The Fourth of Joooly

07.06.2005 · Posted in Friends

Two years ago I couldn’t wait until the 4th of July hit. Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde was coming to theatres! The trailer, which turned out to be just as good as the movie, but you wasted less time, featured Jennifer Coolidge touting, “You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want a hotdog, reeeeal bad.” I repeated that line for weeks, much to the agitation of my friends.

This year I was sick all weekend and missed the Gay Rodeo that Aaron attended. After three days spent on the couch watching sappy Lifetime movies I forced myself to venture out for the 4th. Jim and I hit three parties:


We met the cutest little puppy on the planet. Can’t remember its name for the life of me now.


This was at Bob’s house on the lake. Reminded me so much of my childhood home with the boat and dock.


Then it was off to Phillip and Stephen’s where we ran into Wanda Wisdom!


They’re actually expressing affection here.


At the end of the day we headed over to Sister Hoffner’s place for some spectacular views of the fireworks over the river.


Okay, so here’s the actual fireworks.

I’m getting kicked outta Spyhouse now, so gotta run. Go check out the galleries for the full she-bang.
