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!!!!!!!).
