Hey. No time to write long because this computer belongs to one of the Mexican boys... plus the keyboard is set to Spanish and none of the punctuation marks are where they are supposed to be (including the apostrophe, which I cannot find at all and which is absolutely killing me) ... but I just wanted to say that I am watching Monster (the movie with Charlize Theron) and I realize now that no matter how confused I am about what I am going to go on to "do with my life" and all, I see so clearly now that I am already so far ahead of other people in this life. No matter what happens to me, I will always be better than this woman in the movie, and there is a certain relief in that.

I do sort of like her name, though: they call her Lee.

I also read the best book in the world today: Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. Still trying to decode the secret code in the back. Let me know if anyone gets it.

Goodnight. Talk to you on Wednedsday.
