture of my kids and Santa on my desktop, what of it?

PPPS. I just noticed that box under my desk and I have no idea what it is.

  7. I don't know if my hometown even has their own postcards. (The town I live in is called Soddy Daisy, after all. Not much of a tourist destination.)

    Hmmm... now I'm curious to find out.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ok, now I can't stop thinking what a postcard from my hometown would look like... what images would it have?

    Maybe the cooling towers of the nuclear plant? Or perhaps the Daisy Feed & Seed?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes please! I'm in. And I already have your p-card picked out.

  10. You got Santa to pose for a pic? Awesome.

    I already have your address. I'll send a postcard when I feel like it. This could take a few years. Sending me naked bunny pics could hurry the process along.

    ReplyDelete
  11. HA! Go find out what's in that box.

    you wanna postcard from Portland? It's not that exotic, I know...

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm on it. Because Germany and Virginia might be nice, but nothing says "Exotic" like Cleveland, Ohio.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sign me up too, although now it looks like you'll have two from Cleveland. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm in MO, do you want one from MO? Its like exotic and stuff here...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am SO in! I assume the postcard needs to be, um, relatively G-rated since it's going up in your cube, right? ;)
    PS- I have your email addy.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Okay, I'll send you one from Maine for your wall.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I could send you one from Redneck Central, if you like...but it may take a day or three to get it out since I'm sort of supposed to be birthing a baby sometime between now and Tuesday...

    Shade and Sweetwater,

  18. I'm in Northern California, happy to participate!

  19. I'm in! Send me your addy and I'll send you some St. Louis for your blank canvas.

  20. Oooh, a mystery box under the desk...sounds intriguing.

    I'd love to add a postcard to the mix!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'll send you a damn postcard. But then you'll have to explain to all of your coworkers why everyone calls you "The Captain". Gimme your address. Now.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Will happily send greetings from Central New York!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I cans end you some from beautiful downtown Pottstown, PA and maybe even a few from the surrounding area!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well you know I am not sending you a card from Coquitlam -- doubt if that even exists. I had the coolest board in my old office full of postcards when the instructors were travelling - I think we lost it in the flood. Now I am collecting magnets and putting them on my filing cabinet.

    Great idea can hardly wait to see the progress pictures of the re-decoration.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You know you want a postcard from smack in the middle of the US! And flat...you guessed it Kansas! Plus I love getting mail!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Maybe we could meet halfway and do a public exchange.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Uh...you really want one from Saskatchewan? Sure, I guesss?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, hell, Cap'n, I feel like I HAVE to! I'm in!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Email me... East Coast of New England :) jmlcoppola@comcast.net

  30. Don't look in the box. It never ends well, those mystery containers under the desk. I still shudder...that box, my new desk...the bones...


    Hey, mon, I'd dig that! I'll need a reminder, though, so don't forget to email me. Word!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I got DC covered for ya. Just email me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Vegas, baby! (Although that exclamation point is a little deceiving seeing as how I loathe this place with my very soul.) Anyway, I'm in.

    jibssa@gmail.com

    P.S. I'm also a world-class procrastinator so it's probably best if you expect mine to show up last.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm in BUT... like Shannon, not sure if our little town has its own cards so I'll pick up something cool from a nearby area of eastern NC. Send me your email Captain!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm in for that. I can send one from DC, maybe from Baltimore or Annapolis too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. have fun..
    Glad to see you around after one year of off and on...

    Thanks for the visit to my blog.
    cheers.
    you rock.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Do you want one that says "Los Angeles" or would it impress your co-workers more if it said "Hollywood". I can fix you up with either. Or both.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Look at all the love here- you are going to be inundated with post cards. Pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'll send you a lovely postcard from Maine if you need one! My email address is on my profile.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cool Beans! I'm in! My email address is on my profile page. The hubs is working in Alaska for the next few months, so we'll send you one from Texas and Alaska! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love it. Send me an e-mail (you should be able to reply to this comment). If not - my e-mail is on my site. Do you want a postcard from VA where I now live or from DC where I grew up? I'm not sure where I'd even get a VA post card... Must investigate...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Texas...REPRESENT! I will be more than happy to get you the cheesiest post card I can find. Send me the addy and I'm on it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Texas. You know you want one from here, my friend!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have thousands of photos.

    Trust me, you don't want me to delve into that box.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You're going to have more postcards than you can display! I'll happily send you one from Utah, and you don't even have to do a THING in return. I got this one...

    ReplyDelete
  45. PS: What size t-shirt do you wear? Seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  46. ohh man! I used collect post cards and have been carting a lot of them along with others my mom had bought me...I'm in! Hit me up with the address and I'll start picking out post cards now!!

    ReplyDelete

  50. Cool idea! Looks like you've already got Southern California covered, but if you want another, let me know.

  51. Cool... I'm in! Email me and we can exchange addresses and postcards. What fun!! :)

  52. Nothing says cool like a nice phallic postcard of the Eiffel Tower! We're Paris cool baby....en roule comme ca! ;) I'm in.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I don't see anyone from Chicago to represent! :) Count me in. dmwrightbooks@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  54. Sure will. (allow time for procrastination please....it happens without me knowing I'm procrastinating)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would be happy to help decorate (aka help you win)! Do you like Lighthouses, beaches, seals and/or boats?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Do I need to send you another zombie? :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Wow, this is going to get really expensive for you. But worth it, yeah. Hey you know you could probably get enough $$ for an iPad if you could get all of your followers to tape a dollar bill to the post card.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh, I like this idea. I have a glass vase on the fireplace mantel and I've been thinking of putting all my postcards (my one vice on vacation, I always buy them and never actually send them) in it.

    So, I'll send you a postcard. I don't think I still have your address though. Marking it Deliver to Captain Dumbass in Canada probably won't work will it?

    Hmmm...

    ReplyDelete
  59. Dude - Hit me up!
    Denver's not that glamorous, but I'm getting on a plane to somewhere even less glamorous next week and then somewhere you can't drink the water the next week!
    Good timing!

  60. I told my husband that I'm going to send a blog to Vancouver. He said "It's a blog thing?" I said "Yep, for his wall in his cubicle" He said "You bloggers have a weird thing." Hehe. So I'll send one out from Bonny Kalamazoo. Honestly though, we aren't that Bonny, especially at the end of January. It IS Michigan after all. Don't worry though, the postcards that are from here show green grass and parks and nice summery things like that.

  61. I meant send a postcard. Oops. Sorry, distracted typing (can't ever imagine why with all the kids running around here all the time).
