Ok, here I am again...but today...

"Please draw me something ugly!"

I am not sure if I am supposed to execute an ugly theme beautifully, or a beautiful theme with my natural skill...

I saw a similar request today too! Not one I got, but she's an RAS I'm sending for someone else. At the bottom of her profile under her wishlist, She wanted cards that the sender thought was extremely ugly and would like the sender to write why they thought the card was ugly.

I also got a profile last year that asked for a drawing of a potato in the message area. Mine looked more like a shriveled rock.

It was in the middle of a list of requests so long it simply couldn't be picky:

"picture of a seafood meal"

Oh, man, I *so* wish I had that card to send!!!

"Black and white glossy cards with mysterious species"

How about this one -- I especially like the CORN

"If you would like to send me cards with an envelope,I really hope you put a corn or any other small items(such as stickers,receipts,badges,bookmarks,ticker stubs,void tickets,haven't written cards,stamps,pictures,photos,Calendar cards,letter pads...) from your contry in it."

Some of those items are pretty big.

Corn surely is a typo for coin, isn't it?

It could be a typo, but corn can also simply mean "seed."

Among a list of wishes and ideas that was simply generous and friendly:

"Kindly write me unusual and creative words."

I have seen this sort of thing before phrased almost as a demand to provide someone with blog fodder, but this user is so generous in their profile that I know they simply would like to see "unusual and creative words." I really want to draw this person's profile one day.

Someone who recently sent me a card, has the following request in his own profile:

"men wearing leather or rubber gloves"

...Shame that I can never draw his address now, because the funny thing is that I actually have such a card! :D

Maybe he should combine with the user that would really like cards showing...

"cosmetics and skin care"

How about "Please put on lipstick and kiss the postcard before sending" I said sorry I don't send things like that to people I don't know.

Cultural differences... that´s what makes Postcrossing so interesting :D

I lived last years close to ancient ruines built by the Mayans, so the request of a small stone from the Yucatan (in private swaps) never sounded weird to me.

What I find weird and scary is to send teabags or seeds by mail. I'm sure sooner or later that would become suspicious behaviour in my country and I would go to answer some questions to the police :freak:
