The Champagne Cabana / Happy Valentines Day!
« Last post by Escaped Lunatic on February 13, 2019, 03:12:59 AM »
I'd like to wish all the fine ladies of the Saloon and China the happiest VD!  Oh wait, that came out wrong.  bibibibibi  The happiest D of V?  No, that doesn't really work either.

Maybe I'll just settle for sending a nice, romantic card.

Calach, I wonder if that has anything to do with my observations here, that so many people are more concerned with screen time? alalalalal

Seems unlikely. The enthusiasm with which people blow things up around here is startling and shocking the first time you see it. Literally everyone across the city and all through the countryside would have had boxes of rockets. Have you seen video of anti-aircraft fire over, say, Baghdad in the first Iraq war? That's what it sounds like, except more intense. And it used to be that this all happened right outside your door. I used to watch out the window and see for literally 180 degrees of view across the city firework bursting everywhere for an hour or more. People would set things off in the streets, in playing fields, on their roofs...

This year, all of that still happened, but almost completely outside the city. The sound reached here, and a fair amount of smoke, but only a handful of brave souls set off anything nearby. Unexpectedly successful environmental regulation, is what I think it was. Pretty sure there have been laws against fireworks within city limits for some time now, not obeyed of course, right up until this year.


*sigh* in the olden days I used to buy boxes of bombs too. They'd be sold along the roadside and I'd cart them back to the house. Used to be you could get fireworks locally for weeks before and after the festivals too. It's pretty fun setting off your own stuff. And really fairly normal to just set up on the playing field and make things go bang and then go home. But that's all years ago now.

Fireworks this year were utterly bizarre. Very nearly no one at all blew up anything within the city limits, so while thunder rolled in from the countryside for about thirty minutes either side of midnight, there was basically nothing to see. And actually, once the fireworks were done, it was still possible to see. In years past the entire skyline would light up, and the air grimly thicken, and the AQI would be "Hazardous" for the rest of the night. Improvement, I guess, but kind of a bust.

The fireworks are a bit sporadic this year.  Seemed like more on Jan 2nd (Chinese calendar) than Dec 31 or Jan 1.

Still, I plan to celebrate the year with lots and lots of ham.

Scooter Girl dropped by.  For some reason, she decided she needed to firmly pat me on the shoulder (repeatedly).  She's never done that before.  Guess which shoulder she picked.  ananananan ananananan ananananan

It reminded me of the time a friend decided to pinch my cheeks (the only time in my life anyone's done that) - A couple of days after getting my wisdom teeth out.  ananananan ananananan ananananan ananananan ananananan

Still waiting for the docs to get back and look at the MRIs.
