Ugh, I am tired of hearing all these firecrackers going off. I can't wait for this infernal holiday to be over with. I wish I were at work tonight. Then I wouldn't be constantly startled by the neighbours setting off firecrackers. On the other hand, maybe it's a good thing in case some idiot sets the house on fire. Still, it is quite disturbing and it sounds like a battle field out here. I do like the appearance of fireworks in the sky, but I have never been particularly fond of all the racket that they make.
