This post is completely unrelated to the Owl City fireflies; because, no offense, I think Owl City is for fourteen year old girls. (But a lot of people like them- so don't be mad at me! eep!)
So a lot of people don't know this about me, but I actually lived in Kentucky until I was five. Yes sirrrrie.... Watching my childhood Christmas videos is the most entertaining thing. My favorite like comes from my older sister: "Oh Eyue Syee Ye Furgot to Light the Cayndles" is my best translation.
I really don't remember much about Kentucky except some of the neighbor kids, the lion and tiger wallpaper in the bathroom and catching fireflies on summer nights. If you've never lived in a place with fireflies let me tell you that this is a very magical thing. I haven't been anywhere since I was five that had these awesome bugs. But my dream wedding reception would have a huge white tent with fireflies floating around inside. (not gonna happen.)
For those of you lucky enough to live in a climate that sustains these creatures- enjoy it. Don't take it for granted. :)
(ps. these pics are from some Anime movie I think... not sure... I'm using them anyway. )
