How to get more post....

I signed up to Postcrossing last month, and am rather enjoying it. Basically, you send a postcard to someone somewhere in the world; when it gets there, someone else (not the same person -- or hugely unlikely to be, anyhow) sends one back to you. You can have up to 5 postcards in transit at a time to start off with; at the moment I'm up to fourteen sent by me and received at their destination and twelve received by me.

All it takes is a stack of postcards and some stamps (56p within Europe, 62p outside; although I have ticked the "I'm willing to send cards within my own country too" box, that has not yet happened). It's a bit lighter-weight than committing to send actual _letters_ -- and I can just about write legibly by hand for the amount required by a postcard, I'd struggle to do so these days for a letter ;)

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

    Merry winter-festival-of-your-choice, all of you!

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
