Responsible superheroes don't drink and blog.

After the newsletter came out, we had a massive party on our dream cloud! And between our dream parties and the blog post party, we're still a little drunk on invisible punch.




















You know what they say, though, about being responsible superheroes: you should never drink and blog. As a result, your regularly scheduled Wednesday post will run next week as planned.

Before we shuffle away to sleep off our invisible hangover, two things:

1) We resent the newsletter yesterday afternoon to everyone who registered in MailChimp after February 1, as well as all LEP members who still hadn't opened the newsletter as of February 5.

If you are a LEP member who still hasn't received a copy of the newsletter, please check your spam folder to make sure it wasn't banished to spam by mistake before emailing us. If it was, be sure to add league@extraordinarypenpals.com to your contacts to ensure that doesn't happen with future issues. If it's still not in your spam folder, then let us know by emailing us and we'll send you a link where you can access the newsletter.

2) A gentle reminder that you have 3 more days to sign up for the penpal swap. The deadline for signing up is February 8, and this deadline is firm. That doesn't mean that the deadline has been "working out," it actually means that if you sign up for the penpal swap on February 9th (or any day after), you will not be matched with a partner. So take 30 seconds to send us an email and don't miss out on the opportunity to make two new extraordinary penpals!

  2. Internet ate my reply twice *lame*
    Found my newsletter. Turns out speed reading at 5am is not the wisest decision.
    Snuggled up on couch now with cup of tea and this fantastic newsletter!
    Have signed up for the LEP swap, adjusted my superhero name, and working on a illustration. I thought of the perfect one while stuck in traffic. Typical brain of mine.

    2. I love yours!
      You could make it all professional with PHD listed after your name :D
      Didn't take much to come up with my name. It was really just what I know best :)

    2. That makes sense. It is 10:40am on the 13th here (future looks fine btw), have no idea what crazy time the blog will say it is. I love the LEP, just not enough to be posting at 3am :D
