Right now I'm doing laundry and getting ready for game 2 of the World Series. Oy. I hate fireworks with a passion. IMHO, private ownership of fireworks should be banned and placed under some kind of penalty, such as death. Fuck 'em. People want to see fireworks, go see a professional fireworks show and shut the fuck up. Some of us like to actually SLEEP. When July 4 comes around I flee my neighborhood. It's like Iwo Jima around here. It literally goes ALL.NIGHT.LONG. This past 4th, I stayed at a hotel for the night. And I'll do it again.
