Weird Things

Postby mikekearn » Wed Nov 24, 2010 1:20 am

We have threads for happy things, depressing things, and other things, but nothing (that I could find) for the really bizarre or weird things that happen day to day. So here's this.

My roommate called me about three hours ago, saying I needed to move my van out of the driveway. I ask why, and he says because his dad says so. Since it's his house we're living at, I say okay, move my van, and forget about it.

About 10 minutes ago, I hear a loud truck rumbling in the driveway, and figure, "Oh, they needed to deliver something/pick something up." Then I hear something like I loud explosion, wonder what the hell is happening, and run outside. I was right about the delivering part. An entire cord of firewood was dropped onto our driveway, right where my van usually sits. For reference, this is what a cord looks like.

While I'm glad my roommate told me to move my van, seeing that piled up in our driveway was just weird.

I have no perspective on this, because in my town there are people all over the place with wood stacked around their houses like that x.x

I live in Southern California. It's late November, 2 AM, and raining outside, and it's still 54° F. Which is a little over 12° C for those who don't know and don't want to convert it. And we got an entire cord of firewood for the fireplace. It is just not that cold.

Set light to it in the driveway and tell your neighbours it's a funeral pyre for [insert relative/pet here].

You're invited. In fact, if anybody wants to come to SoCal and visit, we can totally do a bonfire. It's great fun to hang out on the beach and have a bonfire right by the water, after watching the sunset, then roasting marshmallows for s'mores and just generally hanging out.

Man, back when my family used to have a fire, we'd get two or so cords for winter, and they'd get dumped into the driveway. It was always fun for the first ten or so minutes of climbing all over it, but then we'd either get a splinter, or Dad would co-ops us to help stack it behind the garage.

Facebook has like 10 million users or something. I'm sure it just got a little confused. I know I can barely keep track of my friends and family, and that's maybe a hundred people.
