Will it really be captioned "Fuck You Clown"?

By "address" I mean your physical street address and you'll get a physical street card. So you'd have to be comfortable with me having your physical street address.

Done!

I won't use my work address. The scanning process there can unintentionally mangle mail.

Ok, I'm heading to bed shortly, so for awhile if you don't get a reply it doesn't mean anything. If you don't get a reply tomorrow, resend me the email.

I'll probably close the door on requests in the next day or two.

hope my missive reaches your inbox in time - this will probably be a shitty holiday here, and this card will be a highlight of the festive season for me here in Upper Canada.

25: I've read a fair amount of Tom Wolfe, more than I would recommend, and dislike his books about as much as any intelligent person would who has read very many of them. I never really faulted him for coincidences -- almost all big novels rely on them -- but for his overblown prose and cartoonish characters.

The Right Stuff is ok though.

Yeah, the overload of connections seems like it is about #28 at best on a list of What's Wrong with Tom Wolfe.

By "fair amount" I don't mean that I've actually read A Man In Full, the college book, or anything like that.

James Woods had a pretty good take-down of his most recent effort in the New Yorker a few weeks back. Wolfe's prose has become the opposite of what I think prose should be, and is interesting in that respect I guess.

I got mine- how did you do the printing of the address? We have a stamp for return address but hand-write all the destinations, if we could make that automated the whole thing would be much easier.

Thanks, all! It was so much fun for me to send out.

It looks like Ithere is almost zero Internet on this train, but on Saturday I'll be around regularly again.

SP - a website from bave where you upload your addresses and they send the cards out for you. I think card store.com but I'll check later to be sure.

I wonder if Heebie used different pictures for our cards. So we are all saying what a great picture it is, and we aren't even talking about the same thing. Nosflow might do that.
