In case you are at all interested.....the boss surprised us on Thursday by closing the office at 3pm. I was so busy planning out my day of procrastination that the few things I really needed to get done weren't done, so I ended up not leaving until 3:30. Wasn't that a bite in the ass?!?
It was reasonable weather here in NJ. A little damp and muggy. But not that bone-crushing, spirit-sapping heat that usually accompanies July 4th.
Tom and I also celebrated the 4th by having some fireworks ourselves, when we had an unhappy contretemps over why I am so bone idle that I can't take the garbage to the curb once in a while. I shed some tears and made a heartfelt albeit completely empty promise to try and be more helpful in the garbage removal area and things continued in a happier vein.
In honor of July 4th, we watched a PBS documentary called "The Revolution". I was amazed at how much I didn't know about our country's fight for independence. Which proves two points: 1) I didn't pay attention in American History class 2) Mr. Brennar was a suck-ass history teacher.
Another marathon weekend. This time it was Law & Order: SVU. So I spent an enjoyable afternoon watching Benson and Stabler and Munch and Finn and Capt. Cragen fight crime. There is not nearly enough of Stabler with his shirt off.
