A heart-shaped helium balloon just floated right past my (3rd floor) bedroom window and carried right on along above the street outside.

It was beautiful.

a squirrel just fell off the roof of my house past my window...I think it set the tone for my 2006.
freekstreet Posted 12 years ago. Edited by freekstreet (member) 12 years ago
Whoa! I have an even better one...some large woman was just staring in my window...then she ran away when I looked out the window... I wonder what that says about 2006 ~ It's gonna be a big one?

(and this one is true.)

damn, I should have chased her...Just a note to her:
Feel free to look in my windows, I don't mind.

ok - this one time - there was a bus strike in Los Angeles and I was driving east on Santa Monica Blvd. and I stopped at the red light and there was a bus bench right there on the corner and there was an old lady sittin' there. She gets up and comes over to my car and motions for me to roll down the window and then she asks me for a ride , as she's opening the door and gettin in. So ,ok, i'll do a favor and give the pushy old ukranian woman a ride
so maybe 20 blocks later she says that she wants to get out , sort of "this is my stop" - so I feel fairly good about giving her a lift.
Then a few days later the bus strike is over and I don't have my car, musta been in the shop. So i go to a bus stop to wait for a bus to take me to campus. but the stike is only just over, so the buses are still very uncertain. But I must get to campus ! then drives by, a minivan that takes disabled people around to places- and there's nobody in it. somehow the driver and I make eye contact and then he pulls over to me at the bus stop and asks do i need a ride. Yes ! I do. - so he gives me a ride.

once years ago my mother was driving through the city where she was working at the time, and she stopped at some traffic lights. A woman she recognised as the mother of a colleague walked over, and got into the back seat, and told my mum where she lived, and that she wanted to go home. Mum thought this was very odd, but she's a bit of a pushover sometimes so she drove the woman home, then went on her own way.

The next day at work, she didn't say anything cos she didn't know how to bring it up, and this woman's daughter comes in a little flustered, and tells a story about how her mother had been to the dentist's the day before, and was still a little doped up when she left, and she thought she'd got a taxi home but a few hours later had realised it was just some random car. They were all really freaked out and couldn't get over that some random had just taken her home for free. The woman had no idea it was my mum.

Even though I have a hangover and feel a bit cynical, i really like these stories.
When my head works i'll dredge my memory for something nice and smiley.
betsymartian 12 years ago
you? hung over? surely not.
maddog. 12 years ago
Ok, I'm lying.
A rat ate my brain.
And my liver.
betsymartian 12 years ago
does it want my pancreas? It's no use to me any more.
maddog. 12 years ago
No, it's dead. I jumped up and down on it until it's innards decorated the walls.

Then I ate it. Warm.

betsymartian 12 years ago
you know what they say about the hair of the rat that ate your brain and your liver...
mlizzy 12 years ago
betsy - that was nice of your mum to give that lady a ride. i wonder did she get any karmic payback for her good deed ?
betsymartian 12 years ago
yeah, she got me for a daughter

Betsy. Have you been posting this elsewhere?
*spanks*
betsymartian Posted 12 years ago. Edited by betsymartian (member) 12 years ago
I posted this here first, of course I thought of all of you, then I thought, well that was a load of sentimental claptrap, so I thought I should also post it to the sentimental claptrap group.

Do you have a problem with that?

Now you may continue spanking.

this one time - we were getting out of the car and it had been raining so in the gutter there was water with worms , earth worms in the gutter. he saw them and picked them out of the water and put them back on the grass so they wouldn't drown and they could get back into the earth.
tha's when i knew i loved him.
betsymartian 12 years ago
so he's standing there all like "I got worms" and your heart melts?
mlizzy Posted 12 years ago. Edited by mlizzy (member) 12 years ago
actually he did it very matter of factly just an everyday worm savior - he didn't make a show of it at all -that's the endearing part - he just thought it was the right thing to do- for the worms. I don't think it was calculated on his part ......
* hmmm.....
has this all been a sham ? all these years ?
betsymartian 12 years ago
awwwww

if a man did that on a date with me, picked up worms from the gutter... he wouldn't be laying his hands on me til I'd seen him wash them repeatedly.
mlizzy 12 years ago
oh yes- most definetly ! clean hands a must !

MEN- CLEAN HANDS !
maddog. 12 years ago
Er...
betsymartian 12 years ago
I bet maddog's got filth ingrained in his skin, I bet he's not cleanable.
mlizzy 12 years ago
tho - i spose the same should go for Gals.

WOMEN - CLEAN HANDS !

tho maybe men don't care if a woman has clean hands - as long as she's got hands
betsymartian 12 years ago
I don't think they're that bothered, as long as if she doesn't have hands, she's very skilled with some other body part to make up for it.

I've got two woodpeckers hammering away just outside my window and the noise is both driving me nuts and turning me on. I'd take a photo of them if I owned a camera.
mlizzy 12 years ago
turned on by woodpeckers ?
is it the rythmic beat ?
mlizzy 12 years ago
what would turn you on more ?
woodpeckers ?
or
handless women ?
maddog. 12 years ago
Or dishwashing liquid?
various zoo [deleted] 12 years ago
are the women only handless or missing other parts as well? Have they learned to use their nubs?

What color is the dishwashing liquid? I'm partial to one color only. I'll be a tease and not reveal the color. Okay, it's not blue or green. It's not yellow either. It's orange. How did you guys trick me into telling?!
mlizzy 12 years ago
we're clever that way.
various zoo [deleted] 12 years ago
Well, don't ask me anymore questions you hooligans!
maddog. 12 years ago

I'm only nice to women when I'm on my meds.

I only drink when I'm on meds... I don't know if I'm nice or not...probably.

I hate when I forget if I've taken my meds and so I take another dose, and then I get really loopy and do stupid things like chase squirrels and put my pants on backwards.

My drugs make me stop hallucinating. I hate them. Chucked them out the window the other day.

Five hours later, I saw this lovely balloon wafting up up up outside my window, with a sheep attached making love to a kangaroo.

And I don't even HAVE a window.

What's a window? I have to type with my teeth as someone helped me on with my new white jacket and they put it on back to front and now I can't move my arms! Oh how we laughed......
