Most important: I hope all of you had a good start into the new year and wish you all the best for 2006
And now, the reason for the subject line.
Dear arse of a neighbour:
if you call someone at 2 am on the first of January to tell them their music is too loud and the person has
a) obviously been asleep before you called and
b) tells you there is no loud music here,
the right thing to do is not to call them again four hours later (just when they've managed to fall asleep again because being awakened in the first 10 minutes after falling asleep messes with their sleep patterns) to ask if they've got permission for all that noise.
Though, if you wanted someone to scream at you, hang up on you and plot your death for the next few days, you've certainly achieved your goal.
And FYI: The neighbours one house over were having a party. Yes, the music was loud. But since it was Silvester, noise doesn't stop me from sleeping if I'm tired and you had just woken me up, I did not feel like telling you that.
Have a nice day. And if your phone starts ringing in the middle of the night, I have nothing to do with it. Really. Would I lie to you?
Otherwise New Year's Eve was nice and quiet after I'd managed to send the family off but I didn't get anything done anyway (as usual), the calender switching over forced me to realize that it's only five days until the next exam (Wah!) and I should start on my list of things that need to be done before I drive back to Leipzig tomorrow instead of reading my flist or updating.
Same old, really.
