the happy conclusion to the epic bookmark saga
Sometimes happiness is in a small and unexpected blessing.
Today, I went to my mailbox fully expecting the usual load of junk mail and bills. I was pleasantly surprised to find a hardcover book-sized package from Japan addressed to me. When I opened it, I found a 'thank you' card and many copies of this...
(nice and large size)
(on the back, in Japanese... design: Gar, year 2004, San Jordi Design Contest)
I was thrilled.
A few weeks ago, I had recreated the design after losing the original file. I sent them the new file, but I didn't hear from them immediately and I assumed it would take awhile for them to print up the design. I guess it didn't take so long at all, and now, I have an almost embarassingly large amount of bookmarks.
Anybody want a free bookmark? I'd hate for them to go to waste. E-mail or msg me, and I'll even mail it to you for free...
Someday, even if I'm still an mildly overweight, hairless, glasses-wearing, jobless, whiskey-guzzling, marginalized Asian American man, I'll be able to proudly tell my children that their father won a bookmark design contest. Haha.
because i forgot
I forgot to mention that it was a good weekend... helped moi moi move into a phat new pad, homemade dinner at Josh & Val's house, and the Ray Allen dropped 45 points to help the Sonics win Game 4. Nice.
mel - i know where u live. haha.
everyone else - e-mail me an addy... the file with all my addresses while I was in Japan got lost in the great computer transfer blunder. =(
kk - i'll bring some extras next time i visit Greenwood.
James - if you want some, lemme know... you could, ummmm, hand them out to your employees or something. haha.
I would love a bookmark if you could spare one and mail it to NY :) maybe put your John Hancock on it too please :)Post a Comment
