things been so crazy

it's been a weird and hectic week around here -- after getting conked on the head, we had a crazy rush deadline, I ended a long-time working relationship, Evan got sick, our deadline got lifted, we celebrated Evan's birthday, I got sick, we saw a hit-and-run accident (no-one badly hurt, luckily) which was scary, and to top it all off...

I woke up late at night to get some water and heard a drunk guy yelling in the street. As I got close to the window, I realized he was reciting Bob Dylan lyrics, and after every few lines would say "Thank you, Bob!". Suddenly, he asked the world "What was that song he won the Oscar for?! Didn't he win an Oscar?!" And when no answer was forthcoming he said "Oh, who cares, anyway!", proceeded to curse Dylan out and ended with the statement "I mean, you ain't no Johnny Cash, that's for sure!!". Then, all was quiet.

That was probably one of the biggest wtf moments of my life. I only wish I could have seen the guy, but it's probably better that I didn't.

    That's AWESOME!!!!! See, your brand of lunatic is much better than ours.
    Last month we had our neighbors arguing over who had OCD worse (no kidding) and then yesterday they woke up at the crack of dawn to have a meltdown about how they injected blueberries with chromium or acid or acidic chromium to make them bluer (once agaun, no kidding).
    At least your dude had both musical and movie knowledge! (It was for the theme song to "Wonder Boys", by the by... "Things Have Changed"... in case he comes back for an encore).

  2. i know crazy drunks yelling in the street can be disturbing, but i could not help but laugh out loud at this :) Old Bob is, indeed, no Johnny Cash! hahaha!
    Hope everything is settling down for you!!!

  3. What a week! And on top of being hit in the head with a chunk o' ceiling!
    I hope things are calmer now.
    And I loved the story about the drunk dude.
