No Work - Work From Home

Felt like crap today... my eyes are killing me so i stayed home. Was up all night because I couldn't sleep, so I slept in late today - 2PM. Finished making all of the 'Sesame Street' correspondences, but only the base level of them. I went out to grab a bite to eat with Kanka around 7PM and figured out the solution to these correspondences. Since part of these cards features cut and reassembled coloring book pages I'm going to attach a crayon via a string to each card. I'm not sure if these will make it throught the postal system, but thats the fun of it all isn't it. One of four things will probably happen:

1. The correspondence will arrive unscathed
2. The crayons string will be severed and only the card will arrive
3. The entire corresspondence - crayon included - will be placed into a bag (this has happened before)
4. Nothing will arrive at all

I'm excited about these possibilities... I think the theme of my cards is starting to show itself... complication, chance & challenge. All of these correspondences are going to be trouble... I'd be extremely pleased if nothing showed up, because then that would be the work. That would rock. I'm definitly going to try and do the baged air correspondences. Initially I had a dilema as to whether place postage on the outside of the bag or on the inside card. Now the answer is evident. It has to be on the inside. This again will complicate things. Heres what could happen:

1. The correspondence will arrive untscathed with hand canceled on the outside of the bag
2. The correspondence will arrive untscathed with no hand cancelation
3. The bag will be popped, discarded and only the card will arrive hand canceled
4. The bag will be popped and placed with the card into a bag
4. Nothing will arrive at all

Now I just need to figure out what to do with the white coke sign correspondences.
