For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed over the song, September in the Rain. If you’ve never heard it, watch the video, and your whole day will be better for a few minutes. Even though it doesn’t look like we’re getting any rain today, and even if the song theoretically takes place in springtime, it is a lovely song to listen to today all the same.
Welcome to September!
Even though this month signals the end of summer, I’m always excited for it. It is my birthday month, and the weather usually cools to perfect 70-80 degrees during the day And do I even have to mention the arrival of Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte? Just 5 more days until I can get one of them bad boys. It kind of makes the chill in the air a little more tolerable, and I can almost even get excited about things like scarves and colorful leaves and hayrides. Almost.
This September I’ve also decided to get with the times and start a twitter account. I don’t really understand twitter. There area all sorts of new terms and rules that I don’t yet know about, and I don’t yet see the complete usefulness of the whole thing.
What I do know is that I can stalk celebrities and pretend to have conversations with them. Hey @PrinceHarry, I’m watching you on TV right now! OMG @TaylorSwift. I LOVE your dress! Hey @KayneWest….still don’t like you even if you are friends with Jay-Z.
Also, just about any job in Marketing/PR/Communications looks for proficiency in social media, and in the future I don’t want to be overlooked because I refused to learn how to tweet.
So I’m pretty excited about taking my celebrity stalking to a whole new level, and twitter talking to people.
I literally started this twitter thing a couple of days ago, and I don’t have many followers (and I’m pretty sure one of the ones I have is a twitter porn star, but I haven’t figured out how to get someone to unfollow me, plus if I got them to unfollow, then I’d have even less followers). I also need good suggestions of celebrities, or companies, or people to follow, because Lord knows I don’t have enough social media distraction in my life.
You can follow me @lavenderparking.
I also decided to start the month with an updated “About the Lavenders” page.
In other news, HAPPY ALMOST LABOR DAY WEEKEND! I’ve seen people all over facebook bragging about how they are already on vacation, which obviously makes me jealous and sad, but I’m excited for the weekend all the same! And then I suppose I will have to accept the arrival of fall. At least I will have a pumpkin spice latte to help ease the pain!
