I found this scrapbook yesterday in a thrift store, it is mainly full of cats, there are a few pages of bears as well. It's from the 1940s. I love old scrapbooks, I was so psyched to find this one. Right after we left the thrift store I was driving and came to a sign that said the road was closed and it pointed towards a detour down a road I had never been on. On that road we passed a street sign that said "Bee Mountain Road" and it made me wish I lived on a street with a name as good as that one.

Yesterday was weird, I woke up super tired from having lost lots of sleep due to my neighbors fighting at 4 am on the other side of my bedroom wall. I was so angry about it, I eventually fell back asleep and had angry dreams. When I woke up I was so out of it. I took Jason outside so that he could go to the bathroom, he usually pees right away on either the pay phone or the street sign outside our front door. I was standing there waiting for him to go completely oblivious to the fact that someone was being arrested only a few feet away. As I realized it I looked around and saw a silent crowd of people gathered watching. A man was in handcuffs and four police officers were there, one was pushing down on the man's head to get him into the back seat of the cop car. He was yelling "I just woke up, I just left my house!" I guess he was saying he hadn't had enough time to commit a crime? Living here I hardly even notice anything anymore.


  1. The scrapbook is the coolest! Yesterday DOES sound weird. Loud neighbors are the worst. I used to live under a songwriter who played guitar all night and tapped her cowboy boots in rhythm on her floor - which happened to be the ceiling over my bed. I wish the cops had come for her! :)

  2. Thanks! I asked the lady in the thrift store if they had anymore scrap books that weren't out yet and she said that there had been four more that a customer had just purchased 20 minutes before I got there. It made me crazy, I wondered if they were even cooler. I'm glad I got this one though. And musical neighbors are trouble, I used to live beneath a dj and that was crazy, he was always playing music in the middle of the night, I used to wear ear plugs to sleep.
