I know who you're talking about but I have no idea what his name is. I call him Minister though. He looks albino, yes? He led us all on during my first year of Acen and became our group leader as we stayed up all night. He was like our sheperd.

If she has money (which I'm assuming this person does), then she can go to any gas station or bank and purchase a money order for like 25 cents.

Most wig stores have the option of checks or money orders, specifically I know that witchwigs and Amphigory both take money orders.
