See, there's this thing that I've been wanting to do since I was a child but it involves mailing a lot of letters which is not, itself, a problem except for the whole stamp thing.
Stamps cost money. Stamps are money. Stamps are the reason that, if not for a vindictive law passed in a Republican lame duck session requiring the Post Office to pay retirement benefits for people haven't been born yet, the US Post Office pays for itself with room to spare. (Any why everyone claiming the Post Office has anything to do with taxes is lying their asses off and should never be trusted about anything ever again without visual confirmation from no less than two independent sources whose reliability is not in doubt.)
And the thing about stamps costing money dovetails in unpleasant ways with the fact that I am utterly, completely, and in all other ways broke.
Thus I am putting out a call to my readers that I expect to go unheeded because none of my readers are rich and stamps cost money. They are money.
I want stamps. If you happen to have a bunch of (US) stamps lying around that you don't need because you used to run a newsletter that you no longer run could you send me an email so I can give you my address and you can use some of those stamps to send me the rest of them? If you happen to have a bunch of money that could be used to buy stamps that you don't know what to do with, there is a donate button at the top right of this blog.
Yeah, I'm expecting zero response because asking for stamps is asking for money and asking for money is unlikely to succeed, but at the same time if you can't fulfill a dream you had as a small child by asking for charity on the internet, what can you do?
