The boys are using their free tickets on Terminator.

I'm in a huge theater with eight women in front of me and two men behind me. I have french fries and some sort of odd tea. And I plan to write a blog review.

I enjoyed it, mostly. I don't know how to assess it objectively. I can tell, based on car conversation, that it was rather better than Terminator: SysAdmin. That one man is very attractive. Um...Joe Manganiello. He has a really great nose. And is good at playing kind of a dope. I will think it over.

It's July 4, or Independence Day, in the United States. We celebrate the day that the colonies formally declared their independence from Great Britain - and that includes independence from tax.

When I was a child, my dad put on the big neighborhood fireworks display. We'd go to the big tent early in the morning and he'd buy cones, roman candles, etc. I was allowed to fill a paper grocery bag with firecrackers, sparklers, snakes, smoke bombs, pinwheels, etc. I had to light them with a punk instead of a lighter, to be safe.

And I set them off all day, then in the evening, Dad would do his show. Later in my teen years, he and I drove a couple times to a July 4 party of some kind to eat roast pig and see a display.

If it were legal now, I'd be the one putting on the show. But we have only things that emit colored smoke, plus small sparklers. And no one blows up ant hills with firecrackers anymore, I guess.

Flying things are. But I wish we could still have cones, fountains and pinwheels.

I thought this was pretty interesting; not the article, which addresses some irrelevant stuff without a complete context, on the one hand intellectually dishonest, but on the other hand addressing people who don't know how the government works, anyway, and so what's the point? The interesting thing was the comments; they were all over the place, some good, some terrible, just sort of fascinating, really. Like a weird microcosm of reasons to abandon the world wide web.

Those showed stunning cognitive dissonance.

This is how we compromised, except of course, his colors don't look fluish. I told him I'd quilt in some seams to get more of the look of the other one, and so I'll have more ironing but way less cutting. Playing to strengths.

I accidentally was logged out of TweetDeck. Once every few months or year, I have to re-log in to Twitter in an app, and it goes wrong. Every time. And I send them an obnoxious note about it, and they reply telling me they have my best interests at heart. Whatever. Here's this year's mean note:

For years, you've done this nonsense to me, telling me when some stupid thing forces me to log in that it's "suspicious." Once in awhile something makes me log in again, and you think I've suddenly actually left the house with my ancient Macbook and allowed it to be ripped from my hands so that someone can tweet in my name. Leave me alone.

Looking forward to pointless reply.

I use Firefox. Chrome is a bust on my computer. But everything Twitter works, only whenever I have to log in for some reason, they call it suspicious. Been that way since ever.

+MrsA Wiggins if I didn't have the Firefox password manager, I'd be lost. And Twitter isn't very responsive when you need them to be. I imagine there's some way you could force it to let you reset...

Too much trees! There are five groups of people setting off illegal stuff but mostly all just behind trees, and just past the distance of a walk.

Here are some lame but pretty legal things.

It's something I've always managed to avoid, but I don't think I'd be all that surprised. ;-)

I had no takers for Ault Park and fireworks this evening. But the backyard is nice, too.

I know it will be as bad as the first movie but they're just too good looking not to go see it with the girls.

Kenn wants to see Terminator so I'll wait to see that one with her.

If I had the kids I'd take them to see fireworks but without them I just don't care to fight the crowds alone.

Apparently, we're calling this "stylized" now. :-) It's pink yarrow from the north side of the front yard.

This sounds good.
 
You'll be blown away by how delicious this vending machine staple is when it's homemade.

But it doesn't keep as long as the commercial stuff. Not that that should be a problem.

I'm going to make quilts for all my kids. The top I finished the other day is for a daughter, but I'm going to complete Aaron's first. For reasons. He chose blue, green and cream fabrics; in the photo, the one on the left will be for the binding, then I did some sample blocks for him.

I told him the two on the right could be sewn at jolly angles, then squared up for the blocks. Third from right would be sewn in groups of four, in varying configurations. And on the left, they could either all be the same, or all different. I was plugging for the far right, but he chose far left. It's by far the fussiest one, with much more measuring, cutting, and putting together, but I expect I'll find or work out some shortcuts for it.

:-) I made a new post with the final block design I'm using.

I'm so happy this store has reopened. I can always find plants here others don't sell, and the employees are warm and helpful.
