Lonely Days Are Gone, I'm A-Going Home
About Me: Male call, ladies! Sorry, that's just a little postman humour. It's lost on most people, though, since I'm not just the only postman in Termina...I'm the only postman in any timeline throughout all of history. Needless to say I'm a busy guy, and I haven't really had time to make friends. Every night I head down to the Milk Bar and sit next to my buddy Norm, and while the other patrons do talk to me I get the feeling they think of me as a know-it-all. You and I would get along, though...I'm a first-class guy, and even though my heart is stamped "fragile," my love is vast and enveloping. If you aren't already sick of these mailman jokes, then, by all means, keep reading.
Location: Clock Town
Hair: Stamped down
Occupation: Speedy Delivery!
I would like to meet: I'm looking for a woman who doesn't mind my hectic work schedule of walking around a town of about seven people twice per day. You know, the more I think about it, the more I realize I have a pretty sweet job.
I like to play the following sports: To be honest, I don't do much physical activity outside of work. Unless of course you count all the times I've had to chase down those bratty Bombers for stealing the L from the "Clock Town" sign.
My exercise regime consists of: Always ringing twice, dodging questions from jilted lovers, eventually evolving into a bird
My favourite music: The Paranoids, Sick Dick and the Volkswagens, that band that Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello formed
My favourite movies: 28 Dawns of the Last Day Later, The Running Man, Il Postino, 10
My favourite TV shows: Get a Life, The Amazing Race, The Amazing Dancing Postbox, Doomsday Preppers, Mr. Rogers' Bunnyhood
My dream is to: Deliver the letter. The sooner the better.
On a first date I'd like to: It's probably not worth thinking about, since I don't get any time off without the express written permission of Mayor Dotour, and that would never happen. I'm not disappointed, though. It's like our creed says: Neither snow nor rain nor heat death of the universe...
