Happy First of July!

Coney Island #1

Later this weekend we'll celebrate our nation's freedom.

But today I'm celebrating my own personal freedom: from the tyranny of the beige cubicle.  When I arrived to said cubicle yesterday morning, I found a waiting voice mail from the Firm's CEO, wishing us all a pleasant 4-day weekend.

"4-day weekend!?" I thought. "This is news to me!"

(It shouldn't have been.  The announcement that today would be an extra day off was made back in May, but I somehow missed it.)

What to do with this sudden freedom?  Normally I'd head to the beach, but I was just there. So I puttered around a bit this morning - doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen, answering emails - wondering what to do with my free self.  

Until I just decided - you know what?  Screw it.1  Like Frankie & Annette, I'm going back to the beach.

Have a happy holiday weekend, y'all.  Make George Washington proud with your freedomizing.  I'll be doing my part down by the ocean.

1 Pardon my french.

Woohoo! Glad to hear you're celebrating in a big way (and with an absence of work)!

Oo la la! A comment from Paris, France! This blog just got a whole lot fancier. (PS - I had a Dr Pepper Slurpee in your/Blake's honor the other day.) (PPS - Viva la France!)
