Giving Back

Expressing my gratitude.

Yesterday, I successfully packaged a bag of Air Heads, an appreciative letter, and the complete and unabridged works of Edgar Allen Poe in support of Peter Sunde – hope he enjoys it!

My mom even sent a letter to Gottfrid

Later today, my mum provided the receipt that she got from the Postal Service. It had a smiley face in red with a little message right above the $35.64 price that was necessary for the parcel to arrive in Sweden. The message complained about something along the lines “This sacrifice is well worth it.”. I later complained to her about her subtle complaint. It ended as a truce.

Overall, it was definitely a decent day. 😄
