Well, actually it more like half past five, but the point stands.

There is no ideal time for the neighbor's burglar alarm to go off when they are away, but early on a Sunday morning of a bank holiday weekend after a late night of mojitos and Beatles Rock Band ranks as quite a poor choice. Fortunately it went off after twenty minutes or so, and I had a quick look through the windows but I couldn't see anything amiss so no further action was required.

Today has mostly been taken up with reading Stewart Lee's excellent memoir of his career in stand-up comedy, playing the usual run of games and generally taking it easy. So, apologies for the lack of excitement folks ...

The other neighbouring noise you don't want is DIY banging when you are having a siesta.

Burglar alarms are designed to go off after 20 minutes. If no one's called the police by then, well, just don't feel guilty.

The only time they don't often switch off after 20 minutes is if they have been physically tampered with or it's a damaged due to a power-cut/surge.

I dunno. A night of mojitos and Beattles Rock Band followed by excitment of 'did they get broken into? is there someone in the house right now? OMG OMG OMG' sounds pretty exciting to me. :3

Of course, I'd have been straight over with a flashlight peering into as many windows as I could - all Nancy Drew style. ;)
