I have to sit down and have a talk with my neighbor and I’m so dreading it. While she’s at work she just leaves her door open so that her dogs can go outside to use the bathroom on the patio that our apartment’s share. Now that summer has hit and the sun is out, I can’t even sit out on the patio because of the intense urine stench.
I hate having to have these kinds of confrontations, and I’ve tried to give some leeway since I know she has to deal with bipolar disorder. But at this point it’s even seeping inside the building and the patio is just totally disgusting since the poop and pee just sit and accumulate.
I just went out and swept up all of the poop and poured some white vinegar down over the urine saturated areas after reading that it will help with the smell. But I shouldn’t have to be the one to clean it all up, especially when it shouldn’t happen in the first place.
My brain often makes connection between things in strange ways. If I happen to experience two things together, sometimes a permanent bond between the two somehow forges in my mind, even if they’re completely unrelated.
For instance, every time my brain hears the opening of Ebeneezer Goode I irresistibly see this image of Patrick Troughton from Doctor Who. And it works in reverse, too - see the pic, hear the song.
There is no link between the two things at all, but it so happens that once as a young teen I was reading a book about Doctor Who and listening to the radio on my walkman and that song came on just as I turned the page to that photo. Some synapse chose that moment to bloom, and ever since then Doctor Two and The Shamen have been forever one in my mind.
Anyone else do this?

I have one of these that really stands out. I was reading the Sookie Stackhouse book that introduces Queen Sophie Anne one day while my husband was stuck on the song The Queen and The Soldier by Suzanne Vega and played it a few times in a row while I was reading. Now I always associate that song to Sophie Anne and her to it. It’s like she’s the queen the song is about.
Yay she’s here. Beautiful #yoga space. First time here.
Waiting at songbird for yoga to get started. Starting to think class was canceled and I wasn’t aware.
Our wonderful neighbor got us flowers for feeding her dog. #sosweet!
