The weekend

Pretty long and fun weekend. Friday was a pretty easy day, cept for having to wake up at 7 in the morning (thx sweetie!) and then finding out I didn't have to be at Six Flags until 10, so I napped for another hour and then went in. It took the guys from Garden State Fireworks longer than they thought to arrive so we just bullshitted for an hour or so, cleaned up the Batset a little bit. Then we finally headed over to the park where they were having Jackson Day and unloaded all the firework tubes from the truck, racks of 6", 5", 4" and 3" diameter tubes, about 100 of them all together. Then I had to leave to go coach, pick up my girl from work and see a movie with some more friends. We saw the Exorcism of Emily Rose. It was an okay movie, great court scenes for anyone into that stuff, some pretty freaky scenes where Emily is all contorted and possesed. The main thing about the movie though is it being based on a true story, and wondering how much of the movie is real and how much is Hollywood.

Sat was another early day, spent the morning at Six Flags getting crap together for the fireworks show that night. Then we headed over to the park in Jackson and got stuck for over an hour waiting for the damn parade to pass by us and into the park. They had no other way of getting us into the park. It sucked cause when we got there they had already loaded all the fireworks, which was something that I has been looking forward to doing! So I just helped assemble the huge two-story-tall Six Flags Fright Fest glowing sign, and ran a few cables for the pyro as well. The show was spectacular, we fired from around 100 yards away and the shells were exploding right over our heads. I literally had to stare straight up the entire show, which lasted around 20 minutes. Yea, neck cramps :P Two of the shells with delayed fuses after the initial burst went off like 50 feet over our heads, that was crazy, and a few burning emebers fell amongst us as well. A small fire was set off in the woods but was easily contained and put out after the show. It took us less than an hour to break everything down and head back to the park. I was up that day from 7am to 2am and worked from 9am to 11pm. But it was a lot of fun.

Today I spent the entire day with my girlfriend because she was leaving to head back up to school in Vermont. Went to the beach and flew my kite, which I hadn't done all summer, and then just lounged in the sun. I didn't put on any sunscreen cause my dark skin protects me for short periods of time... however I'm only tan above my waist - I wore long pants all the time during Batman rehearsals (which is when I tan and lose my winter whiteness) and so my legs got roasted [grin]

Anyways I think I'm going to get caught up on the T2D developments throughout the past month I've been busy so I can start programming again. Yep sounds good. kbye.
