Autostraddle Air Mail Is Coming Soon To An Inbox Near You

Bonjour mes amies! If the number of emails and formspring questions I’ve gotten in the past week are any indication, a lot of you are worried that I never got your pen pal requests or that Autostraddle Air Mail isn’t happening any more. That is so not the case! In the interest of keeping y’all in the loop/quelling any anxiety I might’ve caused, I wrote you a poem in the style of William Carlos Williams.

UPDATE: If you’re still looking to join, jump on over to this survey and you’re in, baby!

 

This is just to say

I have gotten

your emails

that contain

your vital stats

 

and which

you were probably

hoping

to receive responses to last week

 

Forgive me

there are 865 of you (!)

so it’s taking longer

than I expected

    This makes me feel a lot better! For some weird reason I was anxious that my stats weren’t good enough and so I didn’t get to be part of this. But now I’m excited again!

    This is incredible and awesome! Hey, maybe I could write to a couple of ladies so I could send 2-3 letters at a time instead of just 1.

    Maybe now I will check the mailbox more often than once a week. :)

    Jeeze, the things you guys do for us. I feel like as well as the regular donations there should be a ‘you work way too hard, have a whiskey on us’ fund.

    Also, way excited to find out who my pen pal is!

    I’d love to sign up too! (I dare say you’ll easily end up with a thousand gladies at this rate.)

    So is there anything we can do to help? It sounds like a lot of work to do all on your own.

    Is this still happening? It’s been over a month since the last update, and I haven’t heard anything back after filling out the google form :<
