What’s with all the clouds?

For all the time I’ve been here it’s been cloudy like once. Maybe twice. And then there was yesterday.

We celebrated the holiday over at the ever-hospitable Jeff and Anne’s house down at the beach. It was lovely but it would have been so much more lovely had the sun been shining. It was wall-to-wall overcast. We went out to the beach for a bit to throw the Frisbee and kick the soccer ball around a bit but it felt like we were Long Island or something. I felt like we should have been crabbing.

Fortunately, the sun went down and the clouds cleared a little bit for the fireworks which we watched from a rooftop in Venice that, having never seen it from 6 floors up, looked a lot like Baghdad when fireworks were coming from every conceivable place. The day was filled with was lots of eating and drinking and bike riding and Grant getting pushed in the pool by some fat, crazy chick. And for some reason, Grant and I felt it necessary to make a light night ride to In n’ Out burger after having eaten gobs of food all day. Not sure why we felt the need to eat yet again, but it was fun.

Work this morning was like a cruel joke.

How was the weather today, you ask? Sunny and beautiful.

Here’s looking forward to an Independence Day/half-birthday that’s not on a Wednesday.
