This is a question World of Random

There's a pile of scrap timber, rubble and general turds in the road opposite my work with a hand-written sign reading "Free Shed". Tell us about random, completely hatstand stuff and people you've seen

Where I live, Random is the norm
Its a small place but attracts more than its fair share of nutters due to its 'spiritual' location.
Events that would seem random anywhere else just get nonchalantly shrugged at when you've lived here long enough .
A man in womens clothing having a full on fist fight with a white robed and turbaned devotee of Sai Baba over the attentions of a middle aged 'crystal' healer , um ok.
The straggly bearded guy who walks up just to tell you, 'you smell of sex, do you want to go to a hotel?'
No, there arent any hotels here, and he just shrugs and walks off.
The day the High St had a flash flood and someone surfed it.
My bloody camera ran out of charge and I will eternally kick myself for not capturing that.
The man who walks around wearing nothing but a wig, splotchy fake tan and a loin cloth.
The night someone with aspirations of being Spiderman somehow managed to crawl up the outside of my building, to pop his head over my 2nd floor windowsill just to say hello as my light was on and my window was open at 2am.
I laughed, we had a random conversation, he thanked me and left, I got on with what i was doing.
The man who stopped me in the street to hand me a broken china cup full of bits of plant material that would 'make me rich' if I burnt it.
The group of buddhist monks that knock on my door to tell me that for small donation to their temple they will bless my house.
The man who handed me a large pink plastic toy mobile phone and said someone wanted to speak to me.
I said 'sorry I'm out of the office' and he then related that into the phone.
The notice stuck to the lamp post at the end of my street asking if anyone had found a post office issue large red rubber band, a phone number was included .
I really had to sit on my hands not to ring just for the fun of it.

You get the idea
Where i live, random is the norm
I bloody love where i live

It is actually
Being in very beautiful mystical surroundings and ideal If you love randomness and buying nothing but candles and crystals
Not so ideal though when it comes to buying underwear or sewing supplies, that involves a trip to the next town, where I'm probably veiwed as their random

The White robed devotee is apparently quite the ladies man. You would never think it by looking at him.

dunno, I've been to Glasto a few times
you can buy cake there too, as well as candles and hippystuff.
Liked the place, on the whole - the abbey and Chalice Gardens etc .
We went for halloween once (Or Samwain), got a bit spooked when they started calling in the spirits from the east or whatever. Drummers on the tor at night were cool
