I got a wedding invitation in the mail yesterday, filled it out, and dropped it in the main this morning.  This is an amazing feat, considering I usually toss the invitations on a desk to "get around to", forget, and send back sometime after the RSVP date!

Valentines has always been about getting a heart-shaped pizza from Boston Pizza.
Oh… that and going to WalMart the next day for cheap candy!

My tickets:

Winning ticket:

I laughed for two minutes!  The game was good, and a shootout win is always exciting.

So apparently, telegram service has ended a week ago (news blurb).  While I knew that telegram services existed, I never questioned why, or more specifically, when it would end.  I never received a telegram, but now that its gone, I think it would have been a cool novelty to have received at least one in my lifetime.  So the lesson of the story is… ummm… make sure you have received a postcard from someone you know, while there is still time.
I also wonder if they replaced the service with something equivalent.  Can I still go to these offices, and say "I want to send a message from A to B", and have them take care of it?  I suppose that even if they used an internet chat window instead of a telegram, and then performed the same delivery as before, it should be cheaper and maybe less prone to error.
