annoyed

current mood: annoyed

It is 1 am. Here is what I have been hearing outside my window for the last half hour:

RING-A-LING, VERY VERY LOUDLY: "...so my roommates are like TOTAL ALCOHOLICS and they get drunk like ALL THE TIME, and I don't mind so much I mean like because I get drunk sometimes too, right? But they get drunk like ALL THE TIME, and they're REALLY LOUD and sometimes, like? They're naked. I'm not shitting you, they come home and they just STRIP in the middle of the apartment and I'm like HELLO?! Like, I don't NEED to SEE that, mkay? So then I have to get them dressed and they're all -
[SFX: In rapid succession, we hear a ::skrinch::, a ::crsh:: and a squeal of tires.]
CAR ALARM 1: WEEOO WEEOO WEEOO WEEOO WEEOO WEEOO WEEOO WEEOO
CAR ALARM 2: WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH
RING-A-LING, hollering, presumably to the car alarms: Hey, SHUT THE FUCK UP!
RANDOM GUY IN OTHER APARTMENT: YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP!
RING-A-LING: HEY! SHUT UP YOUR FUCKING CAR!
RANDOM GUY: IT'S NOT MY FUCKING CAR!
RANDOM GUY 2 IT'S MY CAR! Hold on -
RING-A-LING: SHUT IT THE FUCK UP!
RANDOM GUY 1 OR 2: YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP!
RING-A-LING: FUCK YOU!
CAR ALARM 1: ::falls silent::
CAR ALARM 2: WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH
RING-A-LING: FUCK!
A BUNCH OF DRUNK COLLEGE GUYS: ::are passing by::
A BUNCH OF DRUNK COLLEGE GUYS: ::start mimicking both Ring-a-ling and the car alarm::
ONE DRUNK COLLEGE GUY: WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH
ANOTHER DRUNK COLLEGE GUY: Oh my GAHD, like shut the fuck UP!
YET ANOTHER DRUNK COLLEGE GUY, whom I eventually concluded was laughing: Eh-HOOH! Eh-HOOH! Eh-HOOH HOOH HOOH HOOH
STILL ANOTHER DRUNK COLLEGE GUY: Ah, man, I don't feel so -
DRUNK COLLEGE GUY #764: Oh, no, man, don't -
STILL ANOTHER DRUNK COLLEGE GUY: ::vomiting noises::
DRUNK COLLEGE GUY #764: Oh, man, NOT ON THE SUBARU! NOT ON THE FUCKING SUBARU, MAN!
CAR ALARM 2: WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH WAAH
YET ANOTHER DRUNK COLLEGE GUY: Eh-HOOH! Eh-HOOH! Eh-HOOH!
KYLIE: ::buries her head under the pillow and prays for the apocalypse::

That's life in a student ghetto for you, I guess.

eh, it happens. Since I couldn't sleep anyway, it's kind of been amusing me.

...well, only kind of. Heh.

Breaking news: a bunch of drunk girls outside are having an animated discussion about whether they would sleep with Spiderman or not, and why.

Oh, my. I would go on a homicidal rampage. My nextdoor neighbor to the right is a police officer. We live really close to a university, but because he drives his police car home, we don't have any problems. My neighbor to the left, however, once kept me up until one in the morning because he had drunk sorority girls squealing all night long. I started to call the other neighbor who is also the courtesy officer here, but I figured that wouldn't be very nice. Besides, I'm sure I've woken someone up once or twice with my super loud television.

Let's just say, the adhesive properties of Spider-Man's skin extend to his *entire* body.

Yeah, no.

If by no you mean YES, TOTALLY, OMG.

Dude, it's Spider-Man, not Lionel Richie!!

look, if loving a man with some arachnid properties is wrong... I don't want to be right.

Don't tell Jamie though. He's terrified of spiders. This would be a double whammy.

"not on the Subaru"

Ok, that was totally hysterical, mostly because I know how true it is. This is why anyone over 30 should be allowed to have a tazer, specifically for instances like this.

Dude.

This Ring-A-Ling person sounds ... crazy. And annoying.

I think, even after three years away, I could still recite, from memory, the entire car alarm script.

Have you ever heard the bit by Dane Cook, where he writes asong for the car alarms? It's the greatest.

All of a sudden, outside, you hear a car alarm going off for forty-six minutes! I love it. I get inspired. I walk around my house. I even made lyrics for the alarm sound. Now everytime I hear it, I stand on my bed and go:

Hellllloooooooooooo, I'm a caaaaaaaaaaarrrr... gasoline makes me run, back seat! Trunk space! Helllloooooo, let's go for a riiiiddeee, oil is my blood! Seat belts! Radio knobs!

...I don't care if you laughed at that or not, but next time you hear that shit, you're going to think, That Dane Cook is a silly bitch."

I am laughing my ASS off. Sorry, I feel your pain, I really do (I share a building with a buncha students) but the "NOT ON THE SUBARU!" line just made me piss myself. May I metaquote?

Surely, if you'd like. :)

Dude, I live *on* a college campus and it's not *nearly* that bad here. Actually, we have more problems with noise from the neighbors back home (Brighton) than we do from the two or three frats in the next building here (not to mention all the ordinary college kids in *both* buildings). Which I guess is only to be expected, seeing as Brighton is the meeting spot for two or three rapidly-growing colleges...it *used* to be a nice quiet residential area...

I live in the actual ghetto, where, unfortunately, the crazy 2 a.m. drunks are not nearly as amusing. Although the gauntlet of 5 p.m. drunks that I have to walk by to get into my building can be good for a laugh on occasion.

You know, when i hear local birdsong at night, it's actual birds, rather than car alarms...

Then again, this is why 50% of my monthly income goes to rent *sigh*

You win some, you lose some.

The "Not on the Subaru!" killed me.

And to think that I was merely irritated by an ice-cream truck.
