Good pre 4th day  
Today was a very nice day off. After breakfast we went to some tents that sell fireworks and picked up some snakes, smoke bombs and fountains. We got two boxes of Killer Bees which are cool fountains that have little bees on the sides that shoot individually. We got one of these last year and it was really nice. So we'll set them off tomorrow. Some people are already blowing stuff up so I don't know if we'll get much sleep in the next two nights.

Then we went to watch Kung Fu Panda 2. We liked it better than the first one. Lots of fun. The panda is such a strong ENFP type. I hope they'll release these as a set once part 2 is out for DVD.

A buddy on youtube told me that I should repot my new flytrap and Sarracenia from Lowe's because they come only in sphagnum moss which is the wrong medium for them. I looked and he's right. Yikes! So I repotted them today and they should now do much better. I need to take a pic of the little tray bog I've made because it's so pretty. And I have room for more Sarracenias so I hope I can get some more from Ebay. There are two I want and they are auctions. Gosh I hate auctions. I just want to buy them

And I've been playing Red Dead Redemption a lot. In fact I hurt my wrist last night because I played so many hours in a row. Not too many games scare me but this one does. When you enter the area called Tall Trees it's freaky because there are bears and cougars and you don't know when they'll jump out and get out. You're always watching your back. Flower picking out there is dangerous. Those bears are scary. I got Chris to level 40 and right now I'm level 34. I'm determined to make it to 50 again this time. Tomorrow's the last day of Quad experience points. I REALLY need to take advantage of it though I'm so sick of the Pike's Basin mission. But it's the one worth most points so really it's the only one worth doing. Even with four times the points once you get to mid 30's it's hard to gain levels.

Today was fun! It turned out so well. Oh well, back to the grind stone tomorrow.

The movie was better than the 1st one. It had me laughing a lot. I love how serious Tigress is compared to Po.

Good luck on the auction, babe.

It has also been fun sharing Red Dead Redemption with you. You are so dedicated! :) It is nice we are helping each other level up our characters.

It was a great day. And now happy anniversary and happy 4th.
I like Tigress, she reminds me of me.
Thanks, I don't want to pay too much so we'll see if I get it.
Yeah, I want to get very far while there's still time.

I need to find a good fireworks display. The neighbor who used to shoot off big ones in our street moved away. I've been hearing fireworks go off the past two nights, and my dog doesn't like them one bit.

I have a diamond for you. It isn't the light green, but it is another two inch one. It is light blue, but I've been calling it "cobalt" because the color reminds me of cobalt budgies.

I don't let my birds fly on the 4th, but I need to catch one pigeon that's been loose since yesterday and won't go in the loft. It's nice to go see a good disply.

Oh thanks. That's funny because just yesterday I was looking for some and picked up a hot pink one.

The fireworks sound cool!
I enjoyed Kung Fu Panda 2, not so keen on the idea they plan to make like 6 or 7 movies of it though. I saw Cars 2 last night, it was pretty good though it focused around Mater an awful lot. I like that Michael Cain did the voice of the spy car.

Sometimes tips like that are very useful!

Good luck with the game, its lucky they're offering all these points.

It will be fun.
What? Six to seven movies? That's nuts. I see they left it set up for a third since his parents are alive and how that can cause tension with his adopted dad. That would be good.
Ugh, I think I'm going to hate that movie. I haven't seen anything about it but I need to do a pre-review and see if I'm right about these things I already suspect. The little I saw in the trailer looked like garbage.
Yeah, I'm glad he told me.
Yeah, I don't play unless they offer these because it's just near impossible.

Have fun with the fireworks!

I'd like to see a pic of your tray bog.
Desthagirion on July 4th, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
I'm sure I will.
Yes, I'll take a pic today.

Three cheers for the buddy who told you about the correct potting mixture to use!
Desthagirion on July 4th, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah I'm glad he told me.

Happy Fourth! The fireworks are the best part of it. Have fun setting yours off!

Yes indeed. I'm looking forward to it. Happy 4th to you too.
