I don't know what I've done to deserve it, but everyone was very nice to me yesterday. First off, there was a free concert by The Feelies and Sonic Youth (thank you River to River Festival). After the show, M. and J. and I went to our favorite Mexican restaurant, where they kept giving us free drinks (thank you, Maria). And after that, I went out and watched a very impressive fireworks display (thank you, Macy's). And I had the day off work.
I could get to like this 'celebrating American independence' stuff.
