Letterboxing is kind of like geocashing... you follow clues to a box hidden somewhere, and then you stamp your letterbox journal with it, and then stamp the journal in the letter box with your stamp.
a 10,000 piece puzzle???
And I looooove the paper crane idea!!!!

Did you start a blog?

*sigh*...I've forgotten my username/password for my blog. This tends to happen to me much too frequently...

Otherwise, it's going decently. I really need to start working a little harder, I suppose. I got a book from the library to read, I've heard it's really good, so since I'm sick, I could start that one today. Although I attempted reading the New Yorker a little while ago, and well...it didn't turn out so well. So we'll see how reading my book goes.
