I don't have a grill, but I will be making & devouring a cheeseburger later!

Also, ice cream.

I plan on celebrating this great nation by... going to work.
Fun times.

The weather is currently raining on my parade. This means no fireworks, no grilling, no great American pastimes etc. Why do you hate America, Rain?

I celebrated by seeing Die Hard 4. I win.

Today I was carried by eagles to a baseball game and afterward everyone ate cheeseburgers and apple pie and then we all sang the national anthem while wrapped in American flags and then there were fireworks.

Ah, fireworks. To crib a page from the Simpsons Quote thread:

"Celebrate the independence of your nation by blowing up a small part of it."

My mother dragged our terriers outside for a walk after the fireworks started. Now they're traumatized. =/

Joey Chestnut won our great nation a major victory, by ingesting more horse entrails and anus dogs than the little Japanese kid that nearly had to have his jaw wired shut.

USA! USA!

I went to a parade earlier today, and then for dinner I had a hamburger and some fries. We didn't have any fireworks because it was raining, but we did watch some on TV. We'll blow stuff up tomorrow, I suppose.

I avoided all parades, ate grilled hot dogs, and watched fireworks put on by a country club in a nearby neighborhood. America: we like loud, bright things!

Finally started Super Paper Mario and finished the first two worlds. Then I did an epic 1 1/2 hour Advance Wars DS mission. I also ate pizza and fucked around on the internet.

Did stuff on the internet, worked-out (my mom and sister are getting into it now, family outings ftw!), and finally started my Starcraft write-up thing. Then I ran around with my dog. Finally, I came here. Oh yeah, I heard fireworks outside and read Sharkey's Oregon Trail feature. Do those count as celebrating?

I saw Transformers, went home, took a nap, woke up to discover the fireworks had been cancelled due to rain so I saw Transformers again. I also ate Taco Bell (a rare treat for a country dweller).

Nursed a broken tooth and played SMT Nocturne for twelve hours. Man, that's a fun game.

Watched Transformers, ate at a little Mexican joint with my dad, went through some paperwork, preped to move, watched Manos: The Hands of Fate, and played some Advance Wars DS.

I ate hot dogs and apple pie between swings on Wii Baseball that we had set up in the backyard.

Also, it was 104 degrees.

It was a good day, to be sure.

The one occasion I've been in America for independence day, I went to a Mexican restaurant and ate a burrito in Buffalo, NY. I don't think it's really much of a celebration for us British folks to participate in. Enjoy your nation, dorks, we didn't want it anyway.

I hung out with a Brit yesterday. She was pretty cool about it all.

Man, there's a lot of \adance Wars DS goin' on yesterday! I bought the game when it came out, and I still haven't finished the Campaign mode yet. I think I've got two missions left, but the last one wa sso exhausting, I don't think I've got the energy for the next yet, and I finished the last a month ago.

I'm just about to finish my third play-through of the Campaign. I haven't done it on Hard yet, but in between Campaign playthroughs I did a lot of the extra maps and tried to unlock all the alt-costumes. Until I put 120 hours into Pokemon: Pearl, Advance Wars DS was by far the biggest timesink I've had in the modern era. (I still think I must have put 400 hours into the original LoZ as an 8 year old).

I only picked it up again a couple days ago after several month's hiatus. I haven't finished the campaign yet: After I finally beat Crystal Calamity, a mission that wins at being one of the most frustrating things ever, I totally burned out it and never finished. I've been working now and again on leveling up various COs to wrap it up.

It's like the twenty-first or twenty-second mission. It's the one where you have to get to and fire off several missles to disable the shield on some sort of super-duper-ultra-mega cannon. If the enemy occupies one of the missle silos it's instant fail. GRAH!

I was on call for 30 hours at a state psychiatric hospital in Baltimore. Y'know, like in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, only with less Native Americans. Joy!

Yep, that's why I haven't beat Dual Strike, nor have any want to ever pick up the campaign again. That level is insanely retarded.

Ah, that's what burned me out, too. I believe we only have a couple missions left, good sir! But yeah, I'll finish it off some other time. I took one look at the next map, did a quick calculation, and decided it was going to require far too much time to do right now.

FUN FACT: I used to live about 30 minutes from the hospital One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was based on.
