Ok, so unfortunately, I didn’t have a ton of time to make potato pancakes this weekend. I know. So lame. I’m just as bummed as you are. I was simply too busy. Again, I KNOW. SO LAME.
I have been avoiding blogging all week because there is some news that I couldn’t quite find a way to tell all you suckers. It’s been quite the whirlwind of a week. So, following the rubric of a masterfully crafted pattern by yours truly for the past 20 years, when something is too hard for me to put into words, I make Kaitlin do it. She’s a big fan of jargon. So much jargon, in fact, that she often uses her word wizardry to outsmart, outwit and outplay people on a daily basis– especially to win fights against verbally challenged (and easily befuddled and bamboozled little sister).
Take it away, Kaits!
About two weeks ago there was some misinformation posted on this blog. Actually, not as much misinformation as something that is now false due to new information. Due to the integrity of the blogger and out of respect for the Bushka in the City blog readers, we will now correct the unintentional inaccuracies in order to set the record straight. The following is as accurate an account as I can give.
Constantly Seeking Truth,Kaitlin Patton– Copy Editor, Bushka in the City
If one is an avid reader of Bushka in the City, as am I, you will likely recall a posting entitled, “Whomp” making an appearance on the blogroll on March 29, 2012 at 9:18 PM, EDT. Many of us dedicated readers were saddened to read of the author’s downcast spirit in light of losing the opportunity to intern at Marc Jacobs for this upcoming summer. It was communicated in that blog that the internship had become an unlikely reality due to scheduling conflicts. The author, Julia, conjectured that the denial of the internship due to these scheduling conflicts “was just a nice and easy way of saying they didn’t want (her) without actually saying they didn’t want (her).” I, like many other readers, knew that this was complete hog-wash and poppycock, but held our tongues to revel in the melancholy of the situation as a sign of fidelity to our favorite blog-wrier. It was commonly shared across the Bushka in the City Reader’s universe that Marc Jacobs was missing out on an amazingly talented person, but that Julia would excel in whatever came her way.
Everything up to this point was communicated in truth, however, due to the following change in the course of events, we must let you know what has occurred since this point. On Thursday April 12, I received a phone call from Julia while at the café Peach’s in Aspen, CO. Through the duration of this phone call the following information was gained:
JULIA FREAKING GOT THE INTERNSHIP WITH MARC JACOBS.
It appears that after believing the internship was an impossibility, Julia was contacted by a woman at Marc Jacobs for an interview. The woman communicated that although the scheduling was the original reason of the declination, Marc Jacobs would like to see if some shred of possibility remained for Julia to join them this summer in New York City, New York. The representative asked for an interview, which went swimmingly. After the passing of time, Julia was again contacted and asked to intern for Marc Jacobs for the summer of 2012. Julia accepted.
Again, we are so sorry for the sadness that may have been garnered from reading the original posting, “Whomp”. We hope that this redaction can allow you to again trust us in the future. But, really, we all knew that the author’s opinion on the denial of the internship originally was informed by lies from the pit of hell anyway. Thank you for your time and your faithful readership.
Did you understand all that? Because, I’m gonna be honest, I had to re-read a couple of sentences a few times… and it’s about something that happened to me… so…
In case you didn’t, let me wrap this lady up by hitting the main points:
