Doug and I have an important announcement to make. Despite our significant political differences, our totally disparate ways of looking at the world, the many ways we're totally incompatible, and how he really makes me mad sometimes with that conservative thing he does ... WE'RE MOVING IN TOGETHER!!! Please be happy for us!! xoxo
April Fools. xoxo
Also there's no reason to Rabbit, Rabbit! xoxo
Good one Mireille! Do we not Rabbit, Rabbit on April Fools? With good reason, I'd like a little extra luck :)

Reason, what comes last.
Weirsdo, I miss prose.
Mireille, you had me going. In fact, I put in a change of address form. Do you mind keeping the bills current until I can get it all straightened out?
