I'm sitting here, pretty much in silence, typing away and doing some job hunting... when I hear someone outside yell, quite clearly, "Lauren!"
Now we live on a very quiet street (especially for nyc), and aside from the occasional ambulance (we live near a hospital) and car horn, we don't really hear much from outside.
So I realize that it is pretty damn unlikely that it is anyone referring to me, as I know probably 2 guys in the city and it doesn't sound like either one. I look out the window anyway, out of curiosity, and don't seeing anything odd, but as I walk away from the window I hear it again, loud and clear.
This other Lauren needs to answer this guy, because he's creeping me out.
Other randomness: While I was looking out, I noticed this black cable/rope that is hanging down from somewhere above us, next to out fire escape, then further down, beyond my view. I wonder what it is and why it is there. More importantly, can I snip it? :P Yes, I am bored.
