Fireworks [Jul. 4th, 2007|10:41 pm]
We got rained on watching fireworks tonight. The wind was high and there was a lot of lightning as well, sometimes giving the fireworks a run for their money. We didn't get soaked or anything, it was just sprinkling, but enough that all the blankets ended up draped over people instead of sitting under them.

The wind had an interesting effect on the fireworks. I'm mostly over fireworks that make shapes, but they had what I dubbed a pokeball firework: a big sphere, half red and half blue with a splotch of white in the middle that I thought was kind of neat. There were some sort of dandelion-y after-glow ones that I liked. And the red ones that sort of crawled around before falling.

And now, for Neal: Lyrics to 'Bumble Bees', by Aqua

Oh, bumble bee
Bump into me
I am in for pollination
Bumble bee
Take what you see
I'm in need for your donation
I can't wait for your invasion

And so on. (The guy's part involves repeated use of the phrase "wham bam, thank you ma'am".) So yeah. That's what I meant about the innuendo.

Hope you're feeling better. It might be worth seeing a neurologist to find out what triggers your headaches and how you can avoid having them so often.

We had no rain with our fireworks, though they were somehow anticlimactic, like the person sitting the board couldn't figure out the right fireworks in the right order.

Weirdly, I could see Louisville/Lafayette, Broomfield, and Boulder's fireworks from where I was sitting, but the Squaresville ones were somewhat obscured by trees.

I don't actually have headaches very often. Generally, it's low blood sugar -- I get headachy when I go too long between meals, and if not that, it's probably sinuses.

The spouses will have to write down all the expenses.

It is the increase in your net worth that constitutes true wealth building.
Loans are some of the more popular and oft used methods to address this problem.
This is the main cause for the introduction of the bad credit surety bond program.
