After I logged my mail yesterday I wandered around the site for awhile. I read some of the posts wondering what a zine is, and thought for a bit, and said, “Oh, heck, why not?” So instead of finally writing the fan letter I’ve been planning for weeks, I made a zine. Started on the page layout at 6:30 pm, and finished folding, stapling and trimming the last copy at 1:45 am. Zine!

So today’s mail was five pieces: three copies of the zine with accompanying note cards; a note card letter to Mary, with a copy of the zine, some stamps to help her deal with all the LetterMo mail she’ll have to reply to when she returns home from the steampunk cruise, and a contribution toward the cost of the Web site; and, finally, the fan letter to Johnny Weir-Voronov, telling him how much I enjoyed his commentary and analysis during live feeds of the Olympic figure-skating events. Made it to the PO with twenty minutes to spare!
