Death Prediction Requests Round One

Hello! My name is Robynne. I’ve been helping David ! with some of the requests people have sent in for death prediction cards.

Anyone can get their very own death prediction, for free! And tons of people already have. The only requirement is that you send something in return. If you mail us some small item in trade for the card, and you include a self-addressed stamped envelope, we’ll mail you a death prediction!

Some people have sent in scraps of paper; some have sent in elaborate works of art. Some write long letters; some provide no note of explanation whatsoever. Looking over the eclectic variety of items that has accumulated in this office is terrifically exciting. So David has invited me to write about some of my favorite items that people have sent us in return for their death predictions.

This is a pretty awesome drawing! It’s got tons of details, a lot of action, cool patterns and shapes… I’m glad I got to see it! Many thanks to the artist for sending it in.

This is pretty much exactly the level of thing that is hoped for with these card requests. It’s clever, fun, and simple. A small experience that can brighten one’s day a little bit.

I happen to collect Disney theme park memorabilia. I don’t have one of these buttons, though I’d like one. I know if I had one I would never let it go, ever. I’m quite impressed that somebody out there willingly parted with theirs.

That’s all for now, but there are tons of things remaining that people have sent in that I’m looking forward to sharing with you! Opening all of these letters has been such a fun process!

Keep them coming!

    Robynne! I was SO EXCITED to be mentioned on the MOD blog! I sent the requests for myself and three members of my family which included the ‘First Visit’ Disney button. At the risk of decreasing it’s value for you, I work at Disney World and I am able to get these buttons anytime I want! There are several styles including ‘Happy Birthday,’ ‘Celebrate,’ ‘Family Gathering,’ ‘Just Married,’ and ‘Just Engaged.’ The plus side, however, is I can get YOU buttons anytime you want! Or, any other Disney memorabilia which may be available only in Florida. You let me know what you need! Thank you, also, for the awesome Machine of Death predictions! You, er, the machine, was right on with all four predictions. Of course mine was my favorite: WRONG TIME WRONG PLACE. 😀

    I’m glad you’re enjoying the predictions! I’m not terribly surprised to learn that the button came from a Disney employee. Rest assured that its value to me is unchanged, though I am slightly less in awe of your ability to let it go. Thanks for writing in! I hope your new understanding of what awaits you serves to guide you and your family members well in life.
