Welcome To The Neighborhood Amy Winehouse


Yesterday when I read that Amy Winehouse was moving into a new place, I really didn't think too much about it. I find that if you think about Amy Winehouse too much, then you end up having her show up in your dreams with that smile of hers and the next thing you know you are trying to get back to sleep and just seeing that toothless smile.

Today though, I thought about what a relief it must be for her old neighbors that she is leaving and how distressed her new neighbors must be. As you can see from the photo above, the houses are all right next to each other at her new place and the photographers are already out in force. It also appears as if the houses are so close to each other that Amy will certainly make the lives miserable of the families on either side of her as she will probably be yelling at them or attempting to climb over to their house through a window, and will certainly be able to hear her screams and smell her crack pipe.

Imagine you are living in an upper middle class London suburb and just enjoying your life and the next thing you know you have 100 photographers who are going to be a permanent part of your life, as well as Amy coming over to your house unannounced for dinner and bringing all of her friends and dealers. For one day it would be fun. For any period longer than that, it would just be a nightmare.

There goes the neighbourhood!

Goodgrief said...

Or one word: MOVE

Ror said...

Neighbors:
Place your speakers in window, crank up Billy Graham Crusade sermons. Then in a week or two, hitch a free ride with Amy to church!

No wait, that's Amy Grant.

Stop picking up your dogs poop. Amy will smoke it, no charge.

Obviously not going to make it difficult for her mates the paps. Not even a hedge!

juicy said...

Palm trees in the UK? Huh.

Mooshki said...

Wow, talk about falling property values.

Kelly said...

I wonder if the burglary in her old home in January is somehow related to her moving.

shakey said...

I didn't notice they were palm trees? What happens if this is LA? Could be Spain.

lutefisk said...

This does not at all look like it would be London. Could it be one of the Islands she has been visiting?

West End Girl said...

Lutefisk, the 'burbs of London do look like that. It's terribly stultifying though You can also tell by the paps clothing.

Her neighbours are very likely to be empty nesters so I doubt they'll put up with much of this crap.

ms_wonderland said...

We do have palm trees in the UK, the hardy type that come from New Zealand. There's two just outside my front door!

Pookie said...

lute, there is no way that amount of grey, that type of architecture, and that amt out clothing is remotely caribbean. just saying. ;)

Syd said...

I'm more fascinated by the fact that there are palm trees in the UK. I'll be damned!

Sporky said...

I just moved due to living next door to a crackhead. Now I live next door to an ugly yapping dog. It's tough to distinguish the two.

lutefisk said...

my mistake west end girl--I didn't remember spotting any palm trees when I was in London, so it was confusing.

Jungle007 said...

Ohhhhh
get over it ppl... there are palm trees wherever people decide to put them. I've seen rich people with palm trees on their property up here in Canada...
And according to Leno last night, we Canadians have never even seen "a black guy".

Mooshki said...

Jungle, did you forget to put on your sense of humor this morning? :)

Grace said...

Syd and Sporkey -- love your comments! You two are sooo funny!!

Sporky said...

Thanks Grace. Incidentally, I have a 13-year-old neice named Grace. That's not you is it? If it is, get your little ass back to class, bitch! And I love you. If it's not, sorry for the confusion.

Mooshki-- I'm going thru a very fun hormonal pregnancy. Gotta admit, blogging has been my vent as of late. :P
It's kinda fun to take my hormones out on strangers from time to time, and this way i dont have to worry about getting spit in my eye.
But, yes. Sorry. Ha.

Jungle007 said...

The best part is, most of the time, I re-read my posts whie later when the hormones have shifted and I'm like
"Why did I wrie that? I'm so evil. Wahhh!!"

It's kinda like having bi-polar. Oodles of Noodles.

stiffkittens said...

Jungle007 - You're amusing as you are. I hope the baby comes out ready to fully snark :)

Mooshki said...

Thanks for giving me another reason not to be sad I never had kids, LOL.

stiffkittens said...

I'm with you on that!

Every time i see a child throw a tantrum, i cross my fingers that i will never have an 'accident'... (No offense to the mothers on here - i just couldn't be maternal to anything that doesn't have 4 legs and purr :)).

Majik said...

stiffkittens....wholeheartedly agree--so I got myself a bunch of kitties and a tubal ligation. Two of the best things I ever did. :o)

bionic bunny! said...

palm trees are native to very few places, lutefisk, m'luv, including california. i forgot where they came from originally. i'm dense that way.

what i want to know about amy: does she have or raise pit bulls? if not, she's an improvement over some of my neighbors. and i'll bet her new neighbors have better help with noise control. hell, send her my way. the DEA already knows my neighborhood.

Jungle007 said...

Mooshki and StiffKittens-
And you should see the way my two cats resent me... They got ALL the attention before my first child came along. Now, they're treated more like cats and less like babies.

But hey, kids aren't so bad for those who want them. Look at Winehouse. Her father's pride balloon must be about ready to burst.

stiffkittens said...

Jungle007 - Lol! Thats why i'm only getting 18 year responsibilities that can't tell me how much they hate me... My cats rule the house, though.

Jungle007 said...

And mine have become real-life stuffed animals for my 4-year old :(

lutefisk said...

Thanks Bunny--I didn't think the climate was palm tree friendly this time of year.

blondegossip said...

that should be a reality show--amy whino is my neighbor. "celeb neighbors from hell" could then be second generation of the concept on a cable channel. Oy!

Mooshki said...

Bunny, a few years ago my ultra-trashy neighbors bought a pit bull, and one day I saw it out with their two young boys, and they were trying to teach it to "sic." Yeah, yeah, I know, it's not the dog, it's the owner, but man should you have to get a special license to own a pit!

Mooshki said...

Oh, and that wasn't even the Minneapolis family that had their little boy killed by the attack pit they kept in the basement!
