Fireworks fail.

"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

Did you know that Mark Twain did not actually say that? Such a bummer, I've spent years living here and enjoying quoting him on that, and all this time I've just been perpetuating a fraud.

It's true, though, because it's really cold here in the summer time. But not only is it cold in the summer, it's very very foggy, especially at the coast, which is where they set off all the fireworks that are close to where we live. I'm thinking that the Bay Area should be allowed to celebrate the Nation's birthday in September instead of July, because do you know what fireworks look like when it's really foggy? Yeah, they look like red, white and blue clouds. Sorry I couldn't get a picture, but it wasn't for a lack of trying.

My brother in law is well known for his extreme downerness. So we were debating wether to go to the local fireworks. I asked him what he thought and he said that there were too many people, you can't find anywhere to sit, there is no parking and they don't last long enough. So I said, "great! Were going!" Since I knew everything would be the exact opposite of what he said and it was..we had a great time.

I think I am your brother in law, because I would have -- and probably in fact have -- said those same things.
