My birthday is upon us, which means it’s fall and that I have been sending many annoying emails to my parents about presents I want. Actually I just really want a Lego Volkswagen van. I mean, I’m no historian but I would say that this is a very reasonable present for a 27-year-old woman.
In addition to it being almost November, it is HOT in SF, so hot that I used my sock monkey ice pack given to me by my cousin Janeix for the first time. I also used a cooling mask as a headband. I also made hamentaschen. All very normal things to do in times of heat waves.
I have not been blogging in almost a month. This is due to:
2. watching all of Downton Abbey, Russian Dolls, Parks and Rec, The Playboy Club (RIP), and Pan Am
5. laughing at things my dad says
That said, I apologize. I am very impatient person and I apologize to people who wanted to hear my fascinating thoughts.
People said these things in regards to the loss of the blog and its reincarnation:
“I feel a deep sense of loss for Self Promotion. Julia is able to make the human situation comical and real at the same time.” President Obama
“Julix, why aren’t you blogging?” Bunny Alexander, longtime reader
“It has been difficult to report the news without Julia’s voice in the media.” NYTimes
“B and I are relieved that Julia is now blogging again. We could not imagine bringing a child into the world without her vision of America.” Jay-Z
I appreciate these kind words.
I now will leave you with a picture that I think sums up my feelings on America, the economy, and the 2012 election.
