I was going for a Fourth of July theme this week, but this is pretty much what you get right now when you Google "Independence Day". That, and showtimes for the new movie, Resurgence. Hope you all have some fun plans and are able to spend time with your friends and family this upcoming weekend! To our neighbors in the north, please send us some REAL fireworks!!
And it turns out that we should be sending some fireworks across the pond to our friends in Great Britain, as they declared their very first Independence Day from the European Union on June 23rd. Britain's Brexit and newfound independence is certainly a big deal right now, but like the critics' reviews from the new movie; the original Independence Day still reigns superior! #MURICA
Lastly, I came into work this morning and there was a dead mouse at my desk. Not about to post any photos but I thought to myself, "How am I supposed to write HUMPDAY under these conditions?" Talk about a first world problem...
Alright, I'll post one photo so you can see the horror I walked into today. But I warn you, this image contains graphic content. Only click if you want to see:
