Tibbers asked a good question, regarding what can and cannot be in anything sent out to us. I know it’s cheating, but I went back to an earlier FAQ post and just cut and paste the answer here.
"Of course you can send me things! Please, do! I love mail. I don’t have the address yet, but I’ll post it as soon as I know. I’ll have an APO address overseas- which means it’ll cost the same as shipping something to New York. And I’m not the only one here- my buddy/ co- workers Micky, Billy, Derek and Ruth could use some love, too. Yarn (especially of the sock variety!), roving, music, lip balm, comics, letters, cookies, and sunscreen are always welcomed!
"Here are the rules: please avoid sending anything with alcoholic content, anything that can in any way be considered pornographic (example: Maxim, most workout magazines, silly racy cards- all considered semi- pornographic), any images of Mohammad, no weapons, and finally, no pork products."
While we’re talking about mail, though, really- I’d kill for just a postcard these days. My room is bare and I miss getting mail already.
I have a lot more to say, but everyone else is on the internet right now too, which means my connection it just garbage right now. Tomorrow. Tomorrow, I promise.
