I hope it "Gives You Hell"!

In my line of work it's very very quiet almost so quiet that it will make your head implode. I put on a single earphone and browse the top 10 songs on VH1 and this song from the All American Rejects pop up as number one called "Give You Hell." Click on it to go to the music video on youtube. Anyway it's pretty darn funny and you really have to see it to believe it. It reminds me of my dear crappy neighbors that live in the building across from me.

Living in NYC the streets are only so wide and I have a very good hunch the people across from us are some type of professional photographers because they have those umbrellas and stuff set up. For some reason they only photograph at night. The light is blinding and they work till god knows when. That flash just lights up my whole room.That's fine... I can just get some curtains like these fantastic ones from creativeneurosis. I don't want just some boring curtains and I like the simple look of flying birds and come on you know you secretly wish you could fly too like Superman. Or you know what works maybe some of those sleeping masks like this one from BiBon. Yes it is a superhero mask because I secretly am a superhero and superheros need sleep too. If the super hero look just ain't for you the shop has a huge variety of them so you're bound to find something that suits your needs. I have nothing against photographers except when they blind me but once a year they throw this huge party from night to the next morning and I can hear the actually clinking of the wine glasses and music rocking the streets. Last year they had 50 cent's "In Da Club" playing on repeat. Well now that I have something for the wonderful disco party lights I have the remedy for the noise.
Those are fancy ear plugs because well I like a bit of fancy in my life. These little guys are from redrumroses. They're inspired from a movie called Breakfast at Tiffany's. Which I am ashamed to say have never seen it. Oh they also come in other luxe colors. They are great on those long rides in the car, bus or planes and you just need some peace and quiet.

I'm sure everyone has had a bad or annoying neighbor in their lives or was a bad or annoying neighbor I am glad etsy has the remedies to deal with all of them humanely. Oh and to brighten up your day...

Poptart Kitty Says Hi!

I agree, we all have had some neighbor annoy us..I did live on 14th. street and a bar across the street drove me crazy..Now,
I make sure I have room on each side of me..just for peace and quiet..Have to admit, I have the movie "Breakfast at Tiffanys" and do enjoy it..But I am partial to Audrey Hepburn..

I would not be able to live where you live! All of that noise would get on my nerves. But if I did, I would LOVE to have those ear plugs! Those are so cute! And fancy ;)

We live in the country and the neighbors are 1/2 a mile away. I have lived in town and in the city - no thanks. Really like my space.
You left a comment on my blog about liking handmade soap but not sure which to choose. I've tried a few shops on etsy, I really really like these. Their soap smells all the way through the bar (not just the first two washings). - also has wonderful lip butters! (on holidays - back monday) - also has amazing hand lotion!

Great post! We use to have teen drummers that lived next to us and then kids that road their noisy dirt bikes in their little back yard behind us. You couldn't even hear yourself think! It was awful!

Have a great weekend.

I'm pretty lucky in that my husband and I live in a duplex, and our upstairs neighbors are pretty quiet most of the time (in actuality it's more of a challenge for US not to be the annoying ones!!)......Oh, and Poptart Kitty is the cutest!!
