LMAO

On the subject of fireworks, there is a huge (organised) display starting half a mile from my apartment at 6pm  

Just been for a takeaway, and passed shed loads (well busloads) of Chavs coming into town for it.

Well I think so, if you look in the fire you can clearly make out a Plymspotter esque figure!

Well yes the orange glow is most likely to be eminating from my fabulous hair  angel  I think though that the organisers were perhaps forgetting that most Goths are fire-proof and cannot be burnt, you see, we think of everything Big grin

It was a mistake, just because I happen to have a 1600's hair cut they assumed that I was a very life-like effigy of Guy Fawkes  grumpy

Personally, I hate fireworks, although I think they are very pretty, I just don't like the bangs. I am always terrified that someone will either aim a firework at me or at one of my cats. Neds / chavs in Whitburn are actually that cruel.  Sad

Unfortunately fireworks are prohibited in Arizona. So, yesterday I drove 150 miles to New Mexico and bought about $100 worth of them. Slightly illigal, but I had to do it. Hopefully I wont blow my hands off tonight.

I just got back from the pub, they had a small display. I went to a big public display last night.

$100 (about £60) would buy about two rockets over here...if that. How many did you get?

Over in New Mexico, $100 buys you a LOT of fireworks. I got about 160 small bottle rockets, 8 medium size rockets, 8 huge rockets, sparklers, 4 roman candles, 3 tanks that drive around an then blow up, etc. 2 rockets for 60 pounds is ridiculous. They cost about 3 cents to make.
