Happy Independence Day*, America! I’m spending today alone in our air conditioned condo watching John Adams on HBO because I can’t abandon my grownup commitments for later this week and I don’t want to deal with the heat or hoards of tourists watching the fireworks at Navy Pier! FUCK YEAH, FREEDOM!
(*My 16-year-old sister would like to remind you that the US didn’t actually become independent today; we just declared our intentions. But still.)
