Another year in the can. Great year personnally, sucky year
professionally, double sucky based on world events.
Idiots outside are shooting off fireworks in a cold drizzle. It's not
quite cold enough to snow, but it's gotta be really close. Most of the
fireworks are plain old firecrackers, but some are m-80's or cherry
bombs, and the smart-asses are putting them in communal trash cans
at the end of the street. They've been doing that intermittently for 2
weeks, with a single bam scaring me every other night. Now it sounds
like a world war 1 artillery duel. tiring.
