Earlier tonight, my boyfriend and I walked into a bar and saw a huge table that was surrounded by people and covered with American flags. Balloons decorated with the stars and stripes were tied to at least a dozen chairs. I thought maybe there was a soccer game going on, especially when the whole bar later started chanting, "U S A! U S A!" We then learned that it was a surprise party for someone who became an American citizen today. #USA

This- 100% this. I was never a newborn person either. I never longed for going through that stage again like some people do.

Just in case cheerfulgreek stops by, "GO BLUE!!!"

I predict that Knight_shadow and I will be Hailing the Victors today, and Sparty will have a sad bus trip back to the Banks of the Red Cedar.

ETA: I really hope cheerfulgreek DOESN'T stop by. After the game, Coach Dantonio specifically said they'd be having the best bus ride back ever. Ugh.

Thrilled that our high school marching band and color guard swept the awards for their division at today's competition! First in auxiliary (color guard), first in percussion and first in band. We're a small group but this was our first week of competition and they were on fire...literally it was 94 today.
Everyone stayed hydrated and no one fainted!

Amazed that my son and I were able to drag ourselves there after watching Coldplay at the Rose Bowl last night. (Hubby and daughter chose to stay home today.) Wimps! LOL

I'm so glad I don't have to deal with the heat that both the south and California gets. I can manage it fine, but my band would have issues.

This morning, for the first time since I moved to New Orleans a couple of months ago, I stepped out of my apartment building, and immediately thought, "FUCK! IT'S COLD!"

It was maybe 65 degrees.

Did my blood really get that thin that quickly??

^ Um... XAntX, the pics are big black rectangles. Was that intentional?

Same thing happened this morning. "FUCK, IT'S COLD!"

When I moved down here, I brought my favorite letter sweatshirt. My coworkers may end up learning my affiliation before NPC Badge Day.

Yeah, it was a screencap from my phone. Just copied and pasted here.

The leasing office staff at my new apartment building in New Orleans puts together a social event once a month. The events for the past two months have been held at bars - "come by such-and-such bar and get a free drink".

The social event for October was held this evening. The building has a movie room, and they did a screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show.

LAMEST. SHOWING. EVAR.

NOBODY heckled the movie. Not one syllable.

Only about a dozen people showed up, and that's counting the leasing office staff. The building has probably 200+ apartments. I chatted with a couple of people before the movie started, and, between that and other conversations I overheard, I gathered that none of us was a virgin ... but nobody actually took the initiative to start off the audience participation. (I take my share of the blame for this. What can I say - I'm an introvert.)

I hope that they will go back to having social events at bars next month.

“There is, however, a somber point in the social outlook of Americans. Their sense of equality and human dignity is mainly limited to men of white skins. Even among these there are prejudices of which I as a Jew am clearly conscious; but they are unimportant in comparison with the attitude of the "Whites" toward their fellow-citizens of darker complexion, particularly toward Negroes. The more I feel an American, the more this situation pains me. I can escape the feeling of complicity in it only by speaking out…
Your ancestors dragged these black people from their homes by force; and in the white man's quest for wealth and an easy life they have been ruthlessly suppressed and exploited, degraded into slavery. The modern prejudice against Negroes is the result of the desire to maintain this unworthy condition.” - Albert Einstein, from the article “The Negro Problem”, January 1946 issue of Pageant Magazine
