I just spent two hours talking to my very good friend Juli. God damn is this girl punk rock. I don’t really have anything to say about this conversation. It was, in the end, the sort of long and winding conversation that drifts effortlessly from deeply important issues of spirituality and diversity to such inane and inappropriate topics as the hot girl who I work with (who makes me feel like a dirty old man). But it made me miss her in a completely happy sort of way, and moved to me write this quick little rant and sing her praises. Here’s to all her personal struggles and, more importantly, shining triumphs!
