    And people are starting to blow shit up around my hood. Fortunately, Stewie is unfazed by it.

    (Fuck you, WordPress, unfazed is too a word.)

      They have been blowing shit up in my hood for 3 hours or more. It is almost 11:00 pm EST and they are going strong. The worst thing about this is it is grown ass men, not kids, making all of this noise.

    Happy 4th, Nerdy. Thanks for the perfect ending to the day. Laughter heals all kinds of aches and pains and you brought it on tonight. Love it.

    Damn, busy posting on the last thread while everyone was over here having a laugh.

    My faves:

    Dawn just told Grandma she’s vegetarian now. Grandma: “I got some chicken in the freezer. You still eat chicken, right?”


    Your uncle who dropped out of vacation bible school is taking way too long to bless the food.

    Happy 4th everyone!

      What makes it even more hilarious is that it’s so true. Some people were even tweeting, “OMG, this is happening right now at the family get together.” Black Twitter is so awesome!

      Happy 4th, MadameSoph! 🙂

    Bringing these next two over from their lonely spot at the end of the last thread 🙂 :

    Happy 4th TOD!

    I just finished watching the President’s Eulogy of Rev. Pinckney. I have been working non-stop since I returned from Italy and I wanted to watch it when wasn’t in a rush. I am so glad I waited. I was so very moved and so, so, very proud to be an American under this amazing, once-in-a-lifetime President. I was calling out in response and clapping, happy to have my neighbors hear me, and so many times smiling to myself and saying “He said it!!!” in response to hearing him speak more than one truth.

    Now I’m going to make some cacio e pepe (spaghetti with cheese and pepper…mmmm 🙂 ) and watch the David Attenborough interview, thanks to TOD! (No fireworks this year, I want to be home with the kitties when the noise starts; they were so traumatized by the shitty cat sitter and are just now getting back to normal).

    Anyway, thank you so much for everything Chips, Nerdy, LL, AMK, Dudette, Mighty Pamela, jojothecat and everyone else here at TOD! This past week of Presidential amazingness has been that much more enjoyable because of you all! >^..^<

    By the way, maybe someone already posted this, but last night I watched this interesting and fun interview with Bree Newsome on the Nightly Show. She’s so cool and so pretty in addition to being a superhero! The way she says she wasn’t scared when she was climbing the pole is amazing to me. She was soooo brave! When you consider how people have been shot for just walking down the street, this was no small act of bravery; it was a huge one:

    Any lurkers who may not like the language in this, sorry. (Kinda reminds me of The Obama Translator standing behind President Obama when he recently addressed the heckler. Ha.)

    But this is my FAVORITE cookout story from Eddie Murphy, from way back, how his father claims the house, and I can’t believe I found it. Damn this wine brings clarity.

      Happy 4th, all!

      This picture makes me think of next year, when Malia turns 18, and it’ll be the last one under President Obama’s presidency. We all have to promise to meet here, with champagne/sparkling wine in hand, for that one!

    Ok, kids tables.

    Latinos do not have kids’ tables. We all eat mixed up. So imagine my surprise when I moved out to L.A. and my brother’s white in-laws sat me at a kids’ table. I was NOT happy. That shit wasn’t cutting it with me.

      The adults want to be able to have grown-up talk without the kids listening. Also, the kids are free to make a mess when they are sitting together at their own table. Usually an older cousin (a young teen) will get stuck refereeing the little brats. However, most kids learn early that if they are quiet, they can sneak closer to the adult table (some even sit under it) to hear the grown-up talk.

      Honestly, I had lots of cousins…we cracked ourselves up at the kids table…we definitely had way more fun at the kid’s table than the adults table….good times:)
