James Palmer's Journal - Day

2:35PM - It came from the mailbox

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved getting neat things in the mail. Weird things. Things that I've actually asked for as opposed to bills, credit card offers and other junk mail. A while back I told everyone that I was going to be writing non-sport trading card reviews for Trading Card News, and for that purpose I sent away for some cards, which have been trickling in slowly ever since. Most of these have been promo cards, which has a typical card scene on the front but an ad for the card series on the back, but today I got a whopping seven cards from an outfit called Monsterwax. Two of them are from the Monster Movie Classics and Monster Movie Classics 2 series, one featuring the cyclops from The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and another showing the scene from Valley of Gwangi of the T. Rex taking a bite out of an elephant. I've never seen such an unusual set of cards, but I stopped collecting them even before I quit comics cold turkey. Anyway, I may offer them up as freebies later on, so stay tuned.

As far as writing goes, I'm working on a couple of soon to be major projects. No, nothing fictional--I'm not a sadist--just some hopefully more lucrative non-fiction venues. Stay tuned for more of that news as well.
