    If the neighbor's want to play petty vengeance, let's go! The assholes left their floodlights on all night, so the dog started barking under my window at every leaf and twig at 530 AM. I did the most civil thing I could thing of at 530 AM after being awakened in a Nyquil induced haze and sprayed the fuck out of the dog with the hose in freezing weather. i wanted to sabotage their vehicles, kill the dog, or [most of all] kill the owners, but I decided to be polite and train their dog for them.
    Last night was blacked fish with pico and french fries. Hungry this morning because I didn't eat the tortillas that the fish was wrapped in (the amount of actual fish in those tacos was pretty damn piddly for a breastaurant.)

    I'm sure I am going to hell for this, but damn, that made me laugh.

    Sorry for the shitty wakeup Naiad, but wow, remind me not to piss you off.

    Honestly, if the owners weren't little chickenshits and would actually train their damn dog not to bark, we wouldn't have this problem. You seem like the kind of person to respond to a polite "Your dog woke me up at 3 AM barking under my window this morning, can you please train him not to," not hide in your house and not respond to any form of reason. Once or twice, or if the dog shuts itself up after so long, or even if the owners are trying, it doesn't bug me as bad and I will ignore it until it resolves itself. These assholes are the kinds of fuckheads that believe Fwuffy is ohsopwecious and must never ever be discipwined at all. They just don't care. I'm half a breath away from putting a brick through their big picture window or shooting out their damn floodlightss. Maybe sugaring their gas tanks. I just don't want to escalate the war.

    Well, I get up at 3 am so my neighbors should too, right?

    Luckily, our dog seldom barks, which is good because I believe dogs are like children and should be seen and not heard. Reason number 30 why I don't breed.

    I love my dog, but gheesh, wtf happened to common courtesy? I'd call the cops next time.

    I have enough kids for the both of us, but I have to tell you that if you are anything in real life like you are on the MDA, then you would make the most awesome daddy, canio.

    Awww. That is very nice of you to say

    I am actually shooting for 'cool uncle' but that would require my brother or sisters to get the ball rolling.

    Hey naiad!

    I wanted to come to your place and say thanks for that offer to do lessons with us! At the moment, we are good, but if it is okay, can I take you up on that in a few months if it comes up??

    I had to laugh out loud at the dog wash, too... and I actually like animals.

    Re engineers - my best friend is the current "Director, Capital Projects" for the town of Leesburg VA. Lady went to school and got her degree in geotechnical engineering, then went and worked for ODOT (the OH Dept of Transportation), just like her daddy. Then she got sick, sick, sick of ODOT and left the state for the South. I remember when she went to Norway to learn all about landslides, and when she came to visit me while I was still living in Germany the woman didn't take pics of the pretty scenery - she took pics of each and every road construction and skyscraper building site we came across. She was so funny - for two weeks every other sentence was "Crabbcakes, do you SEE that!?!? That is called a blah-blah-blah and they are not normally used/done that way in the US! Here is how it works (explanation follows...)! I can't wait to show my engineering friends this!"

    And it is not Third's week... She started puking in the wee hours if this morning. When it rains...

    I want the opportunity to be the "cool aunt" but am happy with getting Hulky's nephews and niece by marriage. I'm terrified of what might happen if my sister spawned but I think I could be an awesomely corrupting force.

    Ooh! One more story (yeah, I gab)...

    On that NPR radio show Car Talk a long time ago, there was this caller who wanted to know if catalytic converters blew up, like on their own, just as you start a car. Long story short, the caller had recently gotten a new neighbor, and was kinda being a dick (the caller, not the new neighbor) and the new neighbor just happened to be a retired Navy ordnance specialist. Ummm... Car Talk guys impressed upon the dick caller the need to be nice to the noob.

    Moral of the story - everybody needs an ordnance guy (or gal) as a friend.
