Any plans for July 4 this year?

Post by Abdul Alhazred »

Nothing special for me this year, though I expect I'll visit a restaurant now that it's allowed.

Worst part is we're gonna run right out of Summer and we'll still be dealing with this pinheaded Covid shit because a certain government close to all our hearts had no goddamned clue how to deal with it in spite of lots of examples that actually worked.

Oh. And Fuck!

Same as every July 4

The pubs are due to reopen here. I'm staying in.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Why don't you all come round? I've got plenty of pickled eggs and black pudding. :)

I wanted to throw a party, but sparks & Pyrrho preferred working, too bad. :|

In other news the local Murican community kept quiet this year (Covid I presume). Good.

I must point out, I didn't prefer working. And as it ended up, both contractor asshats ended up cancelling when they realized it was the Fourth of fucking July!

Goddamned idiots.

Neighborhood was under intense bombardment late into the night, it's been calm now for several hours,
no casualties to report.

It was quiet here, some distant sounds of artillery. Fortunately Myakka City's strategic significance remains hidden.

White Trash Trailer Park Villa issued a statement about all kinds of shit recently which included a warning against the usual clap-trap of the 4th of July. As a result, it was remarkably quiet this year.
