The nice thing about summer is the incredible amount of things to do outside. Sure, it's all physical activity in hot weather, but it makes you a better person and feels great once you get going. Add in summer movies and maybe even a bit of reading, and there's no limit on the amount of things to do. Which is good, because there just isn't much happening here.

Ah well, it's the 4th of July. Apparently there's other things to think about than gaming right now. Fireworks and barbecue, anyone?
