Happy Independence Day to my peeps in the US of A, and a Happy Saturday to all! I tried to get a little cooperation from doll!Spike to commemorate the holiday, but I foolishly packed him away with the prop bottle of Jack Daniels last time I, er, used him. I had a hell of time getting him to realize which holiday explode-a-ganza we were celebrating; first he thought it was Cinco de Mayo, and then he jumped ahead to Bastille Day!

*sigh* Sometimes a gal's gotta settle. Y'all understand, right?

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY! I'm finally well enough to withstand a little abuse, so I'm off to beer-and-bbq land. Woohoo!

Happy 4th to you, yours and the drunken little fellow.

Same back atcha, Petzi. Have a great day! :D

I'm with Spike: this holiday is confusing, for all that it's one of my favorites, along with Thanksgiving. It's my dear old Dad's birthday, you see, so he grew up thinking the fuss was all for him, and he hasn't changed much. Still, it's always good for a party.

I'm off to the annual "commune with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and wacky neighbors" event. The deviled egg debacle is already over. The spangled Uncle Sam top hat for the birthday is in readiness. Communing with nature will just have to wait, even with all the purple mountains around here.

Keep all your fingers and toes attached, this lovely evening! Armless Angel excepted, of course. Thrill to the spectacle (and don't forget your spectacles). My favorite of the personal sized fireworks: sparklers and those smoky worm things.

I hope that Pa Reb had a fabulous birthday bash and enjoyed all the commotion. I always feel sorry for people with Christmas birthdays, but it would totally rock to have a b-day on the 4th.

We didn't have any plans, but my BFF invited us over for her wacky family gathering. Fireworks are illegal in the city limits, but she lives out in the lawless county. We competed with a thunderstorm to see who could produce the best pyrotechnics, and despite my continual fears that her idiot brother-in-law was going to blow his toe off with a Roman candle, everyone was still intact when we left at midnight.

I love the smoky worms, too! My mother always forbade them on the grounds that they stained the driveway, so I bought five boxes yesterday. *g*

To you too (maybe be careful what you pack with the package next time...the poor boy might go into a coma!).

Hope you had a good one, Kathleen!

Poor, drunken doll. It may be time to start thinking about rehab!

Heh-heh. It usually only takes me about 24 hours to find the loophole in any resolution, and I figured that re-captioning old doll photos doesn't really violate the spirit of my recent doll!fic prohibition.

Also? Your icon is killing me.

Happy 4 to you, too! Glad you're feeling better!
Jul. 5th, 2009 06:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Hope you had a good one, too!

Spike and my husband have too much in common this 4th. I mean they're both in loud Hawaiian shirts, of course!

Hope you and yours are enjoying the 'cue and beer as much as we are.

Truly, one cannot adequately celebrate the birth of a nation without a loud Hawaiian shirt. That said, I have to confess that I recaptioned a photo from last 4th of July (that doesn't violate my recent doll!fic prohibition, right?) and currently have no idea where doll!Spike's Hawaiian shirt has gone. I'm just so fond of him in his little white wifebeater that it seems a shame to dress him up again. *g*

We had a fabulous time, and no one blew a toe off with a Roman candle despite my dire predictions. Hope you guys had a blast, too!

Thanks for the greetings, such as they are, Spike and Mere.
Jul. 5th, 2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
Hope y'all had a good day! :D

Happy Fourth! Enjoy your beer & BBQ!

Thank you, birthday girl! Hope you had a good one.

You'll note that I recycled your birthday pic from last year for this one, because I've prohibited myself from producing any new doll!fic until I clean this hellhole of a house. However, no one said anything about recaptioning existing photos. *beams* I love loopholes.

Recaptioning loophole FTW.
