Snow, And Neighbors

Snow has started to fall on Washington and, despite the fact that the roads are clear, I'm alone in the office. I've exhausted my supply of coffee...so now what? Suggestions? I won't have to keep myself busy for long. I'll head out before the roads actually do get bad.

Earlier this week, I accidentally started a series of posts about neighbors gone bad (that sounds like a Fox special or something). I was remiss in mentioning the porn neighbors. With that, I'll conclude the series.

The last place we lived, prior to becoming homeowners, was great - the apartment was gorgeous and the neighbors were all pretty cool. Well, except for the ones who shot porn in their place. You see, the ground floor, two bedroom apartment was occupied by two guys and a girl. The only furniture they seemed to own was a pool table and a bed. In the evenings a collection of guys and skanky, half-dressed girls would show up and start drinking on their porch. Eventually, once the sun set, most would move inside, shades were drawn and everything got quiet for a couple hours. Some guys and girls would camp out, smoking on the porch but "trade off" with people exiting the apartment (you know, like tag team wrestling with the high five and all). After a while, blinds and screen doors would open again and all would return to normal...for a couple of hours after which the whole process would be repeated. The next morning would find twenty or so people filing out of the apartment, bleary-eyed with crumpled clothing.

Isn't it obvious they were filming porn? What else could it have been?

at least they weren't loud [?]

What I am curious about is, how is it that you had time, or were so bored, that you actually watched what was going on, in and out, at their apartment? LOL

Sounds like porn. But then again, I am so naive I probably wouldn't have figured that out. I once lived (in a nice neighborhood mind you) next to a CRACK HOUSE. How did I find out? Ooooh, the twenty cop cars in the street and the story on the evening news. Nice.

As for Jade's comment above -- she should ask this question to my neighbors. They all gossip about you if you're grass is 1/4" too long. Heh. lol

ps. don't you hate it when you make a grammatical/spelling error in comments and can't edit? Ggrrr. lol

I'm thinking it's not a good sign for their porn careers if you couldn't hear anything in apartments constructed for college students.

As for what you can do to entertain yourself in the office...hmmm...here's a thought...come up with a list of 5 restaurant recommendations near the Convention Center area. Doesn't have to be super expensive...in fact, would prefer it not be...just good food that's not a chain.

They could have been playing all night Twister. lol When I was about 13, at my parents place, I used to have a neighbor who would invite guys over her place when her parents were gone and have a orgy in the kitchen. I discovered it one night when I was innocently looking out at the stars and looked down at their house because I heard a lot of ruckas, when I caught the action happening through the kitchen window. That was my introduction to sex, seeing my neighbor getting it from a line of guys. I didn't talk to her much after that because at that age sex was the grossest thing on earth, and any homemake cookies or cakes they sent over after that I could not eat for the life of me.

That must have been pretty wild living next door to that. I just shared another neighbor story myself. Check it out: Here

We're going to get blasted again with more snow tonight...fun, fun. Yay, maybe I'll be delayed going into work tomorrow. As for the Porn-o-thon...I have no comment. People are crazy!

Well one thing you could've done was knock on the door and pretended to be the plummer/cop/pizza guy or whatever. "Ooops, I've got the wrong apartment."

Then once you got your face on camera, let the royalty checks roll in. ;)

Okay, since you're the only one in the office, turn on some music and turn it up loud. You can dance around like a goof if you want to - no one's there to laugh. Shhh, we'll keep your secret.

As for the neighbors, it HAD to be porn filming. Yuck.

It does sound like porn, but porn is usually loud. Maybe they had some weird cult thing going on.

Dude! That WAS you checking us out! Small world. Mistee, Stormee, and Juan Hung Lo say hi, by the way.

Hey, you can make your porn name by putting together your Middle Name + Name of Street You Have Lived On. (I think it technically is "the street you've lived on the longest" but I am ignoring that rule in favor of the street that sounds the best.)

Mine is "Sabrina Shadow," which I think is pretty damn porny.

No fair...you always have interesting things going on. All we get is rain. And the only neighbor worth mentioning is someone I HATE HATE HATE because of their stupid dog that bit my son.

after college I moved to San Diego and was living in this condo in Pacific Beach. Our rooms and patio faced the condo building next door...

where, I kid you not, they filmed Bodybuilder Ninja Porn. Numchucks and all.

and here I thought the old man at one of my old complexes who did wood workinging a speedo on his patio was odd.

If not porn, then definitely pot.

Posted by: Anne at February 24, 2005 4:51 PM

perhaps it was a church meeting?

Posted by: lizabetty at February 24, 2005 6:09 PM

I always take whatever street sounds best for my "porn name" too. Ended up with Elizabeth Raven. I think I'd have to be a brunette for that though.

Posted by: Heather at February 24, 2005 8:39 PM

maybe you are jumping to conclusions...maybe it was a good old fashioned roman orgy.....
