Is This What Kurt Does All Day?

My office is less than a block away from where I live. So frequently I walk home to get lunch or feed my cats or scream into a pillow out of terror.

Today I came home to eat something and as I approached the building, I saw this.



That's Kurt.

That's our building.

I still don't know.

P.S. Any good captions for this picture?

  1. He's practicing his stalking skills so you two can have a hobby to share together.

  2. It looks to me like he lost his keys! I can see myself doing that if I was locked out...

  3. Caption: I wish Eli would stop leaving the window open. Did he grow up on an island or something?

  4. Sometimes I wonder, "how does he surround himself with such odd people??" ...and then I read your blog, and it all makes sense.

  5. Kurt was just trying to race Leotrix inside to get chocolate cake. Mmmm cake.

  6. Eli, please. It's obvious. That's what they teach you in nursing school. He's practicing how to save people in case there's a fire in the building. Thanks for that particular view of Kurt ;)

    1. Or he got a job in Hollywood as Spiderman. If so, I would be his #1 fan.

    2. I love both of these explanations

  7. Spiderman, Spiderman
    Friendly neighborhood Spiderman
    Wealth and fame
    He's ingnored
    Action is his reward.

    When he's not saving lives in the ER, he's saving lives on the street. Spiderman!

  8. It looks like he may be cheating on you with another roommate...

  9. Aw, that's just Kurt, practicing his Parkour again.

    ReplyDelete
  10. i dont see how that can end well

    ReplyDelete
  11. What happened what you said something to him?? You better come back to this soon! I hate cliffhangers!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I assume that when you asked him about this, Kurt gave you a look that said, "Really? I can completely explain this and you are totes weird for thinking it's weird that I was crawling up the building." That's key: when someone does something wacked out, anyone calling them on being wacked out must feel like THEY'RE wacked out for pointing out aforementioned wacked-out-ed-ness. Wow. I am tired by that.

  13. "I want to preface this by saying nothing happened, nothing is on fire. Do we have a fire extinguisher?"

    ReplyDelete
  14. "How tall does a Stranger have to be to get in and out of my window? I guess about my height! Good to know! Tall girls are hot!" (Kurt to self) That's why you still don't know what he was doing Eli, he's plotting to take all your Strangers...or at least the tall ones!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Just the title and the picture nearly made me spit out my coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Caption: "Once again, Kurt's transformation from cat back to human came at a very inopportune moment."

    1. I love this comment with every fiber of my being.

    2. WINNER! hahaha

      Delete
    3. Yes. This also makes me believe that Kurt is the cat we have been seeing in recent posts.

      Delete
    4. Winner! I am not even going to try... :P

  17. Someone in this building needs "nursings"!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just practicing his spidey skills...

    ReplyDelete
  19. He wanted to jump but realized that he's terrified of heights.

  20. PARKOUR! PARKOUR!

  23. Twice up the barrel, once down the side. I'm kind of disappointed you had to ask :)

    1. Right. But is this a picture of twice up the barrel or once down the side. That's the problem we're all running into right now.

      Delete
    2. Naturally both, you couldn't have one without the other. He's discovering his senses. Accept him as he is, Eli. No matter how much you hate cats. You can maybe use him as a snuggie.

      Delete
  24. My Spidey Sense is tingling.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Don't jump Kurt. Living with Eli can't be that bad...

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's Kurt and that's your building, but is that your apartment??

    ReplyDelete
  27. "Oh, yes, that new cabinet I want to get from IKEA will fit in this corner quite nicely. I wonder if there may have been an easier way to measure this corner?"

    ReplyDelete
  28. When I was scrolling through my Facebook page and saw this picture I assumed it was one of those random ads that pop up for a movie or some obscure product used to help clean bricks... then I looked again and realized this was an actual person climbing a wall, but coming from it just gets stranger nothing is surprising

    ReplyDelete
  29. Spiderman! Spiderman! Does whatever a spidey can! By the way, I intern at the office building across the street from your apartment. We should have lunch sometime and watch Kurt practice his spidey skills! :)

    1. Eli, watch out for this Melanie person. I think she is stalking you. I read her blog and she sounds depressing. She doesn't eat meat either.

      Delete
    2. Hey hey Anonymous! I am sure plenty of us strangers are depressing and of the non meat eating persuasion. I am a stranger that doesn't eat meat myself, so there :p

      Delete
    3. I am of course trying to be light hearted and fun.

      Delete
    4. Anonymous, that's not funny. I pass by that building everyday when I go in for my internship. Of course I would recognize it. It's not exactly an inconspicuous building. And I really don't appreciate your comment about me sounding depressing. If you think I sound so depressing, how about you stop reading my blog? Stop your trolling, Anonymous.

      Delete
    5. Melanie, don't worry about anonymous' comment. Let's all meet where Eli lives and have a party. With Kurt, too, obviously.

      Delete
  30. Soon enough you will come to find out that Kurt became a nurse so that he could kill people.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Kurt to self: "Self, I will never, ever, never play Truth or Dare with Eli again! Damn him and his cozy Snuggies!"

    ReplyDelete
  32. Laundry pile tooo ddeeeeppp...must escaappppeee!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ya, how about.. "I immediately regret this decision."

    ReplyDelete
  34. Kurt is actually the queen of colors and was flying about when you returned and he had to crash land and transform. Daniel of course would never have this prob:)

    ReplyDelete
  35. "I've made a huge mistake."

    ReplyDelete
  36. Someone should show Kurt how to close the window from the inside.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Whatever he's doing there, it looks cool. Go Kurt!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Caption: "Aaand that's why we need Daniel."

  39. I smell pie . . .

    ReplyDelete
  40. "Not his apartment." That's your building, IS that your apartment?

    ReplyDelete
  41. What you do for a Klondike bar? What wouldn't Kurt do...

    ReplyDelete
  42. As Eli's hoarding problem escalated, Kurt was forced to take drastic measures.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Knowing Eli would be home soon, and hoping to avoid yet another demand for laundry services, Kurt did that thing you see in movies, where you go hide out on a ledge and hope no one sees you/steps on your fingers. Only Eli came from the wrong direction.

    This is a terrible caption. But I have a really funny story about being locked out on a balcony with open flames and breaking and entering...

    Is Kurt going to defend himself?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Spiderkurt, Spiderkurt. Does whatever a Spiderkurt does.

  45. You mean this isn't one of his modeling gigs?

  46. Caption: NO! I won't lose another lucky penny to the aliens, dang it!

  47. I have friends that live in those apts. Nice place! I have not creative comment, but second the office Parkour, Parkour! comment. That was my first thought. The Office Parkour Video

    ReplyDelete
  48. How high up are you? Because my butthole clenched at the thought of being there. For to my butt always clenches when heights get involved. I'm not sure how on earth that would save me, but it's my body's reaction. It's a miracle I've lasted as long as I have.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Admit it Eli, you locked him out on the porch before you left for work, didn't you?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Doing something that will give all the other ER nurses practice?!?!?!
