You Scream, I Scream

November 27th, 2005

I really should feel bad about how I cranked up some emo tunage for three eardrum- busting hours this afternoon. Emo is an acquired taste, you see, and it’s likely that my neighbors do not appreciate the sad, screechy vocals of skinny, floppy-haired, 17-year-old boys as much as I do…

But come to think of it, maybe I’m wrong.

I mean, judging from the ruckus going on upstairs at the ungodly hour of 1 am this morning, my neighbors are HUGE emo fans. I don’t know if skinny boys were involved, but I’m fairly certain there was some disheveled hair, as a libidinous lady, and her (apparently very skilled) lover participated in a high-pitched hootinany.

Yes, Suzy GetSumBooty was at it again…

and again…

and again.

Seriously, I couldn’t get to sleep until like 2 am, and even then I felt like I needed a shower and some cuddling first.
In other news, I nearly cut my off my finger while slicing a butternut squash.

It has been bleeding for hours.

That means, if I do not write tomorrow, I am a) dead from loss of blood, b) having a difficult time typing with the stumpy remains, or c) am pissed off and pouting because I am on a veggie fast, which is what landed thumbkin on the chopping block in the first place.

    Don’t get mad, get even. Where’s Angel??

  2. Hänni Says:

    mrtl - Angel’s out of town with his Papasan.

  3. ScottyGee Says:

    Cabana Boy at your service! I mean… Hehehee.

    I hope your mutant healing factor kicks in for that finger. If not, listen to some emo and wallow in your fingerly misery.


  4. Dima Says:

    Fine Hanni, Angel out of town? Get even without Angel!

  5. stampydurst Says:

    Who knew squash was such a dangerous vegetable. I saw a squash slicing injury in the ER this afternoon (non-operative). We should start a petition for the vegetable growers of America asking for an appropriate warning label on this insidious gourd. Oooh! That’s a great band name…Insidious Gourd.

  6. Hänni Says:

    Scottygee - You’re alive! Sending good thoughts your way darling hannihaus PA. Finger looks freakay this morning. Mutant is right!

    Dima - Oh touche!

    Stampydurst - Good to know i’m not the only idiot who can’t properly weild a knife around squash. And yes, if I had a band, I would totally steal your name.

  7. Sassy8877 Says:

    New reader of your blog - great fun!! Thanks :)

  8. Von Krankipantzen Says:

    I have a humpy neighbour like that. Ew! Hope the fingie feels better soon.

  9. Hänni Says:

    Sassy8877 - Glad to meetcha.

    von krankipantzen - Finger is no longer bleeding, but I have taken to calling it Ms. Jackson, cause it’s nasty.

  10. Sophie Konstantine Says:

    And I remember the days when you mocked emo. Then when you started to like it you called it “Art Rock.”

    You’re so hilarious Hänni.

    I await the post about other late night adventures after the theater…



  11. Hänni Says:

    Sophie - Ok, busted! I remember all those long talks we had about how I wouldn’t listen to Bright Eyes because it was too emo. BTW art rock is real, i swear it.

  12. Amanda B. Says:

    I had an upstairs neighbor like that once. It was just horrifying. Of course, I was single at the time and wasn’t engaging in said activity- so that didn’t help.

  13. miss marisol Says:

    Wait a minute…veggie fast? So, like, no Easy Bake Hostess Cupcakes.

  14. Hänni Says:

    Amanda B - Yes celibacy in the face of those who scream “Spank my ass” at midnight is a scary prospect.

    Miss marisol - Yes, I’m on a veggie fast. The Nutrition Nazi must practice what she preaches (and also cleanse her body of the cheese whiz laden broccoli casserole she ate way too much of over the holidays).
