Party feels that anyone with a paying job should be exempt from having to take off from work to attend a daytime event of this nature. He doesn't actually want to go to any of them at night, but had a harder time coming up with a reason why job holders shouldn't have to go (other than not wanting to). The fact that many of the venues for these events are not properly air-conditioned doesn't help any.
So, what do you think? The Party is right on the money or he is wrong wrong wrong and has no sense of fun? I will throw into the mix that Party has attended all "graduations" for his own children thus far and always attends anything they are participating in, even when he doesn't want to. So, even if you disagree with him, he does get credit with me for being a good sport (well, a little crabby, but still).

On to the news. I don't like to think of any of you just walking around on your own without at least something to talk about that will show that you are a mature, adult member of society. Like me. It's important to seem worldly and knowledgeable.
Sports is what you most need to know about right now. It's a couple days old, but people are still discussing basketball and if you haven't figured out what's going on, this should help you. Finally, basketball is done. The Dallas Mavericks (as opposed to the Palin/ McCain mavericks) beat the Miami Heat (not heat). It is apparently an appalling state of affairs because the Heat have gotten a lot hype as being "the" team since they got LeBron James and some other guys people seem to like. (Don't worry about who the other ones are, you aren't going to get into that deep a conversation over it). LeBron is all sad and pitiful about the whole thing. I guess the millions of dollars didn't ease the pain of losing. Personally, it would help me get over it before I even hit the locker room, but that's just me.

hockey in June. Snore.
If you follow baseball, the Phillies are in first place in the National League East. I have to say "east" because it turns out there is National League South, Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, or something excessive like that. Same for the American League. American League East leaders are currently the Red Sox. I live in the East, so I didn't look up the other 100 sub-divisions of each league. Who decided to make so many divisions? And, why didn't they just divide National and American either north/south or east/west? Why are there two separate leagues that encompass the whole country? I don't like how this is arranged at all. Entirely too convoluted. There is no way to just know if a team is National or American. And why those names? How about just the East baseball league and the West baseball league? Way easier to follow my way. Just saying.
Lastly, if you did not watch the Tony Awards (I did not), you should watch this clip of Neil Patrick Harris doing the opening number. It's very cute/clever and it will immediately catch you up enough on cultural goings-on that you'll be good to go for a few days.
