So, I don't have a computer. I know that I am the last person left in America who can afford one and still does not own one. I do have a cell phone, but it's a rather love/hate relationship. I love calling people when I want; I hate taking that damn thing every where I go. I should also mention that I don't carry a purse or a wallet.|
I do, however, like real mail. I realize it's expensive to buy paper and stamps and deal with the phone calls of people, but it just seems so much nicer to send any invitation through the postal service. And not just for the uber formal affairs. I will never forget the mailed invite I received for a "girl's night in." We watched sex and the city and ate icecream as promised in the invitation. I wouldn't call it black tie.
My cousins in Vermont and I still try to send letters and cards in lieu of email. It's so much more personal. And so what if news reaches us a day or two later than email? Not having a computer means I don't check my email everyday anyway.
Maybe I'm old-fashioned or maybe I'm just lazy. But, I think I'd like to bring back the mail. From now on, invites to my parties will arrive in your mailbox and so will cards.
Now, I just need everyone's address... and an address book.
