Merry Christmas Alison,

I'm not sure how I first stumbled onto bluishorange, but once I did I was hooked. Your writing style leaves very little to be desired, except more. Who else could make sitting around the house, going to class, waiting tables, or getting arrested sound so interesting. Well, the last on is pretty interesting, but still.

I hope all is going well for you now, though I'm sure the recent breakup was no picnic. We've all been there, and we all feel for you, all the more because your writing makes us feel it more.

While I eagerly await the finish to your story, I realize that these things take time, and I can occupy myself with you snappy sidebar, and voluminous selection of photos.

Keep up the good work, and I'm sure that things will work out better that you thought possible.

Here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas, and a happy New Year.
