I should add that my neighbours were so bloody noisy last night that I first tried to sleep in the spare room, and then, when the noise was so bad that the entire house seemed to be vibrating, I rang the police. Yes! I have become Old Woman [Surname], scourge of youth. And I don't care. Seriously, I could hear every word of their crappy music when I was on the other side of the house. Anyway, the police were very nice when I rang the local station at about half two - I told them it obviously wasn't an emergency, but it was insanely annoying, and that the partiers were all over the road making a rumpus (which they were). But before the police could turn up, the party suddenly stopped, with a great outpouring of faux-skanger teens all over the road, all bellowing at the tops of their voices. And then, blessed silence, and I was so knackered I fell asleep almost insantly before I could ring the station and tell them not to bother.
While lying there listening to Eminem last night, I vowed to put on incredibly loud music right next to the wall this morning to wake up the little fuckers, but they must have constitutions of iron, because when I woke up at ten, they were already being noisy next door. Not that I would have actually blasted them awake, because that's a bit petty, although I really, really would have liked to.
