The end of an era

The full text of a letter I just sealed and am going to mail off tomorrow:

Dear Commissioner Tartaglione,

I hereby resign my position as Judge of Election in Philadelphia's [number] ward, [number] division, effective immediately. I am resigning because I intend to move out of the division before the November elections.

I greatly appreciate the opportunity to help perform the important civic duty of ensuring fair elections, and I hope I have the chance to do so again in the future.


Joshua [my last name]

August of Awesomeness, version 5

Again starting early, and, as promised last year, featuring for the first time ever the two-week mid-August brain-breaking socially-overloaded emotion-fucking-with crazy-transition-ful Awesomeness Of A Lifetime, so titled because it may not be survivable:
