More night sky lights

Tonight is another night of the HSBC’s Celebration of Lights fireworks spectacular. Which means traffic on public transit and in the private autocars will be quite busy even if you’re not going. The downtown area is going to be quite the happening place, so if you’re a fan of crowds or explosions then you’re probably already on your way to the fireworks.

Good watching points are English Bay and Kits Beach. Don’t expect to make a quick break back home after the last explosion rocks the downtown core, because traffic tends to be even worse afterwards. Plus there tends to be about a million cops everywhere, so they’ll all notice that you’re left tail light is out.

So stay home and watch that disc from Zip.ca that you’ve been meaning to get to. Or go watch Clerks 2 which is much funnier than you might think it would be.

    Takes us about 10 minutes to get from our spot near Stanley Park to our home in the West End – really not bad at all. The ones I feel sorry for are the skytrain people whose commute lasts about 3 hours. Oh and those I don’t feel sorry for – those who think it’s a good idea to try and drive home right away on closed streets. Silly.

    Last night, China’s performance was very theatrical and they had (to quote John) “Cooler stuff”. Italy’s was dramatic and over the top – which isn’t a bad thing at all. We’re looking forward to Wednesday night.
