That’s All, Folks!

So it’s a few minutes before 9, and we’re at Stinque World Domination Headquarters, getting ready to walk the hundred feet up our hillock to catch the annual Fantabulous Sandy Eggo Fireworks Spectacular, where we can see all four synchronized displays at once, when there’s this Huge Fucking Rumble. We’re also across the freeway from the airport, and while occasionally a jet engine cuts through the still of night, it’s a bit odd.

We reach the top of the hill, where the usual crowd has gathered. Someone has a radio tuned to the synchronized music, which begins, as always, promptly at 9, and…

Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

What we missed was the entire fucking Fantabulous Sandy Eggo Fireworks Spectacular going off at once. And, from a location similar to ours, it looked like this.

Here’s some truly incredible snaps of Seattle’s fireworks show.

We lasted our usual 20 minutes–mostly by thinking about baseball.

They blame it on computer error. Is it still OK to make a snark along the lines of “They shoulda used a Mac”?

Mind you, I always heard this about Sandy Eggo: one splort and it’s over.

@Benedick: Yes, but it’s one awesome splort.

This is what I come* here for–the high-level, mature discourse.

@flippin eck: Don’t forget the bunnehs, feminist theory, and Bloggies’ car videos.

Speaking of discourse, I think it’s high time (so to speak) that baked comes out of her lurking.
