OperationMAIL: 2 Weeks To Go

And I am freaking the hell out! I can't believe it's almost here. Which I feel like I say every time I write about it. I feel like I have a ton to do before I leave and not enough time to do it. I have started picking up some travel items, and getting everything gathered into one place. I'm digging out any and all cords I might need, locating things I bought months ago. I check my Passport every day because they're known to just change and move … [Read more...]

OperationMAIL: My Dark Passenger

While you may not know the name, you probably know a few of the people who rest there. They include Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. I … [Read more...]

OperationMAIL: Autograph Stressing

When did picking something out to get signed become a stress related thing? When I was younger, I'd just grab whatever was around (newspaper, shirt, towel) and be happy with that. But for some reason, the "Age of Ultron" premiere is freaking me out and I can't decide on what to get signed. Granted, it has to be something small since I'm flying to London. Plus I don't want to be stuck carrying something heavy all day. It can't just be a regular … [Read more...]
