S&G 1

I'm so glad I'm moving.

The other night I was almost asleep and I felt Cory get out of bed and go into the living room. I think I fell completely asleep after he left, but he woke me up when he got back into bed, and he told me there were two very stoned guys trying to get into the apartment across the hall, and when they couldn't get in there they tried to get into ours instead. Cory said they were pretty out of it.

This is a normal day of sounds we can hear outside our apartment door:

Someone opening the front door
Someone clomping down the stairs
Someone knocking on the apartment door across from us
Someone getting let in
Music from the apartment as the someone is being let in
Someone leaving the apartment and clomping up the stairs and opening the front door

Over and over and over and over and over and over and over. And over.

Sometimes they're nice and include some shrieking of girls, or yelling on cell phones, or yelling at the people inside to open the door, or something similar.
S&G 1

(no subject)

We got our keys today, and I spent three hours with the rented steam cleaner and the vacuum cleaner and a wet rag, washing down walls and sucking the cranefly carcasses off the ceilings. We also took measurements and pictures, which will be forthcoming tomorrow, perhaps.

Then we saw Harry Potter. It was eh. And then right after the climax the film broke and the lights went up and the ad slides started. It was funny. They fixed it a few minutes later but we missed a little bit of the film I think. Oh well. And the lights never did go back down until the credits started rolling, and then everybody had to leave in the dark. Heh.

Cory wanted to go to a movie because he had a feeling the neighbors were going to party and he didn't want to be here during it. Well, he was right. The stairwell reeks of pot as usual, and there's a good bass beat going on and lots of kids yelling. Neither of us are talking about it but I'm sure we're both thinking the same thing. Thank goodness we only have to be here for a little while longer. Yes, Philomath is a ways away from places we want to go, like movies and downtown Corvallis and stuff, but at least it's quiet.

Tomorrow will consist of packing. How exciting.
