    Call the cops. That's bullshit.

    Unless it's a bunch of drunk sports writers looking for an open Tim Horton's. Then come on over.

    There must be a noise ordinance against this. Plus, that lawn is going to suck.

    I for one would love to see pictures of this lawn from the morning after. If it doesn't look like a wacked-out version of the maze from the Overlook Hotel, I'd be shocked.

    The only thing wierder than a guy mowing his lawn at 2:30 is the fact Starman got out of bed, fired up his computer, and told us about it.

    Did he remember to edge?

    As hot as it's been, can't blame him. Probably the coolest time of night to do it.

    After all, when it's 111ºF in Rapid City, S.D., you know it's got to be fucking hot where you are. (It was "only" 100º in Dallas.)

    it'd be funny if you had gotten up at like 5:30 a.m. and mowed your lawn, just to fuck with him. last thing you want when you're hungover is to be woken up by the sound of a lawnmower a couple hours after you pass out.

    It's 11 a.m. here, and it's already a cool 95 degrees. And I'm not in Rapid City.

    So did he miss any spots?

    It's hot as two dogs fucking here today ... I paid a neighborhood kid $30 to mow and edge today.

    Was at my sister's house earlier this summer, playing with my nephews at 7:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning. I hear a lawnmower outside and think, geez, what kind of neighbors do my sister have? Mowing the lawn on a Sunday before 10 is criminal, period, and even the 10-noon hour is rude enough.

    My nephew's looking out the window, wondering what it is. I tell him it's some inconsiderate neighbor waking up everyone.

    You guessed it. Turns out, it's my brother-in-law.

    effed up, starman. only yesterday, we were at a friend's with another family, chatting it up during dinner in the yard, when the neighbor starts mowing his yards at about 7 p.m. that pissed me off, too. am i wrong? it's a saturday when at a time when folks are entertaining. is that necessary?

    or am i just a dick for finding that timing rude?

    oh, and if it's hot during the day, tough shit. there's no excuse from late night-early morning. or at dinner time during outdoor hosting season. we live in the 'burbs for peace and quiet at reasonable times. at least that's part of the allure for moi.
