Aiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee THUNK!

Question of the day: What sort of sounds do you hear in your home/living space/cardboard box?

An honest face like that
I just can’t forget too easy
God knows I’m trying

  1. Oh dear 😮 that could get annoying–

    hmmmm…well when I’m at school I have the pleasure of hearing stupid girls in the hallway screaming about stupid things, or drunken fools outside if I leave my windows open.

    When I’m at home, I try to drown out all the weird sounds with the constant humming of a fan because, well, you know my house is haunted. Dulling out the sound of footsteps when there is no one home is essential :O scary, eh? 😉

    Oh Berlin 67

  2. Oh Berlin, that IS scary! I hear train “whistles”, fire engine and police sirens, my downstairs neighbor on the phone, and birds chirping. I’m ready for a quieter home…

  3. I hear the neighbors upstair stomping around like elephants. Ugh! Ruins the peace.

  4. I hear the cats running around like baby elephants. Their mass increases 10 fold after 11 pm and when they walk on a human bladder

  5. In the middle of the night, I hear what sounds like wood cracking in the attic. Not creaking, but a “CRACK”. I guess after eight years, the house is still “settling”.

    We live right next door to a Navy Master Jet Base, but the jets seldom fly directly over our home, so it’s not a big deal. In fact, it’s kind of cool to watch them when they do.

  6. Tara: Eek! Ghosts! Keep that fan on for sure…

    Lisa: Isn’t your downstairs neighbor the naked guy that stands in front of the fridge?

    D: Yes, they do like to stomp. It’s almost as if they knooooow you are listening in…

    PAM: Oh goodie! I can’t wait to hear them running around all night on Friday!

    Trina: I’d say the house, after eight years, is doing some serious stretching to make that “CRACK” sound.

  7. Sometimes I hear gas explosions. OK, sometimes it is just me.

  8. you need to stop eating beans at night, or things
    that turn your stomach, that make it rumble,
    so you stop having those embarrassing accidents.

  9. Sounds like my dishwasher.

  10. Eww Cassie!

    I hear the heavy walker moving about. But that is pretty comforting after watching creepy shows on TV. At least I know someone is close should I be screaming bloody murder.

    I also hear the helicopters above my apartment complex and the one across the street looking for deviants. I sleep by a very sharp letter opener. Knives – the new security blanket.

    I finished the Subtle Knife and now am partway through the Amber Spyglass.

  11. Cass: Gas explosions? You mean from David? o.O

    Seraphine: I try not to eat beans before bed, but sometimes the temptation is too much! I kid, I kid. I never eat beans before bed; I eat them while sleeping…

    TK: I don’t have one of those things. :/

    Bitsy: Don’t accidentally stab Athena! She wouldn’t like that at all. She’d said, “Mrow? Mrowww.” And then you’d say, “Aw, Athena! I didn’t mean to stab you!”

    And you don’t want to have that conversation…now do you?
