please mr. postman, look and see...

This past week the postman delivered more than just bills to my house. On Monday our prize for best knock-knock joke arrived from Mr. Fab. The jury said JQ had the best joke, but when Fab announced the winners on his February 3rd radio show, he said his favorite joke was mine. Since I have such a giving husband, JQ let me accept the prize—four soaps from Pandora's Chest. I chose one each of these blends: Lemongrass & Tea Tree,Oatmeal & Honey, Rosemary Mint, Bulgarian Lavender. When my package arrived there was a bonus! A small bottle of Cocoa and Shea Lotion in Bulgarian Lavender. As you can see, I wasn't the only one taken with my winnings.


On Friday I received another package. This cool little item.


It's a cigarette case from Camel. I don't smoke, but my name is on their mailing list. They sent me an offer for a free case. I could get it just by going online, picking the design I like, and putting in my promotion code. I figured I could keep business cards or something in it so I thought why not. I had no idea it would be so big—or have a lighter with it—but I dig it.

Did you get anything cool in the mail this week?

Ooo I love when things other than bills come in the mail! Lets see, I got a note saying a test I had was all clear which was good and an audiobook I had been waiting for from Amazon finally arrived.

I am sure you already smell good, but now you are going to smell even better!

Yay! Soap! I did not receive anything fun in the mail this week. I sent V-Day Cards to my family, and all of them called and responded, "Thanks for the card! Sorry, I didn't send any this year." Um. Thanks.

I got four monkeys and a large purple dildo.

Or was that last week?

avitable—The shipping costs on four monkeys must be outrageous.
