Dear Mr. Veen: eight years ago you became the proud father of a little girl who just so happens to look quite a lot like you. After looking through old pictures I've concluded (again) those Dutch genes are quite good looking. Dear DSW: yesterday you and I had a little bit of alone time and I ended up coming home with these instead of these. After all - who needs practicality anyway? Dear Froyo: not only are you delicious but it's fun to say "froyo" over and over again - especially in an accent of your choice - try it! Dear Sara Bareilles: umm - did you crawl inside my brain when I wasn't looking and read my mind for these lyrics? Favorite line found at 1:10. Dear Awesome 3000: Saturday morning I will join throngs of tired parents and excited children to squint through the mass of bodies in order to pick out my children. Please, please be kind. And last to Mr. Veen: all hail to the viking dragon boat racing master!
