Hello my fellow random friends! Tuesday has arrived once again, and it’s the perfect day to unleash the random! 

So an update on the riffraff living the house behind us – the owner has given them an eviction notice, and paid us a visit to apologize for said riffraff. He also told us to be sure to call the police if we see anyone at the house, since no one is supposed to be there at all.

Problem is, he didn’t tell us when the ‘no people should be living there’ time frame is. I suspect that it must be now, because there seemed to be a mass exodus over the weekend. Except some woman, who has parked her beater SUV a block-and-a-half away, at the bottom of the hill (where we have perfect view of it), in front of our neighbor below’s property.

I saw that same vehicle parked up at the house all weekend – I know it’s the same one, because its back window and passenger side rear cargo window are both broken out and ‘repaired’ with plastic and tape. I just happened to be at the kitchen sink yesterday when I saw a woman at the vehicle digging through a pile’o’stuff in the front passenger seat, then walk from that vehicle up to the house with her arms loaded – in the pouring rain.

When Princess Nagger went to walk Little Dude home from school, she had to walk right past the vehicle, and she said the entire vehicle is full of bags upon bags upon bags of stuff – the only empty space in the whole vehicle is the front driver seat.

So, one does wonder, why someone would have the need to park a block-and-a-half away – and down a steep hill – unless they wanted to make sure anyone driving by the house would think no one is living there. The hubby’s going to get in touch with the owner to find out the status of the evictions, so we know if calls need to be made. Because if there’s one person ‘squatting’ there, you know there are, or will be, more. Especially when there’s a penchant for drugs.

OK, on to more fun stuff – funnies! This cracked me up, because it’s so true, at least for me:

I don’t wear overall makeup, just eye makeup, and if I’m going out, some color on my lips. So I feel naked if I go anywhere without my eye makeup on.

Try to figure out the answer to this – I will reveal the answer next week:

Which coincides with this:

I thought this ‘chore chart’ was hilarious:

And finally, I’m going to leave this right here for you:

That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.

  1. Stacy,

    I hope the squatters or at the very least strange neighbor issue is resolved in short order. Did the homeowner not run background checks on these people? It makes you wonder, huh? I wear eyeshadow, liner, and mascara as well as little blush. Sometimes I’ll wear lipstick but usually just lip moisturizer. Brains are awesome, I wish everyone had one, too…as well as good old common sense and sound judgment. Have a good day, dear friend!

  2. Be glad for you when the people leave. Sorry that you need to deal with it. Thanks for the funnies. I need them this morning. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

  3. That was interesting about the order of vowels. Guess that’s why they call it “tic-tac-toe.”

    I think my mother must have written that chore chart…
