Welcome to the 8th annual Bored Holiday Card Exchange!
Back again by popular demand is our card exchange of fun and good times! So limber up your gnarled keyboard fingers and send a card to your fellow boreders. It's awesome, darn nice and it's a good way to make all your real life family and friends say, who the hell is Squid Boy and what on earth is a Smirkdirk? This year has brought a whopper of changes, good, bad and in-between, to a lot of us so I'm thinking this year some holiday cheer is extra needed. So here are the normal deets and guidelines.
MOST IMPORTANT - It's all about love, cheer and all that crap this time of year and the card exchange is no exception. We use the honor system to keep private info private and drop any past naughtiness to extend a well-wishing for the season. Our track record is good and this year should be no exception.
Anyone and everyonethat is a known poster(despite our personal shite we must and do look out for each other)can join since this is a thing where we can leave our differences and crazysauce at the keyboard. Also, we've made a collective decision in years past that if you're an unknown newb we'll ask that you wait until next year and some time to know you better. If there's a question about anyone we'll talk amongst ourselves and decide if you're in. Sorry, but that's the dealio.
So, if you'd like to join in the festivities please e-mail me your address by Sunday,November 24th and I'll send the master addy/name list out on Monday,November 25th with details on postage and so forth.
Please send your RSVP & address with "OT Card Exchange" in the subject line to:
**Please include your board name and how you'd like your name/address listed. Both will be included on the list. I will also send a confirmation reply so if you don't get that than I didn't get yours and there's a problem so send a smoke signal or carrier pigeon or leave me a note here.**
Some extra stuff:
If you're worried about budget again this year, don't. We won't expect the fancy. Use the back of your gas bill, doesn't matter. And we have a lot of Fairy Boardmothers & fathers out there. If you need financial help send up a smoke signal and we'll make it happen. We'd rather throw some change at you so you can play along.
On average we have between 25 and 30 people now so really you're looking at maybe $25 to $30 for the whole shebang. It'll be worth a trip to the dollar store if you can swing it. I promise.And you'll save so much money by not stuffing them with glitter (damn you, jo! I found glitter stars in my damn house until the damn day we moved!).
P.S. because it needs to be mentioned. Please remember this is not a faith-based thing, unless you know the person like that, please respect people for givingout their real names and addresses, and I'll say it again - we've never had problems before and don't want to have any now.
Make sure you send to everyone on the list, no leavsies outsies. And lazy butts need to make sure they unlazy their butts. I'm looking at you, lazy butts.
In conclusion: Happy Holidays, bitches!
