boiled butt

have i ever mentioned that our neighbors always make food at around 5:00 p.m. (c.s.t.), that smells like boiled butt? because they do. and it does.

no, you would have remembered that, wouldn't you?

You know how I live in a Tower block full of mainly elderly folk (for indeed I do) - well, every so often one of these people will cook ...something that smells like nothing I've ever smelt before. It's pungent and it's fowl and it permeates the entire block for ages.

So I can well sympathize.

i live in a towerblock with lots of older people around too. and i'm pretty sure that the boiled butt is made by some elderly person.

I lived in a two-flat over a guy who used to cook
boiled butt. He used to complain when we would cook things with garam masala or other "weird" (his words) seasonings. He also complained when we used the sewing machine. He complained when we walked around with shoes on. I could hear his bathroom noises. I don't miss apartment living.

But Rakka, you would have loved his cat setup--he had built a maze of catwalks high up throughout the apartment. It was like a kitty skyway. He was absolutely nuts but he was good to his cats.

poor pants! you had a neighbor that made boiled butt too? how awful!

and what a cretin! i can't stand neighbors that complain for no reason. because then i have to beat them up and, well, i'm tired of serving prison time. (joking! ;D)

oh! jason's wanting to make kitty walkways near the ceiling when we have our own house! right now we have what is referred to as "the dave" (it's an old david letterman joke that we co-opted). it's like a cat interstate made of tables, bookshelves, couches, etc.

pretty much the cats can get around the entire apt without touching the floor if they don't want to!

wow, i can't belive i just admitted that in public...
(*whispering* i think i'm turning into a crazy cat person!)
