AAAAAwesome (or not)

Posted by on Jun 30 2007 | Tagged as: The Zoo  

I’m very sad to report that the Home Zoo now has an Animal House as our new neighbors. The apartment across the hall has been empty for months. They gave it the typical tacky marble everything renovation. Given that it’s a 3 bedroom and likely to be out of control expensive we were figuring it would attract some 20 something nogoodnik party types with suburban parents to guarantee it.

Last night we started to hear the door slam shut several times. After awhile every time the door opened we would hear a loud group “Woooooooooo”. As the night went on it got more rowdy, at one point I heard a girl yell “I LOOOOOOVE this place!!!”. We heard several loud and heartfelt “AWWWWWWWWW-sommmme!!!”s and many, many “Woooooo!!”s. Just now as I’m typing I heard a “Woooooo!” and responded back with one!

We’re guessing they got up around 10ish because that’s when we started to hear a few more “Woooo!!”s. Apparently they can only communicate by yelling. At one point last night as I was walked in the bathroom I noticed a reflection out the window on the window of the building next door. It was the new neighbors, several large jock-y guys chugging beer, standing in front of their gigantic flat screen TV, Wooooing and grunting at a sporting event.

I’m hoping that The Lady, in addition to being the Drunk Whisperer, is also the Annoying Neighbor Whisperer. Astute with understanding animals and beasts of all kinds, she pointed out that we don’t want to start out on the wrong foot with them as it very easily could become a source of amusement for them to “annoy us”. Duuuuuuude!!!! She’s always been good with animals, we’ll see! (Wish us luck… Woooooooooo!!!!!!!).

The captain has had an ongoing semi-nasty ear wax situation. We’ve been taking him to the vet to get some squirts that have been drying it up.

I’ve noticed that his eyes look a little lop-sided. The one on the side with the waxy ear in particular. The pupil even seems a little fixed. I’m starting to wonder if he’s either lost or is loosing vision in it. I believe this is a possibility with diabetes, which he has.

We’ll have to have the vet look in to it this week when he goes in for his next squirt.

The Case of the Missing Tomato

“Did you eat my tomato?” asked The Lady. “No”, I said with a little attitude “Why?”. “It’s missing.” she replied. “Are you sure YOU didn’t eat it?” I asked back. “No, I bought two.”

This fascinating discussion went on for a few more sentences. I suggested that she look in Ernie’s “office” (pile of towels) given his history as Fruit Marauder (and that a tomato is technically a fruit, as The know-it-all Lady handily pointed out like a 12 year old teacher’s pet).

No sign of the missing tomato in the “office” (pile of towels). Later that day I received an email from The Lady reporting that she found the remaining seeds in the “office” (pile of towels). Case solved.
