I miss you. I want to know what you are like right now. I feel like I know this person, that I love this person, but it has just been so long and I feel like an outsider looking in! I love this blog because I can hear you say some of these things and it always makes me smile. You are cute Jen and I adore you. By the way, I feel completly responsible for your love of the Foo Fighters and I hope you remember that.
