Marcy and Emily… we’re missing our last chance for a Lost reunion!

    dude peanut butter pillows are such a big part of me and emily’s life! they’re my favorite cookie i’ve tried out of that book.

    i am a little sad that we couldn’t all watch the finale together, even though i hate lost now. i hope all of your questions got answered!!
