Oh yeah, it’s Memorial Day Weekend.
I can’t remember the last time I went to some far away place to celebrate Memorial Day. Perhaps it’s because I’ve become slightly misanthropic as the years pile on and night life seems less appealing. Well I’m not THAT terrible but I’m always one for taking it easy when I have limited time off. Maybe I’ll go against the grain one of these days and try a weekend getaway if money allows it. But I’m a much bigger fan of five plus day vacation movement. Too bad my wallet never agrees with me on that sentiment.
Heck I’m from Jersey and I’ve never made the trek down the shore just to enjoy the weekend. When it comes to Memorial Day, much like 4th of July, have someone in the family (or friends) set up a good ‘ol fashioned barbecue in NJ or NY not too far from home and I’m good. You get to enjoy the day (weather permitting,) catch up with people you like to be around, eat tons of food and avoid spending tons of time on the road since the holiday rush takes over 80, 280, 287, the Parkway and everything in between.
Well at least the summer is unofficially here and I’m ready for some new anthems for the season. I plan on blasting Big Boi’s “Shutterbug” over the weekend since it’s been a great summer song since March. Weird, I know. But it knocks and he got me excited for his album. Might as well wrap it up and post the video.
Well it looks like the video got taken down. This will have to do for now.
