The Irish pub I'm sitting in here in Vangroover hosted two of the members of the world's best bagpipe band, walking through and playing. And you know, all bagpipe songs sound the same in an enclosed space; like the sound a cat makes when you try to vacuum it.
@kappakappaspankme: Well, we have fireworks on Jules 4th, right? Also Burning Man. Not an official holiday, but nevertheless the premier North American opportunity to dance around an enormous bonfire, tribal-style. Sadly for me, I loathe all things hippie and I'll never make it there.
@snugbug: I am a card carrying member of the liberal elite and thus do not celebrate 04 July as I'm too un-Amerikkkan to do so. Besides, hot dogs have too many nitrates (like that's ever stopped me before).
Shame on me for not thinking of Burning Man, though. Then again, bajas really don't suit my frame.
If you think pouting and kicking a pebble is cute, you should see the starry eyed gaze that washes over me when I dream of Valborgsmässoafton, Gävle Julbock and any other excuse the Swedes use to burn things. #guyfawkesnight
