When I was on Livejournal, I seemed to post about the 4th of July every year. Every year, I would talk about how fireworks were so romantic, and how I just wanted to share the day/night with someone. I tried to share it with her, over the last 6 years (or 5, however many there were). It was never that great. She wasn't into it, and I don't blame her. Whole thing is stupid. I guess she ruined it for me.

This year, I'm not thinking about loneliness or how romantic fireworks are. I'm just thinking how annoying they are, how they frighten people with PTSD, babies, wildlife, domestic non-humans, how they keep me awake, how I am forced to have my windows closed and my a/c running (which doesn't actually seem to work--it's hotter in here than outside!)...

How terribly American, to celebrate by being totally inconsiderate, noisy, stupid, and blowing stuff up. What a fine tradition we pass down.

Never put all your faith and money into a relationship. Even Elaine and Guybrush broke up before Monkey Island 2 started. And then Disney ripped Monkey Island off for the Pirates of the Carribbean ride/films. All this began with fireworks. Nothing there but trouble.
