4th of July

We celebrated the 4th of July by basically not doing anything traditionally 4th of July, but instead just being excited we had a long weekend and the weather was great. We started the day by visiting the Denver Botanic Gardens.

Side note:  why do I always want to call these places botanical gardens, not botanic? My way sounds right.

It was, obviously, gorgeous.

Here are some photos from the day (the good ones are by Mike, the bad ones are my iPhone):

These are called bachelor buttons which makes me think of buttholes. You're welcome.

I want to live here so badly.

We of course decided these were hobbit holes and got super excited to walk through them.

After the gardens, we got lunch at Uber Sausage which was just ridiculous.

Those are smothered tater tots as your side. Yep.

Then we finished out an awesome day watching a soccer game with new friends at Maria Empanada. We won't talk about how Argentina did in the game...

Oh yeah and pho for dinner.

It was a very un-American 4th, but it was a great day and it makes up for the fact that the effing city fireworks went on for like 2 hours well past 11pm and we got no sleep. Hurumph.

In Case You Were Wondering How Old I Am

When we first moved here, Mike got us tickets to go see Geographer at a dive bar in the hipster part of town. And it was great, of course, but it also really drove home just how old I am now.

First, I had no idea what to wear. I do not understand these things the kids wear nowadays. Shorty shorts with dirty hair and booties? No, no sir. I cannot and will not rock that look. Also, side note, why does everyone seem like they're trying to look bad lately? Brush your hair and wear something that fits, Jesus.


So yeah, I just ended up wearing my weirdest shirt.

In case you can't tell, it is a Labyrinth shirt from Clashist and I love it.

I just realized that no one at that bar was old enough to have watched and loved Labyrinth. Sigh.

I also wore my glasses because my contacts don't make it past 10pm. Have I mentioned that I'm old?

But our old asses made it to the bar and got some sticky plastic cup beers and ogled the youngins and their outfits and the fact that they were all smoking weed like in public and indoors?? Is this a thing? And we made it through the first act and through most of Geographer and then went to bed SO HARD it wasn't funny.

So yeah, I'm old.

And apparently super uncool.

Mike had a blast though and he does not care what the kids think.

The end.
