Clog dancing. Irish dancing. Texan line dancing. Tap dancing. Really any kind of jig or stomping. Amateur Carpentry. Really anything involving regular hammering. Learn to play a new instrument. Especially not a string instrument, or brass, or drums. Bowling. Really indoor sports of any sort other than like maybe paper football.
Good noises to hear :
Someone skilled playing piano. And some nice sonata type stuff, some Chopin maybe, not some banging Rachmaninoff. People having sex. But only if I mainly hear a girl moaning gently, no male grunting or bedframe banging. Kittens. No, I've never heard kittens, but just the idea of hearing kittens sounds appealing. Children playing. A mother singing lullabies.
One bad thing about living in Washington is that if I kill my upstairs neighbor it would be harder to escape to Mexico. Sure I could run to Canada, but it's way more likely I'd be extredited, and I couldn't keep driving through Central America and buy a bar in Colombia and secretly help the rebels while seducing a senorita. Plus I'd have to live in Canada (shudder).
