There was an essay in the New York Times Sunday Review last week by Ethan Hauser called I Love the Post Office that I want to pass on to you. Hauser articulated something I have written about before, the harshness of NYC post offices. They can be frustratingly inefficient, even for a snail mail loyalist like myself. Especially for a snail mail loyalist like myself! In fact, when I travel I love to visit post offices. They’re consistently much nicer than the ones here.
After I read the essay I realized that I went to high school with Ethan Hauser.
Well done, Ethan!
VSM approves of this marketing strategy by Showtime to promote their new television series, HAPPYish. Postcards! I have not seen the show but Kathryn Hahn is one of the leads and she is my all time favorite. Loved her in Afternoon Delight and Transparent. And Steve Coogan is pretty great too.
Sunday is Mother’s Day y’all. Make some cards and send them to the moms in your life- you know that they will be appreciated. Get them in the mail pronto!
Look at these adorable hand sewn mom cards by Memory Threads that I saw at a Brooklyn fair this weekend. Jenna, the creative force behind Memory Threads, provided sharpies for kids to customize the cloth cards for their moms. Such a sweet idea!
