o say, do you think that i will be able to see?

Just wanted to write a quick note wishing everyone in the states a happy 4th! Today should be an exciting, or at the very least an interesting day, because for the first time in all the years I have lived adjacent to the nation's capital I am going to attempt to watch the concert at the capitol and fireworks on the mall with some friends. So here's to a day of jostling crowds, security checks, bugs, excessive amounts of sun screen, the potentiality that we may get there too late to find a good spot, and what will hopefully be a great adventure.

Clip of the Day


  1. I've heard that the D.C. fireworks are an experience like no other. Your thoughts?

  2. rhette butler-the whole experience was so much fun!! as great as the fireworks were, i'm glad we decided to see the stage show and sacrifice the better fireworks seats because it led to witnessing epic performances by aretha franklin and barry manilow among others. part of the fun (for the fireworks, at least. and the concert) is being there with everyone, but for fireworks i think the best seat, aside from the shared spirit, is still at home. i'd definitely go to the concert again.
