City Livin'

Here's the thing...Living in The Big City is kinda weird. We don't know any of our neighbors. I never have. It's like, everyone is living on top of one another, and you never see anyone. When I grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere, it seems I knew a whole lot more about who my neighbors were, and what they were up to. For all I know...there are vampires moving in next door! Gah!!!
The homes next door to us are crazy huge, and crazy expensive (I am talking multi-million). Three of them are perpetually on the market, and I never see any sign of anyone living in them. Yesterday, I stuck my head out the window, and I saw the crane scene. Not only did I snoop, but I took pictures...and I have no idea what they were loading into that house! They loaded it in many different trips...didn't look like drywall...didn't seem heavy enough to be granite...I am going with crypt! The Crypt Keeper is moving in next door to me:O I'll keep you posted, but if they are vampires, I will never see them. We will be keeping totally different hours;)

On a completely unrelated note...I am meeting a semi-big blogger for a drink tonight...any guesses who?

  3. This so reminds me of an 80s vampire movie (Fright Night) where the kid sees his new neighbors move in and find out that he is a vampire. He spends the remainder of the film trying to convince others and fighting off the blood sucker!

    Hope you and semi-big blogger have fun!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  5. I'm a little nervous that we've yet to discover what they are moving in next door. You should blog every day so that we know you are alive and well.

    Oh you meeting OHMommy? I think she was in Chicago.

  6. I saw that photo! I thought it was a fridge. We are lucky to know many of our neighbors.

    Are you meeting Mom 101 or Mrs. Mogul? Don't they live where you live too?

    I'd guess OHMommy, too, but I'm not sure. You didn't leave your twits any clues.

  9. It's so cool that you live in the city, though. Chi-town is an AWESOME city.

    We live in not-quite-city not-quite-suburb land. It's pretty cool too.

    Hope you had a fab time!

  10. Oy! You should have picked Dry-Erase Board neighbors. They're quiet and all you have to look out for are pocket protectors bringin' down the 'hood.

  11. You'd better stock up on garlic, just in case!

  12. Growing up on a big farm myself, this would freak me out! Maybe you can write a book about it, vampire neighbors

  13. I always like to look at houses for sale - especially the crazy, big, multi-million dollar ones.

    Have you taken a peek at them?

  14. I'm guessing it's a huge safe, for all their bling.

    If it were my neighbors I'd prefer bling over blood.

  15. Maybe your new neighbors are vampires and they're sound proofing some portion of the house so the neighbors can't hear the screams of their victims?

    P.S. I'm adding you blog to my "new improved" blogroll.

  16. Personally, I like it better before I get to know my neighbors pretty well. Then I can speculate on a lot of different things. . .like your crypt keeper. Until we found out she was taking care of her daughter preg with triplets on bedrest, we thought our old neighbor had been chopped up by her manfriend and buried in the backyard. Certainly more interesting that way. . .No clue on the famous blogger.

  17. You could move to SoCal where you totally get to live on top of your neighbors. Yup. I'm staring into their windows right now. Hello neighbor!

  18. I say loads of antiques! How crazy. I once saw a special on tv about a couple that had a pool craned onto their roof (I believe it was even in chicago)!

  19. Umm - we live in the country and don't know our neighbors either . . . . and I totally stare when interesting things happen next door - but never have done the picture thing . . . . that's sorta weird :)
