  • Photo Album Returned

    April 16th, 2005
    justinherring  [html]
    Justin Herring now has his photo album back. He emailed me a while ago wanting it back, having found my site through a search for his name. it was a little confusing, as I didn't really have any way to verify that the gmail account actually had a connection to him. I asked him to describe parts of the book, but he didn't remember it that well and so did about as well as a careful guesser would have. I told him I would send it, and then waited for a while, figuring that if he was just some prankster who happened upon the site then he wouldn't follow up. He did follow up though, and so I shipped it. I'm not sure how I feel about lying to him. I wanted to be sure that I did not send his album to someone else, but I also didn't want to make it too hard on him if it really was him.

    Housing is set for me now. Lucas, David German, and I will be rooming in the fishbowl in ML. Should be fun. Housing is not set for Katie or Allison. They would like to live in ML but as it is a lottery it is hard to know how it will work. I'm quite happy I blocked.
