delirium pissed off
You know, if I were a terrorist attempting to blow something up in this country, I think I'd do it on the Saturday before November 5 (and when did it change from fireworks on the fifth to fireworks the preceding Saturday, anyway?). You could make an ungodly loud explosion, and nobody would notice in the middle of the din of all the other ungodly loud explosion. Everyone would just wake up in the morning to find a gaping hole in the city centre and no clue how it got there.

Fucking fireworks.

I was going to disagree with you over this, but the people next door just opened up with the wrong sort of fire works.

Fireworks :D As I said on IRC, you can send them to me. They shoot my attention to bits, though, because every time I hear one go off, I leap up and try to hang out the window looking for the cause of the sounds, and stay watching until just before they start up again. And I really find the idea in your entry blackly amusing -- the irony of a celebration for a *failed* bombing covering up a successful one.

And you could dress up as Guy Fawkes and dance to gramophone records and kidnap impressionable young girls and shave their hair off and take over the BBC to talk about syndicalism. It would be awesome.

Oddly enough, I wasn't thinking of that at all when I made the post. You're right, though.

Snape/Aslan sslash? I'm afraid to ask.

I do rather feel that there's a truly spectacular Darwin Award just waiting to happen now. Someone somewhere must be that stupid, right?

(Also? Snape/Aslan is nasty, bad and wrong, and I will have no part in it. I will not abide anything that threatens that sanctity of the Lucy/Aslan OTP, damnit!)

I was going to reply saying much the same thing, but you did it 100-times better.

While stood out in the back-garden tonight having a fag, I was thinking similar, only it was shooting someone in my head - yet again proving that your thoughts are greater than mine. :}

Yes! I remember as a child, bonfire night was always on the 5th - regardless of what night of the week it was. I hate hate hate that they do it on the saturday before the 5th.

However, in all my years (many many many years *cries*) I find that people start letting off fireworks mid October, and continue doing so until mid December. It's annoying, and frustrating to pet owners. Really, I'm lucky - with Snowball possibly being deaf, she doesn't hear the fireworks - if she does, it doesn't bother her in the slightest. I can only image how crazy my mums dog is going right now, considering he goes mad if he hears a bird flying past the window. :x

Oh yes. The way they seem to be drawn out for three months is an entirely different rant, and I'm with you entirely on that one.

I'm also fairly sure that Snowball isn't deaf. When I had the smoke alarm fiasco when I was staying over with you, she definitely seemed to hear it (poor kitty; apologise to her and give her some love from me). Possibly she's deaf for lower frequencies though.

You know, last night I was thinking just the same thing :P

Based on the noise outside my window, round here it's fireworks on both the preceding Saturday and Sunday, and on the 5th itself.

Incidentally it's Diwali on Thursday, so it'll all start up again.

Fortunately I love fireworks.
