    how many times do I have to ask you to shut the bathroom door??

    The fundamental flaw with your request is the assumption that there's any bathroom door LEFT

    Haven't heard any fireworks today. Usually people are setting them off all day.

    Well, I had a pleasant evening with one of my older brothers and the rest of my family, hanging out by the ohio river.
    My sister was starting to have a panic attack over the crowds so we missed the fireworks, but overall it was a good time.

    I hope ya'll have a pleasant weekend too!

    I've drank some beers and eaten some hit dogs, so I think I'm doing alright this 4th. I'm at my girlfriend's place right now, and the neighbor across the street spent $3k on fireworks this year. It's quite a show!

    My neighborhood sets off crazy amounts of fireworks. Some pretty potent stuff, too. From rooftops and from alleys and temporarily blocking off streets to do so.

    It's pretty fun, but there's never a great sense of where it's all coming from, or who is doing it, or when it begins and ends. Which isn't really a problem, but can be confusing at times.

    Weather was basically perfect today. Had a good picnic, then a cool down in the A/C, and then went off to see some fireworks. My dog is old enough to where she can't really hear fireworks, but she never really gave a fuck about those ever anyways, which was nice. They had a band out there playing in a bandstand right on the river that played mostly cover songs (like...they went from Thrift Shop to Billie Jean to Uptown Funk???) and then it took like, an hour to make it through traffic to get back home, but it was cool.

    It's nearly midnight here and they are still going off multiple times a minute.

    My buddy works at walmart and across the street from the parking lot there is a Key Bank branch and some dudes were setting off fireworks right next to it.

    That seemed ill advised, I'm not sure I'd take anything explosive that close to a bank ever.

    I survived today's reenactment! I am not even tired in the slightest so I guess my exercise has been working!

    Also my musket did not miss fire once, which is a personal best!

    We salute you sir!

    I took some photos of the fireworks show in downtown San Jose last night. A few of my favorites:

    Let me recount my 4th of July for all far & near.

    I awoke and, as mentioned, had a beer in the shower followed up by some eggs, toast & waffles in accompaniment of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I did this till the rest of my improv' comedy troupe arrived at my place. We had been invited to a wedding of a lady who worked a murder mystery show we'd done for an elderly organization, the Fraternal Order of Eagles. So we load up into a car and head to it. We figure as long as there is free liquor it'll be a solid excursion.

    We were wrong, we were so wrong.

    We arrived at the destination, which was someone's home in the boonies. We parked our car and as we made our way in it became very obvious, short of those actively in the wedding, we were dressed the most formal. The amount of camo-shorts & sports jerseys outnumbered buttoned shirts. So we get to the backyard and observe the ceremony structure. They have transformed the back deck as best they could and have installed a backdrop for the wedding. The backdrop is an American flag but with 15 stripes & 38 stars. We chat with some of the eagles as we wait for the ceremony to begin.

    And it starts and it is somewhat nice in its family-focused casual nature, until one of the bridesmaids near collapses. They sit her down and someone rushes to get her a bottle of water. She's deep into her pregnancy and they thought they'd just plop her in the 94 degree heat with little preparation.

    The ceremony continues.

    After its all done we take a look at our offerings. There is a kiddy pool filled with ice, housing what had to be ten to twelve different buckets of potato salad. Inside it is the only alcohol, a keg of Anheuser-Busch, which almost makes half my improv' troupe start screaming.

    So I start drinking as much of that keg as I can while we bump around talking with wedding guests.

    At one point we start observing this teenager... He.... He would almost leap from point to point like Gollum. He was wearing jorts and resembled Sid from Toy Story. He would hunker down near a bucket of cold soda cans and start biting into them, chewing on them.

    At this point we were like, "WE'RE LEAVING."

    So we leave and on the way home swing by a grocery store to pick up some whiskey & pizza. We get back to my place and cook some food while we play Mario Kart: Double Dash. After that we go outside and watch fireworks on the grass while discussing astrophysics.

    We head back inside and finish up the evening by watching Mortal Kombat and Kickboxer (staring Jean-Claude Van Damme).

    And that was possibly the best 4th of July to date.

    Update:

    Survived day two of the reenactment. It was basically a repeat of yesterday as the army at the time always celebrated it on the Sunday after the fourth.

    Musket again fired every single shot. I am very proud of that old sucker.

    Hilariously the entire rifle regiment misfired on one state. Just everyone taking aim and a series of clatches as none of them go off. Us infantry then casually step up and fire off an extra volley to cover for the rifles, then reload and fire again for our state before the rifles could even recover.

    Not to ruin your buzz but Jefferson was... kind of an asshole? Like, not that a ton of the founding fathers weren't but he really, really comes off as a hypocrite who should knew exactly why what he did was wrong.

    Besides, if you're looking for fine alcoholic beverages you go to Franklin, duh. Man knew how to party hard.
