I was just facebook stalking someone I used to know.
And I was wondering what she was up to. I figured out that she had spent her last semester abroad in Europe, but there weren’t really any pictures of her doing more than sightseeing. And I thought, “If I had spent that much time abroad, chances are I’d be drinking in most of my pictures.” Then I remembered I had spent that much time abroad, and I’m drinking in most of my pictures.
I’ll be gone for about 10 weeks. I’ll actually be home for a couple days in about a week, but I don’t really count that. And I want to put this here anyways.

Letters are super fun though. I’ll even write you back! Srsly!

Oh, except for the character choice of Jake Donaghy having exceptionally saggy balls, to which Herschel committed fully. The best part of this scene was that it ended with a whip pan.
Next to Jack Donaghy and Lucille Bluth, Ron Swanson is my favorite television character of all time. There is much to admire about Ron: his intense libertarianism, his willingness to try cornrows, his support of Leslie, that time he gave a small child a landmine, and, of course, his secret life…
