Get ready for a little piece of

"Say Something Nice On the Internet Day"

craziness, you guys. This morning I was walking down Crosby Street after a meeting with

, when I spied my subject,

Freaky Friday

style with anyone in the world,

the world

, it would be Elin.

Say something nice about Julie @JR_Schott.
