Happy Independence Day, my homeland!!  
I hope that everyone back in America had a great independence day. When I was younger, it was honestly one of the days of the year that I looked forward to. Back in my high school days and just after, Rachel and I used to gather our friends and stake a spot in Columbia park along the river and watch the fireworks in a big group. It was one of my favorite times of the year. I really miss those kinds of days. The lazy, fun days that you spend with friends with not a care in the world. And then there's the going crazy with glowsticks wound up in our hair and having competitions over whom can "ooh" and "ahh" over the fireworks the most. =^-^= Ah, those are the days. I guess you could say that I'm pretty homesick nowadays.

So, that in mind, I thought... 'I'm going to draw a picture for the 4th of July!' I, naturally, promptly concluded that it should be some character naked wrapped in an American flag. You'd have to understand my brain far better than I do to even begin to understand why. So I asked my roomies Ami and Mami, and they said "Brad!!" So, here we have Brad Crawford dressed in an American flag. Because, um.. well, there is supposedly a story behind this, but I'm not privy to it. Ask Mami. =D;; Wow, I haven't thought about Weiss Kreuz in ages. No comment...

So, how was your 4th of July??

I had to re-read the "Brad Crawford" part. What. XDD; I bet he's inwardly plotting something and cringing at the same time. lmao

It's gotta be a plot to.. um..? Well, it definitely involves a plot of epic proportions, I'm sure!

Kinda makes one wonder if Schu threatened to blackmail him.

AHhh. Icon! Our crack pair! X)

Still the scariest crack pair evar. : D By scariest, of course I mean cutest, strongest, and overall most awesome. ^_^;; (I love my permanent account! So many icons!! *_*)

I was told that alcohol is involved in some way with Brad's story. But I'm too afraid to see more... *waits to see if Mami will really write about it*

"Epic proporations", eh? I bet that's exactly Brad's self asessment ;-)

This is a great picture!

Nice pic.

On the 4th, I went with a friend to Arlington Park and got box seats to watch horse races and fireworks. It was really hot at times, and she got burned a bit, even though she had screen on, while I just got a little more brown, also screened. It was a good and amusing time during the races.

After the races, but before the fireworks were to start (it was still a bit light outside), she and I were talking about how we both felt that after past fireworks experiences that everything else just pale in comparison. We both know what it's like to be entertained by the gigantic displays the military (Navy for her, Army for me) puts on, and we both were blown away by Disney World's New Year's fireworks (Magic Kingdom for her, Epcot for me). Even with that, the fireworks were really nice and we had awesome seats to see those and the ones going on in other towns. I have a few recordings of them if you'd like to see them, after I upload 'em. Though one of them kinda shows how uh... unpatriotic I can be. xDD

LOL, I thought that was a naked Tezuka when I first saw the picture XDDD

I hope you had a good holiday too :D Although, I assume that July 4th in Japan is just like any other day, right?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 6th, 2007 10:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, before it colored, it really looked like Tezuka. But really... Tezuka, Brad, same difference! =D;

Haha, I really love the picture~

The fourth wasn't any fun here. It stormed really badly, so they cancelled our fireworks. That's Indiana for you, though.

The 4th of July was great. As usual, my family and I watched fireworks at the fountain. Traffic was hectic, but hey...it was fun. Good music, and good fireworks. Hahaha.

I have to say, its quite an interesting drawing.

You are such a talented artist!!
Grandpa and I had one granddaughter from Florida and one from Naselle here to celebrate the Fourth of July with us. We sat right under the fireworks sky show in the park. We watched the two tall ships put on a mock pirate/cannon fight in the river right in front of us. We all had a great time/week.

I love this!!! It didn't occur to me that you could do WK. Obviously, that series is my one true fandom love...! :)

(And then I went "Bwuh? July 4th...? Oh.")

Hurrah for your flatmates. :)

Niiice pic ^_^

I ran a 5K like every year (my fam started it 14 years ago in memory of my dad), saw Transformers (hell yeah!), and watched the fireworks from the soccer field next to my house. >.> It's a great spot cuz I don't have to go downtown and deal with the crowds of people.
