I was thinking of moving to a new, hip place under some new hip bridge. What do you think, should I go with A:http://www.tcbulk.com/ProdImages/TCBulk/Large/PostcardStorageBox.gif

or B:http://www.molesworthgallery.com/images/Redmond/Redmond%20for%20web%202006/Redmond%20web%202006/images/Cardboard%20box.jpg

Yes, yes, I know B is a little bit sloppy, but the rent is much lower. I only have to give the hobo a pack of smokes and a 22oz a day, as opposed to A's rent of a carton of smokes and keg.

I'd choose B. It definitely has more character. And that "lived-in" feel.

A. The lid still fits and sometimes it rains.

I just had to respond because of the location in my profile. Look to the left there. Are we going to be neighbors? Have you got things I can borrow?

Maryn, who smelled homeless earlier today (pee-yew!)

They're both charging too much :)

My father used to work at a box factory making both corrugated and product packaging. Go for corrugated if you can. Better protection from the elements.

What the hell is a "22oz"?

I was positive I knew all possible permutations of cheap booze.

Even if it rains, the second box has the flexible advantage of being able to be flipped over, thus providing excellent protection. Plus, if you're living under a bridge, this really helps keep the rain out.

What's easier, though, is just to pick open people's basement windows and then sleep behind the furnace. Save up and buy (or steal) a digital watch with an alarm, and then get yourself out of their house early in the morning before they wake up. It's safe and easy, no matter how many times Maryn swears she hears something banging around down there. :D

Wait a minute, you wouldn't happen to be my landlord would you? Do you rent out a red TV cardboard box under that big rock- if so, that's me!

A 22 is like a 40, but it's not. It's a 22.

What's easier, though, is just to pick open people's basement windows and then sleep behind the furnace. I was doing that for a while, but I caught fire a few times and decided it was time for the big move. My insurance doesn't cover "caught a'blazin" anymore.

The last digital watch I stole turned out to have a tracking device on it. I got beaten, behind the furnace, by a bunch of nerdy kids with aluminum baseball bats. :(

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that you need to invest/steal some sort of machete or short sword. Don't worry, you won't actually use it (except if someone pays you to hack weeds for five bucks or so) but it'll scare people away. Promise.

I just carry my bow and arrows with me. That way, anyone that bugs me can run all they want, but I'll still get em. :)

PeeDee

YOU're the one what put this bolt through my leg!

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 06:54 PM
Serves you right for trying to steal the socks off of my feet!

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 06:56 PM
Well, you were asleep, I didn't think it woudl hurt anything. You've got your nice cardboard box to live in, I would think you could be charitable to those of us who have less.

Aw, Pete, you took a picture of my old house. Brings back such memories- HEY! What were you doing in my house, anyway?!

If I get the B box, there's plenty fo room to rent. Rent's only 3 smokes a day, if you bring the trash bags.

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:00 PM
Haven't got any smokes. How about I bring K-Mart bags, two towels, and my own guitar and tin cup?

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:04 PM
Ok, but make it two tin cups. One to collect money, the other to hit those who don't give us money over the head, so we can mug them.

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:05 PM
Not all of us can afford to have two tin cups lying around. Hell, I was lying about the first one, it's actually styrofoam.

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:11 PM
Damn... Well, do you still have a shoe or two?

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:13 PM
I have two good shoes that I got off some bloke sleeping in a sewer drain, and he hardly argued after I hit him with that baseball bat.

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:17 PM
Hmm, I goign to ask if you'd kindly lend me a shoe so I could steal some wallets, but the bat will do fine as well.

Wait a minute- were you one of those nerds who hit me with the bat behind the furnace?!

PeeDee

No.

It was my spot, okay!?

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:20 PM
It wasn't your spot, I earned that spot after thoroughly cutting the guy that use to sleep there!

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:22 PM
You're the one who did that to Fred?

Holy croatia.

You can have that spot behind the furnace. Except you don't need it since you're buying that cardboard box and renting out a room to me. :D

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:27 PM
He looked like he had rabies, and I'm not sharing a furnace with a guy who's foaming at the mouth and growling at his toes.

Ah, that's true, we won't need the furnace if we have the box. Unless we move the box behind the furnace, there's an idea.

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:28 PM
That's an idea for a quick way to burn down your box, you mean.

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:36 PM
Not if we block the fire with a few homeless children. It'll be warm, cozy, and virtually fire free. In the time it would take for the fire to reach the box, we'd smell the burning children and we'd have time to escape. See? Fool proof.

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:40 PM
Of course, if the children burn up then we have no cheap labor and Wal-Mart stops sending us those checks, remember.

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:43 PM
True, true, those checks are the only good thing going for us, aside from not having to do any real work....

What about that drunken old lady? No, no, she's even more flammable than the box...

I know, we'll use YOU!

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:48 PM
Hang on. *I* have the guitar, okay? You going to just sit on the corner and hum, make money like that? No. I don't think so.

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 07:51 PM
True, true.... I can't play guitar, but I can play the drums. I could improvise with parts of the furnace.... And I could probably steal a keyboard from somewhere. Ha, a one-homeless-girl band!

PeeDee
10-10-2006, 07:57 PM
Are you intending to haul the furnace to a street corner, then? I dont' think so. And you're supposed to be quiet down there or old Mister Struthers will come down with his dogs again.

10-10-2006, 09:43 PM
B. :D

TsukiRyoko
10-10-2006, 10:28 PM
No, no, I would simply disassemble it, then drag everything down to where I'm going. And you don't have to worry about Struthers anymore, I took care of him a week or two ago....

PeeDee
10-12-2006, 04:45 AM
'bout time. Old bastard. Can we cook him?

TsukiRyoko
10-12-2006, 04:56 AM
There's a little of him left. When I took care of him, I decided to give some of my buddies a feast, and we woofed him down. I think there's a little on the thigh, maybe a few ribs left. I have barbeque sauce and everything.

You woofed him WITHOUT me??? Damn it!

I'd definitely go for B Tsuki. Far more character, more lived-in and homely. Roof needs a bit of work but nothing a piece of bin-bag won't fix. Plus, it looks as if it might float long enough to let you get out and swim if it rains

Yup - B is the wise choice. Go for it.

TsukiRyoko
10-18-2006, 06:48 AM
Well, we can't afford to sit around and wait for the next bum to skip along. If we did, the lovely homeowner would begin to spoil and nobody eats. :Shrug: Now, quit complaining and eat your thigh. Well, not your thigh, his thigh....You know what I mean.

TsukiRyoko
10-18-2006, 06:49 AM
I tried it out, it's a damn good floating box. I decided to give it a try for a day or two, see how it feels, but I had it tucked into a curb that collects a BIG puddle when it rains. I got a little seasick, but it WAS cozy....
