    Not really, but we were going to have our fireworks shindig yesterday (for various reasons) but we got stormed out.

    Happy 4th to you, too!

    I would go outside, but we are expecting a high of 118 today, so I think I’ll stay in where it’s cool.

    I’m spending the forth teaching my mom about the computer. At this point I think it would need to be surgically removed anyway.

    My day of independence is the first of January, or third of march, or 11th of December, good old Australia! Not everyone lives in USA!

    I spent the morning sleeping and the afternoon having sex with my girlfriend. God bless America! And Canada, too – my girlfriend’s Canadian.
