This strip is brought to you by the kick-ass bluegrass mix my hometown sweetheart Emily sent me.
I'd like to take a moment to give a totally pre-pubescent, girly shout-out to "my girl," Emily. (There should be a "yo" in there somewhere.)
We talk a total of 5 or 6 hours on the phone per year, if we're lucky, and see each other MAYBE twice.
I miss her a bunch and wish I could spend more time with her, but she's in North Carolina getting her Masters and playing Ultimate Frisbee and doing exhausting 72-hour take-home exams (and hopefully taking advantage of the single life while she's still in college!).
And yet she STILL finds time to make little care packages for her friends.
The girl never ceases to amaze me with her talents, dedication, beauty, and huge heart. And furry legs, if she's gone camping for too long ;)
Love you and miss you, Em!
This is still my favorite picture of her and I together (because a shout-out isn't truly complete without a high school photo):
(Em's on the left... this was taken at least seven years ago!)
Alright, since maybe two of you actually know Emily personally, I guess I should give the rest of you something to read that won't bore you, right?
First things first, sorry for the long absence!
Unfortunately, that's going to be the norm for the next few weeks, as I'll be out-of-town for the next couple of weekends and working my arse off in between.
