A Late Night Noise

Tuesday night I woke up at 2:30 AM to a pounding sound. Every minute or so ... boom. I started walking around my house trying to figure out where the noise was coming from. The last time I ignored a loud noise in the middle of the night my grill got stolen right off my deck! No joke, when I called the police the next day they said that they actually stopped a guy pushing a grill up McCormick (a major street) and asked where he got it. The guy told the cops that his friend had given it to him, so the cops let him go. Well I wasn't going to let that happen again.

I thought maybe someone was trying to break into my house. I went downstairs but couldn't figure out where the noise was coming from. When I realized it wasn't loud enough to be my house, I thought maybe someone was trying to break into my neighbor's house. I went upstairs to the bathroom and opened the window and saw a car driving slowly through the alley. I was very suspicious, but then the car drove away. I went back downstairs and opened my blinds a crack so I could look outside. There was a guy with a flashlight staring into his trunk. Every minute or so he tried to slam his trunk closed and it would pop back open...... boom.... boom.... boom.

O.K. you may think I'm a little jumpy and dramatic but we have had crazy neighbors who have been robbing people lately. I think the police arrested most of them and kicked the rest out of their rented house, but I mean, come on, I gotta protect my family... :)

Well after all that excitement I couldn't just go back to sleep so I watched Big Brother on my computer till 3:45 AM when I was finally tired again.

And once again, after driving Will to camp went to the Starbucks drive- thru for my regular (iced grande nonfat one splenda latte).

And now, a hilarious Big Brother moment.....

I think I'm in love with Jeff..... sigh.

If you didn't click on the link, go back and do it now!!!!! C'mon, just watch it. It wouldn't let me embed the video, but it's really short I swear.


  1. I'm glad we've chosen to side with the same person.
    Did you hear that CBS has decided to NOT SHOW the eviction ceremony live tonight. They are doing it four hours earlier.
    I say it is to package the whole thing nicely and edit it until it's at its best.
    My son says it's b/c Chyma is gonna "go off" so badly that they won't be able to bleep everything out as fast as the says it and throws hand gestures on a few seconds' delay ;)

  2. hahaha I totally agree. She is a little crazy. I just cannot wait to see jessie and Natalie's face when they go up for eviction. I really hope it's Natalie that goes home tonight. I totally hate her. And yes seeing Chema flip out will be the added bonus!

  3. i have no clue what the two of you are talking about here. i clicked on that link but its 42 minutes long!!!! what is this show???
    and btw you are so brave for actually getting out of bed last night....i might have called 911 from my closet

  4. hahahahahahha - pushing a grill up Mckormick (although I realize it may not have been funny to you at the time.)
