Yesterday, there was much revelry. Drinks were imbibed. Copious amounts of food were consumed. Things made in China exploded in the air, dispersing in colorful expressions of American patriotism. It was awesome.
It also wore me out (this Independence Day in the middle of the week thing has got to go).

Rosetta Stone is amazing. I’m already picking up the nuances of the language. Wantaway Footballer is chock full of double-meanings and idiomatic phrases.
