|11:07 pm - It's that time of the year.|
Five things for which I am thankful:
- My friends and family.
- The fact that I have a roof over my head.
- The job which pays for said roof.
- The standard of living afforded me by when and where I live.
- The hard "G" sound, without which the names Jerry and Gary would be nearly indistinguishable.
Five things for which I am less so:
- Coming home from a lovely Thanksgiving with the family to find a car taking up two parking spots in front of our house.
- Finding out that the mail wasn't delivered on Wednesday (the second time this week) because the car was in the way.
- Finding out that our recycling wasn't picked up on Wednesday because the car was in the way.
- The fact that our recycling has been picked up only once since the first week of September because a car -- never one of ours -- has been in the way every Wednesday morning.
- I don't know. Hangnails, I guess.
Current Mood: thankful
Current Music: Modest Mussorgsky -- Pictures at an Exhibition
Leave dirty messages in vaseline on the windshied of the aforementioned car. Oh, and call the cops. That's some namby-pamby bullpoo!
I'd like to do the vasaline thing, but I'm worried that it's somebody who lives in the neighborhood, and this strikes me as a bad neighborhood to do that kind of stuff in. I bet if you actually vandalized somebody's property here, they'd be more likely to retaliate at who they think did it than to call the cops.
And unfortunately, I don't think they're actually illegally parked, unless maybe they're too close to the mailbox. They do move their car every now and then, so I can't call the police and say it's abandoned.
I would always be worried that the person owning said car would come around the corner right as I was starting and beat the crap out of me...it could happen.
I see you know our neighborhood.
You gotta love that hard g, the hard k sound is also cool.
Oh, man. I forgot about the hard K. Tom, I'm deputizing you to remind me to give props to the letter K next Thanksgiving.
Also, Mussorgsky? Rocks. Quite hard.
In that case, I'm working on something you may be interested in. Or maybe not. But in any case, I am working on it, and it will soon be discussed in more detail when I either finish it or give up on it.
I don't know which to root for finish or give up.
I believe the correct expression is "finish or get off the pot."
