I hope everyone had a nice 4th. Especially the people who do not celebrate it because they live in ForeignLand! ™
I ended up celebrating it the only way a true ‘Merican should – watching fireworks explode (in their usual celebration of Chinese culture) while standing in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart! The fact that we were standing near a fireworks dealer meant that every kid within a couple hundred feet was setting something off as well, and the smoke blanketed the entire area!
Another thing that is going to “blanket the entire area” is the screams that come from the results of the poll closing today: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/582723.html
Why? Because screams are the appropriate way of expressing yourself at the end of a poll! That, and uncontrolled sobbing!
