So, very China news... I haven't been able to check my mail for two months because they locked all the mailboxes and I've been unable to get my key for my box. My landlord told me yet again today that he couldn't do it, so my solution was to violently tear the face of the box off with a discarded comb handle with all my might, eventually breaking the comb. Go American ingenuity! I was then treated with eleven letters all at once! Wow, so I want to thank Cindy, Linda, Scott, Ariel and Billie for their letters and it feels so great to find such an avalanche of reading from everyone!
