RE: Tony's birthday, surprise party!

Hi! If you're getting this, you're invited to Tony's 18th birthday party at Chilly Boulder on Tuesday, after classes and Reserves. It's a surprise, there's ice cream cake, and if you want to bring a present, that's cool--otherwise just show up and be ready to wish him a happy birthday!

Thanks!

Dinah

P.S. If you know someone who knows Tony but doesn't understand about e-mail? Pass this on. I'm trying to tell everyone I know who won't get this, but better safe than sorry!

[ooc: and all students are welcome to Tony's party on Tuesday]

Jack's Blackberry thing started beeping at him as he crossed the causeway back onto the island, and it wasn't the beep he'd learned meant it wanted to be attached to the wall via a cord. After hitting a few things, he finally got to the email application and saw a note waiting for him, evidently from Dinah.

This was another thing someone was going to need to explain to him. Well, at least he understood the keyboard ... sort of.

Jack! (Or Mr. Priest?),

You're welcome! And I'm glad you can make it. This is called an e-mail, for electronic mail. Convenient, isn't it? Much faster than normal mail. And less likely for Tony to find out about it accidentally.

Looking forward to seeing you at the party!

Dinah
