Dear mr. pinkwater,

I just got e-mail last week and yours is the second sight i decided to come to.

I was glad to see the picture in the photo gallery of you floating a foot above the ground. When I was in fifth grade, three of the boys in my class wrote to you and got those postcards. I always wanted one after that, but decided to be content with your books.

The funny thing is, as I was reading this ‘guest book’, or whatever you want to call it, one of those guys is in here, about ten people down- Joshua cohen. He wrote to you in fifth grade, along with kareem haddad and jeremy mai.

i have a feeling he’s going to write you again soon, so anyway, Hi Josh. I have always wanted to ask you how you felt about a movie being made of the snarkout boys and the avocado of death ? It’s one of my all time favorites and I think even an adaptation of it would be so much fun to make.

also, your books and film have inspired my life in both my work and my eating habits. when I was 16 I got a job at this place called ‘famous corn dogs’ in the mall. I wanted to be eva from stranger than paradise, and I wanted to be the girl in the snarkout boys.

Their corn dogs weren’t famous, and I don’t really like corn dogs. but they had great pretzels, and if you’re working by yourself you can stick all different types of cheese and things and make corn dogs out of those.

ps, what’s up with the kansas followiing? I’m from kansas too.

Lora Farrell -- It's like this: I don't really have all that many readers, and those I have who aren't locked up somewhere are likely to have net-access. So if you keep coming here, sooner or later you'll meet everyone you ever knew.

Kansas is cool, far as I can tell.
