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.

not sure here in this neighborhood whether these are gunshots or firecrackers. there is one that goes off , then waits and I can hear another in the distance, then this one goes off and then that one over and over.
If only there was some kinda musical chimes to go with it.

Well, yeah, I was sticking with the denial, in terms of gunshots vs. firecrackers, in this neighborhood too.

(Watch maeyan hit me for telling you that... No, seriously, I don't think I've ever heard gunfire...)
