Happy Bastille Day!

It's Bastille Day, which marks the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789--their 4th of July.

And happy anniversary to Helen and Rachel, and happy birthday to Johanna!

I already went to an early Bastille Day ball last Friday.

Semi-random thoughts

  • It's weird listening to the 1812 Overture on the tiny speaker of my Droid phone.
  • This blog has received its 76,000th visitor.
  • My bank has lowered the interest rate on my mortgage. I received notice of the new amount one day after I made my payment. The extra money will go to reduce my principal--which means I'll have a smaller final payment to make--in 2032.
  • It seems Rush Limbaugh had his NY apartment a block from me. I don't remember ever seeing him in the supermarket, however.

From today's TFLN

(610): The online application for Mcdonald's said I could do incredible things there. Today I threw out shit filled underwear in the women's restroom and escorted a very drunk/high 42 year old man outside after he ordered a 5 dollar foot long and a bloody mary.

(985): Sonogram pictures belong on a fucking fridge...NOT FACEBOOK!!

(214): It was her 21st and she had one drink and fell asleep. I hate 90lb girls.

(908): Im at the zoo right now high out of my mind and feel as if the animals are watching me and Im the one in a cage.

(712): The police scanner is talking about you again....
