wham! Proof that not all my stuff is emo. Yesterday my fam and I sent a letter and a self adressed envelope up with some balloons. We're hoping to see how far they will go, but who knows right? Anyway I like balloons, and I hope that these ones in particular are found by someone who will throw them away so no animals get stuck in the strings.

The balloons were found in Middleport, NY! Pretty cool :D

How far away is that from your house? (where they were found?) That's a neat idea:D

well, I just mapquested it and I cant be sure of the exact distance because I dont know the exact address or even county (there are 2 different counties for Middleport, NY) where it landed. Anyhow from what I can tell the balloons traveled about 750 miles.

i love baloons. they just scream freedom. and this idea is wonderful, its crazy that they made it that far. i like this photo, but if you made it a bit more saturated, i think it would be alot stronger.
