Newbie here. Oops. My first post now is the overheard conversation one. It looks like the first one is floating in Limbo.

My new rant..............
Living in an apartment complex and having people above you that argue ALL THE TIME.
It's hard for me to listen to, I'm almost deaf in one ear, but sometimes I can hear them like they are in MY apartment.
Yes, I've complained and yes, they have received a warning.
Still, as bad as my marriage got, towards the end, even we didn't argue like THIS.
God, divorce already, kill each other, but STOP waking me up at 6 in the morning, especially on the weekends. :(

^^^^^^^^^^^^Holy...She's right! You are obsessed with her...let it go!
I have been on these forums for years, she speaks her mind like many other women on here don't ike it...ignore her.
Cripes I looked at your posting history seem to have a vendetta for her...unreal!!!
You act more like a banished/blocked man or lover....are you?

I hear ya, Bama, if ya know what I mean. Used to live in a complex with paperthin walls, I don't think you could phart without the phellow in the phlat the phloor below phrom phinding out. Phreaky. Come to think of such things, a young couple living below apparently had a violent past, she went screaming out of the place one night and knew exactly where in the neighborhood to find a payphone to call the po-po. Yay for planning ahead.

he got his come-uppance, tho, dead a few weeks later of an aneurysm. Apparently the only thing he couldn't beat.

and yes, the 6am wakeup call does suck. you need to return the favor with a dripping faucet.

I recently had someone move in above me....a piano player ! Well, not much better than a drummer or trumpet player soundwise. I complained to my strata and she wanted to arrange a schedule so she could play around my schedule !

....who doesn't know that moving into a condo/apartment that playing a piano might disturb the neighbors ??????

Henry, I think you are right.
Talking to other people I know in real life they agree with you.
I overreacted and should have nipped it in the bud.
And have done as you and others have suggested.

Sent him this email:

"Martin, you crossed the line. Had you invited me to join you for lunch at the pub I would have enjoyed continuing our chat. I am not interested in you in the way I read in your texts. Please don't do it again."

His response:
"Yeah sorry. Must be my dutch accent and approach. I sometimes get that... I word things differently.
But I understand. Sorry. Won't bother you again then. M"

So a good ending.
Thank you.

In my defence I was flattered by the initial compliment and enjoyed our boat and water chat.
He seemed like a very nice man and had he invited me to join him for lunch I would have accepted.
Because I was busy doing other things I did not notice that my phone battery had gone flat so I did not read his 'sexy' nor the other texts till much later. I was cranky with myself for misreading his friendliness. As you have said before about me. My guard was down. I did like the compliment, they don't happen very often.

Blocking messages on a phone.. I am investigating this.
Have not done it with my current Android phone that I use everyday for work, friends and general life.
I have a 'private' phone I use for internet dating, MeetUp etc.
Again I misread him and thought he could be another boat buddy.
He wanted sex before finding out my surname. I have been there before.

Sunshine... Of course it is me. I am the one responsible. I cannot control anyone else, merely my reaction to them. Need to keep my guard up more often.

VK was not a victim, in any sense. She was disappointed, and sometimes bitter, but I didn't see her as 'victimized'.
She's living the good life, has a career she loves, and she isn't despaerate enough to latch on to someone just for the sake of having a man in her life. That's why I related and identified with her.
Having a man isn't the be all and end all with some of us.

Bama.. Playing an out of tune piano is a brilliant idea.
Perhaps you could sing along also out of tune.

Some song suggestions.

Any repetitive Chrissy Carol. Henry's operatic date singing could be good. Especially Gloooooooooooooooooooia

Sounds of silence.
All you need is love. Oh Oh Oh Oh Oooohhh
Theme from Rocky.
Hall of the mountain kings.
Herod's song
Greensleeves. Could make them want ice cream.

And of course your scales and arpeggios.
Over and over and over and over.

chromis: thanks! I hope for the same as well (though like LIR said, the doggie WAS cute... maybe you can just do HIS pic?)

the congratulators: thanks... keeping fingers crossed for us AND for you all...

spot: I understand what you are saying and I also don't know what was said. Though i HAVE had an EXTREMELY uh, unusual uh, proposition (mind you it was someone i had dated for over two months and spoken with a TON. After all that time and all those in person dates... I was infored he was looking for, well, a dom and considered himself a sub. When I asked why that had not come up in the entire time we had spoken/dated and what it was about me that made him think I'd be up for that (besides my shoes I guess LOL) the response was that they had supposedly been "testing" me with code words... and I didn't bat an eyelash.

So my not responding negatively to the code words was proof that I was up for being a dom. I had to inform them I didn't flinch because I didn't KNOW they were code words... so I was not passe; I was clueless :) So maybe she needs to find out what some "codes words" are that she is unaware of :) It might POSSIBLY be an innocent mistake.

Things taken for double entendres can be tricky; some people use them very carefully FOR sexual innuendo... if it becomes obvious it is "innuendo banter" castle, be a LITTLE careful... because it can shift from innocent to specific in a hurry.

Sounds of silence.

have you heard the version by Disturbed? INCREDIBLE. Anyone wants to play that over and over again at 6 am... I won't even care. :)

(glad you were able to get resolution castle)

Quite right Moonbeam.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

He had been telling me how he lives at .... > that house, right on the water front. No neighbours as they are holiday houses and it is very quiet and relaxing. How he had nothing to do today till his son came home so he was going to go fishing.

A bit like you... I heard all of this as general conversation.

There are a couple of men on here and other sites who I have met who are dom's seeking subs.
Again like you I had no idea what they were talking about.
Till they came right out.

One man wanted to be naked except for a dog collar and have me walk him around with a lead then urinate on him.
What the?

I missed ALL the keywords for that one. Did not know they existed.
He was a charming man, good job, working full time and studying part time, lives near me, turned up to the meet late, wearing a suit so insisted on paying for dinner as he wanted to apologise for being so late.
Even the restaurant owner who felt sorry for me sitting alone for so long waiting came up and told me he seemed an OK bloke when he was away from the table.

He still sends me a message every now and then.

Maybe play some Bing Crosby - White Christmas during your rehearsal break.
Apparently it is #1 for a few things including most sales and most likely to make young people who congregate at shopping malls, leave.

hi Tucker...

and uuuugh, who'd have thunk an adult could get croup.... Yep, dat's me....

code & key words?? yeah, thanx to a lifetime of mismanaged reading skills... I now have to decipher even harder what the fellow is saying, as opposed to what he 'wants'... {I knew there as something in the words of "take this at face value"... as in, I'm a sick and twisted individual and I got hidden sh!t I don't want you to know about}
Fortunately Wastebook is my 'friend' in this situation and through FB 'suggesting' groups to me, I see all the POF blokes on FB using the same pictures in their 'DTF', 'Hobart Hookups', and other Tassie NSA groups - so even more reason for me to avoid OLD... and even more reason for a vow of celibacy....

TUCKERRRRRRRRRRRRRR! Welcome back! Now why don't you ditch Chromis and get your own profile? We love Chromis but you are just what these forums need. You little sweetie you.... you make sure you growl at the new girl enough so your dad is not tempted to delete his account and try to leave the forums.

"...who doesn't know that moving into a condo/apartment that playing a piano might disturb the neighbors ??????"
Author: Butterchicken

No kidding. I live in a building with concrete fire walls and floors. Yet every time I pull out my accordian to play a gentle polka, there's a note on the door. Guess the sound of an accordian is an irritant to most people.
So I abstain:(
There is a new guy that thinks it's okay to have surround sound when he watches movies, and also wanted to make a deal that he could use it on Friday and Saturday nights. Most have hearing aids, and sleep aids, so he's allowed.

That's my rant, and I know, ..." first world problem".
Otherwise, things are good.

This condo rant caught my eye. I live in a downtown condo and I'm on the top floor. This summer they erected scaffolding around the entire building with a walkway above my patio to replace the roof. We have always had a few pigeons around but with the scaffolding up the pigeons had a lot of nooks and crannies to roost. I don't mind the pigeons, they are pretty and they aren't noisy. Now that the scaffolding has been removed and the roof project completed, we still have a few birds. There are about 6 pairs. Last week I received a memo under my door regarding these "pesky" birds ( rats with wings, disease carrying monsters) and anyone caught feeding them will be dealt with by the condo board.

Birds. Not piano's, violins or clog dancing...birds.

Now THAT would be cruel !

It's bad enough hearing the same song over and over again - even if it's a good , classic Stevie Wonder song - trust me on this !

Supposedly, and i'm sure there's a rock fan here who can confirm or deny, the band Van Halen was promised their first contract by Gene Simmons and his manager, and made the trip to a hotel where the latter two would be partying. The manager turned down the band's chance to hit it big (at that time), and the band was stuck in a hotel room beneath them.

Knowing the state of the two men the following morning, the band created the song "Shout at the Devil" in order to get revenge. I don't know if the story is true or not (Think I heard it on Dee Snyder's House of Hair"). but considering how the song begins..i guess it has every sound known to man that would play well on a hangover.

meanwhile, an anti-rant: woke up at 11, went out to get the paper and mail, and the state's tax dept sent a letter saying my accountant goofed on last year's return. Instead of getting $0 back, i'm getting a 1 and a few zeros back. So no wonder I have no luck with the ladies, its getting diverted. Made me giggle like a school girl tho, I hadn't expected that bit of fortune.

OK, back to the complaining. sorry to interrupt.

And Gene Simmons has never had a hangover. He doesn't drink.
