Happy 4th of July!

I hope you're seeing lots of fireworks.

I hope you have a day off from work.

I hope you've got some booze and something tasty to eat.

I hope that we get our soldiers back home, where they belong.

I hope you're having fun being happy or crabby at our country, and that you appreciate our freedom to do whichever we choose.

I hope if you go see the fireworks that you don't wear a big stupid 'Cat in the Hat' style hat. The kind that blocks everyone's view and forces us to hate you. Like this one:

P.S. These hats are never appropriate at any time. Throw them out or give them to a local "Hatless Cats" center. The 4th of July is NOT a fucking rave.

Let's be thankful we've got a country that will let us eat, drink and dissent! Happy Independence Day!

    I hope you had a good 4th too! (I actually had a pretty terrible one having spent in-the-middle-of-no-where-Indiana and I missed the Chicago fireworks because like crackheads they have them the DAY BEFORE the 4th (seriously, who does that?)) On the plus side, I did get to see some suburbia fireworks by standing on our food cooler, which was on the deck and then craning my neck a certain way to see through the trees. *nods at herself*

    How was everyone elses 4th of July?

    Happy 4th! I'm all about a country that allows you to eat, drink, and be in dissent.

    Woo! Happy July 5th!!

    Browen, in Chicago Suburbia, we have them on the day before. Even further out toward Rockford, they had them TWO days before. Then, last night on the 4th, our whole freakin neighborhood seemed to be shooting them off.

    I descending from my dissention, though.

    I just realized that the midnight fireworks didn't wake me up last night. I did watch the Boston show on tv, though. Much better than the Hillary Duff thing. I avoided that like the plague.

    Mine was good, except for being abandoned by my family in a restaurant bathroom.

    I was JUST saying to someone, "The 4th of July is not a fucking RAVE!" What's wrong with people, Plum?!

    I enjoyed my 4th until some young people who say they know the landlord started wandering around on the roof over my apartment. It was raining so I hoped that'd stop everything. Nope, not gonna happen. I was probably awake until 1:00 am (usual bedtime on a work-night 9:30) because after the fireworks the people in the next apartment building were out on the street being very noisy. Wish I could've had this morning off when the old alarm rang. Whoever decided we needed to celebrate Independence Day with "bombs" bursting in air anyway? :-)

    Whoa, sorry for the rant. :-) I hope you had a great 4th! And, yay for being able to dissent.

    I live under a rock. Didnt go to the fireworks, then they got cancelled due to thunderstorms. Then I felt less guilty for not going. Just not my cup of tea to go downtown, full of non parking spaces to find a space 5 miles away from where you need to be, watch the whole 10 minutes of fireworks, and take over an hour to get back to your house thats closer to them than you parked.

    Amen, sister.

    Browen - Some cities like to have them the day before so they don't have to pay the police they need for crowds overtime. Cheap bastards.

    Kilowatthour- Congrats on starting pediatrics (watch out for the parents!).

    Nilbo- Careful. If you dissent to loudly, the Bush regime will steal your first born. Oh wait, you're in Canada. You're safe. Lucky thing.

    CK- So technically you can see fireworks on three different days? You lucky bastard!

    MRTL- What happens with the fireworks in Boston? Hilary Duff can kiss the fattest part of my ass. That's all.

    Weetzie- Yay for little munchkins! Yay for Family guy. Yay for tasty things! (Can I come to your house next year?)

    Susie- Ah, girl. What a memory you have! I guess the guy with the hat considers Neil Diamond's 'Coming to America' as rave music. Takes all kinds.

    Squirl- I like fireworks, but not afterthe city noise ordinance has gone into effect. Poor thing. Feel free to rant!

    Lawbrat and Misfit- PREACH

    I'm pretty sure we don't have a local catless hats center.

    Good thing I don't have one of those stupid hats, huh?
