Unfortunately, you're wrong there. She's only going to get more fanmail with each passing month.
I wrote her a little letter, oh, about two, maybe two and half years ago, and she actually wrote me a hand-written note back (and signed a picture). I don't think anyone today would have any such luck. She gets tons of fanmail, I'm sure. Thousands.
Anyway, just give it a shot. You never know. *Insert cliched encouragement comment here*
