Once upon a letter, my pen pal Kära was telling me about the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club and the pen pal she acquired from there. She was all sorts of excited because the website took the list of Geek Loves she submitted and matched her with someone who had a similar list. Of course I was intrigued, even more so once Kära posted this blog post promoting the website even more. It was a win/win because not only did I score my pen friend some points, I had the opportunity to make another new pen friend.
Here’s the list of Geek Loves I submitted last month:
- Alice in Wonderland
- YA Books
- Washi Tape
On the first of April I got an email saying I’ve been paired with someone named Annie so I immediately emailed the girl telling her about my Geek Loves and asking her about hers. Here are some excerpts from the email I got back:
Re: My Geek Loves
Can I just say I love gnomes!
And washi tape!! Oh, my love of washi!
Re: Annie’s Geek Loves
-crafts!! Any type of craft and there’s a good chance I’m going to go crazy over it. I’m thinking of joining a craft of the month club where every month they send you a craft to make. I still don’t know yet but it sounds like a great idea.
-stationery (I’m obsessed…there’s no way out for me)
-books. Literally, everything and anything to do with them. In fact, my favourite past time is to loiter at the bookstore or library. I just love books so much!
Yeah, I think we’re going to get along just fine! I started a letter for her that afternoon and this stuff was ready to be sent out the very next day:
Annie told me she’d let me know when the letter got there, but unfortunately that hasn’t happened yet. Regardless, I can’t wait to hear what she thinks of my geeky self or to get to know her better. Want to geek out to? Check out the International Geek Girls Pen Pals Club.
