I had an interesting encounter last night with one of the people who just moved into the house across the street from me. A guy knocked on my door around 8pm to ask if I had a phone because he needed to call an ambulance to come pick him up...because he was hearing voices. He said "they" might send him to Abilene or Samarkand (I may have heard that second one wrong), but whether he meant EMS or his little voices, I'm not sure. I politely sent him back across the street, called 911, and turned the whole weird problem over to the police and EMS. Yikes....
Earlier in the day, I heard a screaming argument from that same house (the weather was gorgeous, so I had all the windows open). Lots of F- and MF-bombs flung about, never mind the kids who live in that house now, or the kids next door, or the kids who live in the other houses on this street.... The screaming bitch in question eventually left, and peace reigned once more.
Last Thursday when these folks moved in, I drove home from work to the sight of one fool with his butt hanging entirely out of his pants. Yes, he had boxers on under the jeans, but really...! He was leaning in the window of a car talking to somebody and the waistband of his jeans was level with the ground. Wonderful--I have trashy new neighbors.
Trashy, scary new neighbors.
Here's hoping they default on the rent, and that right soon.
I was cleaning my boss's house, for some reason. As I remarked in the dream, "I don't know why I'm cleaning your house when mine needs it, too." And, lordy, was she a slob! There were dirty glasses on every surface, dirty clothes draped all over the furniture, and other crap all over the floor. Looked like she never put anything away. (In reality, she's not at all like that!) At one point, I took her laundry to the laundromat, carried it over to the row of washing machines, and found a kitten asleep inside each washer! Guess that shows that, even asleep, my mind never strays too far from the kitties. I took kittens out of two of the washers, cuddled them up to my face, then started the laundry. That's all I remember.
