stamp-gate 2006

well, yesterday was a close call!
sometime in the afternoon, Thurston went to the post office across from his office to purchase a quantity of LoveBird stamps, the ones i had chosen for our save-the-date.*

the clerk informed him that "those stamps are done."

when T called me with this news, i was in a bit of disbelief. i then sent my brother on a similar errand, to the post office in our neighborhood. he also called me with similar news. the downtown post office was also selling the same story: the stamps are "over" and have been for months.

victims of bird flu??

anyway, i decided to log on to the USPS web site and, lo and behold, they appeared to have the stamps for sale. so i bought many of them. phew!
because i mean, clearly, the stamp is the most important element of the STD, right? that's what people look for, no?
* in emails to T and to my wedding planner i often refer to my save-the-dates as STDs. this please Thurston no end, as he is now enamored of telling people that he will be sending them an STD through the mail. oh, that T...

And this is why I plan to elope... although your persistence is very impressive. Personally, I'd be going with the "Crops of the Americas" stamps that I already have sitting in my desk drawer due to my lack of etiquette or motivation.

i'm a bit wedding OCD, perhaps. but, it keeps me off the streets...
