We kinda have a "celebrity" ourselves, but not in a nice way. He frequently gets arrested for DUI and holding very late parties in the middle of the week. In March he was arrested for shooting rabbits in his yard from off his porch. (Directly facing our house) He did come over and apologize for us having to call the cops. (and yse, I told him it was me that called) So, we do watch out for him and he IS the talk of the neighborhood.
WOW. You definitely win the crazy neighbor award....shooting rabbits from his porch sounds seriously dangerous. I think I've been very lucky as far as neighbors go here...only mildly eccentric, quiet ones!
Oh, in Brazil we have a bunch of subcelebrities, but I haven't met any of them...I had a professor at University that writes a section on the state's major newspaper, and the daughter of a supermarket on my street is a famous actress... but I never met her, so it doesn't count.
Oh sorry, he's not a real celebrity actually . . . just a guy who watches TV all day (ALL DAY) long who lives across the street from us. We can always see what he's watching from our window...! (The link at the top is the original comic) :)
Oh, I see (now I remembered that comic). Its one of those people with weird habits that we learn to recognize them (here we have oil man. Everybody has a story about this guy who is always riding a bike, wering just a speedo and sneakers, covered in tanning oil, no kidding. Then someday I saw him and I was like "omg he's real". Like some urban legend in flesh)
OH my god he sounds amazing! bahahahaha! Greasy goodness.
