Real mail came yesterday! In a BOX! From Finland!!!
Which has the best stamps. Look! Moomin-shaped stamps!
Tragic side-note: We ate most of the candy immediately but left a couple half-eaten chocolate bars on the back porch overnight. This morning they are gone, almost certainly taken by the rampageous squirrels who feel anything on the back porch is tribute.
Wait... No. Sorry, Finland. I just googled around, and... Star Trek postage stamps? Liberia wins for stamps.
Though, where's Uhura? Come on, Liberia! She's from your continent! Or is she? Uhura speaks Swahili in TOS, but is it ever said where she's from?
OK, yes. The full character description, in Gene Roddenberry's 1977 Writers'/Directors' Guide for an aborted second series, is as follows:
Rank of Lieutenant Commander, Communications Officer, played by attractive young actress Nichelle Nichols. Uhura was born in the African Confederacy.
--per Memory Alpha
Whoops--I spoke too soon. Seems Liberia did issue a Uhura postage stamp is a different series. (Pendant for sale on etsy.)
I wonder, how does this work, countries making stamps of commercial works of other countries?
But I am going to STOP here with this line of inquiry and get to work.
Just one more thing.
Speaking of communications, now that I've taken the word verification off, I have several items my Spam Comments folder. Some are the usual "buy a [dubious item]", but spam has gotten sweeter too. Even though I know they are robotic, I can't help but feel touched by their praise.
Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing! Feel free to visit my web site ...Well, thank you very much, anonymous scrivener! I'll take that, even though it's on an unlikely post. But who knows? Surely some roommate somewhere really does go on and on about how people don't know who Burt Lancaster is.
