Discuss what you'll be doing for our country's birthday! Happy Forth folks!
Going to watch the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Championship on TV. But this year those assholes at ESPN aren't playing it until 3PM, because of stupid tennis. Argh!
Also, eating food, playing video games with other people, other things, etc. But the Hot Dog Championship is the centerpiece. Been watching for years! This year Joey Chestnut is going to go for his sixth straight championship!
Cursing that you colonials were allowed to go off into the world alone a good 100 years before you'd be made into proper sensible citizens under the influence of the glorious British Empire.
No, not really. My Wednesday will consist of catching up on some podcasts as there's usually a glut that come out on Tuesdays, watching more of The West Wing, reading more of my big Rebus: The St Leonard's Years collection (it's only 3 books & 1 of them was before DI Rebus moved to St Leonard's. Basically it's books 4,5 & 6 in the Rebus series by Ian Rankin). At some point I imagine I will listen to some Velvet Underground to celebrate Americas finest ever achievement in the arts. But otherwise it's a pretty nondescript Wednesday here in Scotland. Oh, there's the Copa Libertadores final 2nd leg on in the middle of the night, Boca Juniors vs Corinthians.
Same as every other day. The only special day in July is the 1st. Nothing special about the 4th. Just another Wednesday. Ohhhh... Just realized that tomorrow will probably be a slow day since it's a yankee holiday. I do tech support for HTC phones and most of the calls we get come from the US so it will hopefully be nice and slow. Though from past times working on Holidays we tend to get more angry douche bag calls then normal.
I am in that weird transitional phase between college and the real world, wherein all my friends are scattered across the country/globe as they enjoy the 4th with their family, and somehow my family went off for vacation and left my unemployed self to watch over the family business. So basically, TF2.
Aside from the fact I don't really care for celebrating July 4th, my family is barbecuing and setting off fire works. Also, I don't really think a lot of people are celebrating because of our independence, but rather, finding an excuse to blow shit up.
