have a sparkly 4th, y'all

Happy 4th of July!!

We took this photo in France, and I think it does a pretty good job of summing up how I feel this year on the 4th of July. It's good to be an American! And I like the Obama as Superman motif. I can live with that.

We also came across this image of Obama:

I dig the shoes, Barack!

Last night, Tim and I had a lovely picnic in the park in Berkeley. We had the most amazing picnics in France, almost every day. And why not do that here too?

Picnics are fun! Drinking wine in a park is fun! Laying on a blanket in the grass is fun!

A note to the guy with the battery-powered-airplane-that-sounded-like-a-giant-mosquito-and-interrupted-the-mojo-of-our-picnic: Dude. Your airplane is dumb. And noisy. And rude. Perhaps if you lost the toy, you'd find a girl. Just sayin'.

I hope you all have loverly holidays. And that there's a lot of laughing! I'm pro-laughing!
