Happy Independence Day from Tekyu.com!
For all of you fellow Americans, I pray you have a safe and totally badass 4th of July.
In case we hadn’t made our location abundantly clear (what with my occasional bitching about Arizona weather and the HOT lack of variety therein), we operate out of the USA. Daison and Purplemonkeydishwasher, are likely off doing cool things and enjoying this barely fathomable random spell of great weather we’re having (IE: rain). Deadpool likely already has the police on his tail and won’t be reporting in until he can establish an alibi.
As for me, I’m not fortunate enough to get the day off today, but regardless I am compelled to raise my hand in a proud salute to the many patriots who fight to uphold the many freedoms we enjoy. Something I don’t do often enough here or in general.
It’s easy to think about the heavily advertised elements of this holiday like cook outs, buxom anime women, fireworks, Bed Bath & Beyond(!) and totally awesome drunken brawls, but it’s important to give thanks for the heroic men and women that put their lives on the line to preserve our way of life.
My father instilled a strong sense of respect for those that serve and that hasn’t been hard to come by with so many friends and family being in the military doing us proud.
On that note, let’s have as few fireworks hazards as possible in the pursuit of a totally awesome 4th of July… and if someone could make a point and set aside something from the grill for Tekyu, that would rock hard.
That would both be totally awesome and appreciated and stuff.
