If I Stayed In The Woods, Would Anyone Notice? BRB, I’d Like To Return To My Vacation Tout Suite, SVP. 

Darlings! I am back online after a week of hiking and reading and sleeping and eating. I deleted Twitter off of my phone at the top of last week and hoo boy, was it the best decision I’ve made in a long time. It was really nice to unplug and slow down. 

I did get wind about Kamala Harris being chosen as Biden’s VP pick and screamed out loud when I found out. Holy hell, I had no idea how much the idea of Senator Harris staring down Pence on a debate stage would make me happy, but it sure did, and does. And as a reminder, in addition to being the first Black woman and first person of Indian descent to be on a major party ticket, she’s only one of four women to get on a presidential ticket. That’s right, in all these years, there have only been FOUR WOMEN (Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, Sarah Palin in 2008, Hillary Clinton in 2016, now Senator Harris) on a presidential ticket. She’ll make a spectacular VP and I am so freaking excited. LET’S DO THIS!

Speaking of which, there are only 89 days until the 2020 American Presidential election - what are YOU doing to help? This weekend, I spent time volunteering for Vote From Home 2020 doing outreach to swing states to remind voters to apply for their mail-in ballot early. 

TO THE INTERNET!

Y’all are great. Be kind to each other, and wear a darned mask!
