Insecure Writer's Support Group- Take your firecracker and place it up you $#!
It is the first day of the month which means it is time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group where you can release your fears to the world and/or offer encouragement to people who are writers or are just joining in on the fun...like me. This is hosted by Mr. Ninja Alex J Cavanaugh so please check everyone out.
Today is Canada Day-Yippee, Yahoo and all that jazz. I am proud of my country because we did kick your ass and burnt the White House down during the war of 1812 (throwing tomatoes at me yet??) but we became a nation showing our strength during the First World War. We were part of the D-Day landings (Juno) and we liberated Holland which my dad was a part of. We have made strong headway in the medical profession, space and sports. In Film (now we're talking) we brought great actors like Mary Pickford (America's Sweetheart), Fay Wray (King Kong fame), Deanna Durbin (saved Universal Pictures), William Shatner (Star Trek), Christopher Plummer (great actor) and Jim Carrey (OK weird nutty guy). If I want, I can go to Toronto and see great fireworks put on by professionals set to music or I can go to nearby Lake Ontario and watch fireworks also set by professionals. Will I do this? No-I want to do nothing tomorrow but read my blog buddies' posts and listen to the Battle of the Bands and make a card. This sounds wonderful except I know what will happen....morons will rule tomorrow eve.
These morons believe that buying these cheap, possibly fire-inducing, fireworks
will make them happy. In fact, right now, as I write this, morons are at work letting these stupid, useless fireworks go "pop". They are loud enough to freak my dog out and make me feel like I am under attack. Do these fireworks give out breath-taking sparkles in a variety of colours? Nope! They go "Pop"-you know like a useless lay (sorry). There is a family across the street that buy them for each long weekend/holiday in the summer. The moron parents light them and hand it to their 5 and 4 year old kids so they will let them go. I am almost wondering if they have life insurance on their kids but this is what they do and one day I will see an ambulance come. I have heard where these fireworks have landed on people's roofs and then caught fire...something to look forward to. Boys love to blow things up but, to see them light these stupid things and see them flick in the air for 2.3 seconds before they go "pop", makes me think they have premature ejaculation issues...just saying.
Is this a rant? Your darn-Tootin it is! There is only one thing to stop these moronic galoots and that is to ban them! Alberta has banned them except for the professionals so why can't Ontario and the rest of North America? I mean I remember kids placing a firecracker in a frog once-simply not nice! So ends my rant and if you want to see fireworks, see the real kind at your town or city and enjoy it that way. If you are one of the said morons who do buy these useless "poporama" explosives, don't take it personally as I am entitled to my own opinion and will still like you...even if you are a moron concerning this:)
