Yahoo Mail has been doing this weird thing lately where sometimes, after I read or delete a message or whatever, it puts me on the FIRST page of my Inbox instead of the last one.  I don't throw anything out, so I have a lot of messages in there.

The one on the bottom of the page was from Jeff, and out of curiousity I opened it up, just to see what it said.  It's from the first of August, 2001, and here's the bulk of the message:

anyway, i have some bad news.  well, bad for me:

Dear Jeffrey:

Thanks for visiting the Wrigley web site to request the name of the actor in our commercial for Big Red gum.

Although we'd like to be helpful, because of contractual agreements with those who produce the commercials, as well as the actors and actresses who appear in them, we are unable to distribute information about the participants.  However, we can tell you that the actor is not Garrett Morris.

Again, thank you for stopping by Wrigley.com.  We hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely yours,

Denise Young
Consumer Relations Coordinator

you realize what this means?  the Powers behind the sinister global conspiracy against me have recruited the once-proud Wrigley Chewing Gum Co in its war against my credibility.  things are getting serious.

Poor, deluded Jeffrey . . .

So did you ane Jeffrey watch Eternal Sunshine yet?

yes, we finally did. and man, i for one absolutely loved it. i need to see it again so that i can remember all the moments that, while watching it, i found to be just...perfect. i was very impressed with how it stayed together. a movie like that, i could see it easily slipping into muddled confusion, but i felt like it really stayed on track. and david cross was, of course, genius.

what were your thoughts, sean?

I think it's amazing. It's so well done. I know what you mean with the perfect moments. Like when they are watching the elephants, or when they are under the covers, or on the ice, or killing the bird, and my favorite scene near the end where they meet for the first time. And the part where he wanted ice cream is priceless. Anyway, I think the message is delivered almost perfectly, and the only thing I don't like about it is the length of the ending, although it's completely necessary. Just that that huge amazing scene in the beachhouse should be the ending to some movie.

Yes! And I liked it. Unfortunately, I wasn't totally blown away, as I was expecting to be. They showed too much of them fighting, they waited too long to show me why I should even want them to be together. So I liked it a lot, it's just not my new favorite movie, like I had hoped it would be. Oh well, that's okay. Maybe I will feel differently if I watch it again.

But see, I think it's not that you're supposed to be rooting for them to be together or whatever; it's just that what they had was what they had, and it had good parts and bad parts, but it was all just life and you should appreciate all of it and not let it go, blah blah blah. I know you know that, I'm just saying I see your point, but I liked the way they first went through why he was getting the operation done in the first place, all the bad shit that was in the relationship, but that he didn't think about all the good things he would be losing. I'm having trouble actually saying what I am thinking and whenever I put it into words it comes out as a cliche. Whatever. I think you shouldn't necessarily want them to be together, you should just want them to appreciate the times they had together, good or bad, because that's what life is(<--clichessssss). And that's why the story is still so sad to me, that it all gets lost, what only those two people know and felt, and the only positive is that maybe they can try to do it again.

okay, in retrospect, it looks incredible. i'll admit that the tentacles of the conspiracy probably didn't reach into the upmost echelons of power at Wrigley. but someone got to Denise Young. the truth is out there.
