  Keeping in touch.
I did get the thin envelope from you today with your note on page five. I’m not sure what letters you have received, so I am sort of puzzled as to why I have received no feedback from you.

On the other hand, the point I was making about just writing and letting you pick what you like is not to worry about you responding. I do not mean that in a negative way. It seems to me that by writing in a somewhat diary format, you might actually see something that you would not normally have received had I been typing.

Also, by not expecting a response to everything I write, I am less confused and disappointed when I think I have sent you something important and I do not get a response from you, or I get a delayed response since we are not actually trading letters. So do not sweat it. Besides, it is already day three of this plan (oops, now day four) and I almost screwed up on jotting down today's activities and thoughts.

I sort up screwed up food-wise tonight. After my walk I came back, took my shower, and couldn't decide whether to eat my last two mackerel wraps, have the usual tuna fish, or make my wraps with cheese and pepperoni. So I made the tuna fish, one can with ten or twelve crackers, and then immediately decided I was still hungry and made the wraps with cheese and pepperoni and ate all four of them.

I also popped a bag of popcorn right before 10:00 PM lock down and sat there munching it while reading the blogs you sent today. The preacher kid (now grandma) is interesting in parts. I saw an article in the NY Daily News a couple weeks ago about cuddle parties. People of both sexes lay about in PJs and cuddle. I believe the article hinted that while some males may get "excited", there was no sex involved.

I did go back and read the fourteen pages I sent out Thursday. I have to be careful when writing side two that I do not move the second page carbon, because a few lines ended up written over each other. Oops.

As I said, I am going to try and type the pages, but I found that some of the sentences were missing a word, sometimes a key word and tough to figure out. That speaks to the speed of my mind moving faster the speed of my hand. I hope it is not too troublesome for you to read.

I think I tended to slowly slip down that slope of legibility, but let me know if this will work for you. We will see if I can even keep this up long enough for your response to reach me.
Hi Pete, I'm a bit concerned that you were weighing your options in regards to your mackerel wrap. There shouldn't be options. You should just not eat mackerel wraps. Mackerel wraps are not good things to eat.
Hi, I just wanted to say that I was enjoying your posts, keep it up. :)
Mackerel? Ugh.

Frankly,I don't see the point in cuddle-parties... it just seems a little redundant, I guess.

I've been reading this blog for some time now, and I feel it's a little boring to make comments about how I'm glad you're doing this, and all that crap. So I won't. What I will say however, is that projects are great, and good for keeping your mind occupied. Especially ones you stick to. If this was my project, I'd have probably abandoned it for months at time now, occassionally promising to return, etc. Ah well.

I feel like people should be telling you about their lives in their replies, maybe... I mean, you tell us about yours and yourself, so it only seems fair that you should get to read about us and what we do, right? Maybe not... let us know!
