Dear McSweeney's,
I have a very fascinating and interesting story about buying your book... or
to be more precise, getting it as a gift.

Now, follow along carefully because it may get confusing. I got the year-subscription/holiday 'pack' as a gift during the christian holiday "Christmas". It was a great time, let me tell you. My wife, who gave it to me, and I spent a week of traveling around visiting family and friends, going to rock shows, drinking too much, and so on. The fact that she gave me this McSweeney's gift made it even more special, and throughout the holiday, I would look deep into her eyes and praise her for being such a special person. Now, you are wondering, "when is this going to get interesting"... and I understand. No one wants to read through a bunch of fluff only to find out that there was no point.

Ok, as promised, here is where it gets interesting : I never got it! Isn't that interesting?! Even more interesting is the fact that countless emails over a 2 month period haven't elicited a single response. None. nada. zilch. um, so, can you tell me if I will ever get to experience the joy of the McSweeneys' Holiday Fun Pack featuring Volume 6? If you can't, can you just credit our credit card, and I will walk up to Strand or where ever and buy it via that old school way?
Can you write me an email and just say, "listen lover. we got your other emails. now cut it out. and stop loitering in front of our building and hassling the neighbors."
