Despite my fanaticism for the written word — believe it or not, it wasn’t the promise of millions that lured me in to journalism — and my hyperconsumption of paper towels and cups, I’m really a paperless sort of girl: a Flash-y “gobble gobble” is emailed out on Thanksgiving, a link to my website lets relatives know what I’m up to, and my most personable “Thank you”s arrive in mailboxes of cell phones.

Perhaps I’ll snail mail her the URL instead.
