Fireworks
I have an awesome location, and you don't.

Impromptu fireworks just now.

The rumor is that Microsoft paid for it. Something to do with Vista.

I may not have been close enough to get covered with ash, but I have an *excellent* view from over here. I can sit at my computer and glance out my window and see the whole thing. And no ash. ha!

:p

Ooh, I was wondering. We could see the reflection of fireworks in a neighboring building's windows.

We just brought the boy's two kittens over to my place and they've been hiding under the bed. The transition is tough, I'm sure, but the open window and veryloud</i> explosions really couldn't have helped.

My friend Elan's company 42Entertainment was responsible. It's a game for the release of the new Vista. I was lucky enough to be in the know and got to be there for the whole fireworks show. AMAZING! I wasn't expecting such a beautiful display, but they did a spectacular show!

Then I partied wayyy to hard at the afterparty... we all got "kidnapped" to a big MS sponsored party in Fremont... so awesome. We all had a really good (and open-bar-trashy'd) time. Plus I get to be all gloating/doting friend and spew how proud I am of Elan for all of his hard work and game-makin' coolness. He has sacrificed a lot and works his ass off for his company, so I am always so glad to see it become more and more successful. He is da' bomb. :)

Here's some details about the game.
