midnight at the oasis send your camel to bed
<---Another sticky, sweaty day yesterday. UGH!!
Mr. G was watching some old eps of Enterprise with Scott Bakula.
I said, "How does his hair stay dark? He's in his 50's. He's gotta be grey by now. What does he use? Just For Men In Space? "
I'm thinking the LazyBoy couch and chair were probably the worst things we ever bought as far as Mr. G is concerned. Now he can't even make it through a
6 p.m. show without falling asleep. At least with the old couch he was so uncomfortable, it kept him awake till at least 9.
My neighbor is a HUGE pain in the ass! The neighbor that lived two lots up used to put his lawn chair in the back yard and watch our place for most of the afternoon. I tried not to let it bother me when I was out hanging laundry or doing yard work, but it drove Mr. G crazy. When the neighbor in between us decided to build his garage in the back yard across from our place, the only GOOD thing was it that blocked the view of the other neighbor. So now the garage is facing our living room window where I sit and work on my laptop. It's just across the street, several hundred feet away. The neighbor recently lost his job, and now his favorite past time is setting up a frigging lawn chair in the garage pointed directly at our place. It's ten times worse than the other neighbor because he's so much closer. When it's really hot like this, I like to walk around in my exercise clothes, which consists of my stretch pants and black workout bra. Do you know how many times I've walked into the living room to find him staring at my damn window? Even though I have curtains, sheers AND shade film on the window, I have no idea how much he can or can't see, so I'm immediately having to back out of the room and put on a shirt. And let's not even talk about how many times I've walked out of the shower naked and into the living room to find him there. UGH!! I'm sure the view is no prettier for him than it is for me, but damn it, he needs to park his ass on his deck, which faces the OTHER neighbor. When they weren't home at different times, I've had Mr. G walk over and see if he can see me at the table, and some times he can't see me at all, other times he can see me clearly. I guess it depends on how the sun hits that window. I had the table pulled forward because I enjoyed the view--before his bulky garage there was nothing but wooded areas--and I even pulled it back behind the curtain so I had more privacy. I won't even start my damn Tae Bo unless his garage doors are closed because I don't want people staring at me while I'm exercising and bouncing up a storm. I just feel like my privacy is being invaded, and I'm one step away from closing the curtains permanently, and I hate to do that because that leaves me with no view.
Yippee! It rained like hell yesterday and the humdittity finally broke.
