Yup, that’s what happened to the guys that were part of the Gunpowder Plot. That whole poem that starts off “Remember remember the 5th of November. . .” is currently going on in full swing. No pun intended. There have been fireworks, firecrackers, and assorted boomings all last week, and today!! Apparently there is a huge bonfire and fireworks display going on down at the riverfront tonight.
Why am I not out there with everyone? Why am I sitting here writing about this? I have an Ecological Survey Paper to do tons upon tons of data from Kielder Forest. *eyes fall out of head* Let’s just say I’m not even halfway done and I’ve been at it all day. With a few short breaks inbetween.
Guy Fawkes day has been full of boomings and bangings and I doubt I’ll fall asleep to a quiet lull in the action. . . . seems odd to celebrate people getting caught for trying to blow up Parliament (and the King) with Fireworks and bonfires. . . . perhaps I am missing something.
