|10:01 pm - Weirdness|
All right. This will sound strange, but it's completely true. If it really has stopped, then I may not need to figure out why it was happening, but I'm curious.
For the past 10 days or so (I think I first noticed it... last week? That Tuesday?), around 4:30 a.m. every morning I wake briefly to hear a loud male voice coming from what sounds like a couple houses down the street from us.
It's not yelling--this is obviously not a domestic dispute. He's calling in a loud voice--projecting, like a speaker or actor or priest. And he's chanting. It's not English, but I can't tell what language it might be. It lasts for about a minute. Maybe two.
Every. Single. Night.
I've never heard this before. Not in this neighborhood, not anywhere. Anyone have ideas? We do have many different nationalities and religions represented in a few blocks, here, but... Still. Middle of the night chanting is a new thing here.
It didn't happen last night (that I recall), but I could have slept through it, so...
Current Mood: curious

There's probably no proper reason it would happen that early, which now makes me think it's a personal reason, and someone just likes dead-of-night chanting.
It happened again last night.
...at half past ONE. Which makes me think you're right.

Strange. Be a shame if you or another neighbor eventually had to complain to the police about this guy.
I have a friend who was a devout Lebanese Muslim before he came to the US and became a Christian. I once asked him what was the biggest difference he found between Islam and Christianity. I don't know if he was kidding me, but he immediately said "Not getting up at 5:30 every morning."
The second thing was sausage. :-D
