Dear Mr. Veen: lately every time I catch you watching "The Office" I'm reminded that you pretty much are Jim. It almost makes me want to find some keds so I can be Pam - but not quite. Dear 37: so far you have shown me a pretty good time although I can't believe that I actually am your number in years! In so many ways I still feel like I'm in college. Dear Eddie Vedder: this song is such a good reminder to just breathe, and there's nothing quite like your voice to do the reminding. Dear first week in February: historically you have been my least favorite week of all the weeks in the year - however I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt if you can prove it to me. I'm watching you! Dear Friends: we have known each other since we were 7 years old! That means we've been friends for THIRTY YEARs. Love you guys! And last to Mr. Veen: thanks for setting your alarm 15 minutes early for me today so I'd have a little more time in the bathroom. I love you bunches of oats!
