I think there are different levels of anticipation when you get a PWE or package in the mail.
When you see something in the box from eBay or Just Commons, or some such, you think "good, its here". You know what's in there cause you paid for it.
When you get a trade package, you think "alright!" You sent off some cards you probably didn't need, or at least know that they'll be in a better home. But the blogger community is always so generous that you know there's a surprise in there somewhere.
But the best packages are the surprises. "Hey, I know that name, but I wasn't expecting anything".
Such was the case the other day when I opened my mailbox to a PWE from Mark over at This Way to the Clubhouse.
Slayer parallel! Love 'em.
And Mark, yes I did need these. Thank you sir.
