moving fiascos, i swear. first i moved into a basement-loud, cold, damp, many outlets were blown, no proper oven/range, no washer/dryer, within 6 weeks of a year lease it flooded. i was able to walk to the metro. i must say white noise machines are magical. but it did have a great cable package. so i moved again. this time to the ~country, about +5 miles from everywhere i go. off the 10th most dangerous road in the county (yes its fun). might get an islamic saudi academy down the street... 4 llamas next door-very evil looking, they make strange noises and move in packs. who the hell keeps llamas? this was around the time 'drag me to hell' came out w/ the evil goat-looking thing. feral cat, raccoon, and fox/wolf comes to the door. raccoon lifts trash lid, looks around, if there is nothing good he will replace the lid (thanks!). feral cat is cool, kina unsure about the others. infrequent indoor pests: ants, spiders, cave crickets (hate them, they jump attack you. i get rid of them in 3 years between 4 places), little frogs. seems like certain spiders and cave crickets squirt out babies when they die. i now have propane (we'll see this winter) and a septic tank (smells). also a gravel driveway (sorry car). we don't have trash pickup so i get to load the car up w/ trash and take it 2 miles to the city dump, stench increases proportionally w/ heat. no real control over indoor temp. upstairs ppl party lots and don't want me to park on the grass. oh yeah, and my commute is 1 hr 15 min each way, good thing i have studying to do. but its cheap and month to month. i'm sick of slumlords. any my car is lame but i just spent 1g fixing it so i better keep it a while.
