Who missed me?

I’m sitting at my new kitchen table in my new apartment in an old house on an ex-farm in a far bigger hellhole than the one I lived in a few weeks ago. It’s nowhere near big enough to justify fear of terrorism or those little signs warning you to beware of pickpockets and thieves, but it is big enough to have more than one mall.

I can theoretically go shopping whenever I feel like it. That can’t be good for me, considering that when it comes to shopping, I have the self restraint of a psychotic monkey.

There are people living on my roof. Four of them. Well, they’re not actually on my roof, but on the floor above mine. I can hear every little noise they make. I know that one of them whinnies like an overexcited horse on regular intervals, and I wonder if he’s the same one who sounds like a cow with some horrible disease when he’s having sex. I suppose I shouldn’t ask.

Classes on scientific research methods have started, and it turns out that I’m a geek. I shudder at the thought of how my courses in microbiology and genetics might leave my social life in ruing once they begin, seeing how I’m utterly engrossed by models of dispersions and project design. Not to mention completely riveted, wrapped up, fascinated, captivated and engaged.

I have a thesaurus, I do.

And Pooch has a boyfriend. He lives across the yard, and she goes to play with him three times a day. Morning, afternoon and night. They’ve become quite close, but not yet to the point where she’ll let him sniff her bottom. But now he’s made the mistake of going camping with his family. Pooch looked for him every day for the first week and then she noticed that golden retriever next door…

So I guess Pooch has two boyfriends. But I have a thesaurus, I do.

Ahhhh, that's why I can't share my house. I need things quiet!

Hageltoast said...

yay!! glad you are back and enjoying class. neighbours are the worset, when we eventually move i don't care if we buy a hovel as long as we don't have to share a wall with anyone.

I have missed you and appreciate the new visual/audial images of your new place.

I do love a microbiologist, so you're no geek at all.

Don't worry, your boyfriends will be better looking than Pooch's.

"I know that one of them whinnies like an overexcited horse on regular intervals, and I wonder if he’s the same one who sounds like a cow with some horrible disease when he’s having sex". Now there's a frightening image if ever I heard one... Your new hellhole may be bigger but it seems just as bizarre as the last one... By the way welcome back.

Are pooch's boyfriends fixed? If not you'll eventually be a grandma!!! Lucky you.

I'm looking forward to all the bizarre new hellhole stories. At least you don't have anyone wandering aournd on a tractor strung with Christmas lights.

Do pooch's boyfriends eat bees, too?

Welcome back ChooChoo, I've missed you :)

Freak Magnet said...

Your dog is such a bitch. Get it? Female Dog? Bitch? ha ha ha ha ahahahahaha!!! I crack myself up.

And now I'm going to worry about what noises I make during sex. If I ever get to have it again.

Freak Magnet said...

Oh, and I missed you and all that other crap.

I, for one, sound totally hot during sex and not at all like a stray dog stuck under a semi truck.

Tom - pooch is very happy. This place is full of stuff that she hasn't sniffed yet, including the golden retrievers butt.

Nefty - I do too... So it does get a bit annoying.

Toasty - I hear ya.

Jocelyn - phew, that's a relief.

Lively - and hopefully a bit smarter...

Big brother - and I choose to see the bizarre in everything.

Jazz - there would definitly be a blog in that...

Ticknart - I wouldn't be surprised.

Rain - thanks, hon:)

Freak magnet - hehehehehehehe

Mist1 - and hopefully your partners aren't anything like semi trucks.
