first, i don't know what it's for, but you received a check for $159 from l.a. superior court. it was made out to you at the newton address. i deposited it in your checking account.

second, i cancelled that psycho gift that i ordered for you from target because they originally said it would take up to six weeks to ship and yesterday their six weeks were up, and when i called they said "it hasn't shipped yet and please hold on so i can find out what the estimated ship date is now." so never order from target online. they're not good online. i've had issues before. BUT i ordered that same psycho item for you elsewhere and you should receive it by next monday, april 13th (jeff's address...).

here's a little story you'll find amusing, i'm sure. walking home on lincoln street after going to the bank, i was stopped by a woman who was about to get into her car. she said, "miss, there's something on your sweater." attached to my sleeve was a yellow post-it that said "not yet washed." (that's the note i stick on the dishwasher when it's not full. how it got on my sleeve, i have no idea). so i laughed and she laughed and an old lady standing there laughed. and that's when it came to me: i am on this earth for everyone else's amusement.
