a musical salute

there's something about a singing penguin in a periwig that says AMERICA, wouldn't you agree?

So far my big plans for the 4th have included one (soon to be two) bouts of concentrated Sgt. Pepper cleaning (the CD is only 39 minutes long. I clean like my hair is on fire the whole time that it plays and then I can quit -- it's surprisingly effective). I plan to follow this up with sewing (hooray! I am zooming through my pile of projects, which is nice for a change), and fireworks as long as it doesn't rain. If it does rain, I will probably skip them. The great thing about being at this particular latitude is that I don't have to decide until about 9pm!

In other news, I just watched The Great McGinty and have decided that it would be a great double feature with Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. Between them you get a nice mix of earnest optimism and breezy cynical corruption -- two sides of the American political coin, and I think good to keep in mind as we barrel into election season.

  1. Tee hee... This just cements my growing belief that I REALLY need to avail myself of the Muppet Show DVD collection. Happy 4th!

  2. Hee hee! YES YOU DO! I just checked out season something or another to someone today. Maybe we should have a Muppet Show Viewing Club.
