Gir!

A few random notes from me


Pre-registered for Pennsic today. Only 42 days left to go. Gah!

I ordered my contacts yesterday. They can't get here fast enough. Hate these glasses.

Been playing a lot of Starcraft lately after hearing they're going to be releasing a II. I also realized I bought Brood Wars ages ago but never played it, so after I breeze through the original (been using cheats) I'll try to play it through.

Q got me the latest 2 issues of "Twisted ToyFare Theater" yesterday as an anniversary gift. No doubt I will love them. :D (I got him roses on Wednesday, which are blooming nicely.) We went out Tuesday night to Outback to celebrate and used up a whole stack of gift cards.

Nice boring weekend coming up, to cap off a nice boring week. Plus, double XP weekend on CoH - woo hoo!

Fireworks?


Does anyone else find it odd that in this age of The Terrorists Will Win that I see more 4th of July fireworks stands than I've ever seen in my life? When we moved to Maryland I saw these roadside tents and in-store displays for fireworks pop up in June and figured they were legal here. Last year, though, when I went up to Mom's in Pennsylvania, I saw them there, too (and by the same company names as well), for the first time ever in my life. Did they suddenly become legal in Pennsylvania? When I was a kid Dad would usually pick some up when we went to South of the Border in South Carolina, or when we crossed through Virginia on our way home, or even we sometimes popped over the bridge into Delaware, but never in Pennsylvania.

Did I miss something? It's weird. (But neat - I inherited my father's love for pyrotechnic theatrics, so I've assumed the duties of setting the backyard on fire every year for the kids. They loved it last year, so we're going to do it again this year as well.)
