i found The 1998 Box, replete with saved magazines, old letters from jodi, old photos from L.A., the arts county fair, and memories of trips.
it's very strange remembering yourself from 6 years ago. it's even worse seeing photos of yourself from then -- the glasses!! the grungey army pants&t-shirt look!! the horror!! and the green hairdye was washing out then too.
i found an old story of jodi's and a line in a letter from her telling me that i'm never ever allowed to say that i can't write ever again after having apparently described the bus people to her in a letter i wrote. i miss getting stories from jodi. i don't even know if she writes anymore. (do you?)
