Five Years and Counting

Happy Fourth of July.

I’ve officially been in Krautland for five years.  Yay.  Can you feel my excitement?

Jeff called this morning to wish Mim and I a Happy Fourth.  He asked me how I felt being in a country not celebrating my independence and all I could think about was how appropriate that question was.  I really do want to move back to SF.  I miss my family. I miss my dad.  I miss my hair guy.

In other news, Mim flew in last night.  I was so concerned in making the red room into a perfect guest room I forgot to check which airline she was flying in on.  A brilliant move on my part.  Didn’t even occur to me until Sparky asked which terminal as we entered the airport round-abouts.  Good thing she had a cell phone.

She and I are celebrating by doing ab-so-lute-ly nothing all day.  When Sparky gets home, he and I are going to a concert and that should be very nice.  He got us great seats.  I might just wear a mini-skirt for the guy.

Mim will skip the concert and play with the cats, watch TV and do laundry.  It only takes four hours a load so she should be done by tomorrow.

Have a good one, American Expats.  Remember the times when America was great.  We’ve only had Bush in office for 8 years.  That doesn’t erase all the good stuff.  We just celebrated the Berlin Airlift and that was goddamned brilliant and awesome and really, so American.

  1. Um, if it makes you feel any better, my town doesn’t have fireworks or any kind of independence day celebration. We have a month-long celebration of Cinco de Mayo, but no July 4th celebration.

    I’m celebrating anyway! And you should too! Hope you have a good one!
