Okay, so I found a new place – got all moved in and even found a free desk and bed. Good start right? The room is nice – painted a very restive green and I have some nice french doors that open out onto the backyard. Room mates are a’plenty but pretty nice, especially the landlady for whom I am quickly growing a soft-spot.
However…one of my roomies is a drummer. Nope, that little detail was not disclosed to me before I moved in. Ooops. Okay, so we had a heart to heart and he said he’d let me know ahead of time and that he only plays once a week. Well, small fib there since he’s played four times in the 9 days I’ve lived here. And ah, no dude, that garage is not sound proof.
On the other hand, the new neighbors (apparently they just moved in ahead of me) like parties. Lots of parties. Every night parties. Afternoon pool and rap music parties. Basketball, shooting hoops parties. I’m not sure if any of them sleep or if they sleep in shifts or????
Last night was mother’s day – and apparently that too was reason for a party. A BIG party. A LOUD party. Even my landlady called the police three times. None of us slept. The last time I noticed the clock it was past 3:30 this morning. Yawn. Wobbly legs and the mind is really in no shape to be operating without a license either – but you can’t really not do what you have to just because you are sleep deprived right?
This afternoon, early, they started again. It seems they needed a clean up, pool party – I lost it. I stood in the open french doors and screamed my head off. Me, miss mellow-yellow. “Hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“Turn it down! You guys kept us all up til three in the morning….”
“Ah, it was Mother’s Day”
“Are you laughing at me????%^&$%^&&**!!!!”
And so it went. Well, maybe I scared them just a little. I mean who knows what the crazy neighbor lady might do if they chance turning the volume up,eh? On the other hand, I may get a visit from some burly mafia types this evening.
Bottom line….I guess my life is going to be pretty noisy for a while. Dang. Anyone know of any good anger management classes? Seriously…
