  1. Oooh, just because it's the fourth already there, is no need to get ahead of yourself… well, no need to get ahead of the rest of us … well, no need to brag about it, anyhow.
    Anyone you know celebrate Guy Fawkes day anymore? I used to love that. Maybe I should stock up on some fireworks and start celebrating it. 😛

  3. It was either this or get up at midnight tonight to ensure synchronicity.This is not an appropriate time to brag LOM …..I am embarking on a career of International diplomacy here.I also have wonderful memories of Guy Fawkes day as a kid……huge bonfire and we even used to take our leftover firecrackers to school the following day.Now you need to a Masters Degree in explosives, and an annual refresher course and police certification before you can buy a handful of crackers.My world has gone to the dogs!

  4. Sorry you have to work GOM. Maybe a little celebration after you finish?

  5. More likely before I go. I work at night, and so will be heading off to work just about the time the fireworks displays are going off.

  6. Well thank you – this foreigner will take any day off! Our day off was today – it felt strange having a long w/end with the long component being a Friday. We have friends who celebrate the 4th as Colonial Ingrat's Day.
