Cool Stuff In The Mail

First off, sorry I've been neglecting my blog buddies. Things have been busy, busy, busy for me lately and it's been a long time since I even posted here. Nothing exciting has been going on though - except for the cool stuff that I got in the mail. Kleopatra sent me a fun package. It was wrapped up super funky with stickers with this one being my favorite. (click any of the pictures to enlarge)












Anyone who is a Brady Bunch fan will know what this is all about.















Where else but in United States could you get cool postage stamps with super heroes and baseball legends on them? Awesome!

















Look at the books and other assorted goodies that were inside my package! Note the Brady Bunch book. Kleo & I have seen all of the episodes numerous time and the movies thankyouverymuch. My favorite episode(s) was the family trip to Hawaii. It was continued over a few weeks and included such cliff hangers as Greg getting hit with his surfboard, going under the water & not coming back up, the giant hairy spider on Peter while he's sleeping and, of course, Vincent Price!






















Kleo also sent this classic The Far Side card. I'm a big fan of this comic strip and this one always makes me laugh.





















There was also a Bizarro cartoon tucked in there. Check out the halos on the chickens. :o) Thank you Kleopatra for a wonderful surprise package. I love the books and can't wait to start reading them.

A couple of days after Kleo's package arrived, I got an envelope from Sarah Kramer. Every once and a while she throws up a post like this one. I was one of the lucky 13 and this came for me in the mail - a Herbivore button and a temporary tattoo!


I've got another crazy week coming up, but will try to stop by blogs to see what everyone else has been up to. I would also like you all to say a prayer for Mattie who has been quite sick. Let's hope she pulls through and gets back to being her old self again in no time.

I have to admit, I love the crazy stamps we have to choose from. My wife bought a couple books of Star Wars stamps the last time she was at the post office, and it was hard for me to stick them on envelopes. I hated to see them go. :)

What a cool package from Kleo! So sweet of her... Oh, yes, and I have seen each Brady Bunch episode numerous times myself and thought I was the only person still in existence who thinks it's kinda cool! How fun!

aww, how sweet! I love the Brady Bunch too. Even those crazy Brady reunions they did in the late 80's and early 90's.

Wow, how lucky are you!? I agree with Bazu, it's great how real these blog friends are.. it's a whole community. Funny Canada book haha.
My favorite episode is the "pork chops n' applesauce" one.. haha.

theONLYtania said...

Ouhp.. it was Megan who said the blog friends thing. I stand corrected.

Yeaaah for fun packages in the mail! Kleo is so thoughtful to pick out these goodies for you - I especially dig the Bizarro cartoon (Sorry Sanders). Blog friends rock!

Melody Polakow said...

kleo is such a great lady... I hope so much that Mattie is OK...

I think Kleo should be made the Patron St of Vegan Bloggers. Isn't she a sweetie?

Aw thanks! [: Yeah, I'm pretty lucky to have such supportive parents. It'd be hard not to. Ah, I know. You should try the recipe for it, I linked it. Pretty easy, and so worth it. Haha. Thats what I thought too when I became vegetarian, saying I couldn't give up cheese. The alternative "cheeses" aren't spectacular but it hasn't been that hard. and I don't miss cheese as much as I thought I would.

Jody from VegChic said...

Wow, how cool is it to get surprise packages in the mail? That's awesome. Kleo is one nice lady!
