the cops were outside for a few hours yesterday evening. they were looking for a guy who wasn't home. they took lots of pictures of a car and then towed the car away. i got filled in by the local mexican neighborhood watch. they've been looking out for me. they know i'm alone at night and keep an eye out. that made me feel good. it also made me like mexicans more. i like my downstairs neighbor. he's a chef and one day while i was out playing with tech, he stood and watched tech play in the grass like he loved cats. i fell in like with him immediately.
i had sparklers to light off and they were dollar store sparklers, so they were kind of lame. but there were three packages of five. the first one i burned one and two at a time. the second and third package, i lit all five at once. that was cool. doc was supposed to come out with me, but begged off at the last minute. typical. i got to see lots of fireworks over the freeway and sat outside for a while watching them. then i came inside and we watched the boston pops special with the fireworks at the end. they were magnificent.
i'm watching msnbc at the waiting for the kasey anthony verdict to come down. i didn't care much about the case, but i care about the verdict. i don't know why, i don't know why this case is any more important than any other murder mystery case out there. it's all nancy grace's fault. she's evil.
there's another chance at storms today, actually all week long. i live for storms.
