I swear I hear a lifeguard whistle in there repeatedly also. So either the shums have whistles, or there is a deaf adult responsible for keeping them in the pen by blowing a whistle at them.

Actually, I think that career couples who only have one kid are the best neighbours. They tend to be on their own a lot and kids need a quorum of more than one before they start making noise (unless there are malicious, sadistic & uncaring grandparents who want to punish you for things gone wrong during your upbringing by giving noisy toys - like ). Also, with a kid in the house they're less likely to have parties at their appartment.

On the other hand, with elder people there's the constant danger of being hijacked and having to listen to tales about their various illnesses and operations and how things used to be better and how spoiled we are etc etc

Crepe murder??? I don't understand. Is this an insane dislike of pancakes, or what?

Crepe murder is when you take a beautiful old flowering crepe myrtle (they grow big) and prune it back to the bare trunk, leaving only little patches of flowers. People say they do it because the trunks are so pretty. Which they are, except it ruins the natural shape of the tree. Very common treeicide procedure down here.

Crepe murder sounds most cruel.

Do you think the SHUMS could be driven away by some sort of foul smell? Like a stink bomb or a rotting corpse? Or do their unwashed bodies smell so foul that they wouldn't even notice?

Thanks for the explanation, Dixie Gal.
Some people have no sense of the fitness of things.

Well, I hope you brought your mp3 of The SHUMS. Just put in a loop you so you can listen to it all day and it'll feel like you're home.

Okay, that was just too doggone cruel. I take it back. I wish you a week of peace, Queen Zee.

heh... actually, i am listening to ok computer on the same mp3 player i used to record the shums to begin with, so actually i DO have it with me (because i didn't erase it, for some incomprehensible reason). you just TRY and make me listen to it. (seriously, try. i dare you. just watch out. it's amazing how adrenaline can give you super-strength and speed when menaced by a weapon like the prospect of the Shums.)
