For some reason I almost

For some reason I almost always clean my house on Sunday. There's something nice about starting the week with your life somewhat in order. Today I went balls out: took all the rugs outside and shook them, washed all the floors, did three loads of laundry, scrubbed the bathroom, did a million dishes and sprayed for bugs. Right. I have these weird multi-legged bugs that sometimes show up in the summertime and they freak me right out. Most bugs I'm fine with, but these are centipede-esque and I have this thing about centipedes. I haven't seen any yet this year, and I'm hoping this ultra-toxic Raid I've been spraying into the baseboards helps. It's either going to kill the bugs, or the lady that lives downstairs.

Speaking of neighbors, there's these guys that live in the building next door. They're young guys that moved in a few months ago, probably in their really early twenties. They've taken to sitting out in front of the building drinking and being obnoxious. Normally, I wouldn't really care, (especially since it's hypocritical: I spent the better part of my early twenties sitting on the front stoop of 32fiddy Garfield Avenue), but between our buildings is an alley. And the sound bounces down the alley to my apartment and makes me crabby. It also makes me feel old, because I want to go out there in my bathrobe and say, "Hey, you kids! I'm trying to sleep!"

I'm not aging well.
