    Thanks for looking past my initially annoying comments. Your response was quite insightful and interesting.

    Much appreciate the close read of my latest piece.

    I edited my window story a little and added some things, though not necessarily in the way that you might prefer.

    Yeah, there was a massive Seattle to Chicago migration in 2002. We would've taken more people, but Paula's car was full of cats. Can you send us some coffee?

    Hi! I haven't seen that cartoon. Is it better than the Snorks?

    This place seems pretty cool. I like the look and feel. Thanks for the invite!

    Under the Volcano. Such a great book. I tried to read it when I was 30 and couldn't. Ten years later, I couldn't put it down.

    Hey Matt! Now I remember why your name is so familiar:

    Great to see you here.
