It's not a holiday today, officially. Banks and post offices should be open. Restaurants and libraries too. But most buildings and departments I know of were closed; the Athenaeum was closed; my favorite diner, which has historically been open 24/7/365 as far as I know, was closed. Funny... for a moment, Mako and I thought perhaps something terrible had happened in the world that we had yet to hear about; or that there had been a power or sewage outage. But no, it was simply Monday, July 3, that special holiday that comes around once every 7 years or so.
And Hotornot is still running strongs, a half-dozen years in. James is off to new ventures...
