So I'm casually napping slash watching the Sopranos on a The Pansy's couch waiting for her return only to be aroused from my semi-lucid half sleep half hypothermic state by the building's fire alarm.
At first I was really confused and tried to figure out exactly how a fire alrm figured into the plot (it didn't) and then it occurred to me that it was in fact coming from beyond the door.
"Boo! Now I have to get off the couch and out from underneath the blankets" I thought to myself. I didn't really feel like leaving the warmth of the living room so I stayed in the apartment for a bit and called The Pansy for advice - which actually just worried her and then I peeked my head out the door only to make eye contact with her neighbour's white trash (and possible) live-in boyfriend (Ed. So it turns out it's the boyfriend's place), so I quickly closed the door again.
Still in the apartment.
The Pansy asked me to ask them what was going on, but I didn't really feel the need, but I complied. Except once I peeked my head out once again, he was no where in sight (too bad!).
At this point, I had to go to the washroom and was seriously considering a trek to McDonald's because at least I'd be warm/have food and shit but I refused to relieve myself there, so that was my last stop before bundling myself up n my way out the door.
I went out the back door (because it's more fun to plow your way through snow drifts when you're wearing canvas shoes) and walked around to the front doors to find what can only be described as 'the cat-lady cabal' - a small troupe of obviously single women clutching cats wrapped in blankets kvetching about how the alarm interrupted their movie or whathaveyou.
Seriously, just shoot me in the face; it's better than being trapped in an alcove with these women, who give single women everywhere a bad name.
I called The Pansy again to fill her in on what exactly was going on ( a fire alarm went off in an empty unit prompting a
All in all, I only missed half of the Sopranos episode that I was watching and solidified my vow to never become a cat lady.
