Misc.

I heard on the radio this morning that golf course owners throughout the US are trying to feed contraceptives to "resident" Canadian geese, since their numbers are getting too high. Anyone else expect PETA to go nuts over that?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince comes out two weeks from Saturday! While I don't think I have enough time to re-read all of OotP, I should have enough time to re-read the last couple of chapters.

Still haven't been to the movies yet this season. Actually, I haven't seen a movie in the theater since ALW's The Phantom of the Opera on my birthday. I'll probably wait until Episode Three and Batman Begins come out on DVD before I see them. I'd love to see Bewitched and Fantastic Four on the big screen, though. As far as War of the Worlds, I hated the book when I had to read it in high school, so I seriously doubt I'll love the movie. After the summer, I probably won't go to the movies again until Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire comes out in November.

The local non-profit organizations started selling fireworks Saturday afternoon. Of course, people have been using fireworks since last month, but that's another story. While I'm glad that July 4th is a Monday, which means a long weekend, I'm going to have a hard time sleeping what with all the fireworks going off Monday night.

I've come to truly dislike fireworks, not the big production ones, but the bottle rockets and all that non-sense. This is mostly because of my neighbor, and her need to stock up for the year. She likes to light off bottle rockets at about 10:30 at night on random days. Annoying to say the least.

Tell me about it. Are bottle rockets illegal where you guys are? They definitely are here, but of course that doesn't stop anyone.

I believe they are illegal within Memphis city limits, we're not technically in the city though so I think she can get away with it. I keep meaning to look it up and never do it.

Huh. They're illegal in the whole state here. But at least us Nebraskans are allowed more than Iowans -- they can only have sparklers, caps, and snakes. We can have anything that doesn't include a projectile. Oh, I forgot -- no out-of-state fireworks. But that never stops people from going to Missouri, where they sell 'em all year.
