My name is Joy.
I live in Maine.
I've never met an exclamation mark I didn't like.
Sometimes I host impromptu dance-offs in the middle of the street.

I’m going to the Democratic National Convention this year! Which, is, exciting and tiring and requires me to stock pile coconut water. This is my third convention so I’m both a pro at this and also, like, insanely old.
One of the issues with convention is that you have to balance the work look with this HOLY HELL IT IS SO HOT look with the going to all the parties look with the patriotic look. And that is difficult to do.
I have about three outfits that I feel really good about. They are all red and not blue so I am totally going to end up getting thrown out of any of the good parties, but you know what, I look good in red. Republicans don’t own red! I also like elephants! And elephants are so hot right now! You can get elephants on everything! So chic wearing an elephant necklace! Do I want to wear a donkey around my neck? No, of course not. So when I show up to the DGA’s late night (the DGA throws the best parties) wearing a red dress with an elephant necklace I am totally going to get thrown out of the party by the cast of The West Wing (this will happen). Political problems, I have them all. I am basically just like Michelle Obama in this way.
I’m now at the stage of convention planning/shopping where I find this adorable and perfect jcrew dress but it is black and unpatriotic and I am sitting on a conference call screaming at jcrew for denying me color choices! Jcrew! Denying choice! Just like the Congressional Republicans!
