When shit happens...

The hubby sent me the link to this bizarre news story (in German only).
A 27 year old man fell into an elevator shaft in an unoccupied house in Frankfurt/Main in Germany. Not only did he fall 20ft but he got away almost unscathed because a 57 year old unconcsious and badly hurt woman stopped his fall. She was rescued and most likely owes her life to the bad luck of the young man.

Now I am left to wonder how two people end up in an elevator shaft in an unoccupied building?!

On another note, I got home yesterday and my friend and her fiancé have moved out. On the one hand I am glad to have the apartment to myself or ourselves ones the hubby is back. On the other hand it feels weird to be alone. It is good to know that she only lives down the road really.

The cats have turned on each other and are attacking the other whenever she isn't looking. To rid Lilly of some of her energy I let her out when I got home during my lunchbreak. The sun was beating down and it was really warm. Too bad it started pouring down about two hours later and I had to do overtime today. Needless to say this didn't go down well with our 'Princess'. I called her and she left me standing in the rain for five minutes before she deigned it to be the right moment to grace me with her presence. She was soaking wet.

I did manage to get back into her good book by feeding her king prawns.... Yep she is spoiled. Thanks heaven Maunzerl hasn't got quite such an expensive taste or else we'd end up in the poorhouse.

Now you know I totally not only went to try to read the article, but also bookmarked Spiegel Online for future perusal! :)

Heehee, wet cat!! I think my cats would stage a revolt if they got stuck in the rain. Although, I think I could probably find a bribe to get back on their good graces. :)
