    If we do it like this I am in.

    BTW, any news about the missing cameras? Did the mail companies reply to inquiries?

    I totally agree with all of the above.. But also feel its worth mentioning there are times when you genuinely get distracted or too busy to take a photo and even with the best intentions in the world - if you cannot take that shot within a one week period - you should mail it to the next person to keep the cameras moving. No explanations or apologies needed.. it's fairer on the rest of the group that way.

    Now am I doing a Europe and rest of the World ~vs~ The USA and Canada again? Or are we doing one camera one world?

    One camera, please. This project rather lost its charm for me when the two regions were divided.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    I checked up with my old housemates/colleagues and the camera never even reached Derbyshire....

    No, the USPS really doesn't give a %$%#.

    Though they did send me a nice impersonal form letter stating that they handle XXX billion items per day and things are bound to get lost, never to be found, from time to time and I should be very proud of the job they do most of the time. It was quite uplifting!

    One is enough. I felt like this all the time:

    Can I have a hands up from those in this thread who wish to carry on? The rules will be slightly different from the previous round in so much as cameras won't be sent anywhere until PM's have been exchanged and recorded delivery is going to be compulsory..

    Whaddya think?
    I'm in!

    Wow. That's a mighty big pair of balls he has.

    Dear Mike,
    My bad. I f#&ked up! You know what I'm sayin'? We're pretty busy here with lunch breaks, smoke breaks, pee breaks, filing our nails, gossiping on our cell phones, and chatting up customers so we can watch the other assholes standing in line get impatient. Buy another stamp and we'll see if we get it right next time. Thanks for playing.

    Hugs and kisses,
    Your Uncle Sam

    Yup, that's certainly is a valid interpretation of the letter. Now the trillion dollar question is... Will the US government let the USPS fail????
