"Julia" Mug

When I was growing up, I could NEVER find any personalized anything with the name "Julia" on it. Apparently the world was full of "Julies" and never a Julia was considered. "Julie" is not my name but I had to suffer (oh yes, suffer) through mini metal bike license plates and souvenir mugs or t-shirts that said only "Julie". To this day, when I am in some tourist trap, I still absently look at the rows of names and expect to see and always find "Julie."

Until now.

There I was in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum gift shop. A huge rack of mugs faced me. I knew not to bother looking for my name and instead looked for "Kurt." There was no "Kurt" of any kind. Then I glanced over to the Js and saw this:


Holy cow. After 35 years, there it was.

Did I buy it? No. I'm over the pain of having the wrong name tag growing up. So just knowing that tag is out there is enough.

Thank you NASM!


How did they not have "Kurt" of any kind??? Were they out?? What the hell???

And I LOVE the name "Julia", always have since it first graced my ears...

Hey, I wanted to let you and Kurt know that I'm throwing a Halloween Blogger Party up here in Santa Barbara on Saturday, Oct. 27th. We're having it in a BEAUTIFUL Spanish barn. Food and drink and music along with lighting, fog, blah, blah, blah will be provided for dancing. I'm gay, remember? We throw kick-ass parties. It's in the manual somewhere. If headquarters finds out that we threw a lame party, forget's all over in gay town. We have to wear last season's shoes or something.

Anyway, I'd love it if you guys can come. Costumes are optional, but strongly encouraged. At least hats, wigs, assless chaps, you know, the usual.

I'll be gathering info soon on nearby hotels, directions, etc. So, think about it and let me know! We'd love to see Julia and Kurt's REAL mugs there....stupid joke, sorry.
Did they have a "Nini" cup? :)
