i wonder if the post office is still open. i wonder if they have boxes for cheap (since i forgot the nice ones i found at work with funny value village things written all over them under a ladder). jenn just told me why raffles are cheaper than pancakes, and we agree that pilates is inscrutible. i have to mail out a form, which means i have to print it somewhere, which means i get to use my little keychain usb drive. that thing has not been as astoundingly convenient and useful as i had hoped.

If you still are in need of boxes, you can ORDER them online from the Post Office
FOR FREE. [*Do a search for "priority boxes" as they don't seem to appear in any of the menu categories*] They'll deliver them to you for free as well. :) You can get as many as you want, in numerous sizes.
The catch is that they're Priority Mail boxes, so you're supposed to use (the often more expensive) Priority shipping in order to use the boxes.
HOWEVER if you are clever enough and have tape, you can disassemble the boxes at the glue seam and fold them over backwards (essentially "turning them inside out"). Magically, they are plain brown boxes!
I think doing that is technically minorly illegal. But, just pretend it isn't and do it anyway. They won't be able to tell unless they rip it open and see the print on the inside.
