Not sure how often you get these emails, but I wanted to let you know that I had a dream that we were roommates last night.  After you moved in, some woman came by and dropped off a lifetime's supply of cornflakes in for you.  As happy as I was about having an endless supply of cornflakes to mooch, I was concerned about how we were going to keep them away from the mice that currently reside in my apartment.

Even the fan-mail is surreal.
