Why in the name of all that is HOLY am I the only person with "naked mal" listed as an LJ interest?
(Note that if I had left the original typo in, it would've read "baked mal" which is another interest entirely.)
As apparently the only person on my friendslist not being annoyed by the proximity of local fireworks1, I say unto you, Happy Other People Setting Off Explosive Things At A Reasonable Distance From Me That Give Me Vague Happy Childhood Flashbacks Without Requiring Any Actual Effort Or Risk To My Own Person Day.
I'm also amused that I can hear the fireworks, but look out the office (back-facing) window to see only... lightning-bugs.
1Not suggesting that the annoyance is unreasonable; just saying that happily, my neighbors seem to be setting things off far enough away that the sound level is not annoying, just vaguely comforting.
