So I found a few headsets online for about 14 bucks, not too shabby.

So, to recap, I've been watching a cartoon about colorful ponies off and on for three days and now I'm watching milk commercials with weird animation. It's times like these that one has to pause and reevaluated one's life lol.

Tell them that you are a scientist, and you discovered a species of pterodactyl that actually isn't extinct, but just very rare. You kept one at your house for further study, but it got out of the cage it was in and ate your ostrich egg.

So I was doing fireworks right and I accidentally shot a bottle rocket over this overweight crazy man's house across the street and I adamantly apologized but he kept swearing and yelling at me so I have him an unfriendly gesture involving a finger and went inside.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.

That's very gangsta of you.  We would have thrown the beer bottles at him followed by black cats and roman candles.  Maybe even a mortar shell if he hadn't left with a celerity to our liking.

As it is, our neighbor is a cool Canadian fellow and just stayed inside watching TV.  The Africans (Sudanese, I think) up the road were having a blast.  Several of them in fact.

It was a good time...except for the burn fingers.

I deliver a daily morning paper - did that today no problem - and a weekly paper on Thursday afternoons. Usually the bundles of that paper arrive at my home by noon. It's now almost 1:45 and no sign of them. I won't be delivering those until well into the evening. Not going out in the heat! The paper is a free one, so I'd better not get any complaints about late delivery!
