’tis the Season!

This is classic. Pretty much the definition of cray-cray. I can only hope that the photo does it justice.

Okay, so we leave tonight for our walk and I notice that our neighbor has put some weird little doll thing up against her window. It’s either crying or playing hide-and-seek or simply creeping me out in some way.

Click for full effect.

I’m in shock, as I don’t really understand why this thing is here… but neighborlady has lots of crap on the patio, so I guess it could just be one of those things. (I seem to have a karmic path that puts me near neighbors who have the need to store broken wicker furniture and dead plants in abundance on our shared patio area.)

Okay, so I ask Keith as we leave the garden area, “What is that doll ABOUT?!? What is she doing with that?!?” Keith says, “Maybe she’s preparing for Halloween.” I say, “It’s too early for Halloween!” To which Keith replies, “Well, it’s never too early for cray-zee.”

Excellent point from my beloved.

PS — Breakdown for three short films went out today. Breakdown for a play goes out Friday. Holy bejeebus, I’m a busy bee. Woo! I am technically about six hours behind on all obligations thus far, but I think that’s still considered acceptable, considering the pace at which I usually deliver and the expectations “normal” people seem to have.

PPS — Is the rule at MySpace that you should change your photo like every other day or something? Are we supposed to ignore all bulletins? I’m really having trouble keeping up with the rules over there.

    My rule for bulletins on MySpace is that I read them and pass on the ones I like and ignore the others.
    And I rarely change my photo on MySpace.
    And I think neighbor lady is trying to be cute, but failing miserably.

    Okay, Diva, you’re probably right. She’s trying to be cute. But… HOW is she trying to be cute? HOW is a little doll thingy looking into a window “cute” to anyone?
    I mean, I get stuff like “We don’t swim in your toilet, so don’t pee in our pool” signs. But this?? Not so much!
    Thanks for the word on the bulletins. I haven’t had a chance to read more than one or two of them, and I’m OCD enough to believe I’d need to go back and read them ALL if I were really gonna “do it” right. 😉

    Bon, how much do you love that one of the main characters in my new play is the “crazy neighbor lady” who has mannequins in all her windows? Swear to god.
    And, ignore all bulletins. Change your photos as often as you see fit (I myself just downgraded from my classic 12 to 8, I guess feeling like 8 is way more “I’m not obsessed with myself”…)
    But since I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new pic, I’m keeping it for a long time, I think.
    Sometimes if I end up flirting with a boy on MySpace I will default to a “hot” pic for my default pic.
    But my pic right now is a “Babes” pic, for sure. Like, priceless. And incredibly recent.
    Congrats on your successes! Hopefully in ten years I will be too freakin’ busy getting paid to do stuff I love to return e-mails, or check blogs…!!!

    MySpace has rules?

    Eeeeeeeewww, yuckola!!!!!

    That’s funny about the mannequins…one of my close friends keeps mannequins in her living room. But she also collects anything to do with Tim Burton. She has an entire room in her house dedicated to Nightmare Before Christmas. And she also thinks Marilyn Manson is one of the sexiest men on Earth.

    The one thing I really don’t like about MySpace…I want to leave comments on someone’s pic and I can’t because I am not their Friend.
    So when you see Subhash, tell him he looked damn hot with the longer hair…THANKS!

    Comment from David, “Maybe she has a midget fetish.”

    Bon, if you go to the average hot rod show, more often than not you’ll see one or more of these things leaning on a car. A display thing, I suppose, but I don’t get it, either.
    I even saw one once with the hood slammed down on the cute li’l bugger’s head. (ya had to be there!) (No, I was there, and I still didn’t get it!).

  10. Anna July 6, 2006 at 11:02 pm

    Well, if she’s gonna leave the damn thing on the walkway, you’re gonna put a sign over it that says “Free Dummy.”

    OMG! You ALL have me in stitches! Your comments are priceless tonight.
    Bon, do what you have time to do. MySpace is YOUR space. Do with it what you will. I look at bulletins when I have the time. Of course discriptive subject lines are our friend. Wish everyone would use them more intelligently.
    I keep the same photo for perhaps too long but, who’s counting anyway? Eh, maybe I’ll change it again soon.
    I once saw a car at a stop light that had an arm and a leg sticking out of the trunk with a sign that said. “Ex-wife in trunk” Now THAT was freakin’ hilarious! Of course, it would have been funnier if it said ex-husband but… ;P

    Oh! And how cute IS Shoebox in that picture?! I was going to comment on that myself! Rawr! Go Shoe! Teehee!

    If someone’s going to use life-like dummies like that, they need to get a bit more creative. Like the wife in the trunk deal, or maybe a dummy hanging off the front of a large transport truck, like the truck failed to stop and some unlucky guy is hanging for his life from the front grill. (Of course that has the potential of inviting unwanted interest from the boys in blue.)
    Creepiest dummies I’ve ever seen: down the street is a flower shop, run by a most amazing and creepy woman, who sits in her chair all day and does all transactions and advice from there. Ok she’s not the dummy but get this: she has very creepy looking cats all over her shop. They’re quite lifelike, and makes me wonder if maybe they were at once alive and are now stuffed. And of course they’re in various poses. I love cats but these make me want to go home, have a long shower, and then break out the holy water and crucifix.
