I got zip


The city is tearing up my street in an upgrade mission that will result in certain segments of the population driving 80 from stop sign to stop sign instead of 50, or the more reasonable 25.

I had intended to ship out a bunch of card packages yesterday, but traveling was next to impossible from my location, so I had to postpone it until Monday, which has its own set of issues.

But if all goes right, I will be sending packages to destinations in the following zip codes:

33065
75201
90230
46750
08551
97202

And one to the following postcode:

CT8 8BH

Just so nobody feels left out, after I ship out those packages, I plan to work on packages for people in the following zip codes:

10028
46561
06489
21788
37865
63301
34270

(Plus, Greg L., I need your new address!)

And after that, I've got plans for packages en route to these destinations:

40475
55129
91381
33411
47408
94010

And there are the remaining contest consolation cards headed for:

08863
71753
11229
23223

(Also, Ryan G., Morgan, and John Bateman are eligible for contest consolation cards, but I have not received emails from you, so if you guys want cards I need addresses).

And, of course, there are always those trades that I'll get to "sometime" from these zips:

07747
60018
16933

While I'm at it, I still need to blog about cards I received from the following zip codes/postcodes:

CT8 8BH
34270
37865
73026
33411
40475

Bloggers from these zip codes root for the wrong baseball team:

92688
08054
85937
11563
10989
10028
12585
08215
86402
08515

The blogger residing in this zip code is lazy and fresh out of cash/ideas this afternoon:

13601

Finally, you might wonder what this has to do with the diamondy Sandy Koufax card at the top of the post. The answer is: nothing. I just I like it. It came from zip code 73026. I will show other cards from the package in a less cryptic fashion later at my leisure.

If you didn't see your zip code here, we have either just completed a trade, we have a general "it's cool" understanding of card exchanges in the future, your favorite sport team doesn't make me gag, your collecting habits kind of intimidate me, or maybe you need to blog more.

But don't hit me up for a trade right now. I'm a little busy. And the street's a mess.

  1. Can I copy and paste this post? With a few tweaks to the numbers, I'm in the same boat. Right down to the road construction!

  2. Something tells me that at some point soon there might be my zip code in one of those lists... Not yet maybe, but soon.
