Yep, two more {hard} working days to Pennsic! I'm a flutter. Or at least without much sleep. ;-)

Too ruttin' hot here, but Mr. Weatherman promised today'll be the last day. If he lied, I'm gonna hunt him up...with Vera. Still amazed that 4 hour NORTH of here it was even hotter the past few days.

Oh, and more new neighbors in my apartment building.

Joy. Rapture.

To folks who will someday do the same, as few bits 'o advise for getting along with folks in close quarters.

1.) Do NOT move in at 11:45 p.m. This will really p*ss your new neighbors off.
2.) Sound carries, especially the bass from steros. If you want to figure out if your stuff is too loud, put it on. Pick up your keys and go into the hallway. Shut the door. If you can hear it, it's WAY too loud and will make other folks unhappy.
3.) TV home theaters do not belong in building with shared walls....EVER.
4.) Leaving your stinky garbage in the hall is just gross, and makes folks think wolves would have done a better job raisin' you than your folks apparently did.
5.) If your pet poops in the hallway...Clean It Up. (see #4.)
6.) If your roommate/boyfriend/girlfriend won't let you in at 2am, do not lean on someone else's buzzer unless you want said buzzer inserted rectally.
7.) Do not walk away from the electric stove if you're frying/deep frying something. It's a recipie for burning the building down. As a matter of fact, when doing that kind of cooking, keep the fire extinguisher handy. Or lots of flour. Do not use water.
8.) Do not practice with your garage band in your apartment. There is a reason it's called a garage band. Go find a garage....far away.
9.) Don't decide to put nails in the walls after 8pm.
10.) Unless you're on the bottom floor, jumping jacks are right out.

Okay, I'm a bit testy right now. Sorry about that.

Happy news! I've finally put up a piccy of my car's antenna ball that I made. Go check it out and let me know what ya think. :)

Well, that's all the news that's fit to print for the moment.

The new ones are only guilty of #1 and #4...so far. And they just moved in 2 days ago.

All but #10 are from this apartment complex. #10 is why I now live on the top floor.

#7 was the reason for the apartment fire this past March. Just what I wanted--to stand outside in 35 degree weather at 11pm at night wondering if I'd have any posessions by morning.

Hey, sounds like a building I once lived in.

Hope the new neighbors get a clue!
