Someone out here has been doing fireworks every evening since Saturday. Thankfully they seem to stop before 11. :lol:

Honestly, even though I kept seeing fireworks stands, it just never registered in my mind that July 4th was coming up.

People in my neighborhood have definitely been shooting things off randomly throughout the day/evening since Fri/Sat. Last night they continued until about midnight. Today there's definitely been an increase and I don't anticipate being able to go to bed until well after midnight.
The main thing that's annoying me about it is that they primarily seem to be just doing the ones that are one loud explosion, instead of the ones that are a bunch of smaller pop and fizzes that result in pretty colors and so on. Oh well. Once it gets darker tonight I'll probably go outside and watch to see if anyone's setting off aerials. If I'm gonna be up, I might as well enjoy seeing them. :)

Fireworks are banned in Australia because they're too dangerous :lol:. In NZ you're only allowed to buy them around Guy Fawkes's, but people stockpile them so you get assholes shooting them off any time of the year with no regard for animals/children. I hate fireworks with all my being.

I went downtown to see fireworks by Navy Pier, which I think is the main firework show in Chicago (at least the urban area). I wasn't super close by, but there were still hundreds of people around. I thought it was just like any other fireworks show I've seen lol. Getting home from downtown was not as much of a nightmare as I thought it'd be though.

I heard people shooting them throughout the day since a few days ago.

I'm also in the Southside so there are points when you're like, ...was that a gunshot or fireworks? -- actually, if that was a gunshot someone would have exploded.

I did my usual lazy-fireworks-show routine - I stood out in the front yard and watched the fireworks displays from nearby cities. I couldn't see everything, of course, but I could catch the higher/more spectacular bursts. And all with no travel (well, OK - from my front door to the front of the yard XD ) and no crowds. And I had some leftover potato salad and iced tea, which is a decent night-time mini-picnic.

Walked by two girls, who offered me a smoke. They looked about 15 or younger. I was like, no. My first thought was, wow, I'm old enough to be their teacher or friends with their moms.

They probably thought they were sooooo cool because they were smoking (which is such a 15-year-old thing). XD

I just watched Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013). It's got a helluva soundtrack… :cool:







Spoiler: show
If you're not familiar with the character of Alan Partridge (played by comedian Steve Coogan), the joke is that he's a failed BBC sportscaster and talk show host who, in his twilight years, has been exiled from London to Norwich regional radio where he plays uncharacteristically upbeat '80s Brit-pop like this. It's uncharacteristic because, well… just watch some Alan Partridge.

I unboxed my tablet today. It is a K107. I will need to get a SD memory card to get it to register as an external HD on my computer.
