You've GOT to update this next week.

This is hilarious. I don't know why. But it is

I love eccentric people.

I second this idea of writing a blog post about it.

And now I want to read the thread about the security guard...

Stopped by to see mutual neighbor friend while I was walking Anabelle. As we were all sitting on the porch UPS arrived with some Omaha Steaks. Whew. Also dog treats. Here's Anabelle and Miles waiting on a piece.

Well, I'm glad for mutualneighborfriend, but I must admit, I am also a bit disappointed in an odd sort of way.

Then again, there's always tomorrow, right? Right?

Seriously, every time I see a thread of yours I'm all, "This is gonna be good."
How does this happen???? It's true, I know the weirdest-- er best-- people.
Oh, I'm around a lot of weirdos, too. I just don't write about them--I'd be here writing all day every day. It's a feature of urban living. There are nothing but Quirky McQuirks around here--it's, like, requisite for urban dwellers or something. My people aren't usually so entertaining, though, just annoying, rude, or offensive.

That said, I agree with Legends and usually agree with Springcurl on just about everything.

I would return her generosity by making her a carpaccio salad and insist she eat it while I was present.

One last update. Just took my trash down to the dumpster and the unopened box of Omaha Steaks is sitting on the top of the pile. While I'm seriously glad she didn't give it to anyone, I also cannot believe the waste of food and money.

Good grief, that is horrible.

Just imagine someone who can't afford any food who is starving and what they'd give to have that. I hate that.

Hmmph does she seem depressed? Loss of interest in a box of meat sitting on your porch sounds clinical. Not to make fun of mental illness, but seriously.

Maybe she's a vegetarian and just keeps the boxes coming to give away as gifts. If an occasion doesn't pop up she has to throw it away?

I'm probably trying to rationalize something that can't be rationalized rotfl

Maybe it was the wrong order and the company said to toss it instead of sending it back?

Maybe she was afraid it had sat too long before she first saw it, so just threw it out?

Either of those though, I think she would have said that too SC.

Soooo weird!

I was under the impression that this wasn't the first time this happened.

Maybe I should just start a thread called "what's outside my neighbor's door today?"

This is none of my business-- (SORTA UPDATE)-imageuploadedbycurltalk1358455584.175044.jpg

She's home (as indicated by the shoes, socks, and cane), which means she had to carry the boxes upstairs. Why doesn't she just bring then in?
