i have one neighbor with four members. everyone of them slams the car door. or they sit and rev the car for 15 min.

then i have one in back, that drags his large trash cans out to the front at 11 pm. then he drags them back at 11 pm the next day.

some people just don't think of their neighbors

babe

I couldn't agree more, babe. I'm so quiet, noone knows I live here. They ask "Have you been out of town?" Next, they start dragging shopping carts over the concrete all weekend long. Don't even get me started on all the car alarms going off at any given time.

I have jetlag (STILL) so I'm usually up at 4am---well, that beats the 2am let's be wide and awake call that I had been responding to.......there's a 13 hour time difference between Houston and K. Then last week was spent in the LA area and that's a 2 hour time difference .........so my body is pretty much ping ponging right now.......

That, my friend, is an issue to be taken up with her employers. Take it up with mine, too. I'm at work by 6:10am. And that...is just a big bowl of wrong, if you ask me.

Trust me, I'm not thinking of it. I'm usually off in lala land, dreaming of bon bons and foot massages.

I always set the alarm clock, but always beat it by just minutes. It's freaky. I think I beat it because it gives me a heart attack when it goes off.
So I get up, (between 3 am and 5 am) turn off the ceiling fan, tell "weiner dog", "good morning good morning, good morning world", step up the coffee and hit start, put the dog leash on "weiner dog", walk, get eatin by mosquitos, come home, light cigarette, make the pot of coffee into a whole pot of - with sugar and cream added, put ice in glass, pour coffee onto ice, drink to test, fix or not, then put pot in fridge, put out cigarette that I haven't smoked, curse myself, and begin my day.

no lie......I don't need an alarm clock even with jetlag......my body is programmed to wake up......my son's alarm is so annoying upstairs that I want to strangle him........and he doesn't get up until 30 minutes later.......then I really want to strangle him.......I have learned to set my cell phone's alarm when traveling overseas.......you can't trust all hotels either..........
