Oh my god! More early computer geeks! In the 80's I was dating guys off of BBS's whom I contacted with my good ole' Apple IIe (the oh, so much better computer than the II+ I had before). My boyfriend (sysop of a BBS, of course) used his Commodore 64 to work up the bogus scholarship letter. Ah, for the good old days when only smart guys were online, and there were not many worries of running into majorly weird criminals.
To keep this message on topic: When mailing gag packages, ladies, do not forget the greatest fear of all men: The Tampon Box! I sent one to my hubby in navy boot camp, totally all original packaging with just teeny weeny address labels on it. Since while in basic training the guys have to open all mail in the presence of a supervisor, my man plopped the tampon box down on his superior's desk and asked if he really wanted him to open it in front of him. The super shoved it back at my husband and told him to get it off his desk!
ratjen37: Catheter boxes and viagra stationary?! I have got to make some hospital contacts to score some of those!
StephInTheCity: An evil package swap sounds great, but I do not think I qualify as a swap coordinator - I've been in only two swaps. I'll have to check the rules.
