Today Is A National Holiday

July 5, 2010 at 8:00 am 8 comments

Today is the 5th of July. And since the 4th of July was on a Sunday, we get today off. Which means I’m not blogging. Why? Because you’re not reading.

I just wanted to stop in to say that the Ten on Tuesday questions are posted. And Stephen wanted to share this little poem with you.


Tired and hungry and too much beer,
The Fourth of July was only just here.
Let further our plans for the summer be set,
With left-over fireworks, hot-dogs, and why-not, croquet
So have a fantabulous, wonderful time
As you answer these Tuesday questions one plus nine!

    Who knew Stephen was such a poet? And we’re reading…you’re just not blogging πŸ˜‰ We’ll let it slide though.

    Has your readership gone down since the summer?

    I would have had to take a FINAL today/Monday (I don’t know what day it’s going to show up that I commented since it’s after Midnight but my computer thinks it’s only 11). How ridiculous is that. Not only would we not get off of classes if my professor wasn’t awesome, we would have had a comprehensive final. Sometimes I think A&M doesn’t realize we’re humans and not robots that can school all year long, although apparently I’m a robot who can. Anyways… I’m done now.
