I walked into the post office this morning to hear ... chirping! Crates of baby chicks were being mailed. I had no idea that was possible, but they sure are cute. And yellow and fluffy and adorable.
 
In about two hours I'm driving to Kansas City to meet up with mainhoonemily , ransomedsea , windandtherain , jkgeroo , and - I hope - amea ! FUN TIMES. Watch twitter for updates on adventures n' stuff. :D

I have more than hope! I have a phone number and an open weekend! (Only I don't have your phone # any more, sorry, because my old American phone broke? You can definitely text me!)

I'll text you my number shortly!

I think Saturday afternoon will work for us if it will for you. Jordan and I are picking up a friend from the airport at ten, and we don't meet up with Lizzi until around five, so name the place and we can do something in between!

I'm so very happy. :D

Oh so THAT'S what time we're meeting her. I'm not picking up details very well at this point. Be sure to have your vuvuzelas so I can find you in the airport. I'm not sure I'd notice clown outfits at this point--but hey, I might get off work early today, and getting off work early=more sleep tonight!

Don't worry, Julia! All you have to do is get yourself on the plane, and we'll take it from there. <3

That happened to my mom once! Apparently mailing chicks is kind of common--who knew? So she was asking the postal workers about it and they told her a story about one time when someone mailed a snake and it got loose! :O

I asked "So, could I mail a parrot?" And they said "well ... I've never seen a parrot mailed before, but hey, why not?"

I love the postal system.

When we were little, it was soooo exciting to have to go to the post office and pick up our boxes of chicks!
