Fireworks All Round.

Today is Guy Fawkes Day in the UK - a day where people celebrate a guy attempting to blow things up by, well, blowing things up. Yep, there have been fireworks going on and off all day - in every which direction. Being that I work fairly central (about a 10 minute walk to the Thames near South Bank) I had a lovely view of fireworks over the old court buildings of London - very pretty! Made the walk halfway home in the rain much more pleasant.

For me, though? Every firework is celebrating the US election results. I'm thoroughly pleased. I really hope that Obama can bring about some positive changes - although just the fact that he got in, shows that people are thinking differently already.

Good days. Loving the good days.

We had a guy start lighting fireworks on our corner in the pouring rain after Obama was officially announced the winner last night. Too too awesome.

I'm really proud of America.

We're not so stupid after all, eh? :)

I was in London for Guy Fawkes day once, and I just couldn't understand why anyone would watch fireworks in the cold, when in America it's just so associated with the Fourth of July. But I guess if you're a country that's never had to declare independence from anyone, you take what you can get as far as reasons to set off fireworks. (And if you want it to be for Obama, then more power to you!)
