Happy Independence Day!

Found a great quote from halcyon_shift on metaquotes: “Happy Independence Day, America. No nation on Earth could live up to the ideals you've aimed for; thank you for trying anyway.”

I spent four lovely days in Tampa, during which I saw many family members, my father’s retirement ceremony and new RV, Constantine and Memoirs of a Geisha (on DVD), and Superman Returns (in IMAX 3-D). Flew back on Sunday, spent Monday making Auntie Pat’s Cheese and Onion Enchiladas (AKA “the Firelogs”), and celebrated the Fourth at tacologic and alcestis’s awesome rooftop BBQ-and-fireworks-viewing party.

I will write about the preceding in greater detail, but not now; I’m tiddly and in need of a good night’s sleep, so that I will be properly rested when I resume the Quest for Gainful and Satisfying Employment on the morrow.
