yeah, i need a vacation

Am going away on one--just a long weekend, for the 4th of July, but still. Will be the first vacation without my laptop in tow in---oh, I don't remember how long. This is probably indicative of something. Various notebooks will be accompanying me, though, so I hope to get some (a lot) of writing done. We'll see.

Anyways, have a great fourth, everyone!
In the states, who gets to play with fireworks depends on where you are and whether the cops feel like enforcing regulations. Most places, they only step in if people are being stupid and endangering other people. And everyone gets to play with ground-based fireworks. They sell them in grocery stores every June!
