i'm pretty sure i'm not supposed to be working today as it is independence day in the US, but here i am anyway. frankly, i'm not sure the whole independence thing is working out, so it's difficult to get excited about the holiday. after 230 years of it we end up with our worst government ever.
still, i will celebrate. i'm taking the afternoon off to see "war of the worlds" with scientologist superstar tom cruise. i hope i don't end up rooting for the aliens.
