Inevitable Independence Day Friday Five

In the U.S., we're heading into a holiday weekend as we prepare to celebrate Independence Day. Although the topic of this meme may be inevitable, independence never is, so it couldn't hurt to stop and think for a minute about independence in a general way and holidays in a more trivial way.

1) Do you celebrate 4th of July (or some other holiday representing independence?)

2) When was the first time you felt independent, if ever?

3) If you're hosting a cookout, what's on the grill?

4) Strawberry Shortcake -- biscuit or sponge cake? Discuss.

5) Fireworks -- best and worst experience

And a bonus 1776 category for the Broadway fans among us:

1) Favorite Patriot

2) Favorite Tory

3) Favorite Wife

4) Favorite Song

5) Favorite Line

As always, let us know in the comments if you play!


  1. I played! And now I want strawberry shortcake for breakfast!

  2. Me, too. Come to my place and check out Babs' dessert menu.

  3. I have declaired indepenance and play.

  4. I am sitting in my office 28 blocks from Independence Hall right now.

    I used to work 3 blocks away and would sit in the park surrounding it while I ate my lunch. That was before they went crazy with the post 9-11 security. You can't just hang out in that park anymore.

    Anyway, I'm going to go do this meme on my blog right now.

  5. I did it! I did it!

    Who can tell me how to use HTML to put the link in here so it doesn't look all messy like this:
