Happy Memorial Day!

So I was first woken up by the cats at 5AM this morning as they decided to have a wrasslin' match on my head. Then about an hour later, as I had just fallen back asleep, my nephew started texting me using his mother's phone. Important stuff like "Your butt smells". Then the cats started up again.  This went on for a couple of hours.

I finally was able to fall back asleep when our neighbor began shooting his cannon...yes, his cannon...over the harbor in remembrance of the men and women who served this country and lost their lives.  They were blanks, in case you were wondering.  Loud-as-fuck blanks.

And here I thought Memorial Day meant you could sleep in late on a Monday in early Summer.

Happy fucking Memorial Day!

UPDATE - What the fuck?  I never thought I would see the day that the Yankees would wear red caps.  This was mandated by MLB, by the way.  Every team is wearing red caps today.  No way Team Steinbrenner makes this choice on their own.  Feh.
"It's just one of those days when you don't wanna wake up.  Everything is fucked, everybody sucks, you don't really know why but you wanna justify ripping someone's head off!" - Fred Durst


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Kittens and texting and cannons, oh my!

Hey, if a guy can't shoot off his cannon, what kind of holiday is it ???

Verdant Earl said...

Heff - I just wished he waited another hour or so is all. Actually, I thought it was kinda cool. Just too early.

Hahahaha, neighbor shooting a cannon... are you sure you're not living in some weird 70s TV sitcom. That plot line was once in Green Acres, I think.

Verdant Earl said...

Faiqa - Oh, I'm positive that I'm living in some weird 70's sitcom. Just not sure which one. All in the Family is a strong contender at this point.

Those hats suck almost as much as Fred Durst.

Verdant Earl said...

Holly - it's a butt, of course.

Savannah - Drinking might have helped.

Limpy - Nothing sucks as much as Fred Durst.
