And Weird Things Happen to Me
One great thing about living in an apartment is not being responsible for any repairs or maintenance. I'm handy, but I'm generally lazy about that sort of thing, so I'm not sure if house ownership is for me.

But in order for things to work out in apartment living, you have to stay on the good side of the management and maintenance. Calling them out one week for a vanishing mouse at 10pm is one thing. Having them come out two days later to fix the gap under your door jamb, well that's just follow up.

But calling them after-hours the next week when you look up at your kitchen clock and see this:

That's when they probably start to wonder what sort of racket you have going on.

On the other hand, I have a new appreciation for the ability of latex paint to stretch and hold large amounts of water.

    Your wall is gaining weight! That's, um, interesting. And you shouldn't be surprised about latex's ability to hold water -- in practice, it's been employed to hold much ickier fluids than that!

    i like the clock. where'd you get it? (i know that's kind of on the random side of a comment, but...) oh, are you on myspace?

    No, I'm anti-myspace, but that's a whole other post.

    The clock is my roofmates, but I'll ask her when she gets back from Florida.
