Monday just isn't a good follow up to these back to back events. We need to create a holiday today. Who's with me? What should we celebrate?

How about Sit-on-the-couch-editing-photos-and-watching-star-wars-marathon-in-jammies-order-takeout-for-dinner Day?

Cuz that's about all anyone's getting out of me today.

So much fun feeding two teenagers.

May 4th - Haymarket Square riot in Chicago, and in 1915 the start of the May 4th Movement, which gave us folks like Hu Shih, Lao She, and Mao Tse-tung.
