Still working on addresses

It turns out that updating the address book is kind of fun. I've gotten lots of responses to my emailed RsFI, including word from people with whom I haven't spoken in awhile. I found out my best friend from high school was stationed in Iceland for 4 years, for instance. Oh, and I found this picture of my first boyfriend, when I was checking his address.

I sped up Flar's part by printing names-only and suggesting "quintage:"
  • ? - Who is this?
  • d - Delete from the address book
  • i - Ignore, for purposes of Christmas cards
  • s - Send a card to verify address
  • w - Wait for me to get you information before you send a card

I suppose anyone who knows Flar would know that there were no ws on the list he returned me. Yes, his preferred information gatherer is in fact the United State Post Office. He also didn't ignore anyone, so next year I'll just ask for triage. ;)

I'm down to 40 records waiting for info, and the bulk of that will be coming from Mom, who just got back from China.
