    It is indeed very ordinary in Switzerland today.

    *puts on American Flag speedo*

    Ordinary walk start.

  3. Todd McClafferty said on

    I’m not buying it, Andrew. I have colleagues in Switzerland, and when they’re not taking two months to spend in the Med, they’re doing all other sorts of fabulous stuff. No day in Switzerland is ordinary.

    Say hello for me also.

    Otro día mas en España. But damn we’re still all celebrating because we won the European Cup!

  6. Chris Hunt said on

    Thanks, I’ll be having a normal meal, and not lighting some fireworks to mark the occasion

    Thanks from Argentina. We are celebrating Independence Day on July 9th.
    And it’s rainy and cold here.

  8. Joe Oviedo said on

    Thanks, here having an extraordinary ordinary day. Happy 4th of July to you.

    Actually UK should’nt be on that list, being the losing side, and all that :-D

  10. JeffreyATW said on

    You’ve got “Korea” twice, as well as a fictional country called “North”. “South Korea” is correct, though.

  11. Frédéric Hewitt said on

    Funny, but I don’t think that the 4th July is an ordinary day in Rwanda and Philippines, at least… :)

  12. Delwin said on

    I didn’t know there was a country called “The” and that it appeared alphabetically between Gambia and Georgia. :)

  13. Roberto Baca said on

    I think it’s a special day in the Philippines too. Happy Fourth of July!

  14. Joseph said on

    It’s quite ordinary in Kenya today.
    @Delwin Am mazed as well, I bet that’s just assumed to be common knowledge.

  15. Delfi Ramirez said on

    Happy 4th of July, Jeff. :)

  25. Rick said on

    How dare you. July 4th is hardly an ordinary day in either the Philippines or Rwanda.


  26. Don Ulrich said on

    Yeah, I get it. Whatever. *sigh*

  27. Cathie said on
