A bunch of grown men reaching behind a metal utility box to grab a film can canister on a busy road and sign the piece of paper inside.

I love geocaching, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look strange!

I was in a horse-drawn wagon earlier today with friends, and there was this very strange dude just staring at us.  Weird, to say the least.

I haven't seen anything weird today because I haven't left the house. But yesterday morning on my way to bring the manfriend to work I saw a grown man wearing a ruffled leotard, a long beaded necklace, fishnets, and spats over high heels. He was attempting to twirl a baton. He did not look sober.

My dog pooped a necklace again. He must have eaten a hair and when he did his morning business there were three turds evenly spaced along a hair just hanging there. He was slowly spinning in circles trying to reach it. I had to grab it with a leaf and pull it out. He got kind of pissed but I can't blame him- how weird would that feel?

There was a woman shopping at my Costco wearing a full football uniform. Pads, cleats, helmet in the cart, everything. She looked to be about mid-40's. I'm not sure what that was all about, not am I sure if I want to know.

My 14-year-old son running ...

I dragged him to the track with me so he could get some exercise because--like most teenagers--he's in danger of permanently mind-melding with his laptop.

The annoying part is that he's thin as a rail and actually runs like a gazelle when he tries, while I'm tramping along like a farking water buffalo ...

This was last night, but close enough.  After a long week on the road (I'm a truck driver), I was finally coming home when I saw a guy get out of his car, shoot a cop, then another cop jump out of a squad car fill the first guy full of holes, then more police cars than I've ever seen in my life showed up.  The cop's going to be okay, the other guy is very dead and full of holes, and I had to find another route home.  Clayton county, GA.  So glad I only have to drive thru it and not actually live there.

Yeah, I know, right?  The best I can come up is that it was some sales promotion (absinthe was new in my state at the time and that was the first week or so anyone was allowed to sell it).   I've seen chicks in bikinis promoting vodak there before, maybe someone hired a little person to sell absinthe?  If so, whoever thought of that should get a raise, that shiat sticks in your mind.

Although a flaming gay little person in a green leotard would've been better.

Nothing today, but...

Earlier this week, while driving to work, I saw a guy with an "Ice, Ice Baby" era Vanilla Ice haircut.  He was crouched behind a Ford Mustang, and he was dry-humping the bumper while smacking it with his right hand (ala "smacking that ass").

I'm pretty sure it wasn't his first time doing this.

I saw a really enormous cricket in my basement. It was the size of the last joint of my thumb, had stripey legs and was tame enough to pick up. I thought he was a cicada at first, but it turns out he is a cave cricket.

I took him out to my garage, which has a lot of leaves and stuff near the edges of the garage door for him to eat (Wikipedia says they like organic material,) and will be darker once I get these new basement lights installed. Also, the six-year-old named him Captain Hoppity Stripeylegs, because that is how six-year-olds think, and she is presently chalking stripes on her tights and composing an interpretive dance about the life of the cave cricket people and culture in general. (Her dance teacher went on an Isadora Duncan kick last winter and we couldn't make the kid wear a scarf for love or money, so this is progress.)

Really, two weird things I saw today.

Pulled out of the drive to make a milk run and stopped to let an entire company of Hasidim pass in front of me on their way to Shule.

Damnedest thing is, had the same thing happen to me in Plano, Texas about the same time of year (June) 15 years ago, also while on a milk run.

Hope to be alive in another 15, in another state, just to see if it happens again.

We were in Marshall, Texas on our way home after a wedding.  I saw what looked like several old cars pieced together to make something that drove.  It had an exposed engine like a chopped up deuce coupe.  The entire thing was rusty, and on the door was painted (or maybe chalked) "White Trash."  It had a shiny nitrous tank on the back.

letthepossumlive: redsquid: letthepossumlive: I went to the beach today where I saw over a hundred people  (they kept coming) with a lot of them dressed in all white with some in white robes. They had  3 props with the last one saying "believe". Not sure what the first two words were.  It didn't look like a wedding but for some reason I was thinking it was religious in nature.   There was not much room for parking so they had to  either take some buses or walked quite a ways.

Are you in South Florida?

Maybe Santeria? I had neighbors who were into that. They had huge get-togethers where everyone wore white and did religious stuff. Really good people but the animal sacrifice thing made me queasy.

At the Farmer's Market last night I saw a bride and groom rushing down the street. She had on a beautiful full length white gown with bouquet in hand. He had on a very dapper gray suit with vest and tie. They stopped to do a quick 2 step when the live band gave them a shout out and then hurried on their way.

I really wanted to get the grass cut before it rained here. It was clouding up majorly and the wind was really blowing hard. I just finished mowing, when a huge gust of wind blew up my grass clippings into a small funnel cloud. It lasted no more than 5 or 6 seconds, but I saw the birth of a "grass tornado".

this morning, looking out a hotel window from a few floors up -

a portly middle aged man with bleached blonde hair, a kind of grown out buzz cut. he walked out of the hotel to a nice looking honda goldwing. he then spent several minutes polishing the seats of the bike. then he walked across the parking lot, got into a pickup truck that had the entire back window covered in a decal or something of a big eagle's head and an american flag, and drove off.

/he did exactly the same thing yesterday evening, and i don't spend much time at all looking out the window. maybe it's some OCD thing he has to do 27 times a day.

I'm a 52 year old disabled vet, my wife is also disabled and was born that way. We have custody of our 7 year old grandson who, although completely able to make himself understood through sign language and whatnot, can not talk intelligibly.

The fact that subby finds something amusing about the fact that the people that live in the assisted living facility are actually out in public and trying their best to live their lives as normal human beings pisses me right off.

Once, late at night/early morning, coming home from partying, my friends and I pulled up at a stop sign.   Out of the darkness behind us we heard 'clip clop, clip clop' and sure enough what appeared to be a Mexican cowboy riding a horse pulled up in the lane next to us.  He pulled back on the reins, to stop, and the poor horse lost its footing and the horse and cowboy did a powerslide into the intersection(the horse was running fast).   We drove on, and as I looked out the back window the horse and cowboy, still together as one, rode off down the side street to the right.

This is in suburban LA, not some rural area.   I don't even know where, within a few miles of there, he could even park his horse for the night.   Where was he coming from, where was he going?  I don't know but he looked surreal and somewhat badass riding a horse on city streets with all the drunks and cops slinking around.

cordelia_3: Saw a 40-something man wearing bunny ears at the mall.


OK - CSB time...

My husband, who is a lawyer, and who worked in the PD's office before he went to work for
DCF, told me this story about a suspect who had been arrested for a crime in one of the
smaller towns here in Fla.

The suspect is taken into interrogation and after a few hours, he still won't own up to having
committed the crime. So the interrogating officers leave the room and come back about 20
minutes later. The suspect is disheveled, bruised, and breaks down, confessing to everything.

During the trial, he recants, telling the judge in open court that while he was left alone, a
giant pink bunny came in and beat the crap out of him until he agreed to confess. Of course,
the judge doesn't believe him and the jury doesn't believe him, and he winds up being
convicted.

Over the course of a year or so, several similar cases popped up where a suspect would
confess, only to recant in court, telling the same story about the giant pink bunny.

Turns out that a cop in the precinct was dressing up in a giant pink bunny costume and
would enter the interrogation room after the other officers left and would beat the suspects
up until they agreed to confess.

Don't know what happened to the cop.

Um, OK.  To me the "strange thing" in the headline had more to do with the horse-drawn wagon than the folks in it.  In fact, I thought subby meant senior citizens - all my experiences lately of "assisted living" have involved cute little old folks, and the idea of a geriatric hay ride made me smile.  I do not think that the point of the headline was to make fun of people with disabilities.

Alas, I'm frightfully short on stories right now.  There was some sort of shootout near my house last night, and there is a paper bag full of pelican and dolphin skulls on my desk.

Migraine. No they don't always have to include the painful headache. And you're lucky if it didn't.

Either that or you have a tumor and you're going to die. But really, it was probably a migraine.
