There's an ad on Craigslist with the title "Condo w/ PRIVATE BASEMENT". If the best feature they can think to put in the title is that the public can't access the basement, I wouldn't want to live there.
At our condo earlier today, the power went out in part of our place in a slowly-fade-out kind of way. It took out our AC, one wall in the kitchen, and one wall in the living room.
Now here's the weird thing. If I turn on the dryer, all of those things work again. Sorta. The microwave turns and has its light on but doesn't warm anything up. The AC runs but isn't very cool.
And, as I also discovered, when the dryer then turns off, all of those things stop working again. Unfortunately, I found this out when my computer suddenly shut off, getting rid of my entire board game column that I'd been working on.
We haven't had any problems like this until now. I think it may actually be the furnace trying to draw too much power: when I flipped off the switch to the furnace, the light in the basement got as bright as it normally would be. But still, when the dryer turns off, so does everything else. Guess I'll have to call someone.
I've been meaning to make this a post for a while. As Bridget posted on this blog post [which has more photos], China has a lot of awesome shirts with strange use of the English language. I still maintain that she could make a killing selling these to hipsters here in the states. Yes, those are the lyrics to Party Up by DMX on that last part of that pink shirt.
Pick a successful theme. You could post pictures of funny cats. You could post pictures of people at Wal-Mart. You could post pictures of hipsters. Maybe you want to make fun of bad photoshops or of poor choice in book covers art. This is the one thing you're allowed to write about.
So check out the genius idea that this girl had. She made a blog in which she lived according to what Seventeen Magazine dictated for her life.
"The goal of this project is to simply explore a dying aspect of teenage culture. I will live my life according to the tips provided by the June/July issue of Seventeen magazine and Seventeen.com from today until the weekend of my high school graduation (June 21). Conveniently, this project will also span the Most Important and Magical Night of My Teenage Life (i.e. senior prom). I will use this blog to record my findings, and to provide commentary on teenage life/the adolescent experience."
I was talking a manager in the apartment business who said that there was once a resident in his community that rebuilt a motorcycle in his apartment living room. Oil and other stuff not only ruined the carpet, but the wood floors underneath them.
It was 10:00pm so I figured Starbucks would be as good a place as any. But, it turns out, in order to use their wireless, you need an AT&T account. No problem! I have an AT&T UVerse account. Well, except we just canceled that at our old place. No problem, we have a new account! Except the confirmation number and information is in Karen's email and that account didn't start until the next day. 30 minutes later of trying their password and username lookup I went to Denny's which has horribly slow internet that boots you from time to time. I got home at 11:30, an hour and a half after I left, meaning it essentially took me as long to post the article as it did to write it.
