Random Thoughts and Musings

Good intentions have not given my ideas fruition this week. Between my neighbors shooting off fireworks half the night last night and (not bad) developments in my life, I am way behind on what I wanted to do here.

First off, a rant: in my city, fireworks are illegal without a specified permit. Does that stop anyone? Nope. My damn neighbors were out shooting off fireworks until after 2 a.m. this morning. Assholes!!! I have to get up before 6 a.m. to go to work. Jim tried to find out who was doing it so we could ask them to stop, but without success. As a result, I am flat worn out. I went and lifted weights for over two hours tonight and then had to go to the grocery store, so as a consequence, I have to delay the blogger poll results until Saturday.

Because of not bad reasons, I am going to be out of town tomorrow night and will get back Saturday afternoon. Regular scheduled blogging should resume then. There isn't an emergency- in fact it is an opportunity, so no biggie. It just means I have to leave the hubby home alone. (Sad face).

The topper is that it is in the triple digits temperature wise and all we have to keep us cool is a window air conditioner and a portable swamp cooler. As a result, it is WARM in the house. The weatherman says it isn't going to get cooler anytime soon, so we might as well get used to it.

In excellent news, the lovely Lisa at Sequentially Speaking, is putting her P.O.W.E.R. to good use. Go check out her blog for a fantastic list of "independent" books done by women creators. It is wonderful! I am deferring to her on this one as I couldn't do it better. Also, if you haven't joined P.O.W.E.R. in Comics, head over and do so! It is a great idea and Lisa is making things happen.

In good news, our comics were here on time! Yay! The bad news is that I haven't even looked at them and probably won't have a chance until I get back. Since Sunday is Jim and my 7th wedding anniversary, we will probably try and do something nice. Time flies!

Lastly, my "is this gratuitous" feature will happen, but it is delayed a few days as well. Thank you for humoring me, and take care! If you are experiencing the heatwave along with me, you have my sympathy!

Fireworks are illegal here in my city too. And we usually have the same fireworks problem you did. this year we seemed to have lucked out, or I was so exhausted from housework that I didn't hear them. Last year we asked the guys to stop and still had to call the police because they just didn't want to knock it off. And the police just said, "we're very busy." So that wasn't much of a help either.

We're having a yard sale tomorrow - and it's going to be in the 90's and humid, so I'm not looking forward to that. but at least we're not in the tripple digits yet.

I agree with you about the fireworks. They're supposed to be illegal here too but it didn't stop them from going off every second for most of the night.

Oh, and I actually finished the meme you tagged me with. I bet you thought that one would never get done, huh? :)
